The 1999 Tooniverse PKO format featured a group stage consisting of four round robin groups, with the top two members of each group advancing to another group stage for the round of eight where again the top two members advanced. The winners of each group played a best of three with the winner advancing directly to the finals, while the second place players had another best of three between themselves. The winner of that second place match played a best of five with the loser of the winner's match to advance to the best of five finals.
