'My Little Pony' parodies Katy Perry

If you're not 7, there's a good chance that you are unaware of the latest "My Little Pony" re-boot - an animated series on the Hub network entitled "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic."

But if you grew up on the 80s, you probably remember the "My Little Pony & Friends" theme song lyrics: "My Little Pony, My Little Pony, what will today's adventure be... ."

Well hold your horses! Because the all-new herd of ponies has put together a music video parody of Katy Perry's "California Gurls" with original lyrics, and sung by the ponies themselves.

The lyrics lovingly satirize Perry's song, and some of our favorite lines are, "There is a place where the grass is what's for dinner," and "You could travel the world, but no one can groove like the girls with the hooves."

Did you grow up with "My Little Pony"?

    I actually got my 10 year old sister to watch this show. Mostly because I needed a cover for watching it on the family tv in glorious HD. Amazingly, and I was legitimately surprised when she actually liked the show too. It was a learning experience to both of us when she found out that men like me liked the show, and how the internet took to it. I learned that the show is indeed popular with little girls.

    Checking in, 22 year old male. Big fan of hot women, fast cars, football, action movies, rock music etc. I initially resisted the show because.. well obviously one would assume it's a little girl show based on the history of the series. I was no different. After watching a few very well done parodies and music videos, I decided to give it a chance and now I can't stop. The art style and visuals are great, the characters are very well written and the show is entertaining. The online community following has probably some of the most creative people around. Yeah it's a little embarrassing though because a lot of people probably won't give it a chance and will likely be prejudice against those that like it but hopefully it will become a little more mainstream and acceptable to those that don't understand it.

    Screw you CNN. We all know how incapable you guys are about making accurate news reports about the world, but COME ON. This is the INTERNET. Get your head out of your ass for once and take a look at what is really going on.
    The newest generation of the My Little Pony franchise is currently being adored by many fans across the globe. Believe it or not, at least 70% of the show's fans are males, ranging from ages 13 through mid 40s. Do some damn research before you just post dumb crap about an awesome show.And I also find it hard to believe that you guys found the Equestria Girls song and realized it was a parody, but didn't even REALIZE what reception the show's getting. You guys SUCK at news reports.

    Absolutely shocked by all the snarky responses from BOTH sides on this article. There's a diffence between 'fan base' and 'target demographic,' and any publicity for the show will most likely go for target demographic, those seven year old girls. That doesn't give us older pony fans the right to complain over misrepresentation, as, when considering the marketing angle, we aren't represented (the shoutout in the video is still awesome though).

    On the other side of things, can't we be fans and like things regardless of it's intended audience? The fact that My Little Pony is loved by people up to (and possibly upwards) of 50 is an impressive feat. If you're not a fan, give a nod toward that fact and move on. I don't hate on you for not liking the show, please don't hate on me.

    On a personal not to end this reply... I'm a 26 year old female fan, and I'm just happy to see a television cartoon that's well done and appealing! After going to school for animation, I've been disillusioned over seeing all the low budget, half thought out shows being made for younger kids. I thought My Little Pony was a lovely breath of fresh air in that arena.

      After scouring the internet I've been unable to find these 'mediocre ratings'. IMDB gives a score of 8.9, and Hub viewership has shot up since the series started. Also the whole point of the video is Hasbro's way of saying that they do care about their fans.

    (Before a rant that people still believe cartoons are for kids...) I am a male and I am proud to love My Little Pony- Friendship is Magic.
    You probably get it by now (or you don't because PR bullcrap refrains you from reading comments on your own blog) that the most vocal group of fans are males in the 16-35 range. (Though I'm slightly younger than that)
    Of course, it's not like you actually bothered research on this totally-not-a-story. You just thought it was pretty neat and stuff. Just, remember for future purposes that there is ALWAYS a peripheral demographic that is way more vocal than it's target audience (other examples include Invader Zim, Power Rangers, Transformers, Spongebob, Ren & Stimpy, and so much more).

    • You're going to love me

      This is what happens when a major news website posts about a show with a huge cult following on the internet

      Here's the deal:
      This new MLP series is made. It's actually really good, unlike previous generations. Show begins to reel in a huge following on the internet amongst college males, likely due to the irony of a MLP show being good. Fanbase then calls themselves "bronies". The Hub TV network recognizes this and produces a promo spot mentioning "bronies" as a way of saying "Hey guys. We know you're out there. Thanks for watching and supporting us". CNN finds promo and posts it on their blog. Blog writer mentions 7 year olds because it's freaking My Little Pony and why would anyone think otherwise. Insecure and whiny fans comment. Hilarity and creepiness ensues

      As with any internet fanbase, things can get creepy and weird, as what some idiots are displaying here. These may be the vocal majority, but I assure you we are all not like this. I just watch the show because it's cute and fun. A nice way of letting your brain go after a long day. Plus, it's fun show to watch with my niece and nephew that doesn't make me want to scratch my eyes out.

      Again, I apologize for what's going on here. You guys can have your blog back.

    People please look at the outfit Katy is wearing. This has nothing to do with a 7 year old's cartoon. Can't these singers make money without involving little kids cartoons. Let these kids stay innocent until after their 13th birthday at least.

      Well Katy Perry didn't sing the pony version. She didn't appear in the video either. There is nothing innapropriate for children in the parody the article is talking about, even though it was made as a shout out to older fans. So I wouldn't be worried about it.

    Another brony from ponychan here. CNN, while you may have made a very dumb mistake, it's great that you posted and spread the show. it's such a great show. I am a male and I love the hell out of this show. The writing is fantastic, the animation is smooth, and the characters are relateable. The morals also are important for people of all ages.

    the bronies are huge. they are the most unique and diverse fanbase ever. yet they are the closest. this video is The hub's way of saying "Thank you", and letting us know that they know of us.

    I think a major draw of the community is how easy it is to produce original material. It's not hard to draw ponies, so you've got comics and funny pictures all over the place. That was what really drew me into the show.

    Personally I don't like being lumped in with the "this is a great community and go to ponychan for love and tolerance" people, since frankly that's all nonsensical tripe to me. It's not as if getting along and being friendly is a revolutionary new philosophy everyone has to see first hand – and most of those people forget the copius amounts of unsavory material that's generated from the anonymous nature of the image boards. If I'd recommend directing anyone anywhere, it would be to Equestria Daily, because that's a major hub of the fanbase and it's well-moderated. All the quality pony enteretainment congeals there.

    Ah well, the system denied my post attempt... which is upsetting, as it took more than half an hour to write. But I suppose it boils down to this; most of the people trolling at the fans haven't even seen the show. You can't form a valid opinion about something without knowing about it first. Give the show a try; while the primary targets are young children, there are at least a few jokes in there kids shouldn't get; "An Egghead's Guide to Running" and "They spiked the punch" spring to mind. Yes, it has problems, which include excessive horse puns and that it's a musical. But there are a lot of good stories in there, and good jokes too. Add to that the fanbase (the normal people, not the shippers/grimdark writers,) and you have a pretty sweet deal. Yes, it's ponies. Yes, it's aimed at little girls. Yes, it is one of the best shows to run on television in the past three years; this coming from a guy who watches Mythbusters and Human Target. Give the show a chance, watch an episode or two. (Common recommendations are 9 and 13.) We're not asking you to like it, we're just asking you to give it a chance.

      I agree that the music can actually be somewhat entertaining; I have 8-bit remakes of most songs on my MP3 player. However, the lyrics can be somewhat grating, especially to new viewers. If someone went into the show not knowing about that, it could scare them away pretty quickly. That was my motivation for saying that.

    19 year old Asian Brony reporting in. Love guns, shooter games and computers. Now, Ponies.

    Lauren Faust has created a show which has became a huge internet phenomena/culture (in 10 seconds flat). Not many shows can do that. From all the cartoons which I've watched on Disney, CN and Nick, somehow MLP has managed to capture me and drag me into following it and researching it deeper. Which brought me to the brony community and all its awesomeness.

    I'm really glad and lucky to be part of this community. Not many here enjoy this show, but I'm just happy there are many out there who are still holding strong to these ponies. Brohoofs to all of you bronies out there. Tolerate & Love people!

    Adult male, just shy of 32, and I love ponies!

    The show is genuinely good! Like Lauren Faust has stated in the past, her target audience isn't just little girls, but the whole family. Why create a show that only entertains a small demographic, little girls, when you can create something that the whole family can enjoy together. I don't have kids myself, but this is a show I'd proudly watch with my family, if I were to ever have one. I suspect that If my brother got The Hub, that him and his 2 girls and his son could all sit in front of the TV and enjoy this together... as a family!

