Top Ten Reasons Why My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic Is the Worst Cartoon Ever


The Top Ten

1 The plot is so boring.

You Bronies have got to check this list out! There are so many errors you guys are not aware of for your so called "awesome" show you brainwashed idiots! I definitely agree with this entire list. Thanks for pointing everything out of this messed up show.

Yes, I agree with this. If there was one sentence explaining most of the shows episodes its: One or all of the Mane 6 make a mistake, use magic to fix it and learn nothing or the same thing over and over again. BORING so lame. The plot needs seeious explaining and the Royal Family, well there's none except 2 bloody princesses that hardly do anything. Don't they have parents or ancestors or anything?! Oh wait, they probably died doing something supposedly bad that was against freindship or died because there was too much. I don't blame them, I probably would have too.

If them Pony Gals were Dudes, then the plot would not be so Boring. Instead of them Fighting (They always Fight), Gossiping (Lame)and Playing with their Pets (Their idea of Fun), they would play Sports, Skate Board, Play Video Games, Go to the Pub (What, that's what we Dudes do.) and Joking around, then I guarantee you that this Show would be 100% Cool.

The plot is boring that I never watch these agian

2 Most of the characters are bland.

I like the series myself, but I do have to agree. It is not so much that it has bland characters or boring plots, but it is the same anyway, so more repetitive than anything else. However, it gets much better in season five, with the utopia society in the cutie map, drama between fluttershy and discord, and especially in slice of life. Hilarious, but with a bit of darkness. And while non brownies may disagree, it does teach kids a bit more about life than what you would think. After all, how is this the worst compared to sponge bob, uncle grandpa, Clarence, ugh I could go on. I know I liked mostly only starwars and other not so girlish this as a kid, but watching the series now, I still find it entertaining none the less.

Looks like Princess Twilight Sparkle's Super Wings will be Propelling her into the Sky while her Lame Friends are still the same with very Poor Character Development. (Especially Pinkie Pie)

Spitfire is far the only interesting character because she is funny and very strict and cool, the rest of the characters are not funny, or interesting.

Only Applejack is great, the others are boring and bland. They're popular for no reason while Applejack is the underrated one.

3 Fluttershy is annoying.

If it's anyone who's annoying, it's PINKIE.

Yes I agree, pinkie annoys me a lot, but in the show even though she is still my favorite pony, I do find myself being annoyed at not her character, but what the creators have done to her. What happened to cute sweet fluttershy? Now all we have is an assertive jerk.

Flutter Shy is so Lame and proves to have Multiple Personality Disorder. One minute she is Innocent and Shy, the next she is Evil and Aggressive/Assertive.

Fluttershy have no VOICE. I am shy and can speak loud

4 Discord is the worst villain ever.

NO! Discord is a character as old as celestial and Luna, and has a more creative purpose than most other villan's goals of taking over the world. He could easily defeat celestia in any battle, and was only defeated by the elements because of his recklessness. Take Sombra, he wanted complete power. Luna, everlasting darkness. (Stupid by the way, how would good grow with no sun? She would starve everyone, making it pointless to rule over the land.) Discord only wanted chaos because that was his species, and he was much smarter than other villains. He could still take care of ponies with the power to summon anything he wanted, while having endless happiness. His one downfall was that he was a bit reckless like I said before, and that he had a soft spot for fluttershy. But all that aside, he had the brains and potential to become a great villian, and had many entertaining episodes. That isn't even all, as he did manage to split up the mane 6, something the girls in rainbow rocks weren't ...more

Nah, Discord ain't that bad. He is cool villain until he sadly too got brainwashed by them ponies twice.

I disagree with this ENTIRE list.

NO NO NO! Hold your little horses [or pony's as like, get it]. DISCORD IS THE BEST VILLON EVER NOT THE worst. If I know any thing it's that DISCOD IS ACE

5 The humor is weak.

Yes I agree in previous seasons, however in slice of life I nearly died from laughter. With the whole Octavia vinyl scene, the gummy talk about life, and secret agent sweetiedrops or whatever, and I like how the humor wasn't around the mane 6's bland problems, but those of the background ponies. Oh and don't forget, hilarious sister hoed between Luna and celestial in that episode also. Even so, if the show is not as funny, it is interesting, creative, and addictive, something we should all be sable to enjoy.

