Released some years back, Disney’s Palace Pets were conceived as an intended spinoff to the popular Disney Princess franchise, taking on more of a cute animal approach not unlike Hasbro’s My Little Pony or Littlest Pet Shop toy lines. Each of the Palace Pets were created in the likeness of the various Disney Princesses we all know and love. And the product line has grown tremendously though out the years among young fans.
By launching a Disney Palace Pets app and with the production of the Whisker Haven Tales with the Palace Pets animated series through a collaboration of Ghostbot Studios and Disney Publishing, the storyline developed even more solid grounding. So was established a well-versed plot in which Disney’s Palace Pets rule over an all-animal kingdom known as Whisker Haven with the help and guidance of a hummingbird fairy known as Ms. Featherbon.
In dutifully overseeing all of their critter citizens, known as “critizens,” the Palace Pets are loyal, loving, devoted, and kind. But just who exactly are the individual Palace Pets? Here we are providing a Who’s Who of sorts, classified in order by each Disney Princess alias.
