My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic


Guidelines to keep in mind!
1) The thread is to be treated as a thread for discussing the show and things related to the show; not as a purely social thread with offhand references to the show 2) If people begin to get off topic, don't join in or sit on the sidelines, use the report feature to help prevent the thread deteriorating and getting locked again. 3) There will be a higher staff presence in the thread.

With that said, enjoy your stay here in Ponyville. Don't be a stranger!


About the Show
I've been pushing the new My Little Pony series all over smashboards since like... November, and people have started to actually take notice. Probably because it's gotten even more popular since then. Therefore, time to make a thread about it.

Now first off, you're probably asking the question.



And the answer is... It's not just a show for little girls! Sure it's made with them in mind, but the things people think of when they hear "little girl's show" aren't a part of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I know, you're looking at that title and going "Yeah right!" When you think of "little girl's show" you're probably thinking of those awful Barbie movies, Care Bears, Strawberry Shortcake, or the old My Little Pony series. All these shows are about frufru girly garbage. You watch it and want to kill yourself.

This series, however, is more akin to old Cartoon Network cartoons and in some cases employs the good old Looney Toons/Tom and Jerry shenanigans we all know and love. Remember when people dropped pianos and anvils on other people? Yeah, that happens in this show. Surely any cartoon fan knows Craig McCracken, the creator of shows like Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. Well his wife, Lauren Faust, who also worked on many of Craig's projects, is the person in charge of this here cartoon. That gives it merit on its own!

How else does this cartoon separate itself from others? Aside from what is arguably the best use of flash animation in a cartoon ever, every character is unique and lovable in their own way. It can be hard to pick a favorite, as you'll love every character for different reasons. Your typical "little girl's show" usually has every character being the one-dimensional girlygirl. In this show, there's only one character interested in "fashion" and such, and even she's far from the typical girlygirl.

But enough of that.

Well, it's not like we didn't really need one. Yours was a blog, the other was a character general, and not everyone has access to the DR.

PR works great.

One of the better humanized ponies out there.

The difference here is that Panty and Stocking sucks.

Also, I don't really like these human interpretations, but meh.

Eh, I never really liked any of them either.

The Trixie one is kinda cool, though.

I'm assuming Suited for Success for the 8 millionth time.



I am very tempted to post every madmax comic so far.

I watched the song portion again.

HOWEVER, I squeezed in two showings of Applebuck Season.
Zajice, you forget one thing about Suited for Success:

Applejack is in that episode.

this whole internet bandwagoning obsession with My Little Pony really creeps me out. it's not just this forum but another forum as well ,where the average user is a bit older than SWF.

just creepy.

also, I'm probably gonna move this to the Media Metro so you guys can creep it up in there. creeps

Haters gonna hate, I suppose.
Just don't knock it 'til you try it.

It's legitimately a good show.

I can't wait for the new episode to be uploaded tomorrow.

I'm not discounting that at all. It very well could be a great show. Could be the greatest children's show ever created.

doesn't make it any less creepy for people who are older than 10, are most likely male, and are infatuated with the show enough to make a forum topic about it and have My Little Pony avatars and signatures
