Marx Brothers Ponies - PNG by Larsurus Marx Brothers Ponies - PNG by Larsurus
So anyways... here are the Marx Brothers of Equestria as I would picture them. Ponies don't have many facial features so it was a bit tricky making this, but I hope you recognize them. I left out Marx brother #4 because he's too plain in my opinion.

Not much action in this pic, I know.
I might put these guys in a "real" artwork in the future.

Feel free to comment if you think I can improve on something in these characters!

I was hoping to find these here since I've been watching my Marx Bros. collection almost nightly.  Would watch one movie a night.  About to put on Duck Soup, which is my favorite movie of all.  Animal Crackers is another favorite of mine.

Friends, I'm going to tell you of the great mysterious wonderful land known as Equestria.  Equestria is the Princess' Country, and they can have it! 

We left New York drunk and early on the morning of February 2nd.  After 15 days on the water and 6 on the boat, we finally arrived on the shores of Equestria.  We at once proceeded 300 miles into the Everfree Forest, where I shot a timber wolf.  Many of you don't know what a timber wolf is.  A timber wolf is the Canadian cousin of the Hollywood Wolf. 

From the day of our arrival, we led an active life.  The first morning saw us up at 6, breakfasted, then back in bed by 7.  This was our routine for the first three months.  We finally got so we were back in bed by 6:30. 

One morning I was sitting in front of the cabin smoking some apples.  There wasn't a cigar store in the neighborhood.  As I say, I was sitting in front of the cabin when I bagged six griffons.  I bagged them, I bagged them to go away but they hung around all afternoon.  They were the most persistent griffons I'd ever met.  They were griffon me a lot of grief.  They also tried griffon me out of my money, but I was too smart for 'em.

The principal animals inhabiting Equestria are ponies, donkeys, and Knights of Pythias.

Of course you all know what a pony is, it helps you win big money.  The first day I bet two bucks on one pony and that was the most money we had.  As I say you all know what a donkey is?  That's what helps you get into your house, the donkey.  The dragons, on the other hand, live up in the mountains, and every Spring come down for their conventions.  It's very interesting when they start wearing wigs and dresses.  Then they really get their dragon.  After it's over they take their dragoff.

I approached one of the ponies and though it could speak English, I could barely hear it.  It was a little hoarse.

One morning I met a sea serpent in my pajamas.  How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know.  But I sea the serpents are ready to serp dinner now, so let's eat!

Harpo doesn't have a harp or horn, and wish all the Marx brothers were there. Other than that you've definitely caught them.

That's awesome. Great attention to detail; Chico's cutie mark fits him perfectly. (That's one sentence I never expected to one day type.) Can't blame you for leaving out Zeppo; I wonder why he never developed his own character, since by all accounts he was hilarious when he subbed for Groucho on vaudeville.

Real cute, I like that you kept it black and white.

That's okay. Nobody ever remembers what Zeppo looks like in real life anyway!

YES!!! thank you!!
Snailusio Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012
Well, so if something exists, there has to be a pony version of it?

DAFORCEFilms Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012
If most ponies get their cutie marks at a very young age, what did Groucho do to earn his?
Larsurus Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2012
Smoke a cigar I guess :)

Zeppo plain?! He's the the audience's window to his fellow brother wild humor. Plus the Paramount Era (1929-1933) was their funniest. The first two MGM ones post Zeppo are severely overrated.

Ughh... I love the Marx brothers but not MLP.

Marx Brothers are great :) You can't make humour like that anymore.

I just love this! They look good as ponies! Groucho and Chico look good; and I love how you made Harpo look!

That is amazing! I wish they make a famous mirror scene from "duck soup" on the show.

OMG THIS IS AWESOME! And I totally recognized them without reading the title! I love Groucho the most, though, he's my favorite of the brothers, so I was already biased, lol.

This is seriously awesome though!

Interesting: The Marx brothers IRL were pretty similar.

Groucho: Was quite grouchy (said his daughter), married a... Dancer, I think? His daughter used to go to Harpo's a lot for more peace.
Harpo: Loving family, used to pick up all the local strays, and could usually help people who'd lost pets. :)
Chico: Major gambling issues. Got very ill later in life.
Zeppo: Got in trouble with organised crime, moved to behind scenes helping to avoid attention. :p

Not similar in looks though. Once they got off a train to their fans and no one recognised them! They went back round, put on their costumes, and came out to cheers. :D

Hehe, thanks for the info :)
