My Little Pony: A Very Minty Christmas is a direct-to-video animated film produced by SD Entertainment, and released on October 25, 2005 by Paramount Home Entertainment. It marks the first film appearance of the titular toy franchise since their big-screen debut in 1986. The DVD includes a bonus episode, Dancing in the Clouds, which is first released on video bundled with Star Catcher in 2004.
A Very Minty Christmas was made available on hubworld.com (a successor of Hasbro's MonkeyBarTV website), alongside My Little Pony: The Princess Promenade and My Little Pony Crystal Princess: The Runaway Rainbow but were later removed from the site.
The popularity of Friendship Is Magic has increased demand for reissues of the original My Little Pony titles. Shout! Factory has now begun to produce DVD reissues of some of these titles, including A Very Minty Christmas.
The film made its television debut on Discovery Family on December 13, 2014.
