Trivia / Littlest Pet Shop (2012)

  • Actor Allusion: In "Sweet Pepper" Pepper has a crush on another animal and tries to change herself to impress him. In the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic episode "Simple Ways" Rarity does the same thing. Both Pepper and Rarity are voiced by Tabitha St. Germain and both episodes aired the exact same week.
    • Russell is not the first character Samuel Vincent played who is either a hedgehog or a neat freak (though he only did Sonic's singing voice; the rest of the time it was Jaleel White)
    • In "Russell Up Some Fun" Russell utters, "Messy, messy, messy!" This was a line Samuel Vincent's character Edd said a lot in Ed, Edd 'n' Eddy.
    • In "Littlest Pet Shop of Horrors", Blythe's Halloween costume in the Cold Open is a cowgirl riding a pony that closely resembles Applejack.
  • Aluminum Christmas Trees: 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.
  • Cross-Dressing Voices: Jasper Jones is voiced by Kathleen Barr.
  • The Danza: "Terriers and Tiaras" features a dog named Sam U.L., voiced by Samuel Vincent. Also counts as a Punny Name.
  • Fake Brit: Delilah, voiced by Tabitha St. Germain.
  • Fan Nickname: "Twilight Barkle" for Zoe Trent has picked up some steam due to her fur and hair color resemblance to Twilight Sparkle.
    • Also "Appleblythe", seeing as a large portion of the episode "Terriers and Tiaras" involves Blythe sounding exactly like Applejack.
    • Roger, who looks vaguely similar to Mitt Romney, is "Mittens".
  • Mythology Gag: Blythe and other characters have big eyes and heads because that's how the original Blythe dolls looked.
  • Name's the Same: Russell Ferguson shares his name with a Krump dancer who won So You Think You Can Dance season 6. May or may not be an inversionnote 
  • Non-Singing Voice: Zoe and Penny.
  • Promoted Fanboy: MLP fan musician MandoPony contributed a song to an episode.
  • Relationship Voice Actor: 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 
  • Talking to Herself: Shannon Chan-Kent voices Whittany and Brittany Biskit, their mother Eliza, and Youngmee Song.
  • What Could Have Been: Except for Sunil, most of the pets originally had different names. Zoe was Lady Ra Ra, Penny was Lolly, Pepper was Jasmine, Minka was Margo, Russell was Winston and Vinnie was Tony.
  • The Wiki Rule: Littlest Pet Shop (2012 TV series) Wiki
  • Working Title: Blythe Loves the Littlest Pet Shop.
  • Writer Revolt: "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).
