Wow.. finding out who boarded what on Season one was a lot easier then I thought. Just had to talk to Sibsy!


Alright so here's the list for season 1. I'm not sure how they directorial duties were distributed since Lauren was still in the mix, so here's *just* the board artists. Of note here is that the boarding duties were more split-down-the-middle than in season 2, where the Senior/Junior system took over:

As I've stated before, season 2 was done with 1 lead storyboard artist and 1 junior artist paired together... ALONG WITH a shiny new Storyboard Supervisor, 'Big' Jim Miller! :D The idea behind all of this being to give the episodes more cohesion (I think.. Don't quote me!)

I've heard that in "Dragon Quest" Spike is going to have some conflict with older dragons. Can you please tell me who's going to voice the dragons? Is it Scott McNeil, Steve Blum, Kevin Micheal Richardson, David Kaye, Chris Sabat, Ian James Corlett? Who please tell me who?

Also, is Tirek going to be in the series? If you don't know who he is watch the pilot episode of MLP G1 [link]

Any early world on who worked on "It's About Time"? :)

*hoping it's you because of your previous, fantastic work on crazy Twilight-ness*

I have just made a journal for this. :D

Not me this time. Actually its Sabrina and Nicole for this one. They were supposed to be the ones taking on Lesson Zero originally, but I got swapped in just as production was beginning. What a hell of a time-crunch that was. XD It was also back when we still had a 5-week schedule and I was making a 3 hour commute every day. UGH.

Not to bore you with details. I'm just reflecting upon how much easier things are right now. LoL

^_^ I just saw. That's awesome too! I have a feeling it'll be a great episode.

And aww. But how apt with an episode all about running out of time. I wonder if some of that transferred cathartically into the episode. Loved that episode but I'm really happy to hear things are less stressful :).

Ha ha! Thanks! I love Spike. Kenny and Marshall have one coming up called "Dragon Quest". There is much adorable Spike-ness to be had. :3

Hi, this is a bit of a random question, and I don't know if you know the answer, but it's really important!

The dragon, Garble, who did his voice? It sounded very, very suspiciously like Sam Regal, but I'm not 100% sure and I can't find any voice sources on Wikipedia OR the MLP wiki. Would you or someone else happen to know?

Vincent Tong, the voice of Blueblood and Flash Sentry, voiced Garble...
Kirvee's avatar
Are you certain? Thank you for the answer, though! ^__^
Raveneesimo's avatar
I will have to ask Jayson about that one! I don't have anything to do with casting. XD
Kirvee's avatar
Aah, alright! Well if/when you do find out, please let me know? I'd really appreciate it =).

Thank you!
I do not understand about the baby phoneixes, In the beginning there are 5 baby phoenixes that have the red body and colored feathers whereas peewee, spike's new pet is just plain orange and have tiny orange-like feathers, does it means that the 5 baby phoenixes have already been hatched for a while whereas peewee is a phoenix who is just barely born???
Raveneesimo's avatar
I would guess that they slowly change color over time.. the way black horses are white initially and the color develops over time. IF I HAD TO VENTURE A GUESS!
Well I do hope there will be more future episodes on seeing Peewee with Spike X3!!!

I have a question about Dragon Quest.

Were you inspired from the first MLP cartoon episode "Spike's Search"? They have simular stories.
Raveneesimo's avatar
As I am not a writer, I'm not sure where the inspiration comes from, sorry to say.
