(Miami, FL) - Who's a good boy? Today, Discovery Family announced LITTLEST PET SHOP: A WORLD OF OUR OWN, an all-new 52-episode animated series produced by Allspark Animation, a Hasbro Company, premiering Saturday, April 14 at 12/11c with two back-to-back episodes. New 11-minute episodes of the series will stream live on Discovery Family GO and will also be available on demand the following day.
Inspired by Discovery Family's 2012 hit series LITTLEST PET SHOP, "A World of Our Own" reveals a completely overhauled pet-centric world where even the littlest pet is treated like the greatest king! Pets (especially the really good ones) gain access to the Littlest Pet Shop in Paw-Tucket via a magical portal that spans between the human and pet world. Once they arrive, pets from all walks of life near and far come to celebrate who they are, with a ton of fun along the way! Featuring ski slopes operated by St. Bernards, "Pet-Ultimate" apartments with pet-appropriate accommodations (lots of perches, cardboard boxes and rooms furnished in rawhide) and the relaxing "Shake 'n' Dry" beauty salon where cats walk on your back, Paw-Tucket is a pet utopia full of purr, pounce and organic dog bones.
LITTLEST PET SHOP: A WORLD OF OUR OWN follows the many adventures of six cool and very different friends: Roxie, a lovable, supremely optimistic Boston Terrier; Jade, a Bombay short-hair with tons of catitude; Trip, a sweet-spirited hamster 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 with a proclivity for self-improvement - she wants to be the best Bev she can be!
In the back-to-back season premiere episodes titled "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.
LITTLEST PET SHOP: A WORLD OF OUR OWN is produced by Allspark Animation for Discovery Family. Stephen Davis is the executive producer for Allspark Animation. To learn more, go to www.discoveryfamilychannel.com, on Facebook at www.facebook.com/DiscFamily and on Twitter @DiscoveryFamily.
