Oh Good. I need something to lift me spirits with all this Derpy stuff today.
Oh yeah! Best news I've heard all day. Just what we need to sort of cool down from the whole Derpy debacle.
THIS IS GOING TO BE THE BEST EPISODE OUT OF ANY EPISODE IN ANY SHOW EVER.
Indian Pones. Too sweet
I already have high expectations for this episode. :3
Yeah something worth smiling over.
Holy crap, Indiana Jones reference. We got a badass episode over here.
It Does Look Like Its goin to be EPIC
Can't wait. Also is that supposed to be RBD? Like is she reading a book and then imagining herself as the protagonist? Or is it just a recolor
Woohoo can't wait for my Dashie episode <3
...Indian Jones ref and subversion in the span of 5 seconds. This is gonna be so AWESOME!
YEAH! My faith in ponies has been restored.
I was sad reading the Derpy rumors :/But now I am HAPPEH:D
So slow to load... painful.Now that it's finally loaded... lol Dat Indiana Jones reference.
well it's obviously just something dash's reading, still I love indiana jones and think it's going to be a great episode
Oh yes. Oh yes indeed.
Recolors are now canon!
@Peter NooneYeah, probably her imagining herself as the protagonist, considering the episode is about her reading and all.
@Peter Noone The "phew" was different than a regular RBD "phew"...
I get the distinct feeling this is what will be shown when Dash reads books, short references should be awesome.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?1 WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?!!! I MUST KNOW......oh, right. I'm gonna find out on Saturday. I predict the MLP team is gonna outdo themselves once again.
*cut to Twilight* ...but in Latin "20% More Awesome" starts with an X...!Looks pretty good at anyrates, can't wait to see the actual set up and the like :D
WAIT. Could it be? IT IS! Indiana lol.
CODY SIMPSONFEBUARY 16THE RAVE
I love how much creative liberty this show has taken. It's simply amazing.Plus, this only foreshadows how absolutely AWESOME this episode is going to be.
Dat Rainbow Dash hair recolor.
:D Thank you for this. Totally perked me up after that whole Derpy thing.
Now you got me all excited!!!
Oh yes, this looks EXCITING!Also, looks like broken wings is confirmed? Huh, interesting! I wonder what's gonna happen to cause that.
OH MY GOD CANT WAIT NEED TO SEE THE EPISODE NOW!!!!!!
OHMYGOSHOHMYGOSHOHMYGOSHOHMYGOSHOHMYGOSHOHMYGOSHOHMYGOSHOHMYGOSHOHMYGOSHOHMYGOSHOHMYGOSHOHMYGOSHOHMYGOSHOHMYGOSHOHMYGOSHOHMYGOSHcannot WAIT! <3
I was upset about Derpy... but this made my day :D
Yep. Saturday morning shall be a great morning. Rainbow Dash as Indy, and crepes
<3 Freaking badass! I cant wait to see!
Oh! And a compass rose cutie mark! Haha, nifty!
OMG Rainbow Dash is the best character in any TV show ever. It's official for me now.
If there's an Equestrian Indiana Jones, than theremust be...*gasp*...An Equestrian George Lucas!Dear Celestia! somebody stop him before he ruins the series!
we need something to take our minds of the raping our community mascot received
Wait... people actually care about a background character so much that their day is darkened by news that it may be name changed? I can't see what the problem is in the first place. Derpy/Ditsy who cares? I could see this kind of uproar happening over changing the name of Pinkie Pie to Bluey Chew or something silly like that, not over a simple background pony though. Oh well. I'll just be happy regardless. Awesome clip, can't wait for this episode. =D
I'm guessing this is an adventure in one of the books Rainbow reads.
I notice she's suffering from Wing Damage in that clip... at least, that's what's all bandaged up, even in the Indiana Jones fantasy.I guess those things aren't indestructible after all.
"So if this is like Indiana Jones, she's gonna swap it with some weight, right?">Just takes it."Or not."
