001-General Information

This is a walkthrough for the Wii game called "Pajama Sam:
Don't Fear the Dark". It's based off a PC game, but unlike
the PC game, it doesn't have multiple pathways. That's kind
of boring.

You can email me at ilovecartoonssomuch@yahoo.com, but
make the subject blank if you do.


Darkness: An evil bad guy that wants to throw the world
eternal night.  He's in a comic book that Sam reads.  He
rules the land of darkness. 

Pajama Man: The hero that stops Darkness in the comic book
that Sam reads.

Mom: She comes in to get Sam to stop reading the comic book
and go to bed.  Oh, and she wants Sam to pick up his socks.

Sam: Our mild mannered hero tries to go to sleep, but can't
because he's scared of darkness (who lives in Sam's
closet).  Bravely, he gathers his superhero things and
turns into...

Pajama Sam: The world's youngest superhero, Pajama Sam goes
into Sam's closet, which leads to the land of darkness.
His mission: find Darkness and capture him in his portable
bad guy containment unit.

Mean Trees: The mean trees capture Pajama Sam and steal his
things.  The leader of the trees has a lazy eye.

Nice Tree: She's nicer than the other trees.  She doesn't
complain about anything, but then again, that's against the

Otto: A boat made of wood.  He's scared to go into the
water, so you'll have to prove to him that wood floats
before he'll take you for a ride.  He also knows a lot
about geysers.

British Trees: Cor Blimey!  British trees block the way to
the well, and they won't let you pass because they're mean!
Luckily, they're dumb, so you can easily fool them.

Salad Liberation Front Leader: A carrot with a goatee; he's
probably wearing Sam's mask to protect his identity.  After
all, he's on a dangerous mission to free the carrots who
are captive in Darkness's kitchen.  Help him save the
carrots and he'll give you the mask.

Well: The well is not very sociable; he spends his time
pointing out small, irrelevant details.

King: He's a mine cart, and spends a lot of time
complaining about how he's rusted to the track.  Once you
get rid of his rust, though, he's an okay guy.

Wink and Blink: The hosts of "The Brain Tickler".  You'll
have to win the game to go past the doors of knowledge.


Deep in the bowels of an old power plant, a sinister plot
is hatching...

Darkness: Ha ha!  At last the time has come to hatch my
sinister plot!  This lever will activate my BLACKOUT
GENERATOR and the whole world will be thrown into eternal

Heroic voice: Not so fast, Darkness!

Darkness: Wha-?!  PAJAMA MAN!

Pajama Man: That's right, fiend!  And I have some gadgets
of my own!  Take that!

Darkness: AAARGH!!  Not the Illuminator Mark V!!! tm

Pajama Man: (It takes 20 "D" batteries, you know.)  Do you
have anything to say before you're sucked into my portable
bad guy containment unit? tm

Darkness: I--


Just then, Sam's mom interrupts his fantastic comic book to
tell him to pick up his socks.  She leaves the room to let
him go to sleep, but this time, with the lights off.

"There's no need to hide when it's dark outside.  There's
no need to hide when it's dark outside," Sam tells himself.
"I'm not scared.  Darkness lives in my closet, but I'm not
scared.  Okay, I'm scared."

But hiding while Darkness hangs out in your closet is the
wrong thing to do.  Sam has to be brave, just like Pajama
Man.  This looks like a job for...Pajama Sam!

Sam puts on his cape, and is ready to be Pajama Sam.  But
it's not just a cape that makes someone a superhero.  He'll
need a mask (to hide his secret identity), a flashlight
(the Illuminator Mark V Jr. flashlight) and his lunchbox
(I mean, portable bad guy containment unit).

The missing things can be in various places: the trashcan,
under the rug, under the bed, behind the scarf, and in a
dresser drawer are all places they can be.

Once you get those things, you're ready to go into the
closet and capture darkness!

Oh, before you do, remember how mom wanted all the socks to
be picked up?  20 socks will be randomly scattered
throughout this game.  One could be on the floor here.
Keep an eye out for socks while playing.

