* {{Syndication}}: How this series was aired. All four segments aired in it's First-run syndication. However, during it's Second-run syndication on the DisneyChannel in the 90s, only ''Pony'' segments were reaired (and even then, it rotated with WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTales; both used the opening from "...Tales").

This early incarnation of Franchise/MyLittlePony was set in a world called ''Ponyland''. Though its continuity was... lax, all of the stories take place within it. The basic framing structure of the show was that the ponies are magical creatures living idyllically in [[SugarBowl Dream Valley]], part of Ponyland (or Ponyland, part of Dream Valley - no two writers agreed on this point). Originally, the ponies resided in Dream Castle during the Half-Hour TV Specials, but after TheMovie (and the creation of that [[MerchandiseDriven playset]]) they moved into Paradise Estate. In fact, Dream Castle is never seen at all during the course of the series.

In fact, Dream Castle is never seen at all during the course of the series.



The episodes focused on ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'' ran for 65 episodes in total. There were 16 multipart serials, each 2-4 parts long with the sole exception of the [[FiveEpisodePilot ten-part pilot]], and 9 stand-alone episodes, as well as two 2-part serials adapting the WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTVSpecials.

As mentioned above, show continuity was not the strongest point. The show officially follows on as a sequel to ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTheMovie'' (as the ten-part pilot makes clear, since it's about the witches Hidea, Reeka, and Draggle [[spoiler: wanting revenge for the foiling of the Smooze]]), and both of the WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyTVSpecials obviously take place before the movie, but were serialized as the last episodes of the first and second seasons, respectively. Not helping matters is that most official [=DVD=] releases tend to be simple conversions of the original grab-bag episode-featuring [=VHSs=], further jumbling the 27 storylines.

* ForTheEvulz: Scowlene's reasoning for wanting to take over and destroy Starry Up? Because its there. Also its something to do. The MindRape of children at least has jealousy of their sleep as an additional motivation.

* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Seen often the series' villains, such as Draggle and (to a lesser extent) Reeka to Hydia, Sting to Bumble, or Prince Edgar to King Charlatan. "The Glass Princess" inverts the trope, as the Raptarians are far more dangerous than Porcina, who mostly suffers from a LackOfEmpathy.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: "Woe is Me" is a 2-part story that featured a very unlucky goblin named Woebegone, who caused disasters wherever he stopped by. The first episode ends with Woebegone causing a chain of disasters which culminates with him releasing what may or not may be a river of ''liquid poo'' that quickly forms a small lake. ''And a baby pony almost dies drowned on it.''
** In "The End of Flutter Valley," one of the spells Draggle reads while searching for "landslide" is "landmine".

Ponyland is a MagicalLand "on the other side of the rainbow". The rainbow is basically hinted to be a doorway between the human dimension (Earth) and theirs. Ponyland is populated by [[SmallAnnoyingCreature Bushwoolies]], Sea and [[TheFairFolk Flutter]] ponies, [[AllTrollsAreDifferent Grundles]], bee-people, talking pigs, giant terriers, bird-dog hybrids, zebra-people, evil storm clouds, elves, bigfoot-like people who build forests, and monster weeds, among other, weirder things. Humans are often seen, and live in a Medieval Europe-style society. The ponies are assisted in their adventures by a teen named Megan; her siblings Molly and Danny; Spike the Baby Dragon; and the Moochic, a scatter-brained gnome wizard with mushroom motif, and his BeleagueredAssistant, Habit the Rabbit.

** The Flories also do this. They start out in a weakened, tiny and cute state. But once they've devoured enough food from their surroundings, they transform into gigantic, monstrous forms.
