Teenage Toons: Horseland (2006)

There aren't that many cartoons out there geared for girls. Currently, there are only a small handful, including new shows starring 80's toy favorites My Little Pony & Strawberry Shortcake on The Hub, and this one, Horseland, back for its 2nd go-round on CBS after having split time between syndication & This TV following its first CBS run.

Yes, there are some young boys in the cast of Horseland, but the plots are more about the girls and their horses. The basic idea behind this DIC entry is to try to introduce kids to equestrian competitions, since most folks are more familiar with horse racing than show horses.

Horselandluvur (DUH!) uploaded the first portion of the series opener, "You Can't Judge a Girl by Her Limo":

Too bad these kids never made it to an Olympic equestrian event........

Rating: B-.
