My Little Pony

Dear Heather,
Why have "The Smurfs" and "My Little Pony" enjoyed such a resurgence in popularity?

Dear Lisa,
Both "The Smurfs" and "My Little Pony" represent the fantastical world of childhood that many adults and children love. Living in a dreamland of blue nymphs and plastic ponies is quite natural for Americans passing on 1980s pop cultural traditions to their offspring-a tribute to their own nostalgic coming of age.
