Anyone here watch My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic?

No, not trying to post a meme to rile up anyone here (so, hence, no pictures), but I am wondering if anyone here watches the show?

At any rate, there's going to be a new episode tomorrow, concerning Applebloom, on the Hub.

I was gonna say too young to be on the forums, but then I looked at the vocabulary and grammar usage in the OP... that's when I got confused, your honor.

Reminds me of Butters complaining that he'd rather be playing Hello Kitty: Island Adventure instead of World of Warcraft on South Park.

Eh. I'm 30 and just watched "Tangled"' a few days ago. I think if something is produced well and genuinely entertaining, one shouldn't rule it out.

Just think of how many people out there would critique us for joining and participating in a tech forum devoted to computers, mobile processors, coding, and tablet specs, and be quick to call us nerds or geeks.

Different strokes for different folks.

Oh no, please don't let this turn into a Brony thread. Freakin' Bronies are all over Reddit and Fark already.

Self proclaimed geek right here. Back to the op. Really why do you watch my little pony?

While I do like to watch cartoons with my son, My Little Pony is not one of them.

Amusing thread.

I have to admit, I'll sit and watch The Backyardigans with my grandkids. But it's one of those shows that has goofy jokes for adults that go over the heads of the kids.

I have two 6 year old girls and we don't watch that show. A 20 something watching a pony cartoon - that's really makes you wonder

I guess it appeals to people who are big fans of 1990s cartoons. Like me. But, yeah, I can see why many others might not "get" it.

No offense, but My Little Pony is not a cartoon that comes to mind when talking about 1990's cartoons. Hey Arnold, Rugrats, Looney Toons, Doug, etc. Those are cartoons that I remember from the 1990's.

Um...20 years old..."My Little Pony"!!??

Maybe it's time to move up to "Teletubbies".

Can I suggest that you get out a little more. There's a whole world of grown up stuff out there.

Your memory is failing. Pinky and the Brain, Freakazoid, and Animaniacs were great!

Friendship is Magic is one of the newer cartoons. It's not as super-saccharine as the old ones. If you liked those character-driven cartoons you just mentioned, MLP: FiM is a great cartoon to watch.

If you are not a fan of cartoons at all, I'd would pass up on MLP: FiM. It's really for cartoon enthusiasts only.

It also drives in the Western Stereotype that Animation is immature and never can be a legitimate storytelling medium.
