Look who crawled out of her coffin :coolpony:

Correct me if I'm wrong about this one but really interesting thing I noticed about Tell Your Tale is that it is confirmed to get slovak dub but not a czech one? This is super interesting to me and something I've seen for the 1st time. You see, us slovaks and czechs are pretty much all bilingual in the two languages because they're so similar and because we've always had close knit relationship, being one single country in the past too, however, compared to czechs, we've always been the smaller bunch of the two so very often what'd happen is that many tv shows, especially those targeted at kids, would never or very late in the run, get slovak dub cuz...well we can understand czech just fine gfjuy.

Also, the movie itself didn't have a lot of promotion here ( gotta wonder whether the kids here were confused where these ponies are coming from ghjkm ), I've seen some slovak dubs on youtube but I'm...not entirely sure whether the full lenght movie can be watched in slovak :blink: I'd need to check Netfix again, as I said...not very promoted. So Tell Your Tale being in slovak first and foremost...very interesting. And not that I'm complaining because I've seen the movie in czech too and the dub is god awful.

Apologies for going on a rant it's just very very unusual thing to happen!

As for the webepisodes themselves, imo, they're alrighty, little too fast paced for my liking but what can ya do with 5 min runtime? I still adore most characters, Pipp as always remains my favorite, the only qualm I have is that Zipp there is written how I was afraid she'd be written for the movie, very grumpy and sarcastic, she's pretty unlikeable compared to her movie self.

Great colors but that human face is way creepy.

I'm getting hammered in the face with that awful Steve Universe/ThunderCats Go/Uncle Grandpa style that's been plaguing American animation. Gag me! I'm just grateful the toys don't resemble this. Yet anyway.
You said it! I get why they're doing it but I'd like them to not. And their legs. They made them look like human legs instead of pony legs, it's so wrong. It's more like what people draw when they've never drawn a horse before. On top of just the obvious chubby cheeks, I didn't like that when they did that in the G4 MLP Movie, and I definitely don't like it here.

Tell Your Tale series has started on the MLP YouTube channel. Here’s the direct link to the first four webisodes:




Thank you for posting this though, Skybreeze! Like the art style or not I've already planned to give this a chance, and I'd totally missed these.

No screw that! Little kids draw horses better then that! Why does Hasbro hate horses? This is the last gen I'm buying until Hasbro puts the pony back into My Little Pony.

I just watched the webisodes and they weren’t actually that bad. The only downside is the style but I was fine with it when I began watching. I’m not really a fan of the CalArts(?) style though. Maybe it would have happened eventually like the CGI happened eventually
The side profiles were usually weird looking but they seemed fine here

Thanks for the update again! :satisfied:
Are there more episodes coming, does anyone know?

i'm not totally on board the G5 train, but i will say i like the design they went for on Zipp here. she's got more angular/taller? proportions & to me, she just looks the best designed for Tell Your Tale. feels fitting to her character. everyone else just looks a bit awkward lol

I agree with the Zipp design especially with how they drew her hair
Everybody’s hooves felt too tiny for me though apart from Izzy’s, I liked her clunky square hooves

I watched a bit of one episode of Tell Your Tale. The style isn't quite as jarring as I expected it to be, but I do think there was one thing very weird about it, and that's that the style, animation, facial expressions, and even voice acting gave off the vibe of adult animation even though obviously this isn't. Am I alone in thinking this or am I crazy? There's a "look" that cartoons like Family Guy, Star Trek Lower Decks, etc. have and for some reason this reminded me of that... but in MLP format. It's very bizarre. I'm probably just crazy.

I think it's that smug eyelids half down expression that gets me.

That right there. The expression he has. It reminds me of those cartoons and I'm just not a fan.

Just got done watching them. I'm not a fan of the art, but I did find myself chuckling at some of it. The stories are okay, but I do agree with what Virelai said about the artwork. I don't like any of the shows with this style. I'm trying to be supportive because I don't wanna see MY Little Pony ending. But I wish they would look like real ponies.

The Shining Adventures Collection arrived, and I've finally realized my dream of owning a 6-inch Hitch! If Rockin' Ranger Hitch doesn't show up sometime soon I'm half-tempted to try flocking this one's mane myself.

Maybe I've just burned my eyes out from playing 100+ hours of RF5 the past few weeks, but I'm preeeeeeeetty sure they made Hitch's and Sprout's molds taller than the rest? If it's intentional I adore that little detail.

I really hope that these characters not only appear in the Yotube Show but also in the regular 3D show too. And of course that they do make them into toys (they did show up in those compact playsets but I want regular size figurines too).
