About us

Joanna Lewis



Born in the suburbs of our nation’s capital, Joanna always knew she was destined for greatness.  Four year old Joanna believed that meant being crowned princess of America.  While she hasn’t quite reached that goal, she’s proud of what she’s accomplished so far.  After graduating college in 2004, she packed her bags, kissed her parents and drove out West.  She was thrilled when she landed her first paid real live Hollywood  job as a PA on ABC’s “ALIAS”.  Eventually, she found her way to Nickelodeon and Butch Hartman.   He gave her many opportunities and many warnings “not to screw up”.  So far she’s done pretty well and currently has a dream job as a writer on his cartoon “TUFF Puppy”.   She lives in Glendale with her very handsome husband and her adorably mischievous two year old daughter. She thought her life couldn’t get much better and then she found her writing partner, Kristine Songco.   Together the girls create magic both on and off the page.   Currently, they are working on figuring out how to leave a trail of glitter wherever they go.  The end.


Kristine Songco



Kristine Songco knew she wanted to be a writer from the moment her short story about a sleepy bunny won her a Pizza Hut gift certificate in the third grade.  She grew up in Diamond Bar, a suburban town in California where nothing exciting ever happens, but someone saw Snoop Dogg fill up on gas once and that was pretty cool.  She attended Cal State Fullerton and graduated with honors in 2007.  She’s been at Nickelodeon ever since, working on shows like The Mighty B!, Fanboy and Chum Chum, and (currently) TUFF Puppy.  There she met Joanna Lewis, decided she was one of her favorite people, and entered into a consensual writing relationship with her.  According to legend, you know they’re coming when you hear the sound of clicking heels and laughter.  In her free time, Kristine enjoys baking, taking pictures of the stuff she just baked, and making greeting cards.

  1. Congrats on the writing gig! I look forward to seeing your work!

    For FiM, remember that a solidly built world with relatable, flawed but striving, non-stereotypical characters gives children (and adults) room to imagine. Slapdash worldbuilding with throwaway lines and random events and villains who get away with things are there for jokes alone, don't survive rewatching, and don't sell toys.

    To see what I mean, research the backlash against most of Merriweather Williams' episodes of FiM, and note that the most common negative reaction is "____ was the idiot of the week, acting out of character for a throwaway gag."

  9. I am soooooo confused! I watched the My Little Pony episode A Perfect Pear, which is one of favorites, and it never actually mentioned what happened the Applejack, Applebloom and Big Mac's parents. Did they die or run away? Can you help me please? Thanks!

    2. Like Rosemarie's baby, it was my understanding that we are not meant to know how the apple family was orphaned. I am however glad that they decided to show who they were and how they lived. It also makes me happy that love and relationships are becoming more of a part in the storyline, not for any cheap thrill, but for the emotional verasimilitude of friendship. It may have also cleared up how the family geneology got smudged, perhaps it wasn't a pie, but a pear in there, maybe? I hope pinky can weather the shock... point is, sometimes not knowing is just as important for imagination, as knowing.
