Heidi Klum: Supermodel. Actress. Reality show host. Producer. Entrepreneur. Designer. Celebrity mom. And yodeler?

Parents and kids alike will see a new side to Klum when she lends her distinctive voice to the two-part finale for season three of the animated preschool favorite, Littlest Pet Shop, airing Saturday, March 7 at noon and 12:30 PM ET (check local listings) on Discovery Family (formerly The Hub network).

Klum will star as Lady Yodely of the Heidi, a new friend of the show's main character, Blythe. According to a press release, Lady Yodely is, "a high-energy day camper named Lady Yodely of the Heidi, who has a strong passion for yodeling."

Klum said she is actually quite similar to Lady Yodely, (who is called "Heidi" by her animated on-screen friends), and enjoyed the entire experience, from getting to exercise her vocal talents to delivering a surprise performance.

“I was really excited to be asked to voice one of the little animals on Littlest Pet Shop,” Klum said. “My kids and I are all excited to watch this episode!”

According to the press release, in the two-part finale, Lady Yodely of the Heidi just happens to be the canine companion of Jason, the lead singer of the world-famous band The Soul Patches. The pup plays a pivotal role in helping Blythe convince the band to perform at her Pet Fest, a fundraising event for the Endangered Animals Fund that celebrates the treasured relationships of people and their pets.

Littlest Pet Shop, based on the popular toys and an earlier television series that debuted in 1995, follows Blythe Baxter, a teenager who lives with her father, Roger Baxter, in a city apartment above the Littlest Pet Shop, a day-camp for all types of pets. She discovers she can talk to the animals and joins them on fantastical adventures filled with music.

The show, while it primarily entertains, includes strong messages about friendship, standing up for others, being kind, having fun, and doing the right thing. Preschoolers will enjoy watching the assortment of animals that include dogs and cats, but skunks, pandas, geckos, monkeys, and more.

Blythe is voiced by Ashleigh Ball, who also does the voices for Rainbow Dash and Apple Jack on another Discovery Family animated show, My Little Pony Friendship is Magic
