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 will the 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 for MLP lovers!
10 April 2000 | by harleypassionSee all my reviews

I loved this show...wait...i still LOVE it! I was a kid when i saw it and remembered being so scared of the flooze, getting all worried the ponies may not find any way to stop it. I loved seeing the way the stupid witch sisters argued and all...

I loved the bushwoolies MOST! They're so CUTE!!! I loved the way one said "Coming with you? Oh yeah yeah..good idea.." and when Shady was scolding herself, he would agree with all she said and she got upset and asked if he ever thought for himself, and he replied "Yeah...RUN!"

OK, enough on the characters...this movie is a real classic..so imagine my delight at finding the VCD recently! I had a recorded version of this movie on VHS, but it was old. So when I saw the vcd and such a reasonable price..of course i quickly bought it! Now i can enjoy the memories of my childhood...MY LITTLE PONIES was my favourite cartoon and toy of all time...
