Anime and Cartoons fall under the category of animation. By my understanding "cartoon" simply means "animation (albeit with a more official or televised connotation)" therefor animations made in the anime style of animation are cartoons.

No, I would put them under separate categories. But I understand they are both a type of animation. ^^

Cartoons and anime are the same, anyway just as much as manga and comics.

Yes it is a type of Cartoon. Just cuz it comes from Japan and not America doesn't mean that it's not.
What you people have to understand that as much as you love it and think it "special" at the end of the day people like me have to go into a studio and have draw frames inorder to make the American Cartoon or Japanese Cartoon -.-
Not to mention write a script, do a storyboard and animatic, before we start any kind of Animating... Plus if we want to use 3D Animation, that another set of work to do...

American Cartoons and Japanese Cartoons, generally go through the same processes when it comes down to the actual animating of the story. The only thing you can say is different is it's style, attention to details, story line variety, designs and Origin...

Plus some of you need to know, not all Anime was produced in Japan. Some were actually produced in an American Studio. You guys just chose not to pay attention.

This is a political cartoon serialized as a comic strip:
http://doonesbury.washingtonpost.com/

This is a four panel cartoon we label "manga" to denote its place of origin:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azumanga_Daioh

This is an animated gag cartoon:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Looney_Tunes

This is an animated cartoon about pirates we label "anime" to denote its place of origin:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/one-piece

This is a feature-length animated cartoon film adaptation of a fairy tale:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beauty_and_the_Beast_(1991_film)

This is a feature-length animated cartoon film we label "anime" for the above reason:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Neighbor_Totoro

There are, of course, differences in the artistic style between My Neighbor Totoro and Beauty and the Beast, or Loony Tunes and One Piece, or Garfield and Azumanga Daioh (the four panel comic). There are also cultural differences which inform what is and isn't funny, what is and isn't acceptable, and what is and isn't socially relevant as well. Absolutely none of this disqualifies Azumanga Daioh from being a four panel cartoon, My Neighbor Totoro from being an animated cartoon film, or One Piece from being an animated cartoon television series. They are each these things by definition.

Cartoon is a genre of animation.. Cartoon is the comic genre of animation..
Anime is a style of animation and not a genre.. SOOOO ANIME IS NOT A CARTOON..

I don't understand why people argue. We use the word anime to distinguish between Japanese animation and other animation. There. Problem? It arise out of a need to clearly define a distinct style of media.
