Episode 42: Shanghai Hijinks-Casual Racism Station

published on

All aboard for today's episode of the Littlest PetCast. Today's stop is at the episode "Shanghai Hi-Jinks", with story by Julie McNally-Cahill, Tim Cahill, and Tom Minton, teleplay by Tom Minton, and directed by Dallas Parker. In this episode, Mrs. Twombly is being honored at a ceremony in Shanghai, but initially declines the invitation. However, Blythe not only convinces her to go, but to bring her, Roger, and the pets along. Penny wants to stop by to visit her family in the Wildlife Sanctuary. However, when her family invites her to a family dinner at the same time as Mrs. Twombly, she gets conflicted.

Why did they not go all out with the name of the episode? What is the line between silliness I can accept, and silliness I can't accept? Has Roger achieved "Peak Dad"? How much of an episode can a rap battle save? Is this the most casually racist episode of the show we've seen so far? Did this train metaphor go off the rails?
