    Main Characters 

Blythe Baxter

Voiced by: Ashleigh Ball

Blythe Baxter is an aspiring fashion artist who along with her father, moved to the Big City apartment above the Littlest Pet Shop, a day-camp for pets. She has a mysterious talent on understanding and talking to animals, usually she talks to them and helps the animals to save the Pet Shop from closing down.
Tropes associated with Blythe:

Minka Mark

Voiced by: Kira Tozer

Minka Mark is a female pink Monkey who is a talented painter. Usually high on energy, she is an expert regarding abstract art. But the downside, Minka gets easily distracted by shiny objects, hanging out on the tire swing, or looking for something to eat.
Tropes associated with Minka:

Penny Ling

Voiced by: Jocelyn Loewen (speaking), Laura Hastings (singing)

Penny Ling is a female white and purple Panda. She usually has a sweet and gentle demeanor, and is the most sensitive of the pets. She also loves to dress up and show off her ribbon dancing.
Tropes associated with Penny:
  • Badass Adorable: She, with the help of Vinnie, Russell, and Sunil, manages to rescue Blythe and the other pets that were trapped on the dumbwaiter.
  • Beware The Nice and Quiet Ones: "Mean Isn't Your Color" shows the usually sweet, soft-spoken little Panda go into a raging fit, and the other terrified pets don't even understand why.
    • In "Dumb Dumbwaiter", she very quickly gets fed up with the male pets' macho act and unwillingness to listen to her, and even Vinnie quickly thinks better of crossing the angry bear determined to rescue her trapped friends no matter what.
  • Big Eater: She's capable of finishing off an entire fruit tray in mere seconds (as seen in "Bad Hair Day"). Also, in "Dumb Dumbwaiter," the only reason she didn't get trapped in the dumbwaiter was because she stopped to eat popcorn (off the floor) after downing an entire bowl of it.
    • Also if you count the fantasies, in the Sweet Shop Song, there is a scene where she takes a massive bite out of the candy table.
  • Break the Cutie: It's really easy to make her cry since she's so sensitive. Skunk friend Pepper learned about this the hard way in "Penny for your Laughs".
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Phlegmatic
  • Fragile Flower: She has the gentlest disposition in the LPS gang and can get her feelings hurt very easily.
  • Friend to All Living Things: She can get a fly to perch on her hand like a Disney princess would a bird.
  • Full-Name Basis
  • Gentle Giant: She's both the biggest and sweetest of the pets.
  • Large Ham: Quite a bit during "So You Skink You Can Dance" whenever she panicked.
  • Multicolored Hair: White and Purple.
  • Nice Girl: She's extremely hesitant about voicing any negative opinion she may have out of fear of offending others. She's also the only one that didn't find Pepper's insult comedy funny from the get-go.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: At least when food is concerned, it seems. Upon seeing Sugar Sprinkles has sprinkles on her head, she licks her head without even asking if it's okay.
  • Ocular Gushers
  • Pandaing To The Audience
  • Pastimes Prove Personality: She's a ribbon dancer.
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: Can rip a large armchair at least twice her size in half when she is angry.
  • Purple Eyes: More in the lines of Gray Eyes due to the grayish tint on them.
  • Shrinking Violet: Reflected by her mostly purple color-scheme.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Has shades of this from time to time. In "Mean Isn't Your Color", she fantasizes about being the center of attention at the ball, and in "Topped With Buttercream", she mentions how having the "super-cute" Buttercream around won't put so much pressure on her to be "impossibly cute."

