Rainbow Muffins by ~VanillaCompact

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 I am planning on a post or two today about Derpy, our “origins” article is now badly out of date with all the recent drama, and we’ll probably do an artwork dump (if I can find happy pictures of her in my favorites), and I’ll be re-writing the DerpyGate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.

    Happy Derpy Day!

    Could be happier though.
    Derpy is a very unfortunate pony, her day was surrounded by drama last year thanks to the 4chan bannings and now her very identity is in peril.
    Hopefully next year we can have a truly happy Derpy day.

      I created Derpy Day as a way of showing love and acceptance after being banned from 4chan. I thought why not take something a bit mean and make something nice out of it?

    There are more things that point in the direction of only thirteen episodes that are more recent, so I wouldn’t get too optimistic.

    Recently, an importan person posted on Twitter that he was done with My Little Pony. I don’t remember name or role, but to a comment it was replied that they had a lot of things prepared, so people should not worry. To me, that sounds like they are not making more.

    And in a very recent interview with Jayson Thiessen, he almost said that he had gotten a new job. He said something in that direction, but after he said it the conversation went elsewhere.

    The only recent thing that may point to more episodes was the letter from Amy Keating Rogers, where it was revealed that they considered forcing Derpy into a new episode to explain things. That may mean they are still writing new episodes. But they could also edit an already finished episode.

      But I believe Ms. Rogers is confirmed to not be working on Season 3. I assume she just meant that when they were still working on season 2.

      Basically, I’m not getting my hopes up. With all the management-level changes that we know have occurred/are occurring, I’m not gonna place any bets that season 3 will have more than 13 episodes. (Or that we’ll even get a season 4)

        Whoops, same Anon here, I misread that part from AKR’s response. I guess it sort of does hint that there still could be more, but I’m still not getting my hopes up.

    “You never know, they might have had only slated 13 episodes of Season 2 last year”

    In March last year we heard that 24 episodes had been ordered for season 2, which led to some concerns that the season would be slightly shorter. It wasn’t until May that Daniel Ingram cleared up the minor confusion by explaining on his Facebook page that two episodes (the two parts of Return of Harmony) had been tacked onto the end of the production cycle for season 1 (which is why those two episodes alone still used the season 1 opening and still had Lauren Faust credited as executive producer, instead of consulting producer as it appears on all subsequent season 2 episodes).

    OH GOD IT’S DERPY DAY AND I FORGOT TO EAT A MUFFIN.

    I’ll eat one first thing in the morning. Promise.

    I don’t know sure giving out muffins to people that might actually know you a little like at your work or aparement might be fun but just going out into the world and giving random people muffins that might or might not have aids or drugs in them like just giving people you see on the street a muffin i don’t know.

    It’s kinda like the whole “Hey kid wan’t some candy? cause i got candy in my van”
