Blythe is the main protagonist of the series and is an aspiring fashion artist and designer. She is very kind and compassionate and is always ready to assist others in need, whether it be the pets, Mrs. Twombly or her friends at school. She has dark brown hair, light blue eyes and is always wearing fashionable, unique outfits. Blythe, along with her father, Roger Baxter, move to an apartment in Smalltown Tokyo (Downtown City in the dub.) above a pet store called the Littlest Pet Shop. Soon after moving into the building, Blythe discovers that the animals there can talk. She comes to enjoy working at the Littlest Pet Shop not long after she saves the store from going out of business. Although she has wanted to be on TV all her life, she is also extremely camera shy.

Voiced by: Kappei Yamaguchi (Japanese), Samuel Vincent (English, Edited), Eric Vale (English, Uncut)

(Vinnie will ruin them insead on occasion.)

Unfortunately, his attempts to do magic often fail and blow up in his face. He also gets frightened easily and tends to buckle under pressure. Despite this, however, he becomes extremely aggressive at the thought of cobras or when Pepper is in danger. He is also in love with Pepper, but is too shy to tell her his feelings.

Unfortunately, he ends up tripping over his own tail while he dances. He can dance much better without his tail. He also flirts with some of the female pets at the pet shop. (Mostly Zoe.) His owner is one of Blythe's friends at school who is the son of a jazz musician.

She is the peacekeeper of the group and somewhat of a pacifist. She is also quite sensitive and somewhat shy around people or animals she doesn't know.

She is an extremely rare species of bear called the pygmy giant panda as well as the last member of her species.
