What are all your favorite MLP references to other media, pop-culture, etc? 

My favorites are the Star Wars reference in The Return of Harmony, as well as two references to "The Shining"

I really love at the staff's attention to detail, even if people might miss it.

I like the references to the Mario and Legend of Zelda series in which we've seen pony versions of Mario, Luigi, and Link. The Mario Bros. though have only been seen in the comics as opposed to Link who did appear in the show--I forget what episode it was.

Ah yes, there he is, carting around those gems which are also a reference to the Legend of Zelda.

Thanks for the reminder.

I think I like the one with the Doctor and Roseluck behind the bushes in the Episode with the Breezies the most.

I like the artist references, too. I believe there was also a reference to that same Salvador Dali painting in The Return of Harmony (i.e. tall rabbit legs).

I like the LoZ reference in Flutter Brutter, as well as the Star Wars reference in Return of Harmony. The best one for me is also a Satr Wars one, from the comics. I think it's from Siege of the Crystal Empire, where they basically re-enact the scene where Tarkin interrogates Leia on the location of the rebel base under threat of destroying Alderaan.

The Beatles reference in "Party Pooped" was brilliant. It worked on so many levels. :lol:

As a Looney Tunes fan, I also liked Pinkie channeling Bugs Bunny in "Putting Your Hoof Down".

I think my favorites are the references to Metal Gear Solid and Trainspotting. Especially the latter, never expected a reference to Trainspotting of all things in a show like this!

I was wondering what that scene was a reference to. I thought it would be the Exorcist, but then doubted that Hasbro would let the writers do that.
