Season 1 - Episode 28 - Aired Oct 22, 1986

With Megan captured, Danny takes the lead and suggests they find a way to destroy Grogar's magic. Forget-Me-Not remembers that the bell he wears around his neck glowed when he used his magic in Tambelon. Everyone decides that the bell is his power source and they can take it from him if they can make him leave the city. They manage to do this with the help of Danny's tape recorder and one of Masquerade's disguises, but Grogar is too strong for them and madanges to capture a few more ponies while the others run away. Megan and the prisoners try to find another way out, but there are no hidden passages in their new cell that lead to the city streets. They mention the bell again, which Paradise thinks could have been an important part of the legend of Tambelon but isn't quite sure of. Elsewhere, Danny and the others capture a Troggle who was deserting and wants to lead them to their friends before Grogar banishes them to the Realm of Mists that night. They decide to trust him and let him lead them into the city, but they are all ambushed by Grogar and Bray and sent to prison with the others.

#4 - Return of Tambelon (4)

Season 1 - Episode 29 - Aired Oct 23, 1986

Everybody's captured now, including the Moochick and the baby ponies, so Grogar starts the spell that will send Tambelon and the ponies into the Realm of Mists. He then orders the Troggles to celebrate the victory, threatening to banish them with the ponies if they don't. He also imprisons the Troggle who tried to help the ponies escape. The ponies now know he was telling the truth and agree to give him and his oppressed people a place to live in Ponyland if they escape. Forget-Me-Not finds a crack in the ceiling where there is fresh air coming through. Fizzy and Buttons manage to use their magic and some disgusting prison food to make the crack big enough to fly through. Megan, North Star, and Forget-Me-Not find Bray and take his keys so they can unlock the cell. The ponies run out into the streets during the celebration and tell the Troggles they can stop pretending and come with them to freedom. Bray tells Grogar that everyone is running away - with minutes to go before the banishing spell goes into effect, Grogar goes outside and pins them down with his magic. Something Spike says reminds Paradise that Grogar's power souce will be destroyed if the old bell in the passage is rung. Forget-Me-Not tricks Grogar into opening the gates just as Megan and North Star ring the bell. Everyone except Grogar and Bray makes it out of the city just before it vanishes. The next day the ponies discuss how Grogar won't be able to make a new bell for centuries without the help of the Troggles, who are now ready to live a life of freedom in Ponyland.

During a game of hide and seek, Baby Ribbon cheats by winking out. But the others get worried when she doesn't wink back in the second time she does this. Ribbon winks out in order to find her and winds up in a strange fog-filled city where she is chased by shadowy creatures. Worried about their friends, the ponies rush to Megan, who tells them to spread the word to the other unicorns not to wink out. Only Buttons gets the message in time - during a search mission, she's forced to wink out to avoid being crushed by an avalanche, and she disappears too. That night, Megan has a dream in which Ribbon says the word Tambelon as an imposing ram closes in on them. Paradise remembers that it's the name of a lost city that last appeared 500 years ago. Its ruler Grogar tried to conquer Ponyland, but was somehow banished to the Realm of Mists. Paradise correctly guesses that Tambelon is slowly reappearing in Ponyland and that the unicorns got caught inside. In the morning, everyone is about to form more search parties when a storm hits and Tambelon reappears. The castle gates go down and the Troggles, led by Grogar's right-hand donkey Bray, invade Dream Valley and capture most of the ponies, Grundles, and Bushwoolies. Grogar is pleased with his conquest and vows that soon he'll rule all of Ponyland.

Shady and Molly reveal themselves to their friends; Shady then devises a plan to make a fake cloak out of shed Bushwoolie hair so that they can exchange it for Porcina's cloak and reverse the spell. Everything goes fine until the switch has to be made: the lights go out, the cloaks get mixed up, and Megan is forced to guess which one is real when the Raptorians arrive. Porcina tries to turn the intruders into glass but cannot bring herself to cast the spell – these beings are more real to her that the poor souls she transformed through her mirror. Her hesitation causes the Raptorians to turn on her and steal her cloak so that they can cast the spell themselves. But it turns out Megan took the right cloak after all. This brings about a tug-of-war that tears the cloak, releases its magic, and turns the Raptorians into glass. Princess Porcina repents her old ways and restores Ponyland and the Little Ponies before moving in with the Bushwoolies as their new hair groomer.
