G3/Core 7 Why do so many people hate generation 3?

Recommended Posts

Generation 3 is just okay in my opinion, its a children cartoon for little girls, all of the gender stereotypes for that time period are included. Nobody wants to talk about generation 3.5 because here were it all went downhill before Faust saved a sinking ship.

Generation 1 was good (probably even more hardcore then gen 4 ever was)

Generation 1.5-2 nobody wants to talk about that and people pretend it doesn't exist

I'm not sure what you are talking about with the 1.5-2??? Generation 2 didn't have a cartoon, just to clear up the confusion, I have no clue what 1.5 is.

 

For your history lesson

G1 1981-1995 (this includes MLP Tales; which I'm gonna make an assumption you are incorrectly calling this 1.5-2)

G2 1997-2003

G3 2003-2010 (this includes what people refer to as 3.5)

G4 2010-present

Everyone? Well you don't speak for me and I'm pretty sure you don't speak for everyone.

 I like Gen 1&2 just fine. But Gen 3 is way too generic. It's writing is really weak and I often wonder why they put in all the work it takes to animate it when the script sounds like a first draft. I love shows made for little girls and young audiences in general, but this one is so devoid of any substance it seems to suck all the light and sound from the air as I watch it.

I ain't a fan of Gen 3 myself, without hating it though (hate is such a strong and misused word nowadays). It just appears as tasteless to me but I can't complain about it to be fair. Complaining about Gen 3 is honestly like telling how much a blank paper is "so blank"

However, I have to give some things to the Gen 3. As an example, I do prefer the design of the G3 Breezies over the G4 ones.

Partially because Newborn Cuties was an affront to animation and life itself and all of G3 is judged guilty by association, and partially because hating on the prior gens makes you seem more masculine and sophisticated. 

To everyone with an actual opinion? It was saccharine fluff. Idyllic filler lacking substance, conflict or intrigue. Copy and paste characters with only hints of personality. It wouldn't favor well compared to G1, let alone G4. 

But the generation and a half is a bit overhated (excluding Newborn cuties).

The animation is still solid. The backgrounds are very detailed. The score is pleasant to listen to. The voice cast isn't phoning it in, and actually shares some common VAs with G4. And overall the series is inoffensive and aesthetically pleasing. A chill escape from ones day.

G3 and 3.5 were never meant to be judged on their own, but as companion pieces to the toys (which are superior to the G4 ones in that regard). The show gives a few ideas on how the characters should be, but leaves the rest to be filled in by those playing with the toys. 

 

But hey, still better than G1.5 a.k.a. MLP Tales. Poor voice acting. Poor animation. Actively opposes having a fantasy setting and even teaches detrimental morals.

I could easily see why people don’t like it-it isn’t made with quality in mind and focuses more on marketing than being a nice TV show- but I tend to like it since the ponies are usually pretty cute and they manage to get along pretty well, something real people need to do more often.

Well, people hate Generation 3 because, if you look closer into it, it was all for little girls. I absolutely loved G3 as a kid. Minty was my favorite too. But, the only contents were toys and movies, no storyline, no episodes. a 3.5 Christmas special about a pony wishing for Pink snow, a live action tea party special, it was made fun of for being for little girls. Like the way Caillou became a meme because people think it's annoying.

I personally like G3, but some Bronies don't because the haters of the series think that Friendship is Magic follows the same type. Bronies would be afraid that they would have others thinking that they watch a show about technicolor glitter horses and love it. The haters would also think that G1 is also like that, but G3 was just made for little girls.

On the other hoof, it might be only because of just two words: Newborn. Cuties. 

baby scootaloo meeting Scootaloo G4 would be the most amazing crossover just wow. It wouldn't be creepy at all.

Well it is made strictly for female children from ages 1-5 in mind. So it’s not that interesting.

Also, IMO this generation 3 MLP was not written by people, but by aliens (mostly grey) masquerading as people to mind control unsuspecting female toddler children to do their bidding because the whole show looks horrifying. Have you seen the ponies of Gen 3 and 3.5? I have seen some clips of both of these shows because I hate myself so much. They look as if they went on a diet so hard they’re suffering from malnutrition. Also, the eyes. They are fitting for being horrifyingly soul-staring.

The whole thing seems like an experiment gone horribly wrong.