If it really is RBD placing herself in the books (self insert? XD), it only makes me wonder what other references will be spouted out!
Obviously Dash is reading a story which is why the ponies hair is Dash's but grey. This is going to be SO AWESOME! EEEEEEEEEE
Has the Previous My Little Pony Generations ever reference movies and books?
Anyone remember that one cartoon that they used as a break between Garfield episodes? They had a character that did this all the time. This is still gonna be a lot of fun to watch, especially since they have Rainbow Dash in that role. Looks like we're in for 6 more weeks of awesome.
Oh wow, I mean I was looking forward to this but this is going to be amazing.I like that Dash is imagining herself as the protagonist in the story, she's such a cutie.
The advertisement was longer than the clip, but it was still epic!
Cruelty is the realization that I still need to wait 36 hours to see the rest of this
Indiana Jones in My Little Pony? This show never stops being amazing!
Okay, now that was amusing. And it looks like I'm not the only one who thought Rainbow Dash while watching the clip.
Somethings wrong with the video, it keeps showing me this Indian Jones/MLP crossover instead of the Rainbow Dash episode clip.
Indiana Jones reference YES YES YES YES
This is going to be so amazing.
Well now we can guess why she's in the hospital in the first place.
LOVE IT!! Rainbow envisioning herself as the main character in the book! Awesome.
OK so now we have an Indian Jones Refrense in MLP, What's next? Anypony know?
Now Rainbow just needs to find a book on Transformersor Doctor Whoor Haruhi Suzimayaor Percy Jacksonor The Hunger Games:D
OH SMOOZUS CHRIST
Indiana Jones? Holy f*** this is going to win so hard!
This looks very promising.
Cue the giant bolder!
Nice bit of zelda-esque music in the clip.
@Flutterfan No that is the right clip look at the Pony and compare her to Rainbow Dash
I see all these comments saying about how awesome and daring this reference is. But I dont know of an animated TV show that has not made this reference. To me it shows stagnation more than anything epic.
I think,this was a flash back part,i could just,tell,ya know?
Yeah, I left the Derpy fiasco for dinner and came back to this. I'm happy now.
Putting dash in the books, THATS how they do it. Was wondering how they would get 20 minutes of show from this premise. Must say, looking forward to it. Then again, when am i not looking forward to a new ep?
She gets all nervous and mentally prepares herself just to grab it off the stand. xD
I didn't even watch the clip yet and I'm like "what the..."
Oh man, what a reference! This episode is going to be great.
the animators have chosen, wisely.
I never really got the trope of books "transporting you to a magical world." because that isn't what happens. You just kind watch someone else do interesting stuff. Unless, of course, the book is written in second person.
I never look at the spoilers, but was convinced by the post. And by Celestia this is gonna be great.
You can't stay mad at hasbro for too long. LOL Dashie Jones must be one of the best things I've ever seen.
w00t! This shall be an epic episode!
@CityFlyer502Seriosuly. I'm fine with whatever they do short of them refusing to show derpy in the background. this viudeo is just what I need to escape the drama
Yay, reading IS fun. I knew it!
It's true, this reference is nothing new. The best movie ever, Weird Al's 'UHF', started this way too. Doesn't mean it's not awesome. I'm stoked for this episode however it goes.
Can't wait for the episode, im really hoping for more character development from RD, she might actually become one of my favorites!That's something considering I completely lost all respect for her in both May the Best Pet Win and Mare do Well, but the last episodes have shown that she can do something else than be obnoxious as hell!
YES! I was hoping that they would do a "venture-into-the-book" sort of thing and they are! Woo-hoo!Also, it looks like Dash has an injury on her right wing. The same one she injured in MTBPW. Hmm, do I smell a continuity nod?
@Biomechanical Yeah, that may be true, but it's kinda a tradition now. Almost all of my favorite cartoons have referenced Indy in some way or another (usually with the boulder-in-a-cave). I sort of like to think that the Rainbow family has a rich and varied history.That and I'm glad Dash isn't without any relatives at all anymore. Now all we need is to see Flutters' family.