Pepper Mildred Clark

Voiced by: Tabitha St. Germain

Pepper Clark is a female gray and white striped Skunk whose talent is comedy acts. She usually can make everyone laugh but is sometimes brash.
Tropes associated with Pepper:
  • Adorkable
  • Artistic License - Biology: Pepper has digitigrade hind legs. Skunks actually have plantigrade hind legs.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Don't Explain the Joke: She awkwardly tries doing just this when Penny Ling doesn't laugh at her "Duck walks into a store" joke.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: Choleric
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: A lot of her jokes are basically of this variety.
  • Innocently Insensitive: Mainly in "Penny For Your Laugh." At first, she honestly doesn't realize that her new insult comedy routine can be genuinely hurtful, regardless of the insult being "just a joke." Until she inadvertently makes Penny Ling cry, that is.
  • Joke Exhaustion: A flashback in "Penny For Your Laughs" shows her running the gag of splattering others with pistachio pudding into the ground.
  • Pastimes Prove Personality: She's a comedian.
  • Plucky Comic Relief
  • Serious Business: In "Sweet Pepper", she rejects the suggestion to laugh at everything Captain Cuddles says. As a comedian, she won't laugh at something if she doesn't think it's funny.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: Her friends give her a makeover in "Sweet Pepper." The results surprise her.
    "Here Zoe, you handed me a picture of a pretty skunk instead of a mirror."
  • Smelly Skunk: Mostly when she's anxious or upset. Sometimes subverted when she's really happy, then she actually gives off a very pleasant smell.
  • So Unfunny It's Funny: Frankly, a lot of the actual humor of her stand-up comes, more often than not, from how lame her jokes are and how enthusiastically she tells them.
  • Tomboy: It's most apparent in "Dumb Dumbwaiter". During the girls' beauty treatments, she eats the eye cucumbers, has no idea how to use powder, and uses a nail file to scratch her back. She even says "This girl stuff is fun!"

Russell Ferguson

Voiced by: Samuel Vincent

Russell Ferguson is a male orange Hedgehog and the organizer of the group. He's the one to keep everyone in the Littlest Pet Shop on track, making sure the others won't wreck it in the process. Is occasionally mistaken for a porcupine.
Tropes associated with Russell:

Sunil Nevla

Voiced by: Peter New

Sunil Nevla is a male blue Mongoose and wannabe stage magician. Very timid and insecure in demeanor, he enjoys performing magic, but his tricks rarely work the way he wants.
Tropes associated with Sunil:

Vincent Alfonso "Vinnie" Terrio

Voiced by: Kyle Rideout

Vinnie Terrio is a male green Gecko who is gifted in dancing. His dancing skills are top-notch, but sometimes causes a lot of mess to the other pets in the shop.
Tropes associated with Vinnie:

Zoe Trent

Voiced by: Nicole Oliver (speaking), Kylee Epp (singing)

Zoe Trent is a female purple Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who is gifted at singing. A born diva, Zoe likes to be fabulous and to sing, wanting to achieve her goal as the best singer. She is one of the first animals to interact with Blythe.
Tropes associated with Zoe:

