Here's a pink (firefly coloured?) boy for you, amenoo :)


I totally agree with you Pink Rosedust and Megan's cousin, I'm happy to see all kinds of different pony shapes and faces but the style of his just didn't look right for a little girl's show. :/

Also, what bothers me most about the male flowers is their limited colors. Last episode had some good designs but next episode there will again be a new male character they just slap brown on. And muliticolored manes....there are far too little flowers with muliticolored manes.

This so much! Really why can't the boys have pastelly coats? Because that's girly? The show wants to break stereotypes but I've yet to see a pink boy fart in FiM :/ I almost screamed out of happiness when I saw a purple one with white mane in the perfect stallion song
A pink one, who sort of looked like he was based on Firefly popped up in Hurricane Fluttershy but I doubt he'll pop up again.

I don't mind diversity, but the fact that the stars are all gorgeous ponies with no flaws, and there are other ponies who are less beautiful kinda stinks.  I understand wanting to make the main cast beautiful so the show attracts an audience, but then place it in a magic, perfect world where everyone is beautiful.  MLP is fantasy, so you may as well keep it that way. 

It also bothers me that the only time a pony is drawn ugly is if they are meant to be laughed at or criticized or otherwise disliked.  The only semi-exception is Granny Smith, because nobody has done anything rude to her yet.  I just wish they would make her less senile, my great grandma was sharp as a tack well into her 90's, granny smith can be the same.  The bad examples I can think of off the top of my head are the body-builder white peg, the grumpy donkey (doodle?). the two young male unicorns who woke up the ursa minor, Ditzy Doo/:muffin: Pony.

I really could have enjoyed the tornado episode just as much without the white peg's input.

Also, a random thought:  Until the white peg with the tiny wings spoke, I was kinda reminded of the Looney Tune's horse who was simply stylized.  I wouldn't mind if he looked like he does, if he wasn't so stupid.

Sorry but your grandma =/= every old person ever.

Some old people are senile, that's a fact of life. Making her "perfect" will only further enforce the "everypony must be X way to be perfect!" the bronies threw fits about when :muffin: Pony was changed (not that I agree with their tantrums or that mentality, but it would cause further backlash and whining). I've never even seen a complaint about Granny Smith before, so I'm rather stunned. There have also been less/not at all senile senior ponies.

When classic Looney Tunes came to an end, the white horse needed work. Eventually, he landed a minor role on MLP:FiM, hoping it would respark his career, even though the years haven't been especially kind to his figure.

I want this to be true. It's my headcanon now. :D

Yessssssss! Please~! I would love to have some of the more different ponies as brushables. I've been secretly wishing for a Granny Smith and I have to say, if they came out with that muscle boy pony or Apple Bloom's friend (sorry, bad fan, I forgot her name momentarily...:/ But the cute one with glasses! Twist, maybe?) I would jump up and down IRL. ^ ^ I'm already so over the moon that Hasbro is actually releasing Zecora later this year. I love her in the show.
