  • My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic



    From Wikipedia:

    My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is an animated television series produced by Hasbro Studios in the United States (for scripts) and at DHX Media's studio located in Vancouver (for animation; formerly known as Studio B Productions), which is based on Hasbro, Inc's My Little Pony line of toys and animated works.

    The series is considered to be the fourth generation (G4) of the My Little Pony franchise, following earlier lines and television show tie-ins in the 1980s and 1990s. The series premiered on October 10, 2010, on The Hub, an American pay television channel partly owned by Hasbro. As of February 2013, the show has completed its third season with a fourth season set to air in early 2014, and is broadcasting internationally in dozens of countries in more than twenty languages. In addition to toys and home media releases, Hasbro has licensed clothing, comic books, and video games based on Friendship Is Magic.


    Hasbro selected animator Lauren Faust as the creative director and executive producer for the show. Faust sought to challenge the established nature of the existing My Little Pony line, creating more in-depth characters and adventurous settings, incorporating Hasbro's suggestions for E/I ("educational and informational") content and marketing of the toy line. Faust left the show during the production of the second season, and she is credited as consulting producer. Jayson Thiessen, the show's supervising director, became the showrunner starting with season two.


    The show follows a studious unicorn pony named Twilight Sparkle as her mentor Princess Celestia guides her to learn about friendship in the town of Ponyville. Twilight becomes close friends with five other ponies: Applejack, Rarity, Fluttershy, Rainbow Dash, and Pinkie Pie. Each represents a different face of friendship, and Twilight discovers herself to be a key part of the magical artifacts, the "Elements of Harmony". The ponies share adventures and help out other residents of Ponyville, while working out the troublesome moments in their own friendships.


    The show has been critically praised for its humor and moral outlook. Despite the target demographic of young girls, Friendship Is Magic has, in addition, gained a large following of older viewers, predominately teenagers and adults, largely male, who call themselves "bronies". Reasons for this unintended appreciation include Faust and her team's creative writing and characterization, the expressive Flash-based animation style, themes that older audiences can appreciate, and a reciprocal relationship between Hasbro, the creators, and the fans.

    Elements of the show have become part of the remix culture and have formed the basis for a variety of Internet memes. As a result in part of this unexpected cross-demographic audience interest, the series has become a major commercial success, becoming the most highly rated original production in the Hub's broadcast history.

    Who else is a fan of this show or am I the only one????

        My little pony on a horror forum, among guts and gore and shit? Sounds odd.

          We should totally have an animation section...or at least a thread.


          Bear Jew, as soon as I saw your avatar, I knew you were a Brony. Me personally, I liked the Generation 1 series better.... much more dark for a kids show, and so plenty of boys watched it.


          EDIT: And no, i'm not a Brony.....though as a kid I watched parts of the original Ponies show.

            Well I contribute MPL's popularity to Lauren Faust. From Powerpuff Girls, Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends and My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, she keeps making great cartoons....

                  There's actually a Blu Ray that documents this whole Brony phenomena. Grown men across the globe with a fascination for all things MLP.

                        I love the show and am proud to be a Brony.

                        I started out seeing the memes for it everywhere, eventually started looking a little deeper and then watching ep 1, then 2, then the whole series and on-going.

                        The opening two parter could easily be adapted to an epic D&D adventure. As dark as the themes and situations go, this should rally be for adults only. But it's like those old Bugs Bunny and Woody Woodpecker cartoon where there's the slapstick for the kids, and so many double meanings for the adults.

                        Great comedy, Dr. Who nods, lots of other fandom nods as well.

                        I'd say best pony is a toss up between Rainbow Dash and Derpy

                        I met her, fifteen years ago; I was told there was nothing left; no reason, no conscience, no understanding; and not even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, of good or evil, right or wrong. I met this cow, with this blank, pale, emotionless face, and the blackest eyes... the devil's eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach her, and then another seven trying to keep her locked up because I realized that what was living behind that cow's eyes was purely and simply... evil.

                          Yeah, one for the girlz and stuff I guess. Not for mature hardcore horror men.
