This is the first of two upcoming episodes where we have a classic rock reference in the title. This is the one for the song of the same name by the ironically-named band War. Now back to the current day.
After chasing a fly “Tom and Jerry”-style, Vinnie befriends a genial spider named Weber (voiced by Peter New). However, this may be a problem with Sunil since he has arachnophobia (fear of spiders). So, Vinnie and the other pets try to hide him from Sunil. That is our A-plot.
The B-plot is Blythe also meeting a new friend named Cora. She works at the thrift shop and is into fashion like Blythe. They strike up quite a conversation to the point where Blythe is unintentionally neglecting Sue and Youngmee. Blythe is so caught up with Cora, with the latter suggesting that the former apply her pet fashions to people, that Sue and Youngmee feel pushed aside.

Movies and reality shows are referenced quite a lot on Littlest Pet Shop, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen the combination of Rear Window and Wipeout used ever. Yes, Wipeout is technically a game show, and a questionably dangerous one at that, but let’s see how FM DeMarco combines Hitchcock with a questionably dangerous game show.
After a couple of Hitchcock references with a flyer in the wind, we come to LPS to see two things: Blythe having designer’s block coming up with new pet fashions and Penny Ling obsessed with a Wipeout-type show called “Faceplant” which so happens to be for pets and tryouts are coming to Downtown City. Penny Ling decides to enter the pets for the tryouts, so they practice using the home game version (hammerhead sharks not included). However, it leads to Russell spraining his quills and he is recuperating inside some round-type device and only has the back window to look at which drives him insane, but not before driving the others insane with a duck call supposed to be used for emergencies.

Well, this is it. Episode 65 of Littlest Pet Shop. Will there be a twist to the series? The synopsis pretty much teased it which is an improvement from that the Hub did with Episode 65 of MLP when they did a little more than teased it. But I digress.
It’s Young Entrepreneurs’ Week at school and Youngmee presents her tasty treats for pets with Blythe as her assistant. The presentation goes off so well, that Ms. Amster suggests that the treats could be a real product and “the next big thing.” After the theme song though, we see Buttercream dashing to the pet shop in horror. She doesn’t like the treats. Youngmee wants to try them on the pets, but she doesn’t know that Blythe has told them to pretend to like them even if they don’t (read: lie). The pets to pretend to like the treats, but really don’t either.
