I don't know if I agree with you here, for example, this summer's Iron
Giant did an excellent job of blending CG and animation and still having it
look like animation. Obviously a fully CG show would have a much harder
time accomplishing this, especially if everyone has preformed conceptions
from the original animated series, but as a proof of concept I think that
the movie worked pretty well.
