The latest AnimatedShow in the ''Franchise/LittlestPetShop'' franchise, which premiered on Creator/TheHub on November 10, 2012.

Developed by ''[[WesternAnimation/MyGymPartnersAMonkey My Gym Partner's a Monkey]]'''s creators Timothy Cahill and Julie [=McNally=] Cahill, the series follows Blythe Baxter and her father as they move into a Big City apartment above the Littlest Pet Shop - a day-camp for pets of all kinds. Her adventures begin when she discovers that she alone can miraculously understand and talk to all of the pets. Learning that the pet shop is about to close down because of the Largest Ever Pet Shop, which is run by the Biskitt family, Blythe agrees to help save the pet shop. After this initial setup, the series focuses on Blythe and the pets' wacky adventures.

In America, Creator/ShoutFactory has released several first season episodes on DVD. The entire first and second seasons are also available for streaming on Netflix.

Not to be confused with ''WesternAnimation/LittlestPetShop1995'' or ''WebAnimation/LittlestPetShopPresents'', which have their own entries.

The series has been [[http://www.rogereschbacher.com/2013/10/littlest-pet-shop-back-in-one-month.html renewed]] for a third season.

A [[Recap/LittlestPetShop2012 recap page]] is now up.

* ArtisticLicenseAnimalCare: In "Topped with Buttercream", the pets are shown eating candy and suffering no ill effects apart from a stomach ache and a bad sugar high. In real life, candy would be poisonous to most of them.
** Yet again when Blythe shares her cake with them in "Bakers and Fakers" especially Zoe which the cake may or may not have chocolate in it.

* BalloonBelly: In "Topped with Buttercream", Russell, Sunil and Penny get some.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: In the first minute of episode 1, Blythe makes a comment to a puppy and squirrel that she wishes she knew what they were saying, only to have a minor freakout when she finally gets to Littlest Pet Shop for the first time.
** At the start of "Secret Cupet", Russell and Penny Ling pretend to be boyfriend and girlfriend to catch a mysterious being that causes pets to fall in love with each-other. Penny is all too willing to go through with this and adores the (fake) attention and compliments. Though... when [[spoiler: Russell falls under the Cupet's spell and ends up acting like Pepi Le Pew on crack, she is terrified and wants nothing more than to get away from him]]
* BeleagueredAssistant: Philippa to Judi Jo in "Terriers & Tiaras".
* BitchInSheepsClothing: [[spoiler: Tangier.]] Despite his seeming friendly disposition, [[spoiler: he savagely sabotages Russell's photoshoots. Either he is so obsessed with his image, he will do anything he can to destroy the careers of any male models that he works with, whether professional or newbie, to avoid any future competition... or he just personally hates Russell for some reason.]]
* BilingualBonus: Blythe meets a ferret who only speaks in Korean.

* BondGunBarrel: In "Books and Covers", this is used to transition to the [[AffectionateParody spy]] FantasySequence.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Concerning Minka's fantasy sequence in "Bad Hair Day."
** Also Delilah's interpretation of the song fantasies.
---> Delilah: I suppose this is the part where we enter an alternate reality and I lay it out for you lot by a sanguine musical vocalization and rhythmic capering about isn't it?
---> Russell: Does this mean we're going to do a musical fantasy?
---> Delilah: Yeah, like whatever.
*** In the following song, Delilah at one point stops singing and looks towards the viewers.
---> Russell: What is she looking at?
---> Sunil: I don't know but it looks interesting.
* BrickJoke: At the beginning of "Mean Isn't Your Color", Mrs. Twombly brings home a garish dress. At the end of the episode it's implied that she decided to give Blythe said dress since she was so busy making the pets and Roger's outfits that she didn't have time to make her own. Blythe is less than enthusiastic.
** The hair on the counter in "Eve of Destruction".
** At the start of "Littlest Bigfoot" the pets plan to dig a hole to trap Bigfoot, and Blythe jokes that her father if he sees Bigfoot will probably fall into the trap himself. Guess what happens at the very end of the episode.
* BuffySpeak:
-->'''Blythe:''' You saw something that looked like a spaceship hovering on top of a building, right?
-->'''Sunil:''' Yes, you are correct.
-->'''Blythe:''' And where was this building?
-->'''Vinnie:''' In the middle of Downtown City, on the way back from the veter-na-narian lady person.
* TheBusCameBack: Madison in "War of the Weirds".
* CaffeineBulletTime: Vinnie in "Topped With Buttercream".
* TheCameo: [[spoiler: Tootsie and Tiger reappear for a few seconds in "Secret Cupet".]]
* CarnivoreConfusion: All animals in the world are apparently sapient, but the pets don't seem to have a problem with eating meat products.
** In "What Did You Say?", Vinnie befriends a fly that he had been trying to eat.
* CatchPhrase: Blythe's "What the huh?"
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Anyone that isn't Blythe or the Biskits[[note]]species notwithstanding[[/note]] Though the more notable ones are Mrs. Twombly, Buttercream and Sugar Sprinkles.
* ChainsawGood: One of the things "Fun Russell" throws Pepper to juggle is a chainsaw.
* ChekhovsGun: Blythe's headphones in "Gailbreak!" and her emergency comb in "Dumb Dumbwaiter".
** While Blythe is acting as Mona Autumn's assistant, Mona requests lunch, and specifically tells Blythe to hold the Asparagus. Later on Blythe gives her her lunch, only for it to turn out that later on, [[spoiler: Mona gets a severe allergic reaction because the (Swamped) Blythe forgot to hold the Asparagus. Starting an OhCrap moment as Mona was just about see a very very important client.]]
