  1. Recently I found out that both My Little Pony Friendship is Magic and Transformers Robots in Disguise have been getting showing signs of getting screwed over by both Discovery Family and Cartoon Network respectively so I thought I'd pitch in my two cents on the matter. It looks like the recent change from the Hub to Discovery Family has not been to kind to My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. While it hasn't been completely screwed over yet, it's been showing warning signs that the network has been messing with it since the fifth season aired. First off the show has very rarely been getting any advertisement on the channel and as I've been noticing that when a new episode airs it doesn't get any advertisement. Instead we've been getting advertisements of the season premier which aired weeks ago and it has been getting passed off as a new episode. This has been happening during every break of the new episode and fans haven't been very amused. Luckily though, the show's ratings have been very healthy so I don't think we have to worry about it getting cancelled. After all, Equestria Girls 3, Season 6 and the big 2017 movie has been announced so I think the show is safe for a while. Meanwhile my biggest concern is with Transformers: Robots in Disguise. Now, as a lot of you know I am a big Transformers fan so when this show aired I, of course, gave it a watch and of course I enjoyed it. I loved the new ideas the show brought us. Instead of a the usual war between Autobots and Decepticons being led by Optimus Prime and Megatron respectively, (of course as this is a sequel to Transformers Prime we're going to get something different) we get Bumblebee leading his own squad of Autobots hunting down Decepticon fugitives with one of them, Steeljaw, wanting to change Earth into a paradise for rogue Decepticons. Unfortunately it's getting screwed over by Cartoon Network by getting no advertisement and getting put into what's known as the Saturday Morning Death Slot which would be 6:30 AM EST or 5:30 for those suckers who live in the CST time zone, a time where nobody that isn't an insomniac would be awake to watch it. And the real kicker in all this is that I saw this coming, months before the show even aired. As soon as I read in an article that Robots in Disguise was going to air on Cartoon Network I quite disappointed because I know how Cartoon Network treats its action-based shows. As soon as I read it I knew that the show would be cancelled somewhere down the road because I knew how Cartoon Network treated one of its predecessors Transformers Animated, which was pretty much screwed over in the same fashion. Other than its premier episodes Transformers Animated barely ever saw any advertising on the network and was also shoved onto the Saturday Morning Death Slot. Fortunately the show did get three seasons but any hopes for the planned fourth season was crushed as it cancelled during a conflict between Hasbro and Walmart over the toylines, which is one of the reasons why I detest how Western Animation is handled in North America. Luckily afterwards it did seem that Hasbro smartened up as after Animated we got Transformers: Prime, one of the best entries in the franchise, and it along with several of Hasbro's other IPs were put on the Hub, where it enjoyed three full seasons and a movie that ended the show on a high note. So, when after the treatment of Animated and the success of Prime, when I saw that Hasbro once again let Cartoon Network handle Transformers I couldn't help but say to myself "What the hell are they thinking?" because I knew that the show was going to get this type of treatment. As much as I enjoy the show, I'll be surprised if it gets past its second season. I despise Cartoon Network not just because of its treatment of Transformers, but its treatment of its action shows as a whole. This is the same network that cancelled Young Justice because women were watching it. It cancelled Sym-bionic Titan for not selling enough toys, never mind the fact that there weren't any toys made for the show to begin with. Green Lantern along with Young Justice were dealt with frequent hiatuses, had their entire block pulled on the very same day their new episodes were supposed to air and then got cancelled after they finally got back on the air. The worst example I have seen by far was their treatment of Beware the Batman. Not even halfway through its first season, it was pulled and replaced to give the abysmal Teen Titans Go another time slot. The show-runner had to go through hoops in order to get it to finish airing, eventually having to resort to putting the episodes on Amazon's UK streaming service in order to do so. This opened my eyes to something, unless your cartoon is a silly comedy, Cartoon Network will treat it like crap and will come up with the most insane excuses in order to cancel it. I think it's safe to say at this point Cartoon Network is comparable to Fox. Yes, the same Fox that's infamous for cancelling shows that aren't an immediate hit. The same network that screwed over Firefly, Doctor Who and The Crow under bullshit circumstances. The same network that won't give shows the time of the day unless they're either, the Simpsons or a Seth MacFarlane animated show, a sports program, a presidential speech or even their far right-wing corporatist propaganda station thinly veiled as "news". Yes, Cartoon Network has gotten that bad. Now according to Paul Dini and Kevin Smith in this article here: http://ca.ign.com/ar...lued-over-girls the reason for some of these cancellations as I mentioned earlier with Young Justice is that this network holds on to this primitive belief that girls should not enjoy action shows, only boys can. Their excuse is that women don't buy toys, never mind that they could sell them something else. They have also insulted the intelligence of both genders by saying that "women should never portrayed as smarter than the guys, they should always be a step behind" and that they should always have that "goofy boy humor" once again proving Gene Roddenberry right, as he has been before during his struggles with the Network over Star Trek, that network executives are complete idiots who are out of touch with their audience, have no clue what the audience likes and think themselves superior.
