Reasons Why American Cartoons Are Not Overrated

I have seen a few people say American cartoons are overrated and I'm shocked that people would think that because of all the backlash they get.

The Top Ten

1 More people like Japanese anime

It makes no sense that people call American cartoons overrated, yet they call anime underrated when more people like anime than American cartoons. THIS REASON HAS NO HATE DEDICATED TO ANY OTAKU. I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING AGAINST THEM OR ANIME ITSELF. - YakkoWakkoDot

I'm fairly certain this isn't true, families from 100s of different countries love the likes of looney tunes and the Simpsons, way more than people who watch Anime

After I wrote this list I found out that people in Japan are more Disney obessed than the average American - YakkoWakkoDot

2 They keep getting hated on

American cartoons of today and the 90s get hated on by those people who were kids were Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry and Yogi Bear were making new episodes and the 90s are getting hate from the people who like today's cartoons because it was made in the 90's and they are tired of hearing the decade being praised. Nothing is wrong with liking today's cartoons, they are still great yet underrated. - YakkoWakkoDot

Cartoons like Babar, Wander Over Yonder and etc get too much hate.

3 They have great animation

In fact, anime has horrible animation. The characters don't use they're tongues to talk! Japanese people are so lazy they can't put facial expressions on the characters. Plus, American animation has great humor. Anime is so serious and all sci-Fi fantasy nonsense. :(

The very fact that you said that "Anime has horrible animation" makes your entire comment completely ridiculous.

Some people say that cartoon styles are unappealing. Have they ever watched anything made by Disney? Snow White, Fantasia, their cartoons, Gravity Falls, The 7D, Dave the Barbarian, Beauty and The Beast, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, Frozen Lion King? What about looney tunes, tom and jerry, and animaniacs and tiny toons. All these shows and may more have great styles and tons of energy to it. - YakkoWakkoDot

Steven Universe has a great art style

4 Adults watch them too

People say that since American cartoons are for kids and adults watch them, that makes it overrated. No it doesn't. Adults can watch American cartoons. There is nothing wrong with that. There are some cartoons that were made just for adults like Family Guy or Futurama. There are also cartoons that were made for both kids and adults like Animaniacs, Looney Tunes, Duck Tales, Gravity Falls, The 7D, The Simpsons, Adventure Time, The classic disney cartoons from the 30s-50s and many more. - YakkoWakkoDot

5 They are not forgotten

Tons of people remember shows like Underdog, Top Cat, Captain Caveman, and so forth. You're just asking the wrong people who aren't that into American cartoons. - YakkoWakkoDot

6 Making spinoffs of shows from the 30s and 40s doesn't make it overrated

Another reason people say their overrated is because they take old shows like Tom and Jerry and Looney Tunes and make countless spinoffs. That doesn't make it overrated, that means someone who really liked this show wanted these characters to be more well known then they already were and to bring them in to this generation without being all cool and hip and things like that. - YakkoWakkoDot

7 There are good shows on today

They are tons of good cartoons and movies that were made today like Frozen. Winnie the Pooh, Wreck-it-Ralph, Tangled, Gravity Falls, The 7D, Adventure Time, The Amazing World of Gumball, The Tom and Jerry Show, Regular Show, Fish Hooks, and many more. - YakkoWakkoDot

Nope the visitor Meant the bad shows. And I Know It!

Hey visitor They All suck But What YakkoWakkoDot does not suck. And no offensive But Star Vs The Forces Of Evil Has animal abuse. So I guess you Mean These Are Bad Shows

Hey visitor They all suck. And no offensive, but Star Vs The Forces Of Evil has animal abuse. So I guess you these shows suck

8 There are not as many fart jokes as you say

I have barely heard any fart jokes in the cartoons of today or cartoons of the 90s or 30s and 40s and 50s. Most of those jokes come from the cartoons that are actually bad like Fanboy and Chum Chum or Breadwinners or Sanjay and Craig. - YakkoWakkoDot

9 They help us get out of depression

If people are sad, they mostly go to a good cartoon to make them laugh or cheer up, or they decide to watch the magic of disney again. Yes you can do this with Japanese anime to except the magic of disney part. - YakkoWakkoDot

Recently I had a bad fight with my boyfriend (we are back together now, yay). Meanwhile, I was in the middle of watching Total Drama Presents: The Ridonculous Race. I watched a few episodes, and all the feelings of hate, betrayal and depression had faded away for the next 24 hours. Thanks to the show I only took three days to recover and it has topped my leaderboard of best Total Drama seasons. World Tour has been dropped to number two! - Wolftail

10 Rocko's Modern Life is highly underrated by the general populace

I actually think Rocko is reaching the overrated territory (even though I like this show). If you want to see an underrated cartoon, look at Star vs. the Forces of Evil.

The Contenders

11 They are what most of us grew up on

Cartoons are special to people because they aren't realistic. Most of us grew up on the magic of Disney and the hilarity of Warner Brothers. We can use are imaginations that we are in the shows they make.. You can do this with Japanese Anime too, but more people grew up on American cartoons. - YakkoWakkoDot

12 Gravity Falls and Regular Show are the only good shows

Adventure Time, Phineas and Ferb, The 7D, and the amazing world of gumball is pretty good to. - YakkoWakkoDot

Someone forgot to mention Rick And Morty and Star Vs. The Forces Of Evil.

To the person who made this list, there's a variaty of amazing shows today like Steven Universe, Star vs the forces of evil, Adventure time, Wander over yonder, The amazing world of gumball, We bare bears, Star wars rebels, etc. You just hadn't given them a chance yet, but trust me, once you do, yoy won't regret it ; )

Steven Universe,Avatar,Ed Edd n Eddy are all great too. - Skullkid755

13 Steven Universe and Gravity Falls are stellar

Steven Universe is better :P
