My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

"Get your muzzle out of those books and make some friends!" That's what Princess Celestia tells Twilight Sparkle. She may be the smartest unicorn in Equestria, but Twilight Sparkle gets an "incomplete" in friendship. There's more to life than learning magic, after all -- so she goes to Ponyville on a mission to make friends. There she meets five special ponies who take her on exciting adventures and teach her the most powerful magic of all ... the magic of friendship!

I just love how you can watch this show with your mind turned off. It just makes me feel really happy for a moment in this dark world. All the colors, the songs, their voices, the stories, it's just so, calming.

@oranges It never mattered who said it, even when Aristotle said that the purpose of theatre was (positive) pleasure, that only covers one of the purposes, and not everyone likes it, particularly in its most extreme iterations.

But, again, I say the show has merit - it fills a need and that need happens to be one I need filling myself. ergo, I watch the show.

I like cartoons. Be it silly character humour, a playful romp, a cute song, slap-stick, or even the wryness of the loony toons. American (and the few Canadian I've seen ) cartoons fill a much-needed service of guilt-free pleasure for me.

Again, not saying they do, or even should appeal to all demographics, but I must be in one of them because I love them.

Though I will say that it doesn't seem to me that it would be particularly healthy for an adult to spend too much time watching or thinking about cartoons -- just as life has a balance of good and bad and easy and stressful and a million things so hard to put to words --- it is probably best for people to entertain themselves with an equal mixture.

What we watch, read, et cetera -- it all shapes us in both the short and long terms, to some degree, and if nothing else it reveals something about us. This area is too complex to really make a cogent argument on without actually doing a full research topic on it but it is my feeling that the basic idea there is true - however much more complicated the truth itself is.

But I am getting further and further from the topic, which really boils down to that I like MYLP because it is, in a word, harmless -- and there just aren't enough harmless things in this world for my liking.

@emonquente I'm with you on the epicurean outlook, but the problem is "Just pure, clean, crisp, beautiful loveliness -- in stories, songs and jokes that appeal to all ages/genders/whatever.". I disagree. I watched an episode where they all raced and blew the leaves off deciduous trees and I felt it was not a show that had any inkling of appealing towards adults.

@Artifex Not negative does not mean it was without conflict. the conflicts are just -- well like cartoon versions of everyday problems kids might have. It is a kids' show after-all.

I don't really expect that too many adults should be watching it or anything -- but for those of us who would like some sweetness, something cute and harmless with some catchy songs from time to time -- well, here it is, even if it is just a kids' show.

hey, Doctor Who is for kids too -- doesn't stop all the adults from watching that either.

If you want all that stuff though -- and I can't say I never want it myself of course, well -- there's plenty else out there for you.

@emonquente That doesn't make me wanna watch this show. Sounds kinda boring if everything is always going all right all the time. I do remember watching a videotape of this over and over again when I was 8. In it the ponies where inside a mountain that was alive and started attacking them or something, they ran away and the mountain... got good or died or something, I don't really remember. But I can't say I would still like that tape. I want violence, disaster, chaos. Sweetness and loveliness all the time is just really boring to watch.

@emonquente It has no comments because people on this site consider themselves "above" this kind of thing. They don't give it a fair chance for being as good as it actually is. It's kind of sad, really.

How can this not have comments? Best cartoon ever! It has absolutely ZERO Negativity. No sarcasm, no schadenfreude, no bitterness, and no cynicism! Just pure, clean, crisp, beautiful loveliness -- in stories, songs and jokes that appeal to all ages/genders/whatever.

Plus it has fantastic animation. I mean, -fantastic-.

The characters are you know, characters. This is pretty-pink-fluffy stuff done -right-. It isn't absolutely perfect, but its damned close. I love it, and so does everyone I've ever heard of who has seen it. I have literally never heard a bad word about it from someone who actually sat down to watch a few episodes -- at least not after they did :P.

Watch it, love it, be happy! n.n.
