In retrospect,Faust litteraly casted pearls before swines.Unfortunately,i think she’ll serve as an example in the industry and not in a good way.Because in the end it answered the question "Why bother putting effort into those toys IP ?" pretty well. If it failed,the suits would have come and said "oh it didnt work,you’re fired.Let’s try another approach,how about we send the ponies from our franchise called My Little Pony in a fucking school dimension with off-topic and grotesque looking humans .Fuck you".And when it succeed beyond their expectations like it did,the suit come out and say "That’s good but we need to have our cake and eat it too.So the ponies characters that you crafted and developed for a franchise called My Little Pony are going to a fucking school dimension full of off topic and grotesque looking humans.Lol what do you mean ’i quit ?’ Fuck you"
The only winning move with those IP is not to play if you have talent:Leave it to the yesman,the parvenus and the no-names.Mediocrity is what the mediocre crave anyway.

But in the end…

There’s a temptation to reckon the attempts of artists like Lauren Faust to create entertaining and meaningful shows within the straitjacket of corporate commerce as entirely futile, hopeless. A mug’s game. But then I remember the Grand Galloping Gala in full swing. In time the techno music was blasting and a throng of kids massed together in the center of the dancefloor, dressed in cosplay pony ears and swishing tails and all sorts of homemade cartoon finery, pogoing, and suddenly it became clear that they were all chanting together.

Evan, I said. Are you hearing what they’re chanting. He’s all, What is it? It was this:

“Friendship! Friendship! Friendship!”

Let’s say you run a big public company; your rivals come up with a product you must compete with, you make a business plan and share some of the details about it in a conference call with analysts, and they publish reports anticipating earnings and make recommendations based on those. And then if all your plans succeed, there will be a solid uptick in the share price, thereby fulfilling the fiduciary responsibilities of the corporate management and board of directors. That is Commerce. But if two hundred kids in Anaheim are pogoing in a hotel conference room and shouting “Friendship!” over and over? Nobody at all knew that that was going to happen, or could possibly have anticipated it. That is Art.

Apparently 65 episodes is the minimum for syndication, which allows the show to be aired with greater flexibility.

Fine. Relatively good terms. Knowing what I know now, and having been there during Season Three, I’m pretty sure shit would’ve hit the fan with or without Faust there.

E. She created what was the hottest thing on the internet at the time and figured she could sell that crappy Steven Universe knockoff she wanted to make to another network.

I felt like Season One told a mostly self-contained story, and that it was Season Two that really set up the things that would be important long-term. That said, I don’t really feel like the storyline kicked in until Season Four.

I think S1 is basically more of a prologue to the current storyline that I think offically started in S2 or 3. Like how the Phantom Menace was with the Prequels. Correct me if I am wrong

your question is wrong :/

the reason is he just want more focus on cartoon research innovation for the future,
looks like try make something new design so the old design will abandoned because someone need upgrade to new design,
thats why he leave mlp.
