Scootaloo is the Applejack of the CMC

Thing about it. She's orange, boring, and a flat character, and ambiguously might be an orphan. She's Applejack the Next Generation.


  1. Alright, I'm gonna have to be the guy that says that makes no freaking sense.


  2. Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle are both less developed as characters than Apple Bloom, but I think that's a function of screen time more than anything else. I would argue that, unlike Applejack, Scootaloo has at least a couple of obvious potential story arcs ahead of her. It looks likely that we'll get an episode in Season 4 about Scootaloo not being able to fly (an episode I fully expect to be cringe-inducingly bad, given the show's track record on "very special episodes") and I'd like to see something about Scootaloo and Rainbow Dash actually dealing with the day-to-day of a mentoring relationship.
