Firefly Vs Tirek by PixelKitties Firefly Vs Tirek by PixelKitties
I finally had the chance to go back and watch the original My Little Pony Gen1 Pilot Rescue At Midnight Castle.

My memories of seeing this on video many years ago were that it involved black rainbows, ponies being turned into dragons, and the evil demon guy from the old Dungeons & Dragons cartoon.

Sadly, it wasn't QUITE as awesome as my childhood memories would have me believe. But it was still lots of fun and had some very non-girly elements to it, including dragons, beast-men, and a castle design right out of The Dark Crystal!

What was I saying? Oh! Have Firefly and the villian Tirek doing epic felt things!

Edit- I just realized my initial memories of G1 pony sounded like an episode of Metalocalypse. Which is awesome.

I don't like how Tirek looks so deformed. He reminds me of his horrible version in G4. And Firefly looks WAY too much like Firefly. Firefly may be like RD, but she surely is way more awesome.

Why do you hate G4

I don't. I liked Maud Pie, Cheese Sandwich, the Diamond Dogs and a few characters.
I dislike it because it doesn't follow the original cartoon and bronies like to make fun of G1, which was a much better children's cartoon. People say the 80s show was for little girls? It wasn't. It was for children and maybe sometimes the whole family.
G4 is your generic clichéd girl's cartoon, and I don't understand how it can be respected by mature people, but I did like some things.

So no, I don't hate it.

thanks to curiosity on the MLP the season finale; it lead to Tirek
which lead to this; The Roots to Tirek in MLP
which lead to this fine piece of art work
thank you for being such a long time fan and translating G1 to G4 artwork! XD

Tirek and the whole dragons and darkness thingy does sound kinda awesome... until you remember that he was defeated by G1 My Little Ponies.

The League of Evil probably made him turn in his club membership and his man card for that one.

I saw the whole thing on Youtube a little while ago. I held on to more of the memories of it, so I knew of the very 80's-type story weaknesses.

But still, it held so much promise of a cool show to come... and then when I saw the actual series... ugh.

Of course, I also held out that "Popples" would morph into a show about the CIA wanting to steal the puffballs and experiment on them to discover the secrets of the hammerspace powers.

Aaaaaaand also that No Heart on the "Care Bears" would get more evil and start slaughtering them, requiring an epic bear war against his evil forces. There would have been many casualties... >:3

I was a disturbing child... so naturally I became a research biologist! MUWAH HA HA HA!! >:D

Tirek? Hmm...a villain who wants to make it eternal night, the ponies have to make a dangerous trek to an old castle and defeat him with a rainbow deus ex machina. Call me crazy, but I think Tirek has already made an appearance.

True that the whole "Eternal Night" thing has been done, but they can try something different with him. How about Tirek turns Equestria into his new kingdom of hell?

You mean like Discord tried to do? Anyway, there may be legal reasons they can't bring back G1 villains by name. I'm perfectly content with just seeing what the FIM writers come up with on their own.

I just want to see a real villain to be on the show. While Nightmare Moon was good, Discord was a terrible villain. He was written poorly, rushed, and he was over hyped. I want the writers to make a villain who is evil, dark, malevolent, vial, threatening, not a joke, and not kid friendly. I believe that the writers should take a chance to make a powerful foe for the ponies, and I believe that children should see the darkest side of evil. Us kids in the 80s and 90s (I'm a 90s kid) witnessed this, and kids of today should see it also. Let me show you a video of what I believe the next MLP:FiM villain should be like. Also, this is what Discord should have been and acted like [link]

Well, that's your opinion. My opinion is that I'm very satisfied with the villains shown thus far. The writers have done well to bring in a periphery demographic of people your and my ages. If you want to see a villain like in your Fantasia video, maybe you could write a fanfic or something.

I looked at them, and I think they may be a little too dark for a show targeted towards little girls. I don't think they'll be showing any death or killing on MLP:FIM.

Finally! It's 'bout time Firefly got some love. Seriously, Lauren Faust's DA account is named after her, why doesn't she get more fan art?

...I guess I should draw some. Maybe write a fanfic...

Very nice. It's like if Pinkie read it to the CMC like a story. "And that's how Equestria WAS MADE!" I say bring back Tirek! Really, if Discord, why not him?
