The origin of Big Macintosh’s “Eeyup”?

My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Big Macintosh

Here’s a short video written by and starring Peter New, voice actor for Big Macintosh. Peter plays the bartender who says “Yep” at 1 minute and 8 seconds.

Peter shared this video to his facebook page, though even he seems to be only jokingly suggesting that this is where the “Eeyup” really came from. Is this a trademark line of Peter’s? A hidden reference? A line in the script that Peter followed with little significance? Will we ever really know the answer to these burning questions?

    I always thought it was from Ezekiel Foster in the musical White Christmas. I actually ended up playing that character in a school production, and burst out laughing when I saw my first line. He’s basically Big Mac extrapolated (or, I suppose, the other way around). I milked that similarity for all it was worth. XD
