My Little Pony isn’t afraid to get a little R-rated. How else can you explain Jules and Vincent enjoying at meal at this pony diner? Are they arguing about the pony version of Big Macs? Are they on their way to shoot a bunch of people? At which point in the Pony Pulp Fiction timeline does this episode take place? How many people have they killed so far? And what other Tarantino characters can we expect to see in the future? The Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, perhaps?
Since writing the last list, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has kept producing new episodes and seasons like any other non-cancelled show. And with age comes daring do, it seems, because there have been even more cameos than before! Heck, some of the pop culture reference characters have even . I’ve gotten a couple henchies commenting to let me know about some of the new cameos, so I’ve decided to whip up another awesome cameo list!
Bless you, My Little Pony, bless you. I am a huge Wes Anderson fan, and this is just great. Rainbow Dash is attending a fan convention for her hero Daring Do, an Indiana Jones-inspired adventurist. At the convention, she meets Quibble Pants, a fanboy who gets a little too nit-picky about some of Daring Do’s more recent adventures. Quibble Pants is voiced by Patton Oswalt, the king of nit-picky fanboy rants. And if you have listened to Patton’s latest stand-up special, you’ll know how cool this cameo .
Detective episodes are always a hoot, and My Little Pony tapped that well in Season 5 with Rarity Investigates! The fashion maven pony Rarity goes full film noir mode to prove her pal Rainbow Dash did not commit a crime, completely with cuts to black and white and heavy-handed narration. And it was nice of the showrunners to tip their hats to famous detectives Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson…except they totally went with the modern versions from the BBC show Sherlock. That’s definitely Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman in the background up there. Of course, considering Sherlock is the superior Holmes adaptation these days, I say by all means. Gotta stay hip with today’s young audience.
