It's a fun, breezy episode.
It reminds me a bit of the energy in The Last Roundup, where they keep gags and character beats coming at you fast. That style works really well for this show.

Plus, I'd have a hard time pinning this down as a Rainbow, Rarity or Twilight episode – and that's a good thing. They haven't used an A/B/C story structure in a long, long time and I missed it. The show is better when it juggles multiple character arcs as opposed to focusing on one pony and using the others for exposition or killing time.
As a longtime fan of both the Monty Python series', and the Zucker/Abrahams/Zucker movies, I heartily agree!
