Discussion

We’re talking about the absolutely insane episode called “Pinkie Pride” this week! And we mean insane! The big thing, of course, is Weird Al playing Cheese Sandwich! Seriously, how cool is that? He brings a lot to the already rambunctious Pinkie, so the episode is turned up to 11! But maybe Pinkie isn’t feeling it anymore…

Yep, Pinkie is feeling left out when Cheese comes to town, and takes over planning Rainbow Dash’s Birth-iversary party. Oh no! This episode did have a lot to talk about, including crazy jokes, the multitude of songs, and… live action segments? WHAT?! Oh, and that darn shimmering rainbow eyes thing shows up again. Those ponies really should see an optometrist about that...
