Friendship is Magic: The Ultimate Abridged Series is the title of a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic abridged series, produced by a team of three teenage bronies, under the Youtube Channel name, PonyPokey . The team consists of Bobby (The Grand Editor), Derek (The Man of a Hundred Voices), and Jake (The Producer). This Abridged Series is characterized by its use of 8-bit sound effects, 90's TV and pop culture references, casting of the three bronies' real life friends as voice talent, and use of video game soundtracks as background music. The characters' personalities within The Ultimate Abridged Series remain true to those presented in the actual show, but have added characteristics and are somewhat exaggerated. The characters are also aware of many of the headcannons created by the My Little Pony fandom.

OriginEdit

Screencap of The Ultimate Abridged Series Episode 6 spoofing the song of time from Zelda.

The idea for the series came about in late July 2011, during a small viewing party the three bronies had for a few episodes of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. While they watched, they would point out small eccentricities in the show, and general poke a little fun at the show. This soon evolved into making image macros and screencaps of the show itself, and within a few more viewing parties, they got the idea to start a My Little Pony based blog on Tumblr, and soon became a reality. On August 2nd, the blog Do The Pony Pokey was created as an outlet for the original content for My Little Pony made by the three bronies. After a couple of weeks of work on the blog, the idea for an abridged series began to make more and more sense to them, and quickly became a reality.

ProductionEdit

The series is produced by using a combination of Sony Vegas for video editing, a Samson C01U Studio Condensor Microphone , Audacity for audio editing, and utilizes the Dropbox Service to share the production files between the three bronies easily.
