The issue here is, MLP 80's and the new MLP are barely the same cartoon.

Past using the name and ponies, they actually are not trying to reach the same audiences. 80s MLP was actually just sweet and saccarin cartoons for girls under 10 (at the time). The new MLP seems to be more aimed at Tween level with a lot of more advanced older kid/adult level humor heavily sprinkled in (ie, Animaniacs, Bullwinkle, etc).

The cartoon designs were created by professional animators and look nothing like the toys. I'm a fan of the show and I have no clue why anyone other than a preteen girl would want the toys from Hasbro. Go to practically any geek/sci-fi con and you'll find handmade toys that not only look more like the animation designs but have more characters that fans care about. Hasbro has no clue how to cash in on merch that appeals to a geek audience.

What's with some men's obsessions with having to act like a manly man all their lives?

Your standards of manliness are arbitrary, and don't make you any better or manly than someone who watches My Little Pony. In fact, it just makes you kind of sad that you feel you have to live up to unrealistic "manly" standards the media sold everyone 60 years ago to sell cigarettes and movies.

80s cartoons sucked. The animation was mostly horrible, and most of them were 30-minute commercials for toys or cereal.

Now, the early-90s... that's when cartoons were great.

I'm a 37 year old woman who liked the original MLP. In fact, a few months ago, I pulled a box of my old Ponies out of my mom's attic and gave them to my eight year old daughter, who was tickled pink.

This morning, my almost four year old son came running through the living room at breakneck speed, arms out at his sides like wings, yelling 'WHOOSH!' at the top of his lungs. I asked him if he was a jet planed, and he looked at me like I had three heads.

"No, Mommy, I'm Rainbow Dash. DUH."

There is nothing wrong with wanting something simple and happy and cute as a route of escapism.You sound like miserable, mean adults with no sense of light or fun in your lives.


some folks are, some folks rarely encounter emotions such as joy or happiness, but instead live in a tortuous gray little world made of shades of misery. These people, the closest they get to joy is when someone else is suffering because of something they did, it's that little bit of control that brings them thrills.

[desmond.imageshack.us image 375x500]

Yes, limited animation, retarded plots, ineffectual villains, a parade of Odious Comic Relief characters in the vein of Scooby-Doo, awful dialogue, and blatant toy advertising was "the peak of cartoons".

Much as I love the 80's cartoons, I'll take their 90's and 00's versions any day of the week.

You just described MLP: FIM.


I'm going to analyze your assessment step-by-step. Let's see if it holds up:

limited animation [ ? ]/[Y&N]
This one is a bit odd. What do you mean 'limited'? If you mean as limited as the Hanna Barbara Cartoons, then you are an idiot. If you mean limited as far as reusing animation then 'kind of'. If you mean limited with regards to perspective then you are correct. But they are definitely more 'mobile' than a lot of the older cartoons (and don't use the scrolling techniques anime does). The other thing is that the look of the show is generally pretty minimalist, but that's a style.

retarded plots [Y&N]
Yes, some of the plots can be rather retarded. But that's just it: SOME of them, most of them hold up well though. I'm a nice guy though, so i'll give a partial to this one.

ineffectual villains [ ? ]
This one ... I don't know how to analyze this one. The show has only had 3 or 4 actual 'villains' in its run. But I don't know what to say about them being 'ineffectual'. Do you mean that they didn't WIN? Because if that's the criteria then virtually all villains could be called 'ineffectual' at some point. If you mean they didn't kill anyone onscreen, then I need to remind you that that is a bit much.
On the other hand, the villains actually did manage to partly succeed in their endeavors... but a small victory for a villain is required to establish them as a threat. Discord managed to succeed in mind-breaking the cast... but was ultimately imprisoned. Nightmare Moon was successful in imprisoning Celestia, but was purified. Chrysalis succeeded in impersonating a princess, brainwashing the captain of the guard, defeating Celestia (a physical god) in single combat, overrunning the capital, and capturing the main 6 before being expelled from the city (but was seemingly unharmed by it). So... I personally call that pretty successful, but as she ultimately failed, i don't know how to call it.

