The better of the two My Little Pony TV specials
24 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Although I did like Escape from Catrina, I found Rescue at Midnight Castle(aka My Little Pony or Firefly's Adventure) the better of the two. Most of the voice acting is great, especially that of Tirak, though I did prefer Applejack's voice later on. Charles Adler was good, but Spike was more adorable in later incarnations also. However, the animation is absolutely great, of the four My Little Pony movies/specials I've re-visited so far(the 1986 original movie, Escape from Catrina, End of Flutter Valley and this) this had the best animation, with beautiful colours to start with and the darker moments equally impressive. The songs are tuneful especially Megan and Firefly's, the writing is suspenseful and never going overboard with the schmaltz and cheesy slapstick and the story is always engaging with a dark tone. The characters are all likable, with Megan and Tirak(not the most interesting My Little Pony villain but the most threatening) the best and the ponies and sea-ponies both well-drawn and adorable. All in all, very good. 8/10 Bethany Cox
