Did You Know?


This is the first episode to feature Pinkie Pie's popular alter Ego Pinkamena. Although basically just Pinkie with her hair down and crazier than usual, most Bronies and fans like to think of her as a whole different personality to Pinkie. She would not appear again until the Season 3 season finale. See more »


Spike: Anything else I can do for you, most beautiful one?
Rarity: [sniffs and shudders] Hmm... perhaps you could take a bath. How do I put this delicately? You smell like a rotten apple core that's been wrapped in moldy hay, and dipped in dragon perspiration.

Party of fun
21 October 2019 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Season 1 was not a perfect or consistent season for 'My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic', a vast majority of the episodes were very good to brilliant (with "Sonic Rainboom" and "The Cutie Mark Chronicles" being especially good). But there were five or so disappointments with two especially doing very little for me ("Over a Barrel" and "Owl's Well that Ends Well"). Mostly though it was very solid, though did by some bit prefer the first half over the second.

"Party of One" in my view, and many other fans it seems, is a Season 1, and possibly even a 'My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic', high point. A much needed antidote after being so let down by "Owl's Well that Ends Well" that is one of the episodes of the show that leaves a bitter aftertaste in the mouth that still hasn't completely washed away. This however was an episode that has more than enough to keeps fans laughing, crying, always intrigued and sometimes scared. On a slightly, temporary irrelevant side note, the support for my reviews (have absolutely no involvement whatsoever here and that is the honest truth) has been much appreciated and so unexpected (especially for 'My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic', which is a very popular show and its individual episodes get a lot of discussion daily), being a very acquired taste reviewer. Also would request for the person who has caused me a lot of distress for a while down to the serial, excessive down-voting to read my profile to see how much it has affected me, last week especially and take it on board.

Maybe Pinkie Pie's decision making regarding the inviting was a little on the rushed side, but that was nowhere near enough to bring down "Party of One" even by a smidge. The animation is full of colours that really come alive and rich background detail, a good example of flash animation done well. The imaginery friends party sequence is particularly vivid. The music is a good fit with the action and there is no trouble with remembering the theme song.

The writing treats the viewer with respect, not being too simplistic for adults or too complicated for children, instead achieving the right balance. The message doesn't feel shoehorned or too heavily handled, and is a relatable one. The story does not have a single dull stretch, with the journey into Pinkie Pie's mind being the highlight, that was unsettling stuff and sees a side to Pinkie Pie not seen before.

Have no problem with the characters, they are still well defined and individual in personality while never too cute, and their chemistry and interaction (a huge part of the show's appeal) has wit and pathos. Pinkie Pie is so much more than comic relief here and is never cloying, she is funny and never annoying while the more insane trait is a bit of a shock purposefully and isn't overplayed. The voice actors clearly had a lot of fun in this particular episode, with Andrea Libman having a particular ball.

Overall, brilliant. 10/10
