Aunt and Uncle Orange are the married Earth pony aunt and uncle of Applejack in the Apple family. They are simply called by their titles-and-shared-name Aunt Orange and Uncle Orange both in The Cutie Mark Chronicles and in Gameloft's mobile game, while the latter Orange is called by that as well as his individual name Mosely Orange in various merchandise.

Development and designs

Uncle Orange shares his mane style and coat and eye colors with S04E10 Unnamed Pegasus Stallion #1, and sometimes shares his design with S04E20 Unnamed Earth Stallion #1. Aunt Orange resembles "Primrose".

IDW comics writer Ted Anderson has stated regarding the My Little Pony Annual 2013 Equestria Girls story "Since my original plan was to retell 'The Cutie Mark Chronicles' in EqG form, I wanted to reuse the characters from AJ's story, Aunt and Uncle Orange. However, it was pointed out that AJ being in the same school as her aunt and uncle was really friggin' weird! So that was nixed"[3] and "originally I wanted aunt and uncle Orange to be the antagonists for the book, but it was pointed out that being in the same grade as your aunt and uncle was ... well, odd. So Babs and her sister took over the roles instead (even though, as others pointed out, it's also odd to have Babs be in high school before AJ)."[4]

On November 29, 2012, show writer Cindy Morrow was asked whether Babs is Aunt and Uncle Orange's daughter and replied, "not that I know of?"[5]

Depiction in the series

Season one

Aunt and Uncle Orange first appear in Applejack's flashback in The Cutie Mark Chronicles. When Applejack goes to Manehattan and is taken by her aunt and uncle, the two are amused by her country mannerisms and introduce her to the city's high society. As Applejack greets the social elite of Manehattan, Aunt Orange compliments her on her learned speech but later attempts to save face when Applejack embarrasses herself.

Season three

In Apple Family Reunion, Aunt and Uncle Orange appear at Sweet Apple Acres shortly before Raise This Barn, and they appear in the family photo at the song's end.

Season four

In Simple Ways, Uncle Orange makes a non-speaking appearance at the Ponyville train station as Twilight Sparkle and Rarity await the arrival of Trenderhoof. In Trade Ya!, Aunt and Uncle Orange make non-speaking appearances apart at the Rainbow Falls Traders Exchange. In Equestria Games, Aunt and Uncle Orange appear as spectators of the titular event at the Crystal Empire.

Season five

Aunt Orange briefly appears outside the Canterlot library in Amending Fences.

In Made in Manehattan, Aunt Orange walks at night with Babs Seed along a Manehattan street.
