My Little Pony Animator in Prison for Child Porn - Over 60,000 Images Found by

Wysom is listed as a "Character Builder" and "Animator" for the Episode "Appleoosa's Most Wanted", seen above.

According to local news outlet The Ottawa Citizen, an Animator for My Little Pony and Littlest Pet Shop has been sentenced to 28 months in prison for possessing and sharing child pornography. Tom Wysom, 55, was arrested and found to be in possession of over 60,000 images of child porn, as well as 1625 videos. Ottawa police tracked his IP address when investigating a peer-to-peer network.

According to IMDB, Wysom was an animator and character builder for 26 episodes of My Little Pony and 23 episodes of Littlest Pet Shop between 2012 an 2015.

We've copy-pasted the original article below.



An Ottawa artist who helped animate children’s TV shows has been sentenced to 28 months in prison for possessing more than 60,000 images of child pornography and sharing them online.
Tom Wysom, 55, has worked on TV productions such as My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Littlest Pet Shop, according to the Internet Movie Database.
Wysom was sentenced earlier this month after pleading guilty to the charges in December, two months after police executed a search warrant at his home in Old Ottawa South.
Police found 60,165 pictures — many of them duplicates — along with 1,626 videos, some of which depicted adults engaging in sexual behaviours with children. In some of the images, young girls had their hands and feet bound.
In a pre-sentence report, presented to court, Wysom told a probation officer that he developed an addiction to adult pornography about a decade ago, but slowly became desensitized to it and “needed something more.” He turned to child pornography, Wysom said, which became a way to deal with his clinical depression and other medical issues.
A forensic psychiatrist, Dr. Jonathan Gray, conducted a sexual behaviours assessment of Wysom and concluded he had a “pedophilic disorder.” Wysom told Gray he turned to child porn in response to the untreated stress he was experiencing.
Justice David Berg took exception to Wysom’s attempt to blame outside forces for his behaviour.
“I think that you are still quite far from comprehending that the problem is you and only you,” the judge told Wysom in his decision. “I think that you are still trying to rationalize your behaviour to yourself and to others in the face of society’s reaction to what you have done.”
The judge told Wysom he could have erased the images on his computer and sought professional help, but chose instead to continue on his destructive path because “he didn’t think he would get caught.”
“The stressors in his life may have led him to throw caution to the wind, but the stressors did not create in Mr. Wysom an ability to take pleasure from those images. That ability pre-existed the stressors,” Berg said.
Court heard that Wysom was born and raised in Wales, where he worked as a postal clerk. He came to Canada in 1992, and hitch-hiked and camped his way across the country before becoming a permanent resident in 1996. He has studied fine art and commercial animation, and once had his work featured at Ottawa’s Cube Gallery.
Dr. Gray told the court that Wysom was a low risk to re-offend or have sexual contact with children.
The judge said he had to sentence Wysom to a prison term — a sentence of two years or more — in order to sufficiently denounce his conduct and deter others from the same path.
Earlier this year, the Court of Appeal for Ontario noted there were now so many reports of child porn-related crime in Ottawa that investigators had to triage their work by “how bad the child pornography is.” Offenders regularly access child porn through peer-to-peer and encrypted internet networks.
Wysom was arrested after a member of the Ottawa Police Service’s Internet Child Exploitation Unit conducted an investigation of a file sharing network with an IP address in Ottawa."

