Flamingo1986 (Zachary Rich) presents "Present Prank", a short animation starring Pinkie Pie from the hit TV series, "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic".

Howdy Everypony! ^^

Here's my very first official animation to come out of my training here at the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD). Being a fan of the new "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" series, I decided to create a puppet of Pinkie Pie (my favorite pony) in Flash and animate her in a little short.

This was originally created as a three-part assignment for my "2D Character I" class here at SCAD. The .FLA file for the puppet rig will be uploaded soon for those of you who would like to use the rig for your own pony animations. I'll also be uploading a tutorial on how to properly use it as well.

This took me 130 hours from start to finish (40 hours to build the puppet, 80 hours to animate it, and 10 hours for post-production editing).

It was cute enough to turn me into a babbling idiot. That's all I have to say... Or type.

That was the cutest thing I have ever seen. I like how you made an alternate ending to that episode. The movement was good and the animation was, to be honest, much better than most fan animation usually are.

Nice work as always and keep up the amazing work.

That was so adorabIe, I Ioved the sound effects. They just added to the cuteness of Pinkie's actions. Music aIso compIimented it niceIy, heIped with the sad feeIing of Pinkie being aII aIone and being troIIed by CeIestia. The animation was aIso reaIIy weII done, very cIose to the shows in fact which impressed me and the end of Gummy in the box was adorabIe.
