I disagree. The cartoons in the 90s were excellent but they also had really great anime as well. (Think Neon Genesis Evangelion, Dragon Ball Z, Yu Yu Hakusho, One Piece, etc.). The anime today are pretty great too like: Code Geass, Death Note, Clannad, etc.Hi, i just notice that the cartoons that we are watching back then are more good that the anime that kids watch this days...
what do you think?
You're right, anime in Japanese just means cartoons but if you ask some people they'll be all elitist and say that anime is specifically Japanese cartoons. It's all cartoons in the end.Animies are not cartoons? Since when?
I thought anime meant "Asian Cartoons".
Funny, my son (5) is the same. He loooves Tom and Jerry. And he is warming up to Road Runner/ Coyote cartoons. I think all kids like seeing the antagonist in pain. Schadenfreude is fun!Even though my kids watch some shows like Dora and Yo Gabba Gabba, their all time fav is Tom and Jerry.
I grew up with cartoons only on Sat mornings. I think cartoons today (at least some) have a education slant to them in some ways so I guess it's good that some channels have them going 24/7.
