Well, I felt there is a difference between sending free episodes or making fanbased parodies and collecting stuff to put on a disk and winning profits through it.

In retrospect, I apologise for focusing this mainly on MLP. I am also quite fond of Little Kuribohs work on YugiOh Abridged and the guys from team 4star, creating DBZ abridged. They also sell T-shirts and stuff portraying characters from the show. So I wonder how far fanbased merchandising stands from infringing copyrights. As I said, there is a difference between making profit based on fanmaterial of a show and making fanart/fiction/... for non-profit uses.

This encompasses more then MLP alone.

I just don't see the appeal of this show. Yes, the show is very exploitable and has endless potential for fanart, fanfiction, and image macros. But besides the meme part of it, what sets this apart from any other cartoon like it? It's basically just Foster's with a painful moral at the end of each episode.

Sorry, for bringing it up so much. That's why I intended to separate the show from the others at first. but yeah, the cartoon club lay dead for quite some time, so I didn't know it would annoy people.

As to why it stands out from the others? In my case, a major factor is the availability. For other shows, I either have to buy DVD's to follow the show through, or hope I can find them free online. Sadly, they get pulled off of the internet most of the time. I could watch them on TV, which would be the best option. But Channels are real assholes at that.
1. TV Channels where I live, have decided that it's great to dub shows. well, wh wah i hate dubbed shows because I'm such a hipster! No, i know some good dubs, but lately it seems as if they decided that with progressing time, they have to spend less money on good voice actors and the quality of the dubs have become painful.
2. The dick move of TV channels to rerun the same episodes over and over again. Even worse so, they totally abandon chronology. This is the case with Cartoon channels, who send cartoons day in day out, but fail to get the rights to air more than one cartoon.
3. Of course, TV has a schedule, and sadly this schedue doesn't matches mine. There's so many options to tape things, but I only tape what I'm sure I like.

An example: Invader Zim. I've watched a few episodes online and I like the show so very much. However, they showed it on TV, dubbed poorly and that was a big turnoff, so I didn't bother taping them. If i were to find a source, then I would probably start watching them one after the other.

And if you watch them a lot, you like them more and more and such.

Wikipedia has its own article now for MLP's fanbase. I would imagine any fanmaterial being sold would do nothing but promote the franchise, like the cartoon.

Sorry, for bringing it up so much. That's why I intended to separate the show from the others at first. but yeah, the cartoon club lay dead for quite some time, so I didn't know it would annoy people.

There's nothing wrong with what you did. You're talking about a cartoon pretty much everybody is watching right now.

I understand. I had to buy Batman: TAS and Superman: TAS's DVDs because nobody would upload them online (Except on /co/, but I'm banned) and I'm not even sure if those versions are the censored Toon Disney versions or not.

In other news, there's an official song out called Equestria Girls sung by Pinkie Pie which everyone is making remixes of right now. A bigger deal is the extended mix. Yes, she just said "bronies". Oh my god.

Oh, that's not the 'worst' of it. At the end of the song 'Spike' mentions DJ Pon-3.
Bronies are a bit of in between. Not all that coincidental link to 'bronies' of course. But in a song where 'bros' are to be mentioned, bronies should follow naturally. But DJ Pon-3 is the meme-based name of the DJ pony briefly appearing in the episode 'Suited for success', officially named Vinyl Scratch. That reference wasn't even subtle.

Seems like the show is riding the meme wave big. On the positive side, perhaps next season will feature a Doctor Whoof episode. Must be a power rush for some meme bronies to see that the meme status affects the show (there's already been Derpy). Meh, got to wait till the rush in their heads get so high, the contant of the show really goes through the toilet next season. For now, I'm willing to take it with a moderate spoon of amusement.

As far as the song itself is concerned, I found it a bit out of character for Pinkie. It's clearly aimed at an older audience (the fact that it is a parody of an older song is obvious). As a promo, this might be acceptable. i just hope they don't take it with them to the second season and everypony starts singing rap and pop songs and such. The show itself requires song of the musical type.

So any impressions of the Amazing World Of Gumball? So far it seems only one of the 2 stories of each episode is good. And when this show is good, it's fucking fantastic and hilarious and beautiful.

I have heard of it, but they don't air it here. It seemed bad, I think.

