Now, they're making the jump into a full-fledged animated series!

Interview: Them’s Fightin’ Herds’ Lauren Faust and the Mane6 Team on Their Fighting Game

Not all disagreements can end with a friendly brohoof.

"I try to stay away from projects that treat kids as if they are too dumb to understand even slightly complex concepts, and I stay away from projects that put too much of an importance on the characters behaving in the way parents WANT children to behave rather than how actual young human beings behave ... So I guess that treating children like they are intelligent not only attracts them, but attracts older kids and adults as well."

Behold: Lauren Faust’s Childhood My Little Pony Collection

Our Adorable Past

It's one thing when an adult faces the fact that it's time to put those childhood toys in indefinite storage. It's quite another when the adult crafted an immensely popular television reboot of those toys. Lauren Faust, creator of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, tweeted her preparation of the toys for storage, including pictures of the classic MLP characters who inspired the modern ones. Previously in My Little Pony

OMG: Super Best Friends Forever Exclusive Merchandise At SDCC This Year

Yes. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. Yes.

If you love the Lauren Faust created DC Nation short, Super Best Friends Forever, you're in luck. Although we won't be seeing any more animated shorts (at least anytime soon), DC has made the wise decision to create a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive statue set. USA Today has the rest of the DC con exclusives but we have tunnel vision right now. Take our money. Take it now. The three together will run $49.95 and of course, you'll have to physically be at SDCC or know someone going to get one. Or risk scary Ebay prices after the fact.

New Powerpuff Girls Special Coming To Cartoon Network Plus A DC Nation Shake-Up

And Fansplosions Abound

Cartoon Network is busy presenting their upcoming roster of shows for advertisers and we've seen some interesting developments. For one, there's an all-new Powerpuff Girls special making its way to the network but Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Green Lantern: The Animated Series, and Young Justice are notably absent. Could this mean what we think it means? It sure can considering two new DC shows are premiering soon.

Listen To Star Trek’s Q Sing The History Of My Little Pony, As A My Little Pony

Today in Awesome

We've seen John de Lancie do a lot of ridiculous things thanks to his time as Q on Star Trek: The Next Generation but this...this is something to behold. "Let's Go and Meet the Bronies" was written by Lauren Faust, Amy Keating Rogers, and Zachary Lobertini and is part of a larger My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic documentary about the fandom. De Lancie voices Discord on the animated series and star Tara Strong adds her vocal stylings to the mix near the end. My life is better for watching this.

Super Best Friends Forever Will Not Continue With the Next Season of DC Nation

Great Hera!

Lauren Faust tweeted this picture last night along with the text "Been missing these ladies lately..." This prompted our fellow ladies in comics blogger Sue from DC Women Kicking Ass to press for more information, and Faust, the showrunner behind My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and The Super Best Friends Forever shorts for the DC Nation hour on Cartoon Network, confirmed the sad news that when DC Nation finally returns from an unexpected hiatus in January, we won't be seeing any more of the SBFF's brand of equal opportunity crime fighting any time soon.

Monday Cute: The Only Way to Stop a Battle Between Supergirl and Superman Is a Super Mom

Great Hera!

Okay, so I might have given away the ending gag in the title, but the best gag in the short also features someone's end, and I haven't given it away yet, so you should probably just watch the short before I loose my composure. (via Cute Overload.) Previously in Super Best Friends Forever

Doctor Whooves: The Doctor Who/My Little Pony Cross-Over

And Fansplosions Abound

We've seen Lauren Faust's My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic mashed-up with a few of our fandoms previously. For instance, Scott Pilgrim, The Dark Knight, and Game of Thrones. We've also seen a few fan-made clips of the Doctor from Doctor Who as a pony and the David Tennant look-a-like has even made a few cameo appearances on the actual show (his cutie mark is an hour glass). But now...oh, now we have a whole episode featuring Doctor Whooves and his trusty companion. Hungry for more? Check out these My Little Pony figures done up like the cast of the famous sci-fi show while you're waiting for episode 2 to premiere in a few months. Or, as YouTuber ocarinaplaya suggests, make a usable intro for the Doctor Whooves show (there were some rights issues)!

Another month, another of Lauren Faust's Super Best Friends Forever shorts, this one featuring a lot of gifts for the obsessive Batman fan, most of them in Barbara Gordon's bedroom, which features two pieces of Batman wall art, three villain action figures (one of which is, I believe the Scarecrow in the style of The Batman Adventures) a Bat-mite plush and a Batman-head-shaped head board. And also Commissioner Gordon and Poison Ivy!

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

We knew Lauren Faust, creator of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, would bring us something wonderful when we first heard she was creating an animated short for the DC Nation programming block of Cartoon Network. Especially considering it features Supergirl, Batgirl, and Wonder Girl. Now we have solid proof.

DC Nation’s Baby Superman Will Have You Crying (From Cuteness)

The DC Nation programming block that premiered on Cartoon Network last week entertained fans with not only episodes of Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice, but with two entertaining shorts in differing styles. And while we're particularly antsy waiting for Lauren Faust's Super Best Friends Forever short, this weekend we'll see two others. Warner Bros. has given us a sneak-peak at one of them - Baby Superman. It's particularly cute but I have to say, DC Comics should be looking to these shorts on how to widen their audience. Entertaining stories about your characters without relying on continuity or any specific demographic. You can watch the DC Nation block Saturdays at 10AM ET/PT on Cartoon Network. (via Nerdvana)
