PlotThings heat up right away when the episode opens with a giant speaker/octopus like monster causing havoc on stage.
Mauve Madison is providing live coverage of the race and mentions that, despite being about the pony-corns, there is major fashion going on off-field with the audience wearing stylish hats. Rudie strolls in and tells the girls they look fabulous, which is good, because he just booked them a gig as the ending ceremony of the equestrian show. An elderly lady with a baton takes the stage and announces herself as Phillipa Crop, a 16-time equestrian champion and judging official. She gives the audience the cue to applaud, much to their confusion. Phillipa welcomes the competitors into the arena and the girls cheer for Baby. Through the use of her binoculars, G notices one of the ponies, Night Sky, is turning evil. The pony grabs it's owner by the hat and eats it when a giant net captures it. The girls worry for Baby's saftey.
The first round begins, which is the rainbow hurdles. Baby and Pistachio take an early lead and successfully jump the first hurdle and continue to take the lead until Troy and Candy Frenzy ride up, neck to neck. Candy Frenzy begins to turn evil and bucks Troy off, eating his hat, and suffering the same fate as Night Sky. Baby manages to win the first event and the girls celebrate, but also question the actions of the pony-corns, what is happening to them that makes them turn violent? G wants to take Baby out of the race but the other girls think she's just being overprotective. Angel mentions that Colonel Spike's security guards are all over the arena. Rudy comes up with a plan to get the girls on the field. A makeshift horse costume held up by Music, Love, and Angel, is G's only chance to get to Baby. One of the guards stops them short of the field before asking to feed the pony which ends up being a problem. They manage to get away from the guard and enter the field.
The girls split up, Music is in charge of finding where the evil is coming from, so she immediately checks the little "dictator" section and questions Nofun who says only a monster would dislike pony-corns. The next event, pony rhythmic gymnastics, begins. The girls see an opportune time to get to Baby, but the spotlight shines down on them and Phillipa asks them to introduce themselves, which they do as "Tiffany and Tiffany" and gives them a ribbon to dance with. G struggles to use the ribbon but manages to meet up with Baby, who is shocked to see her out there. The girls came out to protect her from any potential danger, which Baby says that's sweet, and it's time to go jump over the lava pit.Outside, Music intimidates Yelda Googoo, one of the other riders, to admit he's behind the evil pony corns, when one of the ponies tackles him to the ground and eats his hat. Music catches Phillipa Crop using her baton as a magic wand and questions her actions. She admits that the event has become more of a fashion competition than a showcase of the pony-corns. Phillipa won't stop until all the hats have been destroyed and blasts Music with a bolt of magic, using her wand to unleash the rampant pony-corns. They charge madly towards Baby (whose wearing a funky fruit hat). G uses some spray whipped topping on her hat and taunts the pony-corns in her direction.
- Baby: He's not mean! He's just misunderstoooooooood!!
- G: Baby, what's our number one rule about monsters?
- Baby: Uhh, even a thug needs a hug?
- G: No! If it's gonna bite, stay out of sight!
- Music: Nobody puts Baby in a clawlock!
- Baby (hears bell dingdong): Ooh, it's hug-o-clock!
- Angel: Poor hats! Why is life so hard?
- Currently, this is the only episode where the title card features a pony.
- This is the second title card that has a rainbow, the previous being Game Over.
- This is also the second title card to feature Baby.
- This is the third appearance of General Nofun.
- The hat G wears during the Ponycorn race is the exact layout of their lounge tower.
- When the girls talk about the "encounters" Baby has had with previous monsters, they mention the "Abominable Snowcone", a parody of the Abominable Snowman, "Dog-zilla", a parody of Godzilla, and the "frog-neck monster" which is a parody of the Loch-Ness Monster.
- The plot about the hats could be possibly based on the Melbourne Cup Day races in Australia, where it is traditional for ostentatious hats to be worn.
