Western Animation: Filly Funtasia
Filly Funtasia is an upcoming All-CGI Cartoon show based on Filly, a German line of pony dolls (which has been around since 2006) and produced by the Spanish company BRB Internacional, who also made The World of David the Gnome and Around the World with Willy Fog. It is about a group of royal ponies who attend a magic academy. The show is subject to some controversy due to its similarity to the My Little Pony franchise.A trailer for it can be seen here, another one here, a third one here. The official website is here.Already has its own Equestria Daily style news site here.
This show contains examples of the following tropes:
- Big Bad: Wranglum, the Wizard of the Dark Mirror, who tries to steal all the magic from the kingdom.
- Fawlty Towers Plot/Snowball Lie: As far as can be gathered from the trailer, one episode is about a filly either losing or eating cupcakes that were meant for somebody else and then blaming it on a monster, with hilarious consequences.
- The episode is officially called Liar, Liar, Prance on Fire, and is the first episode. Rose and Bella get the whole school into a frenzy when trying to explain some missing cupcakes.
- Follow the Leader: The show bears more than a passing resemblance to the My Little Pony franchise.note
- Love Potion: Episode 4 The Crush.
- Merchandise-Driven: The show is based on a German line of pony dolls.
- Non Sequitur Thud:Battiwigs: Can I ride the carousel, mommy?
- Wizarding School: The setting of the show.
- X Meets Y: One might think of it as My Little Pony meets Harry Potter.
