"Flying Factory Out of Control" (also known as "Les Pyjamasques et la surprise de Robot" in French) is the second segment of the 8th Season 4 episode of PJ Masks.


Romeo needs the PJs' help bringing his Flying Factory under control, but they don't trust him.


The following characters appeared in the episode "Flying Factory Out of Control":


The episode begins with Connor, Amaya, and Greg finding destruction from the Flying Factory in town. That night, the PJ Picture Player shows the factory out of control. Before the PJ Masks can leave to stop Romeo, they find him outside HQ. He is not turning himself in, however; much to their surprise, he is asking for help. They let him in, but tie him up before he can mess with the controls.

Romeo assures that this time is different, even though he is a villain. He explains that he can’t stop the Flying Factory and assumes that Robot is responsible because he’s not answering and must be rebelling against him. The team huddles together for a quick meeting; whether it’s a trap or not, they agree that they have to stop the factory from causing more destruction. They head for the PJ Jet and bring Romeo with them.

Romeo has a plan: he wants to find Robot and get him to admit what he’s doing. Thinking that he’s going to trick them, the team decides to bring him to the factory and watch him carefully as he brings it under control. Robot comes out; Romeo calls him, but he ignores him, drops his communicator, and jumps down. The team refuses to follow him as they want to stick to their plan. Romeo is angry and upset that they can’t help him his way, especially since there is something special tonight.

The Fly Bots come out and attack. The team ignores Romeo’s help, thinking that it was a sneak attack and that he distracted them from seeing it, and tries to escape themselves, though this causes the PJ Jet to get hit and crash-land towards the park. As the four exit the vehicle, they see the Sucky Sucker spitting out colorful clouds. Romeo tells the team that they’re not listening, even though they’re supposed to be heroes, only for them to respond that this is because of his trickery.

Romeo sees Robot and chases him. The team interprets this as them planning something together, leading them to believe that Romeo did trick them. They chase them as the Sucky Sucker continues spitting more clouds out, a couple of which almost land on them, making them believe that this is another trick from Romeo. Despite Romeo saying otherwise, Catboy eventually catches him with his Super Cat Stripes. The team demands him to tell the truth, but he wants to hear what Robot is up to.

Robot reveals that he was planning a special surprise party for Romeo because today is his birthday. He wanted Fly Bot party lights and fancy clouds, but he couldn’t find the factory’s party settings. He also came down to pick up the birthday cake he placed in the oven earlier. Romeo is touched, especially since nobody celebrates his birthday, and apologizes. The team apologizes for thinking it was an evil plan when it was actually a birthday party gone wrong.

Everyone heads back to the PJ Jet as more clouds land, only to find that some of them have landed on the landing gear. Owlette flies up to see that the Flying Factory is in danger of crashing. The team huddles together to think of a plan, then informs Romeo that they finally need his help. Since today is his birthday, they’re going to make this night all about him because everyone is saving the day together.

The team holds the Fly Bots off and catches the clouds while Romeo and Robot work on an invention to remove the clouds from the landing gear. Once the villains are finished, they introduce them to their Multi-Machine made from Romeo’s hair dryer and blow the clouds away with it. The four kids relaunch with Romeo’s plan in mind, the team now with a new sense of trust for him while he expresses happiness that everyone is finally doing what he says. He zaps the Fly Bots to shut them down, then boards the factory with Catboy and Robot.

Inside the control center, Romeo resets the Flying Factory’s controls and sets them to its party settings according to Robot’s requests: a Fly Bot light display and a giant Romeo-shaped cloud. The team is about to leave when he stops them and invites them, plus PJ Robot, to his birthday party. They accept, and everyone enjoys the planned festivities until he announces that he has a new evil plan: making every day his birthday. The PJ Masks groan in response, but nevertheless, everyone continues celebrating as the signature victory phrase is proclaimed.


  • You must put aside your suspicions and trust someone to let them help you with the situation.


  • This is the first time the PJ Masks team up with Romeo.
  • In this episode, it’s Romeo’s birthday.
  • Romeo rides in the PJ Jet for the first time.
    • He is also the third villain to ride in the vehicle.
  • Romeo does a non-evil laugh for the first time (not counting his giggle when he was his infant version in "Big Sister Motsuki").
  • Romeo is the fourth villain to have a birthday party.
    • The first villain was Night Ninja in "Catboy and the Great Birthday Cake Rescue," the second one was Sorceline in "Les Pyjamasques et le cadeau de Sorceline," and the third one was Luna Girl in "Moon Rocked."

  • As of this episode, all of Tarabiscoville's buildings are redesigned to look straight instead of looking crooked.
