Trivia / Littlest Pet Shop (2012)

  • Absentee Actor: The following is a list of episodes where any of the main pets are absent.
    • Minka: Bakers And Fakers, Eight Arms To Hold You, Game of Groans
    • Penny Ling: Bakers And Fakers, Terriers And Tiaras, Eight Arms To Hold You, The Sister Story, Steamed
    • Pepper: Bakers And Fakers, Eight Arms To Hold You, The Big Feathered Parade, The Sister Story, Game of Groans

    • Sunil: The Big Feathered Parade, Steamed
    • Vinnie: Terriers And Tiaras, Steamed
    • Zoe: Eight Arms To Hold You, The Sister Story, Game of Groans, Steamed
  • 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 on the exact same day.
    • 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 "The Expo Factor", Emma remarks about she wishes to be a dog when complimenting Blythe's dog sweater. Her voice actress is Brooks Goldner, who voiced a puppy named Rebound on Pound Puppies (2010) .
    • In "Littlest Pet Shop of Horrors", Blythe's Halloween costume in the Cold Open is a cowgirl riding a pony that closely resembles Applejack.
    • In the episode "Tiniest Animal Store", Zoe thinks she will played by Lola Falanagaga (the in show actress that played Blythe). Lola's voice actress is Nicole Oliver, who voices Zoe.
  • 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.
  • Celebrity Voice Actor:
    • "It's The Pet Fest" has a dog character named Heidi who's voiced by Heidi Klum. Shylo Sharity does her singing though.
    • Casey Wilson voices Felina Meow in "Littlest Pet Street".
    • While not exactly a celebrity, Emma Hart and Peachie Fluffton are both voiced by Brooke Goldner, daughter of Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner.
  • 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 Trent and Penny Ling's singing voices are done by Kylee Epp and Laura Hastings.
    • Heidi's singing is done by Shylo Sharity. Seeing that Heidi Klum was based in Los Angeles, this makes sense.
  • Post-Script Season: While the show never had much of a Myth Arc, season four was this for the series as the finale of season 3 ended on a big spectacle that involved the return of a lot characters implying that the writers felt that that was was going to be the last season before Hasbro gave them one more. The finale of S4 and the series as a whole felt like any other episode of the show with the only big thing to happen being Roger, Blythe's father, revealing he always knew that she (and her mother) could talk to animals. The creators of the show actually wanted a season 5 before they got word that the show was canceled due to low toy sales.
  • 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).
