And then this happened…

So… yeah… awkward… Anyways, I got lured in by the hype (and if you’ve gone on any forum in the last few months, you’ve seen all the people posting stuff about this). Gotta say, it’s disturbingly not bad. I wont get into the debate cause there’s enough pros discussions out there to make your head spin, but lets just say, anything Lauren Faust touches turns to pure gold! Fun for all peoples! (She’s the lady behind Powerpuff Girls and Fosters, so it’s that sort of thing) Good stuff.

But yeah, I couldn’t help but notice the connection between this character and the Celestial Steed. So there ya go. Can’t be unseen. >)

This brings up an interesting discussion though… no no, not the “can boys watch girl cartoons” cause I swear if Lauren Faust produced a Barbie cartoon, everybody would still go watch it. What I mean is the whole “is it ok for adults to like cartoons”. Oddly enough I ran into this even before High School. Of course, I still loved cartoons, but I noticed some of the other kids shunned those that liked them. Like, it’s too childish. I know it’s a bit of a bad sampling, being on a comics site and all, but what are your thoughts? I for one think any age can get something out of the toons, especially seeing them now as an adult, there’s a lot of innuendo in there!

This question is one for someone that I bet DOESN'T know about The Nostalgia Critic, however, his opinions are only on stuff from the 80s and 90s maximum dateline, stuff relating to the turn of the century only involves remakes of movies/shows he saw while growing up or have seen in theaters already or beforehand. Can't say much about it myself, but he sounds strangely like I would critique stuff as.

Cartoons are un-outgrowable. Cartoons are fun, and everyone of any age likes to have fun. Plus, they're mindless, but in a good way. No real drama, no real pain, no real suspense. Sure, these are aspects of some great movies and shows, but if I want to just relax and enjoy some tv, I don't feel like really paying attention to the emotional turmoil so many shows try to create.

Kid shows and cartoons are way better than half the "grown up" crap they have on tv. Give me Gargoyles over Desperate Housewives any day.

This amuses me greatly. XD My Belf hunter would TOTALLY ride a Celestia mount. That aside, I honestly think there's absolutely nothing wrong with adults watching cartoons. For one thing, you're only as old at heart as you choose to be. For another, I often find myself feeling jaded and hateful towards the world and most people in it with the state of society and watching something sweet and simple like MLP: FIM is kind of a breath of fresh air. It's nice to just watch something sweet and funny. It's also kind of nostalgic since I remember watching the original MLP cartoons. I'm 25 and I don't see myself refraining from watching cartoons any time in this lifetime. It's fun, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with having fun. If you're too old to have fun then you may as well crawl into your grave now since what could life possibly have to offer you. Everyone's different of course and what people find fun varies, so I say if someone just doesn't enjoy cartoons it's fine, but they shouldn't look down on those of us who do.

actually, one of the more fun things I've found is the reimagining of the Looney Tunes! brings back a lot of good memories, though I miss how they used to have a lot of classical music... ah well. also... why is Bugs purple/lavender now?

You are so right, mate, so right. I reckon that "Friendship is magic" comes true - beacuse its so scarce among people. And I feel really refreshed when I see MPL:FIM where behaviour is SO simple, but unbelievably efficient! Makes me sad that major ppl dont behave friendly - it would make world a better place

it's crazy how the creative influence of one person can drive an entire show to greatness!

though I hope season 2 is as good, since she's stepping down from an exec roll for some reason.

It only takes a moment to look back and see that "Cartoons/animations" have always been for all ages-- especially for the young at heart.

[This requires Knowing the Yatterman Anime. Here's the wikipedia article: [link] and Here's a website that will let you watch it: [link] . Search ヤッターマン there.]

Gan Takada (Also known as Yatterman #1) has signed a deal with hasbro to distribute their toys in japan. But in the latest fight against the Dorombō Gang, he might have gotten a little too carried away with the deal. One of the series of weekly robots are the "My Little Surprise Attack" robots. Take a wild guess of what they're based off of.

Ai Kaminari (Also known as Yatterman #2) : "Oy vey! Gan, Why did you have to shamelessly advertise those toys? And don't mention that Anime!"

Gan Takada (Yatterman #1): *Waits a few moments. Ai was getting fed up with him.* "あなたが言及していないと述べた"友情はマジックです!" (Translation: "You said not to mention "Friendship is Magic!")

*In the background, a Giant black furred Alicorn (Same size as Yatterwan) Destroyed the Dorombō Gang's Latest mecha.*

With that kind of look I don't think she'll bother with the moon and just take the direct approach somehow... She might be nice though, he seems to be a fan after all. XD
Careful with those MLP mounts though. ;) some have attitudes and might not mind getting even somehow...
