Apples Don't Grow on Trees by SubjectNumber2394 Apples Don't Grow on Trees by SubjectNumber2394
This one is a loose Malcolm in the Middle reference, but you don't need to have seen it to get the comic. I'll try and avoid using too many references in future but this worked too well to pass up.

Scene being referenced:
Hal: "Dewey, go easy on the orange juice. That stuff doesn't grow on trees - wait, it does. So why is it so damn expensive?"

I'm hoping to keep up a weekly comic thing because comics are great drawing practise. Especially when it comes to expressions as the characters face usually needs to change in almost every frame.


MLP:FIM is owned by Hasbro.

It's a play on the phrase "Money doesn't grow on trees" meaning money is not easy to get and needs hard work to achieve. Applejack puts a lot of hard work into her apples (her source of income), which does grow on trees. So she's asking why it's so hard to grow apples.
