* AccidentalAesop: Sort of. The reason for most of the controversy surrounding the episode is due to the Aesop being interpreted as "Don't try to figure out something you don't understand; you'll only look like an idiot" and "You should just accept what you're told and not try to test it." Some fans even took it to the point of the episode being a commentary on religion. Lauren Faust clarified the idea of the episode was meant to be "there are some things we may never understand or be able to prove, but that isn't a bad thing, mysteries like this are part of life and we just have to go with them". It should also be noted that Dave Polsky himself is an atheist who has said he believes everything is explainable by science. This starts to have really UnfortunateImplications when you consider [[MotherNatureFatherScience the gender issues around science]] and that this is a show aimed at little girls.

* AlternateAesopInterpretation: Several.
** "ScienceIsBad"
** "Don't attempt to understand things; just accept them."
** "The purpose of science is to find the truth, not to prove your preconceived notions correct."

* BrokenBase: This episode was the most divisive episode of season 1. Many fans considered it the funniest episode of the season, but it also drew a great deal of heat due to the [[AnAesop Aesop]] being misinterpreted as being about religion and atheism.
** Some fans also objected to the moral because they thought it presented an anti-intellectualist viewpoint. ("It's wrong to attempt to understand things. Just accept them at face value.") Lauren Faust was quick to apologize for this, saying she would never want to give kids that kind of message.
** This episode is a GuiltyPleasure for some in light of the humor that's showcased throughout.
** Some fans liked the episode enough to where they said it didn't deserve CreatorBacklash. They do, however, draw the line with Twilight's HumiliationConga and ButtMonkey treatment in the episode.
*** There are even at least [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x11kmto_feeling-pinkie-keen-experimental-edit_shortfilms four]] [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x11kn10_feeling-pinkie-keen-experimental-edit-2_shortfilms different]] [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x11t8rq_feeling-pinkie-keen-experimental-edit-3_shortfilms edited]] [[http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x11t9i6_feeling-pinkie-keen-experimental-edit-4_shortfilms versions]] which attempt to put Twilight in a more [[TheWoobie sympathetic]] light.

* LostAesop: In a rather different sense. According to WordOfGod, the moral was supposed to be something like "something can be true even though you don't understand it, and that's okay", but needless to say, a great deal of the fandom didn't see that message as being very clear.