Best Crusade EVER! /)^3^(\
We called the dog Dash
So based off the obvious character, Rainbow's wing is broken. Didn't that happen back in "May The Best Pet Win!"?
Rainbow Dash as Indiana Jones. It's as if I'm writing these episodes.I CAN'T FUCKING WAIT
@vcrmaster Yeah, so I just remembered what this episode is supposed to be about. I really hope that this is Dash's family history, and not a magical book she is given that induces hallucinations and delusions of being in 80s movies.
This is gonna be awesome!!!
@ziosify Percy Jackson In MLP? I would approve since I Love mythology
@vcrmasterI think this isn't a magical book, it's just dash's imagination. I mean that's kind of what this episode is about. note thought hat even in her minds eye, her wings are still hurt though.
Note the broken wing...In other news, INDIANA FRICKIN JONES!
If this is coming from the episode where Dashie reads a book in the hospital, I have a feeling she was reading and Indiana Jones book, and this is how it played out in her head
I want this episoooooode
@Coolbluemight not have been fully broken there. maybe just sprained and would be fine on its own.
@The Tniker Hm, it seems I replied to the wrong person in my attempt to respond to you. I do apologize for my social awkwardness seeping into the internet
OK, to start off with, advertisement SUCKED LARGE TESTICLES. First time I tried to play, it started 5 seconds in, and any attempt to pause, or figure out what was happening opened a new tab. I thought I was being rickrolled there for a minute. Then opened without imbed, and was able to close the stupid ad, but it was still painful (the X was really tiny)OK, that said, I've watched this a few times. I agree this is for this week's episode, it's a self insert. However, a few really neat things I noticed about the clip...1) I think the compass symbol cutie mark is totally awesome. Reminds me of the Indiana Jones map flying / driving scenes. 2) Every animal pictogram she jumps on is a Rat. Indiana's father was the one that hated rats. Indiana himself hated snakes, which makes the clip even more interesting. THERE ARE NO SNAKES. Some squiggles along the edges that might first look like snakes, but when it pulls back more, it looks more like drawing remnants.3) I'm not going to overgeneralise this even more.. but is every symbol on that board she's jumping across a Chinese zodiac symbol? I'm probably wrong, with the no snakes...
At first I was like D:But then I was like /)^3^(\
"But in the Latin alphabet, Jehovah begins with an 'I'.""I…""…Oh. Good work."Definitely looking forward to this. And if they throw in a Reading Rainbow reference, I can die happy.
Old Scootaloo :P
@vcrmaster Well mosty what I was asking myself was 'What will MLP use next as a refernce?' I'm really hopeing that the choose Something that I enjoyed when I was younger
Here I was thinking I was excited to see an episode starring RBD, my fav pony.After watching this clip I realized that was just some lame, watered down parody of excitement. /)^3^(\
*Video Ends*Cue MusicI don't always watch teaser videos, but when I do, I prefer ones that make me excited like a filly on her first Grand Galloping Gala.*watched video again*"Hey, her wing... OH SHI-"You need to look at this
@Adrian Brony I know that. I can always hope though. I was simply exaggerating about the "magical book", as it is a common trope on TV and in movies for reading a story or journal to cause a visible flashback of said story or journal, similar to a hallucination.
Inb4 giant round boulder?
YEEEEEEESS! Can't wait for this episode!
@vcrmastereither way. I guess I'm okay with that though. I don't mind it when they do something that's been done before, as long as they do it well.
Yes, this is good.
.....I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED RIGHT NOW
@Biomechanical I apologize, I seem to have replied to you, while I was actually trying to reply to The Tniker.But yes, I too hope for more references. Someday I'll look back nostalgically on our little Ponies, and recall how they made me nostalgic about other things.
synopsis: how will dash come to know the world of reading? that's a very good questiontrailer: this just raises further questions!
