'My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic': Rainbow Dash is put to the test -- EXCLUSIVE

All Rainbow Dash  really wants is to become a member of the Wonderbolts Reserves — an exclusive group of Pegasus ponies. In order to make the grade, though, she’ll have to pass a tricky entrance exam — which may end up being tougher than she thought. (Even Twilight’s foolproof study methods aren’t doing the trick; who woulda thunk?)

Can Rainbow pull herself together and ace the toughest test she’s ever taken? We’ll find out Saturday; in the meantime, here’s an exclusive clip from the episode.

'My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic': Is Applejack full of flimflam? EXCLUSIVE

Uh oh: The Flim Flam brothers are back. And this time, the Apple family may be falling under their spell.

Though Applejack remains suspicious of the shady pair in this week’s My Little Pony, Granny Smith takes a few sips of their “Cure-All Tonic” — and says, much to Applejack’s surprise, that the remedy actually worked. Could it be that the Mane Six has been wrong about the bros all along? (Yeah, probably not.)

No one likes getting left behind, especially werewolves who need to be taken care of.

Poor guy.

The clip comes from Monster High‘s latest direct-to-DVD release, Monster High: Frights, Camera, Action! The movie follows Draculaura’s trip to Transylvania, where she travels thinking she’s getting the throne — until she arrives and finds that she has a long way to go before being crowned queen.

'My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic': The Cutie Mark Crusaders take the stage -- EXCLUSIVE

All Ponyville’s a stage in the next episode of My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic, which finds Sweetie Belle making her debut as a playwright, director, and actress. (Her play, naturally, stars the rest of the Cutie Mark Crusaders as well.) The show also features costumes made by Sweetie Belle’s older sister, designer pony extraordinaire Rarity. In fact, the outfits are so stunning that they end up getting more praise than Sweetie Belle’s own work. Oh no! What’s a filly to do?

'My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic': Pinkie's sister is... no fun?! EXCLUSIVE

Huh! Didn’t see that one coming.

Saturday’s Friendship Is Magic introduces a new character to Ponyville: Maud Pie, fun-loving Pinkie Pie’s older sister. The thing is, Maud isn’t exactly what the rest of the Mane Six expect: She’s deadpan, offbeat, and altogether unlike her spirited sibling. (Think Aubrey Plaza, but… a pony.) Can the gang bond with Maud anyway? We’ll find out this weekend — but this exclusive clip from the episode doesn’t exactly bode well:

Cartoon Network reviving 'Tom & Jerry,' 'Scooby-Doo'

What’s old is new again! Cartoon Network announced a slate of new original and acquired programming, which included a revival of classics Tom and Jerry, Scooby-Doo, and Bugs Bunny.

The Tom and Jerry Show, which will preserve the feel of the original rival cat-and-mouse series but take it into high-definition, will premiere April 9 at 5:30 p.m. ET. Be Cool Scooby-Doo! is a 22-minute comedy that brings the gang back together with a modern twist as they hit the road in the Mystery Machine. Wabbit — A Looney Tunes Production will star Bugs Bunny in a compilation of shorts with well-known characters such as Yosemite Sam and Wile E. Coyote, as well as new characters.

Among the other 11 new originals and acquired programming is the network’s first-ever 10-part miniseries Over the Garden Wall, with Elijah Wood (Lord of the Rings trilogy), Collin Dean (The War at Home), and Melanie Lynskey (Two and a Half Men). The cable net also has 13 returning series.

With a renewed focus on digital, Cartoon Network will also launch later this year an initiative called Cartoon Network Anything, which will allow users to receive content (games, trivia, activities, etc.) via mobile phones and devices.

'My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic': Watch out, Apple Bloom!

Is Apple Bloom really grown up enough to take care of the farm all by herself? She certainly thinks so — and that’s exactly what she does when Granny Smith, Big Mac, and Applejack all have to leave Ponyville for the day. Unfortunately, a series of unfortunate events makes Apple Bloom even more eager to prove how grown up she is — which is how the poor pony find herself in a scary swamp all alone, with only a delivery cart to keep her company. Well, unless you count the beastie that’s lurking just out of sight…
