Pony Sunday: Baby Cakes

Welcome back to Pony Saturday—or rather, Pony Sunday. Yes, my fellow bronies, I moved it to a new day. I simply can’t review the new episode on the same day.

Anywho, here are my thoughts on this week’s new episode “Baby Cakes.”



• Mr. and Mrs. Cake’s babies: Pound Cake and Pumpkin Cake! Dawwwwww!
• It’s the return of Nurse Redheart.
• 1st Song: “Happy, Happy Birthday to you and you today…”
• LOL! Pinkie gets kicked out of the maternity ward. (But not for long!)
• One twin is a pegasus and the other is a unicorn. Pony genetics are confusing.
• 2nd Song: “You’re A Month Old Today!”
• Meme Alert: “Where’s Pinkie Pie? Here I am!” (Now let’s loop it for 10 min.!)
• I feel sorry for ponies. They have to change diapers with their mouths. Eww!
• Who else loves Pinkie Pie’s watch? I want one! :D
• Did anyone else expect the babies to throw up over Pinkie? They looked more like they were going to throw up rather than burp.
• Anyone else think Pound Cake is going to get a cutie mark in martial arts?
• Why didn’t the Cakes think of asking Pinkie Pie to babysit before traveling all over Ponyville asking the other ponies?
• Fluttershy: “You understand don’t you? You’re not mad at me, are you? Please don’t be mad at me!” (You’re—going—to LOVE ME!)
• Typical Twilight Sparkle: Writing a report summarizing her other reports to the Princess. XD
• Man, those caterpillars are hungry!
• “Gotta Dash”? Gotta Blast!
• Why doesn’t Rarity want to babysit? She doesn’t even give a reason why. She could have said she was working on a dress or something.
• Mr. Cake: “Pinkie Pie, how would you like to babysit for us?” Pinkie: “I don’t know. I’ll have to check my schedule.” LOL! XD
• Pinkie: “Responsibility is my middle name! Pinkie Responsibility Pie!” No, you’re middle name is Diana! XD
• And on cue, once the parents leave, the babies cry! “Uh Oh” indeed.
• Pinkie Pie: don’t quit your day job. Stand up is obviously not your thing.
• 3rd Song: “Oink!”
• “First you jiggle your tail (Oink! Oink! Oink!), then you wiggle your snout (Oink! Oink! Oink!), then you wriggle your rump (Oink! Oink! Oink!), and shout it out (Oink! Oink! Oink!)!”
• Love the babies’ reaction! Perfectly conveys “WTF is this $#!+!”
• Pinkie Pie Flour Count: 1 (Get used to Pinkie getting doused in flour: it’s a running gag!)
• "Nom Nom Nom!" :3
• Pinkie Pie Flour Count: 2
• Man those babies are fast!
• Did Pinkie filling the bath with all those toys remind anyone else of this Sesame Street skit?
• Pinkie Pie Flour Count: 3
• Pinkie’s wet mane doesn’t compare to Rarity’s! :D
• Did Pinkie Pie’s diaper predicament remind anyone else of this Fluttershy fan art?
• Pinkie Pie: “These babies won’t listen to reason. And don’t get me started on their taste in stand-up comedy.”
• Way to take things the wrong way, Pinkie Pie!
• The rubber chicken makes the same “Squee!” sound as Fluttershy! LOL! XD
• Pinkie Pie: “Pound Cake, this is a crib. It is only to be used for napping, sleeping, and on occasion with permission, as a pretend old-timey Western fort.”
• Those babies sleep on command!
• Man, the episode’s atmosphere quickly turns into that of a horror movie. (And this is why I love MLP:FIM!)
• OMG! It’s the spider walk from Exorcist!
• Okay, I call BS! Scootaloo can’t fly, but Pound Cake can—at 1 month!?
• Spider-Pinkie, Spider-Pinkie, does whatever a Spider-Pinkie does!
• "Nom Nom Nom!” :3
• Pound Cake can fly—at one month—and fast! Again, I call BS!
• “Mmm, Razzleberry!”
• Pumpkin Cake can levitate herself and other objects, pass through objects, and unlock locks and unbound chains. Damn, she’s more powerful than Twilight!
• Dawwwwww! Pinkie Pie cries. Just like she did in Part 2 of “Elements of Harmony.”
• And the babies douse themselves in flour!
• Pinkie: “Let me check my schedule. I should be free a week from—never!”
• And the babies can talk! “Pinkie.” “Pie.” Man, these babies are gifted!
