* Some of the pets have color pallets and properties that may or may not have been intentionally borrowed from ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic''. Zoe has the same coat color coordination as Twilight (her personality is more in line with Rarity), Minka is a pink monkey with some of the same mannerisms as Pinkie Pie but colors from Cheerilee and Penny Ling appears to be as sensitive as Fluttershy.
** Probably a little justified since the same animation company responsible for ''Friendship is Magic''[[note]]Studio B Productions, now part of DHX Media, and credited under the latter name[[/note]] is also responsible for ''Littlest Pet Shop''.

Added DiffLines:
