Producer Lauren Faust developed this series with the goal of creating a more sophisticated version of the My Little Pony franchise with more realistic and proactive characters than the usual sexist stereotypes she saw in earlier incarnations. For instance, the insistence on the part of Hasbro executives that clothes and fashion be a part of the characters' interest was addressed by making Rarity obsessed with fashion in the context of being a professional artist and a small business owner with clothes as her preferred medium.

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 »
When I first heard about this show I didn't know what to think. A couple of my college friends told me about it and suggested I should watch it. I couldn't believe it myself that they even watched it and enjoyed it, until I finally decided to watch the first episode.
Yes, the target audience is mainly young pre-schoolers and little girls, but as a 22 year old I got hooked. It has the same feeling as a 90's Saturday morning cartoon and is definitely unique. Being that the first episode is part 1 of a 2 part special, I had to watch the second episode.
So, before you go and assume it's just another kids show, you should know that people of all ages watch this. My 6 year old cousin didn't seem to understand that and she made fun of me, but I didn't care.
Great morals, well developed characters, great stories, and creatively well drawn. This is a cartoon not to miss.
