Hello everyone, it is time for me to the latest episode of Littlest Pet Shop, can you believe we are half way through the season, and like season 3 the mid season finale was great.
This week's episode titled Petnappers, in this episode A cocker spaniel is taken by her false owner and the pets try to reenact an episode of Russell's favorite show.
We begin with the pets watching TV, and the news with Sally Hairspray giving a report on a robbery in the Stacey estate manor when Russell changes the channel to watch his favorite show the Dutches of Langerly Lane, well he would if he didn't accidentally delete it, and boy is Russell not happy about that. We go to the opening.
We begin the episode back to when we began with Russell losing it and asking Blythe if there is anyway to get it back, Blythe says there isn't, but websites do post recaps of shows, well there also websites that videos of the episode, just watch it that way, but we can't promote piracy, so the other pets decide to read the recap and act out the play for Russell.
Just than a cocker spaniel runs into the shop, and she has lost bark, so Blythe can't communicate with her, after that in walks Youngmee and sees knows what is up with the dog who she names Nutmeg Dash, she think Nutmeg Dash is scared of something, in walks a man who claims he is looking for a lost dog, and while he doesn't have a license, he does know that Nutmeg Dash has a spot on her stomach and Blythe walks away with the dog. Youngmee is not trusting of this guy, and she convinces Blythe to tail this guy, so Blythe, Youngmee, and Zoey tail him.
Meanwhile the pets they have read the recap, they cast the parts and they are ready to do their little scheme.
Back to the more exciting plot, team Blythe have followed this guy to this moving truck with these two other guy, and they spy and Youngmee comes to the conclusion that these guys are the ones that robbed the Stacey mansion. Nutmeg is able to see them, and she leaves the trail for Team Blythe to follow, very smart of her, very Lassie like.
After a scene about Russell complaining about spoilers, we go back to the plot that maters, with Team Blythe following these crocks to their hideout, which is warehouse. We find out these guys plan to sell Nutmeg Dash to this pet collector guy, who I think ought to be arrested along with these crocks.
Meanwhile as the pets begin their little play, they quickly find out Sunil messed up and read the recap from the wrong episode, oh no. Well they decide to just improve.
We get to maybe my favorite Blythe and Youngmee disguise as this rich woman and her dog walker, and I tell you I thought Youngmee looked awesome in that disguise. They outbid the pet collector guy, and they win Nutmeg Dash, but quickly their cover is blown, with Zoey's help they get away, but Nutmeg Dash does not, so Blythe right in front of these crocks call the cops, and they crocks decide to just move their stuff and run away to a new hideout and just leave Blythe and Youngmee be. What kind of wimpy crocks are they?
Russell loves the play and can't wait to talk about this play at his TV show fan club, the pets realize that if Russell tells them about this play and claim it to be the TV show, he will make a fool of himself.
Team Blythe stall the crocks until the police gets here, using some classic 90's kids movie antics, I tell you I was at the edge of my seat, this is the most action packed LPS has ever been. They rescue Nutmeg Dash and stall the crocks when the police get there and arrest them. BTW just me or does it seem that Blythe, Youngmee and Zoey were having a conversation, she might not be able to talk to the pets, I think Youngmee have become familiar enough with the pets that she communicate with them like Blythe.
The pets tell Russell the truth before he can make a fool of himself, Russell their play was better than the show, and realizes the show is boring, and tuns the fan club into a fan fic club.
As Blythe and Youngmee are hanging with the pets at LPS, the lawyer for the late owner of Nutmeg Dash shows up and tells them that that Mr. Stacey put in his will, that Nutmeg got to pick her next owner and she picks Youngmee. And Youngmee find a pet ends on an exciting emotional note.
My thoughts Wow what an episode, I didn't think the Youngmee arc would be settled so soon, but yeah she has a pet. Over the course of the series, we have seen the Biskits, we have seen Youngmee get pets, when is Blythe getting a pet?
Anyway I do love that we actually get some real villains here, the world of LPS we have jerks, our antagonists, but never anything criminal. I guess the world of LPS is not rainbows and unicorns after all. Though still there were very tame, they didn't have any weapons, when Blythe and Youngmee they didn't tie them up or anything.
Watching the Russell plot, I was like please let's back to the main plot here, it was so action packed, I was at the edge of my seat, granted still it is more little kid movies action, it is hardly like the old Jem and the Holograms cartoon, now that is action, no one was tied up inside a volcano or anything.
And the fact that Nutmeg Dash was too tired to talk, made it feel more like Lassie, and it give Youngmee the chance to show how she can connect with a pet without having Blythe's ability.
As for the Russell plot, I was so happy to see all these cameos, let's see we had Mary Francis, Tootsie, Digby, and Scout Carey It was a funny little plot, though it did fill up time between the action plot.
And it ends with Youngmee getting her pet, I was so happy, this episode this is except for maybe the season premiere, the best episode of the episode, gold tier episode for sure. I wonder if we will see those crocks at the end, I am all for more real villains.
1) Youngmee - this was Youngmee episode to shine, I love that she got her pet, I love how she shows her own way of communicating with pets.
2) Real danger and villains - we have some actual real villains this time, and there was a sense of danger I never felt on LPS ever before, he was so much fun to watch.
3) Nutmeg Dash - she is so adorable I just love her.
1) None really, the B plot got way of the exciting A plot, but I have nothing to complain about from that.
So you guessed it, my score for this episode which I think except for maybe The Tortoise and The Heir, is by far the best episode of the season. So tell next time have a nice LPS day. Bye.
