Ponies Then In April 14, 1984 The first my little pony cartoon aired. I was only a baby at the time so I don't remember the beginning. How ever from it's 1984 to 1987 run I did watch it. I didn't get into MLP until the run of My little pony tales which aired from 1992 â€“ 1992, Ya it didn't last for very long. I loved the two series but after all it was made to sell toys to girls my age not so much to entertain. Now when I was 2-8 I loved my little pony. I once made a out cry when i could not get a MLP coloring book. Playing with them and roleplaying your own adventure was fun. However I have had my times of pony mishaps such as the time I burned the head of on my pony. I have also decapitated some bonies in my day. Soon I grew out of my pony phase and grew up. I didn't pain much mind to them and I found out about a new fad. Custom Ponies? I found out about a trend were people were repainting and even making major modifications to there my little pony dolls. I was like um ok but really there quite impressive. You should check some of them out some times. Ponies Now: So I found out they were making a new MLP show I was like "psst lets see how bad this one is". I had seen the G3 ponies falying around and even watched one episode out of lolz and I thought MLP could not get worse. I then notice people were talking about this show a lot. After seeing some fan art I watched one episode. Then I watched another after a whole season I was addicted. What is it about the new My little pony that makes even grown men addicted The new MLP has exploded all over the net grow men and women are drawing, talking about and posting them every were! It has even spawned the term brony to describe a male who like MLP. The show is self is pretty good. It's not as shallow as it's older counter parts. The show like most shows or kids have a moral end the end. The show focuses on a unicorn named Twilight Sparkle who was sent to ponyville to learn about friendship. Oddly enough the show is pretty damn entertaining. It's also quirky and the characters have personalities and even character flaws. Like I said it's not your normal MLP cartoon. Take the last episode that had a cute small pony snap a bears neck! Share your opinions on all MLP related matters. From G1 to your own little toy mishaps. I want to know what you think of this crazy money fad. Do you think this fad is silly? Did you love the toys? Do you hate the new series? I can not believe there was not a thread about this already.
