  • Davos Seaworth

    At the risk of being scorned by Bronies everywhere, isn’t the whole Ponies thing kinda played out by now?

    • Well, the cartoon series is coming back for a 7th season in April.
      Now, could it be said that the bulk of the series is done? Probably (I mean, how many shows last to 14 seasons?). But are we “done” with ponies? Probably not. It’s such a cultural thing at this point. It’ll probably have a life continuing on for quite a long time, even when the series inevitably ends.
      I mean, the original Scooby Doo lasted 2 seasons and it’s still as much a part of people’s lives as it ever was.

    • Grimbergen

      Some franchises are evergreen, especially if they can have strong themes that still resonate with adults who grew up with those brands. Saying this is played out is like trying to call and end to the barbie fad.

      Part of the lasting appeal also is that the current series has relative good writing and songs. This is not the generic episodic cartoon of the 80s.

      • Well, Lauren Foust, who adapted this version, is married to the guy who created The Powerpuff Girls (among several others). Many of the supervising directors had experience with shows like Ed, Edd, and Eddy. It was those two things that caused me to give the show a real try. And, honestly, I could see a lot of the influences from those various sources.
        I mean, they make a lot of references to things that kids won’t get. Particularly when Discord is around, but other times as well, you’ll see all sorts of things get a wink and a nod. Hell, they made a Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas reference. It’s not quite the “adult humor snuck in under the radar” that something like Animaniacs had, but still references to older shows and movies that adults will find humorous.
