Trivia

  • In the 2nd season of the Pac-Man TV series, a character known as P.J. joins the cast. He shares some similarities with Jr. Pac-Man, and in one episode he states his full name as "Pac Junior". But PJ is actually the nephew of the titular hero, and as such is considered a different character.
  • The character "Pac-Little" from Pac-Store is intended to be Jr. Pac-Man, but his name was changed due to Bally Midway copyright issues. He is not specifically stated to be Pac-Man's son, but it is made quite obvious that he is, in fact, Junior (unlike PJ, who has few connections to Junior other than by name).
