My Pretty Pony ()
My Pretty Pony is a pony figurine introduced by Hasbro in that was created by illustrator Bonnie Zacherle and sculptor Charles Muenchinger.My Pretty Pony is a ten-inch-tall hard plastic figurine that can wiggle its ears, swish its tail, and wink one eye. The original My Pretty Pony was followed by My Pretty Pony and Beautiful Baby, which came with an additional smaller "baby" pony figure. This was followed by pink and yellow versions of the original that have the now-hallmark symbol on the ponies' backsides, which preceded the My Little Pony figurines.

After the relative lack of success of the My Pretty Pony toy line, Hasbro introduced six smaller and colorful versions of the toy in , sold under the title My Little Pony. The toy line led to many more merchandise under the My Little Pony brand, which later became unofficially known as the "Generation One" or "G1" of My Little Pony among collectors. This incarnation ended in in the United States, but was marketed internationally until Animations from mids (My Little Pony animated special, My Little Pony: Escape from Catrina, My Little Pony: The Movie and My Little Pony segment within My Little Pony 'n Friends anthology series) and My Little Pony Tales from accompanied the line-up.

The incarnation was marketed by Hasbro as "Friendship Garden" and designated "Generation 2" by collectors. They were manufactured in redesigned poses with jewel eyes and turning heads and are smaller, slimmer, and longer-legged than their counterparts. The line was not successful in the U.S. and was discontinued in , although it continued overseas for several years. Since the second generation was more popular in Western Europe, Hasbro continued to produce and sell them in Western Europe after Most were Earth Ponies, but a few unicorns were made internationally. Although no Pegasus Ponies were made, some adults had clip-on wings. In the early s, several unicorns with clip-on wings (called the Magic Unicorns) were made. Two baby ponies were introduced, and none of the baby ponies were sold in the United States.
In Europe, the main location was renamed Ponyland instead of Friendship Gardens, and were discontinued with the inception of the "G3" toyline in Many ponies released in the last years of the line are considered rare. A number of playsets were introduced, including a mansion and a castle. Some of the licensed merchandise released in Europe included beanbag plushes, magazines, clothing, perfume, wrapping paper and coloring books. A CD-ROM game for PC, Friendship Gardens, was also released, which involved taking care of a pony and playing games along the way.
Some "Generation Two" ponies were sold as detachable key chains, including Morning Glory, Sundance, Light Heart and Ivy. Each pony comes with a comb attached to her neck by a string. The back of the package says, "My Little Pony Logo and Pony Names are Trademarks of Hasbro Inc. Copyright " They were produced under license by FunAll Corporation and made in China.

Main article: My Little Pony: A New Generation
Hasbro announced the start of the current "Generation Five" toyline in February , with a 3D CG-animated film (produced by Entertainment One and animated by Boulder Media) and follow-up television series. Unlike previous generation changes which have generally featured a completely new set of characters, Generation Five will build upon the world and stories established in Generation Four from Friendship Is Magic, but will include a time jump as to introduce new characters and themes. According to Hasbro's Emily Thompson, vice president of global brand management for Entertainment One, the new line is aimed at Generation Alpha, which "has a higher emotional intelligence, and they expect a lot more from their entertainment"; to that end, the themes of the show will be aimed around diversity and inclusion but will still include nods and Easter eggs to the prior generation.
The film and series takes place sometime after the end of Friendship Is Magic, where "friendship and harmony have been replaced by paranoia and mistrust" and the various pony species have segregated into their own tribes. The main characters of Generation Five includes Sunny Starscout (a female earth pony), Izzy Moonbow (a female unicorn) and Hitch Trailblazer, (a male earth pony), alongside Pegasus siblings Pipp Petals and Zipp Storm.
The film was originally slated for theatrical release by Paramount Pictures, but the release was canceled due to the COVID pandemic. It was sold to Netflix, with the film's release being set for a September 24, release. Netflix also greenlit its follow-up CG-animated series, which will also debut on the streaming service. During Hasbro's Investor Event in February , Entertainment One president of family brands, Olivier Dumont, announced that a minute special was also in the works for Netflix.
