Pinny Lane and Strike are a unicorn mare and Earth pony colt who first appear in The Cutie Pox. They are not named in the show, their collective title of "BOWLER PONIES" being given in the guidebook The Elements of Harmony and "Strike" being a placeholder name, but Pinny Lane is named in merchandise.
Designs and development
Pinny Lane shares a similar color palette to S04E11 Unnamed Earth Mare #1 and—to a lesser extent—Sapphire Shores, as well as distinctive long legs, has the same mane colors and partial mane style as "Pearly Whites", and has the same cutie mark design as Big Wig and partly sometimes "Burnt Oak". Her name is a play on Penny Lane.
Depiction in the series
Pinny Lane and "Strike" first appear at the Ponyville bowling alley in the season two episode The Cutie Pox. Pinny Lane is among the ponies who watch the Cutie Mark Crusaders bowl, and she marvels at "Strike" as he gets his cutie mark.
"Strike" appears again among the Crusaders' schoolmates throughout the season four episode Twilight Time. He learns of the Crusaders' private sessions with Twilight Sparkle and wants to participate. In the episode, "Strike" is sometimes seen without a cutie mark.
Pinny Lane and "Strike" appear in the season five episode Slice of Life at the bowling alley.
