Our latest commission is for none other than the Flim Flam Brothers. The world famous cider selling, swigging, and swindling extraordinaires!

Spectacular work, but the super cider 6000 episode they seemed to be just competitors for the apple family as their cider machine certainly had its uses.
In the end to me it just showed how short sight ponyville was, as either Mayor Mare or Stinking Rich could have purchase the machine to start another business for the town or the Apple family could have bought it them selves and encouraged the brothers to become legitimate business ponies.

They really need a personality adjustment.  A bullet to the head aught to do it.

Oh! I bought this at Comic-Con last year! One of three things I have ever bought for myself at a con. It's a beautiful print.

I wasn't fond of the idea, because they weren't really antagonists. In fact it was Granny and Applejack who basically said "You don't do things the same exact way we do, so take your stupid help elsewhere." There was no real reason to reject the help these guys were offering other than pride (and perhaps greed if the offer of payment from the bros. is taken into account). And that's rather counter to the series' morals, and even some of the ones used in the episode.

The episode tried to use a 'quality over quantity' thing. But it was more showing that arrogance in pride leads to an unnecessary competition that wasted everyone's time, when instead the Apples could've put aside their pride and worked with the newcomers to create an overall vastly increased output.

I wouldn't mind seeing them in some other slice-of-life story, maybe in some other part of Equestria.
