Normally I don't like Ren and Stimpy knockoff animation, but it really is the only appropriate artistic style through which to approach this topic.

I still have my doubts about actual girls liking MLP. The entire fanbase seems to be made of 20 something males.
Monkey Napoleon
It just appears that way because children don't have 20+ years of stubbornly refusing to try and socialize under their belts to need the fetid cesspool that is fandom to communicate with their peers.

Monkey Napoleon
They also haven't yet been psychologically abused by consumerism to the point where they feel the need to define themselves by their horrible tastes in entertainment.

Riskbreaker
I think somebody else here said it very well, the bronie community are just going to sink the show at this rate.

BHWW
There are grown-up fans, (nominal) adults who seriously argue that the makers of MLP should be pandering to them and ignoring any other demographics, like little girls.

Cena_mark
Just wondering, what makes you think the fandom will destroy the show? My only concern comes with the appearance of Derpy, as It shows that the producers are aware that grown men watch it. I'm concerned that a self aware crew could result in the show losing its original charm.

Fans killing their own show by being too obsessively creepy is not unknown.

SolRo
Well the younger fanbase is highly suceptible to peer-presure, and i'm pretty sure young girls wouldn't think it's cool that old creepy guys like their show/toys. So the majority market could be driven away by a perverted minority that gets a lot of media exposure.

Xenocide
Hasbro is a toy company. Toy companies are fucking obsessed with demographic targeting. If this show weren't getting through to little girls, it wouldn't have lasted this long on the air.

Also, the idea that the fanbase is going to "sink" the show is just another example of dorks on the internet overestimating their own importance. Fandoms don't sink shows, creators do. Just ask the Star Wars fanbase.

1 starred for being just another generic nerd-bashing cartoon with nothing new to say.

When was the last time you saw an eight year old play with a Darth Maul action figure? Those toys aren't even available to children.

SolRo
because star wars is completely ruined, no one buys their stuff or watches their movies?

xeno, your argument is just dumb.


Xenocide
Um, that wasn't my argument at all.

My argument is that the internet needs to get over itself and stop thinking that a bunch of people on a forum talking about a cartoon are going to magically ruin the show with the combined force of their beards. It doesn't work that way.

Gmork
Actually Xeno, it could very well work that way. Youre right hasbro is about marketing, but regardless of whether the show is doing well with younger audiences or not, they are now pristinely aware that they get more attention/ratings when they pander to the bronies. They're probably in love with the idiotic 20-somethings, because they've gotten enough exposure to make normal people curious enough to sit down and watch because they see the bronies and go "Why? What would possibly motivate this?" Hasbro loves bronies. The My Little Pony show probably would have just been another nothing program if it wasn't for them.

Truly reflective of the horror of reality.
Caminante Nocturno
These are fake bronies (faux-nies), who have failed to learn the lessons of the show they so passionately claim to love. They are Princess Celestia's Judas.

You mean Nightmare Moon?

no, this was not up to snuff. Sorry.

Fun fact: the guy who drew this likes to draw misogynist snuff, which is worse than regular snuff because he puts some dumb comment like "HAHA THIS CARTOON BITCH DESERVES IT" on every drawing.

So it's no wonder he's looking for more pathetic nerds to pick on. Too bad it's not working.

I thought this video would feature my favorite chocolatey snack-cake.
