Grown men and women watch a show created to sell toys to four-year-old girls. Are they confused deviants? Rebels standing bravely against repressive social norms of gender and age? Or a circle of friends just trying to have fun? This first volume of essays adapted from the blog My Little Po-Mo combines a critical study of the first season of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic with ethnographic examination of its adult fans to explore these questions and the show which inspired them. This volume includes: *Critical essays on every episode of the first season *An examination of the series as a whole as a feminist work *A brief history of the last fifty years of American animated television *Essays on the psychology and experiences of adult fans in general, and the experiences of the oft-overlooked adult women in particular *And more!
