Let's be nice to Kris, and start a proper thread for all further discussion of the show.

I welcome all those who wish to post, including those who can't see why we actually like the show, but please try to be nice in this topic. If you don't understand, ask instead of accusing, and so on and so forth. Love and tolerance and all that.

Among other things, It'd be cool just to find out how many of us are here.

Isn't that moral lesson learned from watching My Little Pony and thus the people who haven't seen it are less likely to have said judgement?

It's not really the moral lesson of the show, though many try to say it is. It's more of a catchphrase both sides have tried to use in the past to get the upper hand in arguments. Point is, this is a relatively peaceful thread, and it would be nice if it could stay that way.

Six ponies and their experiences. Each episode has some problem that usually has some root to one of the main characters, and they spend the episode trying to solve it.

Haha, I like how you actually went and made a new thread for the topic.

About the show, I don't really know what to say about it, other than that it's fantastic. Great stories, great animation (these guys have really taken Flash animation to a new level), great characters, voice actors, gags and references. Everything's just great about it. Heck, I even love the songs, and anybody who knows me, knows that I despise songs in cartoons and animated movies! The fandom is also probably the best, and kindest I've ever seen around. It actually kinda reminds me of the Dink community back in the day, except it's much bigger and more productive. Plus, I really like how the show creators are so loving, acceptive and close to the community. Sometimes it feels that we fans are part of creating the show just as much as they are. I think the show's lessons have actually stuck with me, just like they seem to with most people in the fandom. I try to take things much calmer and I think it has taught me to be a better and calmer person in general. Of course, I still get mad from time to time but that's just me, but so far the show's done a better job than any of my therapists have.

I know there are a few other bronies on this site, but I'll let them come out of the stable, so to speak, if they wish to. But I don't think there's anything shameful in being a brony. It's the best, most productive community in perhaps ever. Hell, they recently made a full-length fanmade episode. That's a milestone in fandoms! If that doesn't convince you that the brony fandom is pretty dang cool, then nothing will.

All of the above, and about the hilarious references: The storywriters and animators of the show wanted not only the children to like it but also their parents. So how to do that? They added in many references to other stuff like the whole Star Wars ceremony walk and ponified big lebowski gang.

Big list

While I don't know anything about MLP other than the basic stereotypes, I do know that PowerPuff Girls is a great show. Basically, just because something is targeted towards a specific demographic (young girls in this case) doesn't mean it can't also just be a good show no matter who you are.

I think he means the 3D rendered movie, but as much as PPGZ was a disappointment, as a stand alone show it wasn't bad. It's more that it tried to be like PPG, and that it wasn't as good.

How do you separate yourselves from "Bronies"? Some people take calling themselves "Bronies" is a form of self-identity. I notice a lot of call themselves "bronies" now, making it sound like another form of classification instead of simply liking the show. It's like calling yourself a "metalhead" or a "juggalo" to me, especially since I see so much of that in the youth.

Well, initially I would personally have classified a brony as someone who's part of the MLP community in one way or another, and a simple fan of the show as someone who just watches the show. However, the more common thought within the community, and one which I'm slowly beginning to sort of agree with, is that everyone who likes ponies (not real ones, but "ponies" as in FiM-wise ), is a brony, and someone who likes the show and claims he/she's not, is a brony in denial.

I saw a really funny/good picture which basically explains it, but I can't seem to find it anymore.

I am a brony, and I don't deny it, but I think it's possibly to like the show without being a brony. It really comes down to if you JUST watch the show, you are a fan, whereas if you interact with the larger community, you are a brony.

Adult fans of the show are referred to as bronies whether they're "part of the community" or not, as Skull claims. It's like calling yourself a "metalhead" or a "juggalo".

That's what I've experienced anyway.

I sometimes enjoy talking with bronies, if they have the same views as me. For example, I'm weary of anything fanmade that might not seem to be canon. Leaving that aside, I do not consider myself to be a member of any pony-related community. At least, not a contributing one.

i wasn't aware there was any debate on what makes you a brony. kinda stupid. if you're a fan, don't you just get the title by default?

also, what's the difference betweeen a trekkie and a trecker (no, i won't look it up). maybe this whole fandom thing is too complicated for an uncool lame-o like me.

Yeah me, thanks.

I never really understood what's so cool about that show. I mean..
1.It's a show for small kinder garten girls, so I don't expect a lot of story or complexity to happen, just a shit ton of pink
2.It's ponies. I personally don't find ponies too interesting. I mean, I do...just not.....those ponies.

So uh, if so many people like My Little Pony, then why don't we also like Arthur,eh?! I'm OFFENDED BY YOUR LACK OF INTEREST IN ARTHUR. I shall build my own Arthur fanbase! Yeeeaaahh...... We shall call ourselves....Arthurs?..no, arthies...No...browthur...NO...shit, this is harder than I thought.

you'd be surprised about the "little girl" thing. yes, a lot of the toys are aimed at them in stereotypical ways with the creepy hair and the pink shit, but outside of that, you won't find that in anything else except in small amounts.

it honestly looks like the show's creators and some toy manufacturers are trying as best they can to not go down the pink and glitter and gender roles path. and that's good.

i don't think there's much lore outside of marvel, dc, star trek and wars and whatever with as much depth as the elder scrolls.

there's not exactly a continuing story, but that's not to say every episode is totally disconnected. events matter and the shit leading up to one of the season finale things was an ongoing thing.

hopefully other fans will know what i'm talking about there. it involved a big red guy.

equestria is the name of continent in the show. in the first equestria girls movie, some bitch called sunset shimmer steals twilight sparkle's crown and flees to earth, so she goes in after them.

but, this is apparently the Doug version of earth because there's a bunch of people with their pony counterparts' colours as their skin and hair.

dunno if there would be ponies on earth in this universe since there are no humans on whatever planet equestria's on.
