Okay now that LPS is on hitatous, I have decided to review all the episodes I haven't reviewed yet in order. Granted I probably won't get to them all by the time season 3 resumes, so this project could take a while, but it is to pass the time. So we will start with the first two episodes, the ones that started it all "Blythe's Big Adventure".
We begin in a small town, birds are cherping, people are getting their morning papers, everyone is happy, this town seems like it is set in the 1950's, there meet our protagonist Blythe Baxter, Blythe loves to draw sketches, she encounters a squerrel and a dog, and does wish she knew what they were saying, well Blythe careful what you wish for, you might get it. Blythe is very happy with her life and she wouldn't change a thing, well cue her dad Roger Baxter who tells her there are moving. And faster than you can say "thanks dad for the heads up", we see Blythe and dad on their way to their new home Downtown City. And we find out while Roger might be a good pilot, he is a terrible driver, someone ought to take his license.
They arrive at their home, an apartment above a shop called Littlest Pet Shop, and we see our seven main pets, a orange hetchhog, a purple dog, a gray skunks, a blue moongoose, a green gecho, a pink monkey, and a blue panda. Unknown to Blythe someone inside the pet shop is watching them. Not long after Blythe encounters a couple girls Whittney and Brittany Biskit, they ask her in a insulting way if they want to hang out, Blythe politely declines, well Blythe quickly discovers these twins are very unusal powers, than can teleport. They don't take too kindly to Blythe's reject, and before she even settled in, Blythe had made a couple of enemies, things are off to a great start aren't they.
Blythe is misserable playing her guitar, when she noticed in room there is a passage way, she goes to see what it is, and next thing you know she slips and goes down a break away speed down a dumbwaiter all the way to the ground floor bumping her head, when she comes to she hears voices, when she sees who they are, she is shocked to see that the voices were coming from the pets at Littlest Pet Shop, who quickly goes into a song, a song called "Meet The Littlest Pet Shop Pets" and I have to say it is catchy, I remember seeing this song online before the series peremered, and got to me to at least check the show out. The pets Russell, Zoey, Pepper, Sunil, Vinnie, Minka, and Penny Ling introduce themselves and show off their talent. Blythe like most people and freaks out running from the pet shop, but she is stopped by the pet shop owner, the mysterous person watching her earlier Mrs. Twombry. Blythe tries to explain that the pets are talking, but Mrs. Twombry just thinks Blythe is talking metophoricly. When she hears a weird noice that turns out to be an airconditinor, she runs out of the pet shop, there she runs into other pets that talk, she continues to freak out.
Meanwhile, Littlest Pet Shop is not doing so good as it is on the verge of going out of business, the pets over see Mrs. Tromwbry talking to a woman about wanting to use LPS for her business that LPS closes down and wants to know when it will be available, Mrs. Twombry is not sure when, anyway the pets find out the pet shop is going to close. They panic but they think perhaps they can ask Blythe the only person who understand to think of something to save the pet shop. They tell Blythe if the pet shop closes, they will have to go to hell on earth, satin's pet shop, actually it is a place called Largest Ever Pet Shop, which is describe the pets is no different from hell. After giving Blythe their sad puppy eyes which we will find out is Blythe's weakness, she agrees. That is the end of part 1.
Part 2 begins with Blythe beginning her first day of school in Downtown City. We also see the Biskits twins dropped off by their dad, who tells them not to get exspelled, which reveals they have gotten in trouble before. Blythe having trouble opening her locker when randomly three classmates appear, a asian girl called named Youngmee Song, a dark skinned boy who is either afican american, latino or a mix of both named Jasper Jones, and a ginger named Sue Patterson. Jasper opens Blythe's locker, while the three of them instantly bond with Blythe and become her friends. One of my pet peeves is the way Blythe meet her friends was so random and uninteresting, ever other character that was introduced was in an interesting way that showcase their character. These three just show up, bond over not liking the Biskit twins, and boom their friends. As much as I love Blythe and Youngmee relationship, one negative they will always have is how they meet. They inform Blythe that Littlest Pet Shop has been doing bad since Largest Ever Pet Shop opened, LEPS owned by Fisher Biskit, father of the Biskit twins dum, dum.
Blythe is thinking of an idea on how to save the pet shop, when she shows her friends her sketches, all of a sudden Biskits out of no where again, seriously what is up with that? They take Blythe sketch book and taunt her with it and says she will never save Littlest Pet Shop, and return her book. Blythe gets an idea of how to save Littlest Pet Shop thanks to a idea she got from the Biskit twins. If the Biskits goal is to destroy Littlest Pet Shop, they are terrible at their job. Speaking of them, the way Blythe's friend describe the Biskits, they really hype them up as really mean terrible girls, and when I saw them in action, well disapointed and let down, they are not mean girls, they just snobs. Well mean girls well go out of their way to make your life messerable, and well bully at every turn, the Biskits don't do they, first of all they are too lazy and they aren't very smart, and they have no lackeys either so it is not like they are popular they have no friends, and here they are actually being more helpful. Yeah I expected more from that as far as villains are concerned.
The pets meanwhile have a dream a very disturbing dream. In this dream the Biskit twins are disguised as Mrs. Twombry and they are in Largest Ever Pet Shop aka the pet shop from hell. When the Biskits revealed their disguises, Mrs. Twombry split into two, that was diserbing image, you know for kids.
Blythe tells Mrs. Twombry about her idea to have a pet fashion show, when did she get the pets owners permission, well ignore that plot hole, the pets can't hear what they are saying, but lucky for them Zoey can read lips, or thinks she can, she interprets the conversaion of Blythe saying she found a way to set fire to the pet shop. First the pets nightmare and now this, this episode continues to really give us some dark imagily. Anyway all misunderstandings are resovled as the fashion show is a good. Blythe and the pets pass flyers all over town, including Largest Ever Pet Shop, where those so called mean Biskit twins find it and plot to find a way to sabatage the show.
It is the big night of the show, Blythe's friends come to wish her good luck, they ask how she is going to give people free money, Blythe and Mrs. Twombry are confused, they realise their flyers have been tampered with, someone wrote free money on it, who would do such a thing?, someone very mean, well it can only mean the Biskit twins. So the Biskit twins scheme was to tell people there is free money which will only increase the audiance for the fashion show in thus helping LPS get a bigger auidance, brillant did a mention they are not real smart. I tell you if these are Blythe and the pets main foes, I think they will be okay. But that is not all for some reason the Biskits are causplaying as cats, okay whatever am sure sick guys enjoyed that, and plan of throw mud on Blythe and the pets, lucky for our heros Russell discovers that, and saves the day.
The fashion show goes without a hitch, we see Vinnie do a great Michael Jackson impression, and even have a human woman faint over him, the Biskits are humilated, and Littest Pet Shop is saved. We see LPS doing great, with so much business, Mrs. Trombry gives Blythe a job at the shop where she can design pet outfits. As LPS enjoy its success, Roger returns and has no clue what has happened while he was away.
Well it was an excellent start to an excellent series, I loved the song, I thought the pets personlaity were showcased well, I thought every thing was funny. My only gripes I thought Yongmee, Jasper, and Sue introduction were kind of weak, and the Biskits are not real good villains. They were funny, but not real threatening.
