Shady Mist posted a topic in FiM Show DiscussionDuring the song in the season 8 premiere "School of Friendship" there is a part where the book is levitating but Twilight's horn is not lit and in the season 8 finale there is a pink stream of magic going into Pinkie. Is pinkie levitating the book? Does one of her parents have a kind of genetic disease that keep the horn from growing out but still exists, Marble and Limestone might be earth ponies but having Maud and Pinkie will explain "some" of their abilities with Maud's super speed and strength from "Maud Pie", and Pinkie's ability to teleport in "Party of One" and "A Friend in Deed", and being able to keep up with Rainbow Dash by using a speed spell in "Party of One". P.S. Please don't say that this was just an animation error in the first picture, i know it is, unless the writers go back to this in season 9.
So I still see a lot of people still seem to think Derpy was an "animation error." From the first time I heard of her and saw her I was like "Yeah right, animation error " I loved working with flash (which is initially why I was interested in MLP) back when I had a class with it and know pretty well how it all works. Derpy had messed up eyes AND a stupid mouth initially- so having 2 mistakes was fishy to me. The only "ERROR" is that she showed up in the finished episode. It turns out that the infamous scene was changed somewhere in the editing process and widened. Doing that brought her on screen. Whoever did that didn't notice that she was now visible in the wider shot. Here is a video interview with one of the animators from season 1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=2490&v=stSvuwLg3Eo The Derpy part is at 25:36 Also Vinyl Scratch's eyes were originally gray- then red- but are toned down to magenta by a color correction filter
I'm surprised no one made a poll for this. So do you think Derpy's eyes are really an "animation error" or was one of the animators just messing around? Things to consider: She was in the first episode- which was long done BEFORE the show ever aired and before any bronies. Background/crowd ponies are pretty much just "copy, paste, and recolor" which makes me even more suspicious of the "animation error" excuse. The computer isn't going to randomly paste an eye inverted. (I've worked with flash before) I know that If I was an animator I would try to sneak goofy stuff in the background once and a while. So what do you guys think?
