I mean either that or quesadillas are too damn hot for her to handle. Cheese is especially hot!

Speaking of which, gotta love when certain facial expressions end up as instant memes!



You could take over Equestrian by just bringing a couple ladybugs or quesadillas. The other princess won’t stop you and Twilight will be immobilized by the cheesiness.

Look everyone, I did not forget about the “ladybugs awake” song. We were just trying to have a little fun! Also, pretty sure even people who aren’t into spiders have sung “the itsy bitsy spider”. Lighten up! 😂🐞

And yes, we did consider quesadillas first. Call backs are always fun, but sometimes ultimately don't work.
8:09 PM - 19 Feb 2019
I like to think Twilight views the dance as a way to ward off ladybugs. "Clap your hooves and do a little shake" to prevent the ladybugs from awakening.

However, that doesn't address this BLASPHEMOUS CONTRADICTION with "It Ain't Easy Being Breezies". I'm glad the entire show crew was fired for this.


I love this GIF.


Cute.


WebM video, Twilight sending her fears into the stratosphere.

Now for fanworks, Twilight reacts to a G3 ladybug play in a WebM video.

I'm glad people are making the Miraculous connection.

Speaking of Twilight, her Kotobukiya statue is up for preorder now, releasing in September.


I wasn't big on the pony part from the concept art, but I think this is a good angle for her. The human part is very detailed and looks great, of course. And the hair is fantastic for both.

Countdown to G4 thread

A 4chan thread had a pretty good overview of news and reactions in the lead up to G4, from 2009 to 2010's premiere of the first episode. I just copied the relevant posts in this Google Drive page, which is completely worksafe, though it does have 4chan links. Note that the My Little Pony News site doesn't work. Now if you're left wanting more after the episode one reactions linked, here are the episode two and episode three reactions.

Here's the chat discussion we had about it, which eventually shifts to the Disney cartoon Bonkers.
Someone on 4chan went through the effort of tracking down articles and reactions in the leadup to MLP:FiM (2009-10), and it's an interesting thread. Remember, it is 4chan, though (link removed)



Huh, prototype Celestia toys were white



The ones that went on sale were pink


GallusYesterday at 9:42 PM


They initially thought that Pinkie would be enough pink for everyone



They were wrong


SigmasonicXYesterday at 9:44 PM


Don't let Pinkie get in the hot tub with you.

TrigonometrizeYesterday at 10:00 PM


They keep calling it "MLP meets anime" lol



How can it be anime if Sylvee likes it


ScizYesterday at 10:08 PM


They're kind of cute, cuter than the G3.5 ponies, but that's just waaaaay too much change. Hasbro is overdoing it, big time. They just don't get it. That's not even My Little Pony anymore. But the new 'normal' ponies? No. Hasbro's overdoing it, and I don't think they actually understand they're customers. I can't see little girls liking those.



hindsight is 20/20

SigmasonicXYesterday at 10:10 PM


In this thread too, you'll see a lot of "my 4 year old daughter loves MLP, but she doesn't like these new toys at all." http://www.mlptp.net/index.php?thre...nicorn-pony-and-new-animated-character.80199/

Live From the Fair... MLP Fair Pics and Experiences
Hey Guys! I'm here at the fair (well, technically 11 miles away in the La Quinta Inn.) I had a great (albeit tiring) day at the fair! It's so great to meet everyone, and I got some great deals, got my books signed, and overall just had a blast forgetting about work and the e...


You know, one thing from the older MLP fandom I feel was lost in the shuffle was the entire "redecorate a generic pony in an artistic way" thing, like with the blank white pony being painted in the pictures in the OP



Now, ponies are too tied to characters (including OCs) for that to be a big thing



ScizYesterday at 10:37 PM



the full-body paintjobs seem like they'd be hell to animate, more than anything


SigmasonicXYesterday at 10:38 PM


Well yeah, I don't mean for animation, but as an artistic thing


ScizYesterday at 10:38 PM


oh, yeah



a "color your own OC" kit does seem like money left on the table


SigmasonicXYesterday at 10:42 PM


I know it used to be a big thing for the pre-G4 MLP fandom. Plus all those intricate customizations of G1 ponies into pop culture figures and such. Those have largely fallen to the wayside.



But the "color your own pony" sort of thing was always more for the super invested than little girls.


TrigonometrizeYesterday at 10:50 PM


I'd be into this



I'd have Applejack 2.0 ponies, commie ponies, Yuru Yuri ponies


SigmasonicXYesterday at 10:51 PM


But you'd have to actually make them that way

This comes up in previous threads, but I'm surprised to see several posters are so knowledgeable about Vancouver VAs and are fans of particular VAs

Man, for some reason that 4chan thread detailing the lead up to the Hub and FiM gives me a good bit of nostalgia despite not following any of that shit at the time. Maybe I just really miss the Hub. That was a fun little channel.



Also, since it's been brought up, rewatching Season 1 I forgot Applejack was shown to be a bit of a hot head at first, but it was quickly dropped. Guess they thought it made her to similar to Rainbow Dash.


