Pipsqueak, also called Pip Squeak or Pip, is a young male Earth pony from Trottingham who is first seen dressed up as a pirate for Nightmare Night in Luna Eclipsed. He also appears very briefly in Putting Your Hoof Down, running in the background. He makes a prominent return in the season four episode Twilight Time. He later appears in Slice of Life, Crusaders of the Lost Mark, The One Where Pinkie Pie Knows, The Mane Attraction, The Cutie Re-Mark - Part 2, and A Hearth's Warming Tail. He is called Pip Pinto Squeak in some merchandise.


Design and name

As his name suggests, Pipsqueak is smaller than the other ponies. His coat has patches of color on it, unlike most ponies in the show who have a solid-color coat. The equestrian term for a light coat with dark patches is pinto pattern; a show layout artist has stated that Pipsqueak is a pinto colt.

His name is spelled as "Pip Squeak" in the credits of the episodes Twilight Time and Crusaders of the Lost Mark, in Little, Brown's guidebook The Elements of Harmony, and in Gameloft's promotional material;[2][3] as "Pipsqueak" with a trademark symbol on Enterplay's trading card of him, in software including Gameloft's mobile game and the Hub Network's online game Equestrivia Challenge,[4] in Enterplay's collectible card game, and in a post by Hasbro's My Little Pony Facebook page;[5] and as "Pipsqueak," "Pip Squeak," and "Pipsqueek" in a show layout artist's different statements. His name seems to be based on the character Pip from the famous novel "Great Expectations" by English novelist Charles Dickens.

Depiction in the series

Season two

In the series, Pipsqueak first appears in Luna Eclipsed, collecting candy with a group of ponies, at Twilight Sparkle's library, wearing a pirate costume. During his first scene he speaks with a Cockney accent, but he drops the accent in later scenes. When he states it is his first Nightmare Night, Twilight asks if he means the first since he moved to Ponyville from Trottingham, and he replies that it is his first ever.

Pipsqueak joins a group of fillies chaperoned by Pinkie Pie, which follows Zecora while she tells the story of Nightmare Moon. When Princess Luna appears, he gets scared and dumps his candy in front of Nightmare Moon's statue along with the rest of the group and they all run off. The other time he is shown is when Princess Luna saves him when he falls into Applejack's water apple barrel. He is startled when Pinkie Pie says the Princess would "gobble" him and instantly runs off again. At the end of the episode, after he and several other ponies are playfully frightened by Princess Luna, he comes up to her and states that she is his favorite princess and hopes she can visit again next year.

He briefly makes a background cameo running across the marketplace in Putting Your Hoof Down.

Season four

Pipsqueak makes a return in Twilight Time, where he regains his Cockney accent. He and the other foals in his class begin doing favors for the Cutie Mark Crusaders after learning of their private lessons with Princess Twilight. Near the end, he says he would like to "learn to be a Cutie Mark Crusader" and become her friend just so he can get his classmates to do favors for him, making Twilight believe this to be the Crusaders' reason for their private lessons. In response for "[getting them] into this mess," Scootaloo takes apart his scooter to use for a failed demonstration of Twilight's lessons to prove they genuinely wanted to learn from her. When Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon tease the Crusaders for taking advantage of Twilight, he and the other foals follow suit, only to be reprimanded and dismissed by the princess, who states they have done no differently.

Season five

In season five, Pipsqueak appears in Slice of Life attending Cranky Doodle Donkey and Matilda's wedding.

In Crusaders of the Lost Mark, Pipsqueak runs for class president and enlists the Cutie Mark Crusaders to be his campaign managers. Being a more ethical candidate than Diamond Tiara, Pipsqueak wins the election, but his request for new playground equipment is denied by the school board because there wasn't enough money in the budget. When Diamond Tiara has money donated to the school, she and Pipsqueak end up on much friendlier terms.

Pip also makes a background appearance in The One Where Pinkie Pie Knows, running outside Sugarcube Corner.

Pipsqueak, along with the rest of the school ponies, meets Coloratura in The Mane Attraction. He also appears in the final group shot during Friends Are Always There For You in The Cutie Re-Mark - Part 2.

Season six

In A Hearth's Warming Tail, Pipsqueak appears in the Castle of Friendship and depicted as a background character in the storybook A Hearth's Warming Tale.
