My name is Paul Miller IV. I go by the nickname “Red Card” online. I am 21 years old and a Junior at Albright College in Reading, PA.
When I was young lad, I watched a lot of cartoons on television. In my opinion, the late 1980’s, 90’s, and early 2000’s were best era for television and/or film animation.
I was born in 1994, and I’ve been a cartoon enthusiast my entire life. I especially love the Walt Disney animated films and series. The year 1994 was, of course, the year that Walt Disney’s The Lion King was released, the fifth film of the Disney Renaissance era of motion pictures of the 1990’s. Aside from Disney, I used to love some of the old shows that aired on Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network, such as The Powerpuff Girls, Dexter’s Laboratory, Spongebob Squarepants, Farily Odd Parents, and many others. I’m also a semi-otaku, my first anime that I ever saw was Pokemon when it was airing on old Saturday morning block “Kids WB.”
I’m also, what is known as, a “brony.” Bronies are fans of the television show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic which came on the air in October 2010. Of course, My Little Pony, the famous toy line franchise owned by Hasbro, has been in existence since the early 1980s. With the toy line came numerous animated series’ and television specials, spanning 4 generations for the past 31 years. Friendship is Magic is the franchise’s 4th Generation, and has gained a large and unprecedented fanbase known as “bronies.” The majority of bronies are male, averaging an age of about 25-35 years old. This fandom is still growing, but I’ll get to more about that when I review it.
About twice each week, I will be critiquing/reviewing of the old cartoons that I grew up with, and even some that aired before I was born. I encourage your opinions of the shows that I will cover in the comments section of each blog post.
