It's OK, They Aren't Ponies -- They're Raptors

It's OK, They Aren't Ponies — They're Raptors.

People keep telling me it's wrong for a grown man to enjoy a cartoon about colourful pony friendship. Fine. How about colourful velociraptor friendship?

The incredibly talented Brianna "Cherry" Garcia offers this splendid compromise. Somewhere between My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and conforming to whatever society things a normal guy should like, there is My Little Raptor.

It's OK, They Aren't Ponies — They're Raptors.

It's essentially the same thing, only instead of hugs, these playful carnivores tear at each other with their powerful hind feet. They might as well just be plastic army men smoking cigars while doused in Drakkar Noir.

It's OK, They Aren't Ponies — They're Raptors.

Brianna performed dinosaur transformations on each of the show's mane characters, which can be found over at her Tumblr page. And should she ever make prints of these available at her society6 page, I shall be first in line.

For now, we sing.

My Little Raptor — I used to wonder what friendship could be — My Little Raptor — Until you gutted me with your enlarged sickle-shaped claw

    Clever girls

    Do they rip creatures open every episode and feast on their entrails?

      So as long as they do and their entrails match the colour of their manes, I'm all for it…

    Jesus, Pinky is terrifying enough without giving her feet claws.

    People keep telling me it’s wrong for a grown man to enjoy a cartoon about colourful pony friendship.

    That's because they are right.

    Giant transforming robots? Mutant ninja turtles? Samurai cats that deliver pizzas? Fine. Colourful ponies? No.

      It's about as logical for someone to call you out on naming yourself after a Shark than for you to assume that certain things fit specific gender roles like that.
