Squee! I appreciate the effort all the same. Also, double squee! I find myself not caring so much because it's just so cute!
Is it true that Lauren Faust wanted to do a more story-driven show but was squashed because the higher-ups didn't think it would fly?
I would just like to say that I LOVE what you guys are doing with what's been given to you. The humor, the art, and the writing has all been there so far, and I hope it sticks around. I'm sad that after the success over the last ten years of things like Sailor Moon and Avatar: TLAB that even the suits would begin to understand that kids appreciate shit too, and that the reason things like Toy Story are SO POPULAR is because there are multiple channels of humor and entertainment for ALL ages.
Granted, what you guys are doing here is damn near unprecedented, and we're loving every minute of it. Thanks to you guys, /co/ is love again, and even old jaded /v/ is feeling the magic. Please if you can, pass our respect and support to the entire studio.
tl;dr you guys fucking ROCK.
P.S. is there any chance at all that, if it's popular enough, that the bigwigs will loosen up a bit and allow for things like overarching plots and maybe even a tiny bit more srs bsns like character development and such?
