:: Doubly hilarious, because some prior My Little Ponies actually looked like that. Bonus points: Cheerilee is one of the few characters directly ''named'' after an existing pony. The "Neigh Anything" story in [[ComicBook/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicIDW the comic books]] shows she did indeed wear her mane like that, along with a group of other like-minded ponies.

** In the 1993 ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS4E3ThePowerOfTheDaleks The Power of the Daleks]]'' audio reconstruction, with narration provided by the Fourth Doctor, he audibly cringes when recalling his decision to go around wearing the First Doctor's clothes, even though they no longer fit him:
--->"I looked like a clown. I will never understand why I thought this ensemble was acceptable garb for a Time Lord."
** In some of the OfficialFanSubmittedContent about the Ninth Doctor on Clive's CharacterBlog, the Ninth Doctor is reported to have been spotted at the dump throwing away frilly shirts, long scarves and a multicoloured coat in the name of '[[SoLastSeason a clear-out]]'.
** In the charity special ''[[Recap/DoctorWho2007CiNSTimeCrash Time Crash]]'', the Tenth Doctor is delighted with Five's cricket gear, but has a harder time complimenting the stick of celery. "But fair play to you; not a lot of men can carry off a decorative vegetable."
** In ''[[Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor The Day of the Doctor]]'', the Eleventh Doctor snipes at the Tenth Doctor's "sand shoes" and even remarks negatively on his taste in TARDIS décor, saying it was his "grunge phase" and telling the War Doctor that he'll grow out of it.
** In ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E1DeepBreath Deep Breath]]'', the Twelfth Doctor announces that he needs a new outfit with a really long scarf, then quickly changes his mind about the scarf because it'd look stupid - although not because the scarf itself looks stupid, but because the look is too young for him to pull off (the Fourth Doctor was about 750, and the Twelfth is over 2000).
** In ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E5TimeHeist Time Heist]]'', the Twelfth Doctor allows a psychic alien to feast on his memories, telling it, "Big scarf... bow tie... embarrassing."
