Back when I heard about this showin the summer of 2011, I thought I wouldn't like it due to the fact it was a reboot of a franchise I don't even like that much, and I didn't understand how a My Little Pony show could be this popular. So when I finally got the chance to watch it, didn't like it, that was no surprise considering it was based off a franchise I don't care for. However, I gave it more chances for it to improve, and I eventually came to loving it.
FIM is about a young pony named Twilight Sparkle who is a student of Princess Celestia. Twilight is instructed to take time away from her studies and make some friends. She, and her assistant, Spike, become friends with Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Rarity, Applejack and Pinkie Pie. Together, they have adventures in Ponyville and learn about the magic of friendship. Now the premise may sound corny, but don't start thinking it will turn out to be bad, because its ultimately executed very perfectly.
All of the main six are super cute and have really interesting character development to them and are also very likeable and relatable. Twilight Sparkle is the bookworm of the group who focuses more on studying than making friends and is also very smart. Rainbow Dash is a tomboyish pegasus pony who is brash, yet brave. Fluttershy is a typical silent girl who speaks very softly and shy and is trying to come out of her shell. Pinkie Pie is a hyperactive and crazy pony who loves to throw parties and also likes sweet and sugary treats, she is by far the most silliest and hyperactive pony of the mane six, even though she can be slightly annoying at times it's not that much of a big deal. Rarity (my favorite pony) is a beautiful and fashionate unicorn pony who designs great dresses for everyone and usually hates getting covered in unsanitary things such as mud or dirt. Applejack is a tough cowgirl who is a hard worker and is pretty much similar to Sandy Cheeks except less annoying. There are other characters such as Spike the Dragon, The CMC and others, and they're pretty interesting characters too.
The stories are also decent, even though some may be stories we have already seen in other shows, I don't mind because this show is supposed to teach about friendship.
For a show that teaches about friendship, it does a great job at sending morals to kids and the morals are great and not shoved in your face. If only there were more shows these days that taught morals like this.
The animation is great, nicely done and flows smoothly throughout the show and doesn't look choppy. The artwork is absolutely beautiful and has some pretty colorful visuals, and the backgrounds look good.
The humor is very funny and clever, especially when its from Pinkie Pie with all the random things she does, and beside from Pinkie Pie's source of comedy, the show has some great gags and never fails to make me laugh.
The voice acting does fit the character's well and sounds very charming.
The songs are good and pretty catchy, but one problem with them is that they kind of drag on for a bit, but other than that the songs are nice and catchy despite that they kind of drag on.
In all honesty, I think this show was made for kids. I mean if it wasn't then I honestly don't know why the hell there would be a such thing as bronies, but whatever. I don't know why some people hate this, come on people!! There are worser shows out there. I have been a huge brony ever since The beginning of Spring 2012 and will continue being one forever. MLP FIM is a great show, and in my viewpoint, a masterpiece. The stories are pretty good, the characters are likeable, the voice acting is good, the humor is funny, the songs are catchy, and I'm amazed at how it can appeal to all audiences, not just little girls. So regardless of your age or gender, you must see this show ASAP. Don't be turned off by the fact that it's a My Little Pony show, it's honestly not in my book, its just a fun show for everyone to enjoy, please give it a chance. You may not want to start off with the beginning of the first season, it did start off greatly, but some may not like it because a lot of people stated it was boring and overall not so good of a start for an awesome show like this. Thankfully, the show improved significantly as time went on. I don't think there will ever be a show like this ever in the future. Really, it's great. Rating: 10/10
Okay, let me start out by saying this. I am no Brony!! Yeah, I'm a 23 year old guy who has watched this show before, but I'm simply judging it as someone who was curious. Maybe it was the concept of the show, that being ponies based on toys that were obviously made for girls, but I always stayed away from the My Little Pony show. Then I found out about the Brony (guy fans) fanbase, which honestly I do find really strange, but whatever, that's just me. So being curious I decided to check Friendship Is Magic out. And I have to admit... It's surprisingly good.
My Little Pony has likeable characters. And not just the main 7, but likeable side characters too. Heck, the few bad guys, despite being in something like My Little Pony, are pretty menacing. All 7 main characters, Twilight, Spike, Rainbow Dash, Rarity, Apple Jack, Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie, are cool, and surpisingly funny. The only ones I could have a little disdain for is Pinkie for being a bit annoying, and Rarity for being vain sometimes. But even so, it's not that often. The voice acting and the animation style is pretty good too.
