Ponies. Vampires. Weird little films no one remembers. Much snark.
 

My Little Pony: The Revolt of Paradise Estate (S01E45-46)

by bat 24 July 2019
My Little Pony (Gen 1)

The Ponies are terrible slobs and fail to do any upkeep or property improvement on their vast land holdings, so Paradise Estate (and its contents) rise up again their equine oppressors. There’s some kind of magic paint involved and yet another character who wants to steal the Ponies’ home. Wash, rinse, repeat.

My Little Pony (Gen 1)

bat recaps My Little Pony: Baby, It’s Cold Outside (S01E41-42) and WINTER IS HERE, but I fear we may have oversold the story using that quote.

My Little Pony: The Would Be Dragonslayer (S01E40)

My Little Pony (Gen 1)

After nearly being slaughtered by a wannabe knight, Megan and the Ponies help squire Alonzo to perform a good deed. If only they had a dictionary handy to look up the definition of “good”.

My Little Pony: Woe is Me – Parts 1-2 (S01E36-37)

My Little Pony (Gen 1)

bat suffers through another episode of misery featuring Woebegone, whom the Ponies try and save because the Ponies are a cult of positivity. Emphasis on the cult part.

My Little Pony (Gen 1)

bat recaps My Little Pony: The Magic Coins – Parts 1-2 (S01E31-32) wherein magic has consequences (for once) but only where the plot says so.

My Little Pony: Little Piece of Magic (S01E30)

My Little Pony (Gen 1)

bat recaps My Little Pony: Little Piece of Magic (S01E30), wherein Several Baby Ponies, who are only identified as such by their smaller statures and the fact they cannot speak proper grammatical English, spend the afternoon playing imagination games. Or are they really just some metaphorical acid trip?

My Little Pony: The Return of Tambelon – Parts 1-2 (S01E26-27)

My Little Pony (Gen 1)

bat recaps the first two parts of The Return of Tambelon, which turns out to be some magical castle town that exists in liminal space and is home to a villainous goat. Go figure.

My Little Pony: Bright Lights – Parts 1-2 (S01E21-22)

My Little Pony (Gen 1)

bat recaps My Little Pony: Bright Lights Parts 1-2, where a trio of Baby Ponies somehow get themselves backstage to hang out with a shifty rock star, whose boss steals their shadows. A none-too-subtle exploration of the abuses and crimes in the music industry. Except for the fact it’s a childrens cartoon from 1986 and an evil wizard is behind it all, this could be a life lesson for 2018.
