Dove recaps My Little Pony: The Quest of the Princess Ponies (S02E03-4) wherein not a lot happens, but a Bushwoolie dies. Nobody cares. Except me. I care.

My Little Pony (Gen 1)

The Princess Ponies are introduced into the cartoon because Hasbro had merch to sell. There’s talking lava monsters and ice orcs and MAGIC GOES CRAZY, Y’ALL! bat still has so many questions.

My Little Pony (Gen 1)

Dove recaps My Little Pony: Through the Door (S01E47-48) wherein fairy tale characters visit Ponyland, and the baby ponies are taught the Dance of the Seven Veils. That’s not hyperbole. That is literally what happens.

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)

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 (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: 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 3-4 (S01E23-24)

by Dove 8 January 2019
My Little Pony (Gen 1)

Dove recaps My Little Pony: Bright Lights – Parts 3-4 (S01E23-24) and gets completely sidetracked by the constant rotation of ponies on this quest and the unsettling metaphor it may or may not be.

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.
