Okay, so My Little Pony‘s Derpy Is Now “Snuggle Bubble Muffin”?


This is why I probably should just walk away quietly from the Pony arena of fandom. And yet I can’t help asking what the deal is.

First things first – WeLoveFine, who make many great geeky shirts including an array of Ponies, are branching out into vinyl collectibles based on specific artist interpretations. Breakdance Pon3 will be available with the purchase of two or more shirts or other items online. As for that other one…

Snuggle Bubble Muffin? Okay, I bought that Flash drive at Comic Con, and my receipt flat-out said “Derpy” on it, not “Fan Favorite” – meanwhile, my friend’s young daughter insists that the character’s name is Ditsy.

That is the same pony, correct? Or are there many with crazy eyes? So why is it so damn hard to rename her one time only?

It’s like Zuckuss and 4-LOM, all over again.

Except it’ll take the next generation’s equivalent of Robot Chicken to definitively tackle the subject, I suspect.