    Recurring Characters 

The Biskit Twins

Voiced by: Shannon Chan-Kent

Whittany and Brittany are the twin daughters of Fisher Biskit, the owner of The Largest Ever Pet Shop, a much bigger and meaner pet store and Littlest Pet Shop's chief competitor. They also serve as Blythe's rivals after she declined their offers twice: once after "offering" to take her shopping, and again after "inviting" her to sit with them during lunchtime at school.
Tropes associated with The Biskit Twins:
  • Alliterative Name: Brittany Biskit.
  • Alpha Bitches: Not ones to take 'no' for an answer, especially from someone like Blythe.
  • Anti Villains: Despite being rivals to Blythe, most of the time they aren't really malicious to either Blythe, her family, or even her friends.
  • The Atoners: Roger during his brief tenure as their butler, convinces them to be nice and help others. Which somewhat works, as they become temporarily reformed. Yet wears off halfway before the day ends, and before they could make amends with Blythe. In fact it was Blythe entering that triggered them back to normal.
  • Cool Pet: They have a baby shark of all things.
  • Deadpan Snarkers
  • Disproportionate Retribution: Their idea of handling Blythe politely declining their offers of companionship involves publicly humiliating Blythe by means of chocolate icing and cat litter.
  • Disproportionate Reward: Their response to Blythe standing up to Jerk Jock Vi Tannabruzzo for them is to make her their new BFF, lavishing her with gifts and treats.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: They may be brats, but they know good manners. In "What's in the Batter?" they call Youngmee out for yawning without covering her mouth.
  • Evil Is Petty: Constantly, especially more pronounced in season 2. Pretty much any time Blythe is interested in something and they find out, they jump at the chance to join in whatever she's doing just to make her look bad. This reaches new lows in the Expo two parter where they attempt to wreck her kiosk (only stopped when they hear Mrs. Twombly coming back), try to prevent her from reaching the expo, tricking her into missing her appointed photo shoot, and stealing Blythe's kiosk and naming it as their own.
  • Friendly Enemy: The show's promos even call them Blythe's "freaky frenemies".
  • Genius Ditz: They secretly have amazing math skills. By "they," we mean both of them, collectively. One can solve algebraic equations near-effortlessly, but can't understand them unless they're put in terms of clothes, while the other has no idea how to properly solve the equations, but can read them well enough to put them in terms the other can understand.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Without Brittany around, Whittany is actually rather friendly to Blythe.
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: Opposite hair colors, slightly different outfits.
  • Ironic Name: Whittany has black hair, while Brittany has white hair.
  • Like Is, Like, a Comma: They can't go a single sentence without, like, adding like.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Both of them. In the second episode, they dress in form-fitting Cat Girl outfits for camouflage, and their general design seems to invoke this.
  • Nightmare Fuel Station Attendant: No offense, girls, but modelling your cake after yourselves and filling it full of red borscht berry filling isn't the most comforting concept in the world.
  • Off Screen Teleportation: They do this a lot, freaking Blythe out every time.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: They've dressed up as cats and as male, mustachioed newspaper reporters, completely expecting to fool people with the disguises.
  • Peek-a-Bangs
  • Pun: The name Biskits are basically similar to actual Biscruits.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning
  • Rich Bitches
  • Too Dumb to Live: After breaking Blythe's phone, they actually go and brag about it to their father.
  • Trickster Twins: Subverted in that while they're always a rather nasty duo, the two of them aren't all that bright, either.
  • Unmoving Plaid: Their skirts.
  • Valley Girls
  • White and Grey Morality: In "The Nest Hats Craze" they break Blythe's phone and hold her captive as part of their plan to raise money to replace it.

Youngmee Song

Voiced by: Shannon Chan-Kent

One of Blythe's good friends in school, who always has an open ear for her worries. Her aunt runs Sweets Delights, the sweet shop next to Littlest Pet Shop.
Tropes associated with Youngmee:

Sue Patterson

Voiced by: Kira Tozer

Another friend of Blythe's at school, who likes all kinds of sports and seems to admire Blythe a big deal.
Tropes associated with Sue:

Jasper Jones

Voiced by: Kathleen Barr

Blythe's only male friend at school.
Tropes associated with Jasper:

Captain Roger Baxter

Voiced by: Michael Kopsa

Blythe's dad, an airline pilot.
Tropes associated with Captain Baxter:
  • Bumbling Dad
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: In spite of his questionable driving skills, he's apparently a good enough pilot to receive his promotion at the start of the series.
  • Drives Like Crazy: Although anyone who can absentmindedly drive into a populated subway without killing or maiming anybody (that we know of) must be a pretty good pilot.
  • Good Dad: He can bumble a bit, but he's very loving and he's generally on the ball.

