BronyMedic: LoneWolf343: That was a furious debacle, wasn't it? Personally, I did find the voice to be a little offensive, but not deserving of the reaction it got, and it made me wonder where everyone one was when the show implied that the Native American Wars could have been solved by the Native Americans just accepting the white people's ways and presence.

One Word: Yamino.

Yamino and her SIster Claire webcomic fanbase were responsible for the majority of the outrage, and the letter-bombing campaign that forced Hasbro to push Derpy out of the cartoons and into more and more obscurity.

This, by the way, is Yamino.

Mid_mo_mad_man: Coco LaFemme: Speaking of discovering the beaver, maybe if you spent less time chastising people on the Internet for liking a TV show that you don't, and more time actively getting laid, you'd have a better disposition. You always hear men tell women who are really uptight and coontish that they need a good dicking.....well, maybe you need a good vagina'ing.

Please I get all pu&@y I need. If not from my gf then I use your sister. Btw why do you think she walks bowlegged ?


There aren't enough words in the English language to describe accurately, the hilarity of that statement. That was just below a "yo mama" joke on the scale of humor. In any event, my sister is a teacher, and I doubt very seriously she'd fark a guy who can't spell "pussy" without an ampersand and an "at" sign. However, what if I didn't have a sister? Or my mom was deceased? Since both my grandmothers are also dead, what female relative of mine would you have used in your not-at-all-witty bon mot?

She's "transitioning", but her plumbing is still male. Still, I refuse to insult transgendered people by calling them a gender pronoun that doesn't describe them.

Yamino's a biatch, and that was before the whole "Sister Claire White Knights the Disabled" debacle with Derpy and Friendship is Magic. It's pretty common knowledge in con circles that she's incredibly rude to her fans and the public alike, and that she's got a "I'm better than you because I'm more in tune with Social Justice" attitude when it comes to picking causes to white knight. She tends to get her Sister Claire fanbase whipped up about whatever social justice cause she wants to white knight at the time, and apparently the badly acted voice caused her to get up in arms.

She's the kind of person you'd love to punch in the face just for being a dick.

Well, similarly, I don't want to say someone is transsexual just because they look in-between sexes, partly because I have a very good transsexual friend and you really can't tell it from looking at him (previously her.)

Awww... The CMC are adorable, but their episodes can be groaners, that's fer sure.


Not a fan of the CMC episodes. If there were some indication that it was a storyline that was going somewhere, maybe I'd have a little patience for it.

Of course my real pet peeve is the use of "pony" instead of "body" (as in "everypony" or "anypony"). Yeah, we get it, you're ponies. Ha.

Afraid not, that was a purple pony with a two-tone mane and perfectly straight eyes. Definitely wasn't Derpy.

LoneWolf343: Dinobot: LoneWolf343: Oh, wait, I found...and so far, it is completely wrong. Cry away, then.

I aint crying -- but considering what happened the first time Derpy opened her mouth, I pretty much doubted she was gonna get an episode.

Which is why I expressed incredulity at your claims of her getting an episode for herself.

That was a furious debacle, wasn't it? Personally, I did find the voice to be a little offensive, but not deserving of the reaction it got, and it made me wonder where everyone one was when the show implied that the Native American Wars could have been solved by the Native Americans just accepting the white people's ways and presence.


The problem was that no one bothered to tell Tabitha the gender of the pony she was supposed to be voicing, so she went with a slightly boyish voice, since according to her, the character (as described by the script) reminded her of a boy in her neighborhood who, while well-meaning, is sort of a klutz and tends to make things worse.

Later on, she picked up on Derpy being a girl, but it was too late by then.

I was really bugged with that episode how Twilight was constantly going on about how impossible it would be to figure out which one was the real Pinkie, and all the while the real Pinkie was the one who wasn't mindlessly pursuing fun. Spike even pointed out how she was different from the others, and Twi just brushed it off and instead came up with the unnecessary paint staring contest.
I've really grown to believe that Twilight actually doesn't like Pinkie all that much, or at least thinks very little of her.

Or from Swarm of the Century, or Griffon the Brushoff.

But to be fair, she did at least try to respect the Pinkie Pie Promise(tm), so I guess there's that.


And to save the trouble of over posting, I still hold some small hope that Derpy will be returned somehow, given that they did make an official Convention variant figure of her.
Course, that could have just been Hasbro getting the last buck out of us before booting our fandom mascot out the back door.

Shadow Blasko: They should just call her Dee. Could be Ditzy... could be Derpy. Let the fans decide for themselves.


I think that's a solid compromise. I could live with Derpy being nicknamed Dee.

I'd kinda like to see them bring her back into the foreground with more tact used. Say, do an episode where the moral is to not underestimate people with apparent disabilities.
For example, maybe the Cakes have to leave town for some reason, and they hire Dee as an assistant to Pinky while they're gone. You keep the clumsiness, but drop the doofy voice.
"I don't know what when wrong." could still be a catchphrase.
Anyway, the point would be to then have a bunch of set-ups of Pinkie getting her to help with making cakes and candies and ultimately klutzing it up until Pinkie starts over-compensating
and eventually just tells Dee to stand back, something that would bring Pinkie to realize how she's badly acting to her because it's so out of Pinkie's regular character, and then it would
end with some bit where she goes to apologize and discovers that Dee went ahead and made a batch of muffins that turned out better than perfect, and it all ends up with a Dear Princess Celestia
moment (maybe even cap it off with Celestia getting two letters, the second being Dee's, which is covered in ink spills and smudges).

A man can dream...

The whole fourth wall breaking business makes a lot more sense now. As well as why Celestia's only a princess.

It's because Pinkie Pie has been God Almighty all along.

Finally watched the episode.

Pretty boilerplate as far as your usual "serious message"-type kid's shows episodes go. Like many, I don't really care for the CMC-centric episodes, but this one was tolerable thanks to a catchy tune (I'm waiting on the Eurobeat remix).

As far as the story goes, it was pretty obvious what was going on as soon as Babs kept hiding herself. The A-Team montage was enjoyable, but not much else in the episode stood out besides the song, which is the best one of this season so far, but still nothing better than previous ones.

Overall, a better-than-average CMC episode, which makes it a strictly average episode of the series.

/next episode should be amazing, though
//great and powerful shenanigans ahead

But most people with adult sensibilities don't find anything funny about animated pictures with ponies.

Admittedly I'm fascinated by the way these folk double down on the stupid and insist they love a cartoon so much that is targeted for girls under 10, but it's clear this is merely a new way to be edgy. Their reaction to being attacked is like that of a rebellious goth teenager that knows they're a fraud yet insists dressing up in makeup and unreasonable clothing is "just them". From there they can only become more entrenched in the lie or admit they are are fools.
