Rarity's Peek Behind the Boutique

  2. Fashion vs. Function (April 15, 2017)
  3. Customer Critiques (April 22, 2017)

In each episode, Rarity explains various methods in fashion non-stop for 1½ minutes. They originally aired on Discovery Family, every Saturday during primetime hours. The episodes were uploaded to YouTube on June 22, 2017.

Music Videos

At least two music videos exist: "Best Friends Until the End of Time", uploaded on June 2, 2017, and "DJ Pon-3 Rave", uploaded on February 28, 2018.

Elements of Harmony 101

This official clip was released on YouTube on July 26, 2017.
