MLP Won't Turn Evil Into Good by Eternities22 MLP Won't Turn Evil Into Good by Eternities22

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.

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)

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.
