I don't like this show in particular, but they do need to stop saying she is a copy...dog. The creators had to be aware of her similarities, because the same company makes both shows. But when Bronies say she is just copying her, they don't realize, MLP: FIM is entirely a copied show of copied characters that started a while ago.
Okay, i'm the only who didn't know where we arguing about? That the bronies think that Zoe looks fimilair with Twilight don't say that bronies are saying that she is a copycat.. Because.. i never see a comment from like "Zoe Trent is a copycat!"
Actually, Littlest Pet Shop came first but the show itself aired after MLP... and I didn't see anyone calling her a copycat, she looks like Twilight and sounds like Rarity but I never saw anyone call her that :/
