Season 4 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic was the last season of the show's First Era (2010-2014).
These three promos existed prior to the season's premiere on November 23, 2013.
When aired on the Hub Network (now Discovery Family), the first three episodes are closed-captioned by VITAC in pop-on mode, while episodes 4, 5, 14, 18, 19, 20 and 24 are done in roll-up mode (like in the second half of Season 2 and in Season 3), and the rest are done by a Canadian closed captioning organization that resembles the National Captioning Institute.
