“My Little Pony and Friends” started
out with three movies back in the early 80’s.The first one was called
“Firefly’s Adventure” and was sold with the pony, Firefly.
The story told of eight or more little ponies
who lived in a place called DreamValley.
One day, the ponies were just either lounging around or flying around, in Firefly and Medley’s case, when all
of a sudden n evil villan named Tirac, came and kidnapped Ember, a baby pony
and Cotton Candy, an earth adult pony.Tirac took them to castle where he held them prisoner.
Not sure what to do, but knowing she had to do something, Firefly takes off in search of someone to help her, despite
Medley’s pleas that it’s too dangerous.She flies over the Rainbow
and meets a young girl about the age of ten or eleven, named Megan. Megan is grooming her pony, TJ and getting him ready for
the next day’s ride.After Firefly introduces herself, she tells her new
friend what’s going on and insists Megan return with her to see what she can do.Megan doubts herself and is not sure what she can do to help, but Firefly believes in Megan wholeheartedly. She gets
her confidence back
up and before they know it, they’re back
in DreamValley and it’s time for
the showdown.They go to the Moochick who gives them a necklace called the Rainbow
of Light.And then it’s off to MidnightCastle to rescue their friends.During
that trip, Megan meets the sea ponies after she dives into the lake after Apple Jack, an accident prone earth pony who falls
hrough the rickidy old bridge leading to
castle.After that, the group keeps going and manages to not only find MidnightCastle, but save Ember, Cotton Candy
and a little baby dargon named Spike, who moves into DreamCastle
with the little ponies.After everything is put right again, Firefly flies Megan
back home, but she has a feeling her new friend will be returning to Ponyland soon.
The next “My Little Pony” or MLP
movie was called “Escape from Catrina”.This one was a little shorter
than “Firefly’s Adventure”, which was two parts long.In “Escape
from Catrina”, the ponies are getting ready for Megan’s second visit to Ponyland.They are having a costume ball in her honor.Sundance, a clumsy earth
pony wants to help, but every time she tries, she does something wrong.Finally,
everything is set and Skydancer, a Pegasus, arrives with Megan on her back.
The most excited ponies of all to meet the ponies fast becoming best Human friend are the new babies. Baby Moondancer,
Baby Cotton Candy, Baby Surprise, and Baby Glory.
Megan falls in love with Baby Cotton Candy and Baby Glory instantly. She loves all the baby ponies, but they are her
favorites it seems.In the middle of the excitement over Megan’s arrival,
Posey insists that the baby ponies must be wel rested in order to attend the costume ball. The
baby ponies agree, but grumble about it. Megan assures Posey she’s got it under control and indeed uses reverse psychology
to get the baby ponies to take their nap. She sings a song with them and lets them play for awhile until they tire themselves
out.After the baby ponies are asleep, Megan goes to help out with the last minute
party plans. SHE meets Sundance and helps her overcome her clumsy faults.
But when the party finally is going to happen, Baby Moondancer is kidnapped by a witch named Catrina.She wants the little ponies for her slaves to create her witch weed potion and since the bushwoolies escaped,
Catrina doesn’t’ have anyone else to make the potion for her.
Megan and the ponies, with the help of the Rainbow of Light, save Baby Moondancer and they are finally able to have
The next and final movie that launched the
TV Series was called “My Little Pony:The Movie”.And I have to say, this one is my ULTIMATE favorite of all!!
The little ponies are preparing for their annual spring festival and they are anxiously awaiting for Megan to come
and join in the springtime fun.
But if the witch, Hydia, has her way, there won’t be any spring festival to enjoy.Hydia wants to show her daughters, Reeka and Draggle how to be evil.In doing so, Hydia makes this clay stuff called smooze to destroy the little ponies’ festival.When Gusty gets smoozed, she’s not too nice and is especially hard on Fizzy, since Gusty was always
hard on her.
After Magic Star, an earth
pony, can’t get the smooze off of Gusty using water, Wind Whistler and North Star suggest to go ask Megan for help.Upon arriving at Megan’s house, the two pegasi are introduced to Megan’s
six year old sister, Molly and their annoying brother, ten year old Danny.Molly
Megan’s old pony, TJ.After Molly successfully jumps TJ over a bail of hay with Megan snapping a picture proudly, Wind Whistler
explains the problem to Megan who readily agrees to help and lend a hand, including the Rainbow of Light.
Naturally, Molly wants to come too.And Danny can’t be left alone,
so Megan grudgingly brings him too.She doesn’t’ mind bringing Molly
because the two are really close, but Danny is a different story.In any case,
once the three children and the two pegasi return to Ponyland, the rest of the little ponies meet Megan’s siblings and
Fizzy takes an instant liking to Molly and the two become close friends fast.Molly
teams up with Fizzy through the whole movie and won’t stand to see any harm come to her.Fizzy does the same for Molly.Megan gets in a few scrapes herself, but
Wind Whistler is
always there to save the day.
By this time, the smooze has completely covered DreamCastle
and eaten up the Rainbow of Light. Everyone is beginning to lose hope, but Megan refuses to do the same thing.Fizzy is the only one besides Megan and her siblings and Wind Whistler, who is thinking positively at this
Megan restores everyone’s faith by singing a song called “There’s Always Another Rainbow”.(This is My favorite MLP song ever! It’s also the motto I live by.)After Megan is done singing, she takes a trip to see the Moochick, along with Fizzy and Wind Whistler.
After they explain the prroblem to the Moochick, he suggests different homes for them and finally strikes gold when he produces
Paradise Estate.He then tells Megan and the little ponies
to go and seek the help of the Flutter ponies who live in FlutterValley.They are the only ones who can stop the smooze.So Megan, Molly, Fizzy, Wind Whistler, Magic Star, and Danny go off in search of the Flutter ponies.They find them, only to discover that the Queen, Rosedust isn’t interested
in helping them at
all. It’s only after Megan tells her
that it’s “everybody’s fight”, does Rosedust realize how narrow minded she was being and agrees to
After everything is put back to normal, Megan gives the Rainbow of Light to Baby Lickety-Split and leaves with her
siblings to return home over
After the movie, “My Little Pony and Friends” debuted in the year 1986.It followed the same adventures of the little ponies and their Human
friends, Megan, Molly and their brother Danny.Along with the children and the litel ponies, there was a dragon named Spike, and
of course the Moochick.
were many good lessons in the show, most of them taught by the ponies and Megan.They
taught friendship, tolerance and most of all kindness and
remember to always look twice at what’s
on the inside before judging anyone.
