Pony Life is incoming, so brace yourself!


At least they have hooves now.

it;s actually not that bad

its really not

i was s surprised


File: 1593153235443.jpg (26.54 KB, 248x441, 248:441, doonuuuutttt.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

I like it so far! It's kinda like compressed episodes.


Its been out for a while.


File: 1593153389393.png (167.89 KB, 420x420, 1:1, 0a608c4adf4983f4f932646694….png) ImgOps Google

it's cute and charming! while it's not on par with the original show, it's actually pretty fun, if a bit overthetop at times

that being said, what's the deal with the potions? they seem oddly in focus for being non-important to the story.


File: 1593153819834.jpg (37.53 KB, 355x459, 355:459, ehwhatchagonnado.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

Probably "we're gonna sell potion toys, work them into the episodes."


File: 1593153907444.jpg (52.46 KB, 312x443, 312:443, qrwerw.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

that would make sense. although what would these potions be? are they gonna be an actual liquid you can drink? or is it just something that comes along with the toy like a tiny plastic bottle?


File: 1593154327979.jpg (25.63 KB, 243x427, 243:427, addeazsoljah.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

Probably not the former, it might be a regulatory nightmare.

i dunno, i can see them coming out with a series of fruit juice drinks called Pony Life Potions, or something to that degree ^^


Probably just gonna be some color changing water, or alternatively, potion bottles that change color a la those spoons you got in cereal once.


>inb4 they're ponification serums

that be really cool, although they oughta be careful, since in the show they drink the darn things. so whatever they make, it's gotta be absolutely clear whether it is meant to be dranked or not :PP

i'll drink to that bro!


That's why personally, if I were to design such a toy, I'd do the latter so the kids can just use normal water.

I can't recall if the original show was so frivolous with them.

Since they show them as actually magical, it's kind of strange to just have them be sipped like they're soda.


File: 1593167998541.png (158.91 KB, 711x801, 79:89, G3.5 Epic Mount.png) ImgOps Google

So... is this like the G3.5 of G4?
I mean, it's not bad, at least they kept the original voice actors, but at the same time I see it as it's own thing.

Why do all modern cartoons look like they were animated by a 12 year old with ADHD and an illegally downloaded copy of Flash?


File: 1593191272351.png (102.47 KB, 640x480, 4:3, chrys WAt the am i reading.png) ImgOps Google

not only that... but what is it with all the screaming?
in all cartoons nowdays, so much screaming


Kids like that sort of thing.

My guess would be that all these cartoons are literally competing with more things for kids attention and being loud is one way to get attention.

What was there when I was a kid, besides cartoons? There was the super nintendo and outside. That's it. Three choices. Super Nintendo, Cartoons and Outside. Now there's a million things in every kid's pocket.

it's lead to a style of cartoon that doesn't appeal to anyone but those who grew up in those specific circumstances.


File: 1593191675207.png (755.2 KB, 713x1981, 713:1981, tall.png) ImgOps Google

It's cheap.

And we all know that even if cartoons can be nice they're just long-form advertisements so profits must be maximized for shareholders.


Lots of cartoons go beyond their origins as extended toy commercials and actually tell an interesting story, though.

Perhaps. But they would never get to if they weren't making a profit. Would they?


Also, my sister likes to point out that more children are being born with autism now than they were before for reasons people haven't figured out yet. According to her, cartoons are being dumbed down as a result. Although I'm not sure I agree with her reasoning, the unexplained rising cases of autism is interesting and I wonder what affect it is having on children's entertainment.


I guess? But you can make profit by being good too.

Oh yeah, no doubt. But in the end it doesn't matter how good your cartoon is if kids don't want the associated toys.

Although, I don't remember a lot of toys from the golden age of Cartoon Network?


Because not all cartoons are designed to sell toys. Some just need viewership and they make their money from commercials. Only a small subset of cartoons are designed with an accompanying toy-line, and some get made as cartoons first and toys second.

This totally blow my perception of the whole thing to bits.
It's not black and white.


Are you being sarcastic, dude?

Nah, sorry if it came off as anything but a little weird, honestly I did just argue something black and white and it's a lot more nuanced than that.

I was being dumb.


Alright. Well yes, it's not black and white. What you said about cartoons being toy commercials was a lot more true in the 80s (because of Ronald Reagan. Seriously.)

But yes, obviously not all cartoons have toylines they are trying to sell. They make their money the same way non-cartoon TV shows do, through sponorship and commercials, and digital/bluray sales. Some cartoons get popular and start a toyline, but that isn't their main goal, it's just profits the IP can make on the side.

A very small subset of cartoons are made specifically to push a toyline. Cartoons based on properties owned by Hasbro (a toy company) are usually in this category. This includes things like G.I. Joe, Transformers and My Little Pony.

i will say this

it makes miss the original a lot

and it REALLY makes me miss starlight glimmer as its not the same without her

that being said, it's not as bad as some were saying it was gonna be

that also being said, it is worth watching  

...it's okay at best

and meh at worst


Pick a cartoon. Any cartoon whatsoever. New, reboot, sequel, whatever.

