>>36177820>presence of >no hoovesThe universe is cursed
>>36177876You can always watch My Little Pony Tales which is pretty much still part of G1 and it doesn't have any human characters.
>>36177938So this is what an earth pony ethnostate looks like.
>>36177938You should warn him that the human posing in Pony Tales is so bad it's even worse than the late seasons of FiM.Also does it bother anybody else when you see someone talking about "the entire franchise" when they clearly only know about G4?
>>36177876To reduce EQG's flaws to merely being 'non pony' is a disservice to how inferior G4's "humans" really are. Megan worked on far more levels than this shitty little easter egg cameo gives her credit for.>was planned from the show's pilot episode as an audience POV character, and not as a hackneyed rip-off of an entirely unrelated franchise>didn't break the immersion of Ponyland by letting contemporary human technology clash with their D&D-esque fantasy setting, that shit was just straight-up ignored (as many logistics were with G1 granted)>ponies were actually "equine" enough for Megan to compliment them nicely (as a horse girl herself, who knew how to brush their manes and take care of them overall)>actively participated as a protagonist, and actually made sense of the title "MY little pony" (in the show at least - they were "her's")
>>36178245She's still >no hooves.Remember. It is a human.Must be a tranny. Must be a revolutionary agent to subvert Equestria.
>>36177820will do, thanks
>>36178471>faces obstructed by watermark
In your own opinion which was the best serial from the original show?
>>36177876 why is she running past the camera like a fucking cryptid
>>36178274go back TF tranny
>>36179495She's not a cryptid though. She is a mimetic polyalloy capable of assuming various forms.
>>36179510 An SCP then?
There's something really cute about how the ponies used to look in G1.
G1 ponies should be enslaved, tortured and humiliated
>>36179577>cute you meant creepy and uncanny right?
>>36179577Yup. They lick each other in animation, nowadays that won't be allowed due to censors.(The leg in the pic, tho.)
>>36179595That's already happened.
>>36179595"enslaving and tormenting" little ponies never ends well in-universe, unless you're eager to meet a terrible fate.
>>36180086Majesty is the most based pony in existence.
>>36180123But she could also use her powers for evil.Though was she the one who kept rap-battling her enemies to defeat them?
>>36180086Jesus christ raimi
>>36180086Casually liquidising the enemy is a bold move.
>>36180086Could Majesty do what with the >no hooves autistes?
>Megan kills Tirek in the first episode>Spike never killed MegatronMegan was the best Hasbro human companion
>>36182533The G1 character's name is spelled Tirac.
HA HA HEE HEEDO YOU SEE WHAT I SEE?A BUNCH OF LOVELY (YOU)SES FOR MY POST AND ME
>>36179577It's the butt-bows.Seriously, the big ribbons tied around their tails had to have been some show artist's fetish.
>>36183062Nah, it's reference to IRL tail ribbons on horses.
>>36183062I don't think there were as many hyper degenerates back in the days without internet. I doubt it was a fetish for a writer. Also, autism wasn't as prevalent back then.
>>36183153>many hyper degenerates back in the days without internethttps://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/image/upload/s--wsoKBH38--/c_fill,fl_progressive,g_north,h_358,q_80,w_636/19ga8369cu4dzjpg.jpg

>>36183175I ain't clicking that shit, nigga.
>>36183748SweetHeart is a sweetheart.
Someone post the original horsefucker
>>36184567Queen Rosedust is dangerously underrated for how cute and f*ckable she is.
>>36179601No, Anon means cute.
There is too little interest in G1. Sad.
>>36183175Animators have always been huge pervs, but that's just juvenile graffiti
I didn't think G1 ponies would be this hot desuAny recomendations to watch? where to start
>>36187504Rescue from Midnight Castle
>>36187504What are you looking for? Slice of life or adventure?
>>36187879Hah I'm seeing someone fail NNN for this. It's strangely hot
So you made it to ponyland. What now, Anons?
>>36177820wtf I loce G1 now
>>36188140I go find the silly pony and we eat apples without a care in the world.
>>36187905Why are you watching someone masturbate?
>>36188153Can G1 Applejack eat all those apples?
>>36180086Are there any appearances of Majesty where she -isn't- fucking up someone's shit?
>>36188303I see you are only interested in the exceptionally rare

>so powerful her spells transcend the fourth wallNo one here can comprehend Majesty's power
I thought some of the G4 style updates from the early days of the fandom were pretty rad in their own right.
I like these ponies too
I think this one is my favorite.
>>36188865>>36188870that's pretty well animated
>>36188754>>36188824>>36188881Twinkle-Eyed Ponies look awesome in G4's style. It's kind of a shame the show ended up going for the pussified 'Crystal Ponies' when retelling their origin story, though. Having a bunch of G1 characters from a city displaced out of time would have been a lot cooler than a group of (nameless?) NPC's without very much personality in their own right. It might have even been neat seeing Masquerade's craftiness or Fizzy's weird bubble-generating powers come into play somehow in resolving the plot, as opposed to letting them all be passive victims that only the MC's can save.
>>36188606Val, no! That isn't Aleeta!
>>36189156It's Disney. If you can find something by Disney that isn't well-animated, then I'll be impressed.
>>36177820I don't much like the character models, but god the cell animation is beautiful. Sometimes I wish all our computer technology would be destroyed so we could return to the golden age of animation.
I must always remind everyone that BonBon has BoobBoobs.
>>36190247Why would they draw her with boobs?
>>36190438G1 Pony Tales is very strange. Taking human mannerisms to a whole new level. The irony is... it's kinda cute. And that's coming from a guy who hated the mannerisms in G4 S9
>>36190669Late-season humanization of the G4 ponies sucks because they started out as horses and lost that over time. G1 gave no such promises, and so when they don't act like horses you're more willing to just accept it.
>>36190438Because boobs are cool.
>>36189951Bright Eyes, a twinkle eye pony who never made it into the show. A pony by the same name did show up in Tales though.
>>36189897A lot of their direct-to-video material was pretty shit if that counts.
>>36188618wtf this child copied my artstyle
This fat bitch
>>36191122Tales was a completely different series from the first one though.
>>36195722God yes. Remember when the Phlume Plant spanked her fat ass in the movie? Unf
G1 G4 crossover. Boom
There are people attracted to the witches? Really?
>>36178245>>actively participated as a protagonist, and actually made sense of the title "MY little pony"It still makes sense if you consider FiM from Celestia's perspective.
>>36198085Those weights are having a lot of fun.
>>36199821>Boys boys boys. What do we want with boys?Then we wonder why things are the way they are in 2020
>>36200425I mean they didn't push any girl power stuff, so what are you on about? Maybe you're just shitposting, but that song even said at the end that they can't live without boys. The song was basically "some boys are rough meanies, but many others are nice and helpful".
Hello, based department
>>36201330>g1 takes place during Bateman's timehello operator?get me pony

>>36201936>wanting to speak to CloverBasedClover is our true mascot.
This is real and official.
>>36203033The dogs and cats look sort of alright, but those bunnies are awful
>>36203359I think the bunnies are okay, it's the dogs I have a problem with.
>>36203910They all look a bit weird.
>>36203033that's barely scratching the surface of "wtf" G1 had
Who would win in a fight, Majesty or Rosedust?
>>36204682Cha Cha The Llama is in G4.5, actually.
>>36204682This is why I scratch my head over all the angst surrounding Twilight's "school of friendship" and the non-pony creatures being invited. MLP has never been exclusively pony. The "School of Friendship" would've fit right in the G1 setting.
>>36205481The difference is pic related is cute and so was Equestria
>>36205481It's only here, though. The rest of the world doesn't roleplay as pony supremacists. Main critique of School of Friendship are:1) "School of Friendship". It's in the name. School that teaches friendship. In classes. 'nuff said.2) Student Six weren't good at designing stage to begin with (you can't tell their character just by looking at them, because they're too generic), and they had zero development over two seasons. Elevating them by lowering Mane Six didn't help either.
>>36206060Is that ice cream around her mouth or was she just happy to see you?
>>36198085The weight has a great view of her butt
>>36190247>Lyra, what are you doing with those old pictures of my mom?!
>>36205778bruh student six look good. They have nice colours and unique silhuettes.
>>36201975>my ancestor :)
>>36188865>>36188870My headcanon is that this is the beginning of the MLP universe
>>36206513That’s why it’s so happy
>>36207318God I wish I was that weight.
Imagine if the afterlife in Equestria was akin to Ponyland but without its usual chaos.
I don't like it but I'm glad you guys do.
>>36207925For some reason I expected this to link to one of the Reeka posts.
>>36208577Dream Valley was stunningly cozy even by G4's most idyllic standards. It felt less like a sophisticated civilization bogged down by the intricate minutiae of a society, and more like the barebone remnants of some fantasy kingdom being reclaimed by nature without being left in ruin. Ponies still lived in castles and busied themselves with human-like hobbies or interests, but were at the end of the day still horses who lazily napped out in the open and snacked on apples, with really no stake whatsoever to be concerned of in their day-to-day lives besides what they've each chosen on their own volition.
>>36209742Very cozy. Reminds me of Spyro a little bit
>>36209742Then the Smooze came...
G1 ponies look epic.
>>36209742They were like Hobbits in The Shire
>>36210372>it was a ponut-hole, and that means comfort
>>36204944Majesty can solo, Rosedust needs the rest of the Flutter Ponies to do anything.
>>36209742It'd be a bit annoying having to cross three bridges to get to the castle next door.
Anyone got the comic where Applejack kills a wizard?

