A cartoon is an anime, but an Amercian animation instead of a Japanese animation


technically yes,. but some viewers have different perspective about that matter,.. as for me
(geometrically speaking) anime is similar to cartoons but not congruent)
hmm,. like in english,. using the words high and tall...

Ahh so very true O:

Though people can not deny that the only real difference is that they are made in two countries.

Anime and Cartoons are the made the same way, with the same programs, voice actors[in their own language], etc. O;

yeah,..
well, most people hate it when someone calls anime, cartoons,. because, what's stuck in their mind is that cartoons are for children in pre-school(or something like that)

Futurama
The Simpsons

Those would be my favorite.

Avatar, on the other hand, is the Code Geass of cartoons.

The closest thing I've seen so far to a non-japanese anime would have to be Avatar: The Last Airbender. It's pretty good.

Anime isnt short for Japanese animation, in japanese, the english word animation in Katakana uses the characters A, NI, ME, SHO, N

They shortened this to only Anime.... this doesnt mean it's japanese animation. Even though they are the only ones who started using this term, it's because thats the way they say it, to avoid saying animeshon which is longer. If your going to ask if theres any popular anime that is not made in japan thats the same as asking if there are other animations not made in japan. So for the people who say anime = japanese animation they are close but wrong.

"In Japan, the term does not specify an animation's nation of origin or style; instead, it is used as a blanket term to refer to all forms of animation from around the world" (Referring to the word "anime")

In English, dictionary sources define anime as "a Japanese style of motion-picture animation" or "a style of animation developed in Japan".



ON TOPIC : Totally spies, Avatar? i think, southpark, Clifford?(lawls), arthur, tons of other kid shows, all "ANIME"
