Megan, Molly, and the Baby Ponies are just finishing up painting the inside of the Lullabye Nursery. While the paint is drying, they spend the night in Paradise Estate. In the middle of the night, Baby Heart Throb wakes up to find a ghost floating above her. She wakes up the other baby ponies. When the others don't believe her, Baby Heart Throb goes to get Megan. While she's gone, the ghost returns and the other babies try of fight it off. But when Megan arrive, the only see what looks like the aftermath of a pillow fight. Megan sends them back to bed and tells them not to believe in ghosts. Molly stays with them. But the ghost returns and Molly warns Megan and Danny and they and the Baby Ponies search the estate. Finally the ghost appears before everyone, and drives them all out of the estate, claiming that this is its home. The ghost also goes outside, but while Megan and the others are chasing it, it gets caught in a tree, which seemed impossible. The ghost transforms into a bird who introduces herself as Pluma. She beings to explain that she is a shape-shifter and the Dream Valley was once her home.
Suddenly, she drops nets on all the ponies and strings them up from the tree. But she continues her story, telling them about Squirk, a horrible sea creature who once ruled Dream Valley all the land was underwater. A cruel dictator, he forbade anyone to speak against him of they would feel the wrath of his flashstone amulet. As the water evaporated over the years, other creatures began to inhabit the land. One species was Pluma's people, the Pennas who were led by her grandfather, Ruff. Squirk refused to allow the Pennas to live there, and tries to fight them off. But Ruff stole the flashstone and broke it in two. He threw one half into the water and the other into the now-dry land which became Dream Valley. He knew Squirk could never retrieve the second half, making the first half useless. After centuries of waiting, Squirk had finally captured Ruff, who was now old and weak. Using him as a hostage, Squirk is forcing Pluma to work for him.
While the ponies free themselves, Pluma uses her powers to destroy Paradise Estate leaving only the imprint of the foundation. She digs into the ground and uncovers the one half of the flashstone. Pluma tries to restore the estate, but with only half amulet, only half the estate appears. While Pluma tries contact Squirk, Fizzy creates bubbles for Molly, Danny, Megan, and herself to float and breathe in underwater. To guide them, Megan uses her shell signal to call the Baby Sea Ponies. But Pluma had already make contact with Squirk's associate, Crank. When Squirk catches up with, he takes the amulet half and captures Pluma, Buttons, and Spike. Underwater, Fizzy and the others find and free Ruff. But before they can escape, Squirk returns and captures them as well. He holds them all in giant skull, bound with seaweed. The top jaw is held open by seaweed strands that is quickly being eaten away by turtles. They would be crushed by the skull's teeth once all the strands were gnawed through. At the same time, Squirk finally finds the other half of the amulet and uses the whole flashstone to flood Dream Valley. When Buttons and the Pennas free themselves and the others, they are too late to stop Squirk. When they make it to land, they return to Paradise Estate, Danny devises a plan to catch Squirk and Crank. They lure and trap him, and take the flashstone. Megan and Wind Whistler use it to stop the flood and banish Squirk underwater. They also restore the land and Paradise Estate, and then destroy the flashstone. Ruff and Pluma thank the ponies and return home.

"The Glass Princess"
(shown in four parts)
The Little Ponies are getting ready for the Pony 'Olympics, decorating and training for the games. Unknowingly, they are being watched from above by three flying called Raptorians, who so far, are only checking out their laundry. The Raptorians report into their Princess Porcina, a large pig with nothing better to do than admire her "rare beauty" in the mirror. They show her the clothing and suggest that she use it to repair her cloak. But Porcina wasn't satisfied since she needed magical fabric that would allow her to once again use her cloak to turn objects into glass. Meanwhile, Shady had left the practice, feeling that she didn't have what it takes to even complete one event. Molly convinces her that she did nothing wrong and to ask the others to be sure.
The Raptorians continue to spy on the ponies, this time, seeing that they possess magical powers. They suggest to Porcina that the ponies hair could be woven into a magical fabric for her cloak. She loves the idea, and orders them to capture a few ponies. Shady tries to explain her problem to Heart Throb, Gusty, and Lickety-Split, but they just don't understand that Shady needed to feel useful. Again, Molly tried to comfort her. With Molly and Shady gone, The Raptorians net the three ponies alone, and carry them back to The Black Mountains. They are seen by the Bushwoolies and they report the kidnapping to Megan and the other ponies. Megan and the Bushwoolies along with Paradise, Magic Star, and North Star set out to search for the missing ponies. When Shady hears of this, she blames herself for not being there at the time they were captured. She and Molly then see a trail of shed Bushwoolie fur and decide to follow it, hoping it will led them to the Black Mountains.
