I think the reasoning behind that is primarily the fact that Season 3 is going to be shorter than the rest. I view it in a more positive fashion; if they are making it shorter, that probably means the episodes are longer, and better.

Don't pity them, celebrate them! Earth ponies are the most important non-alicorn ponies because they're the most essential type that contributes to the collective survival of ponykind. I've presented this point several times on NG chat but I'll go on record on this thread saying that earth ponies are definitely valuable, if not THE most. As a whole, they're the hardiest and hardest working there is. Big Macintosh is an excellent example of earthpony strength and resilience. Hoity Toity, Photo Finish, and Octavia are only a few examples of their potential for art, intelligence, and prestige.

Magic manifests itself in each of the three dominant ponytypes. Of course, magic is the specialty of alicorns and unicorns through the use of their horns which make magical energy malleable. The pegasi's ability to walk on clouds and manipulate weather is an innate magical attribute of their kind (as well as for alicorns). As with earth ponies their ability to work with the earth, even something as simple as gardening, is their magical ability.

I have also pointed out that there has been no canonical instances where any alicorn has demonstrated earthpony-like abilities to tend to plant life and all things terrestrial. If I remember correctly, there have neither been any instances where magic was successfully used for agricultural development (Twilight's spell to harvest the apples at the end of Applebuck Season does not count because it's merely a physical manipulation spell). If true, that means the powers that earth ponies possesses are exclusive only to them, not even the mighty alicorns would be able to accomplish what earth ponies do on a regular basis. And since non-alicorn ponies require sustenance to live, and because they're vegetarians by nature, earth ponies are bluntly responsible for the survival of the entirety of ponykind. This importance is also unique to earth ponies; the unicorns are not essential to the collective survival because their original role of controlling the celestial bodies have been obviated by Celestia and Luna's complete jurisdiction over the sun and moon, respectively. The pegasi, while playing a larger role in sustaining the pony population, could still technically be replaced by the Princesses as well, although this would keep them very busy and clear skies and stable weather would be somewhat of a rarity. However if earth ponies were to all just disappear, every single unicorn and pegasus would eventually starve as food supplies would dwindle without them. It is no exaggeration when I say that earth ponies make equine civilization possible.

The innate gift that the earth ponies possess is subtle, but by no means absent.

Have you been writing that since I posted this?

So you're saying that if I put a fern in front of Twilight and told her that her life depended on its wellbeing, it would die no matter how much TLC she gave it? Also, I think I've seen several plants in Twilight and Fluttershy's house. And finally, I know that I would prefer wings over plants.

Another thing: how come you never see cross-type (say, Earth pony and unicorn) couples? is it, like, ponified gay marriage?

As unlikely as that situation sounds, I'd say "Pretty much." Twilight might be able to force it to live for a time by some unholy magic mumbo jumbo, but plantlife ultimately is beyond the domain of her expertise. Then again, it's not like Twilight never screwed up a simple task before, with or without magic. Remember Winter Wrap up?

Also Fluttershy hired an earth pony to take care of her plants, as seen in Putting Your Hoof Down. Though the old stallion does seem to overdo it. I assume Twi does the same with her plants.

Another thing: how come you never see cross-type (say, Earth pony and unicorn) couples? is it, like, ponified gay marriage?

Though never explicitly seen, except maybe implied in Hearts and Hooves Day, cross-type couples has been confirmed in Season 2 thanks to Mr. Cake's explanation. I doubt there's any taboo to it either.
I dare to say Fluttershy is the closest thing in the show to an earthpony-pegasus hybrid. Think about it, she lives on the ground, surrounds herself in terrestrial nature and landbased animals, and is generally a weak flyer yet still has all the innate pegasine abilities.

I doubt it. Why go two seasons with normal airing time then suddenly change over to making each episode an hour? It wouldn't make sense to do so.

I agree. Not to mention they're meant to be morning cartoons for children, and those are usually not an hour long.

There is the possibility that they are phasing out the older version of the show and attuning it to their more important, and profitable audience. I doubt that they would do such a thing and honestly if they did it would take away some of the fun from the show.

I don't know, I would honestly prefer they made the episodes longer if they are going to chop the seasons in half. If they are making them shorter with the same time frame, it may mean that they are phasing out the show all together.

Maybe the contract with the show being only on the HUB ends with the third season, so they wanted said contract to end as soon as possible so it could be shown on other channels and reach a bigger audience?
Or maybe the one thing we've been waiting for is finally happening!

We all learn something new everyday. On the subject of the HUB, wasn't there a show that comes on later in the day by R.L. Stine who did the Goosebumps series?

On the subject of ponies, thinking of possibly creating a collage poster with some pony stuff on it and whatnot. Thoughts?

In that case, I say something involving Fluttershy and Luna, because it's Fluttershy and Luna. :3

Maybe do something involving newgrounds? like tankponies, or something?

