Penny For Your Laughs is the fifth episode of the first season of Littlest Pet Shop.

Overview

After realizing her lack of funny lately, Pepper decides to try insult comedy. At first it goes great but she ends up hurting one of the most sensitive of all the pets! Meanwhile, Blythe befriends the Biskit Twins after she stands up to a bully harassing them.

Plot

Blythe is on her way inside the Littlest Pet Shop when she meets the pets and reveals a package for Pepper. An eager Pepper quickly pulls out her new pudding-filled shoes but when she tries them on and begins to dance around in them, she sees that everybody else would rather play with the box and the ripped-up pieces of newspaper inside. After asking about this and being told that her pudding gags aren't very funny anymore, she begins to mope. It's then Blythe suggests that maybe she should try a new comedy routine from an alternate source of comedy, then takes off for school after she cleans up the pudding.

After considering her words, Pepper tried to find a comedic inspiration when she notices a slobbery dog coming inside. She comments on it, then mentions the man who brought in the dog, and also Mrs. Twombly's off-key whistling. This is enough to make everyone start laughing, other then Penny who finds the comments to be kind of rude. She asks Russell for his opinion, but he claims Pepper wouldn't purposely try to hurt anyones feelings and it is all in good fun.

At school, it's time for gym class and everyone is playing basketball. That is, except for the Biskit twins, who'd rather just stand around and are terrified of the ball. Vi Tannabruzzo starts to harass and pick on the twins for their clumsy playing until an agitated Blythe decides she can't take watching this anymore. She comes over to tell Vi off for acting so meanly and accidentally insults her height, which seems to make her leave. The twins, very happy and affectionate thank Blythe for helping them. She doesn't seem to mind so much, but when they go on to claim her as their new best friend she begins to have her concerns...

Meanwhile, at the pet shop, Pepper is busy making jokes at everybody's expenses and they all seem to find it amusing still. Penny asks Minka about this, but Minka insists she is just taking it all too seriously, which makes Penny a little upset. So she decides to just seperate from the others for a while.

At school, Blythe joins Sue and Youngmee, who are discussing Youngmee's complicated lunch. They question her BFF situation with the twins, but Blythe just thinks they overreacted to her defending them earlier and is sure that by now they're over it. But that seems to be far from the truth when she's handed a gold laminated note from the twins to attend lunch with them. This frustrates her friends after she decides to go and visit them and becomes very impressed by the large, four-course meal.

Back at the Pet Shop, everyone continues to laugh away at Pepper's jokes, but they are slowly becoming aware of how rude they sound. But Pepper doesn't want to stop and she decides to target the sensitive Penny, thinking she would find it funny since she hasn't been laughing nearly as much as them. Zoe tries to warn her against this but she doesn't listen. Penny hesitates realizing Pepper may be targeting her now, but Russell warns Pepper to be gentle with Penny. She goes on with her joke and starts to laugh, but when she sees everyone else glaring at her she turns to see just how upset Penny is.

Russell flat out tells her it's offensive, but Pepper decides to tell another joke instead and is told she went too far, which she doesn't understand until she sees Penny crying. As she stands back, everyone makes attempts to comfort Penny, but it isn't any use and she runs off for some alone time.

Back at school, as Blythe is preparing to leave she sees Sue and Youngmee nearby. She doesn't see why they're upset about lunch with the twins and she claims she only did it to be polite. She makes an attempt to clear things up when a present is suddenly dropped into her hand. She presses the button on the touch screen to see the twins have left her a message. Youngmee and Sue then storm off as Brittany and Whittany grab Blythe and take her shopping while they sing about their new friendship. At first she is uncomfortable but quickly realizes how they managed to manipulate her as she lets out an evil laugh.

At the Pet Shop, everyone keeps up with their attempts to comfort Penny but it isn't working. They notice how bad Pepper feels and she criticizes herself for being so rude like that when it wasn't her intention, and after Minka points out that Pepper didn't do it on purpose, it's enough to give her a great idea!

At the mall, the twins and Blythe are using makeup when the twins reveal they have come up with some special poses for Blythe to practice. They then see a red-haired girl nearby and begin to pick on her, to which Blythe also contributes until she realizes it's Sue!

Back at the Pet Shop, Pepper tries to use comedy to make Penny laugh. It doesn't work though and she starts to imagine things in song.

At the mall, the twins begin to insult Sue, but this makes Blythe realize she did mess up in befriending them and she resigns as their friend from this point on, stating that they wouldn't have true friends and she only liked the stuff compared to the twins themselves. Being friends with two horrible girls who make fun of others isn't worth it. They then leave Blythe once they get all of their items back and Sue approaches while Blythe apologizes for what happened.  

After leaving, Blythe goes to the Pet Shop and finds everyone in a gloomy mood. Pepper admits what happened and now she doesn't know how to fix it, and Blythe admits that a similar thing happened to her today and Pepper just has to apologize. So Pepper does just this and asks Penny to be her friend again. At first, Penny stays quiet but she quickly grabs Pepper in a hug before handing her a gift, a pistachio pudding pie. She has Pepper smell it, then shoves it into her face.

At first Pepper is shocked, but she laughs, and everyone else follows.

Quotes

Blythe: Maybe you need a new shtick.
Pepper: I already have plenty of sticks. Unfortunately, they're filled with pudding.
