My Little Pony meets Project Runway in this week’s episode, which finds poised unicorn Rarity traveling to the big city: Manehattan, the seat of Equestria’s high society. She’s come to show her collection at a big fashion show. Unfortunately, soon after arriving, poor Rarity finds herself clashing with a mean-spirited fellow designer named Prim Hemline — a devil in Pony-rada. (Or maybe Diane von Hoofstenberg? Calvin Rein? Dolc-neigh and Gabbana?)
TVLine has published a teaser video of the upcoming episode. Be careful, though, it’s a song sequence, Babs Seed levels of spoilery.
This Saturday at 10:30 am ET/7:30 am PT, the Hub Network’s My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic takes Manehattan when Rarity and the Mane Six hoof it to the big city to attend an important fashion show. Amid their adventure — suffice to say, a rival designer sabotages Rarity (neigh!) — a musical montage sampled below will offer up visual winks to Mad Men‘s Don, Joan and others.
AT&T U-verse, which is powered by FYI Television, just published a longer synopsis for “Rarity Takes Manehattan.” You can find the Zap2it synopsis in our earlier post.
