Minty accidentally breaks the 'Here Comes Christmas Candy Cane', which apparently guides Santa Claus to Ponyville. To try to make up for doing this, Minty gives each pony one of her socks (she hangs them like stockings on the other ponies' fireplaces). When Pinkie Pie finds out what Minty has done, Minty states that the sock giving is a bad idea, and then decides she should go to the North Pole herself to set things right. Minty is terrible at balloon flying, so the chase is on to save her in the process of saving Christmas. Written by Anonymous

Review - My Little Pony: A Very Minty Christmas (2005)
3 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a sucker for sweetness, but I'm also a slave to substance, so children's videos like these are a dangerous minefield of disappointment. Luckily for me, My Little Pony: A Very Minty Christmas has at a good portion of the fun and the heart you expect from a Christmas special. While it may not be the most memorable or emotional, it at least tries to be on that level.

Christmas time is just around the corner and the ponies are all excited for Santa to visit. While trying to make sure everything is perfect, Minty (Tabitha St. Germain) accidentally breaks the Here Comes Christmas Candy Cane, without which Santa will be unable to find Ponyville. Now she has to set things right so her friends can have a merry Christmas.

At first I wasn't sure what to think of Minty. When she's introduced, she's won't shut up, and it was starting to get on my nerves. But as the story went on I grew to find her charming and even adorable. She's scatterbrained and a little clumsy, but she's not stupid and she knows when to take things seriously. For example, when she realizes she needs to do something to make up for her mistake, the first idea she has is to give away her most valuable possessions as presents to her friends. I admire that kind of generosity and selflessness in a protagonist, not to mention a role model for kids.

This movie stands out compared to most other G3 videos by actually having a complete story with conflict and even a little bit of peril. I genuinely wanted to see Minty save Christmas, and there's a couple curve balls thrown in to make you question if she'll be able to do so. It's disappointing that such basic concepts of storytelling are so hard to come by in these straight-to-video releases. Just having those puts this above some of Disney's worst sequels.

If you have a child, especially one who is into the G4 (the current) My Little Pony series, this would be a great special to bring out next Christmas. I don't know if kids find the drastic difference in art style and characters confusing, but they'll probably find it enjoyable regardless. It's simple, innocent fun that keeps you engaged and entertained.