* [[ChekhovsGunman Chekhov's Gunwoman]]: In the first episode, a woman named Christie visits the then-closing Littlest Pet Shop in search of possible locations for a sweet shop. In "Topped with Buttercream", it turns out she's Youngmee Song's aunt and she ultimately opens the sweet shop next door to the Littlest Pet Shop.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint:
** In "Summertime Blues" after Mrs. Twombly gives her crazy plan to keep Blythe from leaving by framing her and having her put under house arrest.
-->'''Mr. Baxter:''' I don't think we can do that, Mrs. T...
-->'''Mrs. Twombly:''' Oh, you're right. She'll have to get out to work at the pet shop.
** In "So Interesting":
-->'''Russell:''' That was a great story, I couldn't have thought of a better one myself.
-->'''Sunil:''' I concur.
-->'''Vinnie:''' I don't, but I do agree.
* ComplexityAddiction: Russell's plans in "Gailbreak!".
* ContinuityNod: In "Topped with Buttercream", Pepper's face paint includes orange eye shadow.
** "Terriers and Tiaras" shows that Blythe is still ''very'' camera shy (At first).
** In "Sweet (truck) ride" the pets take turns licking Sugar Sprinkle's candy coated fur, which Vinnie spits out a pink hairball. Later in "Blythe's Pet Project" Shivers takes interest in a "Pink Cat Hairball" while he and Blythe are digging through the dumpster.
** In "Blythe's Big Idea" during the Pet Jet fantasy, almost every single animal to appear in the show (At least every day camper) makes a cameo.
** In "To Paris With Zoe" as the pets are flipping through the TV channels, it shows every single ShowWithinAShow in the entire series so far.
** In "Gailbreak", "Topped with Buttercream", and "What did you say", Sunil is shown dancing "The Robot"
* {{Corpsing}}: InUniverse in "Sweet (Truck) Ride." The pets are trying to film a re-enactment of how they accidentally got the truck going and not Blythe, but Zoe and Pepper get a bad case of the giggles when trying to film their part of the incident.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Subverted. The Largest Ever Pet Shop may have all the warmth and comfort of a Home Depot located in the Ninth Circle of Hell, but Fisher Biskit is actually honest, polite, and strongly believes in the value of hard work, trying and failing to instil the same values in his daughters.
** Played straight in "Heart of Parkness" In which Fisher acquires a very rare, very expensive snake for a special customer. Yet the show heavily implies the snake is illegal and maybe even endangered. He very likely bought it off of the black market.
** Played straight again in "Littlest Bigfoot" in which Fisher tries to tear up a large chunk of the forest to make pet shampoo (One tree = one drop of shampoo) like a villain straight out of ''WesternAnimation/CaptainPlanetAndThePlaneteers''.
*** He seems to be getting even worse in season three.
* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: Occurs often. See also PoorCommunicationKills.
* CoversAlwaysLie: Some ads on the Hub's Facebook page made it look like the episode, "To Paris with Zoe" was going to be all about the pets going to Paris, but Zoe is the only pet who actually goes to Paris while the rest stay at the shop.
** Subverted with "The Hedgehog in the plastic bubble" before the episode aired, the synopsis for the episode on wikipedia said, "Russell and Blythe find themselves in a (partially imagined) state of solitude" which could easily lead one to assume that Russell and Blythe spend some time alone away from the other pets, and bond. (Similar to "Eight Arms to hold you") the reason this doesn't really count, is that it all depends on the point of view of whoever is reading the info.
* CrazyPrepared: Roger has in his car facial tissue, cotton balls, and Blythe's favorite brushes in case the latter needed/forgot them.
** Also the Biskits have a armoire filled with hundreds of fresh new laptops in case they ever need it. Which is often since they throw out their laptop if they even click on a website they don't happen to like.
* {{Crossover}}: Creator/TheHub's promos sometimes put multiple Hub shows together, in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eX3dib5DAWQ this]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvq2alO4oxc case]] with ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''.
** Blythe herself was originally a real-world doll unrelated to LPS. In 2010, Creator/{{Hasbro}} started the ''Blythe Loves the Littlest Pet Shop'' toyline to market her to children, which led to this show ([[WhatCouldHaveBeen which was originally going to have the same name]]).
* CryCute: Blythe in "Helicopter Dad" after yelling at her dad to leave her alone and realizing she misses his company.
* CyberCyclops: Monban the robot, used as security in "Gailbreak!".
** He appears again in "Super Sunil" as the Biskets' Chauffeur.
** Then again in "Sleeper" as a paper shredder/analysis machine.
** And again in "Hamster Hoods".
* DancePartyEnding: "Gailbreak!".
* DarkIsNotEvil: In "What Did You Say?", Vinnie gets lost in the city dump and meets a rat named Pete. He's got an evil looking mustache, an eye patch, [[note]] though it shows for a second that he has an eye under it, so it seems to just be for RuleOfCool [[/note]] and a large gold chain. And instead of wanting to harm Vinnie, he's actually very nice and friendly and helps Vinnie find his way home.
* DelayedReaction: In "Sweet (Truck) Ride" when Vinny accidentally steps on Sugar Sprinkles' tail, she holds back her scream of pain until after she asks him not to be offended when it happens.
* DependingOnTheWriter: Blythe's and the Biskits' relationship varies from begrudging respect, to indifference, to mutual dislike.
** Fisher Biskit is an UnclePennybags most of the time, but can be a CorruptCorporateExecutive if the plot calls for it.
* DidIJustSayThatOutLoud: Penny Ling says this word for word in "The Pet Expo" while the other pets are glaring at her because she made a remark that her pillow is as soft as Sunil's belly.
* TheDitz: Madison. Taken UpToEleven in the season two premiere.
* DoItYourselfThemeTune: The theme song is sung by Ashleigh Ball.
* DramaQueen: Zoe, full stop.
* DudeLooksLikeALady: [[spoiler: That dog that the cast rescue in "Gailbreak!"? Let's just say that "she's" not Gail.]]
** Also, [[spoiler: Princess Stori.]]
* EarlyBirdCameo: Mary Frances and Olive Shellstein briefly appear among the crowd of pets and owners in the closing scene of "Blythe's Big Adventure, Part 2."
** Youngme Song's Aunt Christie has a little appearance towards the end of the first episode, 15 episodes before her first major appearance.
* ElevatorFailure: Episode 9 revolves around Blythe, Zoe, Pepper, and Minka stuck in the dumbwaiter.
** And again in "The Secret Treasure of Henrietta Twombly" the pets enter the Dumbwaiter and try to make it rise, [[spoiler: but halfway up they realize they aren't strong enough and the whole thing crashes to the bottom and even further by smashing through the floor into a subterranean cave. Though luckily, this worked out for them, since it led them straight to the treasure they were looking for.]]
* EpicFail: In "Pawlm Reading" the phony pet psychic's analyses of the pets are not only incorrect, but also the exact opposite of what they're really like.
* [[EveryCarIsAPinto Every Children's Tricycle is a Pinto]]: As demonstrated in the climax of "Sweet (Truck) Ride".
* EvilLaugh: Blythe does this in "Penny For Your Laughs" at the end of the first musical number.
** The Biskits throughout most of The Expo Factor, and [[spoiler: Their pet chinchillas in Two Pets For Two Pests]]
----> [[spoiler: Blythe (Pretending to be angry): Are your pets... laughing at me?]]
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Throughout the entire series, there has been a German Shepherd as a background character. [[note]] not to be confused with the Canine Cop in Super Sunil who was also a German Shepherd [[/note]] in The Expo Factor, he is finally given a voice, and he's German.
* FaceHeelTurn: Blythe temporarily in "Penny For Your Laughs".
* FailedASpotCheck: Youngmee and Aunt Christie seem to be completely unaware there's a cat living in the back of their truck.
** In season two, Sugar Sprinkles is seen buckled into a car seat next to Russell, which would seem to indicate she IS Christie's pet after all.
* FanDisservice: [[spoiler: Fun Russell's CarpetOfVirility]].
* FanService: [[spoiler: Albeit brainwashing leading to StatusQuoIsGod, it doesn't seem like a coincidence that Sunil falls in love with Pepper]]
* FantasticRacism: In Penny Ling's story in "So Interesting" when the watering stone was stolen, they immediately accuse the goblins, since goblins are well, goblins... it turns out the Goblins are very friendly and do not steal.
* FiveManBand: This varies depending on the episode.
** TheLeader - Zoe is technically the leader of the pets, but there were times when Russell showed some signs of leadership.
** TheLancer - Vinnie and Pepper tag team this.
** TheSmartGuy - Russell most of the time, but occasionally Sunil.
** TheBigGuy - Penny Ling comes the closest since she's often treated as the muscle of the team.
** TheChick - Most of the time it's Sunil, sometimes Penny Ling, and occasionally Minka.
** TeamMom - Blythe
* {{Flanderization}}: Blythe's dad. He was always the stereotypical bumbling/clueless parent, but in ''Helicopter Dad'', he becomes the stereotypical "embarrassing" parent as well.
** Buttercream seems to get less coherent with each new episode.
** When the show started, Fisher Biskit was simply a stern businessman, nothing more. Further and further into the show, he becomes more shady and corrupt such as selling an illegal water cobra, selling cheap water bottles that explode when trying to open, and intention to decimate a public forest for profit.
*** As of the season three premiere, Fisher seems to have taken a level in dumbass, as he can't understand why LPS has become more popular than his store, sends his idiot daughters to spy on LPS, and then uses their "intel" to make an incredibly moronic business decision. If this keeps up, he'll be an older, male version of the twins in no time.
* FollowTheLeader: It's pretty clear this show is trying to follow in the footsteps of a certain other [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Hasbro reboot]], and even shares some of the same cast and writers and airs alongside it.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble (actually, 8)
** Zoe Trent and Pepper Clark are Choleric
** Russell Fergusson and Sunil Nevla are Melancholic
** Penny Ling and Blythe Baxter are Phlegmatic
** Minka Mark And Vinnie Terrio are Sanguine
* FreudianSlip: In "Blythe's Crush", Blythe keeps slipping in the word "cute" when describing how she bumped into Josh.
* FullNameBasis: The panda bear is more often than not referred to as "Penny Ling", and rarely ever just "Penny".
* FunnyBackgroundEvent: In "Topped With Buttercream". During the "Sweet Shop" song, Buttercream sings atop of a candy covered table surrounded by the other pets. During this time, Penny Ling takes a bite of the table. Later, Minka and Penny Ling jump on plates of jello. Minka bounces, but Penny Ling gets stuck.
** Also, Youngmee eating all her aunt's ice cream while the latter was trying to find the key to the sweetshop.
** In "Secret Cupet" Russell and Penny Ling in ridiculous outfits, are awkwardly pretending to be a romantic couple to lure out the Secret Cupet. Cue Blythe looking at them in the background with probably the best "What the hell...?" face in the entire show.
* FunWithAcronyms: Literally. The fashion school Blythe hopes to attend is called "Fashion University North", or "F.U.N." for short.
* GenderReveal: Tootsie, Mary Frances, Princess Stori. The writers seem to like this one.
