A little shaky in the start as far as the script goes. It feels a little rushed. But, it got better at the middle when the story gets going. Love the part with the private firm director; lots of character! Needless to say, the animation is top notch! I like the shading, allowing the reader to feel depth as opposed to your run-of-the-mill cartoon. My only suggestion is to keep working on those introductory panels. They could use a little more pacing. I understand you're not trying to make a graphic novel here, but it could be played out a little better.

Ye asked so I shall give. I'll go panel by panel before giving final thoughts.

Panel 1: Nothing much to say here. I like the young cartoony look it has.

Panel 2: Only gripe here is the jump from introduction in panel 1 to passing off to field agent here. Perhaps add the punctuations to represent the character had been talking for some time to make it flow better. Example: "...thank you [insert name here]. This is Zed Zapper signing out. Now back to you, Erin."

Panel 3: Again, nothing much to say. Still liking the art design.

Panel 4: Derpy's hair seems to be kinda spiky. Unless you were going for the "static shocked" look then bravo, you succeed.

Panel 5: Classic. Epic win there. Reminds me of school...

Panel 6: I wonder what happened on the screen. Had to be funny to get those kind of reactions.

Panel 7: Seems to be jumping the gun a bit here. Like changing the TV channel in the middle of a good part. Still, the new "channel" is funnier than the last one. SO no quibble here. Humor beats rationalism again...

Panel 8: The boss's front left leg looks outta place here. Looks broken or something. And that clipboard, wrong angle...

Panel 9: The cutie mark on the camera pony seems a bit sharp edged to fit into the setting of the comic.

Panel 10: I love his expression. That is all.

Panel 11: I think having him wide eyed while saying that would have helped expand the humor of the strip more. Still a good choice of pose.

Panel 12: I KNOW I'm not the first to think "RAPE FACE" on this panel. Perfect expression to finish off what was started in the last panel.

Panel 13: I like the tired and annoyed expression as he seemingly tells us (the readers) to go hang the flyers.

Final thoughts:
The vision behind what this comic is portraying gets a solid 5 from me. I can see what the artist set out to do and I feel he hit it head on with the mini story in strip.

As for originality, I give a 4. Not because it was poor or anything. It's just that I've seen a lot of these jokes so many times I've lost count. The way they were put together feels somewhat original. I like.

The technique used here is a good one that has stood the test of time. I give a 4 because of the little quibbles I mentioned above. All around it is very good.

And the impact? A solid 5. I got the point driven straight home so fast I was spinning and my brain hadn't even left point A yet. The humor here is timeless and only a really dumb idiot would miss it.

I call this an overall success.

The "$" Pony reminds me of J. Jonah Jameson: He fires his employee's Twenty Times a Week.
