That's cool. It wasn't intended for the general Whovian population, but rather for those who are also Bronies.

I'm assuming it's kinda like Bromance.

Bro-Ponies = Bronies?

The third entry for the term at Urban Dictionary puts it well enough:

Typically refers to 13-30 year old male fans of the 2010 reboot of the show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, but may also include females (see fillies).

Brony = Bro + Pony

While generally associated with a negative stereotype by outsiders, due to it's former 80's frilly girly-girl twinkle-toed tea-parties and all-female main casting, bronies are attracted to the new show by it's good animation, acting, writing, and humor.

Thanks for the clarifications, everybody. Much appreciated.

But if you have to explain it that much, it ain't funny.

Well, the same could be said about almost anything in this thread, as those who aren't at all familiar with Doctor Who wouldn't understand most of what's been posted here without explanation.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is a show that started on the cable network The Hub last year. It's in between seasons right now.

Understandable. But have you not ever in your adult life enjoyed anything that is mainly intended for children?

I quite enjoy The Sarah Jane Adventures, and ive seen some episodes of Young Justice,but the idea of 20 year old men, watching My Little Pony, what the hell that is just messed up. Fine some kids cartoons can be watchced by adults, but I would not think that of My Little Pony.

It doesnt surprise me one bit that 4chan has some involvement in this, more to the point, how is it that 4chan is so effective at driving web culture.

I shall yet David Mitchell have the last word on this

just replace Doctor Who with My Little Pony ( )

sorry to have dragged the thread off topic, this whole Bronie stuff is confusing and strange to me.

Of course you could also be talking about the idea that Doctor Who is itself a kids show but its not My frecking Little Pony, a cartoon series aimed at 3-8 year old girls, apparntly being watched by 20 year old men, whom I assume are sane, and have the correct amount of brain cells.

it worrys me that there seems to be some crossover between Whovians and Bronies, to the extent that one pony appears to be have named after the show.

As for Transforrmers, I have posted my views on this forum about the Transformers movie before, it seems the success of the Transformers franchise may not be the single most unexplainable thing on the internet.

HM, I like Pirates of Dark Water, Roughnecks, Avatar: The Last Airbender and InuYasha, but, even I draw the line at Care Bears and My Little Pony.

Here's the reason Gredo shot first:
