[[{{ScrewedByTheLawyers}} Unfortunately, [=JanAnimations=] has received a cease and desist from Hasbro effectively ending the series]]... in pony form. Both Jan himself and Button's voice actor have expressed interest in retooling future episodes to include original designs so as not to run afoul of any more lawyers. However, negotiations with Hasbro's legal department are ongoing (Jan himself says that the "situation is still evolving"), and many of the works of [=JanAnimations=] have been permitted to be reposted on Youtube, including Don't Mine at Night. Thus, there may yet be some hope for the future of the series.

Well, until Jan finally [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O7gQ9EamVfo provided an update on the situation]], and basically said in no uncertain terms that [[KickTheDog Hasbro was apparently really just screwing around with him in order to try and avoid saying "no" outright in order to avoid fan backlash.]] As far as we know, Jan is basically unable to make fan-works based on Hasbro stuff anymore for the foreseeable future.

Added DiffLines:

* PornStache: Given his mother's reaction to Button trying it on, his father's fake mustache is implied to be this.

* BilingualBackfire: PlayedForLaughs. When Button's mother [[spoiler:confiscates his game set]], he grumbles at her in Humgonian. Turns out she [[spoiler:memorized the ConLang too]].


Added DiffLines:

* {{Fictionary}}: In-universe. The Humgonian language from one of Button's games is so fleshed-out that it even has a phrase for [[spoiler:"You're grounded."]]

* ExecutiveMeddling[=/=]ScrewedByTheLawyers: Jan was slapped with a Cease & Desist order by Hasbro's lawyers, effectively halting the series until further notice.

** Button has a toy statue of Spyro the dragon.
** Button's Toy Train randomly catching on fire is likely a reference to [[TheSimpsons Homer Simpson's cereal going ablaze for no reason.]]
** The video game Button is playing before his mother brings him Pong gets halfway through saying [[KillerInstinct "C-C-COMBO BREAKERRRR"]] before he pauses it. The pause sound effect is also from the ''Super Mario'' series.
** The controller he's using is an NES controller.

Additionally, the [=JanAnimations=] panel at Galacon 2014 [[http://www.equestriadaily.com/2014/08/jan-animations-panel-copyright-claims.html brought several interesting facts to light]]. For one thing, Hasbro was not notified about the C&D (apparently their autonomous lawyer firm shut down Button's Adventures out of hand due to its similarity to the actual show). And for another, though nothing is set in stone, a deal is being worked out between Hasbro and Jan that will "make both us and them happy". This ''could'' mean that Jan might get a limited license to continue the series.

More drastically, Button has actually been ''canonised'' by episode 100 of the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic the show itself]], [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS5E9SliceOfLife 'Slice of Life']], where Button actually appears as a real character and even gets to play a video game! It looks like he's back for real, although the exact nature of his existence is as yet unconfirmed.

[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S2VhC1QF7ww One episode]] has been released so far, with more planned for the future. The pilot also sets up the framework for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ncI5BTIBNM "Don't Mine At Night"]], a parody (of a parody) of Katy Parry's "Last Friday Night", with Button and Sweetie Belle playing ''{{Minecraft}}'' together.