Hey bronies, I come in peace! I was just wondering a few things:

1. What makes MLP:FIP so appealing?

2. What is your favourite thing about it? (animation, story lines, characters, etc)

3. Why do you think people above the original targeted age group latched onto the bandwagon?

4. Can you help explain why there is so much hate towards bronies?

Hello there. Welcome to our little group.

1. What makes MLP:FIP so appealing?

Well, it appeals for different reasons, and I am sure each person has a different reason for liking the show. Personally I find the show enjoyable simply for its light humor, wonderful animation, and character development as the series progresses. While there are still elements that make it girly, as it was not really intended for us, it manages to mix in a little spice that would entertain the bronies as well.

2. What is your favourite thing about it? (animation, story lines, characters, etc)

My personal favorite part of the series would have to be the characters. While each character seems to represent a rather stale stereotype, they do so in a fashion that makes them likable and funny at times. Each character has their own personality quirks, bad time and good times, and ups and downs. It is this humanizing of each of the characters that makes them so familiar and lovable.

3. Why do you think people above the original targeted age group latched onto the bandwagon?

I believe that the older teenagers started latching onto the show originally as a joke, as is obvious. Through time, and duration watching they show they began to appreciate the finer points of it, noticing the quirky moments, silly personalities, and interesting cliff hanger (sometimes literally) moments. It is like going on a little adventure, I suppose. It renews your sense of childhood.

4. Can you help explain why there is so much hate towards bronies?

The internet is a living hate machine. They see one particular group of people as a close-minded definition of abnormal, and point them out with hate and ridicule so they feel they will fit in with their peers. I understand that some people are incapable of liking the show, but really there isn't a way to hate it.

Just curious, thanks.

Not at all boy!

I don't know what makes it appealing to others, but I can tell you why it appeals to me. I have grown up liking animation for as long as I can remember. I was one of the weird kids who would read the opening credits to Looney Tunes show. So I have always had a strong appreciation for animation and I still do.

2. What is your favourite thing about it? (animation, story lines, characters, etc)

When I heard about the show I passed it by, not because it was a girly show I watched different girly shows all the time, mainly because I grew up with a sister. I remember watching The Powerpuff Girls and enjoying it due to its story, animation, and characters. There is a lot I love about this show, but what I like most is the dedication to it. The animators and writers working on this could have just made something forgettable to sell toys with like the past incarnations of My Little Pony have done, but they decided to actually make something.

Each character in the show does have their stereotypes to them, but at the same time they also have personalities to go with them that change as they change. There is character development here and it is really well done. The stories are your fair share of morals, it is a moral show much like Fat Albert, Captain Planet, and others. However instead of coming off in a corny way it plays the route of a show like Hey Arnold. You can guess what the moral is pretty easily, but the journey to that moral is where the fun comes in.

3. Why do you think people above the original targeted age group latched onto the bandwagon?

I wouldn't call it a bandwagon. I have seen bandwagons, where people will just hop in and go. It is not a bandwagon in any sort of imagination. I guess there is some connection with what kids grew up with in the 80's and 90's cartoons. There is a good bit of inspiration from Looney Tunes, especially in Pinkie Pie. They used the wabbit season - duck season joke with her already, however her skip hop is taken directly from Pepe LePew. It's like a return to form in a new skin which does come off very creatively.

4. Can you help explain why there is so much hate towards bronies?

There is a bandwagon in that aspect of haters. People who just blindly hate something without watching it. However this hatred isn't towards the show, but towards the fans... in which case a lot of fans don't really help out in this. To be honest I am a bit disappointed in a lot of the fans of this show because they tend not to have any self-control or are really using the show as a tool to troll others which isn't right. However ones who blindly hate without giving the show a chance, that shows ignorance and it is true no matter what show it is.

Some people don't like the show because it is annoying, which I don't see how it is annoying, I can sympathize. A lot of people found Steve Urkel annoying and some people even found Doug Funnie to be annoying as well. However they don't hate the fans of the show, it's a more power to you thing.

1. What makes MLP:FIP so appealing?

Trixie loves all her little admirers, how they all group up to watch her awe inspiring feats of magic! Ah, yes. Trixie finds her show very appealing.

2. What is your favourite thing about it? (animation, story lines, characters, etc)

The Great And Powerful Trixie! Of course, she also enjoys besting Twilight Sparkle.

3. Why do you think people above the original targeted age group latched onto the bandwagon?

Trixie's show is for ponies of all ages, be they foals or grown stallions. All worship and adore Trixie's power!

4. Can you help explain why there is so much hate towards bronies?

Many critics attempt to spread bad word about Trixie and her fanbase, of course such words are outrageous and wrong! They simply cannot accept the fact they are inferior to the most powerful unicorn in all of Equestria!

Just curious, thanks.

Curiosity is good, Trixie loves to let it grow as she performs her remarkable tricks!
