Trivia / My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic S2 E16 "Read It and Weep"

  • Fandom Nod: Unconfirmed, but Dash's ninja suit is effectively a hoodie (the drawstrings are shown several times), which itself is an art fad among MLPFIM artists.
    • Two of the episodes main Aesops could be seen as nods to the fandom, "Don't knock it till you've tried it" and "Don't be ashamed of what you like"
  • Fan Nickname
    • Some fans are already calling this the "Reading Rainbow Episode". As it turns out the original name of the episode was "Reading Rainbow" but it was changed for an as yet unknown reason, probably rights reasons.
    • Other suggested nicknames have been "Appleaday" for the doctor and "Barking Mad" or "Screwloose" for the mad-pony.
    • Still others brought up the names "Reading Rainboom" and "Sonic Rainbook," playing off of Dash's signature move "The Sonic Rainboom."
    • "Metal Gear Rainbow Dash" because Dash would sneak back into the hospital to finish the story.
  • Working Title: Apparently "Reading Rainbow" was the working title early on.
