By my recollection, it was produced in Canada, but maybe I'm thinking of another show.

Either way, one would first have to define the different between either of those terms, as both are animated pictures of the drawn variety. One just associates the word 'anime' (a Japanese word I recall) to any animation coming from Japan. It is no different whatsoever than any other animation from anywhere else other than the certain stylistic queues that relate to its' many predecessors. And no, in no way did one genre inspire the other, nor is one 'better' than the other in any way shape or form. All animations evolved from different places using different means and were inspired by anything and everything. Most seem to think western animation is 'Disney' and nothing else, not even thinking of all the other various studios who have produced countless works throughout history.

it dosent have the anime stile in it so i call it a cartoon, tho its a damn good one
Posted 10/23/08
it's a cartoon.
but in my opinion, it's a cartoon with anime-influenced art.
i.e. the eyes of the chara's.

Anime is a Japanese styled Cartoon.
Basically That is what avatar is.

Just because it wasn't made in America doesn't mean it isn't considered an anime.

The word anime comes from the French word animé, which means animated. All cartoons are considered anime it's just the Japanese term for cartoon.