a parade of Odious Comic Relief characters in the vein of Scooby-Doo [ N ]
No. Absolutely no. There are perhaps 2 or 3 'comic relief characters', and a few one-shots. If you wanted to be technical, I suppose the count could be as high as five, but two of those weren't used enough to be grating.
(The list would be Snips, Snails, Big McLargehooves, Grackle, and arguably Derpy Hooves/Ditzy Doo). That is being as generous as I possibly can to you as well - Grackle and BigMcLargehooves only appeared in one episode each, and Grackle only for a scene. Snips and Snails, while dumb, do have some degree of characterization beyond 'humor' (thought it isn't much). Derpy Hooves, meanwhile, is a well-meaning lass, though I suppose she could be considered a 'comic relief character'.
So why, with all this, do I say no? Because they aren't odious. They never really 'get on your nerves'... well, I can see Snips and Snails as possibly grating, but two isn't a parade. Nothing like Scooby Doos horrible cousins and those ilk. God they were obnoxious.

awful dialogue [ N ]
Have you even watched the show? What dialogue is awful? The quips are usually fairly amusing, and the interactions believable. The only episode I would single out for having subpar dialogue would be "Ponyville Confidential", and that's only because a character named "Rarity" randomly slips out of her 'accent' (though its probably a voice actor issue).

blatant toy advertising [ N ]

They have avoided adding random, superfluous named gear to the show for the sake of selling more merchandise. The train (which I presume has a toy) doesn't show up a whole lot, and (to my knowledge) hasn't been named. The hot air balloon in the opening credits (which I know has a toy) doesn't show up in the show very often either; only one episode comes to mind where it was used (and it was only when the non-pegasi needed to get into the clouds). Given that said balloon appears in every opening, it didn't smack of 'product placement' so much as 'using what made sense given the story'.
There is, however, one episode that does seem to be rather product-placey... if only because the plot revolves around a pet that doesn't make many future appearances. In "May the Best Pet Win" the speedy pegasus character named "Rainbow Dash" eventually settles on a tortoise (after plot hijinx and a moral"). The last scene has the tortoise (christened "Tank") using a helipack... thing... to fly. The turtle is almost never mentioned again, and is only show briefly in subsequent episodes. I only presume that that one episode was made partly for product, but one episode in 52 (i think) is not enough to call it 'blatant toy advertising'.

Based on this analysis, I can conclude that you are incorrect in your assertion that the poster "Described MLP"

If you have a retort, I am willing to hear it. I'm a reasonable fellow, after all.

lizyrd: Draq
Growing up is something teenagers do to be less fun. Once you're an adult, there's no need for it anymore

Not sure what you mean, Peter Pan. Seems to me that as an adult, I need to work to support myself and my family. I need to take care of my house, the yard and the family cars. I need to spend both money and time wisely to create the best chance for happiness for both myself and my family. Watching cartoons meant for 10-year olds and buying the associated toys is incompatible.

The toys are still there when you become an adult, they are just supposed to change. I got the same kick out of the new trailer I bought for my side business as I did when I got an NES at 8. I get the same satisfaction out of a six-pack as I got out of a new CD at 13. There's just something off about someone who's tastes remain with cartoons and toys through their 20s.

My toddler used to watch a lot of Blues Clues.

It's actually a pretty good show, (Steve version, Joe seems uncomfortable ) usually a nice little tidbit of goofiness tossed in for the adults that have to see it over and over and over and over.

Fark has some weird people. However, what PICTURES they post isn't a very good indicator of how weird they are (in most cases). Politics tab shills are some of the most bizarre, and they don't post any pictures at all. Very intelligent people can post ponies just as well as very dumb people. Posting '60's Spiderman' isn't indicative that one watched the show, just that they found that picture amusing. Sure, some people who post 60's Spiderman have watched the show, but not all.

Try figuring people out with more reliable methods than you currently employ. Considering some farkers are probably parents whose kids watch the show (a very likely scenario) and may well post ponies... well... let's just say that your little observation is too inaccurate to be considered anything approaching a 'rule'.


