Has this been an actual thread? Rambler!Ataraxia.ld.pod? 480912

I know that we've kicked this idea around occasionally, but I'm curious about what you guys think of making the show, oh maybe PG - PG13 and putting it on adult swim or something. It doesn't have to be super vulgar, but it could make more adult jokes and be aimed towards an older age group.

I think it'd be funny, but I'll probably have to wait for Gen 5 for that to happen.

Isn't it already pg-13?

Rambler!Ataraxia.ld.pod? 480915

Uh... no? Tried to find out for sure but failed, so unless you actually found something that told you it was PG 13 i'd say no.

That will never happen. Remember the primary intent of the show: to sell toys to little girls. How would taking the show away from that audience be a good suggestion?

I remember reading something on Equestia daily that They were considering making season 4 Demographic rating pg 13 or something like that. I can't remember much of it.

It's currently rated TV-Y

It'd be nice if it was PG-13. It'd be super nice if there was more than one production team, each with their own spin on how to approach the idea. Some PG-13, some TV-Y, some well... nudge nudge, wink, wink. Not all of them have to make full blown shows I mean, but it'd be nice if anyone who wanted to and could gather the resources could realize their own personal vision of what MLP could be. The most popular one would be the most elaborate, but that's a good thing, because it means people are genuinely happy with it.

But as long as we have copyright, trademark and intellectual property, that's not going to happen. Only one corporation is allowed to make anything without risk of C&D, and firstly they're not the best at making shows at all, and secondly they won't risk anything because it could lose money. Thus it's always going to be TV-Y shallow, overly moralistic garbage, because that's the inevitable effect of writing into law the lie that ideas are commodities.

But think about this. There's gotta be more adults and teens watching MLP than much of those late night adult swim shows like awesome show and Mr. Pickles, so it has to be somewhat feasible, although admittedly MLP is probably much more expensive to make. So I agree with >>480921 in the multiple production teams (although the ''nudge nudge wink wink'' one seems very unlikely, even in this copyright free world.)

But imagine if they actually tried to make the story deeper and the characters better and the show funnier for adults and teens. I think they would get a bigger audience. Ado making the merch better would be nice, but that's irrelevant.

Sounds like My Little Pony Z. But that isn't how Hasbro makes their money. And they aren't going to tarnish their brand by adding more adult versions of the show. What you might get, and I mean might, is a more serious offshoot in the form of a comic book, but even that is doubtful. I think you're just wishing.

Rambler!Ataraxia.ld.pod? 480927

I didn't think was likely nor am informed at all in this area. It would be cool though. Comic would be fine too. There's just such a waste of potential.

Sorry for being all political. I guess I'm just trying to say that there are people right now who could succeed, and do the right thing, and make a lot more money than Hasbro by genuinely appealing to a broader audience, but they're not the trademark holder. Companies will always make stupid business moves and lose money because they didn't get the rights by being the best, only by buying the rights from the people who were there first. And there's no consequences to making shitty toys because people will settle for it, since the choice is either that or get no ponies at all.

Your idea is better, it's just... there are very real reasons that people go with what's worse, not better. It's nice that you'd voice your opinion at least, but neither you nor anybody are gonna be able to deliver what people want. It's against the law.

Rambler!Ataraxia.ld.pod? 480935

I thought we had the same idea. I must be missing something. Also, no need to apologize.

It would be interesting, I guess
