The following characters appeared in the episode "Pirates Ahoy!":


The episode begins with the PJ Masks chasing Night Ninja and his Ninjalinos, who have stolen the Pirate Ship float to make it their own pirate ship. Catboy is about to fire a Super Cat Stripe to reel them in when they make their escape in the canals. Due to his fear of water, the team can’t advance any further. Nevertheless, they decide to catch the ninjas next time and head back for the night, Owlette and Gekko excited for a pirate-themed adventure.

The next day, Connor tries to get over his fear of water by attempting to jump through a sprinkler in his backyard while Amaya reads about the city’s canals and pirates in preparation for tonight’s mission. She and Greg also get themselves hyped up for defeating the ninjas as Captain Owly and Master of the Deep, respectively, especially since they attempted to be pirates last time.

Tonight comes; at HQ, the PJ Picture Player shows the ninjas building a dam in the canals, but with no clear indication of what Night Ninja’s plan is. Catboy is terrified to find out that the team will be chasing them in the water through the PJ Rovers’ aquatic mode. Owlette and Gekko assure him that they can take care of the mission while he makes sure as the ship’s cat that any of the ninjas don’t escape. The team gears up in their suits and takes off in the canals.

Owlette and Gekko arrive at the ninjas’ location and chase them down, her deflecting the Sticky Splats towards them and him going underwater and suddenly popping out in front of one to scare him. Catboy follows behind trying not to fall in the water. As the rest of the team continues their pursuit for the ninjas, he notices that some of them are bringing objects to different locations while the others confronted are giving up too easily. He climbs up a gate to get a better look, and sees that they’re leading the team away so they can do something else.

Catboy then sees that the Ninjalinos have built a trap, though is too late to warn Owlette and Gekko as they have driven into it, and are now trying to avoid the Sticky Splat attack. He pushes himself to drive over to the location and knock the Sticky Splats away before they could hit them. The Ninjalinos are forced to retreat as the projectiles hit them instead. Now realizing that they’ve been tricked, the team escapes the trap and follows more retreating Ninjalinos as they arrive at more blockades. They soon reach the final one that is blocking the entrance to the moat around HQ.

Night Ninja confirms that part of his plan was to lure the team away so he can enact the final part, which is to capture HQ and gain access to all of its power and supplies. Just in case the team attempts to stop them, they have captured PJ Robot and are guarding the place with Sticky Splats. The team realizes that they have messed up the mission due to Owlette and Gekko’s overconfidence in defeating the ninjas and playing brave pirates and Catboy’s fear of water. In order to fix this, they agree to work together, as well as help Catboy combat his fear because he’s also part of the team.

Catboy goes on land to direct the ninjas’ attention away with the warning that there will be water involved and encouragement that he can conquer his fear. Owlette jumps over the makeshift dam and catches PJ Robot. The two fly into HQ and go into defense mode through the usage of its Owl Beams and furballs, causing a couple of Ninjalinos in the water to crash. Meanwhile, Gekko dismantles the dam and follows the other Ninjalinos chasing Catboy underwater until they reach the bridge, where he knocks them away.

The team then regroups in the moat and spins the pirate ship around. Night Ninja throws a Sticky Splat in an attempt to stop them. It heads towards Gekko, but Catboy pushes him out of the way, knowing that even though he doesn’t like water, it wouldn’t stop him from saving his friends. He ties a Super Cat Stripe to the mast so Gekko can pull the ship down, and Owlette blows the ninjas overboard. Catboy jumps to the top of HQ to take down the pirate flag they placed on earlier.

The ninjas retreat in defeat, Night Ninja chasing the Ninjalinos on land as they swim away, leaving the PJ Masks to sing a pirate chant to celebrate their victory.
