My Little Pony

This thread is dedicated to discussion regarding one of the best animated series out there, and everything related to it.

So, to begin with, who are everybody's favorite ponies?
For me, it is a tie between Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash.

Fluttershy is now officially my favorite. Also, I feel odd, but I admit I like this.

Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie are best ponies.

My favorite is Fluttershy, although Rainbow Dash is a close second.

I don't know why, but I find this show incredibly addicting. Someone convinced me to see the first two or three episodes a few months back, and I ended up watching the entire season in one sitting. And I still can't get the Winter Wrap-up song out of my head.

My little pony is a show made for little girls to teach them morals because little girls aren't as interested in other cartoons made to teach children morals, but this one has ponies, to give them a reason to like it. For this reason I do not watch My Little Pony and find people who watch it to be silly.

With that said I am quite a silly person XD, my fav pony is Fluttershy :D =3

I really don't even understand this cartoon or why people other than children are interested in it

Because the characters have personalities. Actual, non-cliched personalities, mind you, not one-dimensional cookie-cutter archetypes. It's cute, it's funny, and it's generally awesome.

Also, it's 20% cooler than anything else out there.

really? well that makes it far better than GI-Joe or any of the other 30 minute ads out there. (most of them being from the 80s but whatever) Still kinda afraid to watch it though.

I watched it, but i didn't get enough of a care to watch all of the episodes, after all, I am very adventurous about what other things there are in the interwebs (and of course real life).

Favorite character? It's gotta be between Pinkypie and Fluttershy.

by the way, I know this isn't an actual character from the series, but my favorite is Death Pony. one of the apocalypse ponys. (the ratings would skyrocket if they were put in!)

While browsing pony videos earlier, I came across this petition to release a soundtrack CD of the series. It would be great if you could go and sign it, as I think we can all agree that it would be great to own the songs in physical form.

In other news, two behind the scenes photos of episode 6 of season 2 have been released on the internet:



Speculate!

I tried watching the first episode... Why do people like this so much? Are all of the ponies female? Also, is the purple thing a pony or a dragon?
Edit: Oh, I guess it's a dragon...

The first episodes aren't that good, but the series picked up very fast, you should keep watching it.
There are male ponies, and at least one is included in the first episode (Big Macintosh, Applejack's sister, is introduced to Twilight by Applejack, just like the rest of her family) A good rule of thumb is that the male ponies are usually the ones with the normal colors.
Are you referring to Nightmare moon? She is a pony.

No, I meant the purple and green dragon thing.

have you noticed there aren't any dudes there? every female focused series has at least one guy. I mean even the touhou series has rinnosuke.

also: theres a petition for the soundtrack? man, I wish there were petitions for more awesome soundtracks like custom robo or... I can't think of anything else atm because that was the only thing on my mind.

Here is what Topps thinks about My Little Pony:

Here is what I think about My Little Pony:
Since I'm stuck at home for most of the Summer, I have nothing better to do, and the show is only 22 minutes long, so I've watched 8 and a half episodes (I'm on the Zebra one). I will say it's a very generic girly show made to teach kids morals, but it's better than most. I will watch Spongebob, and MLP is better than that. Anyways, I don't understand why people think the ponies have such interesting personalities, they're the most one dimensional characters I've ever seen. Here's a list:
-Fluttershy: Shy, likes animals
-Rainbow Dash: Show off, thinks she's the best
-Twilight Sparkle: Smart, either always right or learns the moral easily
-Pinky Pie: Annoying, tag along, likes parties
-Rarity (I think that's her name): Vain
Applejack is the only one whose personality isn't obvious. I guess she's stubborn and sometimes bossy. The creators obviously forgot that people have more than one to two character traits each, which makes the show extremely predictable. Applejack is the best pony because of the semi-complex character, and because so far, she is the only one with a family or any sort of job as far as I can tell. I'm somewhat confused on which animals can talk and which ones can't. The bunnies don't talk but understand spoken language, and all of the cows can talk? Can the dog talk? Are there social classes? Are the cows held as slaves? Do the other ponies have families?