On a side note, I've spawned quite some ideas on creating a game based on MLP in my blog. Tokk way too much time to write down. But I am satisfied on its result for now.

I just watched a part of a Dutch dubbed MLP episode. My God, if I casually watched that on TV I would be a pony hater.
Now the voice actresses were experienced in other dubs, but hannah montana? that's like one of the worst dubs in the history. Also, spike is female.

It really isn't. It's quite good actually. The pacing is perfect, and the visuals are gorgeous. And the writing is surprisingly pretty funny.

Wow, I barely ever come to C&C and I just discovered this thread, but I talk about cartoons on General all the time. Adventure Time is probably my favorite show that's currently on TV, animated or otherwise.

I also recently started watching Avatar: The Last Airbender (since the A.V. Club is doing recaps this summer), so I was wondering what you guys think of that show (without spoilers, preferably).

I love that show. People always heap all the praise on Ren & Stimpy and forget about Rocko, when I'd argue that it was a much better show, and maybe just as influential (Spongebob creator Stephen Hillenburg worked on the show, as did the creators of Phineas and Ferb). Plus it easily had the ballsiest attempts at getting shit past the censors of any kids' show ever (they hung out at a place called Chokey Chicken, for God's sake).

The amount of MLP fanart is unbelievable. I actually think it's past the amount of Sonic fanart at this point. Well, MAYBE not that far, but it's getting close. Damn close.

But the following this show has on the Internet is so overwhelming, I'm thinking during Season 2 the series will completely sell out with meme-related jokes. We've already had derpy, bronies, and DJ PON-E. But that was all fanservice. It might, eventually, have so much fanservice it'll embarrass itself. Especially since Lauren is stepping down.

Malachy didn't give us a brony herd and said that it belongs in Cartoon club. So pretty friggin yes.

Also, I discovered ponychan and that opened a bronyworld for me. essentially, after getting kicked out of 4chan once too many, they made their own image board. sure, people now go OMGWTFBBQ, but it's not that bad. plenty of pony images and shit, but fruitful discussions on the show, nice artwork and they put links to download the actual episodes.

Gots myself a map of ponythemed meme macros. :3

But browsing that community, bronies are far more than just meme-base. people really, really love the show. Just read this article.

There's a possibility that before season 2 the interest dies down, but there's plenty of people hoping that the show sticks around for a few more seasons. And fan-art is in steady incline.

I'm game.

A subject: apparently a radioshow came down hard on the brony community, making claims on air about bronies being paedophiles. As a result, brony community spammed their facebook page with ponies.

Now I've been thinking about the issue. On one hand, it's just a radio show and we shouldn't take these words too serious. On the other hand, when the public indulges itself on the theory that bronies are paedophiles, that can seriously threaten the show. Made by a company that sells toys to kids with concerned parents, they might feel it unfit to continue the series if people think they outsource to perverts.

On a side note, digging into the Brony community, Lauren Faust and her crew dug up a grand jewel like they could rival to rarity.

Skip to about a minute, past all the Babyman stuff. (Although Babyman shows what they're classifying fans with) Yet again, people have absolutely no idea what they're talking about. But the worst part is this is going to fuel the stupid hate for bronies. (I'm not a brony, but this is just sick)

I wonder if people have actually quit their work to become a full time brony. If so, i can agree with him, that's pretty sick. Being a brony (heh, I love to lable it like that, but that on itself is a bit silly), is just something you do on your own time. that's what it is. It's not that different from playing video games after work, or whatever. Sure, there's become a huge internet culture about it, but i doubt anyone would reason that being a brony is an excuse to quit work.

Seriously, brony herd got removed under the idea that discussing the show was fit for Cartoon club. So it would be unfair to now say "Oh, by that I meant buck off!"
Of course, though some pictures have been posted, when discussing the show, discuss the show+related and don't just post ponies. This being said...

And now for something completely different.

Batman: Brave and the Bold is not only one of the greatest DC animated shows ever, it's possibly one of the greatest cartoons of our time. It's a MASSIVE throwback to Golden and Silver Age comics, as well as Superfriends. It's cheesy to the point where it's almost like a parody, and it uses cutaway humor that actually WORKS. Aquaman in particular is made of win.

MEANWHILE, AT THE LEGION OF DOOM.
