My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic just got a whole lot funnier as Patton Oswalt is voicing a new character for the show’s mid-season premiere on July 30. And we’ve got the exclusive first look at his Quibble Pants in action in the video above.
The episode kicks off with Rainbow Dash walking the aisles of a Comic-Con of sorts — which makes sense because this clip will debut during Hasbro’s My Little Pony panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday — when she stumbles upon an impressive display for a Game of Thrones-like franchise featuring her favorite adventure hero, Daring Do. It’s pretty much “the awesomest thing ever!”
But who is this other pony appreciating the booth? After Quibble Pants compliments Rainbow Dash’s terrific taste — “This is something only a true fan can appreciate” — they introduce themselves with a hoof-shake.
As Quibble Pants goes on about the difficulty of getting their costumes just right to match the descriptions in the books, Rainbow Dash can’t help herself. She’s smitten.
Even though they share an adorable, bonding laugh, we’ll soon learn that Quibble Pants isn’t exactly a fan of Daring Do, and perhaps he and Rainbow Dash aren’t a match made in Comic-Con heaven.
My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic returns with the episode, called “Stranger Than Fan Fiction,” on Saturday, July 30 at 11:30 a.m. ET on Discovery Family. And check out the new trailer for the fourth Equestria Girls movie, My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Legends of Everfree, here.
