23 Actually Funny

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

24 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.

29 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.

30 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.

31 More Diversity
32 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.

35 Nostalgia

I watch both anime and American cartoons, and I will agree that anime can have deeper stories, but no amount of character depth will ever replace the feel good charm I get whenever I watch/remember the cartoons of my childhood

36 No Boring Conversation
37 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.

38 Not as Much Death
39 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

40 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.
