For whatever reason, Jonathan did a search on YouTube for “My Little Pony Commercial” and look what he found! Videos of the My Little Pony commercials I was in! I had seen two of the commercials, but the waterfall one I had never seen! At the time (early ’80s), Hasbro went overseas to make these commercials because it was cheaper. We were living in Spain when Hasbro came to our neighborhood/school for auditions. My sister and I were picked that summer to shoot two different commercials (me: Snoopy Sprinkler, her: Fashions by Me). Then for the next two years, whenever Hasbro came back to shoot more commercials, I worked with them. We didn’t have *real* TV in Spain (just one channel — Armed Forces Network maybe? — on base that played reruns of General Hospital, Soul Train, Hee-Haw, and Donahue). The only way we happened to see two of the commercials is when friends of ours got a VHS tape of Saturday morning cartoons sent to them from their friends in the States. My commercials just happened to be on the tapes, so our friends gave us the tapes.
The very FIRST My Little Pony commercial
I am the very blonde little girl holding the pony in the beginnging, the one riding the bike and then the one that says, “I love you, My Little Pony” at the end. Actually, they dubbed over the last part, so that’s not my voice.
My Little Pony Dream Castle
I’m the blonde and say, “I love you, My Little Pony” at the end. My voice this time.
My Little Pony Waterfall
I’m the blonde on the left and then the one that says, “I love you, My Little Pony” at the end.
There’s another MLP commercial I was in, but I don’t see it on YouTube. It was for some pony-wear (clothes). And I was the back-up girl for this My Little Pony Sea Pony Commercial. I watched this commercial being made from the behind the scenes and I guess would have been in the commercial in the event that the girl in the tub didn’t feel well or perform??
I was in some other Hasbro commercials for lesser known toy brands, but I don’t see them on YouTube:
Snoopy Splash ‘n Play Sprinkler
Thing-a-Ding-Dings (Mr. Potato Head knock-off )
plus a couple more, I think. Crazy!