In my experience topcon spends a lot of time on the politics tab, talking about how everyone who isn't him is stupid, weird, and probably a freak, so his system works within that context.

Then I watched another episode, then another and that cinched it. I bought every episode from iTunes in 720p (fortunately among them being the unedited Derpy episode). It's a great show.

I finally sat down and watched an episode last year to see what all the fuss was about. Even though I like cartoons I expected to hate it because I thought it would be just like the old 80s show, only to find out it was nothing even remotely like it. Then I watched another episode, then another and that cinched it. I bought every episode from iTunes in 720p (fortunately among them being the unedited Derpy episode). It's a great show.

A few days ago I also looked up an episode from G1 on Youtube, oh god that was bad.

Mopofdeath: I gave one episode a shot "hearts and hooves day"


I tried one cola. It wasn't coke or pepsi or even RC, but it was a cola. That's all it was.



Seriously, Hearts and Hooves day isn't a good example episode on several levels. First off, the Cutie Mark Crusaders are not only for kids, THEY ARE KIDS. The girl who does Sweetie Belle is about 13. Their story lines are kid centric themes.

If you want to understand why MLP appeals to adult men as well as everyone else you should watch some of the following:


Return of Harmony 1and 2 (guest starring John de Lancie of Star Trek fame)
Lesson Zero
Party of One
Applebuck Season
Stare Master
Feeling Pinkie Keen
Luna Eclipsed

Those are some of the better episodes for adult themes, brilliant art, mythological references, and general good ol' fashioned cartoon gags.

Then again, I never quite understood the appeal of merchandise. I never felt the need to have a Breaking Bad-themed calendar or a WoW-themed coffee mug.

I also dislike crowds, so I never felt tempted to go to big geek conventions; I'd rather just hang out with my friends and drink absurd amounts of coffee/beer while talking about all kinds of things.

I don't disagree.

I don't get obsessive fandoms. I don't get conventions, cosplay, fanfic, fanart, or 90% of the stuff associated with Bronies or Trekkies or sports fans that go to games wearing no shirt and a cheese hat in sub-20 degree weather.

But, if it makes these people happy, good for them. Just as if someone feels that work work work I HAVE NO TIME FOR FRIVOLITY is the path to happiness, well good for them.


I write fanfic, I totally agree with you (also, I'm smart enough not to mention this fact about me to people I meet IRL; I love all y'all on Fark, but nothing here matters).

The thing that annoys me about a lot of fans is that they get so myopic. Bronies are hardly alone in this. Still, if fandom is what makes them happy, they should go for it; at the same time, they need to understand that not everyone shares the same interests. This seems to be hard for some people to grasp.

I never watched the original MLP, and I haven't seen the current one. I am generally indifferent to bronies, though I enjoy indulging in some mockery. But I mock just about everything.

That said, even though Lyzard sounds like that "26 minutes to the gym" guy, he does have some good points. Fact is, people are going to judge you if you own lots of plastic pony toys. This can hurt your social capital. If you're cool with this, good on you, but don't expect society to conform to you.

Likewise, you do have to make choices with your time, though I wouldn't really hate on someone for watching MLP instead of the Super Bowl (personally, I have no interest in either). Again though, one of them is going to be harder to talk about in public, and you have to accept that.

I'm not going to argue that watching MLP is somehow more wasteful than posting on Fark, but there is a price to fandom.

Maybe, Just this once, you can step outside yourself and see how not everyone likes a show made for 12 year old girls, and having it shoved in your face every 12 seconds with no invitation. I really had no problem myself with MLP, until it hit the realworld outside fark and the rest. suddenly even NPR is covering this garbage.

I'm not manly enough to sit in bars for 8 hours when I'm not working in the acid mines, but when I go to the local shop to play some games and shoot the shiat, I don't really appreciate the constant iphone and laptop streaming the latest youtube MLP parody and episodes on infinite volume.

So, no bronies, you aren't some special secret club that no one understands. We all understand. You need to stop obsessing over a cartoon, cause that crap ain't right.

