I agree with peach follow and arianna. While a vast majority of the animation I like is anime, that does not mean that Western animation does not have anything to offer. To paraphrase Bricken from Anime Insider, someone who believes that the American version has nothing to offer is as close-minded as someone who refuses to watch anime. Besides you are comparing apples to oranges in a way because in the united states the cultural norm is that animation is for children. But there is An American Tail, Heavy metal, Family guy, and of course the Simpsons, and other examples of american animation that I hold near and dear even decades after they have come out.
