Lauren Faust And SBFF

I think I have let my love for Lauren Faust's Super Best Friends Forever be known on this blog. These shorts have been a revelation, a wonderful version of Supergirl, Batgirl, and Wonder Girl infused with fun, magic, and even some life lessons.

I couldn't believe it when I heard there was only one more short on the docket when it seemed like such a big hit ... the perfect blend of DCU and MLP. And this mischievous Supergirl trying to do what's right while dealing with a bit of an attitude has been wonderful.

There had to be more ... right?

Well I took the question to Lauren Faust herself, contacting her via DeviantArt, letting her know how well-received the shorts have been at home and here. And I asked if more SBFF were around the corner. Here was her response!

And in case you can't read the jpeg:

Wow! Thanks for the kind reviews--- I'm so glad you, your kids and your readers are enjoying the shorts. Fingers crossed I'll get to make more--- they were really fun and I have a ton of ideas!

So Lauren Faust thinks the shorts were fun to make and she has a ton of ideas for future ones.


With Teen Titans Go! getting a new lease on life in the DCNation block, I recommend that SBFF become the weekly short associated with that cartoon. Those two would be like chocolate and peanut butter.

Seriously, SBFF is just too awesome to go away forever.

More would be, as they say, a no-brainer - they're so smart, charming and witty.

Both Harley and Starfire were mentioned by her in the DC Nation magazine as possible ideas. Both have my full attention!

Kudos Anj for Lauren Faust answering your question! :D

I confess that I feel a little frustrated that when we want something more of a good thing like SBFF or Cosmic Adventures in the 9th Grade we are told "cross your fingers" or "let DC know how you feel" while we are given new animated Batman shows ad nausem.

If we can't get a half hour series of SBFF then I would love to see more shorts, provided they are longer than a minute.

These girls can anchor a half hour show all their only quibble is that much of the action so far seems driven by Batgirl's hyperenthusiasm or else Supergirl's short fuse....Wonder Girl's judicious mein seems to get shorted in the process.
But a half hour show would fix that up in a hurry!!!!

Thanks for all the posts!

I can only hope that the Batgirl, Wonder Girl, MLP, and all other focus groups are as vocal. We need to get this done!