Every single one of them has, if you are o believe the intenret, singlehandedly destroyed all of civilization by existing and poisoned mankind forever.

There's a reason I don't pay attention to what folks have to say  about anything upcoming until its actually out and I watch a bit myself.

Don't ever make the mistake of thinking things can't get any worse.

"Well its not not worse than i thought" good one Twi.

Who knew Fim .5 was gonna be Ren n Stimpy.  *shrug, hasbro can't hurt me.  I permanently live in season 5 or so.

I thought it was pretty abysmal, Moony

She's wrong though.

When you deal with autism, you got to make the cartoon more niche-like.


Who the fuck is Starbright Shimmer?

Well, the correlation does suggest a theory that perhaps the decline in children's programming quality may be causing autism.

If only i had found pony sooner, but it was too late for me by then.  Sigh

ah, well, will be nice to see her again

not even enough to say her name right?

look, i fully understand if you know about her in general

thats one thing

but her name is easy to remember


File: 1593199431317.png (183.91 KB, 384x383, 384:383, interesting.png) ImgOps Google

she's the most powerful unicorn in Equestrian history.

Like, she literally figuratively becomes Dumbledore by the end of the series.


File: 1593200010985.jpg (144.83 KB, 1008x756, 4:3, E9107 MLP Magical Unicorn ….jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

And whos fault is that, you anti-later-seasons-guy.  If you watched, you'd know the dragon queen accused Starlight of being indistinguishable from Twilight.  That would give you much better annoy-Mikie ammo than puns.

Oooooo looks like a new Tia sex toy is included in the lineup!  Must have!


File: 1593200079847.png (574.16 KB, 656x804, 164:201, 4546767.png) ImgOps Google

she isn't even an alicorn though

her and twilight maybe on par

but i think twilight has a bit more power


File: 1593200466889.jpg (104.88 KB, 1155x1155, 1:1, E9100 MLP Magical Potion S….jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

Depends which ep.  They made a point of showing she's on an Alicorn power level at least and then they dialed it way back for a while.

Kinda like the way they simply forgot about the rainbow magic which was too powerful so instead of getting into consensus and leadership issues regarding sharing power, it simply ceased to exist and is never spoken of again.

yeah, and those were simply implications at best

granted, it's no secret that starlight is very powerful

she rightfully is

but her and twilight in terms on power seem to be almost on par


Oh well the making up silly names for her is me expressing I don't know who it is in a humorous way.


That seems a little antithetical to the rules the series set up surrounding magic, but since I didn't see how she got to that point, maybe there's some explanation for the discrepancy.

The dragon what?

All in all, it's a regular MLP story performed by ponies who had way too much cafeine.

Otter know what to say


Equestria Girls exists for one reason only, and it's because Monster High was popular.

Pony Life exists for one reason only, and it's because Teen Titans Go is popular.


File: 1593297450231.png (138.75 KB, 344x372, 86:93, ah.png) ImgOps Google

Teen Titans Go has its moments
But if Pony Life goes full TTG style humour, then I'm outtie for realsies

The style and pacing is so obnoxious... at least to me.

Then again, I haven't watched pony stuff in years. I still need to watch seasons 7 and 8.


But, Monster High have knees and elbows.

What gives.




They included the dolphin lewds meme on Fluttershy!

I am out.


What if dolphins are sentient in Equestria?

Did you know that Dolphins are one of only three species on Earth that have sex for pleasure?

Teen Titans Go sucks.


File: 1593370631427.png (52.6 KB, 224x240, 14:15, adventure time.png) ImgOps Google

The others are humans and Fluttershy

> Teen Titans Go sucks
Honestly, overall I can agree.
But it can be a guilty pleasure gold mine at times.


> one of only three species on Earth that have sex for pleasure

I happen to know there are at least 4.


Humans, dolphins and bonobo apes.


>humans have sex for pleasure

The things people will believe.

*tbc these are supposed to be jokes?  just in case.


>Dolphins are one of only three species on Earth that have sex for pleasure
How do you distinguish between doing something for pleasure vs doing it out of instinct?  


I'm sure there's ways to tell.

Not sure if this is an appropriate direction to go, but I find it a weird trivia.
Brainscans could work, but I don't think scientist managed to hold every single animal in place to do the scan during the deed.

What I do know is that a lot of common animals engage in self-pleasuring activities, which I will find weird if there's no gratification to be gotten from it.

He was off by a few months, though

I do wonder if somewhere in the future someone will use that poem in a documentary to review 2020
Well, I mean, probably not. Corona will kill most of us in August/September or something

'Pony Life' seems like what a lot of other cartoons are like nowadays. It's decidedly "tween" and doesn't suffer from the split viewership that FiM had: it will have the audience it is written for. It's "My Little Pony" with puberty.
