A hit preschool property gets a seasonal spin this month on Disney Junior, which will debut a brand-new PJ Masks Halloween special on September 25 at 11 a.m. ET/PT.
The popular PJ Masks animated children’s series launched on Disney Junior (U.S.) in 2015. Following the adventures of a team of kid heroes, the show sets out to inspire youngsters around the world with a message of inclusion and imagination, showing that even the littlest kids have the power to be superheroes.
From Hasbro’s Entertainment One (eOne),show follows the PJ Masks, three kids who don their masks and pajamas at night to become a hero team, to keep rivals and “baddies” from ruining people’s day. Connor becomes Catboy (with cat powers), Amaya becomes Owlette (owl powers) and Greg becomes Gekko (lizard powers). Together, they “go into the night to save the day” using their unique skills and vehicles.
In the two-part Halloween special, Orticia learns the meaning of ‘Trick or Treat’ and gets carried away by tricking, not treating. Romeo sees this as an opportunity to have some Halloween fun. He traps Orticia, uses his blast ray to gigantify her pumpkin minions and unleashes them to cause mischief across the city! The PJ Masks hear Orticia call for help and immediately jump into action to save the day!
Families can keep the celebration going with Halloween activity sheets inspired by the special, including pumpkin carving stencils and spot-the-difference puzzles, available here.
