Pixel Pinkie is an Australian/Canadian and British animated television series produced and created by Blue Rocket Productions in association with the Nine Network and principally funded by The Film Finance Corporation Australia. It started airing on 29 August 2009.

Pixel Pinkie is about two girls, Nina and Anni. On her birthday Nina gets a mobile cellphone with a digital genie named Pixel Pinkie in it which can make her wishes come true. But Nina and Anni have to keep Pixel Pinkie away from others. They have to keep it as a secret. Each episode sees the girls wishing for something from Pixel Pinkie then offending her when their wish goes wrong, leaving the girls to solve their problem alone.

Not to be confused with Pinkie Pie of My Little Pony fame, despite her also having a perky personality and getting into magic-involved hi-jinks from time to time.

Pixel Pinkie contains examples of:

  • All-Cheering All the Time: Happens to Nina in "The 'B' Word" when a carelessly worded statement (that she wished she could be as enthusiastic about cheering for basketball as Pinkie) to Literal Genie Pinkie causes her start speaking in cheers every time someone mentions the word "basketball".
  • Alliterative Name: Pixel Pinkie.
  • Alpha Bitch: Suzi, who immediately marks Nina as a target for her strange clothes and Amazingly Embarrassing Parents.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Nina dearly loves her Hippie Parents, but she does wish they would act a tad more conventionally in public.
  • Babysitting Episode: "Clones R Us". In said episode, Nina tries to convince Pinkie to make a clone of her to babysit while she goes to Suzi's party.
  • Betty and Veronica: Nina has a crush on Suzi's boyfriend Max.

  • Big Man on Campus: Alpha Bitch Suzi's boyfriend Max is the captain of the basketball team, and gets on well with everyone in school, including Nina and Anni.
  • Cosmetic Catastrophe: Happens when Pinkie uses her powers to perform a makeover on Nina and Anni. They actually wanted a house makeover.
  • Dresses the Same: Among the first wishes Nina asks Pixel Pinkie for is to look as cool as Suzi. Of course, Pinkie dresses Nina in Suzi's exact outfit.
  • Genie in a Bottle: Pinkie is a digital genie imprisoned in a really old cell phone. When Nina frees her, Pixie becomes her servant. This appears to be an unlimited wishes deal, and Pixie is Nina's servant so long as Nina owns the phone. At first, Nina doesn't seem the least bit impressed with any of this.
  • Girl Posse: Suzi has a pair of Beta Bitches whose sole function is to attempt to agree with Suzi more than the other.
  • Hippie Parents: Nina's parents, Zeph and Fern. They wear tie-dyed clothes, are vegetarians, keep chickens in the backyard, and drive an VW Kombi powered by biofuel.
  • Literal Genie: Pinkie tends to a fairly literal approach to granting any wishes she is given.
  • Our Genies Are Different: Pinkie is a digital genie trapped in a really old mobile phone. She has to grant unlimited wishes to whomever owns the phone. She is generally well-meaning, but often falls into Literal Genie territory.
  • Secondary Character Title: Nina is the main protagonist while the titular Pixel Pinkie is the deuteragonist.
  • Secret Keeper: Anni is the only one besides Nina who knows about Pixel Pinkie, and often has to make up cover stories when Pinkie's magic causes thing to go awry.
  • Split Personality: Pixel Pinkie adopts a different personality depending on the faceplace installed on Nina's phone. The normal pink faceplate gives Pinkie her default Genki Girl personality, a grey faceplate makes her an Emotionless Girl, a camo faceplace gives her The Squadette attitude, while a flower-themed faceplace makes her as much as of a New-Age Retro Hippie as Nina's parents.
  • Supernatural Phone: Pinkie is a digital Genie in a Bottle imprisoned in a really old mobile phone.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Pinkie has pink hair. But, then again, she is a digital genie.
