One of the fascinating Angelenos featured in L. Weekly 's People issue. Check out our entire People issue here. Faust, 37, grew up near Annapolis, Md. While she loved the toys that were marketed to little girls in the s — Strawberry Shortcake and My Little Pony were favorites — she wasn't a fan of the related TV shows and books. She preferred her older brothers' comic books and thought Transformers and G.

Joe were pretty cool, too. What Faust wanted to do, she later realized, was give the cute characters in her toy box the action-packed lives that seemed reserved for boys. As an adult, Faust found the chance to do just that.

Eventually she got a job as a storyboard artist for The Powerpuff Girlsa show where the artists actually wrote the episodes. Faust's claim to fame, though, is reviving her own favorite childhood toy. She developed My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magicthe cartoon series that has captured the hearts of children and adults, women and men.

Yes, men. Have you heard of Bronies? They're grown men, often the same guys who obsess over comic book superheroes and sci-fi movies, who are rabid fans of My Little Pony.

Faust is essentially responsible for that phenomenon. The Bronies caught Faust by surprise.

The show was geared toward 6- to 8-year-old girls, and she had already prepared herself for criticism from male viewers. Then Faust and the team noticed something peculiar. The characters were popping up on 4chan, birthplace of some of the funniest — and sometimes meanest — Internet memes. Initially, the ponies were the subject of jokes. Soon, though, they saw that the anonymous 4chan users were becoming big fans. After that, there was no stopping the show's popularity. They had a hit.

Faust left the Pony world after the show's second season, but she hasn't scrapped her mission to make badass cartoons for girls. She recently finished work on Super Best Friends Foreverfive episodes of second shorts for the Cartoon Network, focusing on the teenage adventures of female DC characters.

The girls are relatable: They look like typical teens in superhero uniforms. Faust says Wonder Girl — tall and lanky with large feet — reminds her of herself as a teenager. Though the buzz has been huge, there's no word as to whether there will be more Super Best Friends Forever episodes. Faust is working as a co-producer and head of story on the upcoming Disney series Wander Over Yondercreated by her husband, Craig McCracken.

Faust's personal and professional worlds seem to overlap — even her hobby of sewing plushies morphed into the toy line Milky Way and the Galaxy Girls. She's living the dream, turning her childhood fascinations into cool shows for today's young girls, and adults, too.
