The other day on an interview with Larson.

They mentioned how he wroth half a song on winter wrap up.
He laugh and said "oh yea, that terrible song"

Which part are they talking about exactly?

Which is the Half-song of the episode?

And after that she would look for more outlets, like become a movie star in B-Movies, get one A-List-Like appearance only to win a Razzie Award, get booed off stage, appear in some Z-List movies, SyFy channel regular, back to modelling but no where near the former success rate, look for a more adult approach, do PlayColt Magazine for several issue, minor success, become a porn star for further adult reaches, get knocked up on a really shady production, get addicted to cocaine, mis-carry, decry life, one last gig in a movie that's actually really good, enjoys a bit of fame, and then she commits suicide. A full circle, so to speak.

Of course, the episode didn't go that way, but the show isn't ready for an Epic yet, anyways.

So it seems that Poni has fallen pretty flat in Japan: no kiddie-culture traction, only a few hundred adult fans, and Season 3 cancelled- -

  A couple of days ago, the list of candidate's for this year's "Kids Choice Awards" was released (http://www.eonline.com/news/627610/2015-nickelodeon-s-kids-choice-awards-honor-nick-jonas-meryl-streep-see-the-complete-list-of-nominees); and guess what: Even after MLP:FiM made it onto a super bowl commercial, Nickelodeon has still not listed the show as a nominee. What's more is that this year, Nick apparently increased the number of nominees for each category from 4 to 6; so there could have been room to include MLP:FiM.

While Im not certain if the votes are rigged or not, even if they are, I still think MLP:FiM deserves to be a KCA nominee after everything it has accomplished.

Perhaps we should all petition Nickelodeon to include MLP:FiM as a nominee next year.

It's the Nickeloden kids' choice award. They primarily only promote things by themselves or other Turner Broadcasting affiliates. Why else would Spongebob Squarepants have won best cartoon for over a decade?

Dərp. I was remembering a Harvey Birdman skit where they joke about how Turner owns everything, but I forgot that Harvey Birdman was on Adult Swim which is on Cartoon Network. I have no idea how I made the mistake of thinking it was on Nick, as Night at Night never aired anything close to Adult Swim's lunacy. But it's probably because I hardly ever watch TV these days. The Internet is generally superior.

I've usually only seen two variations of an English dub. Either they make a completely new opening, or they follow the Japanese's version including changing the opening when they changed it. I have not seen before a dub that used the Japanese opening and stuck to the same Japanese opening.

Hi everypony.

A while ago, several pony websites reported that season 5 was delayed to fall 2016. (http://www.horse-news.net/2014/12/season-5-delayed-until-2016.html)

And now, we got this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HCob40t8dtE) saying it's "coming spring 2015"

Sooooo ... Was the whole "power outage" thing just a joke after all ?

So hasbro like to place sunset shimmer on alot of their not EG related lines.

to be the reminder of the movies.

So you think she will be pushed more and more?
to a point where she will be back to equestira?
at least for a visit?

She is practicaly an extra protagonist for what hasbro concern.

  If you born in the early to mid 1980's (or earlier), you might remember an animatronic band called "The Rock-afire Explosion". Even after what is known as "Concept Unification", the band's creator, Aaron Fechter has been keeping the band alive and thriving.

"The Rock-afire Explosion" has been covering a lot of different songs of today; but how would you like Aaron Fechter to have his band cover some MLP:FiM songs?

I can already imagine "The Rock-afire Explosion" covering "Find the Music in you", with Fatz the Gorilla singing Big Mac's parts.

I'd actually wager they probably are, since alot of their tech seems to run off of unicorn magic, like all of flim and flam's machines, or how tank's helicopter seems to have a magical glow about it.


For all we know there's a pony who's cutie mark is "make video games" and he comes by and charges them everyday with his magic, and they can't be mass produced due to this.

Why not? In general, the show runs on the rule of funny, they include electronic-looking devices just because they want to. Seismic readers. Cameras. Movie projectors. Gigantic pet hair driers. We've even seen hydro-electric dams (MMDW). However, Mama Faust always said that she envisions that, if it's an electric-looking device, it probably actually runs on magic in Equestria.

Of course, it could be that they're capable of mastering both technologies to some degree. If that's the case, if you had the technology to make an electronic arcade game or a magical arcade game, which would you prefer?

What if they could do both?

I remember a certain episode of the Fairly Odd Parents where Cosmo and Wanda combined their magic and electricity to make Timmy a Powerful video game.

Well, what if MLP:FiM also did their own version of "I will survive"? How do you think the lyrics would go?

  We've adequate evidence to establish that Daniel Ingram could undoubtedly make it work if he wanted to.

Will MLP be the Girl version of transformers?

that franchise to exploit on a big scale?

sure you could say hasbro always did ponies, but now it will bring alot of money to them.

so in the future grown up girls complain how the new incarnations are bastardation of her childhood ponies.

back in the 80s GI Joe WAS big, bigger than transformers even I'd say.
its just GI joe hasn't been handled nearly as well by hasbro in updating it.


The only real Reason Transformers has done as well as it has is due to things like Beast wars and the Live action movies keeping momentum for it.

I guess for the sake of the effect of the toy transforming into a gun, both the Rainbow Dash toy and the gun had to be CG until they had a scene cut and could swap in a real gun for the actor to hold.

To be fair I don't think MLP is the show to force in sexuality issues and the likes.

It doesn't have the depth Korra has to get away with it.
