I think that's a reference to something, but I was born after 1995 so it's lost on me.

/ok, fine, I'm much older than that.

The new My Little Pony comic is a little fanficcy, but awesome for the shout--outs. Like this:

That's really all you need to know.

Listen, I'm ok with grown-ass men watching cartoons. I watch that new TMNT cartoon on the Nick and I'm not too ashamed of it. What I don't get is why the hell is there so much fervor over this to the point where there are fark threads and image memes and junk all over the place? The show itself is fine but the level of fanaticism surrounding it is weird even by internet standards.

Not trying to rain on the parade but somebody please explain to me why this is acceptable.

Well, Friendship is Magic has quite a number of things going for it.

1) It's funny.
2) The character designs are a nice balance of cute AND cartoony. Pinkie Pie's hijinx alone are more Looney Tunes than "The Looney Tunes Show". How did THAT happen?!
3) It's funny.
4) The writing is clever and smart, and can communicate to both kids and adults without alienating one group for another. That's very difficult to actually do.
5) It's funny.
6) The voice actors totally OWN their respected roles. A number of them keep a good correspondence going between themselves and the fans via conventions and social media.
7) Did I mention it's funny?

I hope that helped. :-)

I can think of dozens of cartoons that fall into most of those criteria. Spongebob never got fark threads. Powerpuff Girls never spawned thousands of image macros.

Spongebob is actually probably the best example of a cartoon made for kids but that caught on big with adult fans and college kids and when that happened I remember it being a big deal but this Pony stuff seems to have gotten out of control.

I've seen a couple episodes of it and it does seem like a cute kids show but even shows like Adventure Time, which is another tremendously popular cartoon doesn't have the same level of obnoxious fanaticism on the internet than My Little Pony does. Where are the fark threads for Adventure Time?

Thanks to our creepy, annoying video editor at work, I've just found out there's such a thing as a "bronie".

This dude will have earnest, opinionated conversations about who he thinks the best voice actor in the series is.
 
2012-12-08 10:37:02 AM
Basically-without trying to speak for everyone who loves the show-there are a lot of things about this show that remind the people who love it of the shows and movies they used to watch when they were growing up. The producers, writers and animators are probably more 'in tune' with Hasbro's legacy than Hasbro themselves are. This show incorporates so many of the things that were great about Disney movies, Don Bluth films, Nick toons, Warner Brothers etc yet they really put a lot of effort into making it their own thing, and they try their best to stay in tune with their fans without sacrificing the integrity of the show. This IS a kids show, kinda, tho the shows creator-Lauren Faust-meant it to be a show the whole family could watch. Dads, moms, boys AND girls, EVERYone should be able to understand and enjoy the characters and the situations they get themselves into.

Because that's what it's REALLY all about. This show is a very character driven one. They really do their best to make the whole toy selling thing a minor part of it. It's there, it's just part of the scenery, there's no shoving toys down your throat. I liked that and I also respect the fact that Hasbro has been pretty lenient when it comes to protecting their ip. They let the fans have quite a bit of leeway as far as creating their own pony themed art and crafts and music.

It might sound cliche, but the biggest draw to this is the whole 'caring is sharing' part of it. I think a lot of folks who watch this love this so much because the characters in the show care about each other. The cast put their hearts into the show, you can tell they get along in real life, because it really comes through. I think a lot of people feel like I do, and I've talked with enough kids who love this show to feel confident enough to say that the biggest reason people love this show is because friendship IS magic. Whether it's because you had friends already and appreciated what they meant to you or because you made some because of the show, this wonderful thing called the internet has made it so much easier for some of us socially akward types to make friends, we can't help but celebrate it, you know?

ANyways, this went on a lot longer than I meant it to, and i'd like to get back to watching Bodacious Space Pirates-another great series that focuses on character and friendship ^_^. Again, I don't represent everyone, this is just my thoughts on the matter. Maybe someone else has a different perspective. I guess on thing that makes me sad is all the sheer hate for it. I mean, I know some of us fans can be a bit obnoxious about it but for the most part, it's a harmless enough fandom.

See, here's the thing. Has he always been obnoxious? If so, it's not really the shows fault, and define 'creepy'? Is it that all of a sudden he's started to bother you, or have you perhaps not liked him all along and this is just another reason to dislike him?

If you'd rather not hear it, just politely ask him not to directly mention it to you. If he's just having conversations with people and you don't like the subject matter, I don't know what to tell you.

Has anyone ever submitted one?

I mean, I take credit for submitting the first Pony weekly episode headline/thread at the end of last season, just to see if it would get greenlit. It did. And it kept going this season.

If no one tries to get a green, no one gets a green.

It changed my opinion of Scootaloo a bit. I get tired of the CMC about midway through the season, but I actually really like this episode. And yes, many many feels. More feels than I had watching Olivia cry at Peter for like twenty minutes during Fringe last night.

Also any bonus Luna is good Luna.
