Watch the original movie. The mask doesn't make you wacky, it brings out repressed desires. The reason it didn't change Pinkie Pie is because she has no desire or passion, she acts hedonistic because deep down she's dead. Her soul was crushed by her oppressive upbringing, and her attempts at parties are the pony equivalent of doping up.
You're right. Avatar is kind of the anti-MLP. One was a trend setter that didn't treat it's audience like morons, developed it's characters, established it's villains, and had a proper story from start to finish. And the other was MLP, the cartoon equivalent of a vegan hot dog. Completely devoid of meat and flavor and served only to people who either understand the novelty and can joke about it or are too stupid to know better.
What, you mean the portion of DHX in Vancouver that in the past eight years have done almost nothing but new iterations of toy commercials, adaptations that were a decade late, or series launched by a different studio that no one has the decency to let die? Oh yeah, i can really see the effort in the total lack of originality in MLP and Pound Puppies.
But then again, what the fuck could they do with My Little Pony? Even if you were telling the truth about DHX Vancouver, Hasbro meddling would kneecap them even if Lauren Faust did have a fraction of the talent bronies claim she does. Hell, they could somehow get Vince Gilligan, Aaron Sorkin and Matt Groening on the project and it would still boil down to characters with recycled names doing stupid shit with little to no consequence and no real story progression because of the jackasses in Hasbro.
Who, Jim Carrey? Yeah, i have a problem with that stupid motherfucker. That piece of shit supports the hysterical myth about ties between the MMR vaccine/autism myth. It's people like him who are directly responsible for multiple deaths due to scaring people into avoiding vaccines which are far, far lower risk than the risk of getting the disease they prevent, and all of that based on a fear that is completely ungrounded. There is no evidence, none, that supports the link between vaccines and autism. The best vaccine opponents have is the timing, which is indicative of absolutely fucking nothing as basic logic fallacies can point out. And even if he weren't one of those stupid "GREEN OUR VACCINE" assholes, his filmography is a joke. He only has one decent comedy to his credit and that came out when i was a toddler. The man is an F-list talent who never should have become famous.