As for the episodes, some are better than others, and some are kinda random. But most of them are pretty decent. And My Little Pony does have some good morals, which is pretty cool considering this came out around the same time as shit like Regular Show.
If I'm honest with myself, I think this show was made for kids. I can't figure out how this show got so popular with so many adult guys. But whatever, it's their thing not mine. I'm not a super fan of it, but for what it is, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic is a pretty decent cartoon. It's much better than most cartoons that are playing on Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon or Disney Channel anyway. So, yeah. I say check it out.
This show definitely surprised me. I was going into it as a stereotype saying it was only for little girls but I quickly changed my mind after watching the first episode all the way through. The stories are solid, the animation is fantastic, the characters are likeable and relatable and it seems like you get taught a life lesson without even knowing that it's being done. Granted season 3 was weak but for what it came out to be well it could have been worse. Season 4 on the other hand is possibly my favorite season so far, it hasn't finished yet at the time that I'm writing this but so far I've seen more funny references and jokes than I think I've ever seen in a cartoon in a long long time.
The show also seems to have this weird way of changing your character (for the better!). I was planning on finishing school in the field of technology but this show has really inspired me to look around and see what else is out there. I'm going to finish off my tech courses but I may take a class in animation now seeing as how fun and creative it really can be.
Of course you have to go into this show with an open mind or if you're like me and you're going to judge it from the theme song then you should at least see it through, you might just like it.
I really hate this f*cking show. What makes this show annoying and horrible up to its limits are the bronies. They are horrible people that support this show like it's the Messiah. The jokes aren't funny, it's boring, the characters have personalities of an ape, my most hated character is ***light, I mean Twilight Sparkle, because she always disobeys her master.
UPDATE: This show is not as bad as I thought I was when I first viewed it. The show is really darn good. Great songs, great lessons, and animation better than any modern cartoon out there. The holy grail of animation is here. Keep up the good work, Faust!
This show is simply one of the reasons why TV is going downhill. The charekters are ugly and are failures at lives (like all the shows fans are 30 year old failures but we will get back to that in a moment) they all have stupid f***ing names like flutterfly or raainbowshine or whatever and they are all th same. There is a fast blue one who makes me sad cuz they are stupid. Then there are astuppid purple one named Purply or whatever with a ugly pet drago. (you know, from the trashy exuse for a game called EarthBound 2 on the GBA) and there is the ugly orange one named apple jacks. .The fanbase are 99% 1000 ton, 30 year old failures at lives who work at burger king. I mean, WHY? There are way better shows like uncle granpa or the haunted hataways! This is an insult to tv, and everyone on earth. This is the bottem of the barrel for tv. There are many horrible tv shows but this is the end of the line, the worst of them all, it CANNOT get worst that . If you like this show, you should be simply ashamed you failure. Im disgusted at the fact ANYONE likes this show. Avoid this, show. Dont listen to any other revies cuz they are all fake.
Over the past 3 years, the quality of popular cartoons went down a steep hill or got canceled. Many shows I used to watch growing up are not as funny or as clever as they used to be. The only shows I thought were halfway-decent were Adventure Time, Regular Show, and (to a certain extent) Phineas and Ferb, but they weren't enough to convince me that cartoons would be as good as they used to be. 2 years later and my friends tell me to watch a show called "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" and my first reaction was "WHAT!?", but I finally gave it a chance. After the first 2 episodes I'm like, "This wasn't that bad, but not too good either", but then I watched more episodes out of order, and I start to realize that this is actually pretty good. Then after watching the entire series, I can safely say that this is my favorite cartoon currently airing right now. The writing is well thought out and clever, the characters are well-defined and relatable, the humor is great (some of the best cartoon humor I've seen in a while), the animation is well done, it has great moral values (it can range from something simple as jealousy of somebody to something as mature as self-sacrifice) and even the music is catchy. I can understand why someone wouldn't care to take a look at the show because of how girly it looks at first glance, but this is truly an amazing cartoon. Watch it with an open mind, and you will most likely enjoy it. If you don't like it, that's fine. It's stupid to think everyone should like the same things anyway. In my opinion, it is the most enjoyable cartoon since the early days of Spongebob.
I can safely say that MLP:FiM is my all-time favorite show. Sure, some times the characters are piss stains, but the show is still pretty damn perfect. Let's run down the seasons quickly.
Season 1 was good, and most of the episodes were solid. Many of the jokes were right on time and this was when the episodes would air on Fridays instead of crappy Saturdays. Season 1 gets a solid 7 overall.
