My Little Pony: The Movie

Synopsis of Movie

All is not well in Ponyland. Sure, the ponies themselves are as cute as ever, their multicolored manes flowing silkily in the breeze, but there’s an ill wind blowing in. A witchy wind. And it’ll take more than pony pluck to save the day.

DEG’s My Little Pony: The Movie was based on the popular cartoon series, itself based on the Hasbro toy line. Designed to appeal to young girls, the ponies were a smash hit in both plastic and animated form, and a full-length feature seemed like the next logical step.

Like the animated series, My Little Pony: The Movie takes place in the magical realm of Ponyland, home of Gusty, Whistler, Fizzy and several other adorable flying ponies. Trouble comes when evil witch Hydia and her two daughters, Draggle and Reeka, form an evil plot to flood Ponyland.

While the other ponies flee to regroup, spoiled Lickety-Split gets trapped in a cave with the troll-like Grundles. Thankfully, the Grundle King isn’t a bad sort, and he helps Lickety-Split escape. With some advice from the wise Moochick and a little help from the tiny Bushwoolies, the ponies band together to save Ponyland from the trio of crones and the scary Smooze.

My Little Pony: The Movie boasted an impressive voice cast, including Cloris Leachman, Madeline Kahn, Rhea Perlman, Danny DeVito and Tony Randall. The movie wasn’t any more than it pretended to be—a happy fantasy for the wee ones (especially the female wee ones)—but it did the job, enchanting fans and winning new ones. And all was well again in Ponyand.
