...To be fair, for Derpy's original voice, voice actress Tabitha St. Germain thought she was a boy, and based her voice on the kid of one of her neighbors.  Even if it does seem like a bit of a lower-quality rush-job, I can at least approve of making the voice more feminine, since I didn't think think the previous voice really fit.  The cheering at the end sounded spot on.

Changing 'Now careful, Derpy...' to just a flat 'Now careful...', on the other hand, is much more disappointing, since it was really the first major nod to the fandom that we got...  But that could still at least be a copyright thing, rather than a political correctness thing.

...Unless someone at Hasbro actually went on record elaborating things, anyway.

True.  Also, I just now realized that they un-derped her eyes, so...

NOOOOOOOOO!

I'm sad, now. :-(

I never even watched the latest cartoon, but I still find it hard to believe how the show had gotten so popular outside its target audience. I'm not trying to be mean here but isn't the show aimed at younger children? And how did it became an internet meme anyway?

I might give it a quick watch sooner or later just to see what the fuss is about. I just find it a little annoying to see those things popping up every few minutes. .-.

I watch the show because I loved My Little Ponies when I was a little and I love Lauren Faust's work she is just great... Don't know why all the guys watch it.

Just a bunch of crazy Bronies me thinks. :P

Nah, it was a combination of luck and timing, as I understand it. ^^ A large group all watched it at once to see why this guy wrote an article stating that it marked the beginning of the end of modern animation, and after watching it, they were not only of the opinion that he was wrong, but that he had clearly not watched the show at all, and was just having a knee-jerk reaction to it.

Then things just sorta snowballed from there, and the show has remained popular due to being legitimately good on its own merits.

And as KYM pointed out, the Trolls went after the Bronies, the Mods went after the Trolls, and once you ban something on 4Chan, it's strength multiplies 10 fold!

So the series was founded by the same person who created the Power Puff Girls? Well that video alone answers most, if not all of my questions. Thanks.

Though I still probably won't get into it regardless. Even I have my limits.  :-\

Technically her husband created the Power Puff Girls, she worked on it and helped on his other show Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends.

And you never know, I have a friend who sworn they would never get into the series... Now they have downloaded the first two seasons and love it. xD

I'm actually brushing his mane as I type this >:3

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic - Smile, Smile, Smile (Pinkie Pie Song)

The new favorite song that they have done (for me at least).
That's like my personal theme song right there.  :p ;D

I'm a bit late to the party, but the 'new' Derpy hooves has just made me so incredibly sad. They just removed everything I liked about the character and I adored her old voice. It seemed only fitting that a character who got popular because of an error had an error to her voice as well.

I sincerely hope that Derpy Hooves gets her 'old' voice back. She never sounded retarded or mentally challenged. She was slapstick humor, and considering i've had speech problems myself but am perfectly smart and literate... Its almost feels like a 'People with odd voices can't be normal' sort of thing. Ohh.... I am not happy about this at all.

Edit: I am doubly offended actually, because of my speech problems that needed corrective help, as well as needing eye surgery to help fix a lazy eye. So this feels doubly insulting to me. I'm writing Hasbro a firm letter.
