You May Have Seen The New Characters, But You Probably Don't Know Who They Replace

There is nothing that is sacred, nothing that is left untouched, and nothing that is immune from a remake. The My Little Pony remake isn't new at all, but when you look at the old and new shows together, it's beyond upsetting.

The original My Little Pony show came out in the 80s and then there was a follow up called My Little Pony Tales in the early 90s. My Little Pony Friendship is Magic came out in 2010 and they really went all out on a new look and style of our favorite pony friends. I'm not going to lie, it's really weird to see.

You know how they used to be these adorable little ponies with that classic 80s feel? Well now... They have enormous eyes, pointy noises and are not at all what you remember.

There were a lot of characters in the 80s version, all of which were awesome. They have actually used a lot of the same characters in the new show which is weird to see. While they don't always have the same names, you can definitely see the originals in them. Whether it's their personality or their markings, it's all very obvious. Some of them end up as a few characters mixed together so they look a bit different, but they are in there somewhere!

So who's who now?  

Glory is now called Rarity

Firefly is now called Rainbow Dash

Posey is now called Fluttershy

Surprise is now called Pinkie Pie

Applejack is still Applejack

The characters all got new looks, but they are just as popular as they ever were. What do you think of the new looks? Should they have left them the way they were or are you okay with the new version?

We all remember that one kid on the playground who was slapping around a stick as though it was the most impressive thing in the universe. Sure, it probably required a decent amount of skill, but the Devil Sticks fad died out fairly quickly and we all moved on to the next great craze. But the truth is, Devil Sticks aren't just a 90s thing. They actually started over a century before they became a craze on every playground in the country.

Our parents could tolerate them, and us kids loved them! There were so many goofy skits, great
