I LOVED this show when I was a kid. Heck, I still do.
My little sister came up with the idea, and I gotta say, it was fun deciding who should be which character. The casting was so perfect it's frightening.
I guess MLP: FiM kinda hits that same happy nerve as Arthur for me, in some ways. I remember drawing these characters all the time, and watching it anytime I could catch it on TV. Good times, man, good times.