Figures Dash would read something that's FREAKING EPIC!!!
Note that if Indiana Pones had the use of her wings, she could've flown right over the pressure plate trap and made the sequence about 20% less cool. I think the DM didn't want the player bypassing their brilliant trap and added a "rocks fall" moment.... ;)Anyway, as a huge, gigantic literary nerd, I hope there are some appropriately punny pony-themed reworkings of classic titles!
I do say, this will be an episode to remember.On another note, I love how she's just like "hmm... Fuck it. *grap"
I wonder if this will just end up being a clip show of parodies. Hopefully done well. Definitely could go either way.
ALL OF MY YES!!!! I LOVE RAINBOW DASH
now I want to watch this episode again after I watch it
Now if only the episodes didn't air at 3 AM for me. Least that means when I get up they are already uploaded. Looking forward to Saturday even more now. As this looks to be another epic episode.As Dashie Jones, so awesome. Loved Indiana Jones while growing up.
@4d4f5c2a-0f40-11e1-b2f5-000bcdcb8a73they have already done something old in a different and interesting way. I have never actually seen them subvert the "careful grab" bit.usually it goes "walk up, snatch it, 'ZOMGBOULDER!" or "spend a lot of time carefully looking at it, carefully grab it and the reap goes off anyway."This one had all the examination, but then followed by "eh, screw it."
Butterfly in the skyI can go twice as highTake a lookIt's in a bookA Reading RAINBOW-DASH!!!!!
totally looks like rainbow. probably is her reading the book.
@JparmHAHAHAAnyway...if this clip is any indication....BRACE YOURSELVES THE REFERENCES ARE COMING!!!
whilst typing my last comment I realized that if theres to bea LeVar Burton cameo (which sadly I doubt)I could die happy...Well there still needs to be the SMOOZE!!!
Indiana Dash in the Temple of the Sapphire Anubis! but it WOULD be 20% cooler if this WAS a Part of the Dash Family History!
Before the clip, there was an ad for an MTV show called "I just want my pants back." Retarded. It made me lose faith in humanity yet again. Worth it, though. That clip was awesome. I predict that little Tomb Raider segment will be one of Dash's reading adventures.
HOLY FUSD$%$#^#%fgji!!! Okay.... ok. I'm calm now. But this looks amazing. I was watching, squealing in my chair, and then remembered that I'm going to be out of town on Saturday and Sunday. Celestia, what am I going to do?!
IMAGINAAAAAAATIOOOOOON!!! Or something!From the looks of it, this ep is going to be a giant shoutout to literary and movie geeks everywhere. In other words, it's probably going to have God knows how many references in it. Somebody's gonna have to make a list. LOL
>.< why isn't showing for me D:
indiana pony? all my bits
Damn son! This looks awesome.Can't wait!
Looks like by neglecting to set a replacement weight, she chose... Poorly...
are we gonna get Dashie in different situations like this through out the episode? Hope so!
....I squee'd in the metro....
@MEMJ0123TiVo that shit, son.
I'm so happy right now! Like, serious over-reaction that's totally justified! I...... KNOW that this is going to be even better than Lesson Zero!@pipsiscool"OMG Rainbow Dash is the best character in any TV show ever. It's official for me now." I agree completely!Kids, reading is awesome. Rainbow Dash, universal expert on awesomeness, states that reading is an important part of an awesome lifestyle.
REMBER IN HEBREW JEHOVA BEGINS WITH AN I, Also Asps very dangerous, you go first.
hopefully its a good dash episode unlike mare do well
Only the penitent pony shall pass...
This is going to be one of the best Rainbow Dash episodes ever.
WHO HERE IS HOPEING FOR A LORD OF THE RINGS PONY REFERANCE!?!?
OK. This is my new clip to convince skeptics the show isn't girly frilly froo-froo nonsense.
LEgally that ad shouldn't be playing...
Referencing 2 different Indiana Jones movies in one clip...awsome
Tom the rock in place of the boulder would be pretty hilarious
indiana jane pony cool :3
Indiana ponies crossover fic, someone write it NAOOOOOOOOOOO!
I cannot hold all of the joy that is pouring from my eyeballs right now.Dashie episode AND an Indiana Jones reference?CAN THIS EPISODE GET ANY MORE EPIC?
This seems to be a fantasy of Dash's. Not hair design, overall shape, and eye color.
A giant boulder better fall from the ceiling in the next scene. It just has to.
Then the giant parasprite ball starts chasing her.
Well I have a new favorite pony, even if it is just a figment of Rainbow Dash's imagination.
Look like it's going to be a good episode. Probablely see a lot of movie references.
Indiana Dash.goddamn this show is awesome.
Run, Dashiana Jones!
Any pony have a youtube link for this? My New Tablet has failed to load the first video I've ever tried to watch.../)-_-
I am so gonna be excited
@JparmYES! I was just talking about this the other day with another brony XD. Yeah, what if by some chance they got LeVar Burton do do a cameo voiceover in this (as unlikely as it is)But then I was thinking:1) Studio B has done a bunch of stuff for PBS before2) They got John DeLancie to be in their show, why not LeVar Burton?lol well, still unlikely, but not absolutely out of the realm of possibilityIt would totally make my day if there was a reference to Reading Rainbow in this week's episode!An episode about Rainbow Dash AND about reading? There's no way they AREN'T aware of that potential reference lol
FCKING AWESOMEmore oldie movies references that we all seem to love, in this case Indiana Jhones FTW.now if only studio B would make an episode focused on Dashie trying out for the wonderbolts with a few "top gun" references along the way, then i could finally say that this show has revived all my faith in animations today.
Rainbow Dash Jones... totally awesome.
I was gonna think this episode was gonna be a bore, but seeing Indipony Jones just upped my spirits
INDY PONY IS NEW BEST PONY!
Reminds me of the opening scene of Weird Al's movie, "UHF."That was great.
Where is my jaw?!
Hah! Man, it's been years since I saw a cartoon do a good old "Raiders" riff. Of course, it's been years since I avidly watched a children's cartoon. Not as many years as you might think, though.
Oh. Em. Gee.
anyone else notice the bandages disappear?
*Crosses fingers and hopes the episode has Artimis Fowl or Pendragon Adventures references*
What happens...WHAT HAPPENS!!!jk.
OH MY GOOOOOODDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!!!
this is going to be http://ganton3.deviantart.com/art/INSTANT-RAINBOWDASH-Flash-211317101?q=boost%3Apopular%20gallery%3Aganton3%2F30883490&qo=8
I MUST SEE THE NEW EPISODE NOWW!
I do love how they don't just use a classic cinema scene, but take the opportunity to pull a fast one on all of us who have seen the original and are expectantly waiting for her to swap it with something. I love the writers of this show.
And then a little dude says "why is it like Temple Run?"And then I just facepalm.
I wonder why the Hub always gives these exclusives clips to these random websites. Wired now Movieweb. Just give them directly to EQD!!
They should have gave her a fedora, then she really look like Indiana Jones. Still this episode looks sweet.
>this>what's under thisIt was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
Indy Dashie <3Also, Might be referencing UHF (If you haven't seen it, you totally should XD)
Are those wings painted on?
My body's not ready...My body's not ready...My body's not ready...My body's not ready...My body's not ready...My body's not ready...My body's not ready...My body's not ready...My body's not ready......I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
I really like the yellow's pony name. :)
@The TnikerJust because it's been done before doesn't mean it can't be done again, as long as it's done well.
let's see what-OH SWEET BLACK JESUSTHE FILM GRAIN, DID YA'LL PEEP DA FILM GRAINCINEMATIC LIKE A BAWSSSSSSSSSS
I can just see Scootaloo yelling at someone, "You call her Rainbow Dash, lady!"I loved what Indiana Dash did with the idol after assessing it like Indy did in the movie.