Season 2 was great! Most episodes were epic. Hurricane Fluttershy is in this season and remains my all-time favorite episode. The writers were geniuses. Most of the episodes were fantastic and this is probably the best season. Season 2 gets a supreme rating of 8.
I really didn't like Season 3 though. Don't get me wrong there was a couple of good episodes like Sleepless in Ponyville but most of the episodes sucked, honestly. Season 3 gets a very low rating of 3.
However Season 4 seems like a big improvement so far. I really liked the first three episodes and the show seems like it is picking up again. So far Season 4 gets an excellent rating of 7.
Even though Season 3 was kind of dull, I still love this show and is my favorite show of all time.
I'm A Girl Who Just Adores My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic But Is Seems That Twilight Sparkle Has Now Become The Main Character. In My Opinion There Should Be No Main Because What Will Become Of The Other Ponies? They'll Just Become Generic Ponies. And What Is Up With Twilight Now? Why Is She So Important All She Did Was Put The Elements Of Harmony Back Into The Tree. Even Rarity Could Have Done That.
Even though I think this show has its faults, My Little Pony is a surprisingly clever and enjoyable sign that cartoons can be done well. Out of the main characters, my favorite has to be Twilight Sparkle, because she has a personality that I am attracted by in cartoons.
I see this show all over the internet. Unlike my last review, I'm going to take this from a calm approach.
I had a crush on a girl who liked this show. I bullied her for it, accused her for all sorts of things. She wanted me to watch the show, and I accused her for being gay. But she told me of Rainbow Dash, a tomboy pony. I mean that is awesome, but wouldn't this show be more fun if it were other types of animals? I think girly ponies won't make me watch this show. I'm going to have to stick with SpongeBob (1999-2006) and Invader Zim before 2002.
You all may go ahead an like this show, but I want to get a message out that I suffer from a psychological problem called splitting. The fanbase also tends to irritate me.
I just really don't want to watch this show. It will really get on my nerves. The fanbase does that enough.
I don't like a show about friendship and why it is magic. Hate this, not better than Disney Channel animations (Phineas and Ferb, Gravity Falls, and Wander Over Yonder). PLEASE IMPROVE THIS PIECE OF BOO BOO AND REPLACE IT WITH A BETTER MLP! NOT ADDING TO FAVORITES OR ANYTHING WITH THIS STUPID SHOW! DON'T RECOMEND THIS!
It's a turn about friendship and too bright animation. Looks like rainbow vomit. The characters are terrible, and I don't want to watch PMVs about made up MLP songs. I didn't like any of the seasons, they were unfunny, lame, and stupid. It should be cancelled.
A Wander Over Yonder disliker likes this stupid show and I am not recommending to my friends or my parents. I avoid it all the time, and I hate it when my sister watches it on Netflix. No golden years or anything. The series finale will be the future to bronies.
The EG movie was awesome because the humans were better than the ponies. I love the Cafeteria Song. This movie was better than the series. It didn't go downhill.
The series looked like it was going downhill with the 6.5 ratings, and this is the only 1.0 rating for this show. Please improve so I can like it.
2013 S4 update. Last decade did not live up to the 1990s in cartoons on TV, but 10.10.2010 changed it all. My Little Pony: Friendship was shown on the new channel called The Hub. Twilight Sparkle the pony unicorn lives with her friends in the Equestria city Ponyville where we follow their ups and downs every week. The pony animtaion looks like the 1979 Narnia cartoon, but still we cry along with the ponies too at the sad parts. There is something from everyone here and it includes the ponies breakdowns, epic songs and Pinkie Pie the party pony. There is a load to explore and that is Cloudsville, forests, events and on. Many celebrities stars in the show. Season 4 is on the way next month. I can hinjt about new villains. If you haven't got enough of the show explore the fandom that includes fics, memes, PMV and on. The Brony fandom is big in the states, and it might hit Europe next year where I live. If you need over 20 minutes of feel good go watch Friendship is
I first watched my little pony gen 3 and I really liked all the different ponies, my favorite character was Minty, when friendship is Magic came out, I wasn't that interested because I wasn't familiar with any of the ponies except Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash, I'd always wanted Fluttershy to be on My Little Pony so I was quite interested in that and liked the show when I finally watched it. My biggest gripes about the show however is the fact that Celestia is a princess and not a Queen so some pony must be at a higher rank than Celestia like Queen Chrysalis. Magical Mystery Cure had potential, but was rushed and too short. The mane ponies are good role models and viewers should be able to relate to at least one of them. The characters are like able, the style is appealing and a lot better than in the previous generations, the songs are also very good. Now my favorite character is Fluttershy. Anyone can enjoy this show.
