Do the past generations of MLP deserve all the hate?

Only Newborn Cuties deserves the hate, that thing was awful. It was only made to match up with toy sales too. The rest of G3 has its good and bad movies but saying it’s the worst thing ever is a bit harsh.

well lets just say that l'm guessing boys hate the old generations just because it was more girly in the old films and there was no boy ponies.

But imo old generations doesn't deserve so much hate at all. l liked G1 and G2, but not a fan of G3 just because the ponies were babies.

Since the old Gens were animated traditionally, they already deserve my respect. My favorite one of the old gens is My Little Pony Tales, which would be Generation 1.5 i think. It was cute, unique and Beautiful Looking in a lot of parts.

And Generation 2 had an interesting video game, which also featured good Animation.

Generation 3 is partly a little painful to watch, because it calmed down a lot in comparison to G1, but most of it was still cute looking, sometimes nicely animated and there were some Movies i enjoyed.

I dont understand why someone would hate them really, apart from that one bad Generation 3.5 Thing. Most of it was inoffensive. I can understand that someone would dislike it and they have all the Right to do so, but outright hate? For what reason?

But since a lot of comments on older Mlp Videos are disabled now, because of Coppa, i guess Hater, who actually post Insults under older gens, dont madder anymore anyway. 

Bronys who post hate comments on older gens are kind of ironic.

I don't care for them, but they do have their fans. I won't deny there's some crap in them but nowadays honestly a lot of hate for them feels like they came from insecure G4 fans who blame them for being why MLP is under such scrutiny

They certainly don't deserve hate but perhaps some constructive criticism on writing characters/morals instead. Unless they were like TTG, I don't think any of the generations should be eradicated from history. They helped make G4 a thing in the first place.

The G3.5 cartoon had the characters as babies. G3 proper was like a reimagined G1, complete with mostly adult ponies and a selection of baby ponies who were different from the aduls.

I know that, it just wasn't my thing during the time

Nah I don't think so, especially gen 1 which started it all. I love fizzy and firefly. There are many other cool characters. Sure they could give it more personality and it has a generic kid show with villains feeling (so I yawn a bit) but it's a decent cartoon I think. Looking back there were some good ideas. And I saw some interesting toys like rainbow ponies, sea ponies, big brother ponies (which seem to have more vibrant colours compared to a lot of male ponies in gen 4).

As a kid I loved the gen 2 pony toys, they didn't have their own show but it was fun brushing their hair, I still have them a blue one and a pink one. I also had an older pony toy i think.

The gen 3 cartoon is a bit weird by that time I was a bit older and not interested. Also a little too pink for me though I was interested at the time that there was a show based on the toys that I liked when I was younger it didn't really seem to have much substance.

I sure think they are very different to gen 4 though, so I can get why if you would want to distance from all that. Nothing like that same quality as a show. But for hasbro it was mainly about the toys so yea.

I honestly don't think the past generations deserve to receive hate. I mean, every generation have their flaws in terms of the toy-lines or the animated series. Even generation 4 gets some hate, despite from all the spin-offs and featured films. For me, I enjoy the classic generations of My Little Pony, and without them we probably wouldn't have "Friendship is Magic" but that's just my speculation.

No. I don't like to think or say that the previous generations deserve hate. Oh sure, the content they were producing might not have the best quantity as they expected but they did received and met the target audience that they wanted. That's all I gotta add. Hope this was easy to help reconsider or maybe learned something here. ✌️

Interestingly, if we were back in 2011, there were people defending FIM with their lives, to be the best show ever and that you must not make the mistake of mixing FIM with MLP and older Generations.
It was the law back then. Because if people found out you were a boy that liked MLP, you were doomed! Even if you had a good reputation as being a bada*s at 4chan.

Hey I will let you all know that I presented a power point on why G3 wasn't that bad.

Longer than that.

lol yeah. I remember that. Hell I even got a birthday card (not for me just in general) that is G3 themed from Dollar General and they got back in stock recently too.

No. It's not trying to do the same thing as FiM or appeal to the same people. G1 especially is perfectly ok and I am pleased to revisit 80s nostalgia.

 

That is not to say there are not a few things in it that make me wince :eww: in particular, I'm with G1 Tirac and Scorpan on the G1 Spike "Silence!"