SigmasonicXToday at 9:00 AM


That aspect does return sometimes, particularly with Dash rivalry episodes and Flim/Flam. But I don't think it really led to good stories.


theirongiantToday at 9:09 AM


True, she still shows shades of it sometimes, but it was definitely a bit more prominent early on.



I do prefer the more level headed Applejack. She works well as the team mom.



Back to the Hub appreciation, how many people here got that channel? (and by extension Discovery Family now)


SigmasonicXToday at 9:16 AM


I never had it. Always had to watch it on YouTube/Dailymotion, besides Netflix rewatches.


theirongiantToday at 9:22 AM


I watched it a lot. FiM, Transformers Prime, Dan Vs. and the Haunting Hour were all good. In addition they had Batman Beyond, Animaniacs, 60's Batman and other childhood favorites. It was great.



and now FiM is seriously the only thing Discovery Family has. It's gonna die so fast once it ends lol.


CappyToday at 9:27 AM


where is the wb stuff now


SigmasonicXToday at 9:28 AM


I fully expect G5 to be direct to Netflix



The show, I mean


theirongiantToday at 9:28 AM


I will be legit surprised if the channel even lasts into 2020


SigmasonicXToday at 9:28 AM


Discovery Family existed somehow before it was the Hub. I imagine it will get by showing sitcom reruns and kid-aimed reality shows.


CappyToday at 9:29 AM


pawn star babies



young people's court


SigmasonicXToday at 9:29 AM


I think the WB stuff the Hub aired is just... nowhere.


theirongiantToday at 9:29 AM


Hulu is at least reviving Animaniacs


SigmasonicXToday at 9:30 AM


Oh yeah, I forgot about that.


theirongiantToday at 9:30 AM


That reminds I don't think they even released all of Tiny Toons and Animaniacs on DVD


SigmasonicXToday at 9:30 AM


I don't think they did


CappyToday at 9:32 AM


The Smol British Bake Off



i hope discovery is writing these down


SigmasonicXToday at 9:34 AM






Wait, I don't work for Discovery anymore. Sorry, you're on your own.


ScizToday at 9:36 AM


I know Animaniacs finally got its final volume years after the rest of them, not sure about TTA


theirongiantToday at 9:39 AM


Okay, I was wrong. Both shows do have all episodes on DVD but yeah, they were very staggered releases.


SigmasonicXToday at 9:41 AM


They were waiting for the kids who got started with the first DVD to be the same age as the people who watched the show as it aired were when the first DVD came out.


theirongiantToday at 9:42 AM


Now the Disney Afternoon shows on the other hand, never got full releases


SigmasonicXToday at 9:42 AM


That's probably what I was thinking of



Watch those not be on Disney+ either


theirongiantToday at 9:45 AM


I can possibly see Ducktales, Gargoyles and Darkwing Duck on there eventually because those are the only three Disney actually acknowledges.


SigmasonicXToday at 9:45 AM


Bonkers or bust


CappyToday at 9:46 AM


no ifs ands or buts(edited)


SigmasonicXToday at 9:47 AM


Bonkers



Someone's stealing the show(edited)







theirongiantToday at 9:49 AM



Honestly, Bonkers was always my least favorite. Apparently Disney agrees too, because that show doesn't get acknowledged at all


SigmasonicXToday at 9:50 AM


It was alright. I thought it was weird as hell that the second season got rid of the male detective (Lucky?) and the woman was in the opening the entire time... until I learned that season one was created AFTER season two.



Oh right, the woman is named Miranda


theirongiantToday at 9:51 AM


Miranda Wright. Get it?


SigmasonicXToday at 9:51 AM





theirongiantToday at 9:52 AM


Yeah, i don't either Derpy.


CappyToday at 9:52 AM


I refuse to answer


SigmasonicXToday at 9:52 AM


I liked Lucky more because, as much as it was just Roger Rabbit all over again, it was at least a conflict with Bonkers. Miranda was just generically nice, as I recall.


theirongiantToday at 9:53 AM


Yeah, she was just there really. Though she does a have nice design, that is good for certain "purposes"


SigmasonicXToday at 9:54 AM


As I recall, season one had full-episode stories, while season two (made before) was a collection of shorts, some being Bonkers as a detective, other being his "actual shorts" as an actor.(edited)



And yes, I figured people liked Miranda for that reason >_>


CappyToday at 9:55 AM


i can't picture anything but bonkers

Stream announcements.

On Friday, it's Sylvee's time again already, thanks to February being February, and we're watching various Nicktoons, exact lineup still TBA.

On Sunday, we're going to actually get around to watching Forgotten Friendship again... and finally get back to something we've gone far too long without.



Where did the towel go? Checkmate, atheists.

1. G3 - The Princess Promenade
2. EQG - Forgotten Friendship
3. Kaleido Star - 11
4. Super Gals - 31

There surprisingly aren't any G1 or G3 stories that involve memory loss. Well, there's one Tales episode where a character pretends to have amnesia, but eh.

It's been a while since we watched Big Hero 6 the Series, and there's only three stories left, none of which are ones I'm invested in showing, and one I'd prefer not to: the season finale, which is a three parter, and not very good. So I'm officially declaring our viewing of this show over, until season 2 starts.

Speaking of which, Tangled returns Sunday after next.
