"Catboy's Great Gig"
"Catboy's Two-Wheeled Wonder" (also known as "Le vélo de Yoyo" in French) is the second segment of the 17th Season 1 episode of PJ Masks.
Romeo steals the PJ Masks' super vehicles, so they have to use their bicycles to stop him.
The following characters appeared in the episode "Catboy's Two-Wheeled Wonder":
The episode begins with Connor, Amaya, and Greg riding their bikes around the town. As they head towards the soccer field, Connor runs into a steering wheel. Amaya and Greg stop beside him, and the kids look up to see multiple car parts scattered around. They follow the pathway of scattered parts into the forest where a pile of stacked cars is located.
That night, Catboy declares to take the Cat-Car. However, when the PJ Masks get ready to jump in, they see that the vehicle has disappeared. They enter Owlette and Gekko’s base rooms, and the same thing has happened to the Owl-Glider and the Gekko-Mobile. They do have their bikes, though, which Catboy is reluctant to use, feeling they are only good for the daytime while their super vehicles are better suited for any mission. In contrast, Owlette and Gekko are willing to try, at least until they get their vehicles back.
In the town, Gekko and Owlette perform some tricks on their bikes using their powers. Gekko uses his Super Lizard Grip, while Owlette flies around. They realize how much fun it is to ride their bikes, especially while using their powers. Catboy is asked to try, but he doesn’t: although it looks like fun, he is disappointed about being heroes on bikes and thinks that their super vehicles are better.
The team arrives at the park where there are now huge walls of cars and a loud banging noise within them. Inside are the PJ Masks’ super vehicles hanging from Romeo’s new invention, the Electro-magnet, connected to his lab. Romeo explains that he was using the invention to steal all of the daytime cars when it also took their vehicles out of HQ. He is currently keeping them because he wants to test them all out and choose the best one for him to use. For the others, he will crush them with his magnet, as demonstrated with one of the daytime cars.
Romeo releases Owlette’s Owl-Glider from the magnet and takes it for a test flight. Catboy stops the team from going after him, believing that they will never be able to catch him if they are on their bikes. Since the magnet’s controls are outside, they can try to get the Cat-Car down and use it instead. However, Owlette and Gekko fear that they can crush their vehicles because they don’t know how the controls work. They decide to use their bikes and ride off, and Catboy reluctantly joins them.
Owlette comes up with a plan to catch Romeo. She chases him so she can lure him down. That way, Catboy can use his Super Cat Speed to ride his bike with Gekko in tow, who can then use his Super Strength to pull the Owl-Glider down. Unbeknownst to her, Catboy is returning to the park to get his Cat-Car back because his bike does not have any features like his vehicle has. Owlette leads Romeo on a chase on the ground. Gekko attempts to ride as fast he can so he can grab the Owl-Glider from behind, but he loses control and crashes into a pile of trash bags, allowing Romeo to fly away.
Catboy is by the Electro-magnet, trying to figure out how the controls work. He presses the green button, but presses it again when the magnet spins the vehicles around. Owlette and Gekko return to the park and tell him that Romeo got away because he wasn’t there when they needed him. Romeo returns as well, forcing the PJ Masks to hide. He magnetizes the Owl-Glider and releases Gekko’s Gekko-Mobile from the magnet and drives away. Fortunately, since the vehicle cannot fly, the team can surround it on their bikes. While they leave, Catboy sadly looks at the Cat-Car from behind.
The Gekko-Mobile drives by the town; around it are three ways for it to get out - each end of the street and over the buildings. Owlette flies over to the other end of the street, while Catboy and Gekko stay behind, Catboy to also prepare to Super Cat Speed up the fire escape in case Romeo attempts to escape over the buildings. After Owlette leaves, Catboy thinks of something that he believes could make this plan even better: the Cat-Car’s Directional Force Roar feature can create a sonic wave that will block Romeo. He rides back to the park again, much to Gekko’s dismay.
A few moments later, Catboy is back again at the Electro-magnet’s controls. This time, he presses the blue button, which makes the magnet spin around faster. He presses it again to make it stop, then presses the red button, which opens up the controls to the main computer. Meanwhile, Owlette comes face-to-face with Romeo from the other end of the street. She advances towards him, but he sprays her with the Gekko-Mobile’s jet spray. She loses control of her bike, crashes into Gekko who is riding behind, and the two crash into a pile of trash cans. Romeo drives over the buildings and makes his escape again.
Owlette angrily scolds Catboy when he returns for not being there to help out again. Romeo suddenly appears in Catboy’s Cat-Car and taunts the team for being on their bikes. He fires furballs at them, but Catboy becomes determined to protect his friends. He combines his Super Cat Jump with his bike to hit the projectiles. Romeo deflects them with the Cat-Car’s Directional Force Roar, then tries pressing multiple buttons to counter Catboy’s attack, but the Cat-Car loses control for a brief moment.
Romeo is angry; the super vehicles are not as amazing as he had hoped for. He decides to destroy all of them and drives back to the park. Owlette and Gekko are amazed at how Catboy saved them with his bike. Catboy is amazed as well, and realizes that his bike is actually as cool as his own super vehicle. He becomes determined to stop Romeo from crushing their super vehicles, and the PJ Masks take off.
The team circles around Romeo; Catboy activates the headlights by riding up the wall of cars. Romeo tries spotting the team, warning that he’ll destroy their vehicles if they come closer, but the lights are so bright he cannot see them. Catboy rides down as fast as he can and hits the remote out of Romeo’s hand, which Owlette catches and gives it to him. Romeo runs over to his lab where he can also control the Electro-magnet. He tries gaining control, but Catboy retaliates back since he now knows how the controls work and can even crush the lab with the super vehicles.
The PJ Masks each climb a separate pile of cars while the magnet spins around. They leap off their bikes and enter into their respective vehicles, and Catboy presses the button on the remote to safely release them from the magnet. Defeated, Romeo declares that this is not the last time they will see him and drives away. The team is happy to have their super vehicles back, and it’s all because of their bikes, despite not doing everything their vehicles can do. They can now return the daytime cars back to where they belong, and they shout out their signature victory phrase.
The next day, Amaya, Greg, and some other friends are playing soccer in the soccer field. After a failed attempt to score, Connor rides in on his bike, and performing a trick, he scores, much to everyone’s amazement.
- When the situation is necessary, you should be comfortable with using what you already have to complete a task/mission (use what you have).
- Romeo drives the Owl-Glider, Gekko-Mobile, and Cat-Car for the first time.
- This is not the first time a villain attempts to steal a PJ Mask vehicle, but it is the first time a villain succeeds at this. This does not mean he manages to keep them, however.
