Why is MLP so popular?

I've seen so many My Little Pony things on Qfeast. I don't know squat about MLP, and so could someone please explain to me what it's about and why it's popular? I know this much: there's Twilight Sparkle, Rainbow Dash, um, let's see... Pinkie Pie, er, um... something about "bronies"... Flim? Is that its name? Oh, and each pony has a cutie mark. At my house there's a DVD called "Pinkie Pie's Special Day!" from when I was little, and I don't know if that would help me understand MLP or not. Please help!

Finished all the seasons. It's popular because its amazing and it's all about the Magic Of FriendShip...which is true. I believe FriendShip is magic. So yah...

uh, do you mean Friendship is magic or generations 1-3 'cause not all of them were so popular... but with MLP already having been its own thing from for ever ago it could have helped by long time fans spreading the word out since FIM did fix some of the mistaks left from G3 which let it get popular for little girls and boys, and most disturbing adaults, which led to bronies and pegisisters.

I'll give you a quick run-through. Warning: Contains Spoilers.
So, Twilight Sparkle (unicorn) is Princess Celestia (alicorn)'s student and is sent to Ponyville to learn about friendship. There she meets Rarity (unicorn), Pinkie Pie (earth pony), Rainbow Dash (pegasus), Apple Jack (earth pony), and Fluttershy (pegasus). These are called the Mane Six (haha, puns).
The rest of the show follows the Mane Six as they become friends and learn about friendship by defeating things such See More▼

The DVD wouldn't help. MLP is a show about ponies and their everyday lives. And magic.
