Peter New Year - It's like a pun, or something

So today we have a couple of press releases, for you to peruse over in your comatose hangover state. This first one comes from BABScon, who decided to announce that they got Peter New.

Peter New Year.

It's a pun.

BABSCon is excited to set off the fireworks, spin the buzzers and pop the cork for the New Year, and who better to do it with than Peter New! This year at BABSCon, we want to celebrate not only the iconic, the memorable, and the magical people and moments that have made this fandom what is, but also the “New” show staff, bronies, and projects that are moving our fandom into not only a fun new year, but a bright future. Because of this, Peter is helping us ring in the new year with the start of many more exciting announcements from BABSCon.

Peter’s iconic “Eeyup” has brought such life and character to MLP:FiM’s Big Macintosh, who is he is arguably one of the most beloved male characters of the show.  But Peter New isn’t just a one “Eeyup” kinda guy. Many of the other stallions we meet are voiced by Peter as well, including Rarity’s dad…plus dear old Apple auntie Goldie Delicious. And, just this last year, Peter had an amazing musical number on “Filli Vanilli.” Lest anyone forget, last year Peter also arrived at BABSCon’s Saturday VA panel as the glorious Princess Big Mac.

In addition to his “apple” acting, Peter New is the speaking and singing voice of Sunil Nevla on Littlest Pet Shop, made on-screen appearances on shows such as Psych, Stargate SG-1, Dead Like Me, and Point Blank, and even had a Leo Award Nominated role as Donald Dirk in Sunflower Hour.

Peter joins our other Guests of Honor, including Tara Strong, Cathy Weseluck, Claire Corlett, Ian James Corlett, Brian Drummond, Brynna Drummond, Daniel Ingram, Steffan Andrews, Tony Fleecs, and Heather Breckel. Register now at

  1. Peter New is a total bro, but apparently one of you horsefuckers made him unhappy with /mlp/. (He seems to have removed the messages.) Stop being assholes to the people who work on the show, you fucking autists.

    1. I have no idea why some anons did that, I guess is the hiatus...


  3. Prediction: Everyone who likes Peter New now will hate him this time next year.
    Only based on every minorly important fandom figure I've ever seen.
    Also Happy fucking new year, and I'm not just saying that cos I'm drunk on cider.
