Star Catcher:Maybe it's not the glow of the special candy cane that brings Santa to Ponyville every year. But the glow of everyone's love and concern for each other. After all, isn't that the true meaning of Christmas?See more »

Review - My Little Pony: A Very Minty Christmas (2005), 3 March 2015
Author: Sploich from United States

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.
