    John is famously known to My Little Pony fans as the voice of Discord, the Spirit of Chaos, and has become a fan favorite since Discord’s debut in the Season 2 premiere “The Return of Harmony.”  His next appearance as Discord will be later this month in the episode “Dungeons and Discords.”  That episode features another Ponyville Ciderfest Guest of Honor with Peter New as Big Mac. John is also one of the Executive Producers behind the 2012 documentary “Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony.”  The documentary explored the adult fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