    These days, when everyone seems to have a personal TV in their bedrooms, and no one sits together as a family anymore, why CAN'T we have MORE shows like "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic"!

    MLP:FiM's target demographic is the human race. The WHOLE THING!

    As to those who dis the show and it's fans... Well, you don't have to like it. No one is forcing you, but it's pretty sad to see people wishing ill will against another person for the horrid crime of... liking something you don't care for. REALLY!!! The trolls can always be ignored. We will love and tolerate the ship out of you! :)

    As for the uninformed... aka CNN...

    I half suspect that the people who did the reporting never had an inclination that such a fanbase would even potentially exist. Bronies, cut CNN some slack. If you had never seen MLP and were told that My Little Pony parodied a well known Katy Perry song, would you think to check the demographics of the TV show, or simply report on the parody for it's face entertainment value. I don't blame you. Every news station has to have it's "cute kittens and puppies" piece. With all the bad that happens in the world, it's a true wonder CNN found the time for this. Thank God they did. Maybe if more people watched this show, people might mellow down a bit and maybe CNN would have the time to put more good news up.

    Epic win on the animators, giving props to the fans! All us Bronies love y'all too!

    Anywho, yes. Friendship is Magic is really popular outside the target audience. It's both scary and awesome at the same time! I'm 23, male, love women, fast cars and other things typical of my age and yet I adore this cartoon. Keep in mind I still roll my eyes at the other gens because of how cheesy and girly they come off. Not just girly, but insulting to girls girly. G4 is like a vibrant wonderful thing whilst the previous gens follow a generic "girls cartoon" formula..bleh. What gives FiM its appeal is the fact it takes cartooning back to the good days when a cartoon wasn't a 30 min long comercial or trying way too hard to be "hip". It's a geniune fun show that can be enjoyed by all ages. Something like that is rare these days.

      To be entirely fair, I dunno about the 16- 30 years old age group being MLP's main audience. MLP':FiMs originally ludicrous timeslot aside, I don't think we actually have viewership statistics that aren't from YouTube and it's inherent sample bias.

      We're a large crowd, sure – low sixtuple digits, I guess? – but I wouldn't go so far as to say we're the majority.

    This video was aimed to those Bronies, not kids :)

    You must be new to ponies.....

    If your not aware, the series has taken a massive grip on the internet, with many of the new series fans being......MALE. Yes, the "Brony" fandom has gripped the internet, with custom artwork, stories, groups and parody's on the internet (Can you say "Reservoir Ponies"?)

    Many of the male fans are in the 18-30 demographic, many of them loyal due to it's great animation, fantastic voice cast and more realistic setting than past My Little Pony series. They have claimed that, even with the "My Little Pony" sticker on it, it's a fantastic series for everyone to watch.

    This is One proud Brony, sitting at home at 11PM, watching "The Ticket Master" on another web page, writing in from England itself to saying "KNOW YOUR STUFF.........but thank's anyway, really thoughtful!"

      Seriously, I get that there is a large community of men who like the show and all, but you cannot understand how anyone not in that fandom might assume this show is geared towards little girls? Not at all? All of the main pony characters are girls, and it encourages girls to be strong and all that good stuff.
      Like I said, I understand that the whole Brony thing is big, but cutting down the kids it was made for is not ok and you guys should stop being so snarky about it. My 3 year old daughter loves the show, and she isnt a throw away demographic.

      So, yeah, stop being all "OMG I cannot BELIEVE CNN didn't know a whole bunch of adult males love this show, they are EVIL" and all that trash. This was not an in depth story about any culture, just a cute little shout out to a cute little show... so chill the f*#k out people

    Classification: Class 0 Brony.

    CNN, I'm not sure if you are aware of this, but the song you are referring to with this article is actually more directed towards the Periphery Demographic, known as Bronies (sing. Brony), that has arisen due to the fact that Friendship is Magic is actually one of the better shows to come out since the late 1990s, or perhaps even before that.

