Second Week of Pony #1

28 Mar

Have still not gotten through the entire show so far. Haven’t seen the new episode(s?) yet either. Getting into season five. The lack of deadline, as usual, has slowed down my progress. Instead of reviews this week is going to be the lists I’ve made watching the show of everything canon-worthy I noticed while watching. One day per season. I will also be putting the whole thing in a spreadsheet to classify ponies/locations/events sort of thing. For my own uses but I’ll happily make it public if anyone out there would like to see it as well.

Here are my canon notes from my rewatch of season one. I do not separate them via episode, but do have them more or less in order that the show presents them. Especially for the early stuff I more or less just put the name down for it it, but as I get into the series I tended to be a little more detailed. I also seem to have not written any notes for the episode the Ticket Master. I also had to make judgments on what to include, so I sometimes skipped fairly normal things and sometimes put normal things down, depending on how I was feeling whenever something ‘real world’ shows up in cartoon pony land.

Spike message fire
Royal Sisters
Elements of Harmony
Pegasus ponies
Earth ponies
Unicorn ponies
Predictions and Prophecies book
Luna / Nightmare Noon was not remembered by most ponies, even to the point of not knowing the connection between the two.
Dragon (Spike is baby dragon, so not full grown)
Summer Sun Celebration
Pegasus ponies can bust clouds
Manticore (manticores can purr)
Disbelieving in illusion spells dispels them
Sea serpents (can talk and are sapient and can be vain)
Grand Galloping Gala (biggest social event each year, in Canterlot)
Rainbow Dash shows more control over clouds
Dragons can eat anything (conjecture, but example shown in this episode is terrible muffins that give ponies literal food poisoning and earlier he mentions wanting to eat gemstones)
Cows can speak, but perhaps not all that smart
Gryphons (rare, but known.)
Junior Speedster Flight Camp
Flying contraptions (Pinkie’s pedal powered flying machine)
Fluttershy 1 year older than Pinkie

Cloudsdale is lots of separate clouds
Jackhammer used on clouds
Weather factory
