You know, I think I, a 38 year old white female, have developed a liking of this show. As you know, my generation grew up with the original My Little Ponies cartoon which was your typical 80's overly sugar coated saccharine affair. It was truly vomit inducingly girly with no sense of reality whatsoever. I just watched Transformers or GI Joe instead. All the ponies were basically your typical Friendship Speechifying, Goody Goodies with no real personalities to them whatsoever. But this newest incarnation, it seems to have some kind of brains behind it. Compared to the 80's cartoon all the ponies are quite distinct, and more identifiable. To me all of their personalities are pretty much appealing in that they're very genuine and distinct. Plus the humor is completely self aware of the sillier things that the old 80's show was rife with, like Pinkie Pie always breaking into song, which is more or less addressed with disbelief.
