"And to get O.B.'s "lotsa luck" in person, it's the ultimate showbiz seal of approval."
Pepper Clark

Lotsa Luck is the twenty-second episode of the first season of Littlest Pet Shop.


When Pepper's comedy idol visits, she tries to earn his approval, meanwhile Blythe discovers Mrs. Twombly's secret past.


Zoe and Blythe watch Pepper as she digs through her comedy prop items. As they begin to walk away, Zoe asks if anyone special will be coming to the pet shop soon and Blythe checks a list to find someone named "O.B." is coming, which apparently stands for "Old Bananas", as revealed by a very excited Pepper.

She reveals to them that Old Bananas is a big pet comedian who had his own show at one point. She is his biggest fan and wonders if maybe he's coming to see her comedy routine. She also tells them that she's learned everything from him and asks Blythe to come and see her performance for him before she leaves. Then Zoe begins to ask Pepper if she thinks O.B. would really like her act, which causes her to worry for a moment.

Blythe heads into the storage room to look for the hammock Pepper asked her to retrieve. She begins to dust the room and finds a strange chest. She checks to find a strange picture of a girl named Anna T, and realizes that it's Mrs. Twombly.

As Pepper continues to work on setting up her act, Russell tries to make her see whats wrong with her idea. But Pepper wont hear of it and thinks that this is the approval she needs, with it, it means she really is a great comedian.

Out in front, O.B. happens to arrive with his owner then. He follows Penny to the playroom while she chats about Pepper with him.

In the playroom meanwhile, Pepper has been trying to put on a routine for the other pets, but they fail to find it amusing. Unknown to Pepper, O.B. also watched and makes his presence known to everyone. Pepper begins to worry as he critisizes her performance but she tries to tell him that she was only rehearsing in hopes of not having him think badly of her yet. He shows everyone a few tricks and tells a couple of jokes after handing them some autographed pictures and goes to lay down while the others hang out with him.

At home, Blythe is showing Youngmee what she was able to find involving Mrs. Twombly. They look up what kung fu quilting is and find a picture of her, revealing that not only was she a champion at it, but she was also the one who got it started. But Blythe notes that Mrs. Twombly never mentioned this before and decides to print out a picture to show her, in hopes of getting some answers.

By now Pepper is beginning to get upset and down. Old Bananas doesn't like anything she's tried to do yet and she's beginning to think he isn't even worth it since he doesn't find her funny. Russell tries to once again tell her that he isn't like how he really was on TV, but since Pepper doesn't get it, he tells her to just try to make him laugh like she would anyone else. This seems to work, but now Pepper wants him to help her out, which he doesn't really agree to.

Blythe goes to visit Mrs. Twombly to bring up kung foo quilting with her. She shows her the pictures, but Mrs. Twombly seems to be rather annoyed about it. She claims it isn't a big deal and tells Blythe to just forget it before storming off. But Blythe can't understand what the problem is and observes the pictures again.

Once again Pepper tries to perform for O.B., but he ends up falling asleep. Russell tells Pepper not to bother, but Pepper thinks that she has to keep up doing what he wants, even if its a little questionable.

Blythe runs outside while Mrs. Twombly cleans. She asks her how she did it, and Mrs. Twombly explains that at one point when she was younger she had been having some stomach problems. She was so bored and she took up quilting, but even then she remained bored and had taken up to watching kung fu movies and just put the moves she learned into her quilting.

Blythe is very impressed by this and what she can still do now, but Mrs. Twombly claims that what she can do now was nothing like what she used to be able to do. Blythe then asks her why she quit, and Mrs. Twombly explains that soon she just had to keep quilting against others until she got an injury and decided to retire. Her retiring had such an effect that nobody ever wanted to think about kung fu quilting ever again.

In the playroom Pepper begins her act. The first one fails, but she isn't shaken by this because she has at least ninety-six more tricks to show off. After so many attempts she realizes nothing worked and becomes very depressed over it.

Blythe comes by to see Mrs. Twombly again. She asked her how she was able to give up kung fu quilting so easily, but Mrs. Twombly claimed that she felt a lot better after opening the pet shop. She may have been famous but she's done it already, and she wasn't even happy back then. But Blythe still doesn't understand and tells her that she is sure she and her friends would have loved to have learned it. Realizing how late she is though, Blythe runs into the playroom to see how Pepper is doing.

By now, Pepper has gone through everything with no success. Seeing Blythe there though, she tries one final thing. She pretend to act like someone with a very bad itch and she is able to get everyone in the room laughing. Except for Old Bananas, until she ends up tripping on a banana peel and all of her items ends up falling onto him. He laughs while everyone cheers and compliments Pepper on a job well done. He explains to her that he was only testing her, because as a comedian she would have to deal with the critic that may never find her amusing. He then thanks her for a job well done, then begins to tease her before seeing his caretaker. But before he goes, he gives her his signature Lotsa Luck gesture. When asked how she feels finally getting his approval, she claims it was okay but she actually was just happy that they liked it more.

In the pet shop, Blythe, Youngmee, Sue and Jasper are each wearing a kung fu uniform and Mrs. Twombly begins to teach them the basics of kung fu quilting.


Pepper: I'm gonna get his thumbs up, "lotsa luck", and then the world will be my toaster.
Russell: I think you mean oyster.
Pepper: No, I can't stand seafood.
Pepper: Guys, it's a joke. It's not a philosophical discussion.
