Yeah I’ve seen more and I can see that. I do however think that G1 is the best old series imo. The ponies were cute including the 1986 film. I’ve found that in G4 the ponies just seem to be older and most of the mane 6 feel like women instead of baby ponies and even the cmcs don’t act as childish compared to the originals. I still don’t like G3 or 3.5 as they are quite bland compared to the styles of things like my little pony n friends.

I don't really get adult women from the main six, I get a teenager vibe from them, MAYBE 18-20. Or they're sort of written more in a perspective of how children would see/view adults. A lot of the storylines, sure, as adults we can watch the G4 cartoon and enjoy it but it does come across as a kids cartoon, with adult ponies who look like adults but it's more of how a kid would see an adult. But then again, this opinion is coming from someone who is in her 40's so I'm probably jaded in how I view most cartoons now. As much as I enjoy friendship is magic, it's reached a point in the last year to year and a half where I don't particularly care if I miss an episode or not.

I have never watched, nor do I play to watch any of the other generations. I have seen photos and clips and just, no, the art is terrible, the animation is cheap, and the toys just tip the uncanny valley for me. So no thank you. The marketing ploy was not only obvious, but it was slap you in the face with a tuna obvious. I think I'll go with a little less obvious pandering, if I have to go with pandering at all. But this is Hasbro so be prepared for it.
 

I'm sorry, but what? No seriously, WHAT?  The art is friggin fantastic

I should have been more clear. The ponies. Not the background art. Yes, admittedly the backgrounds are highly colourful and have some creativeness to them, but the ponies; not so much.

Honestly, I never watched the past generations, but from the YouTube videos, pictures, and other sources.

1. The face looks creepy

2. They look like fat horses

3. The scene is too girly?

4. They resemble the creepy toylines

You must love G2 ponies then (LOL!) or sweetheart sisters from G1, or Flutterponies from G1. None of them are what you seem to be referring to when you say they look 'fat' to you.

They look fat right? Like the body is too big and their head

Also, I looked at the G2 one, yeah they are much better than the last generation

Actually, as far as toys go, G1 is far superior than the G2. They do not look fat to me, they look like ponies to me...but your idea of fat is clearly your own idea. What you are saying is fat (meh). It's someone drawing the ponies as well, the above image is not the toy.

The artwork you provided, From left to right, Glory (One of the original G1 unicorns), G1 Sprinkles (winged pegasus that was sold with waterfall playset and also later sold as a mail order), G1 Lickety-Split, and G1 Majesty (sold with the Dream Castle playset and later also sold as a mail order).

Sweetheart Sisters are G1, but they are in a different body mold than what you see in the above artwork, they were never on the cartoon so you would clearly be unaware of what they look like unless you actually did a google search. Flutter Ponies as well do not look like G1's, they are in a different body mold as well, are smaller and had super fragile wings which were quite pretty.

The G2 toys are actually my least favorite toys besides the G4 toys. Much like G4 toys they are not as well made as the G1 and G3 toy line.

 

Needless to say, when talking about My Little Pony, you really need to separate the discussion with me. I don't put a lot of stock in the cartoon, it's more like an accessory in how I view MLP. I know the G4 fans are 100% into the cartoon but I'm the exact opposite. I'm a more tangible person and a collector of the toy. As far as quality goes, style and variety of toys you cannot get any better than the G1 line. The quality of the G4 toy line is terrible compared. I've owned all generation of MLP. I rate the brand based on the toyline. G1 is first, G3 is second, and I'd have to give a tie to G2 and G4 in last place.