  2. The moment The Hub was announced to become Discovery Family, I knew Discovery Communications wasn't the best company for Hasbro to choose for their new network. But of all the TV owners, why did Hasbro choose Discovery for the joint partnership? Why not NBCUniversal?, outside of Sprout, they have no general kids/family channel. Why not A&E Networks? They have no kids' network period. I'm not sure why Hasbro thought the company who specializes in reality shows and edutainment documenteries was the best option to parter for a general entertainment kids network.
  3. Make it a timeshare network with Discovery Family ala Cartoon Network and Adult Swim. The Hub could run from 5am to 7pm for kids, with DF covering the rest for families. Nick did the same with Noggin when The N was introduced.
  4. Because I don't get the Hub here in Canada, I have to watch it on the YouTubes. (This feels like cheating) I remember watching a rerun of it on TV one time in the 90's, but nothing much else about it. I sometimes wonder why I was born too late when all the good stuff was about to disappear from television. Is there anyone who actually likes and watches ALF besides me? I find it to be still funny after years, even if I never saw much of it back then. "You are no longer a cat, you are a bagel." LO F-ing L!
  5. According to The Hub, October is now officially Applejack month! https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=557483060967447&set=a.155347071181050.33326.119249468124144&type=1&relevant_count=1&ref=nf As a fan and watcher of MLP:FiM and a big Applejack fan, I would like to congratulate her and her fans and friends. She is truly deserving of such an honor. Go out there and show them your best Applejack!
  6. Any ya'll ever watch any other shows on the Hub, I watched one called "The adventures of chuck and friends" yesterday, and I like transformers prime.
  7. For all of you in the United States. I wanted to mention that season 3 of Pound Puppies premieres on the Hub June 1st, at 9:00 am Eastern/6:00 am Pacific. Now, I've said it before, and I'll say it again; The Hub's Pound Puppies is a good solid show, It has appealing characters, a great voice cast, sharp humor, and sweet, touching storylines. I will always stand by that, and I do not care what the haters say. It should also be noted that if some bronies (particularly the adult males) are willing to watch a show with candy-colored ponies targeted at little girls, but are not willing to give Hub's Pound Puppies a shot, then they are being hypocrites. The humor on Pound Puppies is just as good. Particularly thanks to John DiMaggio, who voices Niblet the sheepdog. Every episode of Pound Puppies to date is available on Netflix streaming, just keep something in mind; The first 7 episodes of season 1 have rough, rigid animation, however, episodes 8-present are animated by DHX Media, the same studio that animates MLP: Friendship is magic. So starting with episode 8, the animation for the series is clean, fluid, and smooth. So, if you don't like rough, rigid animation, then I highly suggest that you start with episode 8. So again, Pound Puppies season 3 premieres June 1st on The Hub!
  8. It's been a long time since I've posted here, and I don't intend to stay long, but I wanted to highlight something; Here is a fun, short video that a Pound Puppies fan (not me) made. It's from the season 2 episode "There's Something About Camelia." If you like it, please share it.
  9. I'm not sure if anyone is even going to care about this, but its worth a shot for the fans who are interested; As some of you may know, there is currently a Pound Puppies DVD available called "Homeward Pound". It includes 5 episodes from season 1, and the bonus feature, "Learn to draw Lucky" And there is another DVD that will be released October 16, 2012, called "Super Secret Pup Club." It will contain episodes from both seasons 1 and 2. Along with the bonus feature, "Learn to draw Rebound" If any fans are interested, here are the U.S. amazon.com links for them; http://www.amazon.co..._bxgy_mov_img_b http://www.amazon.co...ref=pd_sxp_f_pt Remember, purchasing DVDs is a great way to support a show.