** Seems to be a TakeThat at pet owners who never bother to figure out what gender their pet is.
** Many viewers were led to assume "Sweet Cheeks" was a girl for most of the episode.
* GenreSavvy: Pokes fun at the original franchise while avoiding being a total parody of it much like ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' preceding it.
* TheGhost: Played with for one episode. Despite the B-Plot of "War of the Weirds" relied almost entirely on Fisher Bisket, we never actually see the character physically.
* GlassShatteringSound: A RunningGag in "Summertime Blues" whenever anyone squeals excitedly.
* GreatDetective: Russell's alter-ego is a SherlockHomage known as Cyril [=McFlip=].
* GrossUpCloseUp: Shahrukh's feet in "Lights, Camera, Mongoose!".
* GrowlingGut: Russell, Vinnie and Zoe are so far the only pets who are prone to this trope. It also happens to Blythe in one episode during a daydream she has.
* HeIsNotMyBoyfriend: Blythe, about Josh, a skater dude.
** Averted in "Secret Cupet", which she confides to Youngmee that she likes him but is too awkward to talk to him.
* HeroicBSOD: Minka gets hit with one in "Bad Hair Day" when she's pressured by the rest of the pets to create art that will propel them all to fame and fortune.
* HighPressureBlood: In "Bakers and Fakers", because the Biskit Twins' poorly-made cake of themselves is filled to the brim with red borscht berry filling, this trope ensues when the cakes' "heads" slide off.
* HilariousOuttakes: Parodied in "Sweet (Truck) Ride" when the pets are trying to record a re-enactment of the accident.
* HippyTeacher: Blythe comes in late for class and gives not being "mentally ready" as an excuse. Mr. Banks responds by making the entire class take a "mental break".
* HollywoodNatives: The raccoons in "Heart of Parkness" are modeled after this trope.
* HugeSchoolgirl: Vi Tannabruzzo, who is [[OneHeadTaller One Freakishly Large Head Taller]] than Blythe.
* HumanLadder: The pets have done this a couple times in the series, but it has yet to become a standard technique of theirs.
** Alluded to in "What Meme Worry?" after Sunil's meme getting a million likes, Vinnie asks how much a million is. Russell says that if a million mongooses stood on each-others shoulders they'd be really really high up. Vinnie then says "Sounds really heavy for the Moogoose on the bottom" which Sunil admits that's what he feels like.
* HypnoticEyes: Sunil has these. He uses them in "Gailbreak!"
* HypocriticalHumor: Vinnie claims not to be a fan of Shahrukh, the famous Bollywood mongoose. When he walks out of his trailer, Vinnie [[{{Squee}} fangirls out]].
* ICantBelieveItsNotHeroin: In "Topped With Buttercream", the pets get high on too much sugar. This is way [[ExaggeratedTrope exaggerated]] with the pets actually showing some symptoms of drug use, like extremely small irises, jitteriness, disorientation, eye twitching, trembling, nausea, strange and aggressive behaviour and hallucinations (though this is partially TruthInTelevision if you introduce sugar to people who never had it before). Penny Ling even had a straight-on MushroomSamba. It ends in them dressing in tribal sugar-themed outfits and behaving more or less insane.
* IdenticalStranger: Sunil and Shahrukh which leads to a PrinceAndPauper story.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Shahrukh claims he just wants to be treated like a normal person... then makes the pets wait on him hand and foot.
* IllGirl: Blythe in "What Did You Say?".
** Averted in "The Hedgehog in the Plastic Bubble" in which Blythe assumed she had a fatal disease called Jerry Berry.
* ImagineSpot: Most of the times when a song by the pets happens, or the pets happen to parody something else from pop culture, a more fantastical sequence illustrates the scene.
* INeedToGoIronMyDog: In "Blythe's Big Day", Blythe tries to get out of talking with the Biskit sisters by telling them "I... have to go do anything else."
* InOneEarOutTheOther: In "What Did You Say?" at one point Blythe cleans out her ears this way.
* InsaneTrollLogic: In "Bakers and Fakers" when Whittany and Brittany learn the winners will earn half a grade, they come to the conclusion that since there's two of them that's one whole grade ''for both of them''.
** The Biskits ''AGAIN'' in "The Nest Hats Craze!", while holding Blythe against her will.
---> "Like, if you didn't want to be tied up and held against you will, you like, never would've become a celebrity."
* InstantAwesomeJustAddMecha: The episode "Gailbreak!" reveals that the Largest Ever Pet Shop has a [[MechaMooks high-tech security robot.]]
** He appears again in "Super Sunil" as the Biskets' Chauffeur.
* InterspeciesRomance: In "Sweet Pepper" Pepper (a skunk) falls in love with Captain Cuddles (a weasel).
** In "The Expo Factor" Sunil (a mongoose) had a crush on Delilah (a cat).
** In "Sleeper" Penny Ling (a Panda) develops a crush on Otto Von Fuzzlebutt (A raccoon) [[note]] though maybe a little justified since Pandas and Raccoons are said to be distant relatives [[/note]]
** In "Secret Cupet" Baa Baa Lou (A Goat) falling in love with an unnamed female Pig.
*** [[spoiler: Russell (A Hedgehog)]] falling in love with [[spoiler: Penny Ling (A Panda)]], [[spoiler: Vinnie (A Gecko)]] falling in love with [[spoiler: Minka (A Monkey)]] and [[spoiler: Sunil (A Mongoose)]] falling in love with [[spoiler: Pepper (a Skunk)]]
* IntoxicationEnsues: When the pets go on a sugar binge in "Topped With Buttercream". Penny in particular starts hallucinating.
