Synopsis

The series follows the lives of seven young female ponies - Starlight, Sweetheart, Melody, Bright Eyes, Patch, Clover and Bon Bon. Unlike the previous depictions of The Little Ponies, the girls lived essentially as like human beings: attending school, frequenting an ice cream shop, going on dates, entering talent contests and even roller-skating. Love interests were provided in the male ponies Teddy, Ace and Lancer. At least one song is performed by the ponies in every episode.

The series is set in Coltonville, a place in Ponyland where it is populated solely by earth ponies.

She is pink with golden-yellow hair, and her cutie mark is a Yellow star with four blue stars.
Sweetheart
Voiced by: Maggie Blue O'Hara
She is the "sweetheart" of the group. She dislikes letting anyone down, but is sometimes forced into the middle of fights between her friends. She can see anyone's good nature, and knows very well that Teddy is not as bad as he seems. Sweetheart has three young siblings, two of whom are named Sugar and Peaches. She wants to be a doctor when she grows up. She is white with pink hair and her cutie mark is a big red heart, with three little orange hearts surrounding it.
Melody
Voiced by: Kelly Sheridan
The lead singer in "The Rockin' Beats," Melody is somewhat shallow, gossipy, and rather spoiled, holding her own interests higher than those of her friends. She sometimes tries to offer beauty advice to the others, and hopes to become a famous rock star. She has two young twin sisters named Jing-A-Ling and Ting-A-Ling, and her mother is a nurse. Melody is pink with sea-blue hair, and her cutie mark is a yellow microphone surrounded by several music notes.

Clover
Voiced by: Lalainia Lindbjerg
Tremendously clumsy and prone to breaking things, Clover frequently bursts into tears in dismay at her own ineptitude. Nevertheless, things generally work out for her in the end, as a result of either luck or the intervention of her friends. A very superstitious pony, she can be quite gullible. She dreams of being a ballerina, like her big sister. She is lavender purple with rose-pink hair, and her cutie mark is a clover leaf. Her surname is revealed as "Bloom" in the episode "Sister Of The Bride," the only surname mentioned in the entire series.

He is gold-colored with light blonde hair, and his cutie mark is a soccer ball.

Voiced by: Shane Meier
The quietest of the boys, Lancer is shy and fond of books. His parents are very wealthy and often away on trips.

24 "Just for Kicks" December 11, 1992 324

Starlight is in love with Ace, but he does not share the same feelings for her. She does what she can in order to win his heart, putting on beautiful accessories, but he does not even seem to notice her. Ms. Hackney helps Starlight by telling her that maybe he would like her if they would have a common interest. Soccer happens to be Ace's favorite sport, so Starlight joins the soccer team. Ace humiliates her in front of the team, and Starlight is ready to quit. She is convinced by Patch, who also is on the team, to stay on the team for the upcoming soccer match. In this match Starlight scores a magnificent goal that settles the game and leads her team to victory, which makes Ace jealous rather than impressed. Ace comes around and talks to Starlight and accepts her as a member of the team and praises her goal.

Episode Song: "Perfect Pair", sung by Starlight and divided into two parts. 
25 "Ponies in Paradise" December 18, 1992 325

Bright Eyes is going on an exchange trip to the Tropical Island. Her friends have rumours that the island has a sea monster, the inhabitants are savages that cannibalise and sacrifice little girls to the volcano when it erupts. Bright Eyes dismisses those ideas and goes to the island where stays with Sunbright family. Moki invites Bright Eyes to paddle in a canoe. Bright Eyes mistakes Papi Sunbright in a diving suit for a sea monster. Bright Eyes' fear of the superstitions is declared when the Sunbrights take her for a hike to the volcano. To the Sunbrights' surprise the volcano erupts as Bright Eyes falls into the crater. The Sunbrights rescue Bright Eyes and escape from the volcano. Bright Eyes tells the Sunbrights what her friends thought about Tropical Ponies and Papi thought Mainland Ponies could fly. Bright Eyes experiences more fun and activities with Moki before she has to leave for home.

Episode Song: "We May Be Different...", sung by Bright Eyes and Moki. 
26 "Who's Responsible" December 25, 1992 326

Bright Eyes brings to her friends' attention the current garbage pollution situation. They divide into teams to track down the responsible dumpers but they are not using their common sense and do their own littering in the process. As a result Pony River gets clogged and floods the surface. Whilst the grownups unclog the river, the girls see the trash they threw previously and fully realise their carelessness and begin cleaning up.

Episode Song: "A Lot Less Litter", sung by the girls. 

Reception

This series is generally scorned by fans of the original My Little Pony cartoons.[citation needed] Strangely, although the series revolved around the popular Hasbro toy range, the company never produced models of the three male characters or the teacher from the series, Miss Hackney. Also, much to a lot of American children's disappointment, none of the toys based on the series were ever available in the United States, even though this is where the My Little Pony brand and the show itself originated.
