It is a TV show about cartoon horses made for little girls. Yet in just three years, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, has amassed a huge following among an unlikely audience – grown men.

  1. It's great that these guys have found something they love and are passionate about but I'm still curious why My Little Pony attracts a lot of adult men while other kid's animated shows like Spongebob or Phineas and Ferb don't. What aspect does this show have that attracts both their target audience and the people outside of it?

  2. Wow a news story that's not a total hit piece on bronies 😆. M A Larson is so on point by saying that the series does not fall into the postmodern cynicism and nihilism that's so common in shows today. My Little Pony does stand out because it is sincere, has a heart and covers real issues that effect us all at any age. Because of that fact it has changed the world. If only everyone watched it. 😏😉 I would genuinely call it a sitcom and with a series run of nine seasons, a spin-off series, and a theatrical movie it goes down in history as one of the most popular shows out there let alone a popular cartoon. 😮

  3. It may sound weird and uncommon to most people including me, but all in all I don’t find anything wrong with adult men or anyone in general watching MLP. I’m not a brony, I haven’t watched the show (well maybe a few cutscenes here and there from my sister little watching it in the TV) and I don’t think I ever really will unless I actually watch an episode out of curiosity (I actually attempted once a few years ago, but I don’t remember finishing the episode and I don’t really remember anything from it)
    I honestly can’t understand the people who keep bashing bronies, like is it a crime to like a show that you don’t? If they like the show, then let them like them. It’s not like they will change their mind because YOU think the show is very stupid.

  4. As shocking as it is to see grown men wearing wigs and liking my little pony a lot, it seems to make them happy. Who cares what makes these guys happy?? What’s the big deal and how does it affect your life? I say let them be happy and comfortable in their own skin

  5. You have to be ridiculously immature to find genuine value in My Little Pony, I understand it teaches life values but so does literally every single childrens cartoon, that's the point of childrens cartoons. If you need a cartoon to tell you lying is bad or that friendship is important as a fully grown adult, something is wrong.