  10. I'm not sure how many bronies here have heard about this, since some bronies seem to have preconceived notions about other Hub shows, therefore, ignore them and don't bother to do research on them, but in season 2 of Pound Puppies, there was a great song called "Barlow" from the episode of the same name. The music was composed by Daniel Ingram, and the song lyrics were by the episode's writer, Alan Hanson. The character of Barlow was voiced by John DiMaggio; Daniel Ingram also composed the music for a sea shanty ("Blow the Dog Down") from the Pound Puppies episode "Salty." (With lyrics by Merriwether Williams) I also assume that most bronies here know that Daniel Ingram and Steffen Andrews compose the background music for Pound Puppies. It's also worth nothing that according to a facebook post, Ingram will compose songs for Pound Puppies season 3; http://www.facebook.com/dannyimusic/posts/498138900233687
  11. Hey all, As you might know, I started a petition to get a soundtrack for MLP:FiM released back in April 2011 through PetitionOnline. It had an impressive turnout with more than 6,200 signatures... unfortunately, it wasn't very effective at providing change to see it happen. However, with MLP:FiM now celebrating its second year anniversary and the fandom getting hyped for season 3, I feel that now is the time to reboot the petition on Change.org, a medium far more effective than PetitionOnline for a couple of reasons: - Every signature the petition will receive generates an automatic e-mail sent to three Hasbro internal addresses, including the Head of Marketing / Public Relations for Hasbro Studios. - Easy to share to your friends via e-mail, Facebook, and Twitter; change can happen faster when getting others involved becomes a simpler process. My goal with this reboot is, at the very least, to see open acknowledgement from Hasbro and/or The Hub that a soundtrack is being produced (though not necessarily to be released right away). I am aware that a fan asked about a soundtrack release at the recent NYCC panel, to which Mike Vogel (Vice President of Development for Hasbro Studios) responded: " ." However, Hasbro executives were present at the panel and there were similar answers given to other sensitive fan questions ("mmmaybe"; "sounds good!"; "we don’t know"), so this does not necessarily provide 100% confirmation. Why else do we need a soundtrack? I spoke with Daniel Ingram about that in person a few months ago (quotes are mine): "If a soundtrack CD ever does come out professionally (one that does not slap all of the TV mixes of the songs together as a means of a quick cash-in), not only will a number of songs be heard in full as they were written and intended to be heard by Daniel, but their overall sound will be greatly improved and heard like never before." This is because "two different mixes of all of his songs take place in post production - one mix in 5.1 surround that is heard in the final product of the episode, and another mix in stereo that sounds radically different and is meant to be used and heard only in case a soundtrack CD ever materializes." Daniel has also said that a lot of material ends up being cut for the final TV versions and (as of late July 2012) he does not know anything about Hasbro releasing a soundtrack album. So, please - sign the petition, send it out to your friends, share it, tweet it, reblog it, whatever. Do your part to ensure that the petition gets as many signatures as possible! I'm counting on all of you to make it happen! https://www.change.org/en-CA/petitions/hasbro-studios-the-hub-release-a-soundtrack-for-my-little-pony-friendship-is-magic-2 Cheers, Senn555 Special thanks to @@Feld0 for proofreading / editing my petition writeup~ Post image used with permission courtesy of Episkopi: http://episkopi.deviantart.com/art/Friendship-is-Magic-Wallpaper-252065174 http://episkopi.deviantart.com/art/FiM-Wallpaper-Pack-252412420
  12. For those who are interested, there now finally toys available for The Hub's Pound Puppies show. Here is a two-page list from Hasbro.com of all of the Pound Puppies toys that are currently available; http://www.hasbro.co...matchallpartial (And PLEASE, be respectful here, do NOT post that stupid meme, if you do, I will report your post. Most people who say that meme don't even watch Pound Puppies anyway. so its very disrespectful.)
  13. And I have to say it was pretty good! You guys should definately check it out. many people dismiss the show without watching it because "its a dumb kids show." But you know what else is a dumb kids show? My Little Pony. And you all seem to like that, right? So I guess just because its a 'dumb kids show' dosent mean its bad, right? If watching MLP has taught me anything, its that adults can like childrens programming, just as children can like adult programming. so, yeah, just watch it with no expectations, and im sure youll like it!
  14. For those who are interested, season 2 of Pound Puppies starts June 2, 2012 on The Hub. So be sure to watch! By the way, I realize that I talk about Pound Puppies a lot, but its only because I want to give the show some support, I do still like MLP: Friendship is Magic, but MLP already has tons of support on the Internet. Pound Puppies has many of the same elements that MLP has.
  15. So i just wanted to express that i got really worried about the new Care Bears show, i mean its just a : "hey if we make new little girls show, it will happen the same as mlp! more grown men fandom!" I think it should be shame on the hub , but well what can i do, the worriedness came when i thougt to myself: "what if i like it, i coulnt take it, be part of two little girls fandoms, being a men, mlp is awesome, but two are too much" I just wanted to know what do you think about the coming show, and one more thing, after seeing the first screenshot i got a lot less worried
