After learning that her friends, as well as herself, are the magical Elements of Harmony, studious unicorn Twilight Sparkle is sent by her mentor, Princess Celestia, to Ponyville to study the magic of friendship with help from her friends.
Via a magic mirror, Twilight Sparkle travels into an alternate universe in order to recover a crown that was stolen from the Crystal Empire. Upon her arrival she is horrified to learn that she has turned into a human.
After a dark force conquers Canterlot, the Mane 6 embark on an unforgettable journey beyond Equestria where they meet new friends and exciting challenges on a quest to use the magic of friendship to save their homeland.

Almost all of the main voice actors have worked on previous versions of My Little Pony. See more »
Due to an animation error, a background pony was cross eyed in one particular episode and was noticed by the fan base. Writers of the show owned up to the error and instead of correcting it, added a new character based on the error, and hence Derpy Hooves pony was added to the cast! See more »
This is a series that has gained quite a cult on the internet. There are even grown men who are fans: male fans who often call themselves 'Bronies'.
What's all the hype about anyway? This is a series which has been created and developed by Lauren Faust, the wife of Craig McCracken, who is the creator of the Powerpuff Girls and Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends (FHFIF). Faust was involved in the creative direction of both of these shows and the character of 'Frankie' on FHFIF was even based on her. It's a show that has had a good amount of fan input as Faust herself often hangs around on the internet communicating with fans on sites such as Deviant Art, etc.
I'm not going to go too in-depth about the show and i'm not going to talk about the characters as there's lots of information here. The plot itself is nicely written and the characters are all interesting. What sets this aside from other kids shows is that it doesn't speak down to it's audience. It covers issues such as conflict, relationships, jealousy, etc in a very mature and entertaining way.
A minor gripe is the lack of male characters. When males do show up they're always inferior comedy relief.
Overall, this is a very good kids show. It doesn't speak down to it's audience and the characters are much deeper than on most 'shows for girls'. No matter how much the fans compare this to the Powerpuff Girls, the shows haven't got much in common. Aside from featuring strong female characters, my Little Pony has a much more toned down sense of humour, a less mature plot and doesn't feature coarse violence. It's for the young ones. It's still got quite a bit to offer mature cartoon fans and it's strangely entertaining. It's a new guilty pleasure.
Watch it with your children. Maybe you'll like it.
