G2 Clever Clover G4 style by hammyhammy22 G2 Clever Clover G4 style by hammyhammy22
EDIT: I recently discovered Clover here had been mentioned in MLP FiM in the episode Hearth's Warming Eve (I assume he'd be depicted like his original toy form yet as a unicorn, since Twilight saprkle was portraying him I assume he's a unicorn)

I dug out one of my two remianing old My Little Ponies today and decided after seeing ~kaoshoneybun had re-created most of the old MLP characters from the old TV series into the new G4 style in ~generalzoi's pony creator I'd make one.

I picked Clever Clover my personal fave pony figure ^^, he's 14 years old my dad bought me him when he first came out back in 1997, and his cutie mark was a pain in the arse to draw on. Although his mane looks dark blue on my photo there it's actually a rich purple with blue streaks.

The other Pony I have left is Sunny daze, all of my other G3 ponies were stolen years ago, and I think I chucked all my G2 ones (although I wish I'd kept one G2 Lightheart she was another fave).

anyways enough remenising..

It was odd that his name was Clever Clover yet he was associated with sport, when his whole being was associated with Luck.
However as for the style obviously he's not going to look the same as his G2 self, he's in G4 style ^^ and this is how I imagine "Clover the Clever" would look except bearing a horn (I like to assume it's subtle nod the G2 toys).

(I'm sorry I'm not quite sure what you mean with your comment, my response is my interpretation if it is wrong I apologise)

I think you might be mistaken, Clever Clover was exclusively from the 1997-2003 toyline, the G2 ponies never had a TV show or film.

Unless you're talking about the "Clover the Clever" from Hearth's warming eve however there is no mention of gender of this character apart from the fact Twilight plays him (so it's up to fan interpretation of his gender). Or you're talking about Cover from the G1.5 TV series MLP:Tales who was Female.

Oh, now I see. I checked wikipedia for the back of the package he was in. And it says he's a boy. That is so hilarious. Because I always played with my little ponies, but I was a real tomboy. The pony thing was the only girly thing about me. And to think that I, as a 4 year old girl, picked one of the only boy ponies out of the store without knowing XD.

He was mine too ^^ I lost his hat TT_TT (it's a common misconception about Clover's gender since all the ponies looked the same male and female in g2 but Clover's actually boy)

I personally plan to draw some human and (if I get any better) even some pony versions of him. So I was just really excited to see someone else on board lol.

I drew him and Light heart in G4 style a bit ago considering I couldn't create her mane in the Pony Creator.

He has become canon in that when the mane 6 did the play about the founding of Equestria (Hearth's Warming Eve) Twilight played "Clover the Clever" adviser to Princess Platinum of the Unicorns. So we don't actually see him, but he exists. :)

I'm not sure . . . couldn't find a mention of Princess Platinum. But I do know they made a G4 toy of Cupcake, although I haven't seen her in the show yet.

I'll probably get sick of saying this soon so forgive me if I sound snappish ^^; Clever Clover was a boy pony not a girl much to popular dismay.

Really? I kept all the boxes, and from what I remember it definitely said 'she' on the packaging description...or maybe my 8-year-old memory is warping me.

If that's not the case, my apologies for making a mistake, and my childhood has just been turned on its head.

Nope clover was only addressed as "She" in Canada everywhere else it was He. He was the first male pony made in G2 the second one was Prince firefly/adventure. His packaging said "Clever Clover is the athlete. He likes to play all kinds of sports. When he wears his lucky baseball cap, his team always wins the game!" although they got his image wrong [link]

No no It's ok. Again I apologise if sounded sharp towards you.

In that case, I apparently got hold of a Canadian one o.O

That's okay, not at all. It was my mistake, thanks for pointing it out.

I use to have her! the same one! I remember the 1997 and 1998 ponies were so much more beautiful than the ones now. Now they're fat legs and short and big heads are so ugly. Why can't they bring back these gorgeous ones!!?

I played with Clover too much and she got all yucky haha, i think i still have her hat somewhere.

I hate to correct you but Clover was the first Male pony released in G2 he wasn't a girl ^^;

I actually think the new ponies are quite cute they'll never be as good as ole' Clover here but they are cute I'd love a G4 model of Clover and Lightheart.

Yup I'm serious he was the first male pony they made for G2 they made another male one his name was Prince Dragonfly/Adventure. All of their models looked the same which is why they all had the same femmine appearance which is a shame they had no differation.

Just thought you should know, Clover's made it up to one of my main-ish (not as main as the three protagonists but the fourth main young character) in my G2 universe.

Got himself siblings and parents too X3

Wouldn't have happened if I hadn't stumbled upon this so thank you for posting this :D

Clover here is actually a boy he was the first G2 male pony to be produced.

I actually think he was the only boy they made for G2 I'm not too sure though ^^;
Out of G2 I had lightheart (three times if you count the macdonalds one), the orange one with the yellow mane (she had a basket with grapes in it), one with a magnet in it's nose (that some flowers would stick to), Ivy (came with a playset, had an extra long mane, a purple magician one, morning glory (with a little backpack), sundance (aonther playset pony) and this gold princess unicorn with clip on wings.

I can still remember that old pc game where you could make a pony and make it jump hurdles.

Really? I must researh this! XD;; all this G2 talk REALLY makes me want to start collecting them again <3

I had....(if I havent already told you): Thre three McDonald's one (one Ivy, one sundance and one light heart) then I had the same Ivy you did, as well as a Light Heart with movable legs (and pink-colored toes). Also had a Sun Dance, Sweet Berry, Another Ivy (and I think another light heart) and SkySkimmer. She was my favorite. Such a pretty pony.

I would would love to get at least lightheart back :( she was always my tomboy pony when ever I played stories with them (who for some reason had a child, the macdonalds lightheart)

I remember the moveable lightheart she came with that bed didn't she and if you pushed her head down and knocked her tail her head would pop back up ^^. I don't think I ever had a pony of sweet berry (she was pink with a red mane wasn't she?) unless she was one who came with a cake with a magnetic nose.
