Well from a technical standpoint they are the same. However western animation is not as bold as japanese animation. More studios are starting to take notice that western audiences want more mature and adult themed animation.

Anime translates into "cartoon" in English, OOOH!
Who gives a shit if someone who's never watched anime is ignorant?

anime=cartoons
manga=comic
it's a simple translation anyone could do.
sure there are a lot of mature anime, but there is also cartoons/anime geared toward children in Japan,
just like there are more and more "mature" anime/cartoons in America.

and if we get down to it Family Guy is anime according to japan.

Anime is just a contracted word of animation that Japan made and Japan LOVES to contract long words so it can be easier said like Famicom(Family Computer) and Comiket (Comic Market).

Cartoons and Anime? They are technically the same just that some people prefer to call them the way that suits their fancy. I mean I CAN call anime, cartoons if I wanted to and vice versa or even "moving drawings". I don't know what the fuss is all about that people don't like how others label animations.

I'm actually more annoyed by the fact that people seem to think that all anime is hentai.

Anime is "Japanese Animated Cartoons"

The problem with the word "cartoon" is in western society, the word is mainly used to describe animated television shows for children.

I got a friend who's a cartoonist. All I know is cartoon is different from animated cartoon or anime.

And I get upset wen people are to wilfully ignorant about the meaning of words. Like the fact the word animeeshun or more well known as anime means all animated shows. The Japanese call bugs bunny anime, they call X-Men anime, they call zoids anime, they call justice league anime.!!!!!! It matters not where it is from. As long as it is animated its ANIME! or CARTOON!
