My Little Pony is Overrated by ssbmelee My Little Pony is Overrated by ssbmelee

EDIT (6/7/11): If you're going to disagree with me in a disrespectful manner but demand that I respect your opinion, and then accuse me of "libel" because of my opinion on a cartoon, you're an idiot. No, I'm not being a heartless bitch, I'm introducing you to the real world. People are not going to candy coat everything they say. And trust me, people can say much worse things than what I said.

EDIT 2 (6/21/11): Thanks to all who left me good comments. And thank you to all who have faved this/added it to their collections. I am sorry that I no longer have the time to thank you personally.

EDIT 3 (7/10/11): OK, I redid the description completely. Now it sounds better.

EDIT 4 (7/17/11): INB4 "everything's overrated". I didn't know how else to express my opinion. There you go. Also, in my opinion, not everything is overrated. Let me give you an example: Have YOU ever heard of a band called What Is This? Yeah, didn't think so.


My first stamp that I've uploaded. I know that it could look better, but I just wanted to get my point across soon. I didn't see any stamps that were like this, so I made it.

First of all, I want to say this, because I know that there are going to be people who jump to conclusions: I DO NOT HATE MY LITTLE PONY. I don't mind the show at all. Although I watched some episodes of it on YouTube and thought that it was nothing to get so hyped up about, I don't hate it. It's a good show for kids. Hell, even I used to be a MLP fan back in the 80's and early 90's when they had the first generation. Perfectly understandable, as I was a Pre-K/kindergarten age girl.

No. That's not what irks me.
It's the fandom, the fantards and the over obsessed 'bronies' that really rub me wrong.

All these memes that surround the show... like calling Princess Celestia "Trollestia", and quoting it all the time as if the show was a Newgrounds Flash movie and only served a purpose for the lulz. No. Just, no. I feel really sorry for the regular fans of the show that have to be placed in the same generalized group as those people.

Does everything have to be a pony? Seriously? First it was wolves, now it's ponies. EVERYTHING has been drawn a pony. There's Team Fortress, Left 4 Dead, even Grand Theft Auto ponies...and more. Even real people have been drawn as ponies. Enough is freaking enough. Another thing; do you really think that combining a children show with a M (17+) rated game is a good idea? That's like making Barney the Dinosaur the protagonist of a Saw movie.

And the FUCKING RULE 34. Seriously, I haven't seen a show with worse Rule 34 than this (except Pokemon). And Rainbow Dash isn't a lesbian; sorry to break it to you. I don't think Lauren Faust would do that intentionally. C'mon people, this is a kids' show! Grow up.

The show was made for kids to enjoy. Not for memes, and not for people to make porn of.

This show is attracting males 18 and over. I really have no problem with this in general. I'm glad they realize they have the freedom to like what they want. Not to mention that I still enjoy many cartoons (some MLP included), early Pokemon, early Digimon, etc. But when they start infecting kids with the adult images every time the kids try to look up something as simple as "my little pony", we've got problems.
That doesn't mean I would reccomend this show for anyone who isn't a girl under 12. Face it, MLP is very girly and is meant for that age group. To be honest, I think a lot - not all, mind you - of fans of this show are only interested because it's an internet meme. A very unfunny, overused one at that.
By the way, please try not to spam my inbox with comments like "PEOPLE CAN LIKE WHATEVER THEY WANT". I already know that, and I'm not saying that they can't. I don't need 20,000 people telling me this.

I'd like to also point out that many bronies hate the past generations. Not just dislike them, but they say things like "BURN GENERATION X", etc. Well, I've got news for you bronies. If it weren't for the older generations, your precious Friendship is Magic wouldn't exist.

Agree with my opinion? Feel free to use, fav, or comment how you like.
Disagree with my opinion? That's fine. I don't mind disagreement as long as you're mature about it.

A bit off topic: As a kid, my friends and I also enjoyed Littlest Pet Shop toys and cartoon. I hear that the same channel who makes MLP FIM is making a LPS cartoon. If THAT ever turns into a meme...DEARGODWHY.

If you have any suggestions for other stamps, I'd be happy to take them into consideration.

Well, first of all, I am very sorry to hear that you received some disrespectful opinion , some of us can be very defensive-if no offensive-when they heard someone giving a negative opinion about the show or the community. I always liked to hear different opinion and to express my own opinion at the same time, but always in a peaceful and friendly-if no calm- way,both in real word and online- that's what we call a debate, only think, how boring will this world be if everyone agree with each other, just no.
So, I will be honest here, I really enjoy MLP,and the community itself,not because the memes,but because the fanart, the music or even the fanfiction. And most importantly, I really think- and hope that it isn't only my own Prejudice - that most  of the bronies aren't so bad, rather they can even be very friendly and even kind, yes , some of the bronies are  very offensive, but not every fandom will look distateful to the majority  at  first  ,no ? Only watch the earliest opinion about the brony fandom, many opinions point that the fandom looked or is gay-which I could swear:no.
As you said , MLP is a kid show, and doesn't even tried to appeal to adults or teenagers as many other show I could mention, is friendly, simple and honest-some could say chessy , I wouldn't feel like that-but that is why I love it! That is why most of the bronies love it, there isn't overreaction here, is just a love that maybe some people can't understand-but is true. MLP is my favorite show because its characters interested me ( "but they are stereotypical" well in fact I don't love something because it is new but because it appeals to me) but at the same time it keeps the innocence . there are very less cartoon today that make me feel a honest love, only something like MLP, innocent and interesting( "well, in fact as a adult I really don't think it should be interesting for any adult audiences" someone would say. but to be honest , I'm forever a kid ! x3)could do that. I had watch a likely amount of cartoons -some very similar , for example "doraemon", "tinkerbell" or as you mentioned "littest pet shop"  yes , and MLP is the only one( for whatever reason) that kept me watching not because my interest  for the plot but because my love for the characters.
And that gave me inspiration
(I would love to discuss the "adult materials "thing but now I just don't have enough time, to kept in short, I just hope that the brony community could be more acceptable in future times, and I agree, to reach that goal, we bronies need to improve many things)

I love mlp. I respect your opinion. And you are awesome and brave for standing up for what you believe in! I must now clap, fearless warrior, for you deserve better than hate for just an opinion like this. :clap:

honestly I'm not overly fond of the show but I really enjoy th community, though I only pay attention to certain members of it. I really enjoy watching reviews of the episodes.

There's alot of really cool stuff that come from it. I greatly enjoy the song lullaby for a princess.…

I like MLP but I agree, I really have no idea how a show like MLP can get such a massive fanbase while some other good shows get hardly any attention at all.
Killuanatsume Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2014
Well, I like this show really actually I am fan but I still have seen better show. Or animes for that matter. And the fact that everything is turning to pony is a bit too much but it's still a show that can get a great laugh. Anyway, I respect your opinion, and sorry if I didn't have much of intelligent things to say.

I agree. I love the show and the fandom entertains me to no end...but I have no clue how it became this popular.
BrendanTheHedgewolf Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Agreed! I can see why people enjoy it as I've taken a look at it myself, I can't stand the fandom for a number of reasons!
