The last regular cartoon series based on the toy (there was the odd video adventure in between), "My Little Pony Tales" in 1992, was essentially a tween sitcom in which the ponies went to school, hung out in a soda shop, roller-skated, wore leg warmers, crushed on pony boys and more or less behaved like human girls of that day and age.
