Rob Renzetti is a former animator and director for My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. He is credited as story editor for seasons one and two.

Renzetti initially became involved with Friendship is Magic primarily through series creator Lauren Faust, with whom Renzetti previously worked on Cartoon Network's Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. As showrunners, Renzetti and Faust finalized all the story premises for season one and assigned each script to one of the writers.[1] Renzetti and Faust were also involved in every script of season two.[2]

In a 2015 interview, Faust referred to Renzetti as the "Spock" to her "Captain Kirk", stating that during the production process, Renzetti would often focus on the "logical" aspects of a scene or episode while she focused on the emotion.[3]

After season two was written, Renzetti departed from the series,[2] soon after Faust, to serve as story editor and supervising director on the Disney Channel original series Gravity Falls—in which the character of Bobby Renzobbi is named after him. He was succeeded as story editor for My Little Pony by Meghan McCarthy.

Outside My Little Pony, Renzetti is best known for creating the Nickelodeon animated series My Life as a Teenage Robot, for which he was also a director, writer, and executive producer. Among his other professional credits include being a writer and storyboard artist for 2 Stupid Dogs and The Powerpuff Girls, director and animator for Dexter's Laboratory, sheet timer for Samurai Jack and Adventure Time, and post supervising director for Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. He also created the Mina and the Count series of animated shorts.
