Littlest Pet Shop will get yet another reboot with a new show on Discovery Family debuting on April 14th at noon ET/11am CT after My Little Pony:  Friendship is Magic. LPS had a show on Discovery Family (neé The Hub) from 2012 to 2016 lasting 104 episodes (also following MLP on the channel), but could not match the popularity of its fellow brand.

At Toy Fair NYC, it was announced by Hasbro that LPS was reassigned at a Emerging Brand while Baby Alive became the seventh franchise brand. LPS had been a franchise brand for a decade.

Back to the show, there will be no humans this time and the pet shop is central to a pet town called “Paw-tucket” (sharing its name with the home of Hasbro’s headquarters).

According to the press release from Discovery Family:

LITTLEST PET SHOP: A WORLD OF OUR OWN follows the many adventures of six cool and very different friends: Roxie, a lovable, supremely optimistic Boston Terrier; Jade, a Bombay short-hair with tons of catitude; Trip, a sweet-spirited hamster macho goofball; Quincy, an anxiety-prone, risk-averse fainting pygmy goat; Edie, a parakeet whose personality is a reflection of the 14-year-old drama-queen girl she lives with, and Bev, a cheerful, positive and supportive box turtle with a proclivity for self-improvement – she wants to be the best Bev she can be!

Fifty-two episodes have been ordered and will premiere with back-to-back episodes on April 14th. A collection of digital shorts appeared on YouTube previewing the show last year featuring Bev taking viewers on a tour of Paw-Tucket.


Editor’s Note: In case our one reader is wondering, we’ve been without access to the back end of the site for the past month due to some server errors.  Considering we’re basically a ghost town now a days, doubt many noticed, and it wasn’t exactly high on our priority list.  Wish it was different, but “blog news” sites have been slowly strangled by social media, or you know the fact we went from posting 4 things a day to 4 things a month, if even that.  Its been fun, and we still plan on crawling along like a zombie missing its lower half, but do not be surprised if you tune into the site one day to find an archive dedicated to Derpy Hooves (our original intent when we started in 2010).  Other than that, we’ll still be doing that other thing we’ve always done, you know, Spazz’s special cookies.

  • Your one reader

    Just stopped by to type ‘Thank you!’. But seriously, I’m pretty new in MLP so I do not know how this place looked in the past times, but I must say I like your format (not that flooded as EQD and more centred on show itself). So, please, keep it up (as long as you interested in this ofc). I’ll be here and not leaving anytime soon.

    • Will do. The only difference between now and “back in the day” would be more show related content, as I said in my bigger comment, we’re missing the basic news for the shows we cover, but what is considered news now a days is quite different from back in the day. But we’ll be here chugging along, don’t you worry. Thanks again.

    Same here, I always check for news and release.
    So thank you, and keep rollin !

    Sad to hear this :( I always enjoyed checking in on your website (especially when Gravity Falls and Wander Over Yonder were running). I will still keep reading anyways; just wanted to let you know that I am here!

    Your one reader thanks you for clearing up the mystery of the long silence of your one content contributor! -_^

    More cookies for me!

  • First I want to say thanks for the kind words, glad to hear from our readers despite having disappeared for almost a month, and I’ll say that we do not plan on changing into our “Archive Mode” as I call it anytime soon. Someday, but that day is definitely not today, or this year.

    We just know that a site that isn’t producing content (such as only posting 4 things for February) will sooner or later have no more readers, more so when we are not sociable in the comments or even on social media, but that’s always been our thing, the movers of news and information about these shows in the most un-bias manner possible (like real news used to be long ago), and a site dedicated to not having advertisements, worrying about money, pushing products (beyond toys from the shows), or even overly caring about fame and fortune. We just like doing what we do.

    But I know we’ve also failed to do the basics for the past couple of years too, not relaying the show related news that comes out, or even get the basics out like reviews, its why we haven’t exactly added any new recent shows to our lineup. I’ve also personally been a little busy and a little burned out, but I think I might actually be getting a little mojo back, and might start working myself on trying to get the dust blown off the site and things moving again, but I won’t make promises.

    Again, thanks for the kind words, from your underground unknown animation fan website.

    I just wanted to also say thanks and well I’ve been a regular (and still have yet to indirectly view EqD) since well way back when Derpy first spoke. Anyway we all have lives that keep us busy, but keep up the good work. It’s nice LPS is still going (I watched it back in the HUB days from when it started) as well as being given a chance by Hasbro. MLP starts its 8th season soon, and while Steve-o and Star are infrequent I’m patient for the former, and still need to binge watch the latter (as well as Gravity Falls from start to finish some summer).

    Again to Spazz’s baking, and Sprocket’s occasional sharings, and anyone else here. Thanks and keep up the good work guys!
