After Pinkie meets the newest resident of Ponyville, Cranky Doodle Donkey, she's astounded to find he doesn't automatically accept her as a new friend. This leads to a series of increasingly silly stunts in an effort to befriend the foul tempered beast of burden. Is there ANYTHING Pinkie can do to win him over?
Pinkie was spot on this episode, reaffirming her element of harmony at every turn, even if her efforts aren't exactly met with enthusiasm. New character Cranky could have just as easily been named Mr. Wilson, and it would have made perfect sense.
Notable moments for me in the episode include a very Looney Tunes-esque chase scene, with Pinkie clearly playing the role of Pepe Le Pew, Derpy's rather surprising background scene grab, A little continuity nod with Rainbow Dash, and Pinkie in general displaying a ton of troll physics.
