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 That is, the former may or may not have been deliberately named after the latter.
Lampshaded with The Igors and Karinas in that Shake-A-Leg.
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 This may have even been done on purpose.
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.
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).
