@Mike and Mark
Well, I suppose at least two people seem to be in support of the butt-talk. I guess I’ll stick with it!
They really need to work on Dash’s ego, though.
What part do you mean? I didn’t really notice anything wrong with it. Unless you just mean the general size and scale of the party, in which case I would probably disagree with it being about her ego. It’s just a big party that Pinkie seemed to want to throw. Unless I’m missing something obvious.
This is probably just my bias for Dash, but I think she’s been written well this season. She’s very boastful and talks herself up a lot but not quite to the level of it being a major issue that needs to be adressed. Sort of like with Fluttershy’s shyness. Nobody should call Fluttershy out for that. It’s just how her mind works. It’s the same for Dash. A flaw is just an extention of a personality trait, and I’m always happy when I see a show that can portray that well.
Also, yeah, I made sort of a reversal of the “Fluttershy’s shyness should be treated as a flaw, not an excuse to look cute” complaint, but that’s just fan works. The show does it fine.
Hahaha, I covered my bases. Now they’ll never know that I’m actually just bias towards Dash!
I managed to find pics of everything I wanted to say this time! Hooray!
The cakes and Diamond Tiara singing… nice! Surprisingly nice, actually. This is making me feel a little sad that we didn’t get the original smile song where Pinkie spoke to individual ponies like this.
DT has a really good singing voice, too. It’s a shame the voice actress hasn’t had the chance to sing for her before now. “Sure it was pretty good all thanks to Pinkie Pie~”
“Uh, Pinkie… could you maybe not sit on me like that?”
I saw this first time through. Then I asked myself why.
Actually, something I noticed… they say it’s her birthday and anniversary of when she moved to Ponyville, but… wouldn’t that be the same on every birthday? So why were the others so surprised? Unless she meant her one year anniversary. Then again, considering how she only made friends with Pinkie in “Griffon the Bursh Off”, I suppose maybe she really has been living in Ponyville for only a year. Huh… that may shift some headcanons a little.
Also, Cheese Sandwich shouted “FEELS GOUDA!” at one point. That made me laugh.
I guess this is just how they say hello now. Going to be hard to do over the phone.
“Great. Good job, Pinkie. Cherry’s dead now.”
Also, why is that cupcake iced to match the coats of the mane 6? Stop getting ideas, Pinkie.
By the way, didn’t expect them to show a surgery. No blood or anything obviously, but by the way he was sweating it’s pretty clear that it was indeed already in progress and not just about to begin. I very oddly like seeing things like surgery, funerals and even just toilets in this show. Gives a sense of "Yeah, we’re magic and all but we still need to do stuff like cut ponies open sometimes. Not everything is just up to a magic spell.
This is the second time this building has been destroyed. I wonder what it was going to be. An orphanage, probably.
This is the SADDEST possible way to deflate a balloon.
…Well hi there, new sister. Nice to meet you. You should go join Sweetie and Shining Armor in the Suddenly Siblings Club.
Derpy. Derpy, what are you doing? Derpy, I know you’re excited about being back on the show being part of little gags, but pace yourself. I hear people get really upset when cute things like birds stick their heads in those.
Also, Rarity, I know you like hitting on stallions, but pace yourself. Before long we’ll be getting episodes all about this sort of thing and all the bronies will get upset about it. Save your strength.
I loved the little “Hm?” noise Fluttershy made here. Is that the sort of thing they would put in the script or is it just the natural way Andrea read that line?
Pinkie! STOP GETTING IDEAS!
So, do you think this really was a nod to Cupcakes? Because I know it would still make sense if Cupcakes was never written, but then again, that doesn’t disprove it seeing as all good references should make sense in the context of the story. And how much closer to a cupcakes reference can they get than Pinkie holding a rainbow cupcake shaped like RD? I really am starting to think that it isn’t the most unlikely thing in the world…
Oh hey, Cherry isn’t dead. I don’t know if that’s more or less funny than if she had vanished for the rest of the episode.
Also, just as a general note, this was my favorite song in the episode. It really felt like a Weird Al Polka Medley to the point where I even wondered if they actually were taken from somewhere else. But no, just the Smile song (it was really cool to hear Al sing the Smile song) and Dale Dale Dale (and it was really cool to hear Pinkie sing in a different language).
…Uh, Derpy? You okay? What are you doing with that stuffed animal? Why are you staring at Boneless?
Guys, I think we broke Derpy.
Gummy on the other hand looks great.
Aww, Dash looks so sad trapped under there. “Well, I guess this is my life now.”
Also, does anyone else find it funny that the eye-rainbows thing was triggered by Dash this time rather than just a light reflection? Because I do.
“Uh… Dashie? Could you maybe not rub my nose like that?”
Oh hey! Filly background ponies! Flitter, Cloudchaser, Lyra (hanging out with Bon Bon), Bon Bon (who looks like Twist for some reason), Derpy (with Dinky’s mane style) and Colgate (with braces!)
“Uh, background pony? Could you maybe not boost me up like that?”
YOU AGAIN! Damn these eagles! They always come when you least expect them to!
And as a final note, can I mention how much the last few minutes felt like a season finale? Big night party, upbeat song where they all see off the new pony at the end like the season 2 finale, different credit song like the season 3 finale? I can’t be the only one who felt like that.
Overall a really fun episode. Worthy of containing the Weirdest of Als, if I do say so myself.
Always with the page gets on these stupid posts…
