Yeah it's a shitty show, but if you take out the bad parts there's a lot of really awesome stuff in it. Normally when you take those commercial shows and take out the bad parts there's just nothing left at all. But with MLP, even when you ignore the somewhat psychopathic inability of the writers to come up with a convincing argument for the moral of the day, or the fact that Ingram really is a talentless hack and half his songs are awkwardly delivered and contextual as fuck, or the stupid amounts of executive meddling that make the show take complete 180 degree theme shifts for no apparant reason, or nobody on the production team giving one single fuck about continuity, or the general lack of attention to quality to the point that they even get the puppets for the fucking main characters mixed up all the time... you still have ponies. You still have a colorful world full of life and wonder. You have an unexplored frontier, the delightful neurosis of a small town, characters with personality and depth that you can really respect and identify with, and occasional breaks from even the above shittiness to produce truly awesome moments. You have surprisingly dark themes with genuinely upsetting and horrifying things going on that you'd never see in a Disney movie. You have humor that isn't too cartoony, while not being too serious either.

So, yeah the show is shitty, but mostly because it's a big budget affair and because corporates ruin it with their copyright faggotry. So once you take that away, there's so much good in it that it inspires non-shitty stuff. Non-shitty stuff that's more awesome than J "Racism" Tolkein.

And even with the show being shitty, you have the only fucking example in fucking existence of a fantasy story that doesn't star humanoids. Until you can point out where I can find my magical land of fantasy animals that isn't MLP you can't say this show has no redeeming value, because there is just nothing else that even comes close to capturing the milieu of its setting.

Closest I can think of is that shit quality Pokémon Mystery Dungeon short, and even that starred a freaking biped.

>fantasy story that doesn't star humanoids

Hmm. Redwall isn't magical outside of prophecies, and most of the animals function as humanoid. Watership Down isn't magical (beyond a little bit of magic in the show). The Dark Portal has plenty of magic, but the mice/rats function as humanoids. (Albeit tiny ones living beneath a human world.) Silverwing, Guardians of Ga'Hoole, and Warriors are animal fantasy with some magic.

Redwall has a three-season show (first season for Redwall, second for Mattimeo, third for Martin the Warrior). Of those, Martin is best. Watership Down has a movie and a three-season show; I rather liked the show. Guardians of Ga'Hoole has a movie (Legend of the Guardians) which was decent. Silverwing has a show which I've never seen.

I agree we need more non-human fantasy. Just pointing out some titles.

Gummi Bears and The Smurfs. Hehe.

But I still find Storm Hawks to have a much better world design than mlp's unfleshed turd. Mostly because SH has floating islands and takes place in the air and I'm a sucker for those.

>No humanoids
But anon... stop being a zoophille/anthrofurfag and enjoy your people's race.

Thus I present you motherfucking fairies. Tinkerbell's 6 on-going movies and the 26 episode series Shadow of the Elves.

Now you notice how much more fleshed out the world design for these shows are compared to MLP.. SotE even has the map of the kingdom in the opening scene, while mlp has it only as an extra on the internet. Some shows even have the entire map of the planet. Poor mlp would have been better off being bought by Disney, it would have at least had the high budget and a real talented team. Sure it would have ended after just 1 season because of horrible time slots, but it would have been amazing just like Motorcity and Tron Uprising.

eh I tried that Gahoolie thing, but it was just too silly. I simply cannot take owls that seriously. I liked the Golden Road series relatively well, but Warriors is too "law of the jungle" for me. What's great about ponies is how they built a world for themselves, not how helpless they are with to their own mindless bestial urges in a cruel unforgiving world of kill or be killed. I read Watership Down, didn't really feel a need to watch the movie. That Rats of NIMH movie was a staple of my childhood, even though they were pretty much bipeds.

As for Redwall, calling those books literature is a crime against all that is good. I would run out of the burning library with Mein Kampf and Pride and Prejudice in my protective grasp before I tried saving those things. I've never seen character assassination on such a scale before, where the characters don't even have character before it starts getting ripped out of them. You'd think the show couldn't possibly be worse than that. You'd think.

The Abridged series is ok https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmU-EEgacyY

OOHH MY LORD Sweet Apple Acres on the map, but not the Royal Sisters Castle, Appleloosa and other important locations? Triple owned, sorry m8 but your granny is a lying whore. Also apples suck, especially granny smiths.

Except that clearly almost every pony item is human-made, or at least human-designed.

Yeah, there's that. Animal fantasy is usually very low fantasy: low-tech, low magic, low civilization. Advanced sapient non-humanoid animal settings are unusual as fuck. I'm failing to come up with a single example beyond MLP.

They're ponies. They don't go rogue and kill everyone.

Only because there are no more humans to kill.

well, advanced implies sapient, and non-humanoid pretty much implies animal. So all you need to find is a setting about advanced non-humanoids.

Unfortunately, any Sci-fi alien species I can think of that fit that bill are all playing second banana to the brave space humans.

Plus human writers and artists just love making aliens look butt ugly in general.

You literally just posted a picture of a pony who went rogue and tried to kill someone. Unless you think she was shooting nonlethal magic beams at Celestia.
