    No, Spongebob is an American Cartoon.

    Unfortunately, being made in Japan is not by itself, an indication if a series is Anime... the cartoon series 'Batman Beyond', 'X-Men Evolution' and 'GI Joe Sigma 6' were all animated by Japanese studios, but clearly are not Anime, as they were not written and targeted for a Japanese audience. On the other hand, the upcoming 'Space Battleship Yamato' sequel (which is definitely a Japanese Anime iconic series) is being produced by a Korean animation studio... And then you have these hybrids that are difficult to classify, such as the 'Witchblade' series, which is based on an American comic book franchise, but is clearly targeted for a Japanese audience. And the 'Highlander: The Search for Vengeance' movie that is based on a Hollywood TV series...

    Nor does a story based plot a requirement for Anime as well, Shows like Azumanga Daioh for example are evidence of that.

    Not likely. It hardly has the plot of a modern anime, nor does it contain the same brand of humor. And as we all know, it's American.

    Good animation does not equal anime. There is this tendency among otaku that there is no good American animation and therefore if some American animation is. Good it must barrow or be made like an anime. But remember earlier anime was influenced by Walt Disney.