Growing up is something teenagers do to be less fun. Once you're an adult, there's no need for it anymore

Not sure what you mean, Peter Pan. Seems to me that as an adult, I need to work to support myself and my family. I need to take care of my house, the yard and the family cars. I need to spend both money and time wisely to create the best chance for happiness for both myself and my family. Watching cartoons meant for 10-year olds and buying the associated toys is incompatible.

The toys are still there when you become an adult, they are just supposed to change. I got the same kick out of the new trailer I bought for my side business as I did when I got an NES at 8. I get the same satisfaction out of a six-pack as I got out of a new CD at 13. There's just something off about someone who's tastes remain with cartoons and toys through their 20s.

Guess what? You can do all of that AND enjoy something that's "childish". In the real world, there is more than "either-or", "us or them", "with us or against us", etc. I'm sorry that you feel the need to overdo maturity so that others won't see you as "immature", but many of us do work, and support families, and have social lives, and watch cartoons.

An amazing concept, isn't it? Hope your mind can handle that.


No, both money and time are limited. Do I go mow a lawn with this free time, thereby earning $40 and keeping the customer happy? Or do I sit on my ass and watch TV (news, sports, or children's cartoon)? Do I work on the house, whether engaging in needed improvements or just cleaning, or do I sit on my ass and watch TV? Do I go for dinner and cocktails with my wife and friends, or do I use that money for pieces of plastic shaped to look like something on TV?

There is a reason my cars are paid off, I have no credit card debt, own and operate a small but profitable business aside from my full-time job, have a fixer-upper that is rapidly becoming a nice house, and have enough money saved to see myself through some hard times. It's because I recognized in my mid 20s, after years of foolishness, that when money and time are concerned it is always an either-or situation. Either you spend wisely Or you waste.

Your accusation that I live this way based on how I want other people to see me is bullshiat. I live this way because I wasted too much time and money in my youth. I had a "holy shiat" moment when I saw an example of where I was headed. I don't have money to waste, and I certainly don't have time.

Hope your mind can handle that.

80s nostalgia is about, "everything was better back in my day," and has nothing to do with MLP being childish. Reality TV tends to appeal to the lowest common denominator of humor (slapstick and dirty jokes that are only "funny" because they're supposedly risque) but doesn't too often play the adult/childish card (see the C.S. Lewis quote above)

Sorry, I grew up with He-man and centurions and watched re-runs of Transformers in the late 90s in high school and despite still liking those shows (and I was, in fact, old enough to know better) I have to be honest, their animation wasn't good.

Also, a lot of modern animation isn't "anime-style," a lot of japanese animation draws stylistic inspiration from American production, and decrying things as "stupid anime-style bullshiat" is generally an excuse being used by someone who can't admit to their real, irrational reasons for hating it.

Pointless arbitrary "manliness" is pointless and arbitrary. The ones who care most about their "man-card" are the ones who are most insecure about their "manliness".

Twenty-somethings hopping onboard a children's show bandwagon is unsettling. As someone above mentioned, it's like the weirdos who liked teletubbies. Or power rangers. It isn't like a guy in his 60s buying a Howdy Doody toy, either. These are adults without a nostalgic connection to the show. I've recently tried to watch shows that I watched as a kid, and had to turn it off because they were terrible. I can't imagine trying to watch something geared to a 10 year old if I didn't watch it at 10. Being so into it that you collect the crappy merchandise, too? Grow up.

It isn't manliness I'm talking about, it's adulthood. I know, it's great fun to reject traditional expectaions and roles. All it implies to me is that you need something to do with your life. I think that the reason I have such disdain for these types of hobbies/obsessions is that they are a combination of everything I despise: television, consumerism, delayed adulthood.

I have little use for traditional gender roles. I do a lot of stuff that would be considered manly, but I also cook, bake, do laundry and clean the bathroom. I have no problem with a man who works as a florist, nurse or decorator. Or a woman who works as a mechanic. If mom is the breadwinner, a stay-at-home dad seems pretty cool. Men who like ballet or musical theater don't bother me. I do have a problem with a 27 year old boy, whether his boyhood is manifested through ponies or some other immature deviation.

