Join us for MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC on Saturday, July 30 at 11:30a/10:30c with a special episode featuring guest star Patton Oswalt.
In the premiere episode, Stranger Than Fan Fiction, Rainbow Dash attends the Daring Do Convention in Manehattan and meets a pony named Quibble Pants (voiced by Patton Oswalt) who despises Daring Do as much as she loves it. The two of them get wrapped up in a real life Daring Do adventure and must settle their differences if they have any chance of surviving the convention.
