  • show Description
  • Based on one of the most beloved toylines of the 1980's, My Little Pony started out as a couple of animated specials and a feature film before finally becoming a cartoon series. Its various incarnations told the adventures of the little ponies and all of their friends as they lived in the beautiful Dream Valley. There were literally dozens of ponies of all different colors and they were divided into Earth ponies, Unicorns, and Pegasus ponies. All were fundamentally magical beings and each had a small picture on her back that reflected her name or personality. The ponies' most cherished friend is Megan, a young girl of about 13 who was brought to Ponyland to help them in their darkest hour. She continued to visit her friends and often served as leader when trouble struck. Eventually, her younger brother Danny (probably 11) and sister Molly (around 9) met the ponies, and the three of them came to stay in Ponyland for extended visits. There were many different beings who lived in Ponyland besides the ponies. Those who were seen most frequently were Spike (a baby dragon), the Moochick (an absent-minded magician), the Bushwoolies (multicolored fur balls who all seemed to act as one) and the Grundles (friendly troll creatures who tunneled underground). They were always willing to lend a hand when a lesson needed to be learned or villains threatened Dream Valley. The show featured original songs and lessons about teamwork, love, kindness, and bravery. The stories began as 15-minute episodes, but eventually they were expanded into multi-part 15-minute episodes. These were shown alongside other cartoons in a half-hour block titled "My Little Pony and Friends" which included The Moon Dreamers and The Potato Head Kids before being given their own half-hour time slot. In 1992 the Disney Channel would create a new series featuring brand-new ponies with a more preteen spin on the storylines called My Little Pony Tales, which is featured in this guide as Season 3. The Disney Channel would continue to show these episodes for many years in syndication.moreless

    • On the My Little Pony DVD boxed set there are a few minutes cut out of the film: After Applejack's apples get turned into applesauce, she shakes herself off and gets applesauce on Glory and Moondancer. There are also a few lines of dialogue between Scorpan and Spike that are cut out that show how much Scorpan looks out for Spike.

    • There is a bit of a goof-up early on in the feature. After Firefly crashes into Applejack and her basket of apples, the screen flashes briefly to three ponies who are laughing. The Pegasus pony of the group, Medly, is actually painted in Firefly's colors.

    • There is a pony in this special that was never made into a toy. She is white with rainbow hair and has the rainbow logo as her symbol she's often seen with Twinkles the cat on her back.

    • The song sung in this episode is "From the Sun".
