    Q: Okay... what in the world is this?

    A: It's a TV show called "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic".

    Q: ... What.

    A: It's a really good TV Show. Let me tell you-

    Q: HAHAHA-no. How can you even say that seriously, I mean REALLY?

    A: The show as headed by the same person who made the Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. I don't think I have to tell you that those shows were good-

    Q: Screw it, I hated those shows. And this show-how can you even defend it? I mean to like this show you must be girly as hell. Like you'd need to be all the embodiments of gay combined.

    A: Well if you could throw your silly fears of doing things your brofriends hate, you might see that this show is actually good.

    Q: Oh please how could this show be any good?! And don't throw any names around I don't care for that .

    A: There are really a lot of reasons why this show is so good. It's animation style has more depth than that of most modern cartoons. The episodes are longer than most cartoons, ditching plot setup and having more character development. The show focuses on fleshing out the characters. The animation is top-notch flash, and has little details that you might not catch on your first view. And it doesn't constantly hammer morals in.

    Q: I still think it's crap.

    A: Ok, then why don't you try to prove me wrong?

    You can watch it here:

    Hub, but there's a few good Youtube channels that have the episodes. (More Youtube)

    So, discuss the show! :goodjob:

    Seriously though, you should give this a try. The first episode isn't really that great, IMHO, but it does provide the backstory, which is, you know, kind of important.

    Please put specific discussion in spoilers for those who haven't seen it yet.

    This chart may be handy in the future.

    First recommendation: whether you get the Hub on cable TV or watch it online, it's really worth it to see the show in higher definition. iirc could throw in something about vector graphics here but again, you'd see the difference.

    Nice work on an OP, I was too lazy and didn't feel there was interest to make one on my own and then it wouldn't compare to other active threads on some other sites. (for the record that's neither SA nor [redacted] though I can't help but find it absolutely hilarious that those notorious sites actually banned ponies, too good and pure for them) Could help shore up any suggestions though, maybe throw in the introductions/bios of the mane cast :)p) into the OP. Way too much art work/parodies out there but then again one can take their pick. What I will do is link to some cool music though because the music numbers in the show itself are amazing and then stuff like the below is just cool:



    Oh, and

    ALL THESE PONIES ARE YOURS EXCEPT FOR FLUTTERSHY, ATTEMPT NO FUNNY BUSINESS THERE.

    I have three daughters, might leave it to them to decide this show's merits or not.

    Yeah you're really in luck then, having a legitimate excuse to watch the show and really it's probably loads better than any other kids show you'd find. Even if you don't like it that much it will surely be funny and enjoyable enough.

    Also obligatory spoiler, can't believe I forgot, watch out those of you not caught up on episodes

    That is either not a character or I haven't seen enough episodes.

    You might be thinking of Twilight Sparkle, the main mane character

    +1 Internets for a Dr. McNinja reference. That aside, this show is actually surprisingly good. If that puts my masculinity into question... so be it.

    As I always say, if the show's too girly for you, then you're not man enough to watch! :p

    cardgame have you not actually seen Sonic Rainboom yet? If so and with you liking Dash so much you're in for a real treat. Haven't seen today's yet but man it simply has to be good, my Pinkie Sense can feel it.

    I'm always on the lookout for shows for my daughter to watch that aren't crap.

    Right now the only one I've seen that I haven't thought was crap was a Candidian cartoon based on the Little Bear books.

    There's a lot of Canadian influence of the production team of Friendship is Magic iirc. But I can't stress enough how many light years ;) better this is than so much else not just in cartoons but on TV overall.

    Man the most recent Eurobeats are really really awesome, that guy is brilliant. Still like the older Art of the Dress one too.

    I remember watching the original series way way back and that was awful enough. Keep your crappy horse show to yourself and wake me up when they bring back DuckTales.
