Update: Have surveyed folks on various platforms. Seems to be a lot of mixed feedback thus far. Some like it, some don’t, and some are like okay and whatever. One person said they still think the character redesign looks like MLP. That is hugely important for me to note.

The two shows, MLP and MLH, have quite different target audiences and stories: MLP (the FiM series) is mainly about six ponies and the magic of friendship, is targeted towards kids, and is primarily made to sell the MLP toys. On the other hand, MLH is mainly about the daily lives of Scott and Colin as residents of Albuquerque, is made for an older audience like Family Guy and South Park are, and is not made to primarily sell toys. Despite these distinctions, the character designs do look similar and could potentially get us in legal trouble with Hasbro if we did commercialize MLH right now. This is the primary reason as to why the first episode is available for free.

Based on the mixed feedback, here’s the directions we could go:

  1. We still move forward with doing modifications to the original models to the best of our ability.
  2. We do a complete redesign from scratch.

Thoughts?
