While it's not going to eclipse my current #1 TyT ep, this one actually does come fairly close! Now, some of that is bias. I adore Pipp and her character just absolutely SHINES here!

Even removing the bias, however, shows some great character growth and helps to give her added context in her role as a social media influencer. Overall; extremely enoyable!

PIPP PIPP HOORAY!

Yeah I liked this one, fourth favorite, I thought she was going to interact with the pippsqueaks undercover as well I could only imagine...lol  and that her glitter beard was gonna play into it some how 

the only thing I have to add is the actual glitter lipstick looks awful on those fillies BUT they did get featured in a Pipp Livestream with credit for the idea...

(I do really love AJ Bridels voice, it feels like her singing voice was made for cartoons or something..., especially Make Your Mark is an absolute banger, but just the thought that yeah maybe Sunny and Izzy seemed like the singers in A New Generation, but it was seen in advance that Pipp would get her chance to shine as she was always intended to do...)

A really great Pipp-isode once more! It was really funny seeing her with the bubble beard for most of the episode and it was great seeing her go undercover to get the scoop on what her fans like. :wub:

Another pretty simple episode, but so enjoyable all the same. Not my favorite Pipp episode but it definitely a good one still!

I am definitely a Pippsqueak too!! I love Pipp Petals!! :squee:

So this was interesting. It definitely wasn't bad at all, but I felt like it was more appealing to the target audience, or which I felt pretty out of that sphere.

All the emphasis on the little girly stuff and lipstick and all that reminded me of something.

Anecdote time:

https://www.facebook.com/ClubTabby/photos/?ref=page_internal (example photos)

There was this place near where I live called Club Tabby, and it was a venue for little girls to have birthday parties and the like, and it would have all the sort of stuff you'd see in this episode. Girls would make girly lipsticky stuff, nail stuff, what have you. It's completely not my taste being a 36 year old dude. (who just to happens to be into pony stuff, but that's beside the point) I feel like the topic of this episode really catered to them, and would appeal the best to them, and I wasn't the most absolutely into this as others might be.

I do appreciate Pipp's attitude and personality to all this, though. She does the right things.

enjoyable ep in the mane. Pipp getting on with her fans makes for some sweet interaction, and Sunny had a genuinely good side-role I thought with the idea. 

also liked the little bit of pony sass "you're not Pipp, you have a beard!"

the cutie mark magic combining with the glitter was interesting. This show is building some strange cutie mark lore...

Pipp does have a very promising career as a mad scientist what with what she was doing during the early moments of this episode. And then we have that beard of hers. No doubt it's going to become all the rage seeing as she knows her way around social media.

It kinds of reminds me of Rainbow Dash spying on her fanclub though

woah I didn't even make the connection! I guess the story went a completely different way with it though - Pipp was genuinely for her fans from the start, rather than using them to harvest attention and boost her ego

Another good episode, and also a much better representation of what a Pipp episode should be about than Mane Melody and Clip Trot, though not as good as Maretime Bay Day 2.0. Regardless, there is definitely something weirdly entertaining about seeing Pipp with a beard. I also like how there's more to her character than just being a social media star, she also plays the role of a "good-natured entrepreneur" (which is what I wrote her as in my story) who wants to create better products for her fans.

Pipp Petals should have a new show called "Undercover Influencer". 

Also, was this the first short that didn't feature all five of the main ponies? 

No, that was Lost in Translation with only Sunny and Hitch appearing. And with Hitch not appearing in this episode and Sunny not appearing in One Trick Pony, no main character has been in every episode of Tell Your Tale.

I'd call this one a good episode---a bit better than the last one, I feel like.

Seeing Pipp experimenting with magical products added a new layer to her character; she's not just a shallow pop star, but actually knows enough science/magic to experiment with new beauty products!  Having their cutie mark magic add to the product was a nice twist, but it does leave me wondering how she'll be able to mass-produce it...

Okay this one was a lot better than the last one. It was funny and I loved it! Reminds me a lot of when my aunt used to come over to my house and we'd do some fun games now and then, I don't know why but it reminded me a lot of that. Pipp with a beard is funny.

This one is fine, and Pipp is definitely still my second favourite Mane Five pony.  However, it's also very much an episode for the target audience that does very little for me.  At least it's not super cringe, so I'll give it that.

This episode is okay. The fact that the fillies wore colors that didn't match them is really relatable. It surprises me that Pipp didn't fuss about that.

I still wonder if the Pippsqueaks will just be Pipp's main girls or if they will be fleshed out as characters.

They already have cutie marks, so are they going to help other ponies with their cutie marks or are they going to do something else?

I kind of wish that they would try to be junior activists or junior marketers for the Mane 5. This would show an example of how kids are working in activism or marketing.

Discount CMCs confirmed?  I don't know about that, and I don't know if I want the series to try that, as I find it hasn't worked out great when Mane Five characters have tried too hard to emulate FiM characters.  I think the series is far better off when it doesn't try to be FiM, as first off, it can't, and secondly, it does have the ability to provide unique moments we wouldn't have had in the arguably superior series, and therefore be something with its own identity that at least has something to offer in its own right, even if it rarely elevates it past something worth watching once and moving on.
