The team have an old [[http://www.youtube.com/user/SherclopPones Youtube]] channel, though now updates are done [[http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJI4dS-3rg-VrlN8kfSMQnw here]]. Like most [=MLP=] abridged series, ''Friendship Is Witchcraft'' has run into issues with copyright claims from Creator/{{Hasbro}} (the real one), resulting in their videos on Website/YouTube being blocked to U.S. audiences for an indefinite period of time (remind you of [[Creator/LittleKuriboh anyone?]]). An attempt was made to move the series to Vimeo, but those videos ended up being blocked as well (for those wanting to see the series, mirror sites are available). Despite this, the creators insist that the series is not dead. Both creators have launched side projects, available for viewing on their Youtube channel: Jenny's "Kimi Sparkle" series, a parody of WebVideo/MLPAnalysis videos, and Griffin's "Silver Spoon Escapes from Camp Energy", a LetsPlay of {{VideoGame/Limbo}} done as a series of largely improvised stream-of-consciousness ramblings done in character as Silver Spoon. They have also started a multi-part series based on the ''WesternAnimation/EquestriaGirls'' movie, entitled ''Horse Women''.
