This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout 'Save us!'... and Gon's Balls will whisper 'First... comes... rock!' Hah!  Made you stare at Naruto's Marshmallow!  Pushing the logo off-center to drive TheOcean insane.

Really? Because what they are now is the polar opposite of what they were when they came out. So really, you hate everything, is what you're saying.

Also, this thread needs a reboot. It's making the new show seem really pathetic, which is awful since Seto Kaiba's ego pales in comparison to this show's awesomeness.

Watch PONIES: The Anthology, and you will know why you need to watch Friendship is Magic. All. 26. Episodes.

you'd understand if you watched it. It's by the same studio that did Dexter's Lab and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. For us it's nostalgic on a whole new level. Also it's fricking amazing.

Tried watching it. Its mediocra; no better or worse than any other kidshow Ive seen in recent times. Theme song is catchy but thats about it.

Also, from the first episode they say that the 6th element is friendship is magic.

THEREFORE BECAUSE THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS MAGIC THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS FRIENDSHIP IRL. STOP RUBBING IT IN OUR FACES PONIES

Please note the tried. It was because my gf went to watch it and I decided to join her. Watched until halfway through episode 3, which at that point I actually genuinely wanted to enjoy the show, but couldnt and as just getting bored, wanting to do other things. I fail to see the appeal really

Men weren't the intended target audience. Young girls had been the intended audience from the get go.

Actually, Lauren Faust said, that although it is a little kids show, she wanted to make it so that the parents who would have to watch the show with their kids would enjoy it too.

...maybe that's why like, 30 year old guys like it. -shrug-

It'd really help this "case" if the main post of this page weren't so gory.

I thought the OP would be in violation of some rules somewhere (and no screwing them because you DON'T have the money to).

Me, I have no interest in the show itself (I couldn't possibly watch it for fear of cracking up with laughter), but the meme generated from it is quite interesting.

Well, yes, there's that to but my main point is that men from 16+ weren't a specifically intended target.

Well, it is, and always will be a show targeted at little girls, because it's My Little Pony. There must have been some drastic change on the show to encourage men to watch it, and for it to become an internet meme. I wonder what that was...

Hmm, let me see how much I can explain.....

Well, it boils down to good old fashioned well thought out characterization, storytelling, and a good amount of comedy. When it comes down to it, it's in the same fashion as any other kids show that you could go and watch at any age and enjoy such as like Dexter's Lab and Powerpuff Girls.

Most of the commotion comes just from the fact that it's MLP that's getting the treatment this time, a franchise that we all thought was ruined forever (not like there were any signs otherwise). A cuteness factor (that's probably a given considering the target audience, but there's also been a very positive change in animation using Flash) and the whole pony/magic setting lends to the popularity as well. Personally, I don't even consider this part of MLP because it's not like any of the other shows and the only thing they share are a few common character names.

Think about it, if this were another kids show, maybe even the exact same show but with humans as all the characters, there'd be a significant difference in the response it's been getting, now wouldn't it?

Of course it wouldn't have the same response as it does now.

And that's it's existence is to promote the toys like every previous incarnation. Also, characters from this incarnation do share personality traits from characters that date back all the way to the first series. I forgot most of these but one I that I do remember is Firefly and one other pony having similarities to Rainbow Dash.
