My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season 3 Animation mistakes and notes lists

Season 3 is here, this means a whole new set of mistakes to find! The animation team is getting better at avoiding them and there will be only 13 episodes, so the season set might not even be half an hour long this time.
Here, I store my notepad files of each episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic's animation mistakes. Keep in mind that the time stamps are based on my own videos, and therefore may not reflect accurately on your own.  Follow an episode's link to its current mistake list.

The process I use to find these mistakes is simple: I open the episode with Quicktime and simply view it frame-by-frame. Every mistake I find gets a time stamp, followed by a description of the mistake. Moreover, you may notice some notes with stars (*) next to them. This is not a mistake but simply a note I made. These are more common this time around, since it allows me to keep track of more things during the episodes.

I occasionally upload a My Little Bloopers video on my youtube account to point out the major mistakes. The smaller and more common ones are left here.

That being said, I'm not perfect: if you know of any Season 3 mistakes I might have missed, then comment on it here!

My Little Bloopers: Mistakes are Forever! Season 2 Set

These are 2 out of 3 freeze frames. The third one cannot be shared yet.

I'll still update the notepad files of Season 2 if need be, but otherwise Season 2 blooper videos are finally done.

My Little Bloopers: Mistakes are FOREVER! Vol. 10 Resource

I did this image on a whim, so it's not quite as strong as my previous works. There's also a strange POV going on, which is part of the experimentation here. I also tested some other brushes I don't often use, to see how to replicate some things (like clouds) without focusing too much on getting them "perfect".

By the way, I WAS going to have a second freeze frame, but it's still incomplete as of now, so I stuck to 1. Maybe it will be there for the Season Set 2.

Luna's General Work Day

A 1-month project that took me 5 months to finish due to a lack of Flash experience. I created over 95% of the content, since I couldn't find/use other users' resources.

The idea behind this comes from one of the backgrounds I made all the way back in September 2011. I decided to make a fanimation based around it, but it grew exponentially more and more as time went on. I'm satisfied that I even managed to finish this, because I was dreading the thought that it would forever stay in my folder of unfinished prototypes/projects.

I have another MlP:FiM Fanimation planned, but it won't happen anytime soon since I'm taking a break from Flash for now, along with the fact this new project will require once again for me to create over 95% of the resources.

FLA Source file:

There is no sound on the source file, because it was added in the final stages of editing through another program. Finally, "Luna's room" was the prototype name of the fanimation.
