    So recently I found a VHS of the old series of MLP (the one that's a sequel to rescue at midnight castle)
    It looks a little something like these.

    Only it's not those. I don't have any actual pics.
    It has three episodes;
    The Magic Coins
    The Would Be Dragonslayer
    and Spike's Search.
    also it's copyrighted Hasbro inc. 1987.

    I'm looking forward to watching it, mostly out of curiosity and respect for the older gens.

    hmm maybe you would want to watch them online the vhs maybe worth something, and watching them may damage them.

    Maybe. It looks to be in really good nick considering it's been in a garage for celestia knows how long. Looking at the actual tape, it may be too late. Looks like someone got about halfway through watching it.

    I miss video tapes, so much more reliable and sturdier than DVDs.

    What I'm most interested in are the adverts they'll show before the actual video starts. Always a strange way of rediscovering things you forgot about.

    Oh man, Bright Lights...

    My sister had that one. And watching it with her probably influenced me to become a Brony.

    I had a box of Betamax videos from when we first had a video recorder. Many have 'My Little Pony' written on them. I am sure they would be on DVD by now? I got a couple of 'Girls World' DVDs for Jem, and they have G1 ponies on there too.

    Well, you can always buy a VHS and record DVDs onto them for later viewing :)

    Fun fact: almost no DVDs seem to come with macrovision these days so you won't even need a "signal cleaner".

    Surely only if there was also a player to go with the tapes.

    I used to have the bumper 3-hour MLP VHS that had Rescue at Midnight Castle, Excape From Catrina, Bright Lights, The Return of Tambelon, The Pony Puppy, The Magic Coins, Spike's Search, The Revolt of Paradise Estate and a ton of other stories on it.

    I watched that thing to death!!

    Bonus points if it still works. 10x if you still use it.

    MLP G1 Season 1 is on dvd now, but the VHS version of Rescue *At* midnight castle, (not the later Rescue *From* Midnight Castle) has a longer song and extra bits that haven't been seen since it aired. The DVD has the TV version which is missing a song.
