A Dog and Pony Show is the 19th episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.


While hunting in the woods for gems for a new dress, Rarity is taken by a group of greedy Diamond Dogs and forced to find jewels for them.


A Dog and Pony Show, back when it was titled "A Dawg and Pony Show", was one of the first nine episodes initially planned for the show prior to October 2009, when by that month, the episode was put on a 3-month hiatus as it was not listed in the writing schedule.

It returned with its official title on January 20, 2010, replacing The Mark of a Cheater, a proposed episode that was first planned on November 16, 2009.

A full outline was written from January 27 through February 5, 2010, followed by the first full script from February 9 through March 9, with revisions made from March 11–17. Voice recording began on May 3, 2010.

Storyboarding began on May 17, 2010, and the completed animatic was submitted for review on August 12, 2010.

The client cut was submitted for review on November 23, 2010.

The musical score was added to the episode on December 9, 2010.

Production was officially complete on January 17, 2011.
