* HeyItsThatVoice: Who would have guessed that a movie apparently made to market a children's toy would star Danny [=DeVito=], Creator/NancyCartwright, Rhea Perlman, Cloris Leachman, and Creator/MadelineKahn?
** Lickety-Split is [[{{Doug}} Beebe Bluff]], Creator/CharlieAdler is Spike, and Danny is Creator/ScottMenville, The Moochic is [[Theatre/TheOddCouple Felix Unger]], North Star is [[PowerPuffGirls Blossom]], and Creator/PeterCullen is a Grundle.
** Moochick is also the [[Film/{{Gremlins}} Brain Gremlin]]
* IronyAsSheIsCast: After hearing the part of "I'll Go It Alone" where Baby Lickety Split and Spike start trying to sing high notes but just come off as screaming, most people have assumed that Baby Lickety Split has no hope in the music business. In real life, her voice actress, Alice Playten, has done work on Broadway and actually has something of a nice voice.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Buzz Dixon's "punch up" of the film's script would've involved one of the Little Ponies encountering some of the Transformers and G.I. Joes, more specifically, a scene where she meets the Joe sailor Shipwreck.
** It should be said that this would have been a ''little'' confusing to the target audience the first time they saw the film... and ''totally awesome'' upon rewatching it as an adult.
*** As for why the scenes were cut...well, considering the aforementioned G.I. Joe scene involved a ''drunk'' Shipwreck seeing one of the ponies while drinking, before proceeding to smash his whiskey bottle and start praying to himself, it's no small wonder Creator/{{Hasbro}} refused. Their exact response? "Very funny...'' no''".
