Cindy Morrow is another one of Faust’s acquaintances from her Cartoon Network days. Besides The Powerpuff Girls, Morrow has lent her talents to Dexter’s Laboratory, The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, My Life as a Teenage Robot, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, Chowder and Spongebob Squarepants.
Faust had called her directly when putting her staff together for the show. As a result, Morrow has contributed at least eleven episodes for the series besides contributing to the early Equestria Girls shorts. Her episodes tended to have her protagonists battle a personal fear that drives them to do crazy things. Such episodes with this trend include Winter Wrap Up, Owl's Well That Ends Well, Read It and Weep, Hurricane Fluttershy, and Tanks for the…

Here is an example of a one hit wonder mixed with new MLP talent with history prior to her arrival.
Not much is known about Teddy Antonio except that his only other writing credit is an episode of Dora and Friends: Into the City back in 2014 and this comment made by Antonio I found on the internet.
“I live in LA submitted promises to Hasbro in 2011 Meghan got ahold of them and I got a spot in Season 3. During a conference call. Meghan told me the idea. “Fluttershy and Discord are roommates.” And the whole thing evolved into the episode it is now. I didn’t get to follow Meghan’s progress on the script, so I don’t know what the final version will be like…but I can guarantee you all that it will be awesome.
Oh, and I was a 15-year-old Brony...kind…

Michael Vogel you might say switched from a top-level position to be more creative within the staff. Prior to working for Hasbro in 2009, Vogel worked on shows like Jackie Chan Adventures, The Spectacular Spider-Man, and The Boondocks. When Hasbro when under restructuring, he was promoted to vice president of development.
He stepped down in 2014 to lend a hand with the 2017 movie as co-executive producer and a co-writer. During this time, he began to contribute to the Rainbow Rocks Encore Shorts, write episodes for Season 6, and Season 8. He even wrote officially-licensed books such as Good Night, Baby Flurry Heart, the activity book Pinkie Pie's Perfect Surprise, the Ponyville Mysteries chapter books that were co-written by fellow writer Nicole Du…Read more >
This Emmy nominated writer is just as legendary in the fandom just as Faust herself in this show. Amy Keating Rogers wrote most of the memorable episodes related to Rainbow Dash, Rarity and Applejack.
She was among the first people Lauren Faust thought of to help her make MLP: FIM what is. Rogers worked with her on The Powerpuff Girls and Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends. Her other Cartoon Network contributions include Dexter’s Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, Grim & Evil, and Samurai Jack.
Despite not writing for Season 3, she still kept herself busy with the Rainbow Rocks shorts that were released as promotion for the sequel to Equestria Girls. Her memorable episodes include Pinkie Pride, Hearts and Hooves Day, The Best Night Ever, Fall Weather Friends, …Read more >
Welcome to the first post of the Writer's Poll where we will have a look at the woman who made all of this possible.
Before working with the ponies, Faust had done work for Cartoon Network with shows like The Powerpuff Girls and helping her husband, Craig McCracken, develop Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends and eventually Wonder over Yonder.
Without this woman at the helm, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic might never have gotten the recognition it has received. Faust developed the show with a strong focus on character development and giving them distinct personalities. This, combined with strong storytelling, intrigued older viewers who took the show to heart and began expressing their appreciation through fanfiction, art, music, and more.
