Mr. Waddle is a background Earth pony who appears in several episodes of the show. He is an elderly pony with a light gray coat, a dark gray combed-over mane of several strands of hair, large, thick-rimmed round glasses, varying neckwear, liver spots, and a cutie mark of a bubble pipe. He shares his design with "Pipe Down".


Development

Mr. Waddle was designed by My Little Pony Friendship is Magic character designer Rebecca Dart, who stated in an interview[1] that she designed a bespectacled old male pony, and mentioned on Twitter[2] that the pony in question was designed as "Incidental Senior Pony #3". According to Tabitha St. Germain on Twitter, Mr. Waddle may have been voiced by an animator.

Mr. Waddle first appears in the season two remastered title sequence, riding the train with "Geri" and "Chelsea Porcelain". He makes his proper series debut in The Mysterious Mare Do Well wearing a bow tie. When a balcony that he and other elderly ponies are standing on breaks and falls, they're saved by Rainbow Dash.

In Hearts and Hooves Day, Mr. Waddle is seen at a funeral service during The Perfect Stallion, wearing a clerical collar. As Sweetie Belle sings about finding a very special somepony for Cheerilee, she remarks about Mr. Waddle "this one's too old". He later appears in a wide shot of Ponyville wearing his original bow tie while standing with "Chelsea Porcelain".

Waddle appears again at the beginning of A Friend in Deed, wearing a large, polka dotted bow tie. When Pinkie Pie passes him by, she compliments his bow tie and he blushes. He appears in A Canterlot Wedding - Part 2 during This Day Aria, Part 1, again wearing his original bow tie while standing next to "Chelsea Porcelain" in the wedding audience.

Mr. Waddle appears as part of the crowd outside the Golden Oak Library in Too Many Pinkie Pies, and he also appears in Sleepless in Ponyville.

Mr. Waddle also appears in Pinkie Pride during The Super Duper Party Pony, in Leap of Faith, in Trade Ya!, and in Equestria Games.
