I saw a full upload of it on Youtube, I think today was the day it was supposed to premiere?

Tabitha St Germain voiced Muffins in both the first clip she appeared in and subsequent showings, so I'm assuming she voiced her here! Germain also voiced Minty in G3, so it is possible she channeled her to voice the new Muffins.  ^.^

Good, I’m not crazy.  That one point where she giggled and the line right after just sounded exactly like Minty.

I knew it was coming out today and completely forgot about it! I saw the preview for it, I'm a little excited. The other Christmas specials were a bit underwhelming for me but when I saw The New Characters I knew I HAD to see it!!

I'll have to watch it, tomorrow maybe. No spoilers, how did this hold up compared to the other two Hearth's Warming episodes? The first one was alright but anything Christmas Carol in my opinion is overdone and makes me go "you couldn't think of anything else?". To be fair "we gotta save Christmas!" stories are overdone too, but I'm a sucker for those :biggrin:

During the uhhh Slice of Life or whatever episode with Muffins, I remember her sounding more like Wysteria iirc imo? Wysteria is voiced by Tabitha too isn't she? And Coco Pommel sounds just like G3 Rarity. :P It's a small thing but I like hearing familiar voices. (I didn't notice Zipzee and Pinkie Pie having the same voice until rewatching Princess Promenade a couple years back)

I'm not quite in the mood for holiday stuff yet, but I wanted to watch this before I got hit with too many spoilers!

This comes a bit early, doesn't it?

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

The actual plot was perfectly suitable for Christmas. Reminded me a bit of the episode with Pinkie trying to get a gift for Maude.
Rarity is such a sweetheart.
I love that they showed Starlight with Trixie, making sure she wasn't left out.

Re: too early.  I guess since the point of this special is to sell a whole line of ponies that they have to get it out early so kids will be primed to buy the toys (and probably a dvd) when they start appearing in stores.

The Marble/Mac thing was probably just a shoutout to their shippers. The writers tend to do that.

Just finished watching it. I loved it! It was so cute and heartwarming, I was grinning the whole way through.

Highlights for me were:

Overall, I enjoyed this special so much more than I thought I would. I didn't really have any complaints about it. It was cute, it was fun, and it left me really wishing Christmas wasn't so far away, lol.  ^.^

3. Derppony was allowed to speak! Even if her voice keeps changing with each appearance, it's so great to see her uncensored for a change. As someone who is both clumsy and has several mental disorders, I relate to her so much and hate how she's been forced into the background.

She was never "forced into the background". She was always a background pony and because of an animation mistake that gave her a lazy eye she was elevated by the fandom and characterized as clumsy and slow and the show writers ran with it.

Nobody "censored" a character with mental disorders. The reason why she didn't speak for a while is because Tabitha was given direction to voice her like a slow oaf and many people took offense to that. Tabitha tried to cover for them by saying she was told the character was a boy and that's why the voice was deep. But that was an obvious lie. She voiced her like a Downs stereotype and not a boy.

That's why Tabitha has done her differently over time. Nobody could decide what she should sound like.

What happened to having Christmas specials around Christmas? Bad enough I'm seeing Christmas stuff at stores mixed in with Halloween and thanksgiving.

Which is rather weird since lazy eye has nothing to do with mental disorders.
