You wanna watch this? That's cool. You wanna say it's funny? Yeah, that's your opinion.
When you say it's not girly or childish, I'm afraid I have to lol at you - and I have to lol hard.

Reminding myself on my first post in this thread and my point on the characters are easy to identify in FiM, and not so much in the original show. Judging from Wikipedia, the original show had like a total of 32 different ponies one would have to keep track on, while in FiM it's somewhere around a total of 10, with 5 main ponies. The more I compare the 2, the original show was just a big marketing show, while FiM is a "real" cartoon, not based on marketing. (Captain Obvious)
Such an amazing show.
Yes it is childish and girly. I guess it comes down to just how secure are you with yourself? If watching a well written, beautifully animated show with an excellent plot is scary for you because ponies are concerned, then I just have to ask why?
Pony avatar get!
Everyone go to youtube and type in "Ponycraft 2" it is the most epic my little pony vid ever!
Warriors Heroism, Shamans mass dispel, Paladins HOT everyone, for god sakes SOMEBODY DO SOMETHING! - My fearless guild leader
Im so conflicted. I want that as my avatar but....AJ's eyes!
And I point out it's childish girlishness because people have claimed it is not 'for little girls'. This would imply it is neither.
So, who is insecure? The person who points out the obvious, or the person unwilling to accept it?
I do not dispute it's enjoyability...that's a personal matter, and me telling you that your opinion of it is wrong would be silly...but there are certain things about the show that are hard to deny.

I saw a lot of people on this forums with Pony avatars and was like: seriously? People are watching MLP? I decided to check it and was really suprised. I got hooked to the show quickly.
Animation is well done, all characters are cool ( I rarely find all main characters enjoyable), it's funny, songs are catchy and extra awesomness to show because of references and derpy moments. Finally a good cartoon that isn't about destroying the aliens/robots/monsters/whatever like most of today's cartoons are focused on.
I don't really get why is there so many people hating the show just because it's about ponies. Don't judge the book by the cover- check out few episodes first. If you still won't like it, that's fine but please don't trash talk without watching it first.
Anyway, Rainbow Dash FTW!
In all fairness, judging the writing of the show based on a single 40 second clip is completely unfair, checking out the newest episode would be a much better way to judge it's merits. It's on youtube now. Watch it in HD for full enjoyment.
That being said, there are a few things that sell the show to me. The characters' personalities are believable and well developed. While each of the characters is outwardly just a stereotype, throughout the episodes they all recieve a surprising amount of development and backstory, making them all rich characters. Even Applejack, who everyone hates. The stories themselves are interesting, and even if they can be a bit predictable, are engaging. The comedy is the best part of the show however, it is funny without being mean or crude. It is a nice change to see innocent humor instead of the Griffins throwing up on each other for... how long did that clip go? At any rate, it is refreshing.
Trust me, I know it is a show for little girls. Though in fairness, the creator claims that she was trying to make a family show. Little girls are included in that, but so are guys, even fathers. Disney movies are widely regarded as classics despite obviously having the same target audience. Don't be quick to judge something you've not tried out, you could be missing out on something awesome.
Fuck yeah Rainbow Dash.

Pinkamina Dianne Pie is the funniest pony, but she is not nearly as awesome as RBD.
Comedy pony ranking:
Awesome pony ranking:
Applejack (bottom tier pony)
Episode 25 was the BEST episode.
OK so technically Pinkie Pie is better than RBD at speed which is the one thing she does best. She wouldn't be able to do this if RBD didn't set off that sonic rainboom to give her her powers, so Dashie remains #1. Dashie wins all matchups by default as she is the source of everyone's powers.
Bah, Applejack. Stubborn as a mule and just starts fights. Seriously is there anypony she hasn't gotten in to a fight with? Rarity constantly, Pinkie in the last ep (pinkie doesn't even seem to like AJ she just uses her to feed her party addiction) RBD because she's jealous that she doesn't have wings (you're cheating because you're using your body hur hur hur) and she screwed over Fluttershy and Twilight during applebuck season.
Bottom tier pony.
