The Contenders: Page 2

21 Hanna-Barbera Hanna-Barbera Hanna-Barbera Productions, Inc., was an American animation studio that dominated American television animation for three decades in the mid-to-late 20th century, founded in 1957 by former Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer animation directors William Hanna and Joseph Barbera and live-action director George Sidney more.
22 Unoriginality
23 Anime Was Influenced by American Cartoons

You forgot to add "and vise-versa."


24 Western Cartoons Have More Accomplishments

Western animation achieved with Max Fleischer's rotoscoping and the first live action/animation hybrid cartoon, Out of the inkwell. Also Disney made the first full-length animated feature film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

25 Actually Funny

Sure western animations have dumb toilet humor nowadays, but the old spongebob episodes are extremely funny

Anime is not that funny, just Dorito chin guys and whiny high pitched girl Mary Sues. I also think the Digimon anime is BETTER than the Pokemon anime. It's ok to disagree but please respect my opinion - Lunala

26 Chuck Jones

When people say the animation for anime is better, I remember the beautiful movies or cartoons he animated for us when he was alive and I wonder what those anime fanboys are smoking. He is such a great animator, that he even made flash animation look really good and this was when it was just starting out.

So what? Even with limited animation, animated movie can be great. - KT1

Naruto Bleach One Piece Fairy Tail DBZ All of theses are animated and amazing

Nope all anime animation sucks and is bland. It looks unappealing and every anime has limited animation.

So is Studio Pierott

30 More Pleasing to Watch

I can't just sit on the couch, turn on my T.V. and casually watch Anime. With American cartoons you can come right in the middle and still understand everything. Anime always has some cliffhanger every single episode.

31 Better Writing, Less Time

Anime episodes are also 20 to30 minutes long...

How long is an anime episode, 60 minutes? American cartoons are 20 minutes, maybe even less, and they rarely ever have two-parters.

32 For All Ages

Excluding shows like Family Guy or South Park, American cartoons can be viewed and enjoyed by all ages. I'm pretty sure your kid would get bored if you made him watch anime. Mainly because it's Japanese and he won't understand.

An example is Teen Titans - PeeledBanana

There are dubbed versions you know

33 Voice Actors

American cartoons have amazing voice actors who can do so many different voices! All anime voice actors can do are boys who just hit puberty and high pitched girls.

34 Romance

Why does Anime always need some romantic story? Can't you just watch something casually and just laugh? I don't need no "emotional depth".

35 The Fanboys

I hate you fanboys, and even worse, you fangirls who's always "shipping" two male characters to show how "open minded" you are. And you see yourself as a mature fanbase, but no one is allowed to dislike Anime? And what is an Otaco?

36 Fan Art

I hate it when you take American cartoons and draw them in anime style. Mostly South Park, that ticks me off. It's not supposed to be a "cute" show. Also, stop shipping Cartman amd Kyle.

No,it's not the best thing unfortunately:adventure time is an American cartoon and some works of "art" on the internet reduce to you despair!

Sorry but fanart isn't the best thing about western animation...look at those adventure time fanworks on the net:some are good but some others are so mad that it's a true euphemism to call them dishonors!

Better fanart? I don't think so:the internet is full of dishonorable adventure time fanworks!

37 More Diversity
38 No Weird Conventions

Keep in mind I am really, really, REALLY trying not to be a hater right now but, weird conventions?! Well then, if that's the case than we can just throw things like E3 and Comic-con into the fire. No matter what its for, their will always be people cosplaying, buying merchandise, and interviews with the creators.
