About

Seaponies are a race of aquatic ponies originating from G1 of My Little Pony, which also gained a huge following in My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fandom. While mostly referring to the show characters, especially Lyra Heartstrings, re-imagined as a seahorses the term is also used for other types of water-dwelling ponies, such as octopus ponies (mostly Octavia) and various fish.

Origin

They were first seen in the "My Little Pony Special" movie[1], aired in 1984, where they appeared briefly to help the protagonists, performing a musical number. The song's catchiness and phrases "Shoo-be-doo" and "Call upon the sea ponies" became associated with the species. Video containing the song (shown below) was uploaded to Youtube on October 10th, 2006 and gained over 550 000 views since then.

Despite being fondly remembered by fans, they didn't gain any significant internet following until August 22nd, 2011, when DeviantArt user johnjoseco[2] uploaded an image featuring Lyra as a seapony (seen below, left).

The My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic comics include Seaponies and Mermares as part of their canon, with Princess Celestia mentioning them and having an appearance in Issue #14[3] (below, right).
