1. It’s so damn cute!
Look at that face! Jesus Christ, I hope she doesn’t want me to do anything illegal.

3. Geek References and Easter Eggs
Is that Thor’s Hammer on that pony’s flank? You’re damn right it is. And the other pic? Why, that’s Dr. Whooves and Rose taking a stroll through the woods. The creators of MLP are huge nerds, and they love the fans, so the show is rife with geek references. Don’t believe me? Watch the video below for a Star Wars clip that will blow the mane off your head:
4. Great Voice Talent
Speaking of geek references, any trekkies out there? Anyone remember Q? Well when the creators made a similar character for the show, who else would they get to play the role other than the original Q, John de Lancie. Other actors worth mentioning are Tara Strong as Twilight Sparkle, Ashleigh Ball as Applejack and Rainbow Dash, Andrea Libman as Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy, and Cathy Weseluck as Spike.
Check out the full list here.
5. And who doesn’t love unicorns?
It’s so fluffy, I’m gonna die!!!
6. Bronies and Pegasisters are cool people
Truth. Btw, check out mylittlebrony.com for all the MLP memes your little heart can handle.
7. The re-re-re-re-re-remixes
The songs can get annoying, but most of them are catchy and awesome. There are also some badass remixes out there, and the Equestria Girls version of the theme song is secretly on my playlist… well, not so secretly now.
8. It’s not all glitter and rainbows
The show is actually really funny, plus those pretty fillies are very complex ladies, teaching morals in unique ways. We could all do to learn a few of their lessons. I’ll be getting off my high horse now. (See what I did there?)
9. Lauren Faust
The creator of such awesome shows as Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends and The Powerpuff Girls is also behind this lovely 30 minute block of programming. WE LOVE YOU, LAUREN!!!
10. Pick your favorite pony
There’s a pony to match every persona. My personal choices, to match my multiple personalities, are as follows: DJ Pon-3 (a woman of few words, but many beats), Sunset Shimmer (the baddest bitch you’ll ever meet) and Princess Celestia (Pastel Rainbow Queen of the Sun). I WILL COSPLAY ALL OF YOU.
