G3 is the only franchise of My Little Pony that I really pay attention to. A Charming Birthday was the very first My Little Pony episode I ever saw and I used to have some of the merchandise from the G3 franchise!
The movie about Rarity (I think it was called The Runaway Rainbow, it was the one where her sister is looking for her and she meets the Breezies) is the first one I ever saw, then A Very Minty christmas :P I thought Minty was weird as a kid because she wanted socks, lol XD XD
When I first saw FiM I was actually the target audience (9 or 10), and I hated it with a passion XD I thought they completely ruined the show XD I don't care now obviously, it's okay, but little me wanted it off the air forever XD
It certainly took me a bit to warm up to MLP because I just didn't like it when I first saw an ad for the Cotton Candy Cafe playset but the music that was included is what started it all and then I found the G3 pony that I related to, Star Swirl.
Star Swirl relates to me because her backcard story says she loves astronomy and she's also astronomy themed. Nope, no affiliation with that wiki. It's designed differently too (as in with code and such).
Oh, well still cool, regardless! :P w:c:mlp (the one I'm talking about) is a Wikia/Fandom Wiki. Because I was thinking that if you were already affiliated then that would spread awareness for this one :d
