Fridge: My Little Pony 'n Friends

Fridge Logic:

My Little Pony segments:
  • In-universe example, when Wind Whistler invokes this trope for a Story Within a Story in Crunch the Rockdog:
    Wind Whistler: Why would Valentine's friend gallop away at sunset?
    Paradise: Huh?
    Wind Whistler: It is illogical to begin a long journey just as the sun is setting.
  • How the chaos did the Sea Ponies survive out of water that long in The Magic Coins?

Glo Friends segments:
  • In the first part of Five-Episode Pilot, The Quest, Glo Lake from which the Glo Friends drink the Moon Drops which allows them to glow in the dark springs a leak. This is treated as a Level Red emergency. So... Why do the Glo Friends have to glow, anyway? They don't seem to need it, being daytime dwelling beings.
    • They seem to get weak if they don't take their moondrops. Like plants needing water.
  • In some episodes, the Moligans actually put the captured Glo Friends to work digging for gold. Considering how small they are, they wouldn't be able to much work done.

Moondreamers segments:
  • So let me get this straight. Queen Scowlene is unable to enter Staria because there's one manhole cover blocking the way to the topside of one of their roads... in the vast emptiness of space in which navigating one's self a few feet to the left or right and then going up would bypass that obstacle. Yet, she was able to go anywhere else in space before then. Er, how does this work?
    • The Monsterous Middle and Staria are linked by black holes (which the manhole covers block). Thus, we can determine that the Monsterous Middle is in another dimension. Hence she wouldn't have anyway to go around the obstacle. As for the method she uses to send her minions to Earth, we can assume that for some reason it can't be used to get to Staria.
Potato Head Kids segments:

Fridge Brilliance:

  • "The Fugitive Flowers" has an Accidental Aesop that counteracts/builds off of its apparently Broken Aesop that, while the ponies did judge the Crabnasties as being the bad guys and the Flories as the goodguys because of the former looking nasty, they also did so because the Crabnasties were hostile to begin with, ripping through the forests and refusing to stop and explain themselves. So the episode's aesop is both "you can't judge a book by its cover", but also "Poor Communication Kills" — the ponies were wrong for judging the Crabnasties by their looks, but the Crabnasties were wrong for not trying to be more diplomatic.
