This is genuinely terrifying.
I was going to ask if the actual show was as terrifying as EIT makes it out to be, but I just watched an unedited episode on Youtube, and as it so happens - yes. Yes it is terrifying.
I'm not sure if Dog With a Blog had an episode where Avery, petrified with fear and much to Stan's delight, is forced to sleep with a dying camel who wants to eat her.
I think the pervading atmosphere of horror in this show has got to do with the fact that it's an English kid's programme. English children's telly was (and for all I know still is) astonishingly creepy.
Thanks for the link Homie! But I think Chatterhappy Ponies was kind of like a proto-Look Around You, so EIT editing it out is just EIT runnign out of things.
I think it was legit; to the best of my knowledge, nobody from Look Around You was involved in this, and IMDB gives no indication that it was meant to be taken as satire.
Remember: Britain was the place that gave us things like Trapdoor, the horrifying claymation cartoon
Knightmare, the horrifying gameshow about a child-murdering dungeon
and of course, Jim'll Fix It, the quirky variety programme about rape.
It's interesting! Joanna Brookes was in In The Loop, which was Armando Iannucci, which was pretty much the news version of Look Around You.. maybe it was like Doggie Tales, a Troma movie I think Troma legitimately wanted to make for kids and dog lovers everywhere, or maybe that's just the way my mind works. Who knows in this crazy world?

There are talking ponies like you've never seen before who are lots of fun
Children everywhere grow to love them more and more, they're their number one
There's a million stories to be told of the things that they've done
And they're going to share them all with you, so come along

There's a character in this called Horrid Harriet, and another one called Mrs. Horrid, and they're not the same person.
