A new guilty pleasure!
22 May 2011 | by justinreynolds40See all my reviews

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.
