I've recently given into the madness and watched all of the new My Little Pony episodes. I've made no secret that I like children's cartoons and even though this one is like an overload of pink sparkly rainbow cute, I like it. Okay, maybe I like it because of the pink sparkle rainbow cute. Twilight Sparkle is my favorite.

It's a lot more entertaining than almost everything on Disney Channel, at least. Had me laughing out loud a lot and the cultural references scattered around and wtf silliness of it remind me of Cartoon Network's stuff (Billy & Mandy, Flapjack, etc). Even if each episode ends with a big ol' "moral of the story" wrap up. There's an episode based on the tribble ep of Star Trek, and another on the Greek myth of Icarus! And songs that get stuck in your head for days and days! And they have a city called Fillydelphia how cute is that.

Also, this:


In short, haters to the left.

You might enjoy this. PONY FAN WANK!

Evidently the Power of Friendship, Magic, and Ponies almost managed to shut down 4chan. It also caused "problems" over at SomethingAwful.com. That's a pretty impressive feat. :D

Yesss, I skimmed that a few weeks ago and it was part of what convinced me to start watching. The show is a ton of fun on its own, but it's icing on the cake that colorful ponies nearly took down these hives of internet trolls. :D

I haven't watched them all yet (I've been saving them to watch while I do data entry at work *shifty eyes*), but oh man. It pushes so many of my happy buttons. Rainbow Dash is just pure joy, design-wise, and as far as fave characters it's a tie between ALL OF THEM her, Applejack, and Fluttershy.

And while the episode as a whole made me go "wth, MLP, this is how you're going to handle the racism morality?!", I could watch this particular moment on loop forever, it's so perfect:

I laughed so hard when Fluttershy first talked in that episode XD It's hard to pick a favorite because they're all so awesome; I really like that all the main ponies have their own distinct looks and characteristics, which is something I don't remember the old version having.

And I can think of nothing better to make data entry tolerable. :)

I love that show. It manages to cuter than the old one and whole worlds funnier.

I only remember bits of the old show but I was really surprised and pleased at how funny this one is! It's very cute without being simpering.

Pinkie Pie Joker is too awesome. She even has a song that's pretty much "Why are you taking this so seriously?"
