    This does look quite cheesy and derivative. I get the feeling someone looked at FiM saw how unusually popular it was and decided "I Take a bit of that action" and went ahead to make this without realising what actually made FiM as popular as it is.

    From the looks of that trailer it's going to the the generic girly cartoon trying to sell toys (much like MLP was back in the day) If you've ever had the misfortune of seeing Strawberry Shortcake on a livestream before FiM starts, that's exactly the sort of thing I'm talking about.

    I thought the exact same thing. XD It just looks so much like one of those never-heard of rip-offs that you see in there. Well, to me anyway.

    Let's not forget Poundland's "My Lovely Pony" and Pound Empire's "My Lovely Horse" (which rips off two shows, come to think of it) toys.

    I've been playing around with Filly.com a bit. If you wanna add me, I'm Rust Guardian the 7th, although I don't have much to show for myself yet. Gotta collect more horseshoes!

    This reminds me of my blind-bag hunts in Germany last year, before the G4 blind bags were even widely available in the UK.

    Every now and again one finds a shop which appears to sell MLP blind-bags… then on closer inspection… it's the F word :(

    No. :)

    Nope. :)

    Nah. :)

    Checked out the trailer and it does nothing for me. The art style and animation doesn't really appeal, and I think the voice acting could use a little work. That said, I'm sure kids will enjoy it. They'd be better off enjoying FiM though, in my opinion. :)

    It's like.. Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon and MLP have been spliced into some strange cheesy pony show...? What is this?

    Sooo, anyone else seen the new trailer/promo?

    It's looking semi-promising to me, especially on the music front!

    You know the more I see of this the more I think there's a genuine attempt here to create something that's good rather than a shameless cash-in. The characters don't look bad and there's an obvious attempt to create a reasonably complex back-story. Going by the first trailer, I think it hinges on whether we're meant to take the story about the missing cupcakes seriously, or whether there's an element of humour in the idea that the characters are taking it seriously. If it's the latter it could be potentially entertaining. Not too sure about the second trailer, looks a lot cheaper than the first.

    Agreed that the person responding to YouTube comments has done an excellent job, not only dealing with a herd of angry Bronies but even winning some of them over, he/she deserves a bonus. I love how there's already fan-art for this, even if it's ironic at this point, and how the staff are already engaging with it all. Very clever PR.

    So for those reasons I'm going to give it a go. It might be terrible, probably will be, but there's no harm in trying it. And if it's good who knows what this will do to the fandom...

    I'm not sure if it's bronies, or people pretending to be to try to troll the comments.
    Might be both actually.
