And another preview clip just appeared on Yahoo TV. Video after the break.
As Twilight Sparkle and Cadence set out for an adventure in Ponyville, Discord appears … as “Fear and Loathing” scribe Hunter S. Thompson. The kids might not catch the quick reference, but it’s pop culture Easter eggs like this that keep the more mature fandom going.
As mentioned in the Derp Guide, every week the crew over on the Steven Crewniverse Tumblr post random production images, such as background images, a few storyboards, or this week (I have not fully checked it out) the entire storyboard gallery for “Serious Steven”.

409 – “Pinkie Apple Pie”
Written by Natasha Levinger
“Pinkie makes an astonishing discovery that may link the Pie family to the Apple clan, and no one is more excited than Pinkie to hop on the Apple wagon to find the pony who will know for sure.

General reports from the community are indicating that all upload attempts to YouTube are being met with ContentID blocks. I do remember hearing that YouTube planned on rolling out an upgraded Content ID system that was going to be harsher than before, including scans on uploads. I know since Season 4 has started, it seems the uploaders have struggled more and more each week, so its quite possible that YouTube has already begun to roll out the upgrades. Hopefully we can do some research into it, otherwise seek the alternatives. (DS)