My Little Pony toys drew the attention of collectors from their initial release.: Media coverage in the s reported on collectors' conventions, finding it odd that adult women are interested in My Little Pony. The My Little Pony Collectors' Convention reportedly had only one man among the attendees. When updating the toy line, Hasbro reassured collectors that it will produce My Little Pony editions for collectors.:
Friendship Is Magic fandom
Main article: My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic fandom
Despite Hasbro's target demographic of young girls and their parents, the fourth incarnation of the franchise became a cultural and Internet phenomenon as the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic television series generated an unexpected fandom, with many male fans between 13 and 35 creating a large fanbase and a multitude of creative works, fan sites, and conventions. The fanbase has adopted the name "brony", a blend of "bro" and "pony", to describe themselves. The older fanbase had come as a surprise to Hasbro and staff members involved with the show. They have appreciated and embraced the fandom, adding nods to the fans within the show and the toys. Sherilyn Connelly and others have noted that bronies alienate other fans of the franchise by focusing on the fandom itself rather than the show.:
My Little Pony is often derided for promoting consumerism. When the media adaptations of the franchise debuted, there was much controversy in the United States about television advertising targeted at children. Relaxed regulation in the s on cross-referencing between programming and commercials led to toy-based shows, such as Mattel's He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Hasbro's Transformers, G. I. Joe, and later My Little Pony 'n' Friends.: While He-Man initially drew the most controversy, My Little Pony remained controversial for many decades later, even when it was not being produced; the criticism is much more harsh and enduring than similar franchises with toy lines. Sherilyn Connelly cites examples from authors and journalists who single out My Little Pony for being tied to toys and merchandise, often putting it "first against the wall" while sparing such criticism from the aforementioned Hasbro franchises, or franchises such as Star Wars, Toy Story, and Lego.: Connelly notes that professionals who work with children, for example psychologists and librarians, often have a positive view on the franchise; psychologist John Rosemond described My Little Pony toys as "great, soothing, quiet-time toys", having none of the violence or sexuality of other toy franchises. The first animated series is often given as the worst example of a Saturday-morning cartoon, despite never airing on Saturday mornings. Even though no My Little Pony adaptation was airing on television for much of the s and no toys were being produced, it was still often brought up as a contemporary example of aggressive marketing through television.:
Connelly contends that My Little Pony is singled out not because the franchise's business methods or content standards are particularly different from other franchises', but because it is overtly girly. Replying to criticism that My Little Pony is "junk" while Star Wars stems from "integrity and creative vision", cartoonist Craig McCracken noted that both franchises can have integrity or be junk, depending on how they're produced. Character designer Chris Battle pointed out that the media adaptation of My Little Pony is seen as less valid because it is aimed at girls.: Director Lauren Faust, who was creative developer of the relaunch of the My Little Pony franchise in , wrote that she expected people who haven't even watched the animated series "to instantly label it girly, stupid, cheap, for babies or an evil corporate commercial." Faust feels that the show's femininity makes it a target of derision, regardless of its other qualities.: Ellen Seiter, professor of media studies, observed that girl's television shows are a ghettoization of girl culture, and the attacks on these shows is often aimed at their femininity.:My Little Pony has been perceived as an icon of femininity and "girlie-girls", particularly in the United Kingdom. The franchise has alternately been described as asexual and too sexual by the UK media.:

Web Video / PONIES The Anthology
PONIES The Anthology is a series of compilation videos composed of brief AMVs (or, as they are known in the fandom, PMVs) of the cartoon series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. The first one, released in and running 24 minutes, relied on profane audio clips and songs (examples include the Insane Clown Posse's "Miracles", Ludacris' "Move Bitch", the "You eat pieces of shit for breakfast?" scene from Happy Gilmore, and Christian Bale's infamous on-set rant) as well as the occasional absurd joke and extended homage. It has since been followed by two longer sequels: II (, 82 minutes) and III (, 74 minutes). The humor of II and III is derived from large doses of absurdism and Literal Mindedness, as well as many Visual Puns, Homages, and instances of fancy editing and flawless lip syncing.
Basically? Think AMV Hell, but with technicolor ponies instead of anime.
IV is only 6 minutes long and contains no PMVs whatsoever, instead consisting only of a few completely original Parody Commercials about Bronycon and an opening based on The Elder Scrolls that gets more and more ridiculous as it goes on. It ends with a note from the creators that says the stress of doing the project led them to stop production. The very end of the video hints at the release of a fifth installment, which was released in and runs 65 minutes. At Bronycon , the team premiered a few clips of footage from an upcoming sixth entry in the series, which premiered in and runs 65 minutes. The seventh entry, running around 78 minutes, premiered at Bronycon and has been announced to be the final one.
