Dear Catboy, Owlette, and Gecko (or do you prefer Connor, Amaya, and Greg?):

We’ve been spending a lot of time together these days! Kind of a surprise, but I guess this is what they call a love triangle – I love my kid, and he loves you guys, so here we are. You guys are great at what you do, but outside perspective is everything, and I realized I could offer you a few career tips.

I know, I’m not your parents (it’s clear none of you have parents, because if you did, they’d obviously be aware that their children are out all night, every night, and that their town is both riddled with elementary-age criminals and lacking in law enforcement. Right?). Think of me as an observer who can help. A consultant, if you will. Here are some ideas to take your business to the next level:

Consider Downsizing Your Vehicles I totally get that the PJ Masks need to travel by both land and air– but do you really need both the CatCar and the GeckoMobile? Sure, one is more ‘rough terrain,’ but you guys are usually on pretty well-paved roads, and when you’re not, that’s the point of the Owl Glider, right? Seems like the Gecko Mobile is more ‘nice-to-have’ than ‘have-to-have’. Keep that bottom line low! Which brings me to my next point…

You Guys Need A Publicist I know, you do it for the love of the game. Because it’s ‘Time To Be A Hero’. But it’s not like people even know the PJ Masks are the ones keeping the town safe, do they? Seems like when the playground equipment is stolen or the whole town is suddenly made of ice, everyone just goes to bed, and wakes up when it’s all fixed. You guys could use some acclaim, doncha’ think? I don’t want you to get burnt out! Speaking of which…

Time To Talk Outsourcing Right now you guys are six, and you feel like you’ll be young forever! But sooner or later you’re going to get tired. Solution? I think you need to triage the problems that come in and see whether you really need to address all of them.

Don’t get me wrong, Romeo is clearly a budding young maniac and you need to fight back with all your combined strength – and while Night Ninja is mostly annoying, those Ninjalinos are no joke (but they’re so cute, am I right? How do you guys stay focused?!) LunaGirl, though – you guys, that’s just a bored kid who wants attention – or friends. You know it, I know it. It’s not a great use of your time. Three options here:

  • Is there anyone else you can send on LunaGirl calls? Have you asked the Paw Patrol what they do at nights? They can fly now, you know.
  • I don’t want to make assumptions, but she seems like she’s your age. Any chance you can talk to her (or her alter ego) at school? Work it all out before 3 AM?
  • This suggestion is a little out there, but hear me out… maybe ask her to join you? Not as a full member of the PJ Masks, obviously, at least not until she proves her loyalty - but could you offer some sort of honorary position? Obviously she’s OK with the hours, and you have to admit that LunaBoard could come in handy. No idea what to tell you about the moths, though.


Let me know what you guys think. If you like these, I have lots more suggestions for you! Also, I really want to encourage some leadership training for Gecko and Owlette – just because Catboy is the “leader” doesn’t mean it should be impossible for your ideas to be heard. And Gecko, buddy, stop blaming yourself for not speaking up – we see you.

Okay, I’ll catch up with you guys at bedtime! (Although I have to say, when you discover a crime in the morning, waiting until nightfall seems like it might let the villains get too far ahead of you… have you considered forming a sister organization in Australia?