Whoever wrote the pony backstories back in the day must've had a comfy job.
>>36214690Mountain Boy Ponies > Big Brother Ponies
>>36214690>>36215245Why do the male ponies look exactly like the female ones? They should’ve removed the eyelashes or something, so we could tell them apart.Wait, I just noticed their hooves look different. But I still think there should be more differences between them.
>>36215660>removed the eyelashesMales have longer eyelashesAlso, they probably wanted to avoid having to create new toy moulds
>>36215660They don't. Stallions are bigger and have unshorn fetlocks.
I wont something with the artstyle of Rescue at Midnight Castle and the animation quality of the G1 movie.
>>36215893they just did not give a shit about visual clutter with those cutie marks, did they?
>>36208577>>36209742>>36209921In Equestria, you stop the Smooze.In Soviet Ponyland, the Smooze stop you!
>>36216809I feel like g4 would've had slightly bigger (but not this much) cutie marks if they didn't have to worry about animating them in a natural way in Flash.
>>36216809Those are Twice As Fancy Ponies, which basically had their cutie marks over their entire bodies.G1 and G2 never did much with ponies' "symbols" as they were simply called. It wasn't until G3 when they got the moniker "cutie marks", and they were mainly related to a pony's traits or hobbies. G4 is when cutie marks finally got lore behind them.
>>36218343G1 had Applejack. She likes apples and has an apple... Brand?
>>36218350I'm thinking flank symbols usually indicated something a pony liked rather than their special talent. Applejack likes apples, Lickety-Split likes ice cream, Bow Tie likes ribbons, etc.
So what are the G1, G2, and G3 fandoms like? Does anyone have much experiences with them? Do they really hate the G4 fandom?
>>36218514G2 has a fandom?
>>36191747No one hates the animation in the DTVs; it's the writing people rip on.
>>36218514The toy collector side of the MLP fandom (which is usually just a disambiguous multi-gen community) is genuinely pretty comfy. I know a few toy collectors and even post in those forums sometimes, they have a lot in common with G4's fandom (generate fanart, customized merch, share headcanons, etc.) only on a much smaller scale, and aren't at all as edgy or sexualized as this side of the fandom can be. As for hate though, most seem to just ignore G4's "brony" side and often have their own,somewhat more distant way of appreciating FiM. This demographic is almost entirely adult women, so for them FiM usually wasn't even the "first" generation they fell in love with, so I guess it hits differently when their nostalgia goggles can see that much further back.A few are vocally critical against bronies, yeah, but surprisingly less than you'd think. Arguably, even more than that; the toy collector community mostly dislikes G4 as a toyline because it's easily the lowest Hasbro's dropped in quality/effort, and the biggest waste of potential in light of how much the tie-in show had to draw upon. Not even they shill for Hasbro's shit, especially since they're trading stuff second-hand or customizing stuff on their own anyways.
>>36219699There are a few pre-FiM fans over on >>>/toy/ but GR15 is so viciously enforced they aren't even allowed there
>>36219699>A few are vocally critical against broniesThen how come PersecutionAnon is so doubted?
>>36219847To maybe add a little more perspective: past gen fans tend to care significantly less about bronies than other G4 purists do. So at worst you might just see a few chicks on tumblr carrying a chip on their shoulder because they found untagged porn or something on google, or want to regurgitate some scathing hot take they heard somewhere else already, but literally who cares. Otherwise they keep to their own spaces, don't look for shit to be outraged at in our's, and don't even engage with G4-centric sites at all. They even have their own (smaller) fan conventions completely independent from any of FiM's following, so unless they're actively looking for reasons to be mad there's never actually much overlap to be worked up by anyways.
Shoo bee doo
>>36219951>>36219699Thanks for the insight.That mascot pone is a cutie.

>>36218514Little girls pissed that when they finally saved enough money to get their favorite pony hasbro replaced them with a new lineup and they had to start saving again to save again
>>36201330Just a second, transferring you now.
I've really fallen in love with the more horse-like appearance of G1, and I hope G5 returns to it.

