Hey. Anime ain't "cartoons". We created that specific form, the shining
examples of them being the shorts from WB, MGM and Disney during the '40s and
'50s. Nothing out right now besides Southpark can even come close. We ain't
worth a shit, really, for episodic animation, no, I am ashamed to say. We
certainly are not lacking in money or talent. And I haven't seen one bit of any
anime that can approach the humor content of a run of the mill Daffy Duck
