Animation World Network recently posted this article all about Friendship is Magic, covering everything from the history of the show, to why it is so successful among it's accidental demographic.
This one dug out some really interesting extra information too! There is a whole section about Derpy Hooves (Sounds like Jayson was the culprit here!) and the team's initial reaction to her, as well as how Lauren Faust was hired to work on FiM in the first place.
You can find the article here. It's ditching the nightly roundup, because it's awesome. I'll spam the blog with Trixie for a week if you complain!
