Why is My Little Pony So Popular???

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 2, 2011, 1:12 PM
  • Mood: Stumped
Lately I've been seeing a lot of My Little Ponies on dA. And not just on dA, plenty of other sites. But can anyone tell me why my little pony is so popular over the past few months or so? I mean, I'm really not into My Little Pony. I think it's a little girl thing and should be. Because I see like, 40 year old men playing with my little pony figures. So PLEASE tell me what's goin on with the popularity of My Little Pony!!!

Look at who made the show and the voice actors: [link]
Tell me that is not a perfect storm for cartoon fanatics.

Well, I guess... but just because they're famous voice actors doesn't mean I'm gonna become some MLP addict.

The show has nerd cred, Laren Faust the show developer has major nerd cred and she made the show she wanted when she was a little girl. As a result the show is funnier, smarter, cooler than any "girl's show" has ever been. it isn't overtly saccharine, the life lessons don't feel forced, and the main cast has depth. My Little Pony Friendship is magic is a perfect storm, comedic, sweet, honest, and self aware.

As to psycho fans, umm they aren't unique to the Bronies, they have and will always exist.

I have friends who have like, inside jokes about it and whenever I say, "I don't get it" they flip a table.

I don't want to watch it but they keep telling me to! D: I don't want to get addicted to it, I have other shows to love. XD

Same here! I have to many shows to be obsessed with and I do NOT want to add MLP to that list.