    This huge fan-following has been in direct contact with the creative team for some time, and said team has actually interacted with these fans. There are pony-centric image boards (ponychan.net) and fanfiction archives (EquestriaDaily.com) where these older, frequently male, fans explore possibilities of characters for background characters, or just try to keep each other entertained until Season 2 is aired.

    Upon closer listening to the song you have embedded in this article, you will hear Spike, the silhouetted dragon, say DJ P0N-3, the fan-made stage name for the pony with the goggles and turntable see bookending the video. For completeness's sake, her (also fan-made) real name is Vinyl Scratch.

    Some fans have made similar musical parodies, and/or music videos using the ponies. Possibly this is a shout-out to them all.

    And to everypony whom CNN has just converted to the Pony side. Welcome to the herd.

      One of the best shows since the 1990s? I'm going to have to disagree with that. There's been plenty of shows that came out last decade that blow the new MLP out of the water in pretty much everything.

      And about that "direct contact with staff" tidbit, isn't the reason why Lauren Faust left the show in the first place was because of the creepy fans cyber-stalking her? Just thought that you should know that, CNN...

      Well, while I understand where you are coming from and respect the fact that we have different tastes, the only show in a comparable classification to MLP:FiM since the turn of the century that comes to mind is Danny Phantom. Unless I'm placing some 2000-2004 shows in the wrong time period, I'm afraid I stand by my statement.

      Cyber-stalking? Where the hay did you hear that? Last I heard, from Lauren's dA Journal IIRC, is that she was moving onward to other projects, and leaving the rest of the team behind the awesomeness in charge.

    Wow, congratulations once again CNN, you manage to report the news but still get it completely wrong at the same time. Maybe you should actually do some research before you actually report news.

      Eric's right on this one- don't get angry at an honest mistake- what we can all do is instead show them where the popularity hails from! IE, Ponychan :>

      A lot are older than 20. I'd say a broad average is closer to 16-25. Of course we also have people in their 30s and probably some young kids too. But its mostly adults.

      @Eric
      Actually, I know a fair amount of bronies who are younger than 16 (myself included). I would say the average age is more 13 to whatever you said.

    The internet is host to a community of fans of the new My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, we are a friendly group who loves and tolerates everyone. We are referred to as Bronies, as shown in the song. DJ-Pon3 is a fan made name for the DJ pony. Never have I ever seen a network get this close to their fans.

    This show has a fanbase that is so awesome you can't imagine it. I come from Germany and I found lots of new friends by watching this show. It's one of the most tolerant and loving community in the internet. If you report on this song, you have to report on Bronies, too. I am 18 and I am a Brony.

      yay, another german brony! ^^

      Basically what the other guys here said: I'm 17, going 18 this year and love the show and have even convinced two of my friends to join "The Herd". I listen to remixes and original songs on my cell phone and frequent Equestria Daily...well, daily. I'm pretty sure there are more older male fans than younger female fans, because through the Internet spread of this show, many people from countries where it isn't even aired (yet), like Germany, got in touch with it. And love it.

      So, Bronies, sing with we one more time! "E-ques-tri-a Girls, we're kind of magical..."

    You have no idea at how big a fan base this show has. I think you may need to research a little deeper guys :) The age range of the fanbase is very varied and there is huge websites based around the show allready. Cult status and the first series only just ended. Like i say , research deeper and join the herd.

      Indeed, that mention of "bronies" in the song and the name DJ P0N-3 are both shout outs to the brony community that is sweeping across the web. Go check out the official letter from the Hub's marketing department to the Equestria Daily blog that was to let the brony community to know they were going to be dropping a shout out to us when it aired.

      There are a lot more female fans than the internet gives credit for....

      The fact that they said "Bronies" is enough evidence that they know who we are, our ages, and what we like to call ourselves. That was never used in the show, ever. I dont think that they could suddenly come up with that word....

      @Twalit Spakl, I think it's because the fandom of people older than it's original intended demographic started on image board communities and they tend to forget that females go on the internet too for some reason. also it's really annoying that you can't reply to replies

      G4 is 20% cooler than the previous generations of MLP, and I love it. This is coming from a 16-year-old male who listens to death metal, dubstep, and wears black. Yeah; this show is just that amazing and adorable.

      It is also the best animated television show out there, with the fluidity of the animation itself, the voice acting (some of the best in the business), and characters that you have no choice but to adore. Like Fluttershy, Luna, and Colgate.
