I wonder... if I were to change the past so that I started watching My Little Pony now, with no prior knowledge thereof... would I see Pinkie differently?

As it stands, she's essentially the founding member (though not the first, chronologically, even in my experience) of a brain-category that has some relation to the "manic pixie dream girl" trope, but, well... the four foremost members of that category are Ty Lee of A:TLA, Pinkie Pie, Nora Valkyrie of RWBY, and Tess Fontana of Eureka. And the latter two are my current favorite members of their respective casts, whereas Pinkie is pretty near the bottom.

Don't get me wrong, I realize there are substantial differences between the four. And I don't see any way I could prefer Pinkie to Twilight, let alone Fluttershy. But it seems rather odd for the same brain-category of this type to contain both extremes.
