My Little Pony: Equestria Girls hits You Tube today. The new shorts series will reveal 45 new episodes over at the Hasbro You Tube channel every Friday starting today. The series follows the characters we all know and love, including Rainbow Dash, Pinky Pie, Apple Jack, Rarity, Fluttershy, Twlight Sparkle, and Sunset Shimmer. They navigate all sorts of problems high-schoolers face-math tests, waiting in line for the hottest new video games, stopping jewel thieves, creating fashion window displays.
I got to watch a bunch of these with my daughter, and we both really enjoyed them. She laughed her butt off at everything Pinky Pie did or said, while I appreciated some of the jokes that are there to amuse the adults watching as well. There was one short in particular where the gang goes on a field-trip to a museum and the museum worker reminded me of Daria. Just absolute great stuff there.
A lot of the greatness is with the voice cast. The same cast from the shorts and such all reprise their roles here: Tara Strong, Ashleigh Bell, Tabitha St. Germain, Andrea Libman, Rebecca Shoichet, Kazumi Evans, and others all do wonders together. The amount of familiarity and comfort they feel with each other is evident right from the start. Fans love this cast and with good reason.
The shorts themselves hold true to the other MLP universe of shows and films. Everything is top notch, bright, and full of color. Say what you will about Pony culture, but the shows emphasis on friendship and togetherness while being your best self is something I am glad my kid is able to see and this show helps her grasp that.
There will also be a line of dolls available this month in support of the show.
