MLP Won't Turn Evil Into Good by Eternities22 MLP Won't Turn Evil Into Good by Eternities22
I AM NOT REFERRING TO ALL BRONIES. JUST THE OVER-OBSESSED ONES.

Of all the many ridiculous things bronies say, this is one of the things which irks me the most: their claim that MLP:FIM is so magnificently pure and divine that it will instantly change evil into good. To a lot of bronies, the show is like the answer to world peace, uniting every individual on Earth into a love of ponies and joy.

This irks me because such claims are absolutely bonkers. If it's really the thing that'll help mankind achieve world peace, why does it have so many haters? Because not everyone enjoys this cartoon, and raving about it all the time won't turn haters into fans. The world is a very varied place, and everyone likes different things. The chances of everyone on Earth eventually watching the show and instantly loving it are impossible. It's not going to happen, because it isn't THAT good.

There are also claims that it cures depression, motivates people to do well in life, and guarantees eternal happiness. Bronies, it's a freakin' cartoon, and the messages it teaches are for KIDS. If you are seriously saying that this show actually helped you change your life for the better, then you must have had some pretty bad lives. Yes, it teaches good messages to people. But these messages are aimed at children, specifically kids who need guidance in making and keeping friends. None of the messages will have any serious effect on the world beyond that demographic.

It wouldn't have encouraged Adolf Hitler to stop having Jews killed, or convinced Osama Bin Laden not to attack New York City. It's a cartoon for kids.

It won't make abortion less immoral.
It won't get Japan to apologize for Nanking or Bataan.
I'd go further but I'd make more people angry.

One of the reasons why I dislike this show. It's kinda ironic since in G1 the characters didn't mind to see the villains die but that what made it so epic in my opinion.

If they want to make a cartoon for world peace they should make it realistic and a documentary to understand the point of view of every different character/person in the cartoon and tell their back story.

claims that it cures depression, motivates people to do well in life, and guarantees eternal happiness.

If that isn't one of the stupidest & most illogical things I've ever read then I don't know what does. Not to mention that its fans also start boasting about how the show taught them about friendship, respect, love, & meaningful things when that is stuff they should have learned back in--what--elementary? Even so, messages like those have been done in other, far superior shows or movies & made less cheesy or done more subtly (Miyazaki Movies, Avatar The Last Airbender)

Not only that, people don't even FOLLOW the dumb lessons. Like, people say "Respect with friendship!" yet when someone brings hate to their fandom they bash as much as they can.

The reason that it is in the least bit 'inspiring' is because the show was going to sell toys to little girls now matter how bad it was, but the people behind the production put so much love and care into making it a good show that it became enjoyable for everyone.  There was absolutely no reason to put any effort into making it good, yet they did.  FiM was only supposed to last a single season, and it's already been approved for a fifth.

The age of good cartoons is over.  Avatar was probably the last great animated show, the sequel isn't even half as good. Nowadays the 'key' to making a successful cartoon is unbearably stupid characters and unintelligent slapstick 'humor', ie fart jokes galore.  But it's nice to know that at least one good series is around.

Also, older viewers don't watch the show to learn any sort of lesson, they watch it because it is well made and entertaining.

LOL now I know you're a troll. You expect me to believe that you think good cartoons are over yet a show like MLP is an acceptable one? How dare you insult animation with such an asinine statement. Adventure Time, Regular Show, Flapjack, Chowder, & Lazlo are all great cartoons. Yes Avatar is too. MLP may have splendid animation but everything else about isn't anything above OK. It has basic character archetypes (the biggest reason bronies have to love the show yet it's completely flawed), storytelling that gets generic after a while, a terrible villain, & annoying musical numbers (and I happen to be a fan of musicals).

They don't watch it for that, but supposedly they learn things from it that they should have learned back in Kindergarten.

Chowder, Camp Lazlo, and Flapjack are no longer in development, and Adventure Tme and Regular Show are stupid. Bring it on haters.

Cartoons these days strive to be stupid.  Apparently it's the only thing that keeps kids watching.  Uncle Grandpa, Clarence, Regular Show, all three of these cartoons feature main characters that are moronic to the point of sadness.  Spongebob, which used to be a decent show, has continually gotten dumbed down to 'keep up' with the changing times.  It's pathetic.

Adventure Tme and Regular Show are stupid.

Yeah, might I remind you that you like MLP. And they are far from stupid. They are intelligently written cartoons, with Adventure Time being the best one. It has actual character development & storylines, lavish animation, lovely art style & fantastic stories amongst it's characters. Whereas my little pony has characters with basic archetypes that never go beyond them (the sporty one, the country girl, the bookworm, the annoying one, the shy one, & the fashion whore), generic stories, an insulting villain, annoying musical numbers, & bland jokes.

Nobody gives two shits about Uncle Grandpa or Clarence, even my cousins, who are kids mind you, consider those shows stupid. So if you really think kids are entertained by stupidity then you are an absolute moron who knows nothing, & are insulting to ANYONE that actually has made their life of studying many cartoons &/or animating such as myself. Then again, you did call Adventure time stupid so I rest my case.

Futurama is also a GREAT show, with more story arcs and well written (plus with epic animation).

You don't need to remind me that I like MLP, that's what the discussion is about.

I used to be a hater too.  I ran my mouth and insulted people for watching the show and thought the worst of them.  So I understand your arguments.

Now if you aren't going to take my comments seriously and have a decent conversation with me, then I have nothing further to say.  I will forgive you for the mindless insults if you are willing to rethink them.  I don't want to have unintelligible insult fights with people who disagree with me or my opinions, or with those that I disagree with.  I want to have meaningful and worthwhile conversation that is geared towards developing a further understanding on the different views of the subject in question.

I am no longer going to continue to reply to comments on this image.  If you want to continue the conversation, feel free to note me.  I may not respond immediately, but I will respond in time if a response is justified.

Indeed. And the amount of people who have been "inspired" by it. During my brief time watching the show, I enjoyed it, but why the hell would it inspire me? It's just too insignificant to inspire me. And yet millions of people overrate it to the skies.

Yeah, & some people wonder why people hate the show & its fans. If one show, out of countless other better shows inspired you then I'm sorry but I have no reason to call you an artist. Yes, if it ONE of your influences I'll get that, but if it's the ONLY show that inspires you then good luck getting any real respect as an artist.
