|“||Yum, yum, eat 'em up!||„|
|~ The Talking Toilets' catchphrase|
The Talking Toilets are the secondary antagonists of Captain Underpants and the Attack of the Talking Toilets, led by the Turbo Toilet 2000. They are also minor antagonists of the 2017 DreamWorks animated film Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie.
Role in the Book
They were accidentally unleashed from an invention, the PATSY 2000 (built by Melvin Sneedly) at a science fair by George and Harold. The Talking Toilets succeed in devouring all the teachers except Mr. Krupp, who becomes Captain Underpants. Our hero defends the boys against the Talking Toilets. They are outnumbered until Captain Underpants, George, and Harold discover a pot of creamed chipped beef in the school cafeteria. They fire the beef into the Talking Toilets' hungry mouths, causing them to get sick and throw up all the teachers. Subsequently, they succumbed and died. Their corpses were later taken and deposited at Uranus by the Robo-Plunger.
Role in the Film
The Talking Toilets appeared briefly in the 2017 DreamWorks animated film Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. Following the defeat of Professor Poopypants and the Turbo Toilet 2000, the toxic waste from the deceased Turbo Toilet 2000 brought all of the town's toilets to life, bent on destroying the town and devouring everyone. The talking toilets are first seen attacking a restaraunt where Mr. Krupp and the school lunch lady Edith are dining at. Upon snapping his own fingers after seeing the talking toilets, Krupp transforms himself into Captain Underpants and helps George and Harold in fighting off the Talking Toilets for good, much to Edith's surprise and admiration.
