Added DiffLines:

* GrowingTheBeard: The series started out as just simple harmless children's entertainment and little else. However, by the 4th and 5th books, Dav's commentary and messages become clear to more observant readers, with just enough subtlety to keep smaller readers entertained but still encouraged.


Added DiffLines:

* TheWoobie: Kindergartner Harold. His dad's gone before the book starts, he's bullied on a daily basis, and it's all but stated he draws constantly because of everything that's happened to him. It's no wonder he's friends with George after the kid saves him.

Added DiffLines:

* SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped: Dav will never let you forget that ''kids need imagination and fun in their lives'' and it plays as much of a role in their future as having an education.

** Granted, there were unordinary circumstances. Poopypants/Tinkletrousers was eventually going to crack and the fact it happened at Jerome Horwitz kinda puts it in debate. With Wedgie Woman, they were unaware of the fact that the Hypno-Ring has reverse effects on women.

With Wedgie Woman, they were unaware of the fact that the Hypno-Ring has reverse effects on women. Also, the villains of the 3rd book, the aliens, was completely unrelated to them at all.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical: Captain Underpants and the Sensational Saga of Sir Stinks-A-Lot has the villain create a formula to have children turn into robotic rule-followers, "tentative obedient slaves" as Pilkey puts it, and he seeks to capitalize on the formula. Quite a few people have read it as sending a message about over-medicating ADHD children, especially since Dav Pilkey had been diagnosed with ADHD. When asked, Pilkey said it was a neat idea, but he'd just written it as a fictional story about mind-control.
