"It's Pony" was created by Ant Blades and is inspired by a short from Nickelodeon’s 2015 International Animated Shorts Program.

The cast for the series includes Jessica DiCicco from "Adventure Time" as Annie, Josh Zuckerman from "Strange Angel" as Pony, Ave Benrubi from E.R. as Dad, and India de Beaufort as Mom. Annie is an optimistic farm girl living in the city with her family and Pony, who is naïve and impulsive, but loves Annie him more than anything. Dad treats Pony as a nuisance but shares a special bond with Annie, and mom is a prankster who loves Annie and Pony’s relationship.

The 20-episode second season of "It’s Pony" consists of comedic adventures between Annie and Pony. From crashing a comic convention to battling a swarm of revenge-seeking flies, Annie and Pony’s find their adventures testing the limits of their friendship. “We are thrilled to greenlight season two of a show where no matter what happens, everything is better when Annie and Pony are together,” Hahn said.
