Everypony knows that. If you actually watched the show with an open mind, you would be able to see that it's actually good. The reason this thread exists is to keep all the pony threads strictly to 1, and to keep out haters.

Since monday MLP airs on Nick jr here in germanyland.
At 10:30 AM.
Good thing I didn't have much school today, so I was on time to watch it for the first time.
The voices are alright, could be better, though I'm positively surprised by Fluttershy's. And Spike's VA is the same we got for Timmy Turner over here, so that's cool. Some jokes have been lost because of the translation and Applejack lost her accent. I like that they kept the english names though.


In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

Really? Then why keep doing this whole "brony" business. Do you have such a strong urge to "belong" in some kind of group?

Who says I haven't?

The reason this thread exists is to keep all the pony threads strictly to 1, and to keep out haters.

I aint a hater yo'. I don't give a shit.
I'm just checking in on you guys to see why you're taking things so far.

Any of you guys frequent ponychan by any chance?

Except they failed miserably.

Exactly. That is why I'm so confused by people who get into this. I'm not saying it's a bad thing.
A fad is a fad.

It's just confusing that people picked it up because of such a silly thing. It's like it's not about the show, but about the whole image.

How involved can one be in a show? I adore adventure time, but I don't see any clubs for that out there or whatever.

A reminder to people in this thread. Please do not respond to trolls. They are just flame baiting you and it will result in them talking in a circle of insults.

Yeah I will admit that it is strange that many people picked up on the show because of its fad status. I will admit that is how I came across the show and I love the show for the show, not for its fad status. There are those who do love it because it is a fad, a group of people they can rally with and be friends with.

Yes I have made some new friends due to this show and have talked about this show with them. However the subject does change over to other animated shows. Most people who watch the show tend to be fans of animation and they're great people. Is it the best animated show of all time. No, but given what the creators had to work with they actually made a legitimate show out of this instead of just playing the corporate toy card.

How involved can one be in a show? I adore adventure time, but I don't see any clubs for that out there or whatever.

True, but you could go and create one.

I don't watch the show because it's a fad, I watch the show because I like it.

Exactly. Adventure time is quite popular. I'm sure you could find a few that would join that kinda club or something. Personally, i don't really like it that much though...

I'm sorry but if it wasn't for looney toons show, batman, and young justice Cartoon network would have know place in my heart. All these popular shows are just to random or at least CN advertises them as if they're shit. Of course I'm 19 so that could also be a problem.

Guys. This might be a waste post, and I am not trying to backseat mod. However, this is becoming a little bit annoying.

I like the show, I really do. Everyday I would check out knowyourmeme to see if there are any clever or funny pictures of the ponies. The season 2 opener was very good and cannot wait to see the next one on Saturday.

But the moment I see another pony thread on newgrounds, I seriously want to face palm and ask myself "Why...?" What is the point on making a wasteful thread when there is something quite organized like this one to post? Nothing is usually unique about that special "OMG DIS SHOW IZ BOSS" type of thing that can be kept on this thread.

Now I understand that this is most likely not your fault, and I appreciate you guys keeping the topic in one thread. Others who hate the show (for those who are reading it), why can't you just simply accept the fact that men like this show (or at least ask why we do in this thread)? Wasting a thread on a question is both pointless, and annoying in my opinion.

Now once again I am not trying to backseat mod, and if a mod sees that I am, then by all means remove this post. I am just frustrated that this BBS is slowly becoming Equestria Daily. Besides, this is not the greatest show on Earth as I still enjoy others on TV or YouTube. Please think before you make a secondary pony thread on newgrounds.

Thank you

Then, I stopped reading. And we only have one thread so calm down.

Well thanks for taking the time to post.

Noted.

I like the show, I really do. Everyday I would check out knowyourmeme....

Sorry, but you lost me at KYM. No offense to you, but I hate that site.

But the moment I see another pony thread on newgrounds, I seriously want to face palm and ask myself "Why...?"

Your reaction is akin to my own. We only need one thread.

What is the point on making a wasteful thread when there is something quite organized like this one to post?

Some people want to bitch about the show's popularity it seems.

Nothing is usually unique about that special "OMG DIS SHOW IZ BOSS" type of thing that can be kept on this thread.

We haven't that sort of thread in while. As said earlier, the majority of MLP-related threads on Newgrounds are being created by people who don't like the show, which ironically is what the majority of people are complaining about (MLP-related threads).

Now I understand that this is most likely not your fault, and I appreciate you guys keeping the topic in one thread. Others who hate the show (for those who are reading it), why can't you just simply accept the fact that men like this show (or at least ask why we do in this thread)?

Wonderful, you've acknowledged that My Little Pony isn't the greatest thing on earth: Now sit back down with the rest of us.

Thank you

Thanks for the fish.

Why do people bitch?

This I would like to know. I know of a few shows I don't like either but I'm not going to go post in that thread saying I don't like the show either out of politeness. Would be nice if we got the same thing too. I know people don't like the show while others do. On top top of that we stick to one thread. Any new threads spawning about the show or fans tends to be from people who don't like the show.

let's just end the off topic bullshit, it's just getting annoying to see that stuff

On subject, nice to see Fluttershy has earned a new nickname. There was Flutterrage, and now there is Flutterbitch. Interesting. Also hilariously sad how Applejack can't lie very well.

Has it ever accord to anyone that this shows critical reception will possibly give other station the wrong idea causing our tv's to be shit-stormed by an influx animated female targeted remakes.

Care bears, barbie, BRATZ all remade.

I sense even MORE depressing times for new cartoons of 2012.

BRATZ? Why does that sound so familiar... ah. Well thanks for reminding me of that garbage. We're nothing like them though, right? RIGHT

Cartoons have been depressing since Foster's was cancelled. MLP is just a light paving the way towards better shows, hopefully, some TV executives out there can realize what people want to watch and give us something well made, and original. I highly doubt it though, realizing how stupid most of these executives are.

Haven't you noticed how long we've gone without posting any pony pictures? I think this might be a record.

Well, at least we have Discord Part 2 to hold us over right?

Also, am I the only that noticed how slow this thread has been recently? Maybe that's because Rag and a bunch of other people are banned at the moment. Hopefully it will speed up soon though.

Fan fictions, fan made songs, whatever floats your boats.

I really don't mind a slow thread. Allows more time to read and such and catch up on what is going on in the thread.

Care Bears' demographic was targeted towards both boys and girls to teach them how to care and it was meant for little kids between the ages of 1-5. I know I remember watching it when growing up.

Barbie and BRATZ however are different from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, but I see where you're going though. Friendship is Magic actually takes what it has to work with and makes something of it and doesn't really play towards any demographic really, it's mainly for girls I'll admit, but when I watch it I find it funny and enjoyable.

Barbie has always been sexist towards girls and BRATZ just sets that generic friendship means everything with very bland and dry characters with little to no substance in story. Both of those only intention was to sell more toys, nothing more.

Friendship is Magic wants you to buy My Little Pony toys of course, but they also give you a well written show with memorable characters and stories.

Same really, just a shame it airs on such a fucked up time over here.
In other news, I checked out a couple stores today to see if they had glorious ponies. Blindbags really. Using this handy guide I got my hands on Rarity.

Wish they had blind bags over here in America as well. Some of those look pretty nice, the 24th one looks great along with number four looking a bit like Ditzy Doo without messed up eyes.
