The whole thing is set in a place called Little Tokyo (hence the association) where every anthropomorphic being seems to be at least partially robotic. The show was great for it's odd and sometimes 4th wall breaking dialog. The characters often arguing with the narrator or complaining about their jobs or how 'low budget' the show was. If you want a weird comedy that almost never takes itself seriously it's worth a watch.
If you wanna really know how Rainbow Dash's mane changes from the first 3 colours of the rainbow to the last 3 at the back of her head. Just watch episode 16 of season 1 "The Sonic Rainboom". The back of her head is facing the camera when she is talking to Fluttershy in cloudsdale.
Well. The thing about RD's mane is it switches from side to side. From the cartoon, it looks like it's either flat or folded like a piece of paper. What I'm trying to do is thinking a better way of making it look natural when blending her bangs to the back of her mane (And the fact I like them to look like natural hair). Though you can see I'm struggling how to achieve such. xD
