My Little Pony: Pinkie Pie Party is a spin-off animated series of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It is not to be confused with the DVD of the same name. The series follows the adventures of Pinkie Pie, with each episode usually taking place during the events of the original series.
Unlike in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Pinkie Pie appears in every episode of MLP: P3 (the acronyms for Pinkie Pie Party), whereas in FiM, every character in the Mane Six has made absences from time to time.
- Pinkie Pie: The main protagonist of the series. An Earth pony with a pink body and magenta mane and tail. She has a funny demeanor, is very talkative, and a bit air-headed. She also enjoys singing and playing pranks. Her spirit represents the element of laughter.
- Fluttershy: A Pegasus pony with a yellow body and a pink mane and tail. She is very shy and quiet around others most of the time but has a great love for animals and caring for them. Her spirit represents the element of kindness.
- Twilight Sparkle: An Alicorn (originally unicorn) pony with a light violet body and an indigo mane and tail with pink and purple streaks. She studies extensively and has exceptional magical ability. Her spirit represents the element of magic.
- Rainbow Dash: An athletic Pegasus pony with a sky blue body and a multicolored mane and tail. Very brave and bold, she can also be mischievous and proud. She has the ability of speed and clearing the sky of clouds. Her spirit represents the element of loyalty.
- Applejack: An athletic and strong Earth pony with an orange body and blonde mane and tail. She is down-to-Earth and dependable, always willing to help anyone in any matter. Applejack comes from a large family of ponies with apple-related names who manage farms, apple orchards and businesses, etc. She wears a brown stetson hat. Her spirit represents the element of honesty.
- Rarity: A unicorn pony with a white body and a purple mane and tail. She is very stylish and interested in fashion. Although sometimes desiring to be the center of attention, she is always there to help her friends. Her spirit represents the element of generosity.
- Spike: A young, purple and green dragon. He is Twilight's assistant and good friend. He has an ostensibly-secret crush on Rarity. He prefers hanging out with ponies rather than his own kind.
There are 26 episodes in each season. In episodes of MLP: FiM where Pinkie was mostly or completely absent, these episodes usually take place with the other characters instead. For example, in Pinkie's Slumber Party, those who appeared in Look Before You Sleep are all absent, so this episode would star Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy but not Twilight, Applejack or Rarity. Also, in episodes revolving around Pinkie Pie, if there are no absences of any member of the Mane Six, the episode will take place mostly with them instead of Pinkie.
The first episode starts with Pinkie Pie leaving her family's rock farm and moves in with Mr. and Mrs. Cake to Sugarcube Corner. Her amazing cooking skills also earn her a job of working at the sweet shop.
