Discord is peeved that Fluttershy isn’t taking him to the gala in an episode that aired three years ago today.
“Make New Friends But Keep Discord” is the 7th episode of the 5th season of the animated series, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Written by Natasha Levinger, it first aired on Discovery Family on May 16th, 2015.
In the episode, it’s time once again for the Grand Galloping Gala, but Discord is disappointed that Fluttershy isn’t taking him along to the event, but her new friend Tree Hugger instead. So, he takes a unusual creature known as the Smooze along, but pays more attention to Fluttershy and her new friend instead.
The Smooze is a modern take on the Smooze from the 1986 My Little Pony theatrical feature. It’s much different here, being green instead of purple and much less antagonistic. Tree Hugger, who makes her first appearance here, is voiced by Nicole Oliver–known for portraying Celestia and Cheerilee.