I first watched this show back in 2011 because I heard that lauren faust, who worked on two of my favorite shows (foster's and powerpuff girls) was the creator and also, alot of people kept on saying that the show was something like a godsend. The first episode I watched was putting your hoof down, and I never watched the show again because the show felt like a really girly show and it was a huge dissapointment. That is until march 2013, when I gave the show another chance because IDON'TKNOW and I thought that the show was pretty okay. Now I have watched almost all of the episodes and I can safely say that the show is a very decent show. But the show's first two episodes were a little bland to me, but fortunately, the show improved alot.. The show does not rely on immature fart and toilet jokes and the characters are all really interesting and they all have great character development. Of course, some episodes were better than others and, I don't care what anypony.. I MEAN, anybody says, I thought that the season 3 finale was really good. The songs were fantastic and I honestly don't see what is wrong with alicorn twilight. But I think the show is reeeeeeeeeeaally overated and there are honestly other modern cartoons that I find to be better than this show (gravity falls, adventure time, regular show etc. ) .And I think that lauren's previous works (fosters and powerpuff girls) are better too. So I guess I'm not a full fledged brony, but I still think the show is good and I would recommend this show to anyone, even adults.
I am going to say right now, I just don't like My Little Pony. But Lauren Faust has made My Little Pony likable. Don't believe me? Well let's go down the list.
Plot: Twilight Sparkle has been sent to Ponyvile to make friends. There, Twilight, Spike, Rainbow Dash, Pinkie, Rarity, Applejack, Fluttershy, the Cutie Mark Crusaders and more have adventures. How could a plot like that be so good? It just is, although it is kinda boring and might just turn people off. It gets a 7/10 just because of turning people off.
Morals: In almost every episode, they have a moral at the end. They are helpful and don't rub it in your faces. 9/10 because some episodes morals have flaws (Dragon Quest hint hint).
Animation: It is awesome, and animated in flash. Remember when that didn't work? (Johnny Test hint hint). 10/10
Music: Daniel Ingram did a really great job with the songs. They are catchy but they have too much repetitive lyrics. 9/10
Acting: Awesome! Not ear grating at all (except for Derpy (old (sorry) and new) and and Bon Bon's voices)
Writing: . It could be bad at times. Remember this? "But why would you want to Spike?" Wow. Your not like your race, but why would you want to be? Idiot. 7/10
Characters: The characters are varied so I am going to have to start with just the main 6. Twilight is a good role model and she is with me. Spike's episodes are terrible, but Spike? . with me. Although I will admit that he should be a dog than a baby dragon. What is this? Dragon Tales? The rest of the main 6 are . (Rainbow Dash is NOT a lesbian btw). 10/10
Summary: You know when a show sounds girly and you try to get someone to watch a show with no butt jokes, good characters and catchy music and people keep saying no and insulting us? Yeah, this show would be it. Like I just said it is a show that has no butt humor and great morals. I recommend it. 9.5/10
It's a generally great show in my opinion. The animation is super smooth and detailed, and the environments are almost never dull. The characters are also very likable and relatable. They may seem a bit 2D at first, but if you continue watching, you'll see that there's a lot more depth to them (meaning that the characters have flaws and they learn from their mistakes). The writing is also very well done. It's written in such a way that people of all ages and genders can enjoy it. It also uses sharp lines and it never makes itself stupid (Pinkie Pie is crazy, not stupid). And besides the intro song, most of the songs are catchy and enjoyable. Winter Wrap Up and A True True Friend are great examples.
You can tell the people behind this show put a lot of care and effort into it to make it a great experience for everyone. I definitely recommend this show and it gets a solid 10.
I was truly amazed by the quality of this cartoon. I never expected a show about candy-colored ponies in a fantasy world to be so AMAZINGLY good (writing, animation, voice acting, music, character development, story telling, etc). I urge all to give it a chance!!!!!!!!!!!