    4. Judging by the low sentence, you've already seen it on /b/ anyway.

      Big numbers + low sentence indicates no new finds appeared when they dumped his PC into Interpol
      Now Jared, that fella was actually *producing* new shit, not just murdering his bandwidth with poorly named emule image queues.
      I know of how this works because there was a yuuuuuge raid in my area years ago on a guy who was a children's show director back in the 70s (Löwenzahn) and it was found the AA like "Virtuous Paedophile" group he supposedly created for rehab and prevention/intervention had actually been engaging in sex tourism in Asia.
      The members who only had copies of the stuff got off light, 1-3 years
      The thinking is that the less offensive ones will like drug addicts lead you to bigger and bigger suppliers up the chain. Director dude himself got the full 20 though.
      One of the few times I wish this happened to you guys though, because your legal system would have massacred him, multiple life sentence for sure. (Approximately 500k infractions, with a lot of new hits)
      So what you can expect with Mr Wysom is they will grill him as to where he got it, if it was from a site that is still up, they will raid and seize it as a honeypot, if not try to run down the original owners, if some materials were mailed they might try a sting operation, and the story does mention p2p resources so they might let him back online eventually to act as a worm carrier. Basically 2 to 5 says to me that he's offered full cooperation.

      Hey, it makes sense, the most dangerous ones are those no one knows about, right? Especially if they run some hokey advocacy group or NGO as a cover.

    3. Psychological projection is a theory in psychology in which the human ego defends itself against unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others.[1] For example, a person who is habitually intolerant may constantly accuse other people of being intolerant. It incorporates blame shifting.

    4. All these hollow insecure lefties trying to throw shade kind of prove you right. Why are lefties always trying to defend pedophilia and pedophiles? You don't need a political affiliation to know having sex with children is wrong! Just because you point out that a fuckton of em are pedos now you are right wing! Well I guess I am right wing too because I dont want to have sex with children lmao

    5. I sort of took that to mean left handed people....not left wing / right wing....I mean I guess either way I am on the left... but def not a pedo so in both cases my existence in and of itself disperses that claim as false...sooo

    3. So that would be no, then.

      We get it, Wyson did a bad and getting the punishment for it. Doesn't really give you permission to dox him over it.

      Also, knowing what little Canadian Law I do know, I can almost guarantee one of the images found was NOT of an IRL Child.
      Apparently Canada even thinks drawn images are a no-no.

  8. Welp, this is quite shocking. This is truly the impetus for me to not watch FiM ever again. This motherfucker deserved his punishment (and blaming it on clinical depression and other medical issues? Depression and stress don't cause you to commit crimes, if you have stress and depression, get treatment for it, he's fucked up in the head!!), but it's too light, his career's fucking dead so lock him up until he dies!!!! I hope he gets brutally beaten to death in prison.

    And well, I can definitely see the death of MLP: FiM. Now that this has been exposed, a lot of families most likely won't want their daughters (the true target audience of the show), especially after it's heard that after ToonKriticY2K/TitcrapperY2K did his crime, I heard a lot of kids might not go to the conventions and they might be afraid to come out as bronies because of him, and when you count all the brony pedophile outings this year and this now, a lot of parents probably won't want any of their kids to watch the show now, not that they should as it's a piece of shit now.

    Though I don't like her, I'm sure Lily's gonna be mentioning this along with other MLP fandom members.

      I thought the show and fandom had been going downhill anyways, but I don't know how Hasbro/DHX are going to handle this, it's public and it can't be swept under the rug. If they're able to handle it well though, then that's something, that's really all I can say for now.

      Luckily the general public isn't quite AS dense as you are so most people won't bother boycotting MLP based on the actions of a single sicko. Plus they'd also have to boycott Littlest Pet Shop for consistency's sake, buuuut something tells me you didn't think of that since you seem to be one of 'those' ex-bronies. You know, those guys who defect to the totally-not-kiddie-diddly otaku fandom *cough*loliporn*cough* and, for some unknown godawful reason, stick around to point and laugh at even the slightest bit of negative news that goes on in the fandom. That's pretty sad, my dude.

  22. Canada has a real pedo problem as they used to allow nude pictures of children as long as it was artistic and only clamped down on it when they were getting shamed by other countries blaming them for the filth they were cleaning up.
    If fact they only acted when other counties told them if they didn't act they would, of coarse Canada shut one of the biggest offenders down and passed the blame to other countries the childporn had gone to, blaming his customers rather than one of their own citizens. Don't believe me? Look up "Project spade" and you see how they shift the blame.

      As McVeigh proves, knowing they could die actually emboldens this as it proves they fight for a "just cause"
