Added to the BABSCon guest list today is writer Josh Haber, whose “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” credits include the Season 4 episodes “Castle Mane-ia” and the recent “Simple Ways.” Josh Haber is also credited as a writer for “Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters” and acting in the occasional TV series like “Gilmore Girls.”
Josh Haber joins his fellow “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” writers Meghan McCarthy and Amy Keating Rogers, and Natasha Levinger at BABSCon. Other BABSCon guests include voice actors Andrea Libman (Pinkie Pie & Fluttershy), Tara Strong (Twilight Sparkle), Tabitha St. Germain (Rarity), and Brynna Drummond ( Seed). Musical guests include Odyssey (aka Eurobeat Brony), and Tarby.
When asked what caught someone's interest in “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” enough to become a Brony (fan of the series who outside the target demographic), he/she will cite the show's writing. Writers like Josh Haber have develop an imaginative world filled with memorable characters who learn valuable life lessons about friendship without feeling too preachy. And there's some clever humor thrown in to boot.
So attendees of “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” can take the weekend for BABSCon to meet with and thank Josh Haber & other talent from the series for their hard work. And they can take in a weekend of Brony camaraderie where friendship truly is magic.
