>Western animation

...what Western Animation? Except for a handful of Disney full-length animated movies, (aesthetically pleasing) Western animation is practically non-existant.

Western kiddy cartoons, such as the already mentioned Doug, Red and Stimpy, Rocko, Adventure Time, Simpsons, etc., are completely dialog-driven and rely on a 22-minute barrage of jokes to hold the viewer's attention and are completely devoid of any aesthetic value. The characters are so completely stylized that they lack any resemblance to living beings; they are grotesque concatenations of geometric shapes more than anything.

In anime, a human actually looks like a human and that's what's important to me. I can't stand Western animation because all modern cartoons are pretty much comedies and I want to appreciate the artstyle and not the plays on words. If I wanted to appreciate dialog I'd read a novel or a play.
