    Aristocats anyone? lol!

    I wasn't meaning to compare them in quality. They're in two separate mediums even so it would be difficult to appropriately say anything about their comparative quality (though I agree nothing will come to Disney classic quality for a very, very long time). I only used them as an example to show target audiences, and the difference between the family audience as opposed to the little girl audience.

    And yes, Aristocats big grin

    Some people still find MLP to be aimed too much at young girls though, I fall into this category. I've tried to watch it with a friend who was into it and the whole time it just felt weird, I was watching ponies making jokes and acting odd, and it really just didn't entertain me. The whole time I felt if I was a little girl I could probably enjoy it, but I'm not. I usually give cartoons a try because they were a huge part of my childhood, as well I like to keep up to date one what are pretty good and what are not should I hopefully ever get to have children.

    Oh god, the Siamese cats. Mulan 2, every man is retarded and women must save them! I do remember those Aladin sequels, they were pretty good. The one I preferred was the Thieves one, I was getting kind of sick of Jafar by that point.

    I've been in the process over the last few years of converting all my childhood memories...I mean VHS versions of the classics into modern watchable formats. I was all over the Lion King Blu-ray release a couple months back winking

    It's still pretty common, I won't deny that of the three big cartoons of today (FiM, AT, and RS), Friendship is Magic is by and far the girliest. It's not everyone's cup of tea, and it's why I never outright try and tell someone to watch it. I'll be very upfront about why I personally enjoy it, but I'd never straight up tell someone they have to try and love FiM. That goes against our tolerance policy happy

    This is the more fun way of stating that bronies are the most difficult group to troll happy

    Right, i wasn't trolling or judging, just curious, as plastic said. I haven't seen the show, only notice the large following and didn't understand. I have an unhealthy fascination with star wars & anime & snowboarding & winning ect ect, and will happily spend hours watching the teen titans or reading (not watching) eragon or debating the mysteries of the force (those can get intense). Thanks for your explanation reaper. I'll admit i'm definitely on the soft side so i might even watch it (probably won't admit it if i do though)

    The way I see this is like any other interest we have. We like the souls series we started a forum and a wiki for these games alone. We enjoy darksouls other people enjoy My little pony it is strange but they are people and thus are entitled to their likes and in all honesty are we any better? We have posted thousands of message about darksouls we as Serious_much has already said we are not much different or better

    Let's not turn this into tearing down Forum Pirate, I don't think he meant anything by it. To a lot of people it is pretty abnormal.

    And Forum, don't start talking about Force Philosophies, otherwise I might make a Star Wars discussion thread and nerd out. You won't like me, when I'm nerdy...er.

    I think Johnny may have been being sarcastic (being goofy), hard to tell from what he wrote though

    Carefully butchered a "quote" down to only the parts this response will address winking

    Glad I could help out a bit. All we ever ask for as bronies is that others give the show an open chance regardless of if they end up liking it or not happy

    Also, just out of curiosity, what anime? And hell yeah for Teen Titans, is my sister hadn't taken them with her when she moved outta town I'd still have all 4 seasons on DVD silly
