Princess Platoon is a series of movies about a group of princesses. D.W. and Emily both like to watch them, and they admire the princesses who appear in the movies. The series is heavily merchandised with numerous Princess Platoon-branded products, like a collector's lunchbox. Hana is also a fan of the franchise.[1][2]

Princesses

Only the princesses Perky, Peppy and Prancia are seen on the fan merchandise, though D.W. mentions that there are more princesses.

  • Princess Perky: She wears the "abra-tiara" which helps her rule the kingdom, protects all animals, and keeps her hair "just so". There is Princess Perky bubble bath and a Princess Perky doll with a pull-string that makes her say "There's a princess for everyone! Fun-believable!" At the Princess Party, Amanda plays her.
  • Princess Proper: She has a magic hand mirror.
  • Princess Peppy: She has a magic wish wand. At the Princess Party, Emily plays her.
  • Princess Prancia: She is a centaur (her upper body is an anthropomorphic dog) with long red hair.
  • Princess Penguin: Only mentioned.

Disappointed by the official princesses, D.W. and Lydia create two new princesses. Eventually, Emily recognizes them as part of the platoon.

  • Princess Ana: Based on the real-life princess Ana de Mendoza of whom D.W. reads in a book. She lost an eye in a sword-fighting duel. She tried to overthrow a bad king, and had to hide as a nun. D.W. plays her.
  • Princess Prophecia: Princess of the future. She sits in a wheelchair and resembles Princess Leia from Star Wars. Lydia plays her.

"The Good, The Bad, and The Binky" features a character named Princess Penny who fights a rat ogre. Emily has a Princess Penny doll, but it is not certain whether she belongs to the Princess Platoon franchise.

In "The Princess Problem," when D.W. goes to Emily's house to play with Princess Platoon toys, a Princess Sneeze-and-Wet doll is seen.

Movies

The only known movie title is Princess Perky and the Tower of Trolls. In the movie, Princess Perky is trapped in a tower by two trolls, who are trying to take her tiara. She escapes by creating a rainbow slide with her magic tiara.

This movie is D.W.'s favorite of the series. She knows the song that Princess Perky sings by heart.

Is it a curse? Is it bad luck?
This perky princess keeps getting stuck
Captured by villains who want my tiara with powers
(Hey, wait! You're a magical crown.)
I'll make a rainbow so I can slide down
So maybe one day I will learn to steer clear of towers
