Whatever happened to the great animation tradition in the United States? The style of Disney’s studios was adopted by Japanese animation pioneers, and many of the methods and techniques of animation where created here, in the most prosperous and innovative nation on earth… for now.
I found full episodes of Batman:TAS on Warner Brother's Television website, and took the opportunity to do an IMDB search for some of the names in the credits. I entered "Boyd Kirkland", only to come across this:
Coming on the tail-end of 2007 and the start of 2008, one would expect a decent amount of increase in quality in animated movies, especially considering the detail and flow of Anime that comes from across the pond, in Japan. ... The animation itself was choppy and poorly drawn. It made me believe that we haven't improved anything since the days of Thundercats and He-Man.
