In contrast to its predecessor, ToeJam & Earl in Panic on Funkotron took the form of a side-scrolling platform game. In this game, it is revealed that a number of Earthlings hitchhiked on ToeJam and Earl’s spaceship on their trip back home after the first game, and are now infesting Funkotron. ToeJam and Earl must capture the Earthlings in jars, and ship them back to Earth. A side-mission is to find ten beloved objects of Lamont the “Funkapotamus”, the source of all funk in the universe, to persuade him to return to Funkotron.
ToeJam and Earl’s primary method of capturing the escaped earthlings is through the use of jars. The characters have an unlimited amount of these at their disposal.
