Discovery Family will resume showing new (to those who have managed to avoid spoilers) Season Seven episodes starting on Saturday, August 5th. That day will see both “Discordant Harmony” and “The Perfect Pear” air starting at 11:30am ET/10:30am CT. Other episodes airing in August are “Fame and Misfortune”, “Triple Threat”, and “Campfire Tales”. Synopses below:
- Discordant Harmony premieres Saturday, August 5 at 11:30a/10:30c
- When Discord invites Fluttershy to his realm for tea, he worries she won’t be comfortable and begins to change it and himself with disastrous results.
- The Perfect Pear premieres Saturday, August 5 at 12/11c
- The Apple Siblings learn about their parent’s love story and discover that they’re half Pear. Guest stars William Shatner and Felicia Day.
- Fame and Misfortune premieres Saturday, August 12 at 11:30a/10:30c
- Twilight Sparkle’s publishing of the friendship journal has unintended consequences when ponies start to argue over who wrote the best lessons.
- Triple Threat premieres Saturday, August 19 at 11:30a/10:30c
- Spike accidentally invites Ember and Thorax to Ponyville on the same day! Confident that the two new leaders will not get along, he does all he can to keep them apart and cover the fact that the other is there.
- Campfire Tales premieres Saturday, August 26 at 11:30a/10:30c
- When their big sister/little sister camping trip is ruined by Fly-ders, Applejack, Rarity and Rainbow Dash tell Sweetie Belle, Apple Bloom, and Scootaloo the stories of their favorite legends. Inspired by the tales, the girls make the most out of their new situation.
Of course, both “Discordant Harmony” and “The Perfect Pear”—which features William Shatner and Felicia Day—were aired in Australia in June on Boomerang. It is the policy to not release reviews of these episodes until their airings in the United States.
With BronyCon the next weekend, that means that “Fame and Misfortune” will air that weekend. It is unknown at this time as to whether there will be an official screening which would be a first for the Baltimore-based convention.
If the season continues to air weekly, and the finale is a two-parter, the projected finale date at this point would be October 28th (three weeks after the movie opens). It has already been revealed that a sneak peek of Season Eight will be unveiled at Hascon on September 9th at noon at the Rhode Island Convention Center (Room 551 A/B) in Providence.
Of course, this weekend sees the My Little Pony panel this Friday at San Diego Comic Con with presumably both a preview of the Movie and the remainder of Season Seven.

According to a listing on the TV Guide website, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic will resume Season Seven on Saturday, August 5th on Discovery Family. The show will resume with “Discordant Harmony” airing on August 5th. If indeed the show airs a new episode once a week, then it’s possible the attendees at BronyCon could get a screening of “The Perfect Pair” on Saturday, August 12th.
It’s a couple weeks away before San Diego Comic Con. My Little Pony, Steven Universe, and Star vs. the Forces of Evil will all have Friday (July 21st) panels in San Diego. Below are the full details (all times Pacific):

Despite the rumors of the olden days, our site has had very little contact with anyone official (in terms off news). People used to whisper that sites like this (and EqD) had the eye of Hasbro upon them, though given our “baked goods” section here, I doubt Hasbro has never even noticed us, though the President of The Hub did once. Anyways with the movie and Hasbro’s first official convention coming up, seems the third party PR firm that found us has been churning out a fair share of news packets.
Ponychat: The After Show Show
First up on the block is a new “after show” show dubbed PonyChat, not to be confused with ye old Ponychat.net, a fan built IRC network that looks to be dead now. The show is hosted by kids and will feature behind the scenes opportunities with storywriters, fans and parents to discuss important themes, friendship lessons and character development. It will run as a 6 episode mini-series.
For fans of the popular My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic TV series, Hasbro is introducing PonyChat, the official, kid-hosted My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic aftershow. As one of the newest kid-focused after shows on the market, PonyChat will give My Little Pony fans a behind the scenes opportunity with storywriters, fans and parents to discuss important themes, friendship lessons and character developments throughout the Friendship Is Magic series. PonyChat will consist of a 6 episode mini-series, each hosted by the ultimate fans, 6-10 year old boys and girls, which will be hosted on My Little Pony’s official Facebook Page and YouTube Channel.
Today, the first episode of PonyChat went up! You can view the video at the link here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOjf0mCpJ9g
The first episode gives a look back at My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic season 7: Not Asking for Trouble. In this episode, the two hosts reenact scenes, have an ice cream social and use pony magic to meet up with some special friends!
Following the first episode, fans can look forward to new episodes of PonyChat coming soon on the My Little Pony site, YouTube and Facebook pages.
Ponify Now An Open Source Word.
Then someone decided to add “ponify” to the open source version of the Webster Dictionary. Yay, I guess.
The English language is constantly growing with new words, giving people more and more options to spice up their vocabulary… We’re excited to announce that today, “ponify” has officially been added to the open source Webster dictionary! You can search the word at the link here:
You can find Webster’s definition of “ponify” below, and the word is exactly what you would think of based on the hit animated TV series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic!
ponify (verb) : to bestow the harmonious qualities relating to the magic of friendship (such as loyalty, generosity, kindness, laughter, and honesty) as featured in Hasbro’s animated show, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, upon a person, creature, fictional figure, or inanimate object by converting into the likeness of an animated My Little Pony character
Alice ponified her best friend Sarah and now she looks like one of the Mane 6 from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
