  1. 1. Have you noticed the massive head shaking in MLP?



Recommended Posts

Okay I know this is strange but while watching some pony episodes with a couple friends from the forums I've noticed there are so many ponies that head shake like crazy. For example:

Yep, I notice it mostly since the animation blurs like crazy when they shake and it makes my eyes go a bit dizzy.

It's weird, have you noticed that many times throughout the show, many ponies make the exact same "squee" sound?

 

I know it's strange, but I can't be the only one who's noticed this!

Just one of the many cute things about the show. The animation style really helps to make the characters quite expressive. XD

, I moved this over to Show Discussion since it is specific to an adorable animation effect in the show. Also, love the Rarity one.

Its just the ponies being well.. ponies I guess. Animals do like to shake their heads a lot for whatever reason. :wacko:

Well actually many animals that don't have hands shake their heads in a similar manner as that..... Horses specifically will shake their heads if something is irritating that facial area, or if they are mad.

I've seen some comments (elsewhere, on Timone & Pumba, I think it was) that animals are harder to show emotions because of lack of facial features.  They've got to work w what they've got. Plus as NyanDash pointed out, horses do shake their heads a lot.  It means "I'm stressed" or "Don't do that (or else)"

 

I'm not super familiar w horses but I did grow up in the country & learned the hard way "Don't bother Mr Horse if he's acting like that"

No I haven't really noticed that but you're right now that you mentioned it.  Maybe they're warming up for the next What Is Love PMV?  :wacko:

I think it's reused animation, kind of like how this facial expression is used often..

This. Give em a break animation ain't easy kids. Just be thankful they have the thoughtfulness to reuse good animations ;)

Part of the animation style, to be all crazy!

But maybe this only happened in the early season. I noticed a lot of old cartoon animation references in Season 1 and Season 2. In the later seasons however, a lot of new unique animation started to show up!
