Storyline

At Dream Castle, the Little Ponies are preparing a festival to celebrate the first day of Spring. From the Volcano of Gloom, the evil witch Hydia watches the event via her cauldron and, disgusted by the frivolity, tells her daughters that they must ruin it. Hydia's daughters, Draggle and Reeka, are inexperienced at causing mischief and fail utterly at ruining the festival. They return to the Volcano of Gloom in disgrace, where Witch Hydia presents a better plan - they'll make Smooze. The sisters collect a series of disgusting ingredients, but neglect to obtain the Phlume, the prospect of which terrifies them. The spell seems to work regardless, creating a pool of sentient purple lava that gleefully buries Ponyland. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

A classic...
17 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was one of my favorites when I was about 6. I was OBSESSED with My Little Pony at that age. I had my share of ponies, of course, and I had to watch this movie every single day. I drove my family and everyone crazy with it. Then, as with all the others, I grew up...

Fast forward 19 years. I am now 25, and I recently re-discovered this movie and bought it for my friend's 2-year old daughter. I am now realizing what I put everyone else through, and my friend now absolutely hates me for bringing this movie into their home, because all this kid ever wants to watch is her "pony movie." I just think it is amazing how this movie can capture the attention of today's generation as well as ours. It is an awesome children's movie, with enough songs and action to keep any 2-7 year old busy. I am realizing now just why I loved this movie so much as a kid.
