My Little Pony: Flash Animation is Magic
We’ve already written about Dan Vs., the Flash-animated series on The Hub. As it turns out, there’s another Flash-animated series on the network – My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I think I rolled my eyes when I heard about this series the first time, but if you dig a little deeper, you’ll see that the team behind the show is rather impressive. Lauren Faust, who wrote on The Powerpuff Girls and Foster’s Home For Imaginary Friends, developed the series retread, and Jayson Thiessen is the Supervising Director. You may have seen some of Jayson’s work here CHF in the past, and Rob Renzetti (creator of My Life as a Teenage Robot) is the show’s story editor. I also know many CHF readers have worked on the series, and there’s some top-notch Flash animation throughout. Pre-production
is handled out of Los Angeles, and physical animation is produced at Studio B. Here’s a sample:
It’s worth mentioning that this series has fueled a meme, and terms like Bronies, Colts and Derpy Hooves have popped up on 4chan and, yes, PonyChan.
