Hello, this is Dan with a mini-rant... YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED...

So, I've been hearing a lot about the whole character of "Derpy Hooves," with the face that started the whole fandom, and how a lot of bronies are getting mad because she's now canon or something, and how Hasbro is getting rid of her from all the T-shirts and everything. Well, here's my thoughts on it.

First of all, I hate the show, so I can't talk, but I must say, it's dumb that they're getting rid of Derpy. If I was forced to pick a favorite pony, I'd pick Derpy. (Again, I hate the show, so don't think I'm a brony.)

But secondly, I think that there are two parties to blame behind this: Hasbro and the bronies.

Here's why.

Hasbro seems to be literally kissing the arses of the bronies. The bronies see Derpy and get on their knees and beg for Derpy to appear again, and Hasbro kisses their arses and Derpy does appear again. Then the T-shirts come out, and Derpy appears in the opening titles, and everybody loves Derpy. Then they give Derpy her first speaking role. But now, everybody hates Derpy for some reason, and are trying to get rid of her from the show, when they had just begged for her to be canon. And you know what Hasbro is doing? Kissing their arses.

So now, there's no more Derpy shirts, no more Derpy dolls, no more Derpy nothing. And you know something? It's not Derpy's fault.


Hasbro, grow a backbone and realize that you don't have to constantly kiss the arses of the fans. They aren't paying you to do it, y'know.

Apparently the reason why they're doing that is because Derpy supposedly sounds like a retarded person. :facepalm:

You know what? The fans of The Amazing World of Gumball should go ballistic on the guys who created that show, because the dad sounds like he's half-drunk, half-retarded.

...oh wait, that show doesn't have any fans. :stare:

I feel so fucking bad for `Yamino
Unlike you, I do like the show. But I can agree with you here on this whole Derpy Issue. First of all, if they begged so much for Derpy to make on official appearance on the show, then why do they bitch and complain when she actually does? One of the reasons I've heard is because of her voice. Well if Derpy is so clumsy all the time then wouldn't that voice be perfect for her? Second, this isn't the first time a character had a retarded voice. What about Billy from the Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy? That kid had a really dumb voice. Heck, the entire time he acted like the stupidest kid ever made in a cartoon and yet people didn't give two shits about it. But when Derpy comes up they start complaining and demand that she be removed. That's not only hipocrisy its also just stupid.

I heard they did get rid of her. What is she going to be called now, if not Derpy?
I think Ditsy Hooves, her original name. Which aparantly refers to her eyes, like Derpy. And everyone's okay with that -_-;

Meh, I like Derpy better myself. I'm guessing that the original, untouched version of "The Last Roundup" will be traded among bronies like The Star Wars Holiday Special from now on. :XD:

And besides, the name "Ditzy" is better than "Background Pony #1."

If they want to take Ditzy Doo(yes, I just called her Ditzy Doo. Derp is a fucking unfunny internet meme) off just because people think she's retarded, then they may as well take Rainbow Dash off because lots of people think she's a lesbian.
