DVD Review: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic – Keys of Friendship



My daughter insists I’m a Brony since I will sit with her and watch My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Am I? I haven’t bought any adult size Fluttershy t-shirts or a pair of Rainbow Dash Crocs. I can’t be considered a Super Brony. However I can tell the ponies apart. The show can be rather catchy and is a fun father-daughter bonding time. We do disagree over my favorite Pony since she insists it’s Rarity. I won’t tell her my real choice. Lately we’ve been enjoying My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic – Keys of Friendship. It’s five episodes from the fourth season that introduce a new breed for friends and a big pony city.

“Rarity Takes Manehattan” sends her and friends to the big city for a fashion show. Can there be so much glamour on one island? “Pinkie Apple Pie” ponders if Pinkie is related to Applejack. It’s almost like an episode of Maury. “It Ain’t Easy Being Breezies” features creatures that are a magical mix of ponies and butterflies. My daughter merely summed them up with “I want one.” “Twilight’s Kingdom” is a two part episode that deals with Princess Twilight Sparkle grappling with her royal position. Things get more complicated when a new villain is discovered. It’s emotional angst mixed with minor scares. Here’s Josie’s review of the DVD.

The video is 1.78:1 anamorphic. The transfers bring out the beauty in the pony designs. The audio is 5.1 Dolby Digital Stereo. The sound is at the right level for kids to sing with the musical numbers. The episodes are Closed Captioned.

Sing-Along with lyrics is provided for “Generosity.”

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic – Keys of Friendship is another collection that has been on repeat for a while thanks to my daughter. They better put out Breezies toys soon.

Shout! Factory present My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic – Keys of Friendship. Starring: Rainbow Dash, Rarity and Princes Twilight Sparkle. Released: July 29, 2014.
