Bill Neigh is a male Earth pony professor with a gray coat, white mane and tail, and blue eyes. He appears in the episodes The Crystal Empire - Part 1, Trade Ya!, and Spice Up Your Life and in the IDW comics' Micro-Series Issue #7. He is unnamed in the show and other media, being called simply "Professor" in the credits and in Gameloft's mobile game, but he is named in merchandise.

Design and development

Bill Neigh shares his mane style and glasses design with S05E07 Unnamed Earth Stallion #0 and his color scheme with Roger Silvermane. On June 11, 2016, Jim Miller was asked "Was that an Alton Brown-inspired pony? pic.twitter.com/gvyxWLS3i0" and answered "Not specifically."[5] His name is a play on Bill Nye.

Bill Neigh in The Crystal Empire - Part 1.

Bill Neigh first appears during The Failure Song in the season three episode The Crystal Empire - Part 1. He is seen in a Canterlot room that matches the design of the School for Gifted Unicorns room shown in The Cutie Mark Chronicles. He checks Twilight Sparkle's recitation of the square root of 546 being 23.36664289109 and subsequently proclaims "She is correct!" The episode's ending credits mistakenly credit Andrew Francis for the voiced role;[6] Jayson Thiessen and Daniel Ingram have stated that he is voiced by Jayson Thiessen.

Bill Neigh later appears in the season four episode Trade Ya!, managing a stall at the Rainbow Falls Traders Exchange and appearing at several points throughout the episode; in two such shots, he is seen conducting trades with Joe. He makes some background appearances in the season six episode Spice Up Your Life.
