I disagree that they're better. I have a love for both of them. American cartoons like Batman the Animated Series and Courage the Cowardly Dog are fantastic. Futurama and South Park are enjoyable, if you like satire. Billy and Mandy was really good for a while.
I watch American cartoons are generally for satire and parodies. I find them more laid back and their purpose being more for humour so they mostly have archetypical characters and episodic. Disney and Pixar movies lean more towards stories.
Japanese cartoons are mostly about storylines and characters, but some shows are episodic.
I'm not extremely fond of the recent cartoons but mostly the 90's is when they had the cartoons that both children and adults could watch. But it's all preference I suppose.
But if you're interested, a good American/Japanese movie is the Last Unicorn. It's story is written by the Americans, but the animation was done in Japan.

Yes, anime is a cartoon. Cartoons can use many different types of animation.
Anime means an animation in Japan. You can type anime in search for dictionary or wikipedia. If you wonder what is called for animation in America. I would prefer calling 'American cartoon' to make people understand rather than a just 'cartoon' because the word 'cartoon' is in general.
Wikipedia or google it for more details.

Disney movies are American, and they can be highly detailed. More than cartoons from Japan sometimes.
In my opinion, they're both animated cartoons really. It doesn't matter where they're from. The quality always varies.

lol of course there's a difference between anime and cartoon. anime is japanese animation, which you can think as visual novels cause they're based on the mangas. Same with cartoons, there place is comic books, but here one thing, have you ever seen cartoon have OVA or OAV's? O_o big ditto. Also anime has more of drama element in them, than cartoon, and apeal to romance more often than usual. omg I sound so vague. .don't hate this pic It's soo cute, I couldn't resist. kawaii ^.^

And that is one stupid question, Cartoons are targeted to young kids with childist humor, pointless easy to understand plots and harmless content (no foul language, sex references, blood, death, gay characters or anything that represed american parents consider harmfull for the pure minds of the inocent american children) right now there's only two types of cartoons, the stupid comedy show where stupid characters do pointless unfunny things (chowder, flapjack, ugh johnny test) and the lame oh so called action cartoon(ben 10, the secrets saturdays or something, etc) well and a couple of good adult shows family guy, venture brothers, but they're scarse

Anime on the other hand has a great variety of genders that go from children's show to teens and adults programs there's something for everybody, comedy, drama, romance, action, adventure, suspence, horror, hell, there's even porn (hentai), you like something in particular? there's an anime for you.

And lets not forget what happens when an american company tries to transform an anime into a cartoon, the result it's a disaster.(i'm looking at you 4kids. tv, go rot in hell)

Shows like Batman & Avatar I will watch ocationaly & most american cartoons are funny, but that is the only thing I like about them.

I think if there were more love put into cartoons, from any country, we could get more than they give us. I think American cartoons could potentially be good, but since it's mostly about money they generally aren't great. Craig McCracken (Powerpuff Girls, Foster's Home, Dexter's Lab) and Genndy (Dexter's Lab, Samurai Jack) put a lot of love into their so the results are normally wonderful. Even in Pixar films, there's a huge love for animation, even when it's not their own (John Lasseter of Pixar was in charge of Spirited Away).