They can be found as follows:
The PONIES The Anthology series contains the following tropes:
- Abhorrent Admirer: The brony from the "A Heart for Sweetie Belle" segment of Anthology V.
- Adventure Game: Pony Quest I
- Affectionate Parody: Contains parodies of among other things Kanye West's "Power", a segment from AMV Hell 5, the Epic Sax Guy, and the Beavis and Butthead intro. And that's just Anthology I!
- Also sprach Zarathustra: Used in the A Space Odyssey parody, naturally.
- Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: "The Rainbow Connection" is rated PG for "Crude Humor, Language, And ARob Schneider Reference".
- Art Shift: A few shorts are done in the style of the work they're parodying, such as "Not Your Buddy Guy!", having Gilda and the ponies as South Park Canadians.
- The two stills "Friendship is GAR!" told of the beginning and end of the commercial break. These were done in the style of Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.
- The "Worker and Parasite" segment parodies (and is named after) another Art Shiftsequence from The Simpsons.
- Anthology II has 2 clips featuring a CG Princess Celestia.
- Anthology III has a clip from the intro to Dragon's Mare, done in Don Bluth's style, and even including a ROM check sequence.
- Three skits have been made using General Zoi's Pony Creator: The Futurama joke in Anthology II showing a pony dying from boneitis, and two bits in Anthology III where deliberately terrible OCs of the contributors partake in parodying The O.C..
- Several bits from III, V, VI, and VII were made in Source Filmmaker.
- The ponified versions of The Dead Alewives' "Dungeons and Dragons" sketch and the Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt credits are done in a somewhat chibi style.
- A couple segments from Anthology V are done in the style of Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff.
- Another segment in Anthology V features the Equestria Girls in the style of Star vs. the Forces of Evil.
- Black Comedy: The "Unicorns are falling from the sky" segment in Anthology III.
- Along with the uncut version, the original Ponies: The Anthology had a "con friendly" version that doesn't include the segments that feature cursing.
- Generally, when anthologies are premiered at conventions, heavy swears and suggestive scenes are censored, while the version found online is uncut. VII had a few of its scenes omitted from it's Bronycon premiere due to this.
- Call-Back: In Anthology, Fluttershy is shown staring at the viewer in black and white, to Koyaanisqatsi. In Anthology III, she still isand crashes into the camera.
- At the end of the bit showing Crackle singing Andrea Bocelli's "Time to Say Goodbye" in III, the duck who was shown singing "Figaro's Aria" from The Barber of Seville in II pops out of his mouth. The duck also shows up later during the second set of closing credits. In V, the duck appears again, this time singing Guillotine instead of the usual opera.
- Camera Abuse: In Anthology II, when "Rarity Wrecks the Camera":
Rarity: Of all the worst things that could happen, this is the worst. Possible. *Crash*
Twilight: Are you all right?!
- In Anthology III, Fluttershy's Koyaanisqatsi stare from the first is continued with a slow zoom in on her until the camera runs into her and breaks.
- In Anthology VI, Scootaloo crashes into the camera while launching herself up to Cloudsdale.
- Dancing Theme: Pinkie Pie dances to the Fast Food Song.
- Earth-Shattering Kaboom: The trope namer gets directly referenced in Anthology III.
- Early Installment Weirdness: The first anthology had both a unedited version and a clean version for conventions. Later antholodies would have only one version, with audiences being warned the content in the videos being PG
- End-of-Series Awareness: VII, has a number of skits aimed at the fact that it was coming out right at the end of Friendship is Magic and being premiered at the last Bronycon.
- Epic Fail: In Anthology III, Scootaloo tries to look cool. She promptly trips on a a log, flies up the side of a tree, and lands so hard she causes a giant nuclear explosion.
- She does it again in VI, but this time she tumbles into the bowling alley of the Nintendo game Wii Sports and gets a strike.
- In V, Celestia attempts to do a "Stayin' Alive" strut only to walk straight into a pole.
- Fan Vid
- Funny Background Event: During the Aqua Teen Hunger Force segment with Luna, "The Moon Rules," Lauren Faust's Alicorn avatar can be seen in a window in the background.
- In the segment immediately before that, Rainbow Dash singing Jon Lajoie's "Very Super Famous", a baby carriage in the background rolls offscreen and explodes.
