My Little Pony: Season 4 Animation mistakes and notes lists

NOTE Currently this is on hiatus. I may finish it eventually, but I might also never get back to it. Feel free to check what I found up until then though.

Season 4 is over, which means it is time to work on a 4 Season Set! 
The animation team is getting even better at avoiding mistakes, so keep a sharp eye out for them.

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.

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 4 mistakes I might have missed, then comment on it here!

  1. Alright! Time to start sending you mistakes for the collection!
    In Testing testing 123, when Twilight is lecturing Rainbow in front of the chalkboard, there's a shot where Twilight is speaking but her lips are not moving. It's not hard to miss if you're looking for it.

  12. I don't know if you caught this mistake for the Season 4 Set, but I just thought I'd let you know that in the episode Twilight's Kingdom Part 2, in the frame just before Tirek sends Princess Celestia, Princess Luna, and Princess Cadance to Tartarus, Luna gets her cutie mark back.

  13. I forgot these two in my previous comment. In "Three's a Crowd", when Pinkie Pie is offering to take care of Discord, Discord's deer antler and goat horn reverse. Also,in "Twilight's Kingdom, Part 1", when the princesses are singing 'You'll Play Your Part', when Luna sings 'We understand you wanting more," her upper eyelash on her right eye looks weird/different.

  17. In the "Bats" episode, during the song (unfortunately I don't have the exact time at the moment) right before Applejack sings, "They don't care about nada," an apple which has been sucked dry falls onto the ground and rolls along. During the end of the first shot of this apple, it's lying down horizontally, but in the shot right after it, it's standing up vertically.

    There's one more that I can think of right now. During "Three's a Crowd" when Discord is singing the very end of his song and the room is sort of a whirlpool, the bed is backwards. It's in the wrong position than when Discord lies down on it during the very next shot. If I think of anymore I'll let you know and I'm sorry if I wasted your time.

  18. Sorry about this but I forgot one. In "Three's a Crowd" it starts at about 11:15 and lasts for a couple seconds, (via Netflix, but now it won't tell me how many minutes into the episode I am) Discord essentially makes his legs and arms disappear so he can act like a snake and coil up around the health bubble that Cadense had put up, but as Twilight and Cadense start to leave, Discord goes onto the ground and one of his arms suddenly reappears. I'm sorry about the lack of specifics on these.

  25. I know this isn't in my little pony episodes but in my little pony equstria girls I don't know if I spelled it right but anyway when twilight comes back from the portal on two legs when you see rainbowdash the first time when twilight comes back rainbow dashes wings are alicorn wings

  26. In "Three's a Crowd", Discord's wings and arms switch places several times in the episode. He switches wings while he is talking to Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, and Applejack in the beginning, when he sneezes on Rarity and Applejack, and after Princess Cadance and Twilight land with Discord to get the flower for his blue flue. When Discord gives Pinkie Pie the red balloon, his arms switch places - he gives her the balloon with his right hand, which should be the lion arm, but it is actually the bird arm that is displayed. And both his wings and his arms switch when he goes in his thinking tree near the end of the episode.

  27. In "Rainbow Falls", when Fleetfoot tells Rainbow Dash she join join the Wonderbolts' relay team permanently, her wing right is angled differently and slightly higher than Spitfire's.

    ReplyDelete
  28. In Flight to the finish, Diamond tiara and silver spoon are making fun of scootaloo and Sliver spoon has two ears at one side.

    ReplyDelete
  29. On season 4 episode 17 when scootalo says yeah she's making the pie deliveries her left top eyelashes disappear

    ReplyDelete
  30. In "Twilight's Kingdom, Part 2", in the frames where Celestia, Luna, and Cadance are standing in a triangle formation and about to give Twilight their Alicorn magic, both Cadance and Luna gain Celestia's elaborate Pegasus wings. In other words, both Luna and Cadance's wings, who used to be designed like Twilight's not look like Celestia's in this frame. They go back to their original design when they activate the magic.

    1. Also when Cadance has Celestia's wings her eyes are blue like her cutie mark.

  31. In "Twilight's Kingdom Part 2", when Twilight is singing "Wanna do all that I can" during "You'll Play Your Part", her left eyelash glitches into her left eye.

  32. There are times when Twilight's alicorn wings are seen as regular pegasus wings.It happens nearly in every S4 episode.In Three's a crowd after Twilight says YES her wings are pegasus wings and at the end when she's flying down to Cadence her wings are pegasi wings again.They return to normal after a few frames .It happens in Princess a Twilight Sparkle part 2,when she's about to take her friends elements.
    Other errors:
    In Twilight's Kingdom part 1 in You'll play your part when the three princesses are flying up in the sky there are about 2 frames where Cadence's tail is going through her wings.
    In Pinkie Pride in Make a wish there's a shot where Rarity is a alicorn.
    In Pinkie Apple Pie in the beginning credits it says PINKY Apple Pie instead of Pinkie.

  33. I don't know if this technically counts as a mistake, but it involves the picture of Pinkie's first party in Pinkie Pride. Technically in Season 1 Episode 23 The Cutie Mark Chronicles (which the picture in Pinkie Pride references) Maud does not appear at all in the entire sequence, but in the picture of Pinkie's first party Maud is in the picture even though she's actually not at the actual party as far as we know. Again, not sure if that technically counts as a mistake, but I'd thought I'd share.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm not sure if anyone else has already mentioned this, but in Episode 14 "Filli Vanilli" during the scene after the theme song, Fluttershy's wings really never make an appearance, and they've essentially just vanished throughout the whole scene.

  35. First off, I'm sorry if it seems like I'm nagging at all or being at all annoying. That's not my intention at all. If I am, please just let me know. Secondly, I just wanted to tell you about a couple little mistakes but didn't know how to say them exactly so I got the images from Netflix and adjusted them to show the mistakes. I just thought it would be clearer that way. Also, with the times on the pics, it's a rough estimate of the time based on where it was on Netflix at the time, but these are all from Episode 18 "Trade Ya!"

    (My computer won't let me save images like 18:11 so instead on the images it says 18-11. And I know that on the description it says what the difference is, but I thought I should clarify)
    18:11 - The different colored circles show the three different ponies that show up in the same scene and look almost exactly the same. the only difference is that they're flipped.
    19:31 - 3 background ponies have blank flanks.
    19:31 - 7 different ponies from what I can see all reappear in the same sequence.
    20:06 - Ironically enough the same 3 ponies as in 19:31 still all have blank flanks.
    20:06: Only one pony duplicate this time around from what I can see.

    Again, sorry if I'm coming off as annoying at all. Hope these help! Have a nice day!

  36. I know you said that it would be on hiatus and you might never get back to it but I was wondering what the status was because me and my family love to watch and laugh at the bloopers. I hope you decide to bring back the series. It's such a good series and I know I'm not the only one missing it.
    Not trying to bug or pressure you at all.
