Anyone else noticed that Twilight Sparkles mom, looks pretty much like Twilight in the G1 series? Twilight Sparkle was actually based on Twilight G1, but they weren't allowed to use her, because of copyright issues.
Because it didn't allow Lauren Faust to bring back the old ponies in the same style. So she had to draw them like we have them now! That means that if it weren't for copyright, we would be having G1 Ponies all over again, and that means no bronies!
