About

Redeye of Ponygoons wrote:In 2008 a woman who had been trying for years to break through into a strongly male-dominated field finally got a break. She was placed in charge of the latest iteration of one of the longest-running and most heavily merchandised franchises in the industry, which no man on earth would have ever expected to change in any way, except maybe for the worse.

That woman was Lauren Faust, probably best known for her work on the Powerpuff Girls and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends. And the new show she would produce would eventually be named My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

And through satanic pact or voodoo ritual, it would quickly take the Internet by storm.

Lauren Faust wrote:I was extremely skeptical at first about taking the job. Shows based on girls' toys always left a bad taste in my mouth, even when I was a child. They did not reflect the way I played with my toys. I assigned my ponies and my Strawberry Shortcake dolls distinctive personalities and sent them on epic adventures to save the world. On TV, though, I couldn't tell one girl character from another and they just had endless tea parties, giggled over nothing and defeated villains by either sharing with them or crying–which miraculously inspired the villain to turn nice. Even to my 7-year-old self, these shows made no sense and couldn't keep my interest. No wonder the boys at school laughed at my Rainbow Unicorn Trapper Keeper.

From what I've seen since I've grown up, little has changed. To look at the quality of most girls' cartoons, it would seem that not one artist really cared about them. Not one designer, not one background painter, not one animator. Some of the more well-meaning, more expensive animated productions for girl audiences may look better, but the female characters have been so homogenized with old-fashioned “niceness” that they have no flaws and are unrelatable. They are so pretty, polite and perfect; there is no legitimate conflict and nothing exciting ever happens. In short, animated shows for little girls come across as boring. Stupid. Lame.

This perception, more than anything, is what I am trying to change with My Little Pony.

Basically, MLP is great because of the writing and characterization, overall moral outlook, and decent flash animation thanks to a crew of veterans founded by Faust herself. Don't believe me that MLP is good? Watch this.

Noble, i am PRETTY sure that, when a comment was made including the ponies you speak about, it was posted as SATIRE.

This means we don't really like ponies and what beeare said about including them was meant to be taken the same way you would take it if someone said "i'm going to spit in your soda".

fuck you mir@k i love ponies

oh my GOD I CAN'T STOP HUMMING THE WINTER WRAP UP SONG

*prances about with Noble Atomic giggling like a school girl*

oh man when Pinkie Pie starting one-pony banding against the little reproduce by barfing up a child Navi fairy things

I was like "hell yes" up in this bitch

Pinkie Pie 2012

but Rarity sucks what a harlot. Applejack is a little grating too I would like her better without the FUCKING HAT.

Rainbow Dash is clearly gay. Twilight Sparkle has Assburgers. Fluttershy is one-trick (pony) hohohoho.

Pinkie Pie owns. Owns.

and another thing: The Unicorn Harmony Song Thing Is A Great Song That Should Be The Theme Instead Of The Boring Trash Theme They Have Now. ...or the winter wrap up song.

Whatevz. I bet there's others around Snafu that have taken interest in the series. IMO It's almost like watching Foster's again.

I've seen some fragments of it, (more or less inadvertantly) but tuning into Hub a bit too early (I'm trying to fill in all of the Atomic Betty and Fraggle rock episods I missed as a kid, and keep forgetting that the latter isn't shown on Mon. and Fri. in it's slot. I won;t claim I like it, but as least this version isn't so cloyingly sweet it makes me want to rub my skin off with a microplane and then take a bath in salted vinegar (like the orginal did).

Based on what little I have seen, One thing I like about this version is that unlike the original (as far as I know, given the fact that 1. I'm a guy and 2. I have a terrible memory I honestly don't know if this is actually the case) This version admits the fact that there do exist male ponies. Granted they're bit players but at least they are there. I was also amused by thier attempts (in one but I sat through) to try and do something I actually would have thoght impossible, try and make a manticore cute. If one day I see a bit where they try and do a cute cockatrice, I'm going to have a conniption! Or maybe a Bonnacon (actually that woulb probably make for a hilarios plot, the MLP version of "Everyone poops"!)

I get irritated when the solutions to problems are "WE JUST DIDN'T CARE AND SHARE HARD ENOUGH" but most of the time the show avoids this. I always mute or skip the theme song, barf. But Winter Wrap Up? ~oh my god~

btw the "Bronies" group is one of the funniest things I have heard in a while.

the image of beer drinking exclusively rap and country listening popped collar ponies as avatars for real people who like all that stuff and also my little pony just gets me.

In context it makes all the sense required for the context, so yes. o_o what a terribly pretentious thing to wonder.

fast hints:

rarity is a bitch, rainbow dash is so gay, applejack is grating but tolerable and much cuter without her hat, twilight sparkle is a nerd, fluttershy is um cute but boring and PINKIE PIE FUCKING RULES.

also 90% of that magical stupid crap plot in the pilot 2parter? mostly ignored which is good.

also there is an african lady zebra lol

edit: okay okay, i hate rarity much less after seeing the latest episode put up today.

but here is a link to the second half of the best episode, wherein Pinkie Pie fucking cements her position as THE My Little Pwny.