WHAT IS WITH THE WEAK-HUMORED SHOW! All they talk about is friendship. SERIOUSLY! It seems so educational, honestly, it belongs on the trash channel pbs kids. If you watch mlp I suggest you stop and watch other BETTER shows than that like pokemon, winx club, much more! So don't waste your time watching this garbage.

It is not funny when only that Retarded Pink Female Pony (Failed attempt) tries to make this lame excuse of a Show funny. If you want real rich Humour. Watch Looney Tunes.

Honestly, those stupid fluorescent ponies think they are SOOO funny! Especially pinkie pie though. Honestly, every joke sucks on the show. If you want REAL humor, watch Fresh off the boat and Nathan for you.

6 The writing is bad.

The Script Writing makes the Ponies do Unthinkable Things that are all Resolved In The End.

I have never seen a script writing this bad for a child's cartoon.

Some episodes are written very well while others are not. Be more specific if you want this list to be valid.

7 Trixie is terrible.

Lame attempt of a villain.

Let's judge an entire series based on one minor character! Yay logic!

What is Trixie meant to be... A Witch or a Wizard?

She is terrible but why wasent this higher up in the list

8 Princess Luna is terrible.

Princess Luna has a pretty good backstory and leaves you wanting more of her, even if her plan for eternal darkness wasn't thought through all the way. Besides, I think it is celestia who is worse, Luna was just jealous because celestial was more important, because she had his in her shadow for a long time. Besides, who in the right mind would banish their own sibling to a place for a thousand years?

Six words as to why sadly she's not so good anymore (used to like her as a favorite but she's one of my least favorites): Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep?

Princess Luna is a terrible character and really badly constructed, just like the rest of the show the character can be considered cancer.

Luna is pretty annoying!

9 The show isn't fun.

Your argument is Invalid. Children should play in the park and learn how to interact with each other, not watch ugly dull ponies do bad things to each other.

Bronies are so defendant with this show. This is a sign of human stupidity!

The show would be 100000000000000000000% better if the silly girl ponies would be cool dude ponies. Admit it.

All they do is fight - Coffeemilkshakes

10 The show isn't good.

Not the best show ever you brainwashed idiots!

Them stupid Brainwashed Bronies are so Obsessed over their Little Pony Worship that they do not even have the time to look at all the Mistakes that this poor excuse of a "Show" has.

It's just mediocre, but overrated.

The show's alright, but a lot of the fans overhyped it, it's got a lot of flaws and is currently going through seasonal rot.

The Contenders

11 Twilight Sparkle is an annoying know it all who should never have become a Princess.

Twilight used to be good to me, but come seasons 6, 7 and the film and now she's just an unlikable, boring, one dimensional jerk with anger issues, and in the film, manipulated her friends to achieve her own plan (yeah, I KNOW the whole "desperate times" thing and "we say things we don't mean to when we're angry" but that's no excuse, it was out of character and ruined her character).

Yeah twilight so annoying

Totally agree.

She’s a gay nerd

12 Rainbow Dash is overrated.

If someone says that they hate her, then her fans will cyber bully you and you can never escape them, u want to be with other haters that agree with me. I hate rainbow dash, worst pony ever and worst character ever. She is making people evil, us haters need to stop this, rainbow dash is evil. If only there was a cartoon more people will like with no evil hypnotizing characters, I would be so happy and if rainbow dash loses popularity then people will be good again, and I want this to happen mostly for no more cyber bullying. Who is with me?

She is extremely overrated! I despise her with a burning passion! - nintendofan126

She is a failed attempt of Cool.

I hate her so much. She's only overrated because of her looks and her being a tomboy or whatever. She's a stuck up, selfish and really rude bragger

13 It's only for little girls

My Little Pony is so bad that even little girls hate My Little Pony.

This Show and Bronies is a very clear sign of Human Stupidity and you know it.

Only 90% of the Little Girls like the Toys. They hate Poor Cheap Animated Atrocities like My Little Pony.

