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

-edit-
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...

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.

Really nice to see the old ponies around here! =) Btw, maybe you might help me. I was trying to find out which was the original name of a pegazus pony that was pink and had hair in three colours (pink, blue and.... purple I think). Some of them were kinda "renamed" while dubbed here.

I could help you if you remember the symbol on the pony's butt. :)

juliozzy Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2013
Hmmm I really don't remember, I think there were multiple symbols that were blue (but I can be wrong) =( As far as I know it was a pony that was only on cartoons. At least I never had seen that on toys in Brazil, otherwise I would have pestered my parents to gift me one!

I love the first generation of MLP out of all of them. MLP FiM killed my childhood. All the rabid bronies and pagasisters are like ALL OTHER GENS SUCK ASS, G4 BETEST!

Absolutely astounding work, this is amazing. :hug:

Thank you! :)
I'm happy that FiM has put the spotlight back on MLP, but the fans can be a bit crazy. I'm not really a "brony" myself, as I've only seen two episodes of the series, and I don't think I'll watch much more than that...
