Summer is over, and that means it’s time for hourlong TV specials about everything from after-school warnings to midseason cliffhangers. Or, if you’re My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, you’re getting a head start on the holiday season, skipping right over Halloween and Thanksgiving. This Hearth’s Warming creep is out of control!
That’s right, an hour-long special titled “Best Gift Ever” will air on Discovery Family, showing the various ponies attempting to give each other great gifts long before Christmas rears its head. Fall is early enough to start celebrating the seasonal spirit, even when that means feeling the crunch to trot through Equestria in order to get the right gifts for the right tiny horses.
And only one each! Thanks to a new gift-giving decision, the pressure is on to find everyone’s perfect present, because nothing is worse than disappointing a cartoon pony. Now fans can get in the holiday spirit with this new present-centric trailer.
Check it out:
Yes, those are reindeer. Or, perhaps, My Little Reindeer? The rhyming scheme of the trailer’s narrator is only slightly more Christmas-y, but at least it’s waiting until the end of the month to show its snowy drama. Even still, with the amount of Halloween content popping up in kids' TV around then, it’ll be hard not to feel out of place.
The holiday special unwraps its presents on Oct. 27.
