Comic Book: My Little Pony
My Little Pony refers to two different comics based on the original My Little Pony comics that ran in the UK during The Eighties.

The first comic, simply called My Little Pony, came out in 1985. An issue came out every two weeks. The next comic, My Little Pony and Friends (not to be confused with the American cartoon of the same name), came out two years later. It was twice the price and came out every two months however it had more pages.

For the most part the comics were more Slice of Life themed then the western cartoons and Molly and Danny weren't in the comicsnote . Many characters also have very different personalties from My Little Pony 'n Friends. It was not uncommon to see illustrated stories in the comics. The comics typically used vector artwork instead of original drawings for most characters.

There have been various Spiritual Successors for the generations afterwards. IDW's comics based on My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic have their own page.

These comics contain examples of:

  • Cute Little Fangs: Spike has bucked teeth.
  • The Ditz: Wind Whistler.
  • Everything's Better with Princesses: Majesty and the other princesses.
  • Eye Scream: The Twinkle-Eyed Ponies were enslaved by a gemstone loving wizard, who forced them to labor in the darkness digging out luminescent gemstones, which basically drove them blind. When the wizard was kicked down a ravine, an explosion occurred and drove shards of gemstones into each Twinkle-Eyed Pony's eye-sockets, giving them their trademark eyes.
  • The Klutz: Applejack.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Dragons lack wings and are shown to come in different colors. Baby dragons are historically shown to be pets of ponies.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: The "baby" versions of the ponies. In this continuity they're essentially younger clones of their mothers created from looking through a magical mirror.
