First off, Happy Derpy Day.
I see some calling it her birthday, but this is more just a random holiday created by the community, the first of a couple we got going on. It is just to celebrate all the greatness that is Derpy, and eat a muffin. I am planning on a post or two today about Derpy, our “origins” article is now badly out of date with all the recent drama, and we’ll probably do an artwork dump (if I can find happy pictures of her in my favorites), and I’ll be re-writing the DerpyGate article (which is going to be made into a sub-page on the site) so its up to date with the current events.
But in other news, The Hub today posted an official press release on their upcoming programming year. We’ve already been well aware of Season 3, unfortunately the article doesn’t say how many episodes. Last we knew it was slated for 13 episodes, but I suspect it’ll be a full season. The information of the 13 episodes was leaked back in the late fall, and at that point Hasbro was probably just being cautious since Season 2 was fresh out of the box. I’m sure Season 2 has done quite well. You never know, they might have had only slated 13 episodes of Season 2 last year, we didn’t really catch wind about S2 until roughly this time last year.
Along with MLP in renewed shows on the Hub, it includes Pound Puppies, Dan VS., and the two Transformer Shows. New shows (animated that is) is, Care Bears, Welcome to Care-a-lot, Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters, Littlest Pet Shop (heh, really), and Spooksville. It seems they’ve also acquired Sabrina: The Teenage Witch, Mork & Mindy, and The Facts Of Life.
