I have the very oldskool My Little Pony pony toys from twenty years ago. Back when their animation wasn't a copycat of every tween program out there...

It's the eyes! I can't stand 'em. There I said it. I never thought I'd have to protect myself here from bashing MLP.

You do realize that the animation of the "oldskool" My Little Pony series was a copycat of every other children's eighties cartoon, right? I haven't seen the more recent direct-to-video movies however, so I can't comment on them. I'll tell you what bugged me about the various older series, though, particularly My Little Pony Tales: the ponies seemed to think that they were human. Always with the picking up of objects with their hooves (without any subtlety whatsoever) -- and absolutely no equestrian mannerisms. Ugh, why be a show about ponies at all, particularly if you're not even going to bother having them be cute?

Tirek needs to return in Friendship is Magic. And be revealed as the one who helped Luna along the path to becoming Nightmare Moon.

I'm tempted to download the whole thing and post an in-depth analysis of exactly what is wrong, crappy, cliched, disturbing, morally ambiguous, preachy, and generally irritating about each episode now. Which I might then attempt to release into the larger sphere of the internet.

The re-cut stuff on youtube was pretty funny. There is some Adult Bonus material within the show, but the level of love for it that you people are displaying here is just insane.

I can accept that it has a place within popular culture, but not that it is righteously adored on its own merits.

I have a few My Little Pony ornaments I think I will put on eBay? Anyone here collect those sort of things? So far I found 2007 Heirloom Ornament and 2004 AGC Triple Treat ornament. She's pretty cute.

I know I have at least one more I just gotta find it.

Some of us don't exactly "righteously adored" it.  I find it to be a decent show on its own merits.  Originally I started watching it because it upset my friend... but my sister wanted to watch it too because she likes kids' shows.  For a kids' show, it certainly has class, and I'd argue that it's better than other children's programming I've watched before.  Furthermore, one of the aspects that totally hooked me was the character design... it's simple and it pops out and it looks like something anyone else can rerecreate and make high quality things with.  This was actually a similar reason with why I fell in love with Futurama.  It's also a reason I like posting ponies, even some of the creepy ones.  Due to the simplistic nature of everything and it's bright design, everything just seems like a good outline to produce other high quality artistic endeavors.... like the creepy ponies that I sometimes find which seem rather artistic to me.

I like Silver Spoon.  Normally it would be because of her silver color scheme and her stylish glasses, but mainly because people keep spelling her name as Silvers Poon.

That alone is enough to make her my favorite character.

I love to hate Silver Spoon. What a total b*tch. She reminds me of the worst kind of girls. They're the girls that think that they are so great, so perfect, so lovable, and so cute, yet they always cling on to some other girl who is much more outstanding than them. They think that they are special, but really they are just a sidekick and everybody knows it. They even acknowledge the fact that they are nothing without their leader. They are just, super shallow. Look at how much she tries to kiss up to Diamond Tiara. We already know she has nothing going in her life. She's entirely gray both mane and coat, she wears glasses (ponies wearing glasses look weird, another reason why I can't stand Twist), and her cutie mark is a silver spoon. Seriously. First off, silver is a very overrated color that is really quite dull. Second, what kind of talent does a spoon suggest? I can see her being a shallow whorse (a ha ha ha, it's punny!). She is seriously a nobody who is going nowhere and has nothing special going on and blindly agrees with her god-like leader. Well I hope she catches an STD and rots.

Well the vibe I got from her is that she's actually rather insecure, is rather nice at heart, but is one of those girls who throws away her deeper goodness out of low self esteem and feeling they can only be liked or appreciated for superficial reasons.  (since there are a few hints that she's much nicer then she lets on.)   I think she has one of the most distinctive character designs as well, but seems to think she needs to suck up to her less attractive BFF due to low self esteem again.  Still I quite liked reading your rant, it did make me laugh a lot.  I have to disagree on the silver being overrated, it's one of my favorite colors (I think silver is a much prettier metal then gold as well.)   Silver Spoon seems like she might have a tarnished heart of silver in her, unlike Diamond who is just a bitch with a heart of bitch. 

The spoon is pretty lame though, I have to admit.  It's like having a crayon or a phone charger or a pencil sharpener tattooed on your ass.  

(I'm saving the STD remark for the next person who pisses me off.)

Actually Silver Spoon gets a touching little moment in the most recent mlp:fim episode. (Though she's her usual bitchy self the rest of the time.)

The cutie mark crusader episodes never interest me all that much, I like the main characters too much, and keep wanting them to be on screen instead.

Last one was a little better thanks to Granny Smith.. although what I *really* want is a Big Macintosh episode, aayup. He just cracks me up every time without fail, I loved it when he ran off with Twilight's doll even after the love spell had worn off.

I think this scene was the only CMC thing that I really liked for the music, and even then the 8-bit remix is way cooler.

Maybe some of the appeal to adults is the fact that all the main characters are in their late teens/early 20's and behave accordingly?

I'm caught up on the latest episodes, I loved the one about Granny Smith, she's adorable! And I agree Zmithy, I think Big Mac should have his own episode. I also watched episode 13 from season one, where Rainbow Dash and Apple Jack have their contest. Why did no one else call Rainbow Dash out on her cheating? Do the ponies really think she's that great that they would fairly give her credit when she cheats in a competition? I hate Rainbow Dash, I really do.

Speaking of this week's episode if baby unicorns already have a horn when they're born wouldn't that make giving birth to one rather hazardous to the mother?

I'm still convinced that Mrs. Cake has been making her rounds. Pumpkin Cake is most likely Carrot Cake's, but she doesn't seem to take after her mother at all- maybe she'll turn out kinda plump like a pumpkin and her mother. On the other hoof, Pound Cake seems to take a little bit after his mother, but I don't see any of his father in there. I was theorizing for a while maybe their color of the coats haven't developed yet as infants/toddlers citing the baby filly seen in "The Mysterious Mare Do Well" as further evidence of this claim, but then I reminded myself of all the other newborns in the nursery. I believe one of them was blue, so that theory is pretty much trashed. Well, there's still hope that maybe when Pound grows, he'll be tall and lanky much like his dad and akin to how Fluttershy was when she was in puberty.

The whole pony genetics explanation at the start was pretty much just trolling the fanbase. smile

The creators/ voice actors keep getting asked weird questions from ultra-nerd fans about stuff like pony genetics and theories about the ramifications of equestria's political balance, so it was only a matter of time before they decided to start screwing with them in response.

I also loved the constant use of the ultra-cute "squee" sound effect for the rubber chicken, that was a nice touch.

Especially when they slowed it down a bit.

When Applejack asked about the twins races my mind went right to Rango's quote about his mother having an "active social life."   flirt

Also, if Mr Cake's explanation would fly (no pun intended) then why wouldn't Applejack already know that?

This is different, those tales were inspirational, but how in any way is this: [full episode link removed]. Pure shit on a stick, unlike Lewis's Narnia classics.

Lewis was talking about a specific area of entertainment which MLP:FiM quite definitely falls under the umbrella of this. You are wrong. Please shut the hell up. I don't like having to defend this pony stuff.