Unlike my good friend DKC2, I took my time watching this show, because everyone said it was awesome. The first few episodes were okay, but it got better and I fell in love with the show overtime. It is truly an entertaining experience with characters that really pop as well as beautiful animation and great voice acting and music. 10/10
I absolutely love this show! My friend told me about it and man do i have to thank her. At first I was like Me watch my little pony? And then oh that day, oh that magical day I watched the first few episodes and it was amazing! Since i became a brony so late in the show (a canterlot wedding had already came out but not season 3 yet) I watched every single episode from beginning to end! The show revolves a unicorn pony named Twilight Sparkle who loves books and didnt have any friends at the beginning. She was sent to ponyville to live in a library to meet some friends. In the first episode there is an evil alicorn (unicorn/pegasus combined) Who threatens to make the night last forever! Watch the two-parter episode to find out the rest! Each of the friends twilight sparkle makes have unique and engaging personalities! Pinkie Pie: A pony who loves to throw and have epic parties and works at a place called sugarcube corner. Applejack: a hard working farm pony who is strong athletic and honest, yet can be competitive. Rainbow Dash: Fast,tomboyish, athletic, and loyal, she is very competitive. Fluttershy: Cute, Loves animals, and is kind. Fluttershy can get angry at some points like in at the gala. Twilight Sparkle: A nerdy type pony, who is great at the art of magic, twilight tends to get too worked up about the smallest things. Rarity: Fashionable, beautiful, and generous, rarity would make you a dress free of charge, yet she tends to get a little out of hand sometimes and that puts way to much stress on her. Everypony of the main 6 have their strengths, and flauds! Their flauds just write the plot by itself! Great humor, Great Lessons, Great characters, Great voice actors ( such as ashleigh ball and tara strong), GREAT SHOW! Yet it doesnt suit everybodys taste buds and just remember you dont have to watch it if you dont like it, you dont like it! I just highly reccomend you watch this show! Also great lessons to be learned for both children and adults! 10/10 !
This is one of the best cartoons I've ever seen. It may be intended for little girls, but IDC! The characters are good, the plot is good, the characters are also funny, and unfittingly adorable! PLEASE DON'T END THIS SHOW
I am a hardcore Brony. I mostly love this show because of the animation. This is amazing compared to most of the other cartoons we have to watch nowadays. My favorite Character is Rainbow Dash, whom I also have a crush on. I actually love a lot of characters on this show. This list includes Rainbow Dash of course, Fluttershy, Twilight, Rarity, and amongst many other characters. I also find Discord to be a very clever idea for a villian. Every mane character has not only a cutie mark, but also an opinion to what I think they are. Rainbow Dash = Hero, Fluttershy = Cute, Twilight = Smart, Rarity = Sexy, Pinkie Pie = Amusing, and Applejack = Friendly. I am not really a big fan of the Cutie Mark Crusaders but I do however have great opinions for each. The only CMC (acronym for Cutie Mark Crusaders) that I think is absolutely awesome is Apple Bloom. Overall, this show deserves extreme attention. This includes the young, the bronies, and any other living human on this planet.
MLP is a horrible idea that somehow got pulled of. The characters are actually quite good, except the incredibly irritating Pinkie Pie, and the animation is absolutely gorgeous. The plots, however, are tooth-decayingly sweet, living up to the phrase "friendship is magic" and its status as a show directed at girls.
The show is not just for little girls, it can be good for lots of people even guys like myself. I thought the first time i saw this show it would stink just because of the theme song and the toys but it turned out well for me and i thought it was pretty good. I think the show's art is quite amazing too and that it has good voice actors. I used to not like stuff like this but now i kinda do. Lauren Faust, a person who helped create this show, said that this show is a FAMILY show which includes both genders of any age
I really do like this show (if you havent seen my name) its good. btw i am a girl not a boy!
anyways im 14 and its alright but the thing im not a fan of is the cheesy songs.
For example the theme song, its like "Friendship is magic!" that theme song makes it more for little kids and thats how people sterotypes. The rest of the show is good and funnny.
but sometimes they add songs when its not needed. like the last episode they had song after song after song. Kinda silly.
the songs are good but its turning like Disney, i think the whole world will be disney!
Apart from the songs, Lauren Faust designed the show pretty well and with her work on the powerpuff girls i was hoping this show was gonna be great too and it was kind of.
Before you reply, i know when people hear about this show they only talk about the male viewers and completely ignore about the females! We may not have a name for fans, but we still love this show and anyone can watch this. It isn't for a certain audience.
For example Girls plays sports and some boys enjoy MLP. Why cant we live in a world where anyone can like or dislike anything the want without being judge.
I am afraid to admit in school, that I still love Powerpuff girls, because im worried people will call me a baby or stuff like that. I dont want to have that feeling anymore.
This world is sucks with the people in it, STOP THE JUDGING! Just please
