It looks like Doctor Who has invaded Pony-Land, with the My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Dr. Whooves Vinyl Figure offering what could be a look at the popular Time Lord in a four-legged form.
While Dr. Whooves isn’t officially connected to the BBC or Doctor Who, fans of the hourglass-sporting horse have taken it upon themselves to merge the two characters, with plenty of memes floating around that feature the pony with a TARDIS and sonic screwdriver. Unfortunately, possible legal ramifications with the BBC kept Hasbro from officially naming the pony Dr. Whooves, settling for Dr. Hooves instead.
Still, the connection remains, with fans even saying the Dr. resembles the tenth incarnation of Doctor Who, played by David Tennant, because of the spiky hair and tie.
Even though there’s no official connection, the timey-wimey pony has earned a place alongside other Doctor Who collectibles because the millions of My Little Pony fans can’t be wrong. If they say this is a pony version of David Tennant, I’m not going to be the one to say they’re not right.
If you want to add an equestrian twist to your Doctor Who collection, you can pre-order the My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Dr. Whooves Vinyl Figure for $13.99 at Entertainment Earth. It will be available August 2013.