* InvisibleParents: Owners, anyway. Part of the premise is that the store is a day camp for the pets that their owners leave them at. Throughout season one, Zoe's owners are the only ones who make a physical appearance.
** Though not stated directly, in "So Interesting" Pepper said she was on the bus with her owner. She was standing right by the feet of a dapper looking man with a mustache, so chances are high he may be her owner.
* IronicName: One of the Biskit twins is named '''Whit'''tany and has '''black''' hair, while the other is named '''B'''rittany and has '''white''' hair.
* ItsAllMyFault: In "Summertime Blues", Pepper and Russell wonder if it's their fault Blythe is leaving.
** In "Penny for your laughs" during the "I'm sorry" song, Pepper blames herself for every single bad thing that happens to Penny. Despite they were all accidents. Though justified that this scenario was likely a daydream created by her deep guilt.
* JabbaTableManners: Subverted, Otto Von Fuzzlebutt eats like a complete slob, but he is (despite his two minutes of being awake) shown to be a very nice guy.
* {{Kaiju}}: The ColdOpen FantasySequence in "So You Skink You Can Dance" is an AffectionateParody of this.
* KitschCollection: Mrs. Twombly and her antique doorknob collection.
* LadiesAndGerms: "Ladies and gentlemen...''hipsters''..."
* LevelAte: Penny's sugar-induced fantasy.
* LighterAndSofter: Most of the plot in certain episodes are surprisingly not too serious nor dark.
* LimitedWardrobe: {{Averted|Trope}} with Blythe, played straight with everyone else.
* [[TheLittleShopThatWasntThereYesterday The Littlest (Pet) Shop That Wasn't There Yesterday]]: The pilot kind of plays up this angle, with Roger remarking that he didn't notice it before, and then a shot of Mrs. Twombly peeking out of the blinds while tense music plays. The shop turned out to be pretty mundane, save for the animal communication abilities it apparently gave Blythe. It's then parodied when Blythe hears the air conditioner and thinks the shop is purring.
** Though subverted in the second episode where Jasper says he "Loves that store" meaning it's been there for some time.
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: In the first episode we meet Blythe (1) her dad (2) seven pets (9) the store owner (10) the Biskit twins (12) three school friends (15!) and several others who may or may not be reoccurring characters. For a show aimed at younger viewers, this is... somewhat ambitious to say the least.
* LotsOfLuggage: Blythe packs a mountain of luggage for an all-summer fashion camp, although some of this is supplies she'll need for drawing and designing.
* MadeOfExplodium: In episode 3 when Blythe makes Zoe a sweater out of her fur it promptly bursts.
* MagicRealism: Apart from Blythe's ability to talk to animals and the occasional cartoony gag, the show is pretty down to earth.
* MartialArtsAndCrafts: Mrs. Twombly had used (and popularized) the use of kung-fu for quilting.
* MerchandiseDriven
* MindControlEyes: In "Gailbreak!", Sunil hypnotizes the Biskit Twins; after this, their eyes contain the same concentric circles as his.
* MindScrew: In "Bad Hair Day" Minka is having a fantasy that she is making art by splashing paint around, which some splashes on Blythe. Blythe immediately ends the fantasy yet is still covered with the paint.
* MissingMom: Blythe's mother is never mentioned or seen even when she and her dad are moving.
** And "Mean Isn't Your Color" confirms that Roger is single.
** Also, the Biskit Twins' mother is never shown, and the only relative we see of Youngmee is her aunt. Seriously, does anyone have a mother on this show?
* MistakenForSpecialGuest: The plot for episode 12 involves Blythe being mistaken for a dance show contestant.
** And in episode 13 Sunil is mistaken for a movie star.
* MisunderstoodLonerWithAHeartOfGold: The rats in "What Did You Say?". At first they appear to be antagonists, but then the leader agrees to help Vinnie get back home and even goes out of his way to rescue Vinnie when he's captured by the episode's true antagonist.
* MultiPartEpisode: The series premiere "Blythe's Big Adventure Part One" and "Blythe's Big Adventure Part Two".
** The Season 2 finale is a 2-parter as well.
* MundaneMadeAwesome: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SvwVben4JI0 The Lost and Found Box!]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Pepper has this response after Penny's OcularGushers moment below.
* MyLittlePhony: Episode 25 has a "My Small Squirrel" reference. This is an ActorAllusion to Ashleigh Ball.
* MySignificanceSenseIsTingling: In "Door-Jammed" Brittany senses a disturbance when Whittany starts getting along with Blythe.
* NeverHeardThatOneBefore: The response to Pepper's joke about a dog's slobber.
* NeverTrustATrailer: See CoversAlwaysLie.
* NiceCharacterMeanActor: Old Bananas.[[spoiler:.. Subverts this. It's a JerkassFacade to prepare Pepper for the ''actual'' {{Jerkass}}es she'll meet in showbusiness.]]
* NonIndicativeName: Normally a pet shop sells pets as well as pet supplies.
-->''Littlest Pet Shop: We don't sell pets, we cater to them.''
* OcularGushers: Penny Ling after one joke from Pepper too far.
* OfCorpseHesAlive: Subverted in "Sleeper" as the trope is used completely straight except for the fact (being a kid's show) there is no death; the character is just hibernating.
* OffscreenTeleportation: The Biskit twins have a penchant for teleporting in front of Blythe. Also used constantly with Were-Russell in the Wolf-i-fied song.
* OhNoNotAgain: Sunil Nevla says "Not again..." after a failed magic trick blows up in his face and makes his magician hat disintegrate.
** Blythe says it in "Blythe's Crush" when the person she's trying to return his keys to leaves.
* OneBookAuthor: The singing voices for Penny and Zoe (Laura Hastings and Kylee Epp, respectively) have no other TV credits.
* OneOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: Probably unintentional, but Vinnie is the only non-mammalian pet among the main cast of seven pets.
** Russell seems to be playing the OnlySaneMan to the eccentric tendencies of the other pets.[[note]]Except, he's ultimately [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} just as "eccentric" as the others]][[/note]] He's also the only pet who's not an artist/entertainer.
* OneSteveLimit: Averted thrice thus far:
** In "So You Skink You Can Dance", all the male dancers of ''Shake-A-Leg'' are named Igor and all the females are named Karina (though they all have different last names, of course).
** Morgan Payne in "Bad Hair Day" and Morgan [[spoiler:the man who plays Bruce the Legal Iguana]] in "The Big, Feathered Parade".
** Fred, Old Bananas' owner in "Lotsa Luck" and Fred the museum mummy mascot actor in "A Day at the Museum".
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Character]]: Blythe is the only main, principal character (gender and species notwithstanding) who isn't a {{Cloudcuckoolander}}, or a "queen bee".
* OpenTheIris: Many of the characters, especially Penny Ling.
* OutOfFocus: Zoe, Russell, Sunil, Vinnie, and Buttercream are the only pets featured in "What's in the Batter?", and Sunil is nowhere to be seen when the pets go to help Blythe.
** Only Blythe, Zoe, Minka, and Russell have major roles in "Terriers and Tiaras". Pepper and Sunil are reduced to non-speaking cameos in the ColdOpen, while Penny and Vinnie do not appear at all.
** Jasper Jones is an afterthought throughout pretty much the entire first season. Sue to a lesser extent, but still very much out of focus in comparison to Youngmee.
*** Just recently Jasper was a major part of an episode. (In which Youngmee barely had any lines at all and Sue was absent completely) This seems to foreshadow we'll see more of him from here on.
* OverlyNarrowSuperlative: In Russell's school fantasy, he get a trophy labeled, "Best Student Hedgehog Ever".
* PaperThinDisguise: In "Bakers and Fakers" the Biskit twins wear trench coats, hats, and mustaches in an attempt to appear as Newspaperist... er Journalist, in order to figure out what the gang is doing to make their cake. The gang is completely aware of who they are but still humor them.
* ParentalNeglect: In "Helicopter Dad", the Biskit twins notice Blythe's dad is at the school, and we get this dialogue:
--> '''Brittany''': Whittany, look who brought her own, like-- wait, what's that person called, who, like, takes care of you?
--> '''Whittany''': Like, a care-type person?
--> '''Brittany''': That's it! Ugh, look who brought her own, like, ''care-type'' person with her today.
--> '''Whittany''': Seriously.
** Makes us wonder how their relationship with ''their'' "care-type person" is like...
*** From what we see later, [[SubvertedTrope the problem is that he takes an active interest]] in their growth and expects them to work hard and get ahead honestly, when they'd actually ''prefer'' a neglectful Dad who just throws money at them and spoils them in lieu of genuine love and support.
*** "Grounded" shows another side. Rodger while spending time with them was acting like a loving father figure would, giving them attention and playing games with them. Something they had never experienced before then, and they felt "real happiness" for the first time because of that.
* PastimesProvePersonality: Blythe and the pets each have one.
** Blythe: Designing
** Minka: Painting
** Penny Ling: Ribbon dancing
** Pepper: Comedy
** Russell: Organizing
** Sunil: Magic tricks
** Vinnie: Dancing
** Zoe: Singing
*** Averted with Russell as he seems to be gradually heading into a pet modeling career (with no choice in the matter) though he's easing into it, and even admitted it's starting to become fun, he doesn't seem to care regardless if he does it or not.
* PerformanceAnxiety: Blythe when she has to dance on [[ShowWithinAShow a TV show]].
** In "Terriers & Tiaras" when she is first interviewed she's rendered catatonic with camera shyness and can't say anything other than her name.
** Also Russell when he is chosen by the draw to be Blythe's model for the Expo, in The Expo Factor. He is terrified.
* PetTheDog: Fisher Biskit provides an instance in the climax of "Grounded" by [[spoiler:encouraging Roger to hurry home to Blythe]].
* PieInTheFace: Penny throws a pistachio pudding pie into Pepper's face after the latter apologizes.
* PlaceWorseThanDeath: The Largest Ever Pet Shop is describe as this in episode 1. When we actually see the inside of the store in episode 4 it turns out said description might have exaggerated a bit.
* PlayingCyrano: In "Trading Places", Zoe (Who has a large blemish on her nose) asks Penny to talk to her crush Digby for her.
* PokeThePoodle: Fun Russell's zany antics include: switching the positions of two pet beds, not flossing his teeth, and not separating his laundry.
* PoorCommunicationKills: Blythe drew the design for her dad's outfit in "Mean Isn't Your Color". Problem? Well, the head on that paper is Penny Ling's. Needless to say this resulted in a CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot.
* PredatoryBusiness: Largest Ever Pet Shop.
* PseudoCrisis: In "Dumb Dumbwaiter" Mrs. Twombly locks Penny, Russell, Sunil and Vinnie in a cage, inadvertently hindering their efforts to save their other friends from the dumbwaiter. After the break, Penny just undoes the latch with her paw.
** Though the show may have been parodying this trope. (Like they parody everything else)
* PuppyDogEyes: The pets somehow manage this on Blythe near the end of "Blythe's Big Adventure Part One," even though ''Franchise/LittlestPetShop'' toys are known for being in perpetual PuppyDogEyes mode. Needless to say, it's ''adorable.''
** Zoe does this to Blythe in "Terriers and Tiaras", so she can be in the reality show. It almost doesn't work, until the pets used a flashlight, watering can, and violin music to make it more sad.
