The adult ponies are invited to a party over the weekend, in the New Borns honour, at the palace. The baby ponies are upset they can’t go so they decide to try to get some attention by rolling on a ball balanced on top of each other. They fall off and Heart Throb asks why they’re doing this which is because the New Borns are getting all the attention. Ribbon reminds them they love them as much as the New Borns before they make their way to the palace. The adult ponies are given a large room to sleep in and a girl is in their room looking for her lost brother from two years ago. The guard knocks the door and she runs off just vanishing into a room. During a meal for them the Duchess orders the New Borns that she claims are tired, to be taken to the ponies rooms. Heart Throb mentions the girl they saw earlier in their room but the Duchess tells her she must have been seeing things, even though the Duchess knows it’s a woman called Suzette whom she had locked in a room before this meal. The baby ponies decide to go to the palace and crash the party. The adult ponies heading back to their room discover the New Born twins are gone and then they get arrested. Locked in a cell they meet Prince Phillip and he explains the Duchess’ is his cook. Buttons steals the keys off of the sleeping guard’s belt and frees them. The baby ponies are then let in to the Palace by the woman named Suzette. The Duchess’ little girl is using the New Borns as toys or pets for herself seeing this the babies feel bad as they were hoping for it to happen to the New Borns. They take on the guards who are also keeping the Prince and adult ponies busy. The Prince and Suzette meet back up and find the baby ponies winning their fight against the guards. They go to save the New Borns from the girl and the prince gets the guards to choose who they want to serve, him or the Duchess. The guards pick the Prince and he thanks the little ponies for getting his kingdom back for him.
When the Newborn Twins receive a special invitation to visit royalty, the First Tooth Ponies get jealous and plot revenge. When they realize the Newborn Twins are in danger, will the First Tooth Ponies go to their rescue?

- Those Newborn Twins
Ooh, those Newborn Twins!
They really make me mad!
Baby North Star:
If they met up with monsters
I'd be only too glad!
Ooh, those Newborn brats!
They drive me up a wall - quack!
If they were chased by lightning
I wouldn't cry at all
Don't be silly - they're just babies!
You're just talking out of spite!
You don't wanna see them hurt?
Why not? It sure would serve them right!
Ooh, those Newborn Twins
I'd have no regrets
If someone bought them collars
And turned them into pets!
Then you'd see us breaking into grins
Laughing and sneering
Joking and cheering
Sneering...at those Newborn Twins!
