Trivia

Princess Luna's name was originally going to be Selena (presumably after the Greek Goddess of the moon, of which Luna is the Roman equivalent). Although her name was changed to legal reasons, she is still referred to as Princess Selena in a novelization of the first episodes. See more »

Goofs

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 »

I used to wonder what friendship could be, until Lauren Faust shared its magic with me.
6 January 2012 | by kyza93See all my reviews

I don't think I can really say anything new that hasn't been said already. The animation is bright and colorful; almost like drugs for your eyes. Though there are a few animation errors now and then, that's perfectly fine since the fan-base has gotten some enjoyment out of them (the background character "Derpy Hooves" is an example).

The voice actors are very well seasoned and are simply perfect for their roles. Mrs. Faust does an excellent job creating characters as compared to the ponies with generally flat personalities in the previous generations of ponies. The show teaches us life lessons that even adults can apply to everyday life.

It's good to see something created for girls that's actually enjoyable and not just an exaggerated 20 minute commercial for a toy line. Lauren Faust was just what the franchise needed: somebody who's had years of experience working with amazing cartoons such as "The Power Puff Girls" and "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends"; there was no way SHE could screw this show up.

Overall great show. The stories are enjoyable, characters are entertaining and intriguing, and it has attracted a vast audience: from girls to boys, and from kids to adults. Even grown men watch this show, and that is awesome (I am one of those men, I've seen every episode thus far).

That's one thing I have to mention about this show: the fans. It is one of the greatest fan-bases ever, and I don't think I have ever been more proud to be a fan of anything else. This show really brings out the best in people: the majority of the fans have taken the life lessons learned in this show and applied it to their lives, making them very loving and understanding individuals. This one 19 year old man posted on Reddit that his mom threatened to kick him out of the house since she found out he watched the show. All of the "Bronies" (as we call ourselves, female fans are sometimes called "Pegasisters") who replied to his post were very supportive of him, and one guy even offered to let him stay at his house for as long as he needed. I cannot think of an instance in any other fandom where everybody is THIS nice to each other.

Not only are they very kind and accepting, there are very many talented individuals among them. There are many great original songs about the show and remixes and covers of songs from the show. Not to mention countless phenomenal fan-art in many art mediums: drawings, custom-made pony figures, plushies, and others.

Normally, I'd give this show an 8.5, but seeing as how this show broke down, or at least took a large chunk out of, the wall separating what's acceptable "for boys" and "for girls" to like, and also what is acceptable for adults aged 18 and older to like, and how wonderful, friendly, and talented its fan-base is, I simply cannot give it less than a 10. I hope this show gets accepted for even more seasons, 2 is simply not enough. If JERSEY SHORE can get FIVE seasons on air... there may be hope yet for this fantastic cartoon that has touched the lives of many.
