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}

The Ultimate Excursion in 80's cutesy cartoons
7 December 1999 | by filmbuff-36See all my reviews

By far one of the most sickeningly cute movies of all time. I grew up as a child of the 80's so naturally this was just one of the such films I was subject to as a child. Looking back after all these years, I was surprised to see the all star cast that made up the ensemble.

Basically the story involves a group of ponies who have to fight off three witches plans to flood their valley with something called a Smooze. I don't know what it all means, but I remember that my sister made me sit through this one as well as all the Care Bear movies.

If you've never even heard of "My Little Pony", then don't even try to watch this film. You had to actually experience it when it first came out to understand everyone's fascination with it. But still, I'll give it 6 stars since at least there's nothing truly wrong with it and the fact that it's marginally better then all the crap it spawned.
