update: 3 hours after the "save Derpy" animation went on youtube.
Holy shit...over 100,000 people has written, emailed, and called Hasbro.
They said...OKAY we'll look into this!
Let's just see what happens.
-------------Old stuff pertaining to the results----------
I have become a HUGE "My Little Pony" fan since the new show premiered with awesome animation, unique characters, and a loving story of a theme of 'love & tolerance'.
Well...apparently this has not been the case for a 'particular' MLP character that has caught the attention of fans and admirers.
"Derpy Hooves" has been the fan given name for a unique animated flop that quickly became a sensation due to her unique goggly-eyes. Since then, she has been a sorta 'Where is Waldo' secret background character and has even earned herself a quick little speaking line in an episode "The Last Round-Up".
This is a complete JOY to all the fans of the clumsy and lovable mare.
But something went horribly wrong.
HASBRO - for reasons unclear and speculated, has decided to remove the episode from iTunes and Broadcasting and re-edited the scene with a new voice, name unmentioned, and EYES UN-DERPED.
Why? Why would they remove such a lovable character from a kids cartoon show?
Considering how many 'other' male based characters there are out there on television who act just as if not MORE asinine and comical than her.
What are these reasons? Why would Hasbro remove and change what has been a loving dedication to fans!?
How many male characters on TV are there that act stupid?
Oh...about hundred of them!
But the first time a female 'dopey' character becomes a sensation, 'PEOPLE' get upset.
So much for 'Love and Tolerance'.
I mean come on!
If they remove Derpy Hooves, they would pretty much have to remove all the other 'stupid' characters on TV.
These Characters are genuinely considered 'Retarded' or 'Stupid'.
Homer - The Simpsons
Officer Wiggems - The Simpsons
Ralph Wiggems - The Simpsons
Ed - Ed Edd n Eddy
Billy - Billy and Mandy
Pinkey - Pinkey and the Brain
Fry - Futurama
Daffy Duck - Looney Tunes
Goofy - Disney
Even the names "Daffy" and "Goofy" are words of direct meaning to silliness.
"Derp" is an internet created term often used for casual cellphone chatting.
ex: "I just derped on my math test".
There's something wrong with this world.
Derpy's removal is an example that people just don't know how to be loving and tolerable and basically just like to bitch.
Well...goodbye Derpy Hooves
Another issue is the word..."Derp". Why is that such an offense word?
It's like calling someone 'gay' has generally been considered a word for derogatory insult. But that's changing.
So...really now. The word is made up. It's like calling someone 'Goofy' is suddenly offense.
This is so stupid man.
I want to fight for this.
1. For gender equality.
2. For the right of name 'not' being offensive.
3. For the love of animation fan-service.
4. For that lovable goof-ball.
If any animators fans of the show are reading this...I have an idea.
You should ANIMATE 'BaldDumboRat' vocal of her playing Derpy Hooves in any of her videos.
Then post it one the web.
This will hopefully get the message that...well...this is stupid and we want Derpy back.
Worth a shot. And she does voice the bit VERY well.
update: YES! Someone listened!
work in progress.
ALRIGHT! Thanks 47times
It's working...it's working :D
