My Little Wombat by ursulav My Little Wombat by ursulav
I don't collect my little ponies. I do not have the time nor the manual dexterity to make modified ones, which is just as well, because the world probably doesn't need "Hasidic Jew Pony" or "Balinese Demon God Pony." (Well, it probably DOES need that, but it'll probably have to come from someone other than me.) And I couldn't collect them. Where would I put them? Balinese demon masks have a certain cachet on the wall, but it takes a panache and swagger that I lack to integrate My Little Pony with My Little Living Room.

Still, occasionally I get these urges. They correspond to going toy shopping at Christmas for my nieces, and finding myself standing raptly before the stacks of big-eyed ponies (who have gotten thinner since I was a kid, and what's up with that?) and remembering with great fondness the epic, Wagnerian battles of my youth, fought with My Little Ponies and the little plastic animals that came with the Strawberry Shortcake dolls--big, sweeping, Peter-Jackson-style epics, (at least in my head) laden with death and torture and heroism and sacrifice and disturbing sexual undertones. Because kids are freaks, man. (My blog would indicate that I am in no way the only one here, which makes me feel better. I think.)

They're all long gone now, and the plastic animals with modern Strawberry Shortcakes do not look like they'd hold up to the Charge of the Light Pony Brigade, but still, I get these flashbacks.

Which turn into doodles of My Little Wombat. This one would presumably be named "Turnip" and live in the Pretty Wombat Sparkleburrow or something.

My god, although I love your artwork I actually had to favourite this because of your hilarious and true comment. I'm tempted to repeast my favourite parts of your description, but I'm sure that would be utterly unnecessary. It really made my day, though. And I can relate to the way you played with them, all crammed with self-sacrifice and sexual undertones we didn't understand as kids. I think it's some kind of view of the world cartoons raise us to think like. Just think of all the cartoons with the damsels in distress that don't speak and look all grossly uber-curvy and get main character all drooling ("Helllllooo nurse!"). As a child that influenced me more than I'd like to admit. Anyway, sorry for the rant! Funny design!

So... yeah... I completely understand the My Little Pony war thing... I totally had a war between the Barbies and the My Little Ponies. I also ran an orphanage for the ponies... yeah. Complete with a crazy headmistress who usually beat the children for random things. I was completely disturbed. You are not alone.

Great idea! I think we need to see more of these on store shelves. I love how you did the Pony style of hairdo on it.

I used to have the My Little Ponies stampede my Barbies to death. It was only a matter of time after Olympic Gymnastics Barbie would start something while doing flips through the fields of multicolored ponies.

Not to mention teh big plastic leopard that would stalk them in the night and pick them off.. one by one...

Glad to know I wans't the only morbid little kid. *evil grin*

I believe the new theme tune is:
My little pony,
all skinny and boney...
Maybe that answers your questions about them getting thinner? ;)

Adorable! I need one to place on top of my monitor :lol:

Man, that eye is classic My Little Pony- jewel-like, half asleep. I like the turnip, too.

One of my favorite games as a kid was the unending battle between two super-powered sisters (these two gymnast Barbie dolls that had movable joints). One of the sisters was possessed on and off by this evil Sauron-like spirit guy- it was all very intricate and dramatic. Damn those were wonderful times.

Thanks for bringing those back to me........

You are FAR from the only one who did that as a child. *laughs* I still remember screaming "I'm freeee!" at the top of my lungs as I pulled off their pony clothes and leaving them "naked" all over my floor. Nudity was fun at ten years old... And it made my little brother giggle and scream along with me. Ahh... Good times...

Perhaps you should buy some ponies and give them to some little girls you know. Let them feel the joy of acting stupid and childish. I still regret selling alot of my old toys...

Cute little MLWombat, by the way. She's got the same dazed/stoned look all the old ponies had!

Brilliant, as always. Even has the doey-eyed expression and everything.

And it's always amusing when I discover I was not alone in the way I played with the MLP. I didn't have Shortcake dolls, but I had trolls--the usurped Queen promised the oft-maligned trolls equal treatment in the workforce and positions of power if they would help her overthrow her wicked pink sister and her evil Barbie advisor.

...I wonder how many other girls with MLP played similiar games...

I used to have some of the origional My Little Ponies when I was a kid.... I don't know where they went now. The poor things probably ended up going to goodwill. I miss the little buggers. T-T

I don't really like the new ones either. They may be shinier and have bigger eyes, but they aren't made of the nice huggable plastic anymore.

THAT is how you sell toys, people!
