Littlest Pet Shop is a Canadian–American children's animated television series developed by Julie McNally-Cahill and Tim Cahill for the Hub Network. The series follows Blythe Baxter (voiced by Ashleigh Ball), a teenage girl with her father, Rodger Baxter (voiced by Michael Kopsa).
The series was commissioned by the network to premiere during the network's 2011 and 2012 television schedule, in addition to eight other original programs slated for the season. Created under the working title Blythe Loves The Littlest Pet Shop, the series is produced by Hasbro's in-house production company, Hasbro Studios, and based on the toy line sharing the working title's namesake, introduced in 2010. The series is aimed at six-to eleven-year-old audiences.
Each episode is about twenty-two minutes in length. The series premiered on November 10, 2012, and completed its second season on March 11, 2014 on Pop in the United Kingdom (April 12, 2014 on the Hub Network in the United States). Critical reaction to the series has been mixed to positive, and the series remains the network's top-performing series both domestically and internationally within its demographic. The series has been nominated for a Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Award, and has produced toys based on the series as well as a mobile game and a comic book adaptation.
