I turned on captions to see if Hasbro had someone type all the lines from G3 because that would be the perfect job for me since I already mouth them when I watch the videos but they didn’t fix the captions so it’s still YouTube’s shitty automatic captions and when Pinkie Pie says “but I believe in you, Skywishes!” it says “Stylish honey”
what a great friend. She believes in you and she thinks you’re a stylish honey.

Some Starlight and Ace fantasy
Unfortunately the reality was Ace acting like a total jackass. (These shots are from Starlight’s dream sequence.)
This was my least favorite MLP episode.
Summary: Starlight likes Ace. Ace is mean, disrespectful, and dismissive towards her. Starlight joins the soccer team to impress Ace. He’s still dismissive. Then she makes the winning goal. Then he’s jealous and mean towards her. (Wow, what a catch this guy is.)
But wait. Later he apologizes and wants to talk to Starlight. Because she’s good at soccer. Her plan totally worked and now she is dating Captain Jackass. Well done, Starlight.
"But maybe the episode is really about giving new activities a chance? Personal growth?" No. It’s not. After the soccer match, Starlight is not happy or fulfilled that she helped the team win; she’s depressed because Ace still doesn’t like her. She only joined the team to impress Ace. She specifically says that.
The lesson is “change everything about yourself for your crush, and blind yourself to the fact that they’re an awful person”, with a smattering of “getting a boy to like you is the most important thing EVAH.” Worst episode.
I always get unreasonably annoyed when they have an opportunity to put one of the G4 brushable ponies in the show and they don’t take it. Oh we need a beekeeper pony for this scene? Why don’t we use Honeybuzz? Nah, just re-use that one stallion puppet with different colours. Oh a jeweller? What about Diamond Rose? No, re-use this stallion puppet with different colours and maybe a hat. We need a pegasus? What about Lily Blossom, or Flitterheart, or NOPE just RE-USE THIS STALLION PUPPET WITH DIFFERENT COLOURS
You’d think Hasbro would want their toys to show up in the tv show they made to sell said toys but as we seem to have learned Hasbro is run by lizard men or robots or something??? and their decisions are completely wild and make no sense
Definitely lizard men.
"Hey, little girls like that whole mommy-and-baby thing. What if we made mommy and baby ponies?"
"What isss thiss you sspeak of? Mother lays her eggsss in a sssafe place and leeeavesss."
"Uh, okay … So I guess daddy ponies are out too, then?"
"Daddiess? We like thiss idea. Yesss, they ssshall come with a dead inssssect to entiiice their mate."
"You know what, never mind … "
G3 pony SILVER RAIN
It occurs to me some of you might not know about the “Years” of G3. Each year had a specific theme (until the end of the line where things got muddy).
First year = Celebration. Celebrating the return of MLP. And it certainly did give Hasbro, as well as collectors, something to celebrate, because the ponies sold like gangbusters. I remember Hasbro’s annual report being something like “WE CAN’T BELIEVE HOW WELL THESE PONIES ARE SELLING HOLY SHIT THIS IS AMAZING!!!!”
Second year = Friendship Ball. The first pegasus pony was introduced and they had a lot of glitzy ponies like the Jewel Ponies (gem embedded in their symbol) and the Sparkle ponies (sparkles on their face like they’re going to a rave or something). Plus the dance studio playset. (G4 collectors, do you recognize the pony there who is now a G4 blindbag?)
Third year = Butterfly Island. This is my favorite year of G3. These ponies were BRIGHT AND BOLD and had tropical themes. Three-dimensional symbols and glittery symbols were the big thing, plus the ENORMOUS Butterfly Island playset. Also, more pegasi.
Fourth year = Crystal Princess. This set played it safe. Very safe. Lots of very “samey” ponies. At least we got more pegasus ponies out of it, including Silver Glow, and the Divine Shine (translucent with sparkles) ponies. Also some pretty ponies with gradients down their legs.
Fifth year = More Crystal Princess. Highlight of the year … unicorns. That’s right, it took them FIVE YEARS to make unicorns. Something that has always baffled me.
Sixth and seventh year = The Core Seven. Hasbro got the “brilliant” idea of rereleasing the same seven ponies again and again. Like G4’s Mane Six only MORESO because by the time the line ended those were literally the only ponies being produced. Again and again. ALL IN THE SAME MOLD. And there was no cartoon so you had no investment in these ponies as characters. This is where you saw a great exodus of collectors. It was a sad and ignominious end for G3.

I strongly disliked the G2 ponies when they first appeared, but I really started appreciating that generation around the time G3 went into the whole “Crystal Princess” thing. MLP has always had a lot of pink, purple, and white, but “Crystal Princess” came along and suddenly almost every pony was pink, purple, or white and the symbols got more and more stereotypical.
Like, I’m fine with crowns and flowers and bows, but that doesn’t mean there shouldn’t be anything BUT crowns, flowers, and bow symbols. I honestly think Crystal Princess was the beginning of the end for G3.
G2 had some really great color combinations and symbols so, yes, it grew on me. Although I never did actually start collecting them.
I’d like to get Princess Silver Rain and Princess Golden Light (the first one) someday, though.
