Everybody loves teddy bears (Animation) by Etherium-Apex Everybody loves teddy bears (Animation) by Etherium-Apex
I decided to try my hand at animating with Adobe After Effects, using screenshots from the show as line references. This may be updated in the future to add improvements.

Thank you JustTheBast for this higher quality gif!

That's so adorable!

However, the GIF conversion appears to dither every single colour to some fixed colour palette, instead of using a custom palette made from colours that are actually in the image.  I did a new conversion from your MP4 source to a GIF with a hand-picked colour selection for comparison, and uploaded it to derpibooru.

That looks much better! I don't know squat about creating high quality GIFs, so thank you for doing that. I'll likely replace the one in this deviation with yours.

Glad to be of service! ^_^

I'm not 100% satisfied with my work — I did miss the decoration on the upper drawer of the vanity in the background, and the lighter colours of Celestia's hair that appear at the left edge towards the end of the animation — but I felt it was a good enough demonstration.  I did it in Photoshop, first using the "Indexed Color" mode on selected frames of the animation to create a custom table of mostly hand-picked colours, and then I used that colour table to convert the entire MP4 animation to a GIF.  It can be a little labour-intensive, especially for animations with gradients or semi-transparent objects — or both, as in this case. :)

There has to be an easier way. I made a new animation, and having to create my own color table is making me want to shoot myself.
