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:
- Amazing Technicolor Population: Being a show about ponies, this was a given.
- Bat out of Hell: Battiwigs.
- Big Bad: Wranglum, the Wizard of the Dark Mirror, who tries to steal all the magic from the kingdom.
- Cool Board: Will is quite the daredevil with his skateboard.
- Cute Witch: Lynn, the Witchy Filly. Being a Witchy Filly in-universe, her cape is the source of all her magical powers.
- 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.
- Mirror Monster: Wranglum.
- Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Not only does this show have the usual Alicorns, Unicorns, Pegasai, and standard Earth Ponies in terms of Filly species, but there are Fairy ponies, Elf ponies, Witch Ponies, and many more.
- Non Sequitur Thud:Battiwigs: Can I ride the carousel, mommy?
- Our Elves Are Better: Bella is referred to in-universe as an Elf Filly, and she has Pointy Ears to match.
- Our Fairies Are Different: Very much different. Will in-universe is a Fairy Filly, which also explains his wings.
- Pegasus: Will. Though his wings aren't exactly typical for what you'd expect on a Pegasus. Then again, Will isn't your typical pegasus.
- Pointy Ears: Being an Elf, Bella has them.
- Shout-Out: Right off the bat, and because of the similarities between them, Filly Funtasia is already drawing a few allusions to the other show about ponies.
- One of the main Filly Characters, Will, has a distinctly black color, strange-looking green wings, and his race in universe is Fairy Filly. Very reminiscent of the Changelings in Friendship Is Magic.
- One of the Fillies looks like Fluttershy.
- There's a Filly character named Twilight, and another Filly character named Sparkle. If that wasn't enough, Twilight has wings and Sparkle is a unicorn.
- Unicorn: Rose, Who is the mane character of the show.
- Winged Unicorn: Zack.
- Wizarding School: The setting of the show.
- X Meets Y: One might think of it as My Little Pony meets Harry Potter.
