I think the interesting thing about this episode is that making fun of the insane didn't generate a single word of controversy, whereas the butthurt over Dərpy and Molestia was a wonder to behold. Apparently cross-eyed doofuses and femdom nymphomaniacs touch sensitive spots in the 21st-century psyche, and mental illness and psychiatric wards don't.

But you have to be impressed by how clearly an Equestrian psycho-ward doctor can talk with a flashlight in his mouth.

that think started for the people which didnt like dərpy being her name, not soccer moms.

im pretty sure the soccer moms could be just a tool.
some one who hates dərpy name tell to them "look, this pony is retarded an offensive, how can we let girls to watch this" and then they build an army.

and they won that day... that day, the strenght of the men failed.

The Harry Potter books, and after them the movies, followed a kind of life-history trajectory, growing up as the characters and the fans grew older. At the beginning, the stories focused a lot on magical sweets and school sports; but the later books grew progressively darker and more adult, with more complicated language, plots, and emotions, more ambiguities, and a certain admixture of romance and horror. The result was certainly a commercial success.

Is MLP likely to develop in the same way? Would Hasbro let it happen, or encourage it? Has the show moved in that direction? Have the comics pushed it in that direction? Do you want it to become gradually more adult - - and if so, how?

Show me the light of why i should be a Fucking Hasdrone, and lick hasbro's salty balls.

Specially when we can see with stuff like EqG and princesses coming and going, that their interest isnst on being unique and leave a more special step on girls media. But to follow the god damn stereotypes which means, if it isnt about princesses and highschool girls dont give a fuck.

Hasbro's salty balls taste better with butter applied gingerly on the underside of the scrotum. Grease those hairs right up, and let them tickle your tongue. Floss with them too, because salt and butter in between the teeth, while not a great thing health wise, isn't terrible as it keeps the taste around longer.

Wat?! I don't think even pro-Hasbro interests would tell you to abandon all individuality for a corporate interest. Way to overreact.

But, if you are looking for a reason to like Hasbro, they do have a pretty good one: if they had not provided the money to make MLP:FIM, and gave the talent considerable freedom to do it, then there's no way MLP:FIM would be made, nor as good as it turned out to be.

Sure, Equestria Girls was a whole lot of WTF, given that it's clearly inspired by Monster High, but no need to throw the baby out with the bathwater here. I think, as far as Hasbro is concerned, it was an experiment, they didn't cancel MLP:FIM to make that instead.

Recently, CN had one of their shows, "Teen Titans GO!" do an episode that focused on whistling: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=glDiw1zXCkU

Now, let's say MLP:FiM also decided to do an episode that focused on whistling: What do you think such an episode would be like? And, what would you think of the whole idea of such an episode?

Here's an example plot of such an episode I came up with: The episode would focus on The Cutie Mark Crusaders, and we first see them in school with the rest of their classmates practicing a song for the school's chorus class; and the song features a whistling part. As the students are practicing their song, they get to the whistling part and everyone whistles, except for Sweetie Belle. After school, Applebloom and Scootaloo ask Sweetie Belle about it, and she states that she doesn't whistle (and was never shown how to whistle) as her parents and sister Rarity believe it's unladylike. Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon overhear the crusaders conversation and decide to come over to mock Sweetie Belle for not being able to whistle. From there, Sweetie Belle is pressured into learning how to whistle with help from her friends and the Mane 6 (except for Rarity).

So's whistling. Is there some functional reason for the impairment? If not, try adjusting the size of the puckered-up aperture and the fore-and-aft position of the lower jaw until you get a tone. Once you get a single pitch, you alter it by raising and lowering your tongue. The note emitted is the resonant frequency of the space between the tongue and palate.

So whats your thoughts on what this will be?

There doesn't appear to be any information out yet about what it will be about, but given that the characters on the cover are the mane six and not the "Real" power ponies, I wouldn't think that its just an alternate universe story following the real power ponies like the comic we got a while back was, or the daring do books.

Think it'll just be a written rendition of the power ponies comic?

