Cute or Annoying? You Decide! [POLL]

I’m usually quite impressed by mashups, but this one is troubling me. The cloying cuteness of My Little Pony is something that haunted by childhood, so to see it combined here with our favourite Time Lord in Doctor Whoove is setting my teeth on edge.

The problem, of course, is that as a child of the 1980s, my younger sister was forever playing with these awful polythene toys, with their hairbrushes, makeup and stickers finding their way into every room of the house (and onto every surface!)

Yet there is something a little endearing about this video…

Actually, no. I don’t like it. Or do I? Is the dialogue a bit naff? Could the captions be discarded with completely? Would a storyline help, and is Bubble too annoying?

Gah! It’s all too much. Perhaps you should decide…

    I like it, then again, I’m a brony. In fact, I first checked out Doctor Who since the fans believe that Pony looks like David Tennant. …Whaatever.

  2. Leo says:

    I always found these things a bit sinister (not that I had any)….

    I have no idea what ‘My Little Pony’ is, what it sounds like, what it’s purpose is… or anything.


    • I envy you…

    I liked this, but I hate the art. I LOVED the original My Little Pony ARt before they changed, murdered and turned it into the Mawdryn Undead with ice cream shops and school, taking out the medieval fantasy themes and with it all its charm. ;(

    But this was cute. The scripter can’t spell or use the English language properly, but that’s smal beans compared with the awesome of the clip. awesome job!