>>36218514I remember them basically being old women and their daughters.>>36219699>>36219951To be honest sometimes I still feel bad for all the shit we caused. We barged in like we owned the place and only later it feels like people started appreciating the previous gens.
>>36224129Have you tried torrenting off nyaa.si?
>>36225451It's trucking on longer than these threads usually do, so that's got to count for something
I wish G4 had porcelain figurines like what G1 did back then.
>>36227197Real boomerette core.
>>36227259It's a lovely "grandma's house" aesthetic that feels sweet and innocent.
>>36227197Are porcelain figurines still a thing nowadays? I know they’re still around to some extent, but it seems like something that went out of style decades ago.
Hope I can save you in time thread with this bump!Watched the G1 pilot are there any other episodes or movies you'd reccomend checking out?
>>36227933These ponies have discovered how to cure balding with this one weird trick! Scientists hate them!
>>36227197>>36227265That doesn't look very profitable.
>>36229683There's always a core toy collector niche for MLP, especially for the older gens when things were always meant to be sold limited
>>36227197>>36227265>they go for $60+ on eBayThat's a bit too pricey for some grandma-core tchotchkes but damn, these look comfy.
>>36230236Even still good luck convincing Jewbro it's a worthwhile venture.
>>36227265They just remind me of cigarette smell and yelling
>>36230640Hasbro's at least outsourced to Basic Fun (a competent toy company) to produce some past gen merch, so there's some hope. I've seen them scattered to the winds between Walmarts, Targets, even a Cracker Barrel. Evidently, BF's better at pushing My Little Pony merch than Hasbro itself.
>>36230673I'd love to see how these sell in comparison to the normal toys. When did they start doing this?
>>36230743So far as I can tell (from a cursory google search), at least since 2018?I'd at least imagine they're breaking even if not doing better, considering just how much G4 merch (like the MLP: The Movie tie-ins and the Guardians of Harmony) ended up being shelf warmers getting outsourced into dollar stores and Five Below.
>>36230673Isn't Cracker Barrel a steakhouse?
>>36230789It's like, an old timey country themed restaurant but it also has a gift shop. It sells stuff like old fashioned sodas/candies, mostly stuff that'd appeal to a folksy boomer demographic but they happened to have a corner with "vintage" toys as well (I think they also had Strawberry Shortcakes and Lite Brites too)
>>36230819Speaking of, how many of you guys were in that Strawberry Shortcake thread that was on >>>/co/ a while back?
>>36231553If you never browsed /co/ then I don't know what you're even doing here.
>>36230819I went to one relatively recently, on a trip to visit an uncle with cancer. It was half gift shop, half restaurant, everything was overpriced.
>>36231567I like horses, not capeshit and gender studies. /co/ ten years ago is not /co/ today.
>>36231582>not capeshit and gender studiesIt sounds like you never browsed /co/
>>36231582/co/'s reaction to "gender-fluid" character in the comic was the same as /mlp/'s reaction to "gender-fluid" character in IDW comic.
Fuck /co/. Adults that watch cartoons are always shitty people. Always.
>>36232501It's the same as every other board in all terms, in terms of quality(shit), horniness, how reactionary it is, and has been for the whole decade, the only people who say otherwise have never went there.
>>36232516Based. People who read "graphic novels" also deserve the noose.

>>36233740The writers really liked her and I can see why. Fucking BBW goddess right there.
>>36233740>ywn eat that ass like it's candy
ponies are assholes.
>>36234884Even G1 writers hated Spike. It's not fair Spikebros.
What elements of earlier gens do you wish to see most in G4 ponies? For me it's tailbows and ponies licking each other.
>>36234884That's what you get for being greedy and trying to sneak bites.
>>36234884>that time when they noticed how lonely ahhg was, and they pretended they would play with him but, they were just trying to break out of a trap and abandoned him>later they did the same thing to draggle, promising to teach her some pony magic so she could impress her family
>>36234974I do sometimes wonder if G4 would have benefitted with sticking to the classic 'pastel' aesthetic G1 had, to distinguish itself more from every other high saturation technicolor cartoon.At the very least it might have deterred a few more cringe-looking OC's that barely fit the show's universe to begin with.
>>36235246Minty kind of reminds me of Shrek.
>>36234974This seems like a great start. But honestly early g4 writing still needs to be top. Even Tales was more comfy than most of G1
>>36218892Return of Jafar was Disney knockoff tier animation-wise.
