Howdy, everypony! I know most of you have noticed some of these, but for those who haven't: FYI, sorry about the layout, I can't do anything about it...1. Pinkie Pie's original design was Surprise (right) and she was later changed to Pinkie Pie. The very first word Pinkie says in the whole series is "Surprise!" (No, gasping doesn't count as talking.)
2. Rarity is just G1 Sparkler without pink in her mane and with a white coat.
3.We all know about this one... Pinkie Pie makes a G3 face in Too Many Pinkie Pies.
4. In Hearts and Hooves Day, the Prince and Princess in the love poison story have the same names and Royal status as these two G2 ponies.
5.Twilight Sparkle's mother, Twilight Velvet, is a gray coated version of G1 and G2 Twilight, which was also Twilight Sparkle's original design.
6. A female Wonderbolt has Surprise's color scheme and is a Pegasus as well.
7. Snails is based off of G1 Baby Squirmy.
8. Lyra Heartstrings is based off of G3 Bee Bop. Notice the cutie mark.
9. Trixie has the exact same color scheme as Bee Bop.
10. G3 Applejack appears as G4 Applejack's cousin and as a stallion as A.J.'s Uncle.
11. Flower Wishes is identical to G3 Spring Fever.
