Is this basically another image saying your childhood enhanced itself?
I actually feel the need to defend Pinkie’s behaviour in this episode, if only because it seems to be the only thing in it that anyone talks about, despite the episode itself being – you know? – fantastic.
Sonic hasn’t had the best history with barrels, has he?
So Twilight manages to wipe the sauce off her cheeks with the same burger that got her cheeks covered in sauce in the first place.
Do things work like that?
… Why would that be a problem?
Man, Toy Story 4 looks intense!
And thus the countdown to the Epic Pony War Some Time in the Distant Future began.
Gender? Male. Very male.
I get the feeling the writers would make an episode dealing with this this issue if they were allowed to.
I think the point was to make Fluttershy cry anyway. It just happened to be Pinkie Pie that was used as the catalyst. And since she had been arguably flanderized before this point and Amy Keating Rogers also wrote ‘Pinkie Pride’ which was supposed to have fixed that problem, Pinkie’s behaviour in ‘Filli Vanilli’ made a bigger impact on some fans than it should have.
Yeah, I do wish people would discuss what they thought about the episode itself rather than just Pinkie’s role in it. I think everything that’s going to be said about her has already been said many times over.
Well somebody has to bring attention to it – that spelling is very odd.
I have to disagree, I thought the episode was great. It may not have been high on laughs but it was high on emotions – genuine emotions which I’ve felt before. As for the Pinkie stuff, well that’s its own discussion entirely.
Gotta Go Wrong!

Looks like Sonic has a bit of Pete going on
I did see someone make the point that the mane six have all been placed into most of the episodes of this season thus far, whether they need to be or not, meaning Pinkie has had more screentime this season to display those traits. But problems only seems to happen when Pinkie isn’t the focus of an episode. I think that future episodes about her wont have these problems like “Pinkie Pride”; it’s how she acts as a side character that people have issues with, although she’s yet to detract from a story she’s not part of and instead its just little comic relief gags that are rubbing fans the wrong way.
I would like to point out though that as over-the-top as Pinkie was in “Filli Vanilli”, she was still as concerned for Fluttershy as the rest of her friends towards the end even if she wasn’t able to express and word it properly so she wasn’t totally inconsiderate. AKR’s tweet that Pinkie had no filter in the episode, regardless of whether or not it excuses her behaviour in anyone’s eyes, also suggests the writers are aware of this on some level. I think that, at worst, it’s just a bit of a rough patch. It’s nothing too serious at the moment, and a lot of the time the show’s writer have proved that they can learn from their mistakes so I don’t see all doom and gloom ahead for Pinkie’s character.
Yeah, “Jellyfishing” – that’s the one I was thinking of… I still don’t understand
So Flutterguy was Tigatron
Now she’s Demolisher
Here, in case you aren’t sad enough yet
I immediately connected with Fluttershy in this episode. I’ve also done things without realising others were watching or listening – not singing. but making a joke or putting on a funny voice for a moment or something like that which works just the same. I realise that nobody really sees any of it as a cause to make fun of me, far from it, but it can still be embarrassing even when it shouldn’t. I know EXACTLY how that feels! Amy Keating Rogers was spot on with a lot of emotions here. This is definitely the episode which I’ve related to the most. Aside from the fact that it was about singing, I could practically see myself in this episode :)

Let’s not forget the heart-wrenching soundtrack ;_;
