You can watch cartoons from the 90's anytime, it isn't like they left somewhere. Why do you talk like you haven't seen them for years ._. ? You can see them again if you like.

._. I never thought of it that way. Probably true.

The Japanese do. Once again the term "anime" being improperly used, though you only implied it's use here.

Cartoon=Anime in Japan. Fans of Japanese animation just commonly use the term to differentiate western style and eastern style animation when in fact anime is cartoon and cartoon is anime. Don't forget there are series that don't conform to the standard style of animation that you commonly call "anime".

Anyway.. I did, however, direct my full focus at western style animation for this thread.

Just sayin. XD I think we perceive them the way we do is because more often than not it's much more in depth than just the style that makes animations different in the east and west. We feel a need to separate them because of those differences.

But, to be honest..

It's a lot easier to say anime than Japanese cartoons. And the fact is that a majority of people (not just people who watch anime, but everyone) don't understand the relation of cartoons and anime in Japan so they're going to name them differently or what they know them best as.

So in the end it's just easier to relate the term anime directly as a different type of entity to cartoons while you're talking to people with less familiarity to the subject.

When someone calls anime a cartoon, they really are correct, but they should understand the major differences.

I'm surprised no one mentioned "The Tick". It was a great superhero parody.
