I'm quite shocked that no one is talking about this show, seeing as Chozosanctuary has such a large community of up to date folks. I guess it's up to me!

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has been out for quite some time now, and all the episodes are--thankfully--on youtube. The show is directed/created by the same guy that did Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends and the quality of the show is on par with Fosters. Fosters was a fucking good show by the way.

Now, before you go "Conker you faggot..." and then proceed to mock me, let me say two things. One: the main demographic of this show, on Youtube, are males between the ages of 19 and 34. Two: the show deals with some very strong issues, they are just wrapped up in a purple and pink ponyville. Of all the episodes I've seen, I can honestly say I've encountered Socialism, alcoholism, racism, slavery, issues regarding homosexuals and homosexuality, paganism and other non Christianlike religious stuff, and Stockholm Syndrome. A show for kids you say? Bullshit. And I've only seen a handful of episodes! Six to one we have shit on capitalism, legalizing drugs, and how liberals are evil evil people who will ruin the United States.

So. Let's rave about MLP!

My favorite character has to be Pinkie Pie because she's totally the 4chan pony. She's so random, and while she isn't offensive like /b/ on the outside, she still manages to troll everyone in the show. "I need a quill" "Oh, well here's a quillsedia" /trollface.jpg while Spike walks away all filled with rage.

Spike is my second favorite character, mostly because he manages to fill in the roll of the male adult viewer. He's also the unofficial slave, and I can't help but root for the underdog.

I have yet to meet someone who really likes Twilight Sparkle, the main character. I have a theory here. See, Twilight Sparkle fills in the role of "straight character"--straight being the normal character of the bunch. She's sane. She's smart. She knows what is going on. The others are goofy and whacky in their own rights, with Pinkie Pie being the goofiest and whackiest of them all (for trolling purposes). So, it's hard to like the straight character when all the other characters are just more fun. But, the show NEEDS Twilight Sparkle, because there has to be a normal sane character that we can invest in and use as a ground. It's all quite simple.

So. any other /b/ronies here? I'm sure I'm not the only one.

FUCK YER

No

On another forum I go to we have this guy who keeps going on and on about how great this show is, insisting we all watch it, and wouldn't stop. Not only that, but I hear there are reports on other web forums where this is happening, people watching it and insisting it's the next Avatar: The Last Airbender (which it is most certainly not). Like, I don't know if you MLP guys are doing this to be ironic.

But I just have seen a lot of you guys around the net lately, like you're the next Scientologists or something.

People like to promote and discuss things they like. It's not unheard of. Though this surely isn't the next Avatar: The Last Airbender. It's not that good.

I can't speak for the other people though.

I don't care if it has some deep hidden meanings a la "The Tale of Scrotty McBoogerball" in it. It's still frickin' My Little Pony! No self respecting straight man would ever watch that little girly show.

Though at least now i know why i keep seeing people upload stuff based on it to Rule34. I thought it was just typical furfagotry.

Somehow I think I'm more of a self respecting straight man than you are, and yet here we are, having this conversation.

Now, I would like to talk about Derpy Hooves, an interesting character. She represents the American Dream you see, starting out small and with nothing, but with hard work and a bit of luck, turning into a wealthy pony. She's like Oprah only in grey pony form with slightly derped eyes. She started out as just a background stock character. Just some filler pony. YET LOOK WHERE SHE IS NOW! She has her own Wiki page. She's a fan favorite. She even has a speaking line in one episode where she says "muffins." She's moving up in the world! Inspirational? I think yes. I bet in season two she gets promoted even further.

See, these are messages kids don't pick up on, but we as self respecting straight adults grasp them like we grasp our dicks.

Conker, you are a faggot awesome.

This show is awesome. My sister showed me the "Best Day Ever" episode on Youtube last week, and I was pleasantly surprised. I definitely wasn't surprised when I found out it's by the creator of Powerpuff Girls and Foster's...

Kids need more programs like this.

@Morgil: I don't think you understand who a self-respecting straight man is.

the seeds of chaos have grown


Anywho, I'm not going to state you have to be gay to like MLP, from what I understand a lot of its humor is actually 4chan-esque that requires an older or corrupt mind to understand. Having that duality is a good thing, it just that I think there is too much hype around the show on the net lately.

Maybe I'll take a peek at it, sometime.

I agree with bold. It's by no means the rebirth of modern cartoons, and it shouldn't be treated as such. Hell, I started this thread for more my own amusement than actual discussion; I figured the people on this site don't watch the show, and that I could dazzle you all with my in depth readings of characters! :3

Also, the tattoo (in the OP in spoiler tags)

I started off not wanting anything to do with the show because the hype was pissing me off and I didn't want to get sucked in like I did Lucky Star. But, I got drunk one night and watched the first two episodes, and while they were charming, they weren't that great. Then the fans chided me for not giving it a better chance and told me to watch a few other episodes, namely, five, seven, and nine. So I did and was like "ha, this is kind of funny!"

I've watched six total. It'll take me awhile to get through them all because it's a last resort form of entertainment. But it's not a bad show, given the subject matter anyways.

Hell, last episode I watched had a small skit where Spike fell in a punch bowl and Pinkie Pie said "it looks like someone spiked the punch" and I laughed so ungodly hard at that. Booze joke on a children's cartoon :3 Awesome.