Porcina examines Heart Throb, Lickety-Split, and Gusty and order their hair to be thoroughly washed before use. She is unaware that Megan's search party had found their way in after finding Gusty's headband outside. Inside, Raptorians discover that after cutting the ponies' hair off, it grows back instantly. Not only are they then forced to stay, but they are also ordered to make Porcina's new cloak themselves. After the new cloak is made, the search party is reunited with the missing ponies. They inform them of Porcina's threat to turn Ponyland into glass. That soon comes true, as well as all the Little Ponies also being turned into glass as well, with Shrock secretly planning to turn Ponyland into the Raptorians' new kingdom.
When Molly and Shady catch up with the others, Shady comes up with the idea to make a fake cloak out of shed Bushwoolie hair and exchange it for the real one. But when they go to make the switch, they grab one, not knowing which it is. When Porcina is alerted of the ponies' escape, she threatens to turn then into glass. But as they stand before her trembling, Porcina realizes that she can't turn these living creatures into glass. Shrock takes her cloak, but Megan has the real one. They battle for the cloak, tearing it, letting the the magic loose and turning the Raptorians into glass. Porcina restores Ponyland and the Little Ponies and goes to live with the Bushwoolies as their new hair groomer.
Song lyrics from this episode
(shown in four parts)
Appearing in Ponyland is the rock 'n roll singer, Knight Shade - a little pony famous for his Moonwalk - and his band, the Shadowettes. Among Knight Shade's biggest fans are Baby Heart Throb, Baby Lofty, and Baby Half Note. After the show, the three baby ponies meet Knight Shade's personal manager, Zeb and he takes them to meet the famous Knight Shade. When he tells them that he's moving to the next stop on his tour, Knight Shade takes them on a tour of his camp. But by now it's late, and Megan and Molly go to bring them home. However, Zeb tell them that the babies have already been sent home. But back at Knight Shade's trailer, Zeb convinces the baby ponies to go with them by encouraging their musical talents. Soon, they leave to tour with Knight Shade.
Back at the Lullabye Nursery, Megan suspects that the babies were kidnapped by Knight Shade, and she, Molly, Heart Throb and Lofty form search parties.
After performing for Knight Shade and Zeb, the babies are dizzy and exhausted. When Lofty tries to fly, Baby Half Note discovers that she isn't casting a shadow, and neither are the rest of them. When they accuse Knight Shade of stealing them, they are caged by a gang of rats. Meantime, Megan's group asks around for Knight Shade in the town of Muensterville. But they are imprisoned in a large mousetrap, suspected of working with Knight Shade. Megan notices that the town's sick children also don't cast shadows, and figure that Knight Shade stole them. He decides to free them, but he and the sheriff accompany them to protect them from their cousins, the Roadies. They soon find and release the baby ponies, but still have to stop Knight Shade. They chase him down and capture him, but strangely, Knight Shade breaks down and cries, and reveals what happened. He tells them about Arabus, a creature who looks like a storm cloud, who gives Knight Shade orders to steal shadows that he uses for energy. He also tells how Zeb acquires the shadows and keeps them in his satchel. He even told them how when he was a struggling singer his hometown of Bright Valley, it was Arabus who promised his fame for a price. He had everyone's shadow stolen, including his own mother's. Knight Shade tried to back out of the deal, but was forced to stay with Arabus, or his shadow would be taken too which would mean the end of his career and no chance of restoring his home.
Baby Heart Throb convinces the other to free Knight Shade, and they agree to help him. They begin by going to Knight Shade's town, now known as Grayvaile. There, they are attacked by a mob of angry villagers. Knight Shade's mother steps and protects her son, as well as forgives him. Knight Shade and the others later confront Arabus and he tells him that he quits, despite the risks. Molly then demands everyone's shadows back. But an attempt to take the satchel fails. The ponies regroup, realizing that Arabus became weaker all the time we was chasing them. Even though they may need and army to defeat Arabus, Megan already had something in mind. They begin by asking the Grayvailians for help, but they refuse to help any friends of Knight Shade. A final battle between the Megan and the ponies and Arabus and the Roadies almost result in a victory for Arabus. But Megan's army arrives - The Flutter Ponies - who's quick moves cause Arabus to overexert himself until he is reduced to a tiny, powerless cloud. As Arabus grows smaller, the shadows leave his body and return to their owners and Greyvaile is once again Bright Valley.
Knight Shade is hailed as a hero, even though he doesn't feel he deserves it. But he's still a star and gives a concert with his new back-up singers, the Moonwalk Ponies - Baby Heart Throb, Baby Lofty, and Baby Half Note.