Completely agree

14 Hasbro not hiring Nowacking to voice Vinyl Scratch (DJ Pon-3)

There's a lot of DJ's out there.

As much as I love Nowacking and her voicing of Vinyl, I doubt she'd want to do it as a career, plus I've heard she hates the brony fandom.

Neither Shrillex did not like girly shows.

Well yes

15 King Sombra is a lame villain

All the Villains are Lame if they easily get defeated by an Atrocious Rainbow and Crystals.

Why yes, yes he is.

Don't agree

16 Rainbow Dash is a bad influence

That is no Excuse to be Rude and Disrespectful. If she was Real, she would be Beaten and Clobbered by now.

Rainbow Dash is a Tom Boy (Though even Dudes do not treat each other like she does.)

Rainbow Dash just brags and is careless. SHE DOESN'T EVEN FOLLOW HER ELEMENT!

Rabid Bronies > Rainbow Dash
Sad truth.

17 The Cutie Mark

What Was Once An Awesome Symbol, Has Manifested Into a Cutie Mark That Corrupts Ponies.

I hate the way the Creators Demonize Cutie Marks.

That's why The cutie mark crusaders got picked on by Diamond Tiara about it

18 Same lesson over and over

Children learn by interacting with each other and playing in the park, not watching ugly ponies do terrible things that should be banned.

Not really, sometimes it is learning to accept yourself, sometimes it is learning quality over quantity, and sometimes it is learning to be kind other people. Almost every episode has something different to offer.

They learn the SAME lesson OVER and OVER, and in the next episode they act the same ponies that do it the wrong way, AGAIN


How do you even learn lessons from this cartoon

19 The voice acting is traditionally annoying

The Main 6 Voices Are Awful And They Sound Stereotypical.

Rainbow Dash sounds like she's mimicking, Rarity sounds British and PINKIE PIE sounds like a helium.

It is excepted in cartoons when sound was not good (Like Mickey Mouse 1920) but NOT in a Modern Cartoon.

Le me watching this show
"At least it was'nt so bad"
*Horsey scream*
Oh God why!

20 Terrible animation

What I expected in a Good Cartoon:

1. Good/ Rich Animation

2. Colorful

3. Bright

4. Good Quality (Like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1987 and 2003)

What I Got:

1. Poor/Cheap Animation

2. Dull

3. Pale/Faded/Dull Colors (Like Rainbow Dash's Yellow Streak)

4. Bad Quality

The animation looks so cheap and horrible.

What I Expect in a Child's Cartoon: (Like "Looney Tunes" and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" 1987/2003)

1. Rich Animation by Experts

2. Colourful

3. Bright

4. Wonderful Background

5. Good Quality

What I Got:

1. Cheap Animation by Amateurs (A Baby can do better then that.)

2. Bland (Possibly the most Bland Child's Cartoon that I ever saw.)

3. So Dull (Especially Rainbow Dash's Yellow Streak)

4. Lame Terrible Background

5. Poor Quality

The colors of their Rainbow is so Wrong. A Rainbow does not consist of:

1. Hot Pink

2. Peach (Pale) Orange

3. Pale Cream Yellow (Should be Bright Yellow)

4. Turquoise (Wait, where is Green? )

5. Purple (Yeah, but not Really Dark Purple.)

6. White? Where is Green and Indigo?!

Expectation for good shows:
- Outstanding Movements
-Bright Colors( like Hanna-Barbara and Ruby-Spears )
-Good Quality( like WB's Looney Tunes or MGM's Tom and Jerry)
-Great Storylines (like Spongebob or Rugrats)
-Great Voiceovers(like Tom Kenny or Mel Blancs)
-Wonderful moments (like Disney movies)
-Backgrounds (like Beatle's Yellow Submarine)

What modern cartoonists have:
-Cheap animations (like Breadwinners or Paddy the Pelican)
-Dull colors (like TTG)
-Too Bright Qualities
-Bland Plots
-Terrible Voiceovers (along with shrieks and screams that may bleed your eardrums)
-Chunky Backgrounds (like Tom and Jerry 2014 which is done in After Effects)

Results for great cartoons:
That is the most beautiful thing that I've ever seen!
