My Little Pony and Friends

Show Summary

My Little Pony 'n Friends was a showcase for the popular My Little Pony series, which began life as a handful of animated specials that eventually spawned a fondly remembered movie. In this incarnation, the Little Ponies' adventures where divided into 15-minute segments and paired off with 15-minute episodes from a rotating block of other series – the Friends in the title. The other series that filled out the half-hour were Glo Friends, Potato Head Kids, and Moondreamers. Each of these shows had their own nifty toyline. My Little Pony revolved around the magic ponies whose peaceful existence in Dream Valley was threatened by nasty (but not scary) villains. These earthling, unicorn, and pegasus ponies came in every conceivable color and had small pictures on their backs that indicated their names or personalities. Living and learning with them in Ponyland were three humans (siblings Megan, Danny, and Molly), a spunky baby dragon (Spike), a forgetful magician (the Moochick) and his faithful rabbit, the Bushwoolies, and the Grundles. Songs were sung and new friends were made as the ponies and their allies defended their happy home. See Season 1 and Season 2 as well as the Others section for the specials. Glo Friends told the story of tiny glow-in-the-dark bugs and animals who lived in a part of the forest called Glo Land. The magical Moon Drops that made them glow (the source of their power to heal nature) rained down at night and had to be brought to the safety of Moon Drop Pond. Glo Worm, Bashful Bug, Slugger Bug, Glo Cricket, and the other Glo Friends continually evaded the Moligans, a family of mole creatures led by Starnose who wanted extra light and diggers to work in their mines. Plenty of singing took place as the Glo Friends tried to prevent the Moligans from finding their home and destroying the forest. See Season 3. Potato Head Kids depicted the misadventures of the small group of Potato Head Kids who were looked after by Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head. Spud, Spike, Dimples, Smarty Pants, and all their friends rallied themselves with their trademark cheer of "Potato!!!" before heading off on their next adventure. These were very creative little spuds who easily got into trouble but were most often able to get themselves out of it again. These were the only potato people in a world full of humans, but they were friendly bunch and no one really said anything about it. See Season 4. Moondreamers were tiny glowing pixies that lived with their friends in Starry Up and looked after the dream world. A kid named Bucky, who rode on a magic comet, brought Dream Crystals to the Moondreamers. The Dream Crystals were used to power the Dream Machine that generated pleasant dreams for people on Earth. Covered black holes throughout Starry Up led to Monstrous Middle, where the evil Scowlene and her Sleep Creeps lurked. Their goal was to get to the Dream Machine and turn good dreams into nightmares – it was up to the Moondreamers, led by their ruler Crystal Starr, to see that this never happened.

  • a nostalgic reminder of childhood. Not written horribly well but enjoyable none the less. Keeping my fingers crossed for a season 2 release since the season 1 is already available.

    I am also hopeing for a release of my little pony tales on to dvd that would be enjoyable as well.
