My Little Pony (AKA My Little Pony n Friends) - Also Coming to DVD: 'Escape From Catrina and Other Adventures'

Available from Shout! on Sept. 30th, the same day as 'The Complete Series'

Posted by David Lambert
We brought you news just yesterday that on September 30th, Shout! Factory will bring you a 4-DVD release of the 1980s classic cartoon, My Little Pony - The Complete Series. Now, before there was an ongoing TV show called My Little Pony n Friends, there were three previous productions of the franchise: the original Spring 1984 prime-time My Little Pony half-hour special (also known as "Rescue at Midnight Castle") that starred Sandy Duncan and Tony Randall. Then there was the Spring 1985 half-hour prime-time special, My Little Pony - Escape From Catrina, starring the voice of Tammy Grimes (The Last Unicorn). Then there was the Summer 1986 theatrical film, My Little Pony: The Movie, which ran 85 minutes...and which led directly to the first ten episodes of the Fall 1986 television series (an arc known as "The End of Flutter Valley," which is expected to be on the Complete Series DVD release).

In our report yesterday about The Complete Series from Shout! Factory, we overlooked the fact that this isn't the only MLP title that SF is putting out on that date. Also scheduled for September 30th is My Little Pony - Escape From Catrina and Other Adventures, a single-DVD title that Amazon shows will run 110 minutes, for $12.99 SRP. The studio info doesn't say which "other adventures" are included on this item, but does say the content - whatever it may be - is closed captioned. Here's the studio description (which only covers Escape), and package art as well:

    Will Catrina Put An End To The Costume Ball Before The Little Ponies Can Have Their Fun? When the evil, cat-like Catrina attempts to enslave the Little Ponies of Paradise Estates to create a Witchweed potion that will grant her control of the weather, it's up to Sundance and Baby Moondancer to save the day! There's already so much to do before the costume ball! With the help of their human friend, Megan, can Sundance and Baby Moondancer rescue the other Little Ponies in time?
