With mlp g3.5 onwards, ponies start having forward-facing eyes, like predators. Will this madness ever undo itself or will we one day have ponies who eat meat? Will they one day look like dogs or has g4 already crossed that line?

I'm sorry, there are no real questions here to begin a discussion, I just wanted to post a funny. If any of the moderators want to remove this post, I respect that. Ciao. :satisfied:

I think I read somewhere that G4.5 crossed it with them looking like cats.

I'll admit they really didn't appeal to me initially, I just found them generally scary and not pony like. Buuuuut somewhere along the line I crossed sides and now find them all kinda cute. And may or may not have been tempted to buy a new 4.5 ;)

Funny fact for the day: meat eaters have the shortest digestive tract, herbivores the longest!

One of our ponies tried meat, spat it out bahahaha. Actually she really tried to bite out at another horse and somehow my partner's daughter was inbetween and still has a lovely scar on her shoulder. (Adult daughter and both ponies in question are hers :( ).

My mom saw my Ponyville pony without her hair on and totally thought it was a little cat :tongue:

That sucks for your partner's daughter. Rough.

The thing you said about trying to feed one of your ponies meat - I forget where, but I read at some point that the line (evolution-wise) between herbivore and omnivore is pretty small. The article was talking about how some cows were trying pieces of meat, some of them even succeeding. This was in the dead of winter, when food sources are scarce.

Rock those 4.5 figure. They need love too. :)

I won’t be collecting any new toyline that doesn’t look more like actual ponies. I think they eat chick in g4... maybe that’s just spike. It’s been sine before the movie that I watched any new stuff.
Yeah, I don't know if it's the same for you, but - with season 5-6 onwards, the stories became a bit too "meh" for me. I haven't watched episodes since around the same time as well.
Let's keep our hopes up for g5. :)

Sure thing!
I don't know the artist but something tells me the person would be super chill about it. The reason I say that is that the sites I go to for art - the pony artists tend to just do it for fun, for the laughs. The person who did this probably sat down for 10-20 min and doodled for fun, not to make a serious commission. But, if you're worried, you can always ask here: Link to tumblr profile
Here ya go. :)

I am super duper in love with that Shady drawing. She is of course my favourite G1 pony but so flipping cute I can hardly stand it. :ponylove:

I have always very much disliked the G3/3.5 animations and style since they were released. Just always felt very “clip art” to me. I know this is an extremely unpopular opinion, but I just don’t like the lacklustre (and cheap) quality of animation G3 got subjected to.

I am 150% a G1 fan through and through but this is the generation I grew up with and have loved for as long as I can remember. They’ve been my only constant in my life - lol that’s so lame.

But I am also an odd-duck who very much likes G4/Reboot and possibly G4.5 weirdos are growing on me. I very much miss my ponies being ponies. Having stables and such. That lore I think is long gone and children’s shows don’t “want” that anymore sadly. Dang nab kids wanting flashy dancy things. I will give G5 a chance see how it goes but if it’s Pony Life, I’m not into it at all.

Are you calling us all losers? HMMM?

Nah, just messin'.
It would be an interesting take to go back to the g1 idea of "this is a toy/show for kids who don't have ponies" - so, they're literally ponies, but they're pastel colored and talk. I guess Mlp Tales set the ground for what seems like an irreversible direction towards more and more human-like ponies.
Which circles back to my point. These ponies look like gosh darn predators. LOOK AT HER.

It's a show about talking colourfull horses what's so bad about them living in houses and not looking just like regular ponies, if it was a show just about ponies doing regular pony stuff I wouldn't have anything to do with it because there are ponies at my house and they're boring, they just wander around, eat, and crap, they do nothing interesting.

Well I don’t know about real ponys not being interesting, I think they’re pretty cool! But I definitely agree that a cartoon about them doesn’t have to be realistic at all :smile:

In g1 they lived in a stable and were really ponies... that could talk, had magic, and fun adventures. I could have done without the humans ( Megan,Molly, and Danny) They had witches and bushwoolies and other creatures. G3 did have terrible animation, but it had some good stories and was mostly all about selling toys. I have no clue what g2 was like....

There was a G2 computer game called Friendship Garden and it was so fun. Going off that, it was pretty much the same as G1. Magic, living in a stable... except you could send your pony to school even though you care for the pony like you would a horse. I don’t think the pony could speak though? Not much of an adventure but at the end the pony would “graduate” from school and run across a rainbow

I was trying stay away from this conversation but I'm ready to start talking about it first off I like friendship is Magic storytelling saying that every pony is not perfect and season 8 was Twilight Sparkle trying to have all the other species get a place in Equestria why does G5 have to be in real world situations I wanted to be in a fantasy world I want to escape from The Real World I don't want ponies playing with tablets phones or have them charged on clouds I wanted to be a fantasy world escape from everything that's what My Little Pony is a magical world that I can escape when I'm feeling sad or alone friendship is Magic lessons were amazing each episode considered the license it wasn't just like make sure you do this it was something that you could learn to do not force you should not force someone to like something yes it is a kid show but who buys the toys who has to also watch the show with their kids the grown-ups not only the collectors Hasbro that there are collectors out there I grew up in the 2000s I had G3 growing up in 2017 I joined The Trading Post I got back to collecting after I got Cadence is that I was obsessed I needed more My Little Pony if it wasn't for friendship is Magic I wouldn't have been back into collecting I started getting so much ponies I now have more than I've ever had I have that for friendship is Magic I had mixed thoughts when they open the school to Friendship after watching the season I actually enjoyed it if you consider My Little Pony and Tails being the 8th season a friendship is Magic they were going to school in My Little Pony tails I've never seen that but I have seen My Little Pony and Friends which I enjoy the cheesiness of it it's a very enjoyable TV show

Please don't lynch me....... But I haven't watched the cartoons at all. Any one them :eek:

I'm thinking it is high time I did watch them lol

But can any cartoons live up to Saturday morning cartoons in the 80's? Simba the white lion, loony toons and astro boy are just a couple I can think of off the top of my head.

I just like looking at cute colourful pony toys hehe I personally would like the toys to go a little bit back towards g1, G2 and g3. Just a little more "pony" in the pony toys would be good.

FIM got me back into collecting because of my E. I enjoyed the episodes being funny plus they did have a lesson somewhere. My favorite is twilight in ‘lesson zero‘.E learned some good general ‘be nice to others, treat others the way you want them to treat you’ and fim definitely helped her see that instead of just seeing and hearing it from me.
another odd thing, since I’m not big on letting the tv teach my kid, she loved ‘ni hao Kai lan’ as a 1-2 year old. Life lessons and learning mandarin via song. I actually bought them on Amazon.

It is totally ok. I strayed from fim and so did my girl when they gave twilight wings. There’s still some good stuff afterwards, but she grew to a place she didn’t want to watch it as much. It was all monster high for a while, until the reboot of that. Anyway... I digress. You don’t need to like or watch the show to love the toys. I had never seen Nickelodeon and I wanted their toys. Lol. Mlp fits right in with those saturday morning cartoons, though.
