Pony Sunday: Hearts And Hooves Day

Welcome to yet another edition of Pony Sunday. Well, I thought this week’s episode was going to be the last one for this season, but it turns out there will be at least three more this March. Until then, I still plan on sharing my thoughts on the other episodes I didn’t cover.

Anyway, here are my thoughts on this new Valentine’s Day episode “Hearts and Hooves”:



• The cutie mark crusader’s valentine for Cheerilee = epic!
• Aw! Looks like Chubby Cheeks has a crush on Twist. :D
• Again, I must ask: where are Snips and Snails? They’re supposed to be part of Apple Bloom’s class, yet they’re never shown in the classroom. Again, I’m posturing the theory that they’re playing hookey.
• A single schoolteacher? We haven’t seen that before!
• Sweetie Belle’s smile! :D
• LOL! Twist misses and pins the heart on Cheerilee!
• And the CMC skip school to look for Cheerilee’s special somepony. I “love” how lenient the school system in Equestria is.
• Well, it’s our fourth full song in the series, and it doesn’t fail being awesome. I really love Sweetie Belle’s singing voice.
• Doctor Hooves is on a bridge with Derpy Hooves! The couple is officially canon!
• Hey look: it’s the old pony with the pipe cutie mark from “The Mysterious Mare Do Well”—and he’s apparently holding a funeral. Um, morbid.
• CARAMEL IS WITH ANOTHER PONY?! Well, there goes the Apple Jack/Caramel shipping! But then again, this is My Little Pony: it’s not known to be consistent with its background characters. After all, he was shown as a Pegasus in “Sonic Rainboom” and working in the Canterlot rodeo in “The Last Roundup.” And who knows. Maybe he’ll break up with her and go for Apple Jack! Horray! :D
• No, Cheerilee can’t have Doctor Whooves! He’s already with Derpy!
• The colt obessed with Jelly is creepy! O_o!
• Does the CMC jumping up a pyramid of hay remind anyone else of the video game Q-bert?
• They want to couple Cheerilee with Big Mac? NOI Fluttershy is Big Mac’s Waifu!
• Maybe it’s just me, but is the carrot building to the left of Sweet Apple Acres new? If so, what is it? Carrot Top’s house?
• Really love how the gazebo looks. Really natural.
• Oh yeah, girls: way to be inconspicuous! They won’t suspect a thing.
• NO! Fluttershy and Big Mac are perfect for each other!
• Sweetie Belle: “Aw, C’mon!” (Rainbow Dash: “Oh, for Pete’s sake!”)
• Yeah, Twilight should be more caerful with whom she shares books with—especially after explaining one book has a recipe for a love potion that could be a love poison!
• The other book Twilight suggests is the same one from the opening to “Mare In The Moon.”
• Where did the lookout from the treehouse go to? It was there in “Family Appreciation Day.”
• They get the puff of cloud from the same cliff the bus ran over in “The Mysterious Mare Do Well.”
• Apparently, rainbow’s can be vacuumed of their glow.
• Oh yeah, two carefully poured-out cups of punch. That’s not suspicious at all!
• Sweetie Belle: “Yes!” (FlutterMac fans: “NO!”)
• Cheerilee: “He’s my Shmoopy-Doopy Sweetie-Weetie Pony Pie!” (Love her expression—even though I want to off her for stealing Big Mac from Fluttershy!)
• “Cutie-Patootie Lovey-Dovey Honey Bunny”? “Hearty-Smarty Smoochy-Woochy Baby-Waebee”? Is anyone else developing diabetes from this?
• Apple Bloom: “What’s going on?” You slipped him a love potion. What did you expect?!
• I’m not going to write down all the cute nicknames. I’m vomiting a little in my mouth just listening to them!
• Why would someone write down the recipe for a love poison? That’s almost like writing down the instructions to the atom bomb. Then again, this is the same world where any unicorn can cast an attraction spell that can cause chaos amongst the entire townspeople.
• Also, isn’t the potion—or rather, poison—supposed to be for “two ponies who are not in the know”? How can someone cast such a spell on themselves?
• Apple Bloom: “It will be chaos! It will be chaos!” Love the Southern inflection there!
• Oh yeah, let’s just suggest that the two love-poison infected lovebirds prepare to get married! That can’t possibly backfire in any way imaginable!
• I feel the same way, Apple Bloom and Scootaloo: I can’t even write those cute nicknames without fainting from a diabetic shock!
• Funny how Rarity isn’t around while Sweetie Belle and Cheerilee are in her boutique trying on dresses.
• LOL! Sweetie Belle uses Rarity’s couch to block the door.
• Big Mac almost nods his head the same way Fluttershy does in “May The Best Pet Win” (which only proves why the two are meant for each other!)
• The six gems together remind me of the Elements of Harmony.
• That was a quick purchase!
• Big Mac prances like Pepe Le Pew! LOL!
• Even prancing he can pull an ox-driven wagon of anvils! They don’t call him Big Mac for nothing.
• Big Mac carries away Berry Punch’s house!
• Cheerilee running towards Big Mac and through the CMC = Epic!
• Love how Cheerilee and Big Mac troll the CMC into thinking they’re in love again.
• Well, at least Cheerilee and Big Mac are only friends now. That means Fluttershy still has a chance with Big Mac! Yay! (Or rather: GASP…yay!)
