Mr. Waddle is a background Earth pony who appears in several episodes of the show. He is an elderly pony with a light gray coat, a dark gray combed-over mane of several strands of hair, large, thick-rimmed round glasses, varying neckwear, liver spots, and a cutie mark usually of a bubble pipe, sometimes of three pipes, and rarely of an oil derrick. He shares his design with "Pipe Down".


Mr. Waddle was designed by My Little Pony Friendship is Magic character designer Rebecca Dart, who stated in an interview[1] that she designed a bespectacled old male pony, and mentioned on Twitter[2] that the pony in question was designed as "Incidental Senior Pony #3". According to Tabitha St. Germain on Twitter, Mr. Waddle may have been voiced by an animator.
