My Little Pony
We'll Never Be Apart...
Since I was a toddler, I always love fantasy and magical things, from creatures to magical places. Since then, I always love a certain franchise this page is made specifically for, to show how much it made my childhood.
What is My Little Pony?
Personally, this is the weirdest question to hear, since this franchise is much well known to most parts of the world, but I will still create this section for people who don't know what it is:
My Little Pony, or MLP, is a toy and media franchise developed by the American company Hasbro. The first toys were developed by Bonnie Zacherle, Charles Muechinger, and Steve D'Aguanno, and were produced in 1981, originally called My Pretty Pony. They come in many colors and have symbols on their flanks that, in the last few generations, are called "cutie marks".
My Little Pony went from just toys, to having cartoons, games, novels, and comics made for girls and grew in popularity in the US and the UK, though it did went through some controversy back in the day, for odd reasons. One is for being "too girly". Pretty odd of a reason, but OK.
My Little Pony(Generation 3)
I used to have a lot of toys from G3(Generation 3) back in the 2000s. I remember having The Butterfly Island playset when I was maybe 5 or 6 years old. I used to also have certain ponies like Pinkie Pie, Moondancer, Triple Treat, Honolulu, Hidden Treasure(which came with a DVD of " Friends Are Never Far Away" that I loved watching, until my siblings secretly threw it away behind by back T_T), along with other ponies that I'm not remembering right now. To this day, I still have many of the Ponyville miniature playsets that I got back in the 2000s, but they're shoved deep within one of my closets at home. Also to this day, I still want the Teapot Palace playset.
I remember always going on the website and play flash games during those warm, spring/summer afternoons, while also eating a bunch of sweets. Good times. I always played the Sticker Book flash games(Ponyville and Friendship Ball), where you just place them in scenes and print them out.
I did watched A Very Minty Christmas when it came out, but I don't remember it much. I know that my mom rented the DVD from Netflix(some people might forgotten that Netflix was originally a DVD rental service back then), but that's all I know, but I did end up buying the DVD many years later and is still in my DVD collection.
My Little Pony Tales
My Little Pony Tales is an animated series that first aired on August 2nd until December 25th in 1992 on The Disney Channel. It only has a total of 26 episodes.
Although I haven't watched the show when it first aired(because I wasn't born yet), I did watch episodes on Youtube in the 2000s(I think between 2007-09?), and I enjoy them. Even watching them as an adult is fun. My favorite was Bon Bon.
Friendship is Magic
After several months of not being up-to-date with MLP, I decided to go on the website to see what it has been up to while visiting my grandma's house. To my surprise, the whole website changed. I was a little upset to say the least. There's new characters, the art style change(I didn't like it back then), and the games I used to play are gone. What surprised me the most, is that there's a new TV show airing on a channel called The Hub, and I was a bit interested.
During the summer of 2011, I stayed up all night to watch all of season 1, until 8:00 in the morning and then passed out in my bed (lol). I actually enjoyed the season, as there was only one and thought it was over, until they announced a second season and was hyped. During autumn of 2011, I watched the season 2 premiere on my mom's laptop with crappy internet, and it was awesome!
I think the season 2 finale was the most awesome finale for a cartoon about talking colorful horses. The introduction of new characters, the whole wedding theme, and when seeing Queen Chrysalis, she became my favorite villain. It was well written and the songs in this two-parter was amazing. This Day Aria is my personal favorite.
I didn't exactly love season 3, but the finale was alright. Twilight Sparkle became an alicorn and I thought that's the end of the show. To me personally, it would make sense. Then, I was surprised that a season 4 was announced, and to be honest, I didn't like it so much, the finale was the WORST. I thought I was watching a cartoon about talking colorful horses, not Dragon Ball, but whatever. It's better than season 8... yuck.
The Equestria Girls movies are alright. I only like the first two. Rainbow Rocks was really good, and I have the DVD for it, though it did cost a lot of money for some reason. 20 dollars I think? I like the song A Friend For Life from the first movie. Too bad it was only in the credits...
This franchise has stayed with me for the longest, and still is with me today. I may not like the newer generations as much as the older ones, they still have their charm and value. Friendship is Magic is still a show I enjoy(Though I like seasons 1-3 more), and the new G5 movie is a fun watch, but I'll always enjoy G3 and all that's before it. In 2015, I even went online and buy G3 movies that I wanted as a kid. As of now, I have The Runaway Rainbow, A Very Minty Christmas, and A Twinkle Wish Adventure, all of them are their original releases, so they include bonus episodes like Dancing in The Clouds and Friends Are Never Far Away (Unfortunately, the G3.5 movie don't include the webisodes). I watch them on occasion, and they are comfy to watch. I thank the company Hasbro for creating this sweet franchise that people can cherish for many years to come. Thank you for reading my fan page.
