  • Equestria Inquirer #38


    Time for the next issue of the equestria Inquirer! Check out the embed after the break, and the PDF Version here!
    There’s something different about this week’s episode of the Equestria Inquirer. Sure, all of the usual stuff is in there: Joe gives an update on the Chinese/Equestrian peace talks, and TechRat discusses two ways in which Ponyville faces certain destruction, but something is not right. What could it be? Could it be the new segment from LttMoose? Could it be the surprise guest appearance by DustyKatt? No, there’s something else. Something odd. Something unnatural. Something..... backwards. We’re not going to tell you what it is. See if you can spot it for yourself. It’s subtle....very subtle. Good luck finding it! - TechRat

  • John de Lancie Brony Documentary Reaches Goal!


    Well, that didn't take long. We posted about the new Kickstarter page for a Brony documentary being led by John de Lancie just a couple days ago and apparently it has already reached its goal! You guys truly are powerhouses when it comes to funding these projects, eh?

    Still, even though the project is funded, they have made an update you can read here that states what extra money above the goal of the project could mean for the documentary. Check it out it's worth a read!

  • Poll Results: What Location Do You Want to See In Season 3?


    I'll be honest guys, I was pullin for Tartarus.  A ponified Vegas sounds pretty awesome though! Who knows what we will see in season 3?

    Feel free to toss your 2cents down below the break, or hit up any we missed.  This poll was for locations that have been mentioned, but never visited, in the show.  We might toss a "places/settings you want to see" out eventually, but I would have to gather some ideas on that one!
  • Random Merch: Activity Books, Birthday Cards Belts and More.

  • Bronyville Episode 54


    The 54th installment Bronyville has been released! Find it below!

    And for everyone else, Discuss Trixie learning magic.
    Dear Princess Celestia,
    Hey you, me again. I’m mailing along our latest episode to you. Sandyface wasn’t able to make the show but Cereal Velocity from Equestria Daily filled his spot. Our Guest was Amanda, a web researcher at KnowYourMeme.com and we have a roundtable about the fandoms perceptions, various memes, and eventually fully convert her to the herd! She was willing too! Anyway, give it a listen as it’s a fun one!

    Sincerely,
    Apple Cider

  • Tara Strong Announces First Winner of the Kiki's Treatment Fund


    As many of you have already picked up from our recent post on the subject, Tara Strong is currently holding a charity raffle for a girl named Kiki, who is currently suffering from a brain tumor and in need of assistance.

    The first winner of the raffle has been announced.  Some lucky brony named Haymaker gets his very own signed Twilightlicious shirt!  She is currently looking for the person, so tweet her if you are the one that used that name for the charity. 

    The raffles are still continuing on.  If you would like to join, hit up the donation page!

  • Belly Bro's and Care Dudes Axed


    Some of you may have run into a certain Carebear article on Cartoon Brew the other day.  An over excited Hub PR rep wanted to make it the next brony phenomenon, and the guys in comments didn't seem to agree with that one! This was the press release for it:
    Hey Amid-
    What’s the Care Bears equivalent of a Brony? Belly-Bros? Care-Dudes? “Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot” premieres this June on The Hub TV Network and features the same re-imagined CG animation and spirit of friendship and caring that made shows like “My Little Pony Friendship is Magic” a cult hit.
    “Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot” is a modernized, CGI-animated version of the classic animated cartoon, which hits its 30th anniversary this year! Re-imagined in the same vein as the Hub’s other hit television shows, everyone’s favorite bears and their iconic Belly Badges have been transformed with today’s technology into a series that kids and families can enjoy together. I’d love to see if you’d be interested in featuring the bears for the series launch this June.
    I have art and clips available and can also do email interviews with Executive Producer Sarah Finn, our director and voice talent. Let me know if this interests you and I can send over some more details!
    Thanks!
    [PR flack]
    I'm going to give the show a shot, but I don't know if I'd ever want to be called a Belly Bro.  After the  fallout in comments, it looks like someone else from The Hub came in to clean up the mess:
    Hi Amid,
    Last night I came across your story on Cartoon Brew titled “The Hub Hopes Men Will Start Calling Themselves “Belly Bros” and “Care Dudes.” In response, I wanted to let you know that this was an unapproved and unsanctioned pitch by our PR agency that we are completely taken aback by. Both The Hub TV Network nor American Greetings Properties had any knowledge of the pitch angle. It is not our intention to compare Care Bears to My Little Pony and/or the Brony community.
    All the best,
    Crystal Williams
    Manager, Communications & Publicity
    The Hub
    But hey! Who knows? Maybe it will blow us all out of the water like Friendship is Magic did?  I know my initial reaction to pony was completely negative, but here I am spending ALL HOURS on it.  I'm pretty open minded these days. 

    During the Royal Wedding event, I did talk to someone about this show.  He mentioned that Care Bears was a bit younger on the humor, and urged me to check out Littlest Pet Shop instead when that arrived.  Apparently it will be rolling with some sit-com style humor that they are all really excited to share with us. It's going to be hard to beat the success of FiM, hell I don't think any network will be able to clobber that one yet, but after this fandom, I'm willing to give anything a chance.
