'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.)

'iCarly' favorites join 'Sam & Cat' for special episode -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP

Sam-and-Cat.jpg

As if the Kids’ Choice Awards airing Saturday night wasn’t enough good TV for one night, Nickelodeon is also airing a special hour-long episode of Sam & Cat before the awards show.

In the episode, iCarly regulars show up — but it’s not a happy reunion for everyone. Nora (Danielle Morrow), the “#SuperPsycho” referred to in the episode’s title, plots revenge on Sam (Jennette McCurdy), as Nevel (Reed Alexander) tries to help Sam and Cat (Ariana Grande) escape her wrath.

“It’s just a really fun, big episode where we brought back some of the fans’ favorite characters from the past to join Sam and Cat,” showrunner Dan Schneider tells EW. “I think the audience will go nuts over it.” READ FULL STORY

Draculaura leaves for Transvylvania in 'Monster High' teaser -- EXCLUSIVE

No one likes getting left behind, especially werewolves who need to be taken care of. So when Monster High‘s Draculaura tells her werewolf boyfriend that she’s going to Transylvania to claim her title as vampire queen, he’s not thrilled. “Who will take me on walks?” Claude the werewolf whimpers. 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.

The DVD is out today. Check out the clip below:

'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:

Lightning McQueen revs his engine off-road in Pixar's new Radiator Springs short -- EXCLUSIVE

Cars 2 was an enormous box-office hit, but as Mater skipped around the globe as an oblivious player in the world of espionage, fans of the original film may have felt a little homesick for Radiator Springs. Fortunately, Lightning McQueen’s adopted hometown gets another close-up in The Radiator Springs 500 ½.

The entire cast of voices from the films, including Owen Wilson, is back for this six-minute short, which will premiere later this spring exclusively on Disney Movies Anywhere. The gang is enjoying a Founders Day celebration to honor the late Stanley when a gang of Baja racers descend on the town and challenge Lightning to a race.

“We kind of played it up like a western,” says Rob Gibbs, the Mater’s Tall Tales vet who directed the short along with Scott Morse. “These off-road racers come to town, like gunslingers looking for the hottest gunslinger in Radiator Springs, Lightning McQueen. They challenge him to a race, like someone would challenge someone to a duel.”

As you can see from the photo, Lightning isn’t one to walk (drive?) away from a challenge. While he and the Baja pros see who’s the fastest, Mater leads the rest of the gang through a leisurely Founders Day tour of Stanley’s original frontier route. “It’s kind of a contrast between how much fun the tour is and how scary and painful the racers’ journey is, because they take a right where Mater told them to take a left,” says Gibbs.

'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…

Mickey and Minnie try to cheer up Donald and Daisy in new 'Mouse' short -- EXCLUSIVE

Donald Duck and Daisy Duck are feeling blue. Why? Because “Mr. Hublot” beat out “Get a Horse!” for Best Animated Short.

Er… the specifics don’t really matter. What does matter is that Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse are determined to cheer up their pals with smiles, sunshine, and a particularly perky song. Will their efforts work? We’ll find out later this week, when Disney premieres its latest “Mickey Mouse” short — but in the meantime, get a preview of Mickey and Minnie’s antics with this exclusive clip.

'My Little Pony' clip: 'So... cute... can't... take it!' EXCLUSIVE

No, the quote above doesn’t refer to My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic itself — though you could be forgiven for thinking it did. Instead, Pinkie Pie squeals it while watching the arrival of the Breezies, a group of magical winged creatures that look sort of like a cross between mini-ponies and butterflies.

Unfortunately, the Breezies aren’t quite as carefree as their name would imply. After kind Fluttershy lends the flock a hand — er, hoof — she finds herself in with the Breezies… which is fine, until it means that she’s stuck catering to their every whim.
