See You Later, Allicorn by TexasUberAlles See You Later, Allicorn by TexasUberAlles
The exact point at which My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic (Generation 4.0) "jumped the shark" remains a subject of hot debate; for some it was Season 3 Episode 13: "Magical Mystery Cure", for others Season 5 Episode 1: "More Human Than Human", and for some Season 6 Episode 4: "Sea Ponies Need Not Apply". It is generally agreed, however, that by the time of Season 8 Episode 12: "See You Later, Allicorn", toy-based story directives issued by the Hasbro Marketing Department had become so bizarre and incomprehensible as to render the show unwatchable. While few historians would say that the multimedia extravaganza surrounding the premiere of Season 9 was *solely* responsible for the brief but horrific war with Canada, it certainly *contributed* to the atmosphere of hatred and intolerance which sparked the terrible conflict.

I actually once thought up of a My little pony episode focused around Apple Bloom and SNAILS. It was called "Sea Pony out of water."

If the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy had an entry on Friendship is Magic, it would read exactly like the description.

You know, I'd probably want to be a princess, too, so I can hardly blame Gummy. Has anyone started cracking jokes about Princess Promenade yet?

Proportionally, the alicorns have longer and narrower horns than standard unicorns. I forget whether the petty royalty like Fleur de Lis and Blueblood have longer horns, but The Sisters and Cadance definitely do.

this is the result of marketing gone wild... guys that sit all day in a board room looking at figures on a pie chart that's idea of fun is organizing their desk and the TV show they watch is CNN's quarterly market updates... they wouldn't even recognize the stuff they are marketing without seeing their company logo on the product. They have no kids, no life outside of work, and haven't had a feeling other than anger or greed in the last 20 years.

Hasbro listens to these people in the hopes of making a buck and we get things like what you linked as a new toyline made by Chinese kids in a factory for 2 cents per toy out of the cheapest materials and least amount of paint then shipped here and sold for $20 each.

I love the show but hate the greed behind it. It's why when Lauren left we get this kinda crap. Well it was nice run while it lasted but its the end of the show. They are already down to 13 episodes a season and ready to call it quits after season 4.

Getting a little angry there buddy, calm down. I don't see why people go and balantly insult Hasbro staff because of this. There was a similar shitstorm when the royal wedding announced a new alicorn. Give some credit to the writers, they haven't let us down so far. Just my 2c

new characters is one thing, changing existing characters because someone wants to sell toys and just glues wings on existing toys is a totally different thing.

the writers have let me down 6 times since the shows beginning. mostly in season 3. show has gone to hell since Lauren and Ami has left. the current writers don't know how to write for a series all the episodes they make are stand alone episodes that you could place anywhere in a timeline of the show because its their style. They also don't stick to lore or continuity which lessens the quality of the show. Hasbro makes it all worse by forcing them to add new toylines into the show no matter if it fits or not.

This is why most us fans of the show are mad. I like to compare this move to Star Wars and George "Toyboy" Lucas milking it for what he can then when toy sales drop he sells his entire company to Disney... Star Wars was great back in the 70's before Toyboy started to add and edit them and make mini series and cartoons around them (which he started to do in the early 80's with the ewoks). All the fans of the movies said just like you did and said to give the writers and Lucas a chance... as it snowballed it got worse and worse rewriting the lore of the Star Wars universe changing what the force was and even the back stories of characters and bringing characters back to life when he pleased to sell more toys. This milking went on so long we eventually end up with Jar Jar Binx. it was 30 years of milking but it shows what a money hungry toy company can do to a great story when they chop it up and rape it just to make more money.

The (apparent, at least) lack of continuity in S3 is almost certainly a corporate directive as well; that was obviously one of the concessions Lauren Herself had to make in S1, where there was a running theme of the Gala coming up but almost all of the episodes could be run out of order without disturbing the flow much. That's just the nature of toy-based programming, and when you have to negotiate with suits to get anything made, episode-to-episode continuity is often one of the things that ends up getting left behind. That they've been able to have such an obvious progression of character development anyway is a testament to how amazing the writing is.

The only times I've felt let down by the writers were May The Best Pet Win (which sends a toxic message about giving in to creepy stalkers who don't understand that "no" means "NO") and Mmmystery On The Friendship Express, where everyone acted shitty and cruel and out of character.