** Russell does this to Penny Ling when he asked her if he's too serious in "Russell Up Some Fun".
** Sunil is also very well known for this. He seems to do it at least once or twice in almost every episode he's in.
** Buttercream does this to Blythe in "Sweet Pepper".
** Taken UpToEleven in "Day at the Museum".
** Blythe falls victim to this again in "Secret Cupet".
* PutOnABus: [[spoiler: The Biskits' butler Francois]] at the end of "The Expo Factor".
** TheBusCameBack: In "Two pets for two pests" [[spoiler: he is once again/still employed by the Biskits for whatever reason. Likely because the Twins were too young, and thus had no jurisdiction on firing him, so he was technically never fired]]
* {{Ragequit}}: Mrs. Twombly in "Dumb Dumbwaiter" after the cans she's trying to stack into a pyramid collapse for the fifth time.
** Pepper, after Zoe and Russells' (Fantasy) help talk show stops being about helping pets and instead simply to fuel their egos.
* RearrangeTheSong: The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkigRFe6eNs opening theme]] uses the same tune as the ''WebAnimation/LittlestPetShopPresents'' opening theme.
* RecurringExtra: A few of the same people keep showing up in the background. You can also find them in crowd scenes, both real and imaginary.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: The Biskit twins.
* {{Retcon}}: In "Commercial Success", Littlest Pet Shop's motto was revealed to be "We don't sell pets. We cater to them." However, several times in season one, it was shown to have pets for sale, such as snakes and turtles.
* ReversePolarity: Russell claims doing so to a cash register will disable the Biskits' robot. The other pets are a bit incredulous.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: It's based on ''Littlest Pet Shop'', what do you expect?
* TheRival[=/=]SitcomArchNemesis: Madame Pom to Zoe.
** Mr. Biskit to Mrs. Twombly.
* RuleOfCute: In an ImagineSpot, Penny wanted to name Minka's art, "Minka Inka". "Because it's cuter!"
* RuleOfPerception: In the pilot, Blythe mistakes a dumbwaiter door with a window painted on it for an actual window.
* RummageFail: Youngmee's aunt, whenever she needs to get something from her purse. [[BagOfHolding Which isn't helped by her having a small kitchen's worth of tools inside.]]
** There's a subtle gag the second time she does it: the first thing she pulls out is icing pops, which were what she was looking for the first time.
* RunningGag: When someone hugs Russell one of his spines gets stuck in their face.
** "Dumb Dumbwaiter" gives us a constantly collapsing pyramid of cans.
** Once per episode with Buttercream, has her spewing insane gibberish, a character saying "what?" her saying "what" back and her ears twirl together when untwirl as she sighs, then follows up with her catchphrase: "Aaanywhooooooo..."
*** This running gag is averted for laughs in "The Treasure of Henrietta Twombly" where Pepper asks a question, Buttercream responses with "Do you mean... *says complete gibberish*" and starts to prepare position for the ear twirl. Yet instead of saying "what?" Pepper says "No" and walks away.
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections: Normally you can't fly on the Pet Jet without a pet, but Emma gets away with it because her mom is the co-pilot.
* SecretTestOfCharacter: [[spoiler:Old Bananas's supposed grouchiness and disappointment in Pepper is actually a facade meant to prepare her for the hardships of show business, as revealed when Pepper finally wins him and the pets over with her comedy.]]
** The Fashion Magazine owner, Mona Autumn, whom Blythe pitches her designs to who is extremely critical and yells at everyone for the tiniest things, she admits to Blythe that she acts that way to secretly separate the determined from the buttkissers.
*** Though regardless, despite she is now very friendly with Blythe, she is still naturally scary.
* SecurityCling: Vinnie and Sunil do this a lot in "Door-Jammed".
* SeinfeldianConversation: The B plot to "So You Skink You Can Dance" consists of the pets trying to decide where to keep the TV remote.
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: Vinnie and Sunil often have this dynamic, with Vinnie as the cool and confident manly man, and Sunil as the {{Adorkable}}, [[ShrinkingViolet not very confident]] sensitive guy.
* [[TwoMenOneDress Seven Pets, One Costume]]: It was discussed throughout "Shanghai-Jinks" that the pets were to perform the classic Chinese Dragon act in honor of Mrs. Twombly's ceremony in Shanghai. At first, they had to perform it without Penny Ling since she was off having dinner with her relatives. Things go moderately well until they got the tail of the costume caught on a nail on the floor of the stage, but fortunately, Penny Ling showed up just in time to get in the tail and save them.
* SequelEpisode: War of the Weirds seems to be one to Standup Stinker, as it's filled with callbacks and nods to the earlier episode.
* ShaggyDogStory: [[spoiler:The ending of "Gailbreak!".]] Doubles as a StealthPun.
* ShipTease: A small hint of Sunil/Pepper and Russell/Minka during the [[EarWorm third "Dance Like You Know You Can" rendition]] in ''Gailbreak''.
** In "Frenemies", Penny Ling remarks that Vinnie looks cute without his tail.
** In "The Expo Factor - Part 2", as the pets are resting on the cushions in Blythe's kiosk, Penny notes how they're soft "like Sunil's belly", reacting to the others' surprise with almost word for word DidIJustSayThatOutLoud.
** "Secret Cupet" seems to have been written for no other reason than to play around with this trope.
* ShoutOut: So many, they now have [[ShoutOut/LittlestPetShop2012 their own page]].
* SickeninglySweethearts: Ms. Amster and Mr. Barish.
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: In a comedy show with a cast that's about 80% female, this comes up a lot.