Upon entering the closet, Sam gets sent into the land of
darkness.  Go down the road, and you'll end up over a
bridge.  There's a piece of wood floating on the water
(this will become important later), but you can't reach it
now, so just continue down the road.

Oh no!  Pajama Sam gets caught by some mean trees, who
perform a customs inspection.  They steal the lunchbox,
mask, and flashlight (but not the socks...I wonder why) and
leave Pajama Sam hanging upside down off of a branch.

Click on the rope to get free.  A friendly tree lets you
keep the rope.  Go back down the road to where the board
was floating on the river.

Move the pointer to the bottom of the screen, and Pajama
Sam's inventory pops up.  Click on the rope, then the board
to use the rope to get the board.  You lose the rope, but
at least you get the board.

Go down the road again.  One screen past the nice tree,
you'll find a crossroads, leading to the mines, the boat
docks, and Darkness's house.

003a-The Boat Docks

Talk to the boat.  He's Otto.  Try to go across the river,
but Otto won't let you.  He has a friend, whose dentist's
brother sank in the water.  You'll have to prove to Otto
that wood floats.

Luckily, you've got a board.  Use it in the small pool of
water.  Inspired by this, Otto tries to float.  It works!
Otto proudly says his signature line, "I'm doing it; I'm

Hop in Otto and go across the river.  You can go four ways
from here.  Go to the opposite shore of the river, which is
up/right from here.

The other bank of the river has a path leading to a well.
Go down the path.  Oh no!  British trees will block your
way, not allowing you to pass.  It seems they're racist
against non-trees.

Well, we'll just have to fool the trees.  Go to Otto, and
click on the hollow log.  It gets stuck on Pajama Sam's
head.  Using this as a disguise, go down the road and past
the British trees, who are fooled by the disguise even
though you can still see most of Pajama Sam.

Past the trees is the well.  Look in the garden patch.  One
of the carrots is wearing your mask.  He's the leader of
the "Salad Liberation Front", an undercover group that
wants vegetables to be the main course.  Cauliflower power!

The carrot will team up with you, and he promises to give
you the mask if you take him to Darkness's kitchen. Then,
go back to Otto (Pajama Sam automatically puts on his
disguise).  Go down the river (up and to the left).

You find a bridge, but the bridge needs a toll, so you
can't go across it.  Once you get gold (from the mines),
you can go across the bridge, where you can play a minigame
called cheese and crackers.

Head to the left again, and you reach an abandoned shack.
Inside is your flashlight! However, the door is missing a
doorknob, so we can't get inside the shack. Once you get
the doorknob from Darkness' House, you can get in by putting
the doorknob on the door, oiling the hinges, going inside,
and standing on the barrel.

For now, just take the oil can. Go down the waterfall past
the shack.  You go down the waterfall into caverns below.
Your lunchbox is underwater here, and you can use a magnet
to reach it. The magnet is found in Darkness' House.

Go left.  Here will be more caverns.  Left of that is a
geyser.  Go to where the water shoots up to be shot up.
You get shot up and land back on the river. Examine the
geyser if you want some gratuitous educational content.

Go left, and you end back at the start of this area.

003b-The Mines 

Inside the mines is King, the mine cart.  He's complaining
about how his wheels have rusted.  Use the oil can (gotten
from the abandoned shed by the river) to get rid of the
rust.  King will thank you by giving you free rides
wherever and whenever you want.

Go right, down the mines.  You end up near a washing
machine.  Go down the left tunnel to make it to the water
meter area.  Click on the water meter and remember the
number on it for later usage in Darkness' house. 

Go left from the water meter area to the one-way door area.
You can't go through the door (it's one-way), so just pick
up the pickaxe and go left.

You make it to the gold room.  Go into the gold room and
ride around it (pick up any socks along the ride).  At some
points in the ride, there are multiple paths you can take.
Click on a path to take it, or else King will go down the
same path he does every time.  Experiment with these paths,
and soon you'll find the gold.

In the gold part of the gold mine, use the pickaxe (it
breaks) to get the gold.  You can use the gold to pay the
toll so you can cross the bridge by the river.  Exit the
gold room.

