* The creator of this show has said that she wants this to be popular not just with little girls but also with little boys and their parents. Now we already have many [[PeripheryDemographic adult males watching it,]] but do we have any confirmed cases of little boys who are fans of ''MyLittlePony''? Is this show raising a generation of boys who will be more willing to watch shows like ''HidamariSketch''? (Note: I mean ones that HAVEN'T hit puberty yet.)

** Out of curiosity, where would they find shows like HidamariSketch assuming they don't watch anime?

* Would they ever do an ArtShift episode, say giving it the animation style of (for example) ''RegularShow'', ''{{Archer}}'' or ''[[WesternAnimation/ThePinkPanther The Pink Panther]]'' or would that fail to work with the show's target demographic? Mind you, it ''is'' SomethingCompletelyDifferent I suppose for the show..

** [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winged_unicorn The Other Wiki]] currently credits PiersAnthony with the first verifiable use of the term. (It also suggests the more straightforward derivation "alacorn" from Latin "ala", wing, and "cornus", horn, as a possible alternative among others for the more technical-minded among us.) In any case, language evolves; the fandom may for all we know ''establish'' "alicorn" as a proper term for winged unicorns in the public mind yet, if it isn't there already.

to:

** Calling her Derpy again would most likely get backlash from the MoralGuardians, and at this point Hasbro knows that it doesn't matter ''what'' she's called, because the fandom ''and'' the show staff call her Derpy. So they just don't bother.

Added DiffLines:

** Promotion for both the show and the toyline is handled by Hasbro's marketing department, and they aren't always on the same page with DHX. IIRC, Twilicorn was used in some promotional pictures, and as a result DHX ''had'' to reveal Twilight was getting her wings. For what it's worth, this sort of thing has happened a lot during the show's run, and DHX isn't too happy with it. M.A Larson was particularly upset when nearly half of the 100th episode was spoiled in preview clips.

to:

** Adding to that, Tara Strong said that she originally intended to fly back and forth to record her voices. But she just doesn't like being away from her children for too long (they were eight and six respectively when the show first started, so it's understandable). She's said that this reason is also why she rarely voices other characters besides Twilight. Producers just prefer to have all the actresses together in the studio. Tara doing the voice separately is easily workable - trying to do the singing separately would be just impossible.




to:

*** Possible, since her hair is in a braid. It could easily be a clip-in hairpiece to go with the outfit.




to:

** Because men are not as shallow as the media likes to narrow things down to.



** Well in Season 5 we discover that Big Macintosh dreams of becoming an alicorn. So it could be possible.




to:

** {{Flanderisation}}. It can happen in canon too.




to:

** And it's possible that the toys are made before the packaging. So she's already pink before they see a picture of her white.

** I personally think she sounds more like Cree Summer, especially when she voiced [[KidsNextDoor Numbah 5]], wince they both have that odd, scratchy undertone.

* Look I think it's great that a show can have a Periphery Fandom, and that people can look past a show being too fit for the opposite gender, but I just have to say as an outsider, just how on earth did this show get the massive Periphery Fandom it has? Most of my male friends on DeviantART are in ''love'' with this show, and I haven't met a single girl who's admitted to watching it. I don't think it's bad, just confusing and I'd like an answer is all. On top of that, this show is relatively new, and it's already skyrocketing! And it has its own EnsembleDarkHorse page, which having so many kind of goes against the spirit of the trope (in which one or few characters are singled out as favorites).
