Depiction in the series
Smoky, Softpad, and Smoky Jr. first appear in the season six episode The Saddle Row Review as raccoons occupying the Manehattan building where Rarity plans to open her third boutique, Rarity For You. Rarity initially wants to get rid of the raccoons, and Fluttershy tries to get them to vacate, but they refuse. Later, Fluttershy asks them to work during the boutique's opening night celebration as cocktail waiters. In Every Little Thing She Does, Smoky and Softpad appear among the animals that Starlight Glimmer agreed to help with Fluttershy as part of her friendship lessons.
In season seven, Smoky, Softpad, and Smoky Jr. make various appearances in Fluttershy Leans In, causing chaos around Dr. Fauna's veterinary clinic and destroying the original version of Sweet Feather Sanctuary. They later appear frolicking at the finalized version of the sanctuary.
In season eight, Smoky, Softpad, and Smoky Jr. appear in Fake It 'Til You Make It still residing at Rarity For You. They help Fluttershy run the boutique during the absence of Rarity's hired salesponies, but when Fluttershy adopts a series of personas to deal with the boutique's customers, she derogatorily calls them "rodents", to the surprise of them and the rest of Fluttershy's friends. After Fluttershy drops her character personalities, she apologizes to the raccoons, and they make amends. In Yakity-Sax, Smoky and Smoky Jr. appear sleeping in Fluttershy's animal nursery before Pinkie Pie's terrible yovidaphone playing wakes them up.
In My Little Pony Best Gift Ever, Smoky appears chasing BGE Unnamed Earth Stallion #2 through Ponyville during One More Day. In Teacher of the Month, Smoky appears at a student appreciation party at the School of Friendship.
In She Talks to Angel, Smoky and his family appear at Fluttershy's animal sanctuary throughout the episode, including during the predator/prey support group on the predators' side. In The Big Mac Question, Smoky and his family appear getting tucked in by Fluttershy at her sanctuary before Apple Bloom accidentally wakes them up while looking for Big McIntosh.
In A-Dressing Memories, Smoky and his family are mentioned by Rarity as she tries to cover-up Spike and Starlight's presence at the Carousel Boutique from Twilight after the latter accidentally knocks over Rarity's fabrics. They also appear in a flashback clip of The Saddle Row Review. They get mentioned again by Twilight after Spike closes the picture book on his claw, with the former still believing Rarity's alibi.
