in b4

some of you watch shoujo, shut up.

Seriously though, this show has renewed my belief in western cartoons after years of "KIDS ARE MORONS! BANANA PEALS ARE VIOLENT!".
A show made by Lauren Faust, who was majority involved with shows like the Power Puff Girls and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, and it is in my honest opinion incredibly well done.
"But what makes it good?" I hear you ask.
Well, the jokes are good and don't just rely on timed punchlines. they also require more than basic three-year-old intelligence to understand. There are also references to lots of stuff you'd never think would show up in this show. Most of them probably soaring about 12 feet above the heads of the original target demographic. Here are some of the things referenced over the span of the series: Back to the future, Pearl harbour, Lord of the Rings, Batman (the old movies), The A-team, Gremlins... I could go on all afternoon.
Anyway, the show is made in flash, but still the attention to detail is stunning. For example, the hair actually moves according to the laws physics.
Another nice thing is that the characters actually have distinct and developing personalties, something I find lacking in many cartoons today.

Seriously, the only thing that makes this for "little girls" is that "My little pony" in the title. It could just as well be about some other cartoon-personification-things.

I watched it, it was interesting but they had to finish the plot in the second episode... Bad move...

To move the final battle against the evil sister to the end of the season could made me watch all the episodes...

I've never bothered to actually watch the series, but I've heard some good stuff about it. Also, seeing that it's made by the same producer's as Foster's and PPG, I've decided to give it a go. I thought it was... alright; not bad, but not great, either. I'm assuming it gets better in the later parts of the series. Guess I'll keep watching for now.

Well... Ellis DOES like horses (or in this case: ponies). Also, that's a Waterflame song that the creator of this video used! o:

NO.

the best derp face belongs to Derpy Hooves.

In ep 8. I love how Pinky Pie says "chocolate chips" real slow.
