Oh wow, nice and all that... but holiday special in October? urgh :scoots: But since christmas marketing starting earlier every year is nothing new, I guess that should had been expected. Grumpy old men like myself can always watch that episode during december. Trailer itself looked great! :raritysillyhat:

Spoiler

And so did those reindeers. Animals in that comic page TBD linked are clearly regular deers, whereas ones in the trailer were reindeers. It always grinds my gears when artists draw brown reindeers with that black nose

Yet another leak that was proven to be true.

I always suspect that the "leaks" are put out intentionally to promote the hype among Bronies. It's not a bad thing, just very sneaky! 

Speaking of leaks...Leeks!

I think it looks really exciting!! Though I wonder why they're releasing it in October.

You mean advertising Harths Warming during Nightmare Night time? Good thing that doesn’t happen here. :dry:

That was my attempt at a "Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas" reference. :twilighthat:

I would ask why this is airing in October, instead of December or even November, but, then, they aired "The Hearthbreakers" in October 2015, so no big deal, I guess.

Also, to be fair, Batman The Animated Series aired "Holiday Knights" in September 1997, so MLP isn't the only show guilty of this.

There has also been probably 4 or 5 Christmas specials now? I want to see more Halloween specials.

I did not know there are reindeer in the show, It's the first time I see one. because I've seen is in some animated movies like for example. Rudolph the red nosed reindeer

This is now the fifth time that the show has tackled Hearth's Warming but this is the first time where it will be an extra long special as opposed to the usual twenty-two minute affair that we've seen. It makes me wonder when Equestria Girls will tackle the holiday season apart from the comic book format.

I don't like your tone using the F and D words like that. Look ever since Season 5, they always starting their seasons in Spring and end in fall, so it's been impossible to put any winter theme episodes in December through February.  Please accept that and move on.

Again, I  feel compelled to put this up to explain why Christmas stuff is being put up early.

At the end, does it even matter when you watch certain holiday things. In my opinion, it really doesn't.

We should be grateful that we're getting new MLP stuff like this special no matter what time of year it is

Ummm....okay?

i’m Not complaining about the special itself but whatever. It’s just weird to air a Christmas episode that early, in a time where everyone is baking. And yes people need to stop getting ready for Christmas so damn early, we shouldn’t be seeing decorations going up as early as August and September

 Kinda miss the point I was trying to make there as well as NC's point about how it doesn't matter when you celebrate a holiday.  But how long you stay in the spirit of being a good person. 

I can see you wanting holidays to stop coming early and you have a right to your belief/opinions 

@This Whomps

And you seem to be forgetting that while it's hot summer up here in the Northern Hemisphere, it's cold in Winter in the Southern Hemisphere like Australia. So a holiday special being advertised now is actually perfect for those beneath the equator.

You know, this actually looks like a fun, interesting concept. :)

This looks interesting though I agree the October screen lends credence to the Theory Christmas keeps trying to take over other holidays.

After seeing that trailer I'm actually pretty interested in it.  Looks like a fun pair of episodes! Also Discord and Dash teaming up to get gifts sounds like a lot of fun, and and interesting pairing.

I'm excited for the new holiday special and can't wait to see another Hearth's Warming Eve themed episode. I am curious though about the deer that appear in the trailer, I didn't know MLP had deer.

This special will be a nice reprieve from the mid-season hiatus since we effectively get a new episode 2 weeks after the season ends.

It kinda makes you wonder why we didn't get a Nightmare Night special tho :huh:. Not to mention it's been featured twice I think, while HWE have been featured most seasons by now :dash:.

So far, deer have only appeared in the comic. Just ask @PathfinderCS what inspired him to make his own OC of the same name? ;)

Four deer OCs and my main sona; those comics really inspired quite a bit (though two of those OCs were designed by someone else). Also; Blackthorn is best deer still~

Hope you don't mind if I use this as the official discussion thread for the special. :)
