The Pony Pickers are a band consisting of "Raspberry Fluff", "Blueberry Pie", and either "Strawberry Gem" in Equestria or Derpy in the human world. They are alluded to and later appear as ponies in the IDW comics and first appear as humans in the film My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks.

Development and design

The Pony Pickers resemble Jem and the Holograms from fellow Hasbro franchise Jem (which has in turn referenced My Little Pony characters including​[​specify​]​ Rainbow Dash and Sunset Shimmer), with "Raspberry Fluff" corresponding to Kimber Benton, "Blueberry Pie" corresponding to Shana Elmsford, and "Strawberry Gem" corresponding to Jem/Jerrica Benton.

In the DVD/Blu-ray audio commentary of My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks, Derpy, "Raspberry Fluff", and "Blueberry Pie"'s appearance on stage is jokingly remarked on, with Jayson Thiessen noting in particular "I mean, guys, this is the movie right here."

"Strawberry Gem" is colored similarly to G3/G3.5 Pinkie Pie. Different versions were designed by Amy Mebberson in early 2012.[1][2]

Depiction in films

In My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks, the human Pony Pickers appear alongside Derpy as participants in the CHS Musical Showcase. Derpy plays the musical saw, "Raspberry Fluff" plays the triangle, and "Blueberry Pie" plays the cowbell. They are eliminated in the first round of the competition by the Cutie Mark Crusaders.

Depiction in comics

In My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Issue #6's story, Pinkie Pie imitates "Strawberry Gem" on pages 14 and 15.

On the Giant Robot cover RE of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Issue #24, DJ Pon-3 and Octavia Melody imitate "Strawberry Gem" and "Raspberry Fluff" respectively.

In My Little Pony: Friends Forever Issue #16's story, tickets to a Pony Pickers concert are the prize for Ponyville's junior scavenger hunt. Apple Bloom says the Pony Pickers are Applejack's favorite band on page 3, and Filthy Rich says they are his favorite band on page 21. The Pony Pickers themselves appear in concert on page 22.
