Announced at the upfront today was a new Nicktoon called Pony. It centers on a 9 year old girl named Annie, her family, and what happens when a talking pony comes to live with them. It’s been picked up for 20 episodes. It’s the first animated comedy series to be greenlit for the U.S. from Nickelodeon International. It’s created by Ant Blades and is based on a short of the same name from Nick’s 2015 International Animated Shorts Program.

I wonder if the entire voice cast will be British, since the show is from the UK.

This sounds like a Random Cartoon short about a girl and her talking doll. I wonder if that just a coincidence.

It sounds like Nick is taking a page from The Amazing World of Gumball's book, acquiring an original series from the UK and all. Hey, it's worked well for Cartoon Network, so why not?

Looks like 2019 (or possibly the next two years) will be the year of cartoons with female leads.

Title is way too simple even for a Google search. It may be a working title as of right now.

I'm skeptical about this knowing Nickelodeon's track record of producing and or acquiring shows with a Female protagonist.

Looks like we will have another pony cartoon to take My Little Pony's place when it wraps.
(sigh) Okay, "unpopular opinion" coming up...

Hopefully, it won't be anything like Friendship is Magic, which, to make a long story short, was essentially trying to be two different shows at once, which, where the 36 (technically 37) year old My Little Pony franchise created by Bonnie Zacherle is concerned, is dodging the issue.

In any case, I suspect that this show, "Pony" takes place in our world (i.e., the human world), and the pony of this show is the only talking pony here (unless of course, the show, or just later episodes show other talking ponies). It will probably even be more a a "girl and her pony" story. So I'll definitely check the show out.

Don't feel bad - I'm personally not going anywhere near this if it's anything like MLP:FiM; too bad nothing about this show stands out to me just yet, so I'm just going to wait to get more material to make a proper judgment. Either way, I'd like a show that's its own thing, not something trying to one-up something else (that I otherwise personally find overrated, which is worse.), honestly.

Don’t know if plans have changed since this was from an upfront presentation earlier this year (though the 2018 dates stuck), but this video at the 1:32 mark has it premiering during the fourth quarter of 2019.

A couple brief first looks at the show (which is now called It’s Pony) can be seen at 1:13 and 1:29.

EDIT: The video was taken down.

Not much, but it’s nice to see Nick hasn’t forgotten about it.

I decided to cancel my Boomerang subscription. The App didn't have a feature to save shows to watch later, it felt bare bones, and not really worth the price. I just hope more of the content would move over to HBO Max.
Happy anniversary to Rugrats, Doug and The Ren & Stimpy Show, which premiered on Nickelodeon 29 years ago today!
Look guys! Another reboot:

...and it is going to be a drama?



Just like with San Diego Comic Con a few weeks ago, New York Comic Con will be virtual this year. It's from October 8-11.
