Most bronies who hate the G1-G3 hate it with a passion use the “It had bad voice acting, terrible storyline, bad animation, etc.” excuse. Bronies, this was the 80s. Everything back then was different compared to today. We didn’t have high-tech Flash Animation back in the 80s.
It was all traditional where you had to draw FRAMES BY FRAMES and not rely on Flash for everything. The voice acting was bad because that’s all they can afford back then. The storyline may not be good but i sure as hell think it’s interesting since the 80s had a villain who wanted to use the ponies as slaves (I think) and transform them into the villain’s henchman. What do you get on FiM? A pony who’s going to bring night in Ponyville forever and a creature bringing chaos. Yeah, real scary compared to ponies being slaves and transforming into henchman.
Bronies need to realize some people who loved G1-G3 don’t even like G4 because it’s tricked out to be girly and not as good like G1. Plus, Bronies need to stop harassing the G1 fans. They’re the ones who make the fanbase look shitty.
There was some scary ass shit in the first gen.

Anywho. I think all gens of MLP are MLP and I love each Gen for different reasons. I think some bronies need to realize that without the older gens they would not have their precious FIM.
Seriously, I am tired of looking through older gen artwork on dA and people commenting “Wrong gen!!!11!!” or people seeing older MLP toys and commenting about how they look like hippos or their anatomy is so off. (*cough*G4 toys don’t have much better horse anatomy with their cat ears *cough*)
Most cartoons during that time were like that. It isn’t fair to compare it to a current cartoon. It’s like picking up a PS1 game and trying to compare it to a PS3 game voice acting/graphics/script wise.
Just because the G1 stuff is ‘outdated’ doesn’t make it bad.
