#15. The Cart Before the Ponies

Writers: Ed Valentine and Michael Vogel

Storyboard: Patricia Ross and Megan Willis

Characters: Cutie Mark Crusaders, Cheerilee

Season: 6, ep. 14 Overall: 131

Summary: The Cutie Mark Crusaders enter the Ponyville Applewood Derby Race. They each ask Rainbow Dash, Applejack, and Rarity to help. Scootaloo wants the “Most Creative” trophy, Sweetie Belle wants “Most Traditional”, and Apple Bloom wants to win the “Fastest” award. However, each of the adults has her own idea.

Review: Ugh, this episode was so slow. You’d think an episode about a go-cart race would be fast-paced. But nope, we have the three members of the main 6 acting so out of character that the episode is far from entertaining. Not once do they even consider listening to the Crusaders, at least not until close to the end. And Miss Cheerilee in particular is the worst. She could’ve stopped the race at any time because it was pretty obvious the Crusaders weren’t driving their carts. The song seemed tacked on because the writers thought it would make everyone forget how bad this episode is. No, it emphasized how bad it was even more. Ed Valentine is usually the show’s best writer when it comes to the CMC, but this episode is not his A game at all.
