There are a few friendship is witchcraft references in the original series, Lord Smooze being one of them.

So upon re-watching this episode, I caught a reference that is so subtle, it went entirely over my head the first time. I knew I recognized this character from somewhere, but when I realized who it was, it totally blew my mind.

It's totally Danny, from The Shining.

After much scrolling and page flipping, I see I'm not the first to catch this one. Brilliant reference.

I still don't understand why Discord says "Have you no heart?" when Fluttershy suggests they all go to dinner together. :/

Probably because he wanted it to be just him and her.

 

Any episode with Discord in it I enjoy. I feel like this episode showed off more of Discord.

Diffently my favorite part of this episode is at the end when Celestia says how she invited Discord for the fun he brings, and Twilight's face was priceless.

Pinkie Pie's grabbing the camera and shaking it may be a sign that in a future episode Pinkie is eventually going to actually jump out of the screen and give us all great big hugs.

 

I also like how she seems to enjoy the Smooze attacks. She even dances with the Smooze at the end.

 

Fun Episode.

After watching the season, this is the best episode with Discord or  his best participation of the whole season, and it was very entertaining featuring Fluttershy

The Smoob or what ever, is kind of gay.

Another episode involving the Grand Galloping Gala, and Discord finds himself on the receiving end of the green-eyed monster known as "Jealousy."

 

Not a bad way to bring back another older generation monster like the Smooze, though when he got too big and flooded the ballroom, I kind of felt upset over how Celestia seemed to not be enjoying this with having her mane and wings drooping with slime and being unable to use her horn either due to the tip being blocked by some of the Smooze's ooze as well. However, she threw me for a loop when she revealed at the end she was actually enjoying it, and sounded even more cheerful and energetic than usual about it! Never underestimate Celestia when it comes to livening up the Gala in various ways she sees fit to give her the excitement she craves!

 

For me, I think I'll give this episode a 9/10 since it helped Discord overcome another part of friendship when it comes to being jealous.

the episode was great to watch and the writers made discord's insecurity look realistic. it is a common problem people face when one of their friends decide to take them to the party by leaving the other out.

I think that pretty much speaks for itself.

While I am not as overly fond of this episode as many others are, I did find it to be at least somewhat enjoyable.

I really liked the scene with Pinkie and Discord in Sugarcube Corner and the Smooze was a pretty good new character to be introduced to the series.

I also enjoyed seeing Fluttershy stepping out of her comfort zone and being able to make a new friend in Treehugger all by herself.

I felt that it made for some good character development.

Plus the sock puppet scene was pretty funny as well.

The same goes for Applejack crying over Apple Bloom getting ready for the Gala.

Discord mentions humans in this episode. What does THAT mean.

This one's funny. Discord is a jerk and I don't know why the ponies keep him around, but he's always fun to watch, and the Smooze is honestly kinda adorable. Add in Maud in a much improved second appearance, funny moments from just about all the mane six, the goofy hippie vibes of Tree Hugger, and a little bit of prankster Celestia at the end, and you have a recipe for something delightful. And the moral about how having multiple friends is acceptable is a bit more specific to the younger viewers, but it's a nice moral nonetheless. This one's a good time all around.

Score:
Entertainment: 9/10
Characters: 9/10
Themes: 8/10
Story: 8/10
Overall: 85/100
