Home video release history
The very first home video release of My Little Pony was the 1984/1985 VHS of "Firefly's Adventure", originally untitled in its first broadcast on syndication, but later reruns had it titled "Rescue at Midnight Castle". The other pilot special, "Escape from Catrina", was released on VHS in early 1986. Both videos were distributed by Children's Video Library.
In the late 1980s, several episodes were released on VHS by Golden Books Video. Titles include "The End of Flutter Valley", "Bright Lights", "Flight to Cloud Castle", "Glass Princess", "The Quest of the Princess Ponies", and "The Revolt of Paradise Estate / Sweet Stuff and the Treasure Hunt".
On November 9, 2004, a 4-disc DVD boxset titled "My Little Pony: The Complete First Season" was released by Rhino Entertainment. It contains 52 episodes, the last two from Season 2's "Escape from Catrina". This DVD boxset was priced at $59.95. Most episodes from this DVD boxset all used the same end credits plastering over the original ones with no closing logos attached.
Also distributed by Rhino Entertainment, the last 13 episodes from Season 2 were released on DVD in two separate titles -- "The Quest Of The Princess Ponies and Other Stories" and "Flight To Cloud Castle and Other Stories", both on April 11, 2006, with the same price of $9.98.