- In Anthology III, at the very end of the bit with Twilight and Spike reenacting the "I am Kim Possible" vine, the Lipstick-Faced Demon randomly appears in Twilight's open door. Doubles as a Call-Back, seeing how an earlier bit involved it randomly appearing and scaring Spike, and triples as a Freeze-Frame Bonus.
- Have a Nice Death: Parodied with the Pony Quest clip.
If you had been paying attention to Pinkie's tail 20 screens ago you would have seen this coming. Oh well.
Thank you for playing Pony Quest I. We are very sorry that you are not smart enough to beat our game.
Now go read a book or something.
- Grand Finale: VII has been announce to be the final one. Indeed, the ending credits emphasize having to say goodbye, and the first Stinger is the line Anthology is Dead.
- Homage: All over the place, but most notably the first Anthology opens with a shot-for-shot (sort of) remake of the music video of Kanye West's "Power". Other examples include:
- The second of the Koyaanisqatsi segments bears an uncanny resemblance to this clip from AMV Hell 5, with Fluttershy taking Haruhi's place.
- A redux of the Beavis And Butthead opening sequence with two of the bullies from Sonic Rainboom.
- Anthology II recreates several television Title Sequences with MLP characters, including Monknote ("Twilight"), The Walking Deadnote ("The Trotting Dead") and Archer.note (with Applejack in the title role)
- The last clip before the end credits of Anthology II is a ten-minute-long, almost shot-for-shot ponified remake of some of the most iconic scenes from A Space Odyssey, in loving detail. It's also available as a standalone video.
- The first part of the credits to Anthology II mimics the credits of How to Train Your Dragon, using similar effects and Jonsí's "Sticks and Stones".
- The start of the Mitternacht segment in Anthology II (with the fade outs in beat to the song) is an homage to this AMV, which sets the song to Hellsing, Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust, and Blood: The Last Vampire.
- In the Style of Anthology I's end theme and Anthology II's game screen rework the songs "Winter Wrap Up" and "Smile, Smile, Smile" in 8-bit style.
- The end of Anthology II used, in addition to Jonsí's "Sticks and Stones", an orchestral version of "Smile, Smile, Smile".
- Leeroy Jenkins: "Twilight Jenkins."
- Lighter and Softer: Where the first Anthology had a content warning and a separate clean version, the second and third were specifically designed to stay PG
- They even bleeped a few instances of curse words. Rather strange considering, although there are no uncensored swears in dialogue, a bit in Anthology III spoofing Inferno Cop that contains Shining Armor saying in subtitles "Who the hell do you think I am? I am the motherfucking law you piece of shit!".
- Mike Nelson, Destroyer of Worlds: The third anthology features a scene where Alicorn Twilight bumps into Canterlot Castle. The top then falls off and lands on Ponyville.
- Mind Screw: Dog Spike's face shrinking accompanied by the Final Fantasy Adventure mini-boss music.
- Mondegreen: One segment in Anthology V depicts the Cutie Mark Crusaders as having "Farts Strong as Horses".
- Mood Whiplash: Going directly from a creepy montage using the Are You Afraid of the Dark? theme to Pinkie laughing like Woody Woodpecker.
- Noodle Implements: The credits of Anthology II feature such responsibilities as Hip-Hop Specialist, Executive Mad Scientist, Speech Therapist, and Executive Inspector of D'awww.
- Offscreen Crash: Rainbow Dash's thrown horseshoe in III causes, in order: glass breaking, the Wilhelm Scream, a thudding noise, a slide whistle, That Poor Cat, a crashing sound, an old-timey car horn, more glass breaking, "My leg!", an air raid siren, and a nuclear explosion.
- Old Shame: The G1 cartoon in-universe as of Anthology II, appearing in the "Ponies React To" segment and also when Applebloom sees a video of G1 Applejack.
- Anthology III continues it with a bit where the Cutie Mark Crusaders are swimming away from the Sea Ponies.
- Overly Long Gag: The "Fallin' in Love" montage in Anthology II goes through sixdifferentreiterationsuntil the whole cast of Monty Python and the Holy Grailtells them to get on with it.
- Parody Commercial: A few about halfway through Anthology II in a short break, all parodying various commercials both real and fromotherworks. The third also them, some put into a break but others scattered around. Again, they all parody variousreal andfictionalcommercials.
- The majority of IV is some original commercials about Bronycon, first one for the convention itself, parodying a typical stock scam ad, then a Dada Ad for Bronypalooza, and finally "Joey Costa's Panel Emporium", a Severely Specialized Store that sells panels for the convention.
