Story | Dec 5, 2013 | 7:11 PM"My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic" (The Hub, Saturdays; Shout Factory home video). I had neglected this candy-colored gem of a show, whose fourth season began in November, until the latest DVD, "A Pony For Every Season," fell through the mail slot recently and captured my mind. Developed by Lauren Faust, lately collaborating with husband Craig McCracken on Disney Channel's "Wander Over Yonder," it's the latest iteration of a franchise that began as a collection of pony dolls with brushable manes and tails, back in the early 1980s -- like the Hub, it is a product of Hasbro, the toy company -- and smarter and sassier and more aesthetically sophisticated than anything I have said so far might lead you to think. The last regular cartoon series based on the toy (there was the odd video adventure in between), "My Little Pony Tales" in 1992, was essentially a tween sitcom in which the ponies went to school, hung out in a soda shop, roller-skated, wore leg warmers, crushed on pony boys and more or less behaved like human girls of that day and age.
