It's the Pet Fest! - Part 2Pitch Purrfect

The Tortoise and the Heir is the first episode of the fourth season of Littlest Pet Shop and the seventy-ninth episode overall.


While Blythe ponders her life's calling, a 150-year-old giant tortoise with an interesting past comes to the day camp and shares some life changing information with her.




  • The title is a reference the the Aesop fable, Tortoise and the Hare; which Sunil mentions in the episode.
  • This is the first time Blythe's mother, whose name is revealed to be Lauren "Betty" Baxter (née Smith), is mentioned.
  • Speedy's line, "Hey, I'm walking here!" is from the film Midnight Cowboy.


  • Blythe's recording on her phone of Penny and Vinnie is different to what actually happens. Penny is clinging to Blythe, but the phone recording shows her standing on the floor. Vinnie frantically shakes Blythe's leg, but on the phone he doesn't move it at all.