From the gold room, all you have to do is go left once to
make it back to the entrance of the mines. That's all you
have to do in the mines: See the water meter and pick up
some gold if you want to play the Cheese and Crackers

003c-Darkness's House 

To get inside Darkness's house, you must first jump into
the basket (the one labeled "D").  Then throw the three
rocks into the other basket.  The next time you come by,
the rocks will automatically let you enter Darkness's house
if you jump into the basket.

Once in Darkness's house, you have two doors you can enter,
and some stairs.  Go through the left door to enter the
kitchen. Our good friend Carrot says his fellow carrots are
being held hostage here. Use Carrot on the fridge to start a
musical number which ends with Sam getting his mask back.

You can go through the right door to reach the dancing
Furniture room.  As soon as you enter, the furniture stops
dancing.  This room serves no purpose in the Wii edition of
the game, but it had a purpose in two of the alternate
pathways in the original PC version.

Go up the stairs to reach the doors of knowledge and a
stair leading to darkness.  Ignore the stairs and click on
the doors.  The doors are really game show hosts for the
game "The Brain Tickler".  You're the next contestant,
Pajama Sam!

Pajama Sam's interests include skydiving, channeling
ancient spirits, and stamp collecting.  Wait, he's making
that up.  Sam doesn't collect stamps.

Once you win, go through the doors of knowledge.  You end
up in a very strange hallway.  Click the doorknob of room
3G to get it to fall off.  You can then use this doorknob
to open the abandoned shed by the river, so you can get
your flashlight.

Go through the left door (the blue one) to enter the music
room.  You can talk to the characters hear and hear songs
if you want to.

Go back to the weird hallway and go right.  There's a door
On the floor.  Enter it (gravity does not apply here; you
can walk up a wall to exit through the doors of knowledge)
to find a book room.  Read the book of clues.

The book of clues indicates a color.  See the bookcase
behind you?  Click on all of the books that are that color
in the bookcase.  This reveals a revolving wall, which has
a magnet behind it.  To get the magnet, you'll have to
return to this room.

Go through the revolving wall, and down the stairs.  You
can press the button on the right door to open it and get
to the mines. You can then go through Darkness' House again
to get the magnet.

Or, you can go through the doors on the left, and ride the
dumbwaiter up, if you happened to use the dumbwaiter while
in the kitchen. Also in this room, you can make fun potions.

So, since this is the Wii version of the game, that's pretty
much it. Go get the magnet as described above, then head to
the river. Use the magnet on the underwater lunchbox to get
it, and use the doorknob from the area behind the Doors of
Knowledge of the waterside shack. Then, use the oil can on
the door, go inside and stand on the barrel to get the
flashlight. All right! Sam has all three items now!

003d-Beating Darkness

Once you have all your stuff, it's time to beat Darkness!
Go to the doors of knowledge (AKA Wink and Blink, the game
show hosts).  Remember the stairs to the left of them?  Go
up them.  You'll reach the Darkness's door.

Enter the room.  Hey, he's locked in the closet!  Open the
chest on the wall to get the key.  Whoops, a bunch of keys
fall out!  Check the chest again to get the real key, and
the closet door is unlocked.  Simply enter the closet to
defeat Darkness and win the game!


Here's a quick handy guide onto where everything is.

Flashlight: The flashlight will be in a shack by the river,
which means you'll have to find a doorknob and oil the door
hinges with an oil can.

Lunchbox: The lunchbox will be underwater, for which you'll
need a magnet.

Mask: The mask will be on the carrot, which you'll have to
take to Darkness' refrigerator.

Bert the Pencil: In the park past the tollgate.
Board: Floating under a bridge.
Doorknob: On the wall in Darkness's house, past the doors
of knowledge.
Gold: In the gold mines, gotten with a pickaxe.
Key: In the cupboard in Darkness's bedroom.
Magnet: On the other side of the revolving bookcase.
Oil Can: By the shack on the river.
Pickaxe: By the one-way door in the mines. 
Rope: Sam is tied up by mean trees with this.
