Cotton Candy is the only one of the original six ponies to ever make a TV appearance, featuring briefly in the first ever My Little Pony Special. She was voiced by Laura Dean.

She is also a major character in the UK My Little Pony comics, where her appetite for flowers often leads her into trouble. Whether she is eating her own fancy dress costume, raiding Posey's garden, or nibbling birthday bouquets, Cotton Candy typically has a mouth full of flowers.

Cotton Candy is also the "Ponyland nurse", although "Ponyland herbalist" is probably a clearer description of her job. She learns herb-craft from the Princess of Herbs after a worrying incident in which Applejack bites into a magical apple and runs the risk of sleeping for a hundred years.

Cotton Candy is in the books The Magic Nut Tree, The Trolls and the Castle of Darkness, The Cross Weather Witch, and A Shock at the Show Stable.



Toy Variants

Common Cotton Candy

Cotton Candy is a G1 My Little Pony released in 1983 even though her hoof says 1982. Her body is light pink with pink hair and her eyes are lavender. Her symbol is lots of small white blobs, probably meant to represent an appaloosa pattern. The original idea behind My Little Pony was that the toys would have "real horse" colors and patterns. The fact that the other Collector prototypes have the exact same "blobby flecks" symbol in the first My Little Pony commercial, as well as on the front of the Year 1 backcard, suggests that her symbol is a leftover of this idea.

She was released in Year 1 first as a flat-footed pony, then as a concave-footed pony (still on the Year 1 backcard). Then in Year 2 she was rereleased as a CF pony, along with Blossom. She was also offered several times as a mail order pony, also with concave feet. Her CF version's body color is a bit darker than the FF version, and her eyes are a darker purple.

US Backcard Story, Year One

My Little Pony is a pretty pony with long, shiny hair. She likes you to comb her hair so it stays silky and soft. You can braid her tail and tie it in a ribbon too!

UK Backcard Story

Cotton Candy loves sweet things; sweet nectar from the flowers, sweet honey from the bees, sweet grass from the valley. However, she is also a bit lazy and tries to find her treats a little too close to home. Blossom's flower garden is always a tempting place to grab a snack.

US Backcard Story, Year Two

Cotton Candy galloped out of the stable garden with Blossom hot on her heels. "At least she's stopped eating my beautiful flowers," Blossom whinnied as she stopped chasing her. Cotton Candy slowed to a trot. She was forever getting into mischief, mostly because she tried to find her sweet treats in Blossom's garden. "I'll visit my mountain friends, I think the wild flowers will be out in the valley. Yum!" she said happily, licking her lips.
