Storyboard Artists of All Episodes

By MutatingRaven

For several weeks now, MutatingRaven alias Raven Molisee (@Raveneesimo on Twitter), storyboard artist for our beloved show, has been putting up journal entries on her DeviantArt account in which she listed the two (senior and junior) storyboard artists of the upcoming episode. (This information has since also been incorporated into the episode info boxes on mlp.wikia.com.)

Now she has obtained the same data for the past episodes, in particular all from season one. She “just had to talk to Sibsy!” They can be found in this one huge journal entry. Thank you!

For more background on the names, check this crew page or the IMDb. Here is the Derpy Hooves News post on the topic. “Seeds of Chaos” must’ve been the working title of The Return of Harmony.

I have reproduced the listings after the break, taking liberties with a few typos. Please tell me if I changed anything in error. I’m also planning to keep it in sync with Raven’s journal, so check back from time to time. (I won’t add an “Update” note for each addition. Seems pointless.)

Season One

Comment by Raven: “I’m not sure how the directorial duties were distributed since Lauren was still in the mix, so here’s just the board artists. Of note here is that the boarding duties were more split-down-the-middle than in season two, where the senior/junior system took over.”

Season Two

Comment by Raven: “As I’ve stated before, season two was done with one lead storyboard artist and one junior artist paired together, the idea being to give the episodes more cohesion. (I think… Don’t quote me!) And technically it’s #27 and #28 – Seeds of Chaos parts one and two: Tom, Sabby, Kenny, Mike West.”

Season Three

Extrapolating from comments by Baloney Brony and Raven, the directorial duties are now (or have been since season 2) equally distributed between Jayson Thiessen and James Wootie Wootton (don’t forget his second “t”).

  1. This is gold. This kind of information should be specified in individual episode credits, like it is in Pound Puppies.
