The cast of Boston Legal rides the Pony - VIDEO

My Little PonyThe cast of Boston Legal is now moving to children's toys. This only seems like a joke, but it's not. William Shatner, James Spader and Candice Bergen are among the celebrities and artists who will be designing new versions of "My Little Pony", the toy from the 1980's which launched an animated television series and movie.

(UPDATE: Stacey Luchs, a spokeswoman for the show, said Thursday that Shatner and Spader were unaware of the venture and would not participate.)

The special ponies will be auctioned off by Hasbro as a charity fundraiser. Other pony-designing celebrities include LeAnn Rimes, Debbie Gibson and Danny Aiello. Artists designing ponies include illustrator Catalina Estrada from Spain, New York graffiti artist-turned-designer Claw Money and Japanese manga artist Junko Mizuno.

Still, it beats having to redesign Planet Unicorn.

I do wonder what Shatner's pony will look like. Will it have a toupee and sing badly? Will in speak in short, staccato bursts? I! AM! SHATNER'S! PONY! What would you pay for the honor of playing with Shatner's pony? Okay, I'll stop now.

The following is the intro to the animated My Little Pony. Hopefully the artists will be able to use it as inspiration.

Boston Legal makes me want to smoke cigars and drink scotch. This is the most creative and humorous spun
series that has hit the air. Way to go, Mr. Kelley and writers.

Actually, according to an update by AP, the Boston Legal publicist says neither Shatner or Spader are aware of this and are not participating.
