The Grogar twist, for starters. Reforming villains nobody wanted reformed, like Garble and Ahuizotl. Wasting Rainbow Dash’s last episodes on buckball episodes instead of focusing on the Wonderbolts.

At least they’re most well known by the whole universe than MLP.
 
Literally the only people who knows MLP are the fanbase, Weird Al and the Star Trek alumni and that’s it.
 
If people accepted change, MLP would have been normalized worldwide. Then there wouldn’t be just one movie but three, even if the show ends after 9 seasons.

Yeah, and look how much they suffer for it. Churning out worse and worse material every year.
 
Spongebob got considerably better after Sponge Out of Water. Not Golden Age good, but decent. I haven’t seen the new movie yet, so I can’t speak for that…

I don’t know what the fanbase has to do with that. The movie failed because Hasbro and Lionsgate cheaped out on the budget and refused to advertise it.

I thought it made four times its budget and people said it’s not a failure. Even so, I would assume to be the reason why Hasbro cancelled MLP after nine seasons.
 
Besides, the whining against the changes (such as EqG and Twilicorn) is what led some fans to agree with them and leave the fandom or be as critical as a majority of people who disliked a lot of episodes (mostly from seasons 4 through 9) which both led to losing interest in the show.
 
And losing interest can cause a decline of popularity with the franchise.

While saying “objectively bad” is ridiculous, for me personally, S9 was the only season to make me drop it outright, so for me personally it’s grounds to make it my least favorite season(though I’d probably quit S6 too if I knew that would have been the last season if that happened)

I still hold the first half of S7 was some of the best the show had to offer(while the second half wasn’t as good, it still had some quality episodes like Marks & Recreation and One Upon a Zeppelin).
 
While I actually like S8, it suffers a lot of the same problems S6 and 9 did, though a lot of it doesn’t bug me nearly as much(probably because when all the synopses were leaked early, most of the ones I was interested in actually delivered)

I genuinely don’t see how anyone could look at S9 and say, “That was a proper sendoff for the show”.

on topic but both sides of the of the “should Cozy and the other villains be turned to stone?” argument are annoying.
 
And while Jim getting death threats over the ending of the show was fuck and the people that sent them are absolute scum, i got tired of his vague non-answer answers towards everything in the finale.

Would it really be? I don’t think the toys are in similar leagues, for one. And that stigma isn’t going away just because fans accept change.
 
It always has been famous as a little girl’s toy franchise, and it always will be famous as a little girl’s toy franchise, because that’s what it is. It’s just that for a while, part of that fame was from being “that little girl’s toy franchise that a load of grown men watch for some reason or other - weird, huh?”
