Thanks to Cody for alerting us, repeatedly even, to the fact that Disney Channel finally decided to reair “The Egg” on its own, meaning that we would get another chance to secure the ending animatics in HD, which had only been recorded in cam rip quality before.
As it turns out, YayPonies already has the new version of the episode available. You can find the animatics alone after the break.
Which classic characters inspired McBrayer’s latest performance—and what’s the secret to his unflagging energy? Find out in our interview below.
After reading and hearing so much about his seminal meeting with Craig McCracken and Lauren Faust in various interviews with Craig, it’s interesting to also read his take on the story. Mostly, however, his enthusiastic personality is something I’d like to nibble on for time to time.
Yeah, the show has this crazy, antic tone—how do you keep your energy up? It seems like it must be exhausting to perform this character.
[laughs] Diet. Mountain. Dew. And that is not a lie. You can ask anybody. I turn into like, a toddler who needs a nap after awhile. Sometimes I’m just like, running in place to be energetic. But for the most part, the way they write it makes it just so fun. They are very careful and considerate, and they’ll save most of my screaming stuff for the end of the [recording] session.
What are you hoping that kids will take away from the show?
Well, for one thing, there is absolutely nothing wrong with being nice. There is nothing uncool about it; there’s nothing wrong with being kind. Not that kids are just being bombarded with sarcastic comedy, but I think it’s important—and I kind of lean that way myself. Also, I hope they laugh!

The proper name of the lovely creature above appears to be “Doom Dragon.” What is also interesting, albeit in a confusing way, is that the images have “101” in their file name (rather than “101b”), where the concept art from “The Picnic” that he published previously had a “104” (rather than “102a”). Either they didn’t pair the episodes as “a” and “b,” used separate numbers, and both episodes moved together by one spot each, or they used the same number for “a” and “b,” and “The Picnic” got promoted later in the development. I wish I knew!
Update: There’s more! He just put up three more images (included above).
Lord Hater sets out to control and win everything in the universe, including conquering The Binglebops and their planet, but his plans are soon diverted when he finds himself accepting Wander’s series of challenges to prove once and for all that he truly is the greatest in the entire galaxy.
