MY LITTLE PONY - FLY MY MINI PONY
Fly my mini pony
My Little Pony ("Fly my mini pony" in the Italian traposition) is an animated TV series for children, produced by SunBow Production and created by screenwriters Michael Charles Hill and Carla Conway. Originally the project started as part of a program (My Little Pony 'n friends), but after the great success of the Hasbro toy line, it was decided to separate it from the rest of the group and make it an autonomous series. In Italy there were two productions, the first from 1986 to 1992 and the second, with only 26 episodes, in the early nineties. Today Italy 1 (who already dealt with the previous television broadcast) decided to re-propose this cartoon to starting August 29, 2011. These are 52 episodes, for a total of 2 seasons, which will be aired from Monday to Thursday at 8.20 in the morning. This type of broadcast spread over four days of the week causes the sagas to be cut so as to create four episodes, ending each adventure on Thursday of each week. The dubbing was entrusted to Debeb Film, under the direction of Paolo Torrisi. As for the theme song, created in the 80s (and also taken up for this new programming) it could only be sung by Cristina D'Avena.

Ponyland, or as it is translated in the Italian version Ponilandia (also called the Valley of Happiness) is an enchanted land, home to numerous magical creatures, although not all peaceful and loving like ponies. In the villa of paradise the magical ponies live in joy and light-heartedness, spending their days between games and music. To spoil this peace, however, the witches, goblins, trolls or other monsters that unfortunately inhabit the Felcità Valley are always ready. Their intent is to eliminate all ponies, or at least make them their personal slaves. The magical protagonists of this series are not alone in fighting this threat. In fact, next to them is the little girl Megan, the only one who is allowed to enter the fairy world of Ponyland. Very often Megan lets her little brother Danny and her little sister Molly help her, who live on a farm beyond the rainbow. In addition to the three small children, the other protagonists, especially among the ponies, are: Magic Star, Gustavo, Dolcina, Fiocco, Ombretta, Gustavo, Tobia, Pallina, the Batuffoli, Dragoberto, Stella Polare and Schizzo. All together they will find themselves facing fantastic adventures, such as the witches of the Volcano of Melancholy whose plan was to eliminate the Solar Stone. This is vital for ponies and for the entire valley, since all of them draw life from it. To these are added monkeys, sea creatures, Porcellina (a pig whose aim is to transform the whole world into glass), flowers that become monsters, evil dogs, dragons and many others.
My Little Pony movies
In addition to the TV series, a feature film and two medium-length films were also produced. The first was released in theaters the year the series was first broadcast in Italy, the other two were born before the TV series, but aired on Italian TV only at the end of the second season. Since these two medium-length films were set in a time before the animated series, it was decided to show them as a sort of prequel. The difference compared to the version that all the children knew, however, was clear, in fact the various characters showed somewhat different physical characteristics.
The whole "My mini pony" project was born from a market idea: Hasbro had in fact produced these small colored and glittered ponies, aimed at a medium-low audience. In 1981 the marketing was made official, and the sales boom that took place, exceeded all rosy expectations from the manufacturer. For a certain period, in fact, the toys "my mini pony" even managed to exceed the sales numbers of the barbies, a true giant of children's toys in the world. The launch of the line, under the name "My Little Pony" occurred in 1982. A year later the toy line was distributed by the DAG which, together with Hasbro itself, gave the reins in the hands of Co. Mark. P of Sapienza. The new marketing review led to the creation of a new name: "my mini pony".
Turning our gaze to the past, we can well analyze the development of this phenomenon, divided into three generations of ponies. The first generation consisted of 6 ponies. The physical characteristics of these animals had been designed in such a way as to give them an appearance as human as possible. In this way the children (especially girls to tell the truth) would have seen "my mini pony" not only as animals, indeed quite the opposite, they would have approached them almost like superheroes halfway between themselves and a fantastic animal fruit of the imagination. Physically their body was somewhat rounded, with very large eyes, placed on a face which, as mentioned, clearly recalled the human one. However, what attracted the young buyers the most were the bright colors that characterized each pony. Colors that in addition to the body also expanded to tail and mane. Furthermore, each animal was distinguished from the other mainly by a unique symbol placed on the animal. Included in the box of the little pony, Hasbro also offered a comb, so as to always keep the hair of her mini friend in order. Soon, however, also following the television broadcast, it was decided to put other characters from the cartoon on sale. A winning idea given the sales statistics, and so unicorns, seahorses and pegases made their appearance on the shelves of stores all over Italy.
Alongside this line, already enriched by newcomers, the new one of Baby ponies was developed. In practice it was the same ponies already known, only that their size was really small, accompanied by numerous accessories, often sold separately. All ponies were part of this new line, starting from the first comers, the terrestrials, up to those with wings (the pegasi). This parallel production lasted for ten years (from 1982 to 1992), certainly not reaching the levels of the base line, but giving more and more popularity to the series and in any case guaranteeing excellent revenues, facilitated by the sale of further related toys, especially the various environments, such as the stable.
The second series
The second generation of "my mini pony" begins in 1997. In America its name is "Friendship Garden Ponies" while in Europe it is known as "Ponyland". In the United States, the sale is a real flop and has been discontinued since 1999, even if the first generation had reported comforting results. In Europe, by surprise, the second generation outperforms the first in sales and success. The new features of the small ponies are longer and slimmer legs than in the past, moving heads (to give the possibility, even if minimal, of an interaction between child and toy) and above all bright eyes that, together with the bright colors of the bodies of these ponies, attracted the public as if they were made of sugar. As said, the sales figures remained high, even if in the long run they turned out to be slow. A recovery, however, occurred when it was decided to intervene decisively with a series of merchandising that went beyond simple puppets. So we found ourselves invaded by notebooks, perfumes, video games, magazines for teenagers, T-shirts, hats and glasses. A real expanding market.
The third series
The third and final generation starts in 2003, and a small step back in body design seems to have been taken. In fact, it seems that we wanted to recall the slightly more rounded image of the early 80s, while still maintaining the characteristic of glittery and shiny bodies, also adding a small magnet in one of the four pony's hooves. This served to attract the various accessories offered for sale (separately) by Hasbro. However, this addition was soon eliminated from new productions, since there were malfunction problems, caused precisely by magnets, by electronic equipment. An important market strategy was that of the points to be collected inside each box of "my mini pony". In fact, once the necessary points were collected, it was possible to receive exclusive ponies, not present on the market. This tactic allowed the recovery of more than good results also in the United States, where the sale had started simultaneously with Europe. Co. Mark doesn't pay at all. P, always in collaboration with Hasbro, publishes "Collection Pony", a publication also sold in America and Europe, even if the version of the old continent is much modified compared to the original with stars and stripes. Given the great success of this initiative, a monthly magazine entitled "The newspaper of happiness of My Mini Pony" was also given to the press (it had a circulation of more than 100000 copies). To accompany the children at any time of the day, diaries for school could not be missing. So "My Mini Pony's Happiness Diary" was put up for sale.
The animated TV series is very simple in its architecture, in fact, given the short duration of each episode, everything revolves around a powerful enemy that undermines the serenity of this equine Arcadia, and has an obviously happy and happy conclusion for each character, not forgetting to disseminate good advice and the right morals during the adventure. A more than discreet entertainment program for children, but linked to the sale of puppets and gadgets, the success of which often depends on the duration of the series itself.
