"Catboy Does It Again" (also known as "Yoyo et le Rembobinateur" in French) is the second segment of the 3rd Season 2 episode of PJ Masks.
Romeo reveals his latest invention, the Rewind-O-Ray, which can put everything and everyone into reverse (though it has a glitch that it tends to pause whatever it's used on). When the PJ Masks try to stop him, Romeo simply rewinds them back to HQ every time they show up. Worse: Romeo intends to eventually rewind the PJ Masks to a time before they became heroes, once he manages to fix the glitch.
The following characters appeared in the episode "Catboy Does It Again":
The episode begins at the museum where Connor, Amaya, and Greg have just finished exploring the new space shuttle exhibit. Suddenly, they notice that everything is moving backwards. In addition, some of the things pause where they are for a few seconds before they proceed normally again. Later that night, the PJ Picture Player picks up Romeo's Lab by the museum. Catboy starts running to the Cat-Car, though Owlette and Gekko stay behind. They have to see what Romeo is doing first before they jump in. Catboy waits, but only for a few seconds. He takes off to the Cat-Car, and Owlette and Gekko eventually decide to join him.
The PJ Masks arrive at the museum and crouch down behind the bushes. Romeo is making some adjustments on a new remote. He activates it when he points it at a flock of pigeons, but they pause when they move backwards. He hits it and reactivates it, and the pigeons continue flying in the same direction. Romeo makes some more adjustments on his remote, then points it at a cat. Catboy is shocked about what he is doing and jumps out of the bushes to stop him, much to Owlette and Gekko’s dismay.
Romeo commands Robot to keep the PJ Masks away while he works on fixing the remote. At this point, Owlette and Gekko also get out of the bushes. Robot throws a couple of trash cans and tries to catch them, though they easily deflect them and defeat him. They then run towards Romeo, but once he hits his invention a couple of times, points it at them, and activates it, they get zapped and rewind back to the spot where they begin to jump out and pause.
Romeo introduces his new invention: the Rewind-O-Ray, which can rewind anything he points it at. However, there is a glitch on the remote that causes everything to pause, so he is in the process of fixing it. Once completed, though, he can zap the PJ Masks to rewind them back to the time before they became heroes so they won’t stop him from taking over the world. Until then, he activates the invention after a few hits, and the PJ Masks rewind back to the Cat-Car and into headquarters.
Catboy becomes furious at what happened and declares to go back to the museum and stop Romeo. Owlette and Gekko refuse to, since that was the reason why they have ended up back at HQ. They ask Catboy why he had jumped in when there was no plan, knowing that they should stick together. He just reasons that he had to stop Romeo from zapping the cat, and declares that they should go right now.
The PJ Masks return to the museum and jump out in front of Romeo and Robot. Robot grabs Owlette and Gekko and places them in the trash. Catboy runs towards Romeo to stop him, despite his teammates warning him to stop. He gets zapped, and the PJ Masks get stuck together as he crashes into them when he rewinds. Romeo then hits the remote, and the team rewinds back to the Cat-Car and return to headquarters.
Catboy prepares to take off again, promising that they will stop Romeo this time. However, Owlette and Gekko answer that "rushing in has not helped," and that they should think of another plan to stop him, especially since they had never dealt with an invention like the Rewind-O-Ray before. Catboy pushes this off, unfortunately, fearing that Romeo might finish fixing his invention before they can come up with a new plan. He runs off, and Owlette and Gekko slowly join alongside him. Soon, as the night goes on, the same results keep occurring as the PJ Masks keep jumping in.
After many failed attempts, Owlette and Gekko tell Catboy that he keeps repeating the same thing over and over each time. He should "slow down and think clearly,” especially since, according to him, he thinks with his legs. It is the main reason why Romeo keeps zapping them. If they continue doing this, and the villain fixes his remote, then the PJ Masks will be finished for good. Giving this a thought, Catboy finally complies, and his teammates tell him what their plan is.
Robot is on the lookout for the PJ Masks as Romeo is finishing fixing his remote. He attempts to catch Catboy when he arrives at the scene, though he spins him around using his Super Cat Speed. Catboy then leaps towards Romeo, who is already finished making the adjustments on his invention. He zaps him to pause him, and mocks him about repeating the same mistake over and over. Catboy begins to accept his defeat. He comments how Romeo is really smart, and how he is the best out of all of the villains that the PJ Masks have fought throughout their missions. Romeo is flattered by his remarks, but becomes suspicious when Catboy is talking more than usual, and the others are nowhere to be seen.
It reveals that Gekko was on top of the museum and Owlette was hiding behind another building while Catboy was busy complimenting Romeo. Gekko uses his Super Gekko Camouflage to crawl towards the trash cans. He throws the trash high in the air for Owlette to blow onto Romeo and Robot, and placing a banana peel behind Romeo, he scares him. Romeo slips on the banana peel, and Robot slips on one as well as he tries to save him. The remote falls from his hands, which enables it to unpause Catboy.
Catboy grabs the remote and throws it to Gekko, who then points it towards Romeo. He gets zapped and rewinded right into a trash can that Catboy pushes out behind him. Catboy explains that the PJ Masks came up with another plan to stop Romeo by using his Rewind-O-Ray against him, and it worked. Romeo begins to accept his defeat; however, Gekko activates the remote on him so he can hear what he said again. The villain repeats the same actions, ending with him accepting his defeat. Romeo then quickly retreats in the lab with Robot in tow, and states that this is not the last time the PJ Masks will see him. The team proclaims their signature victory phrase.
The next day, Connor catches Amaya and Greg at the museum, who walk backwards down the stairs. They reveal that it was a joke, and the three kids laugh together, ending the episode.
- You shouldn't just leap into action or make the same mistakes more than once (think twice before you act).
- Romeo introduces his Rewind-O-Ray.
- The title of the episode can refer to both Romeo's invention, which causes the PJ Masks to relive the same moment over and over, and the fact that this isn't the first time Catboy has to learn not to rush things.
- Romeo said "You win this time, PJ Masks!" twice.
- This is the second time none of the PJ Masks say “It’s time to be a hero!” or “Time to be a hero!”.
- The first time none of the PJ Masks says either of those lines was in "Moonfizzle Balls."
- Catboy purposely getting affected by Romeo's Rewind-O-Ray as part of a plan to beat the villain is similar to Ladybug purposely letting Cat Noir get affected by Backwarder to defeat her in the Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir episode "Backwarder."
- Additionally, both villains were causing things to go backwards in time, but Romeo could pause things.
