When Lauren Faust was pitching her show to Hasbro around 2008 what was just simply My Little Pony. She made a test pilot for the company itself. Twilight Sparkle was a G1 Twilight, Fluttershy was going to be Posey, Applejack remained, Pinkie Pie was going to be Surprise and Applebloom was originally called Appleseed. The main characters were all going to be in the retro G1 styles but Hasbro lost all the copyright files to this. This pilot cannot be found anywhere, not on YouTube or not on any video sharing site whatsoever.
