The original six ponies by LazyJenny The original six ponies by LazyJenny
These are the ones that started it all. This year it will be 26 years ago. Hardly any pony produced after that has that same simple beauty as Snuzzle, Blossom, Bluebelle, Cotton Candy, Minty and Butterscotch. They say the first cut is the deepest. :)

Meh, pity fanarts can't be sold as prints... :P

Just to make clear; these are the six first ponies to be released as toys back in 1982. I know quite a lot about my little ponies, so I know which ones were released first and all... :shrug:

Dang, I feel old- and I'm only 14. I feel old because when I was a kid, G4 wasn't a thing. When I wanted to watch My Little Pony, THIS is what I watched. I'll always be a fan of G4, but the earliest generations will always be something special to me.

I have Minty! Surprising that none of them get into the show (except for Cotton Candy as a bit part in one episode, I've heard.)

I think Baby Blossom and Baby Cotton Candy was in some of the episodes, but not the mothers. I think that's because the tv show aired much later, and these were not so new and fancy by then. ;)

Funny how it implies the ponies are some of the most neglectful parents ever. Because the baby toys are created much later, once the babies show up you never see the adults again! Except for some reason it worked in reverse with Surprise. Maaaaybe Baby Surprise from the second special grew up to the be the Surprise in the series...

Hmm, good point.
Now I really feel like watching the old episodes. Got all nostalgic. :)

Nice to see some pics of the original ponies. They sadly don't get all the recognition they should get... :(

But anyways, its very pretty. Nice job! :D

Forget Twilight Sparkle, Applejack, and Pinkie Pie... Forget Firefly and Tirak and Megan... These six were the ones who started it all. Without them We would not have had any My Little Pony at all, whether good or bad. These six are the most deserving of respect as characters, because without them, we would be leading a very different lifestyle. This is a great peice.
