* ActorAllusion: In "Sweet Pepper" Pepper has a crush on another animal and tries to change herself to impress him. In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' episode "Simple Ways" Rarity does the same thing. Both Pepper and Rarity are voiced by Creator/TabithaStGermain and both episodes aired the exact same week.
** Russell is not the first character SamuelVincent played who is either a [[WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground hedgehog]] or a [[WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy neat freak]].
** In "Russell Up Some Fun" Russell utters, "Messy, messy, messy!" This was a line Creator/SamuelVincent's character Edd said a lot in ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy''.
* AluminumChristmasTrees: The idea of jet fuel in a cleaning agent makes a bit more sense when you remember that people used to clean their clothes with gasoline.
* CrossDressingVoices: Jasper Jones is voiced by Creator/KathleenBarr.
* TheDanza: "Terriers and Tiaras" features a dog named Sam U.L., voiced by Creator/SamuelVincent. Also counts as a PunnyName.
* FakeBrit: Delilah, voiced by Tabitha St. Germain.
* FanNickname: "Twilight Barkle" for Zoe Trent has picked up some steam due to her resemblance to [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Twilight Sparkle]].
** Also "Appleblythe", seeing as a large portion of the episode "Terriers and Tiaras" involves Blythe sounding exactly like [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Applejack]].
** Roger, who looks vaguely similar to Mitt Romney, is "[[AffectionateNickname Mittens]]".
* HeyItsThatGuy: Yup! This series is developed by both Timothy Cahill and Julie [=McNally=] Cahill, creators of ''WesternAnimation/MyGymPartnersAMonkey''. There is a reason why the series is considered to be on par with the other [[Creator/TheHub Hub]]-originated [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Hasbro tie-in]].
** Let's not forget DanielIngram, folks. Even the opening theme screams genius, despite being a [[RearrangeTheSong Rearrangement]].
** M. A. Larson and Cindy Morrow were both writers to some episodes of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. So there's some GenreSavvy into the mix.
*** As well as (relative) newcomer Corey Powell, who started in [=MLP=]'s 3rd season.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Yes, like ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' and a few animes, VoiceboxProductions did an awesome job on hiring a lot of good voice actors to the series. To name a few:
** Roger Baxter is voiced by MichaelKopsa. [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Aeolia Schenberg]] of Mobile Suit Gundam00 is a bad driver.
** KyleRideout became Vinnie Terrio. [[LightNovel/SaiunkokuMonogatari Kokajun Sa]] of Saiukoku Monogatari recently became the new Music/MichaelJackson.
** JocelynLoewen is Penny Ling. [[Anime/GalaxyAngel Milfeulle Sakuraba]] of Galaxy Angel is now a panda.
** KiraTozer is both Minka Mark and Sue Patterson. [[Manga/InuYasha Kagome]] of InuYasha just recently became a monkey.
** The series also shares several voice actors from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' (Creator/TheHub has even [[https://twitter.com/HubTVNetwork/status/259086327738413056 pointed]] [[https://twitter.com/HubTVNetwork/status/263415663585021952 out]] a couple):
*** Blythe Baxter is voiced by [[Music/HeyOcean Ashleigh Ball]], who also voices Rainbow Dash and Applejack. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvq2alO4oxc One Hub promo]] points out the similarity between Blythe and Rainbow's voices.
*** Creator/NicoleOliver (Princess Celestia, Cheerilee) voices Zoe Trent.
*** Creator/TabithaStGermain, who voices several characters including Rarity, Photo Finish, Nightmare Moon, and Princess Luna, is Pepper Clark and Gail Trent.
*** Big [=McIntosh=]'s VA, PeterNew, is Sunil Nevla.
*** Creator/KathleenBarr, the voice of Trixie and Queen Chrysalis, plays Mrs. Twombly, the owner of the Littlest Pet Shop, Jasper Jones, Blythe's classmate and a JerkJock named Vi. [[PlayingAgainstType Who'd knew Trixie's grandmother would be so kind?]]
*** Creator/SamuelVincent, who voices Flim, is Russell Ferguson. It's not [[WesternAnimation/SonicUnderground the first time he's played a cartoon hedgehog,]] either. He also voiced Sonic in Sonic Underground.
*** Creator/ShannonChanKent, who provides Pinkie Pie's singing voice as well as Silver Spoon's voice, plays Whitney and Britney Biskit, and also to Youngmee Song.
*** Creator/CathyWeseluck, the voice actor for Spike and Mayor Mare, plays the hyperactive Buttercream Sunday.
*** And, Sugar Sprinkles is voiced by Kelly Metzger, who also voices the Wonderbolt captain Spitfire.
** In the Italian dub, Roger and Ms. Twombly have the same voices as [[Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers Tommy Oliver and Rita Repulsa]]. Once you notice it, you cannot laugh.
*** Sunil is, like in Brazil, [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Kakashi Hatake]].
*** Also, Russell is, like in Hungary, [[WesternAnimation/JakersTheAdventuresOfPiggleyWinks Piggley Winks]].
*** Vinnie Terrio is [[Disney/{{Frozen}} Kristoff]].
* MythologyGag: Blythe and other characters have big eyes and heads because that's how [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blythe_%28doll%29 the original Blythe dolls]] looked.
* NamesTheSame: Russell Ferguson shares his name with a Krump dancer who won ''SoYouThinkYouCanDance'' season 6. May or may not be an inversion[[note]]That is, the former may or may not have been deliberately named after the latter.[[/note]]
** Lampshaded with The Igors and Karinas in that [[ShowWithinAShow Shake-A-Leg]].
** It is most likely coincidential, but Josh Sharp's name is almost identical to that of Josh Sharpe, a high-ranking [[http://papa.org/the-tournaments/circuit-2013-14/standings/ competitive pinball player]] and son of Creator/RogerSharpe.
* NonSingingVoice: Zoe and Penny.
* PromotedFanboy: MLP fan musician [=MandoPony=] [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2013/03/mandopony-invades-littlest-pet-shop.html contributed a song]] to an episode.
* RelationshipVoiceActor: Nicole Oliver and Tabitha St. Germain voice sisters Zoe Trent and Gail Trent after previously voicing sisters Celestia and Luna in ''My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic''.[[note]]This may have even been [[ActorAllusion done on purpose]].[[/note]]
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Except for Sunil, most of the pets originally had different names. Zoe was [[Music/LadyGaga Lady Ra Ra]], Penny was Lolly, Pepper was Jasmine, Minka was Margo, Russell was Winston and Vinnie was Tony.
* TheWikiRule: [[http://lps2012.wikia.com Littlest Pet Shop (2012 TV series) Wiki]]
* WorkingTitle: ''Blythe Loves the Littlest Pet Shop''.
* WriterRevolt: "Topped With Buttercream" sure comes off this way. It's undoubtedly meant to promote the candy-themed LPS toys (which seem to be half the toyline), but it's not flattering to the concept at all. Characters mention off-hand the detrimental effects of a diet rich in sugar. The pets get high on sugar and turn into twitchy, paranoid, delusional savages. Buttercream seems to have been permanently damaged by sugar to the point where she has multiple verbal and physical tics. By the end of the episode, the pets ''run in fear'' from sugary snacks (although they get over it in future episodes).
