“Lesson Zero” is the 3rd episode of the 2nd season of the animated series, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Written by Meghan McCarthy and directed by James Wootton, it first aired on October 15th, 2011.

In the episode, Twilight Sparkle remembers that she doesn’t have a weekly lesson on friendship to report to her mentor, Princess Celestia. She tries to find one with each of her friends, but has no success, becoming increasingly worried in the process!

The episode marks a shift in the style of the series, from the friendship reports at the end of the show coming only from Twilight to any character that wishes to send one. “Lesson Zero” is considered by some fans to be among the funniest and best episodes of the series for its humorous facial expressions and other moments.