Saying the art quality is "Debatable" is much like saying the jews were "possibly not alive" after entering concentration camps.

But like I said, I can't come down too hard on the book due to it being clearly not intended for me and I recognize that.

We know where real seahorse babies come from: They are a very rare species in which the Daddies (instead of the Mommies) have babies. Of course, real horses and seahorses are 2 totally different species in real life.

But what about in the the world of the My Little Ponies? We've seen "seaponies", but I personally haven't seen how they reproduce.

So what do you think? When it comes to "seaponies", do the Mommies have the babies, or do the Daddies have the babies?

The big trouble I have with fielding an answer to that question is that I'm not entirely sure we've got canonical sea ponies yet. Sure, they've made a showing in books and comics, but they're still up in the air until we see one one the show.

That said, I'm leaning standard mammalian reproduction even if they're half-fish, because it would be easier for the viewers to grok and the rule 34 artists would hurt themselves trying to recreate it.

Going to say, I would be very happy if they handwave away the book and comic seaponies as not being "true" seaponies.

I really like Hippocampi style Seaponies and mermares, and I think the show staff and the comics staff do too: The comic staff have generally tried to do Hippocampi Fish ponies when they could (the original Cover for the pirate arc had Hippocampies before being forced to change it, and Coltlantis was filled with Hippocampi despite it being said to be a kelpy city and the previous kelpy in the comics have fin arms). and the sirens were hooves + tail too.

I'd really like them to be the mermaid style.


Given that they had no trouble doing Normal sea pony "reproduction" (as in sea pony females inserting tubes into normal earth ponies) I don't think they'd have much trouble with mamallian XD

Actually it's because the writers seem confused regarding her purpose in the show, with episodes focusing more on her family than her own individual character.

It's like they can't decide as to whether she's the voice-of-reason role model or as a virtuous but stubborn and prideful mare.

Now that the Ponies have finally appeared in a Super Bowl commercial, you're probably wondering where they could go next.

Well, on a certain post (>>36789130), a poster who calls himself/herself "Unlikeable Pony (element of being banned. again)" mentioned the concept of syndicating MLP:FiM to other TV networks; and I for one think that's a really good idea. I would love to see more people (adults and children) get into MLP:FiM and join in the fun of it.

There are lots of networks where MLP:FiM could possibly be syndicated to, but one place I personally have in mind is a broadcast network such as CBS, ABC, NBC or even PBS. Since the first season is E/I accredited, it can be used to help fulfill a broadcast station's requirements for E/I programming; and if the rest of the seasons could get E/I accredited as well, that would be even better. Not only that, but no one will need to have Premium cable (nor any cable at all of that matter) to watch MLP:FiM on their TV from a broadcast network.

I also have this other idea for if MLP:FiM were to ever be aired on PBS: During any PBS airing of the show, in the breaks normally reserved for commercials, PBS would air a special made insert (similar to the "And Now A Word From Us Kids" segments from Arthur) related to the episode being aired. For example, during one of the breaks of an airing of "MMMystery On The Friendship Express", PBS would air an insert in which Andrea Libman take the viewers on an outing to a bakery and we get to see them preparing fancy cakes (similar to the one in the episode); and during the other break, PBS could air an insert where we would see children either making their own cakes (under adult supervision of course) or just talking about the episode.

Yeah, that seems to be the only insult anyone can ever come up with, is "lolol fat smelly nerds!!!!".

And said stereotype is only applied to people who are obsessed with things that aren't deemed "normal" by society. Do you ever see people pointing and laughing at overzealous Football fans? Or car enthusiasts? Of course not, those are "normal" obsessions.

But if you're a big fan of a TV show, "LOL GET A LIFE YOU FAT NERD LOL".

I'm certain you'll remember "Uncle Albert" from "Mary Poppins"; whenever he started laughing and couldn't stop, he'd float into the air and couldn't get down: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_SlRjubTyEQ

Now, do you think such a condition could exist among Equestria's pegasi, wherein a certain pegasus would fly in the air and couldn't get down while he/she were laughing uncontrollably?
