So how many of you actually watched the show as a kid?
>>36186796When I was a kid G1 was on the air.But no, I didn't watch.
>>36186796lmao there are probably """people""" here who actually watched eqg as "kids"get off my lawn
>>36186802>no original jokes
>>36186796Is a "25-year-old man" considered a kid?
>>36186814The only joke here is OP
Why yes, I did grow up following the adventures of little magical ponies from my early teens onwards, how could you tell?
>>36186829Same thing with my mid teens.Ponies are a blessing.
>>36186829>early teensthe true master race was forced to watch it when it was their sister's turn on the tv
>>36187004>their sister's turn on the tvAny exciting tales of pony incest roleplay?
>>36187105no shes my sister you fucking degenerate
>>3618679622I still haven't watched anything beyond the 1st episode
>>36187122I don't know if I should mock you for being a fan of the fandom or congratulate you for only watching the canon episodes
>>36187130>NOOOO YOU HAVE TO WATCH ALL THE EPISODES OR ELSE YOU'RE A FAN OF THE FANDOM>NOOO YOU CAN'T LIKE ANY OF THEM OR ELSE YOU'RE A HASDRONE
>>36186796I was like 27 when it started.
>>36186796I was in my mid 20s when it came out.
>>36186796>kid16 or 17 far as I recall and not on tv but stream sites.
>>36186804Yeah, something similar here. When I was a kid I remember G1 was aired after Barney and before Pokémon. But I don't remember the show at all, maybe because in that time Pokemon was popular as fuck in my country so I didn't have interest in the other shows. Years after they aired from time to time some G3 episodes, and I totally hated it.
>>36186814That isn't a joke.
>>36186796I watched G1 because we only had one TV at the time and it's what my sister watched. So I watched MLP with her and she watched Transformers with me.
>>36186796Not sure if your definition of kid implies anything not an adult.I danced around the show due to insecurities at 13, but something broke through deep within me at 14 and I went full autism.
>>36186796I started watching when season 5 began. I was 13 1/2. Does that count as a kid?
>>36186796I was 15 when I first started watching it in December 2010.Considering I still remember the exact month I started watching it, which I cannot say for any single other piece of animation, I'd say I didn't need to be a small child for it to have impacted my life.
>>36186796I started watching it when I was 15. Late 2013, I believe.
>Forget how much time was lost here>check the old reliable porn folder>oldest image saved is from the 17th Jan 2013>Was 22 when I started watching FiM>mfw
I was already a teenager by then and looked down at people getting into it, first when browsing /co/ and later when it seeped into real life, but I always liked a lot of the fan art(none porn) as a guilty pleasure. I couldn't really get into the show despite making a half assed attempt.Ten years later I'm an unemployed adult virgin shut-in and finally watching random episodes weekly and masturbating to the characters daily.
>>36187181>G1 was aired after Barney and before Pokémon.Those were already a thing in 1986-87?I thought they didn't hit until at least the mid-90's.
>>36187118>shes my sisterWell no shit, Sherlock...that's what makes it incest.And hot.
>>36186796I was 14
>>36186827> Is a "25-year-old man" considered a kid?Only if you act like one.
>>36187678I dunno, I was born in mid 90's, so I'm talking about like 98-99.
>>36186796I'm not even a bronie, but I had a kid sister who loved it and I'm an awesome brother.so together.
>>36186796I was a teen. Does that count?
>>36186796Started fucking around here when I was 15-16-ish. The thing that caught my eye was all the hype around the cmc getting their cutie marks. Just seeing how happy that made people was enough to break any pre-existing qualms I had with watching a kids show. Well, only after checking this place out courtesy of PTS. Now, at 21, I’ve watched the whole show and write decently often for random threads whenever an idea is just begging to be explored further. I probably would’ve an hero’d if I hadn’t experienced what the show/community has to offer. Shit, now you’ve got me emotional, OP. Fuck you all /)
>>36186827Nowadays, it often is.
>>36186796I started watching shortly before season 2 started, which coincidentally was the same year I turned 18. So I narrowly avoided being an underagefag.
>tfw 18 and have been watching since I was 9fucking casuals get on my level
>>36186796I started watching when I was 10.I’m 20 now.This has been half my goddamn life.
>>36187734Okay, that makes more sense but it must have been re-runs by then.I remember when G1 was on first run.Honestly, even the girls I knew weren't that interested. It really was targeted at little kids back then...just another plastic toy for them to slobber on, draw on with markers and eventually be chewed up by the dog.Only later, when they realized they had a 'collector' market did they try to appeal to adults and older kids.
>>36187844>tfw 37 and watching since I was 4Get off my lawn.
>>36186796Do you mean like G1 show or something?
>>36188100Anon... the show's been on the air for over ten years now.
>>36188110If they're exactly 20 now, that means they watched during teenage years, which is unrealistic. Teens avoid anything "for little girls" like a plague.
>>36188214If they were 18 they could have watched it as young as 8 though
>>36187181>G1 was aired after Barney
>>36186796>the charges, officer?
I was 14 when I first started watchingIt was magical
>>36186796I was 12 when i started watching fim
>>36186796The first episode I caught live was Hearth's Warming Eve, December 2011. I would have been 14.Thinking about that and looking at the episodes that were coming out at the time, remembering all the little things, makes my heart hurt.
>>36187753Don't leave him hanging bros. (\
I was 16 when it aired, only really started getting into it about a year and a half ago.
>>36186796I know time passes and all but it feels so weird to see people mention they watched the show when they were kids. I guess partly because I still think of 2010 as not that long ago even though it was a fucking decade, but also that I got into it at the beginning here on 4chan where it all started, and it's an 18+ website. And that all the oddity surrounding the fandom was that it was adult men watching a little girls' cartoon. It's not so weird if you were actually a child then because if you're still into it now at least you have the excuse of nostalgia.
>>36188977I'm more shocked that people even dare mention their age. I've been of age for more than half a decade now and I still don't mention how old I am, and here people younger than me are.
>>36187155Damn dude, so you're like almost 40 now? What's that like?I was 18 when S1 came out. I'm now almost 29, which is basically 30, and listening to these younger folks who are like 22-24 now, making awesome horse music with all the enthusiasm and manic energy that the fandom had in the beginning, I get worried that that feeling is going to personally leave me. I hate to admit it, but I'm worried about not feeling young.
>>36188977Let's hang, bronny boomer. I vibe with your image
>>36189164It's anonymous so who cares?
>>36189972>What's it like?Oh it's pretty cool, you have all these zoomer fags asking you shit like "Damn dude, so you're almost 40 now? What's that like?"
>>36190131Started watching when I was 14We were in middle school talking about the season 3 hiatus.
>>36186796I started watching My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic when I was ten years of age. It has completely consumed every aspect of my life since then.
I was in middle school when I started watching, but I lost interest after a year or two. I came back to the show briefly in high school, then stopped. Now that I'm an adult, I cherish those memories and wish I had found this board sooner.
>>36189996I'm paranoid as shit and get afraid any idiosyncrasies of mine will become obvious
>>36190131But beyond that, dick nob
>>36190131I guess that's what I have to look forward to, being that far out of touch
>>36186796I was 8 when the show aired. Watched the premier with my sisters because we shared a room and TV. I thought it was just gonna be Backyardagains for girls. Now I'm here.
