My Little Pony Tales DVD Set Coming to North America in April

product_images_modal_MLPTales72dpi

My Little Pony Tales is finally coming to DVD in North America. Shout! Factory will release the entire 1992 series of MLP that aired on the Disney Channel in the United States on April 28th at $14.93. It is a two-disc set. A four-disc set of the series was released in Australia in 2005.

Only 26 11-minute episodes were made of the series which features an all-earth pony cast centered around seven friends of presumably pre-teen age (Starlight, Sweetheart, Melody, Bright Eyes, Patch, Clover, and Bon Bon) with three male ponies as secondary characters (Ace, Teddy, and Lancer). However, reruns of this and the original MLP series (minus the Glo-Friends, Potato Head Kids, and Moon Dreamers) continued to run on Disney Channel until 1996.

While merchandise was made for the series, it was never available in the United States. It was only available in Europe and is generally considered the end of the Generation 1 toy line. Merchandise has popped up on occasion on eBay.

Two members of the current My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic series have credits from the Tales series. Cathy Weseluck; the voice of Spike, Mayor Mare, and Coco Pommel; was the show’s singing director. Chiara Zanni, who voices Daring Do, was the voice of Bon Bon on Tales.

“Steven Universe: Attack The Light” Game Release Delayed

Back in October, it was reported that CartoonNetwork and games developer GrumpyFace are going to release a new Steven Universe App game for Andriod and iOS users titled Steven Universe: Attack the Light. Originally expected to become available on Amazon sometime “later this year” the game has pushed it’s release to sometime in 2015 for further development saids Ian Jones-Quartey.

We were hoping to get it out this year but it’s been delayed so we at CN and Grumpyface(the developer) can add more content and balance the gameplay. Things are moving along, though! It’s shaping up to be the fun casual RPG(with a little depth and strategy) that we wanted. Rebecca and I personally created some new art & animation for it- we’re really excited!
