Old news is old but if you haven’t heard the word, the ride continues on. Last Thursday, hardcore animation fan and former site operator to Littlest Pet Shop’s only direct dedicated news site, Chevistian, made mention over Twitter that Hasbro was pushing the news of an 8th Season of MLP, due out in the Spring of 2018, via the Las Vegas Licensing Expo 2017. Honestly its probably not a huge shock to anyone considering the amount of time and effort that Hasbro has been putting behind ponies. If only they had struck the iron when it was white hot, but as we have learned over the almost decade of the Pony Train, ye old toy company moves very very slowly.
As that really old grumpy fan sitting on his porch, I can’t help but reflect to those ancient days of 2010 when the most common thing the trolls in the 4chan threads would spout off about was the fact the show wouldn’t last long, and that what we were doing was a fad. Well, who is laughing now. Right…?
