Littlest Pet Shop...It needs to be about 20% cooler.

Yes, I'm watching Littlest Pet Shop...

While I'm waiting for My Little Pony's 4th Season to begin.
Let's get a few things over before I begin:
It has a bunch of people who work on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Zoe the dog looks like Twilight Sparkle and is voiced by Celestia, (and her sister is voiced by Luna's VA using her Wahaha! voice) and Blythe is Rainbow Dash!

OK This Incarnation of Littlest Pet Shop is a combination of two Toylines: One is Obviously, Littlest Pet Shop, the other is the Blythe Dolls. (Both Originally by Kenner, but the 'Bro ate Kenner, so...)
The Previous incarnation  was a bit weird... Seriously!

We follow the life of Blythe, a girl who moved to the big city with her father. She lives on an apartment above the Littlest Pet Shop. She also can speak with animals... Like Dr. Dolittle... Cause Hasbro needs to sell Blythe dolls and LPS stuff. So she befriends the pets and Ms. Twombly (the owner of the Littlest Pet Shop... who is also Dot Matrix on Reboot and is known for releasing the Snakemen...)

(also The Great and Powerful TRRRRRIXIE!!)

So Rainbow Dash  Blythe gets to work at the Littlest Pet Shop. There she befriends the Pets.

Let's Start with Zoe: the Diva dog that kinda looks like Twilight Sparkle...
Pepper: The Comedian Skunk that kinda reminds me a bit of Ellen Degeneres.
Russell: the hedgehog. He kinda reminds me of Edd from Edd, Ed and Eddy.
Sunil: the Mongoose. He's A smidge braver than Cringer... He also goes on Full Battle Cat... err.... Mongoose when it involves his natural enemy...

(This made me LOVE Sunil!)
Vinnie: The Dancing Gecko who has a bit of an Italian-American vibe.
Minka: OK If I could describe her in 3 Words Flat I'd say: Monkeyfied Pinkie Pie!
Penny Ling:Shy Panda... Shy Panda... That is all!

The 5-6 Episodes I've seen have shown me some things:
-Yes, it's NOT My Little Pony. While it has a lot of stuff that is vaguely related to My Little Pony; the show is NOT Trying to be My Little Pony!
-I dislike Zoe, Russell and Penny Ling. I kinda like Pepper, Sunil, Minka and Vinnie, BUT I'd rather see more about Blythe's problems than the pets... Mostly cause Blythe has more chances to encounter...

Seriously, the Biskit Twins are the only thing aside Blythe saying things that are so not Rainbow Dash with her Rainbow Dash voice that makes this show awesome to me. The pets have some shining moments (like Sunil vs Cobras posted above). But the problem is that the Show has a rather large cast: Blythe + Seven Pets and they are pretty much doing 2 storylines at the same time. Now don't get me wrong, I like it... I just feel that it needs to be a bit cooler... especially when dealing with the pets. They seem to be an afterthought... which is weird since the show's name is LITTLEST PET SHOP.

Yeah, I LIKE The Show, but it's not like I'm going cuckoo about it like with My Little Pony (BTW, the Blind Bag Cheat works!!) I'll watch the toon, but don't expect me to go and buy LPS toys... (the Biskit Twins may be the exception. Cause they're like, totally cool!)
