"Munki-gu's Dragon"

"Gekko Loves Lionel" (also known as Gluglu et le nouvel ami de Lionel in French) is the second segment of the 12th Season 4 episode of PJ Masks.


Lionel wants to play with Munki-gu instead of Gekko.[2]


The following characters appeared in the episode "Gekko Loves Lionel":


The episode begins with the PJ Masks returning home from another mission. To his shock, when Gekko enters his room, he sees Munki-gu and Lionel playing together. Munki-gu leaves, leaving Gekko to inform Lionel that he’s his friend, not Munki-gu’s. The next day, Greg comes home to play with Lionel, but he’s not in his vivarium. Figuring that Munki-gu took him, the team takes off that night as soon as they find them on the PJ Picture Player.

During the confrontation, Munki-gu plays with Lionel using a stick. He explains that he didn’t take Lionel; Lionel came to him instead. Gekko doesn’t believe him and thinks that the stick is a wand from Mystery Mountain to make Lionel like him. Although Catboy and Owlette tell him that Lionel isn’t hurt and just wants to hang out with Munki-gu for a while, he takes off to find An Yu and ask her for some mountain power of his own.

Gekko soon arrives at the pagoda and searches for An Yu. He finds a wand that looks like what Munki-gu has and reaches out for it, though the mountain rumbles aggressively, so he decides to wait for her. At the same time, he is worried about Lionel never playing with him again. The wand glows in response; believing that it sensed Munki-gu up to no good and wants to help him, he takes it. The mountain continues rumbling aggressively as he leaves.

Gekko returns and finds Munki-gu and Lionel. Before the team can stop him, he chants a spell that makes Lionel loud. He runs away, and they chase him before he can wake up the whole city until Munki-gu catches him, calms him down, and the effect wears off. Catboy and Owlette inform Gekko that he made Lionel upset because he made him roar and ask if An Yu showed him how the wand works. They tell him to let Lionel play with Munki-gu, but he refuses and chants another spell.

This time, the spell makes Lionel itch. Gekko tries to fix it, only to make him grow as well, and he runs away again. Munki-gu catches up to Lionel and shows him how to scratch to calm him down. He then states that he’s not using mountain magic on him and breaks the stick to prove his point. Gekko just panics and is about to use the wand again when its effects eventually wear off. Lionel returns to Munki-gu and glares at Gekko.

Despite Catboy and Owlette’s attempts to convince that Munki-gu is just trying to help and that Lionel is upset at Gekko for casting the past spells on him, Gekko remains adamant that Munki-gu’s trying to steal Lionel away from him, especially with mountain magic. Munki-gu tries to interfere before he can chant another spell, but the wand powers up and gives Lionel the past effects, plus floatation. An Yu suddenly appears after meditating, believing that Munki-gu stole the Wiggly Wordy Wand, which juggles people’s words around.

Gekko lets An Yu know that he was the one who stole the wand because he thought that it wanted to help him. He wanted Lionel to like him and not Munki-gu. Catboy fails to save Lionel as he’s too fast, so the group catches up in the Owl-Glider. Putting his jealousy aside, Gekko works with Munki-gu to entertain Lionel with bananas and feed them to him while Catboy lassos him so they can pull him down. Unfortunately, the wand’s effects wear off, so Gekko and Munki-gu jump off, and the latter swings the former up to catch Lionel. The group safely lands afterwards.

Now learning his lesson, Gekko lets Lionel play with whoever he wants, which he decides to do so with both him and Munki-gu.


  • Don't get jealous of someone you love.
  • Don't get mad just because your friend is playing with another friend.


  • Munki-gu and An Yu meet Lionel for the first time.
  • This is the third time that Lionel becomes Lionel-Saurus.
  • Munki-gu enters Gekko's home for the first time.
  • Munki-gu joins the PJ Masks' victory pose for the second time.
  • The Wiggly Wordy Wand makes its first appearance.


  • When Greg goes into his room to play with Lionel, he isn't there. However, in the transformation sequence, before the PJ Masks transform, Greg is shown to be playing with him. This is probably because the scene wasn't changed.
