My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic!

Ok...I admit, I recently discovered this show and it has become a guilty pleasure for me. My Little Ponies were my favorite toy growing up. I had a HUGE collection...actually I still have it. It is waiting in boxes for when I have kids. I'd better have at least one girl! Aaand every now and then I will still buy the occasional My Little Pony item. Plus this cartoon is by the creators of Powerpuff girls, which was another cartoon I loved...so how could I NOT watch this show???

I started reading about the show and realized it has a pretty crazy internet fan following. Are there any other fans on this board? Were you a fan of MLP before seeing Friendship is Magic, or is that what got you started?

    I grew up collecting the toys, and I watched the original movie, so yeah, I'm a fan, too.

    I watched a few episodes of the new series (even though I am waaay too old for their target demographic!) because some of my animation-loving friends raved about it. I have to say, I was impressed! There was a lot more depth to the stories than I expected.

  • I started watching My Little Pony becasue my hipster cousin told me to. I was like "Ptttchhhhh whatever" and after watching the first episode I was hooked. I decided I'm going to order a Fluttershy shirt offline. AND a store nearby me was selling pony merchandise. I got Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy Action "figures". I feel so cool. Heehee I also have a few notepads and some magnets with all the ponies. My favorite characters are Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie.
    I also want to make the point that MLP-FIM is AMAZINGLY well-animated and written. Its not cliche, tacky or creepy. Its totally appropriate and I would feel comfortable letting my children (if I had any; I made my little brothers watch it though ) watch it because its just that good.

    Open in new window


    Anywhoser- that was my ringing endorsement. I LOVE that show! Anyone else have a favorite character(s)/ favorite moment(s)/ favorite episode(s)?

    ZXFEWIREWIREGIREGHTRHRTTRTRIGHIGTR MY LITTLE PONY.
    Yeah I love it to bits.
    LOVE IT. XD
    My favorite pony from the mane six (Laaaaawl.) is probably Rainbow Dash or Rarity. I adore both! Oh! And Pinkie Pie!
    Oh god I have no idea who I love best!
    My favorite episode by far is "Suited for Success" because I TOTALLY know that "ohmygodsewingiscrazywhydidIsignupforthis" feeling. XD

    I like Princess Celestia the best (and there needs to be more Nightmare Moon/Luna!) and my favorite background pony is Lyra, that mint-and-white unicorn.

    ...I can't believe I have favorite ponies. The show really is that good, though.

    Hee. This makes me happy.

    What I love most about FIM is that my husband watches it with me. In fact, it was one of his friends who suggested we watch it originally. As soon as the opening song started, hubby says, "I feel silly." :P But by the end of it we both wanted to see more. It's definitely not as cheesy as the original cartoon. Loved it when I was a kid, but I don't know if I could sit through it now.

    I think Fluttershy is my favorite. Although it makes me happy that Applejack is there, too, because she was always one of my favorites from the original toy line. Not sure what my favorite episode is yet since I've only seen a few so far. I hear there is a Dr. Whooves, though. I'm dying to see that one!

    @Awkward Birdy... "yay." ;)

    @Phamiliar-
    Yes, there is Dr Whooves! You actually get an awesome closeup of him in Winter Wrap Up. I'm not a Dr Who fan, but I thought it was cute to add him in.
    My favorite background character is probably the beloved Derpy Hooves. She's so darn cute C8

    I saw that this show was on t.v. one day, and thought about Awkward Birdy; knowing you love the show so much. Heehee, that GIF was cute!

    If it's on t.v. tomorrow, I'll have to watch it and see what I think of it.

    Winter wrap up, winter wrap uuup!!

    Yes, they do have pretty obscure references to Dr. Who, Star Trek, and more things I haven't yet found. Even Weird Al Yankovic wants to be featured on the show!!


    It was actually my boyfriend who introduced me to MLP, we do think the show is very smart compared to most TV shows for kids at the moment.

    He's totally a brony and happily recommends the show to others. I even once asked him if he'd wear a MLP tshirt, and he said yes!

    So... me being the awesome girlfriend that I am, I made him a MLP tshirt. The design was my own take on that famous Beatles photo where they're on profile, in a row, but with the 6 main ponies instead. In color. Over a black tshirt.
    I made one for myself, too. And every time we wear them, we get asked how we got one.

    I've been meaning to take a picture of us wearing them. I'll be sure to post it when I do.



    Thank you, Awkward Birdie for this link!

    The other day my seven year old cousins came over to my house.
    We had an in-depth conversation about the show.
    Also, I've made the mane 6, Derpy Hooves, and Applebloom on Sims 3. I'm proud of myself.

    Okeh, so I turned on the t.v. this afternoon, and this show happened to be on (just started)! I decided to watch it and it was sooooooo cute! I think I'll be watching this show more often. xD

    OOHH, teas.

    For some reason, I read that as "tees", as in t-shirts.
    That link is rare find, indeed.

    This particular episode happened to be on t.v. yesterday; sooooooo damn cute (especially Fluttershy)! :3 Rainbow Dash was cute at the end with the "OMYGOSHOMYGOSHOMYGOSHOMYGOSH!" <3

    I don't know which pony is my favorite yet (as I'd have to watch more episodes), but I love Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, and Fluttershy. (:

    The first episode I watched was Feeling Pinkie Keen. I looooooved the ending; so hilarious and random!

    Spike: *BIG gasp*

    *Princess Celestia falls out of nowhere from the sky*

    Spike: o.O .....Twitchy tail? Holy guacamole!



    I actually won a toy of Twilight Sparkle once; I don't know if I still have it or not, though. By the way, the voice actor for Twilight Sparkle sounds phamiliar....

    I sooo want to try those! But every single one is caffeinated...and I can't have them. Only herbal and rooibos teas for me. *sad face* Still awesome, though!

    ...wut?

    Hehe. Seriously, though, I think the voice actor for Twilight Sparkle is the same person who played Bubbles in Powerpuff Girls. :) Plus she has done a ton of other voice acting roles. I'm sure you have heard her around quite a bit.

    I ordered the Rarity tea. I couldn't resist - Earl Grey is one of my all-time favorite teas, so Earl Grey + vanilla + mint? YUM.

    I'll let you guys know how it is. ;)

    I am sorry there are no herbal versions, phamiliar...I didn't even think of that. Maybe someone will make some - people are creating new tea blends on there all the time, and lots of them are fandom-themed.

    Well, just the fact that it exists is pretty awesome and makes me happy anyway. :) Plus, I'm glad you linked to that site, because it sounds like they have a lot of really yummy herbal and rooibos teas there. I'm not a huge fan of fruity flavors, and that seems to be all I can find in the stores around here, so I'm definitely going to try some of their non-fruity varieties!

    ETA: I really loved reading all the tea descriptions. Sounds like good fits. Derpy definitely made me giggle.

    Guys, I'm gonna give you a word of advice: if you scare easily, DO NOT READ THE FANFICTION CUPCAKES. The actual story isn't that scary (to mep bit the picture accompanying it has haunted me for the past two days. Q-Q
    Also, have you guys heard the Luna song? I can't link it on my phone, but it's fantastic! Youtube: Luna (Nightmare Mode), then click on the video under the same title by OddessyEurobeat. I love that guy- he makea Eurobeat versions of all the FiM songs!
    I'll post my favorite MLP video on the 19th! Stay tuned! XDDDDDD

    I don't know that hulu has it, but I know Netflix doesn't. I watched them all on youtube. The account that has the best quality, in my opinion is this person's account. here is a link to the first episode. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JeJ6-gN0eB4

    I may need to check out this show sometime soon. Everyone says it's so good, so I might as well watch it.

    I would like to give an early WELCOME TO THE HERD to TheCrackedMirror and Lovella. <3
    I've only met one person who watched the first two episodes and didn't fall in love. I think it'll grow on him, though.

    I just found this and thought it was cute;

    Which My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Pony Are You?

    My result was;

    Twilight Sparkle

    An all-round goodie, you're noble at heart and strict about following morals. Your intellect surpasses the common pony; you have a great eagerness to learn more and fill your mind with knowledge. While you can sometimes be labeled as a "smarty pants", you always keep true to yourself and would much prefer to stay your brilliantly-brainy self than become someone you're not. A lot of people would consider you an excellent role model; not just because of your intelligence, but because you're also so genuine and virtuous.
