Les Pyjamasques, also known as the Original Les Pyjamasques, are the primary trio of their own picture book series, and Les Pyjamasques past counterparts from the Original Continuity. They appeared in the first 18 books.



Like their present-day counterparts, they are the superheroes of Tarabiscoville who fight against villains who try to alter the normality of the night. But they are also known for fighting monsters and nightmares as their main role, protecting dreams, and stopping troublemakers (in similarity to their cartoon counterparts).

Book Description

While everyone sleeps, three little masked heads poke out the tips of their noses! These are Les Pyjamasques! Instead of being in bed, they wander at night. Yoyo leaps and bounces everywhere like a rubber ball, Gluglu runs on the walls without ever breaking his figure, and Bibou, thanks to her wings, flies in the sky! These children are not sleepy! As soon as night falls, they put on their strange pajamas. And here they are outside playing like acrobats! But do they not know that when the moon is round, other creatures roam in the dark and roar?


The past counterparts of Les Pyjamasques consist of:

  • Original Yoyo: He is the original counterpart of Yoyo who only comes with jumping abilities.
  • Original Bibou: She is the original counterpart of Bibou who only comes with flying abilities.
  • Original Gluglu: He is the original counterpart of Gluglu who has the ability to stick at anything, and the ability to swim.

Other than the heroes' primary powers, the trio are also good at hand-to-hand combat during their fight against villains.


Like their present-day counterparts, Les Pyjamasques' past counterparts are playful, childlike and happy-go. However, unlike their present-day counterpart, they are more mischievous and playful than usual.


  • It is noticed that the past counterparts Pyjamasques are not interested on being invisible to the public and they tend to reveal their true identities and personal details, as seen in these books:
  • Like Les Pyjamasques and PJ Masks, the past counterparts of Les Pyjamasques never worked during the daytime.
  • Unlike Les Pyjamasques and the PJ Masks, the past counterparts of Les Pyjamasques will not need to use animal totems or amulets to turn their pajamas into their superhero alter-egos:
    • Instead, the past counterparts of Les Pyjamasques' pajamas turned out to already be in the form of superhero costumes.
  • It is possible that the past counterparts of Les Pyjamasques had originated from a folk region known as "nagual" which links to Aztec myths.
  • Alongside the other counterparts of Les Pyjamasques, the past counterparts of Les Pyjamasques are nicknamed after the PJ Masks and their members' names by most of the fans outside France, though the characters are considered separate characters by continuity.