** Blythe faceplants ''hard'' when attempting the long jump. And again when attempting to skateboard.
* SmallNameBigEgo: Despite the Biskits priding themselves on being "super cool" and "super popular", they seem to be very unpopular at school (unless they're giving away free stuff), and they seem to have no actual friends. Lampshaded in "The Expo Factor Pt. 1".
--->'''Brittany:''' Don't tell anyone Whitney, but I forgot about that ippy effy thingy.
--->'''Whitney:''' Who would I tell?
** This is confirmed in "Two Pets For Two Pests" Where Brittany admits that people only like them if they're giving things away for free.
* SneezeOfDoom: Blythe sneezes and gives herself away when she is hiding behind the pets from her father in "Helicopter Dad".
** Also, in "Pawlm Reading" Sunil is on a skateboard: "I will be perfectly safe if I do not move a muscle - ah-ah-ah-CHOO" ZOOM *CRASH*
* SomethingWeForgot: At the end of "Books and Covers" Whittany forgets to get Brittany her ointment and she's still locked in the girls' room.
* SophisticatedAsHell: In "Penny for Your Laughs" Whittany and Brittany taste test some lemonade like it's wine.
* SpringtimeForHitler: Blythe attempts to get Sue to stop copying her style by wearing mismatching clothes. It fails when everyone loves them.
* {{Squee}}: In "Topped With Buttercream", Blythe and Youngmee do this when they learn they'll be working neighbors.
* StandUpComedy: Pepper takes this hobby up when she realized her pudding gags are getting old.
* StealthPun: In "What Did You Say?" during the musical number Pepper is dressed as a doctor.
** The B-plot of "Inside Job" is about bees.
* StylisticSelfParody:
** "I think that ''giant head of hers'' got the worst of it!"
** From "Lights, Camera, Mongoose!": "Hey, large-headed panda! Come back here!"
** From "Topped with Buttercream": "Curse my freakishly large head!"
** From "Helicopter Dad": "Now your pupils look huge. Well, more huge than usual."
** The cold open to "The Hedgehog in the Plastic Bubble" has Blythe struggling to put on a sweater because her head is so big.
* StylisticSuck: Whittany and Brittany's music video in "What, Meme Worry?".
* TechnicolorEyes: Even on the pets.
* ThatCameOutWrong: In "Door-Jammed" when Whittany is telling Blythe to get out of her bathroom.
-->'''Whittany:''' This is ''my'' bathroom, just like everything else in this house.
-->'''Blythe:''' Everything else in this house is your bathroom?
** Zoe pulls this in "Blythe's Pet Project, quickly decending into DiggingYourselfDeeper territory.
-->'''Zoe''': ...And I'm sorry I thought Sunil was that great a magician. Wait, that didn't sound right. I mean I don't know if he's great, but I can't say "good" with total confidence...
* TheThingThatWouldNotLeave: Shivers in "Blythe's Pet Project".
* TinyGuyHugeGirl: Vinnie is the smallest of the pets while Penny Ling is the largest, and the two are good pals and are often shipped together by fans.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Jasper in "Commercial Success"
* TotallyRadical: Blythe's use of internet acronyms comess off as this. In fairness, the adults do occasionally poke fun at it.
* TotemPoleTrench: The alien costume that Sunil, Zoe and Penny Ling wear in "Stand-Up Stinker" is basically this. Even though Zoe and Penny Ling were sticking their heads out, it was all part of the act.
* TuxedoAndMartini: The main FantasySequence in "Books and Covers" is an AffectionateParody Of this.
* TyopOnTheCover: The title of the episode ''"Eve of Destruction"'' had "Destruction" mispelled as "Destuction" [[http://lps2012.wikia.com/wiki/File:Eve_of_Destruction.jpg on-screen]].
** On the Canadian Netflix in "Trading Places" the subtitles misspell Digby as Dibgy the second time Zoe says his name.
* UnclePennybags: Mr. Biskit is rich but also a pretty nice guy. He doesn't spoil his daughters and actually tries to get them to make an honest living.
* UnexplainedAccent: For some reason the Biskits' butler François [=LeGrande=] has an English accent.
* UnstoppableRage: Sunil after Blythe tells him to see everything as [[BerserkButton cobras]] in "Gailbreak!".
** And [[BewareTheNiceOnes Penny Ling]] in "Mean Isn't Your Color".
** And Vinnie at the beginning of "So You Skink You Can Dance".
* VagueAge: Blythe, her friends and the Biskit Twins don't have stated ages, nor is it said what grade they're in. They're in high school, so they're at least 14.
** Taken UpToEleven with the pets. Even if you know how fast each animal ages in comparison to humans, the show never explicitly says how long each pet has been alive for, even further that each pet ages at different rates. Though one would likely assume they're teenagers if anything by the way they normally act, yet sometimes the pets will act like they're much younger if the script calls for it.
* VillainSong: BBF's song may count as one, even with Blythe's EvilLaugh at the end.
** The Biskits' music video may count since the lyrics are just pretty much "We're better than you" over and over.
** Two For One.
** "Biskit Twins Rhapsody" kind of flip-flops this. It starts off with the Biskits praising themselves as shallow brats, but as the song goes on they proclaim their redemption, wanting to work hard and help others.
* WackyParentSeriousChild: Roger and Blythe in a nutshell.
* WingdingEyes: Zoe gets stars in her eyes when she thinks about making a movie in "Sweet (Truck) Ride"
* WorstNewsJudgmentEver: Mrs. Twombly's retirement from kung-fu quilting completely overshadowed the first moon landing.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Emma is supposed to be around Blythe's age, but her face, voice and height cause viewers to mistake her for an adult.
