Trivia

One regular background character pony with an hourglass cutie mark was noted by fans to have a distinctive resemblance to David Tennant's version of The Doctor of the British TV series, Doctor Who (2005). As such, he has taken on the fan nickname, Doctor Whooves, and is the subject of numerous fan creations, although his official name in the series is Time Turner. However, Hasbro has released an official figure of the character under the name Dr. Whooves with a collar and tie to accentuate the resemblance to the 10th Doctor. In addition, he appears in at least one variant cover of the official My Little Pony comic book with numerous references to the British series. 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 love it!
27 March 2011 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I am not afraid to admit as an 18 year old female that I have a soft spot for My Little Pony, as I do with all my childhood favourites. I watched this show, not expecting much at all, and was really surprised at how much I loved it. When I first heard of My Little Pony:Friendship is Magic, I was a little worried of who it would appeal to, thinking of the conception that it was for little girls and pre-schoolers and little else, but I was wrong. Sure that may be the main target audience, but there may be adults who might admire how much My Little Pony:Friendship is Magic accomplishes.

Several reasons make this show appeal to me. There are the life lessons. This is a very educational show I feel which I think parents will appreciate, and the life and moral lessons are important ones and aren't delivered in an overly-didactic and convoluted fashion. There is the humour. I agree that My Little Pony:Friendship is Magic is very winning in its humour, there are many times where I was amused by the situations and writing. Not all of it is funny though, the show manages to convey some poignancy as well without being too schmaltzy.

There is also the characters. Other than the lessons and the humour, the characters and the way they interact are what make the show work. All the characters are genuinely cute and engaging without leaving a bad taste in the mouth, and they are simple yet interact so well with each other and they also have unique personalities. The story lines are also simple but well paced and quite clever, and the writing is cute, funny and poignant. I also liked the animation, the colours are bright and breezy, the backgrounds are ethereal-looking and the character designs are adorable, and the music is lovely complete with an infectious theme tune.

Overall, a huge surprise and if given a chance without prejudice well worth watching. 10/10 Bethany Cox
