They gave Spike a chance to speak in front of a crowd. With his long history of being Spike, I can't imagine why anyone in the land of Equestria might have thought that was a good idea. He deserves his chance in the spotlight, yeah, but not all of history's deserving heroes have been for their finesse, oratory abilities, or sense of restraint.
This short video is based on a promotional commercial involving Go-Gurt, ponies, and Happy. I'm told that horses are incredibly skittish animals, so I don't quite know how they'd handle it if the McDonalds mascot were a living creature that wanted to be their friends, but I imagine it would be a lot like this.
In the official My Little Pony episode, "Tanks for All the Memories", Rainbow Dash resorts to domestic terrorism to prevent winter and therefore make it so her turtle doesn't need to hibernate. No really, that's the plot. I'm told that if a turtle doesn't hibernate it's actually really bad for them. If you were here early and wondering about the re-upload, somewhere along the way all the colors got white-washed.
Starlight Glimmer was a pony that ran her own cult. The tenets were simple: everyone has to suffer in the lowest common denominator in a Harrison Bergeron dystopia where the baked goods taste like dirt. Then the Elements of Harmony came chased her off. In finale of the season she debuted, Glimmer revealed the stunning motivation for her control-hungry behavior! A totally routine and normal thing happened once and it drove her to evil. CHARACTER REDEEMED.

Twilight discovers that Pinkie has unusual tremors, and that's not usually a sign of anything healthy! Pinkie insists that the tremors have to do with her psychic powers, but Pinkie is generally an unreliable source on anything. What does Twilight learn from all this? She learns friendship. She always learns about friendship.
Rainbow Dash is a horse with approximately one skill, and it is flying fast. Thus, when a competition emerges in Cloudsdale, Dash puts her powers to the test and proposes a marvelous plan! She will break the speed of sound. Nothing about her plan is imperfect and it will work out perfectly in the end, because life is like that always.
Thrackerzod meets with a friend from another dimension, revealing political troubles from the dreaming realm. Twilight Sparkle's merciless advance must be stopped at all costs, but how? Why, a sleep-over at Fluttershy's of course! Meanwhile, Fluttershy herself has decided that being good with kids needs to be one of her crucial accomplishments in life.
When Thrackerzod, Scootaloo, and Applebloom are surprised with a mandatory talent contest that may threaten their grades, the trio is forced to take drastic actions. They must acquire money by any means their child brains can conceive of, even if it means labor. One doesn't win a contest with their spirit alone! Unless the other kids don't have a budget either.
Spike's treasure hoard is captured by subterranean dogs that love gemstones! Oh, also Rarity gets captured too. Can Rarity stand up to the dumbest and least dangerous external threat in the entire history of the show? Honestly, she barely has to.
Rarity hires Fluttershy to model for her, and it turns out that Fluttershy's doormat personality is just perfect for a notoriously exploitative industry that preys on hopes and dreams.
The ponies go on a Wild West adventure, where it turns out a bunch of buffalo hate trees and have a really specific running path that goes to no specific destination for no specific reason. The conflict is that ponies have decided a desert is a great place for trees. Dash attempts to mediate their problem.
Fluttershy gets her moment in the spotlight! And of course she screws it all up. If you're going to assassinate someone's bird with love, it's not a good idea to practice on the one that belongs to the god princess of your country.
Ponyville's younger heroes are on a mission. A mission to do the same thing they do every single day without fail: try to seduce the world. That and kill Twilight Sparkle. Or maybe stay home and play board games one of these days. It's hard to tell, but there's definitely a fixation at work here.
Twilight gets an owl! There's nothing particularly amazing about. It hunts mice, sees in the dark, and generally does owl things. It's tame. Not much can be said. I guess we'll just kill time this episode.
The abridged series "MAS" is made by FiMFlamFilosophy. This is a CamRip from the footage of BABSCon 2015, where FiMFlamFilosophy showed it and said that people can film it and post if they want. Since I backed up all episodes from 1 to 22 before (he said he didn't mind), I did the same for this one, color-correcting so it would look a bit better and adding standard intro / outro text parts copied from episode 22. FiMFlamFilosophy said he won't be putting this episode on his channel because of possible copyright problems.
Twilight gets a pair of tickets and must make an assessment as to who deserves them.
Applejack's brother becomes injured right in time for him to miss the entire harvest season, so it's up to Applejack to make a complete fool of herself all around town and fundamentally do worse and worse work. Unless someone just intervenes and makes the problem a moot issue.
Gilda visits Dash for a few weeks of fun and catching up. The two got up to a lot of trouble back in the day, but apparently there's been a bit of growing up and growing apart since then. It's funny how nostalgia can color your perception of someone.
It can be a grand day when a performer comes to town! Unless said performer actually has no performance and plans to talk down to the town's residence. The glorious Trixie show takes no hostages, except perhaps for Trixie who feels awkwardly trapped on stage until things derail.
Twilight and her friends are given a mission to slay a dragon. They could walk all the way up a mountain, or they could use magic to find a lazier way and save a ton of time.
There's a storm set to roll in over Ponyville, and Twilight finds two of her friends cooped up in her house, presumably for the night. Between the three of them they don't have a single common interest or mutual hobby. They blasted a god with rainbows once and that's about it.
Nothing in Ponyville is more horrible then when a strange creature comes into town. And since they live next to a forest full of maticores and on top of the physical gateway to Hell itself, it's probably pretty reasonable to be afraid of anything you aren't used to.
The Yellow One makes an appearance bearing a horrible infestation of adorable parasites, but Twilight, being the enterprising horse that she is, comes up with a swift solution to the problem.
Spring time is rolling around, and that means the ponies need to endure back-breaking manual labor in order to make the season change! Twilight would prefer to use magic, but it's against the rules.
Growing up as a pony means having your destiny magically determined for you by a life-long image on your butt. Whatever that image comes to be, whether it's a thumb tack or an inexplicable desert island, will be the one thing you're truly good at above all else. For this reason it's both a rite of adulthood and a kind of hazing ritual to gain and celebrate the cutie mark. Most children are afflicted at a very young age, but continue going to school anyway in spite of being imbued with all knowledge related to their craft by sorcery.
Rainbow Dash stakes her personal worth on being able to win petty competitions, so there's not a lot of time before age sets in and she has to grapple with that. Applejack decides to muscle in for the sake of pride, and the result is an insecure Dash willing to go to any length to be the top of whatever the heck is going on.
Rarity runs a "boutique" in a tiny little town where virtually nothing goes on. Every once and a while there's a prom or homecoming dance, but those require some less than stellar dresses. So when the possibility of going to the Gala comes up, Rarity works for things aside from direct financial compensation. The real money comes from the frilly numbers she sells out of the back room, anyway.
Earth ponies don't get a lot of magic. They're supposed to be in touch with the earth, but unless they're farming or otherwise tending a garden, it doesn't seem like much of an advantage. Pinkie, however, has the psychiatrist powers.
Dash goes to Cloudsdale to participate in a young flyer's competition! Fluttershy is in tow, but between the two of them there's barely enough real confidence to go inside a super market.