Yeah, nobody cares about you because, while watching a children's TV show when you don't have children falls well within the norms for "eh, got a lot of time on your hands, do ya?" obsessing over a long-canceled childrens' television show and actually collecting children's toys as if they were unique or valuable easily leaps well past the line of "incredibly farking creepy".

Things you can collect as an adult that are nerdy, but not creepily so: models or miniatures that you assemble/paint yourself, games that you actually play (Magic: The Gathering, most Video Games, etc), music/video/other forms of passive entertainment, Legos, collectible items associated with an adult hobby like jerseys, baseball cards, etc. You can get fairly close to that line without actually crossing it (though obviously YMMV), but if you're actually collecting childrens' toys as a hobby you are well past it by anyone's metric.

Hasbro is still going on the assumption that the only audience out there is what their original target audience was... young girls. They also run on the assumption that the only people who would be buying the DVDs are the parents of these kids, and the parents don't want to spend more than 10 bucks on a 5 episode DVD to pop in and play for the kid ad nauseum.

Hasbro is coming around to embracing their older audience, but hasn't gotten there completely.

/Hell, Shout Factory has the DVD license for the show. If Hasbro is so hesitant about putting out a wide release full season because of sales, release it through the Shout Select program, which is limited print run, internet exclusive DVDs and see how that works out.

I hope they're saving for therapy for him. I have a feeling he's going to need it in the future.

/I bet they have some seriously farked up roleplay in the bedroom...

Meh, the kid will grow up fine. People always say shiat like that but children of fans turn out as normal as any other child.

That was the pony collection I wanted to have as a kid... look at all those G1s. I would have killed for one of those plushies, too.

The new ones look like crap. (yes, I said it. Ponies don't look like those... THINGS wtf)


They look like ponies to me. Unless you're one of those GEEWUN! nitpickers who look for all of the pointless differences in things to complain about.

sp86: FirstNationalBastard: Shaggy_C: I don't care what decade you're talking about. "My Little Pony" is a show for children. If you're an adult and watch it, you've got problems. If this were a decade ago you freaks would have been watching Teletubbies or Blues Clues or some similar shiat. What's with some men's obsession with acting like toddlers their whole lives?

What's with some men's obsessions with having to act like a manly man all their lives?

Your standards of manliness are arbitrary, and don't make you any better or manly than someone who watches My Little Pony. In fact, it just makes you kind of sad that you feel you have to live up to unrealistic "manly" standards the media sold everyone 60 years ago to sell cigarettes and movies.

Your strawman is showing.


How is he the one making a strawman? Pointless arbitrary "manliness" is pointless and arbitrary. The ones who care most about their "man-card" are the ones who are most insecure about their "manliness".

TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: /finds it amusing that there are Japanese fans of MLP who insist on watching it subtitled


They also fandubbed it. It's supposedly pretty good. Since I speak no moonlanguage, I can't confirm.

But if you've ever been curious of what a whiny prissy pony sounds like in Japanese, well, here ya go.

Tara owns her roles like a boss. And she's hot. And likes to play up for her fans. Can't fault that at all.

My toddler used to watch a lot of Blues Clues.

It's actually a pretty good show, (Steve version, Joe seems uncomfortable ) usually a nice little tidbit of goofiness tossed in for the adults that have to see it over and over and over and over.

Anyway, it beats the hell out of Squidbillies.


I always wondered how Mr. Salt and Mrs. Pepper could have a Paprika child. Was Mrs. Pepper farking around on Mr. Salt?

I haven't followed the bronie fad, but I do remember the MLP fad from the 80's I seem to remember their fans being preteen girls and overweight, never married older ladies.

FirstNationalBastard: 80s cartoons sucked. The animation was mostly horrible, and most of them were 30-minute commercials for toys or cereal.

Now, the early-90s... that's when cartoons were great.


Wait, 90's cartoons didn't try to sell things?

Not a fangirl, but I hate the animation of the new My Little Pony and Pound Puppies. They just look too weird. Cartoons were at their peak in 80s, why not just re-air them?
