How sad to learn that My Little Pony, the cartoon series based on the much-loved toys, has provoked a nasty row. “Bronies” – members of the adult, mostly male, fan base for the pony models – are distressed that Derpy, an adorably slow-witted character, has been given a new voice to make her seem “less mentally challenged”. Hasbro, makers of the show, didn’t want to seem to be mocking the disabled – but the Bronies think they’re reducing “diversity” with the changed voice.
Who can guide us through this ethical minefield? If only there were a senior Anglican bishop in the London area who was a secret Brony, dressing his toy animals in the academic dress corresponding to his honorary doctorates. But I must shut up now, because I’ve already said too much…
So I would assume everyone has seen the new episode, if not skip the text and go look at comics. But if you did, you may have caught a few things that were thrown in for us adult fans. Namely when Fluttershy is at the Market. First off we gladly saw Derpy in the background trying to buy asparagus and getting turned down by the merchant. Its good to see she wasn’t genocided from the episode. Bonus is her saddle bags have a muffin on them. Also when they are looking at Fluttershy’s shopping list, if you watch the background to the left, you’ll see Pipsqueak go running through. So we can at least tag him as not being eaten by Luna. A third thing you can ask your friends, I get the feeling if I was to say it, some PC buttwipe would get their knickers in a knot. Yeah, I”m a cynical a-hole, I’m well aware of that. I’m also very PC, the normal kind, the kind that doesn’t freak the f’ out and get the Wal-Mart employee fired because she accidentally said “Merry Christmas” instead of Happy Holidays.
Comics behind the page break, as I’ve been finding this plus somewhat sloshy in scroll speed. I’m thinking too much junk in the trunk (or well the front page).
And as always, Sunday is my day off. Enjoy it people.
Thanks to Mr. Chordash who also gave us some of the other insider details about the upcoming McDonalds Toys, here is a preview of the first four to reach his store. The one thing I did not catch is that they are slightly different this year. The ones sold last year had a comb that acted as a base for the pony to stand in. Seems this year they are kind of “keyring” style, as the comb acts as a handle when you clip it to their head. I can foresee some people might not like this, as you can see from the pictures, they now have brain tumors growing out of their skulls…
Further detail from Mr. Chordash (via the comments on this article) says the promotion for the toys starts March 9th for US and Canada, and starts with Pinkie Pie & Rarity. For people outside of the US/Canada, you can check out this thread on PonyFortress2.com where Mr. Chordash is helping people outside of the US/Canada get their hands on some McD ponies.
When Fluttershy becomes tired of being pushed around for too long, she decides to seek some assertiveness training from self-help guru Iron Will, and with the help of her new teacher, she quickly transforms her unsure ways.