- Pun-Based Title: Pinkie Pi.
- Rapid-Fire Comedy: As in AMV Hell, the clips featured are around thirty seconds at the longest.
- Reaction Shot: The Cutie Mark Crusaders and Angel Bunny during the "Let's Talk Dirty to the Animals" bit in Ponies the Anthology; Pound and Pumpkin Cake at the end of the segment spoofing The Room in Ponies the Anthology II.
- Real Song Theme Tune:
- Kanye West's "Power" for the first Anthology, as mentioned above.
- V uses "Moanin'," a jazz composition by Charles Mingus.
- VI uses a cover of "The Man Comes Around" by Johnny Cash.
- VII uses "Mallrats (La La La)" by The Orwells for it's intro.
- Real Trailer, Fake Movie:
- Rummage Fail: One segment in Anthology III features Pinkie Pie accidentally grabbing Rarity's fainting couch, and Rarity subsequently grabbing Pinkie's party cannon by mistake.
- Running Gag: Characters firing theirlazor. Done with Fluttershy, Pinkie (twice), Spike, and, somehow, a letter to Princess Celestia.
- Anthology II has a few:
- Princess Celestia punishing the ponies with time in the dungeon a la Adventure Time's Lemongrab.
- "U2" (See Stealth Pun below)
- Audio clips from The Rock.
- Dubstep/drum n' bass songs starring different members of the "Mane 6," complete with Screen Shake effects.
- Gummy's "Bucks Not Given" was meant to be this, however all but the first segment were cut for time.
- In addition, two segments dubbed "Rainbow WMD" in Anthology II were supposed to have several other in effect. These were cut not only for time, but quality control.
- invokedAnthology III has a couple: one involving the "Thanks, M. A. Larson" meme; the other involving Nichijou.
- invoked One series wide one seems to be extending one very short clip of a character to show him/her performing some Awesome Music. There's the duck singing "Figaro's Aria" in II, Pinkie Pie playing "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" on a flugelhorn in III, and Crackle the dragon singing "Time to Say Goodbye" (which calls back to the duck) also in III. The streak continues in V with Señor Huevos singing "Nessum Dorma".
- Soos makes three appearances in Anthology V.
- Anthology II has a few:
- Sound-Effect Bleep: In Fluttery Tate, using Fluttershy's Yay.
- Soundtrack Dissonance
- Speaking Simlish: What happens when you mix Rarity with Captain and Tenille's "Muskrat Love" in Anthology III.
- Stealth Pun:
- The Stinger: Anthology I has a sort of Screamer Prank, while Anthology II has one more PMV set to The Golden Girls theme song.
- Anthology III contains two stingers. The first is the regular credits to Friendship is Magic done in the style of Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, while the second involves Applejack in a picture depicting Bronycon
- Anthology V has Spike declaring that he hates everyone and congratulating the Crusaders on finishing V.
- Anthology VI ends with a ponified version of Leslie Nielsen's character from the movie Airplane! delivering his (slightly edited) Running Gag line: "I just want to tell you good luck. We're all counting on you."note The word "both" has been cut out.
- Anthology VII has two: Ponies dancing while the words Anthology Is Dead are superimposed over it, and the crew of Anthology VI celebrating the end of VI, with one of them saying that this celebration should be a short in Anthology VII if it ever gets made.
ANTHOLOGY 7 HAPPENED FUCK YOU
- Take That: Anthology III features a lot of jabs at the drama over"Twilicorn", including the event mentioned under Mike Nelson, Destroyer of Worlds, AKIRA characters and Pinkie Pie being terrified of it, and M.A. Larson himself undoing it.
Applejack: Son of a bitch. They also stole my sense of wonder. [Cut to Applejack looking at the movie's logo, then towards the camera] Nope.
- And one to the C&D of My Little Pony: Fighting Is Magic via a Parody Commercial for the Playstation 4. In the commercial, Applejack and Twilight play the game on an Xbox One. The console then reports it for copyright, causing the library to explode.
- Contributor Dr. Dinosaur has been confirmed to hate Rarity. As a result, he put this bit in III showing her falling from a great height and splattering on the ground while this obscure YouTube song that goes "Unicorns are falling from the sky, they won't survive, I'll let them die." plays.
- There's a non-pony one in a Freeze-Frame Bonus on the Street Fighter III parody, with Trixie's Winner screen.
