Cartoon Continuity is the universe where the PJ Masks animated series takes place, with all its events from all four current seasons being its canon. It is the home dimension of the Les Pyjamasques' descendants, the PJ Masks.

Characteristics

Reality

The Cartoon Continuity is the continuity where the stories and events of the television series take place.

Like the Book Continuity, the primary location that most episodes takes place appears to be the fictional Tarabiscoville.

Themes

The continuity has a comic book-y, realistic atmosphere with a sci-fi based setting, takes the common idea of superhero fiction with soft science fiction of scientific realism, while having aesthetics of contemporary superhero culture as seen in various superhero comics. Aspects that relate to the atmosphere and aesthetics includes most of the heroes and villains with science fiction origins, the characters resembling that of Marvel superheroes and villains, and the frequent use of in-universe superhero comics of Flossy Flash and Master Fang.

It also simulates the stories and lore of superhero comics made by comic companies such as Marvel Comics (specifically; e.g. Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Man etc.) and DC Comics.

To differ from the Book Continuity. It includes aspects such as:

  • The Cartoon Continuity having a more realistic atmosphere, such as the unanthropomorphic characters (e.g. Moths, Butterflies) with a more realistic appearance compared to their book counterparts.
  • The art style is changed to look like it was all just happening in a superhero comic book instead of a cartoon.
  • It changes the simulation of stories and lore in folklores and mythologies of ancient origins in a modern setting by having it directly focus more on how the relics inspired from that said mythology (e.g. Wolfy Bone, Dragon Gong and the Space Laser Staff) would come to possession by the holder whom wants to achieve great power, instead of taking the idea of combining the stories and lore of various folklores with Greek mythology storytelling style and lore.
  • The original France culture and lifestyle from the Book Continuity is replaced entirely with North American lifestyle since superhero fiction is commonly associated with American comic books.

Characters

The continuity mainly focuses on western archetypical superheroes and supervillains, while relegating the focus of mythical beings:

  • Metahumans - (e.g. PJ Masks, Newton Star and Armadylan)
  • Mad Scientists - (e.g. Romeo)
  • Mysterious Thieves - (e.g. Luna Girl)
  • Ninjas - (e.g. Night Ninja)
  • Humanoids - (e.g. Motsuki and Octobella)
  • Werewolves - (e.g. The Wolfy Kids)
  • Samurais - (e.g. An Yu and Munki-gu)



Unlike the villains from the Book Continuity, villains in the Cartoon Continuity such as Romeo, Luna Girl and Night Ninja have traditional superhero fiction motives that involve on them stealing, robbing prominent assets, unlocking secrets, and world domination in order to achieve the highest power in which nobody can stop them. In addition, they will need to disable or defeat any oppositions who are preventing their goals from happening.

The heroes on the other hand are mostly represented as Earth protectors whom they will learn their power on saving the day.

Unlike most characters from the Book Continuity, the characters in this continuity have designs and names related to western archetypical superheroes and supervillains. In addition, they also reference to the character lore established in the comic stories created by Marvel Comics.

Technology

Unlike the Book Continuity, the Cartoon Continuity is mainly oriented to science technology, and includes modern technology to reflect on the continuity's contemporary setting. Examples include:

  • Modern technology such as Cellphones, Tablets and futuristic-styled Interfaces.
  • Like Energuman, the PJ Masks chose to have an expanded number of genuine superhero technology, except it is more superhero comic book-styled, such as having PJ Spacesuits, PJ Rovers and PJ Wings.
    • In comparison to Les Pyjamasques cartoon-styled vehicles, the PJ Masks vehicles resemble more that of comic-styled superhero vehicles, while having weaponry gadgetry and functional vehicle windows for entry.
    • Most of the heroes costumes are energy-powered instead of being magical, and they wear super suits instead of magical costumes.
  • Compared to his book counterpart, Romeo's inventions mostly consists of ray gun-related and superhero comic-styled inventions instead of a larger choice of inventions that are more cartoon-styled.
  • Compared to Sorceline's powers that are magic-based, the powers that Luna Girl has is advanced alien technology.

Trivia

  • Unlike the other continuities, there are some inconsistencies and plot-holes with the TV series' continuity as well as its characters and events. Examples include:
    • Motsuki being portrayed a moth alien, though her original home was actually Earth when she was a regular moth.
    • As seen in "Halloween Tricksters," Catboy had to deepen his voice while Gekko and Owlette kept quiet so the kids won't know who they really are.
    • The PJs confiscating the Moon Crystal each time it is stolen by Luna Girl and other villains (occasionally).
      • This is dropped after the events of "Moon Madness," and it is unknown why the PJ Masks gave up their chances to retrieve it from Luna (except for "Space Race," where it was presumably confiscated from Luna for a brief time after the events of the special).
    • The PJ Crystal Totem's behavior is inconsistent.
      • In "PJ Power Up," when the crystal was knocked off its pedestal by PJ Robot, the PJ Masks lose their powers and costumes.
      • In "Romeocoaster," when the crystal's powers was drained by Romeo, the PJ Masks didn't lose their costumes, just their powers.
      • However in "Heroes of the Sky," when the crystal was taken by the Fly Bots from its pedestal, the PJ Masks didn't lose their powers and costumes. In fact, Owlette only lost hers and her memories when Romeo decided to drain them with one of his inventions, and ultimately their vehicles.
    • The unknown process of the residents of Tarabiscoville moving the Dragon Gong from Mystery Mountain to the museum.
