Oh sure, I see how it is, you don't answer my questions but when it comes time for deep introspection, everybody knows I'm the go-to-guy.
Actually, I think it's pretty simple (insofar as dealing with a crippling amount of the-devil-is-in-the-details can be). Whether it be books, movies, computer games, cartoons, there's a difference between a something that's created simply to check off a number of items that a focus group wants versus a show that genuinely resounds with its creators as something they wanted to make, and wanted to make good.
MLP:FIM was smart, funny, and cute as a button. Somehow, the focus group aspects, if they were there, did not get in the way. It was created by some extremely talented people, yourself, Renzetti, and so on. In the end, what was not to like? More shows need to dare to be good first, anything else comes second, like MLP:FIM did.
Welp, off to bed with me. Thanks for visiting!
