Tabitha St. Germain,
The new incarnation of Littlest Pet Shop is the creation of spouses Julie McNally Cahill and Tim Cahill, creators of Cartoon Network's "My Gym Partner's A Monkey" and former Warner Brothers executives. The show centers on a girl named Blythe Baxter who moves to Downtown City with her father, and gains the ability to speak to animals when she goes down a dumbwaiter into the pet shop. As the title implies, this is one of my favorite cartoons of the 2010s. It's in my top 3. The show isn't perfect, but its good outweighs the bad. Blythe is a well rounded protagonist in that she's ambitious in her dreams, but knows when to scale back. She's intelligent, kind to animals, and is a great person to be with. The pets all have their comedic moments, and have traits that make them something other than comic relief. Roger manages to be funny without crossing the line, and a good father. The Biskits are a bit annoying, but they're comedic too. Mrs. Twombly is just hilarious with her door knob obsession and strange antics, but she can be a good guardian of sorts to Blythe, and I think they have a special connection. While Sue and Jasper could be more developed, I think they're fine, and Youngmee is the best of Blythe's friends. She can cook, think, likes boy bands like Blythe, and is the only one of Blythe's friends that knows she can talk to animals. The show isn't as focused on morality, making for some meh episodes sometimes, but the show can still provide good laughs, great songs from Daniel Ingram, and plenty of genuine heart ad emotion to go along with good morals.
My Grade: 9.5/10 (A)(I rounded up for my score up there.
