From the Publisher

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!
