I Love Lucy chocolate factory scene parodied with cherries in My Little Pony

The latest episode of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, “The Last Roundup”, featured a parody of the famous chocolate factory scene from the I Love Lucy episode “Job Switching”. Instead of chocolate, the Ponies are sorting cherries that are coming by on a similar conveyor belt.

Both in I Love Lucy and My Little Pony, the rate at which the items come through on the conveyor belt is too quick, causing them to fail at their task. In the I Love Lucy episode the rate is simply too high to keep up with. In My Little Pony on the other hand, the problem occurs when 3 of the 5 ponies abandon their stations, and Applejack is made to run too quickly out of anger, causing the cherries to come by at too fast a pace.

Clips from the original I Love Lucy episode and the latest My Little Pony episode as well as more screen shots of the scenes are available below for reference.

    Thanks for that very interesting info. Now, I’ll tell you something which you may or not know. In “Secret to My Excess” when Spike becomes the rampaging Dragon that’s based on King Kong. With his (Spike’s) arm reaching for Rarity through her window, The Wonderbolts flying around him (the airplanes trying to shoot him down), and Spike climbing the mountain (Empire State Building).
