They also told Lauren Faust that they couldn't have more G1-ish ears (like, more triangular) because "sharp angles are for boys, rounded shapes are for girls."  Wh-what?

Well, this kind of logic is just chilling. I fear for the worst regarding G5 now. ._.

I'm not much of a fan of pearly ponies; they give me a bit of a Silent Hill vibe, like how everyone always seems to have really gross, clammy skin. :|

THIS. What really bugs me is when the eyes are pearly too. It makes it hard to see their eyes and it doesn't make sense for the eyes to be pearly in the first place.

That's an interesting way of looking at things.

I don't care for them either.

Your gonna tell me that G4 Pinkie Pie doesn't sound like an insane, screeching chipmunk on helium?  I find that hard to believe.

At least  G3 Pinkie doesn't crank it up past 11.

 Shining Armor sounds like a smug dude-bro.

Fluttershy's timid voice is incredibly fake and forced.

The thing about Pinkie Pie is that she's used in moderation with the rest of the group. It's not terrible  24/7 like in g3 where they think constant noise is necessary to keep a kid's attention.  :rolleyes:

Switch that around. G4's voice is painful to the ears and I've seen sugar rushed toddlers who didn't act  that hyper and insane. G3 Pinkie was  happy n giggly, but not absolutely awful to watch and she knew when to be mellow.

I liked Pinkie Pie more when her character had more depth instead of a constant running gag of silly faces and acted really crazy all the time.  in Too Many Pinkie Pies Pinkie realized the consequences of her actions and even came up with contest idea when she realized the Pinkie clones were making her lose her friends.

I completely agree with you on that. what in the world compelled them to pearlize the eyes?

I agree about G4 Pinkie degenerating into a one-dimensional and often abrasive (such as in instances where her silly actions repeatedly hurt a friend's feelings.. despite her being established as not having a mean bone in her body and caring about her friends' feelings and opinions considerably) gag character in later seasons.. It's a mark of the show's writing quality decaying from fatigue as it goes on.

I enjoy the G3 cartoon, what I've seen of it. It's sappy, but I don't find anyone's voice overly high-pitched and characters treat each other decently. And I liked Razzaroo's speech quirk of saying "Yes, yes, yes" - that actually compelled me to buy her.

Management-enforced laziness, probably. Pearlizing the eyes would be simpler and cheaper than masking them off when applying the pearlized finish.

I think So-Softs are wonderful and cuddly and people who deflock them "just because" are vandalizing meanies.

I have to admit, I'm fully aware the G3 movies were bad but god do I love them.
Thistle Whistle's speech impediment was so endearing, too! Speaking of Razaroo. Her whistle-lisp made me want her pony sooo badly as a kid because I found it adorable. Never got her, but when I got Wind Whistler as a kid that's how I made her talk, too.

G3 ponies had a surprising amount of depth to their personality, when they weren't backgrounders. Kimono and Minty for example?
I'm also Esbayne on the MH Arena and everywhere else.
You can find me on Ponyisland.
