Discovery Family will be debuting an ultra adorable new series this spring when Littlest Pet Shop: A World of Our Own moves in on Saturday, April 14 at 12 noon/11c. Produced by Hasbro’s Allspark Animation under EP Stephen Davis, the 52 x 11 min. show will premiere with two back-to-back episodes. In addition to airing on TV, new episodes will stream live on Discovery Family GO and will be available on-demand the following day.
Inspired by the hit 2012 toon Littlest Pet Shop, the new series reveals an amazing new pet-centric world. Pets are transported to the Littlest Pet Shop in Paw-Tucket via a magical portal between the human and pet world. Once they arrive, pets of all descriptions can celebrate who they are and experience all sorts of fun — whether it’s enjoying the ski slopes run by St. Bernards, hanging out at “Pet-Ultimate” customized apartments, or relaxing at the Shake ‘n’ Dry beauty salon, where cats walk on your back (claws optional, we assume).
A World of Our Own follows the adventures of six pals in this pet utopia: Roxie, a lovable, supremely optimistic Boston Terrier; Jade, a Bombay short-hair with tons of catitude; Trip, a sweet-spirited hamster who’s a 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 who always seeks to be the best Bev she can be!
In the back-to-back season premiere episodes “A Pet’s Best Friend Is…” and “Pet, Peeved,” Roxie lands the dream gig of house sitting for mega pop-star Savannah, only to be bombarded by Paw-Tucket’s snobbiest pets. Jade warns Roxie that the pets are only using her to have a party, but Roxie disregards the warning and has to learn the hard way whether or not Jade is correct. Later, when their “odd couple” differences become a problem, Roxie becomes determined to be a better roommate.
