I admit it, I’m a Brony and I enjoy watching My Little Pony with or without the kids. When I received the opportunity to review the latest compilation of My Little Pony episodes in the form of My Little Pony – Friendship is Magic: Spooktacular Pony Tales I was excited to do so. So we received a copy of the DVD to watch and review. While it may be a little too early for Halloween it was not too early to watch these spooky episodes.
When the kids saw the box they wanted to watch the DVD right away. My daughter was particularly excited even though things tend to frighten her, even spooky episodes of My Little Pony. The comic book sort of freaked her out once but I said sure and we gave it a try. She did great watching all of the episodes and wasn’t scared once. She even corrected me when I showed her the mini poster from inside the DVD box. I said, “Are you sure you aren’t going to be scared by… NIGHTMARE MOON!” She told me I was being silly and that was Princess Luna and I shouldn’t feel scared about her. Smart kid.
Each episode was full of fun antics and smart, funny dialog between the big six ponies. There were six episodes on the DVD and also a special Sing-Along song from the episode titled Bats. That one was funny about a little magic backfiring and catching poor Fluttershy and transforming her.
There is more about the DVD below in the Press Release.