Mrs. Anna Twombly

Voiced by: Kathleen Barr

A kindly, elderly woman and The Littlest Pet Shop's owner.
Tropes associated with Mrs. Twombly:

Buttercream Sunday

Voiced by: Cathy Weseluck

Buttercream Sunday is a female yellow and brown Netherland Dwarf rabbit who is good on dancing. Her owner is Youngmee Song's aunt Christie, who owns the candy shop named Sweets Delights. She is very active and hyper, but also very mischievous.
Tropes associated with Buttercream:
  • Buffy Speak
  • Cloudcuckoolander
  • Flanderization: In her first episode, she was reasonably coherent, even singing an entire song normally. In later episodes, she could barely put enough real words together to make herself understood by the others.
  • Genki Girl: All the time, except when she's calmed down.
  • Green Eyes
  • Mad Eye: Just look at her!
  • Meaningful Name: Her first name, Buttercream is a type of frosting used in cakes and pastries. Sunday forms a pun with "sundae".
  • Sweet Tooth
  • Sixth Ranger: Shaping up to be this to the main pets. While a few of the guest pets have appeared in more than one episode, Buttercream is well on her way to becoming a Recurring Character.
  • Verbal Tic: "Anywho"

Josh Sharp

Voiced by: Samuel Vincent

A boy that Blythe bumps into and promptly falls for. He seems to enjoy skate-boarding, but also likes to read and plays in a band.
Tropes associated with Josh:

Sugar Sprinkles

Voiced by: Kelly Metzger

A cat who is apparently Christie's pet (though Christie's never acknowledged her on-screen). Lives in the Sweet Truck. Has an extremely chill demeanor.
Tropes associated with Sugar Sprinkles:
  • Fun Personified
  • Meaningful Name: She's covered in sugary sprinkle toppings, hence her name.
  • Nerves of Steel: She's so far gone, she doesn't mind being in an out-of-control truck.
  • Shipper on Deck: In "Secret Cupet", she uses a love spell that causes Russell to fall in love with Penny Ling, Sunil to fall in love with Pepper, and Vinnie to fall in love with Minka (which seems to be Pandering To The Fanbase). Though she comes to regret this, and she admits Russell is being immensely creepy, she immediately attempts to do it to Russell again afterwards—twice.
  • The Stoner: Her personality.
  • Wandering Minstrel: Breaks out into impromptu singing with her guitar.
  • You Taste Delicious: Penny licks her sprinkles-covered head first chance they meet. She is pretty okay with this and invites the other pets to do the same.

Madison

Voiced by: Shannon Chan-Kent

A girl that Mrs. Twombly hires to replace Blythe while she attends fashion school. She first appears in "Summertime Blues".
Tropes associated with Madison:
  • The Ditz
  • Neat Freak: She wears a face mask when feeding the pets, and uses hand sanitizer after shaking hands with Blythe.
  • Put on a Bus: She pretty much vanishes after Mrs. Twombly decides to take the pets to visit Blythe.

  • The Ditz: She brought a German/English dictionary on a trip to Paris.

Mona Autumn

Voiced by: Tabitha St. Germain

The editor for the fashion magazine, Tres Blasé, and the owner of Cairo. She first appears in "Alligators and Handbags".
Tropes associated with Mona.
  • Caustic Critic: If she likes someone's work, they gain huge influence, but if she doesn't, she will chew them out. Her entire staff is afraid of her. However, it's all just an act—it weeds out the would-be designers who are not truly passionate about their work.
  • Motor Mouth: Due to her packed schedule, she often speaks quickly.
  • Mean Boss: Seeing how she is very demanding at all times, her assistant is completely run ragged to the point of near insanity, and Mona never allows days off except for very rare circumstances. Mona can be seen as this.

Joey Featherton

Appears in: "Heart of Parkness"

Voiced by: Peter New

A pigeon who translates for the raccoon tribe in the park.
Tropes associated with Joey:
  • Erudite Stoner: Joey definitely gives off this vibe, though of the New-Age Retro Hippie variant as opposed to Sugar Sprinkles's "party" variant. Both have an intimate knowledge of their home environments, though.
  • Glass Eye: Joey's left eye does not move with his other eye.
  • Hannibal Lecture: Joey attempts one to convince Sunil to stay. It works for all of two seconds.
    Sunil: I do not wish to get "used to it"! I would like to go home!

Tropes associated with Cairo:
  • Cats Are Mean: Averted. She is quite friendly with Blythe, giving her some advice regarding her owner.
