Brony's? Oh yeah! lol. I already forgot about that. I honestly don't hate on the brony's... I'm sure a good number of them are decent people. Maybe they're into things I'm not, but... I'm sure I'm into things others aren't.
Thank you! I used to feel she got the short end of the stick in the older cartoons because we were supposed to grow up disliking nerds. But I don't get that from the newer show... what little I've seen of it. (It's a good show, I just haven't had time...)
Sorry to say this, but the show Mystery Incorporated ain't that great! It's a proof on that the crew of the show is disrespecting the legacy of Hanna-Barbera, by abusing the formula of the first and third TV series of Scooby-Doo, to virtually exterminating the possibility of that the supernatural elements of franchise really does exist canonically.
And, besides that, there's another continuation error within the series; Scrappy-Doo and Flim-Flam are confirmed to be canon characters, but the episode featuring Vincent Van Ghoul makes it seems like Scooby and Shaggy doesn't recognize him from their past. They also ignored the fact that he's an actual warlock, just to make him more similar to his previous, now-deceased voice actor, and inspiration, Vincent Price.
They also decided to bash a sibling series of the Scooby-Doo franchise, by turning that show's mystery-solving group's mascot-like member, Funky Phantom, into an actor, rather than being an actual ghost, like was in the old series.
Sorry... my tongue was planted firmly in my cheek.
I'm not a slave to older versions of a show when you're re-imaging something (I wouldn't be able to work on Transformers Prime if I were). I grew up with the old scooby doo and was never a big fan. I saw a couple episodes of the new one and it just seemed a lot more fun and enjoyable.
Too bad, that Hasbro ain't much for crossover arcs, otherwise it would have been interesting to see My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Transformers Prime, and/or GI Joe join forces with one another.
Trust me, you could have been able to improve MLP:FiM, by replacing the concept of slapstick humor with a darker plot. Especially with the unintended X-Men-influenced plot of Twilight Sparkle, that was slowly progressing through the two seasons.
