THE MOST IMPORTANT CARTOON EVER MADE
« on: March 01, 2011, 05:07:56 AM »

I am aware of its thinginess but still cannot fathom why I should care.

I'm trying to figure out how this is any different from the last time nerds and hipsters adopted a show ostensibly aimed at children. Not that I'm trying to slight that show or this one; I just don't see why one of these would be okay while the other is "seriously"

not just girls but my little pony

i mean there was some weird shit going down with powerpuff girls and avatar too

i can respect that those were objectively good children's shows and avatar in particular has a pretty cohesive narrative whose one-shot morals are actually well-integrated, features unusually strong and positive female leads, and makes the clever choice of nudging the child audience to most closely identify with the character without super powers

if i had a kid i would watch avatar and powerpuff girls with that kid and probably not want to kill myself

but let us not kid ourselves sirs there was some pretty weird and gross shit going down with avatar and powerpuff girls and i am seeing The Signs





i guess what i am trying to say is a little self-consciousness is okay sometimes and is in fact part of being an adult

Wasn't My Little Pony already a Hipster Thing at some point anyway?

Also, this is literally the first I've heard that they're remaking that show. Man, next thing you know, the Care Bears will come back.

Powerpuff Girls was legitimately a good show 50-70% of the time. If Neo Ponies is as enjoyable I would watch it with zero issue.

The problem is I'm pretty sure it's not and the majority of /b/ trolls just have gender role issues and try to cover it up with SO FAHNNY JOKE and then the rest of the internet goes along with it.

See I stopped watching Powerpuff Girls about halfway through the first season, not because it wasn't good, and not really because I wasn't the target audience, but because there was nothing really there to interest me and I had better shit to do.

I watched Avatar all the way through multiple times because I thought it was fantastic and interesting despite not being the "target audience" (I'm not sure I believe this though - Avatar was fantastic and interesting because it was more than just a show for kids).

I haven't seen MLP but I suspect it's worth watching if you're:
1. A little girl.
2. Just really into horses.
3. Bored.
4. Friends with any of the above, or with
5. A person who finds small, doe-eyed, pastel-colored horses sexually attractive.

In the interest of full disclosure: if a tiny blue mare named Sparklebutt batted her lashes, assured me I wouldn't get a disease and lifted her tail... why the fuck not, I've probably thought about worse.

Like Blossom in high-heeled leather boots and nothing else.

I've been watching it. It's basically Azumanga Daioh except with magical ponies.

The reason it can be socially acceptable for older people to watch PPG:

Powerpuff Girls - Big Lebowski

I don't know if the same can be said for MLP. The obsession around the internet disturbs me.

I dunno but lesbian goths who post pictures of their titties on their LJ's seem to like them.

That explains everything.

But I will never stop judging you.

As a man of my "geeky" interests, I am used to some ridicule about my hobbies. When it comes to some things, I have to sit down and weigh whether or not the subect is good enough for me to endure the ridicule I'll get for it.
DnD: Yes.
Avatar: Yes.
Comic books: Yes and no
MLP? Not at all. That show would have to be GOD TIER to make it worth watching. And the clips I have seen and the fanbase I'm encountered assured me that it is not.

Unless someone on here can convince me this is the best show since color TV was invented, I shall stay far, far, FAR away from MLP.

And so help me if one of you starts saying "everypony" or "brony" or "brohoof here" or any of that shit.

I lasted about 3 minutes of that before I couldn't take anymore of the above linked video.

So, in conclusion:
