I have a potentially dumb question, but are western cartoons as a monolithic industry dying?
I’m obviously not saying that cartoons as a whole are going to die out, but rather if you look at the number of tv cartoons 2015 vs 1990 there has been a very obvious drastic decline. Is there anything that can stop the decline or are we just going to have to wait for it to eventually bottom out?
 
Dying? No.
 
I’m sensing a rebirth soon, with all these great shows coming out since the start of the decade and more coming out every so often, we’ll have some that stand the test of time. I think less than a handful will stand out in the next 20 years or so as “legendary” cartoons but we’ll have some that we’ll remember for years to come and that’s a good thing.
 
Unlike the time period from about 2005-2009, which RAPIDLY became a pit of absolute nothing that we didn’t quite recover from until about 2012.

I heard alex hirsch is considering going to CN for his next cartoon when gravity falls ends in 2017
 
cite your goddamn sources for once, who said Gravity Falls is gonna end in 2017?

I can’t because I’m on WII U :’( and 2017 is logical because he is planning 3 seasons plus with all the delays between episodes

@EHAN  
its speculation for the most part because his friends with pen ward, JG quintel, rebecca sugar and pat mchale so it seems like a possibility

So basically for a couple years it was the apocalypse for cartoons, but a number of cartoons currently airing are popular enough to keep the companies afloat for now and that for now the companies don’t have to worry financially?
 
 
Not to sound like a weab, but one of the long standing theories as to one of the causes for the cartoon decline was that it happened exactly at the same time as the popularization of anime. If the popularization of anime in the west didn’t in any way at least attribute to the decline then it’s one hell of a coincidence.
 
 
Personally I don’t think there will in the long run be a revival of traditional cartoons because most cartoons nowadays are used with say flash or such cough mlp cough and the other thing is that people are starting to figure out how to make 3d rendered models look 2d.
 
I know it’s not a western cartoons but instead a video game, but it does illustrate my point:

It’s just my personal opinion, but I think what is probably going to happen to cartoon animation in the long run is the same thing happening to pretty much all animation in that it’s eventually going to be replaced with cgi.
 
Don’t get me wrong; I do think “cartoons” won’t ever go away, but rather traditional 2d cartoons that are actually 2d aren’t going to rebound cause people have figured out how to make 3d computer models look 2d. The reason why that style of “cartoons” is taking so long is that most of the people currently working on cartoons have never touched 3d animating/modeling in their lives so it’s a hell of a jump to go from 2d flash cartoons to 3d modeling. It’s probably going to be a couple years until 2d is replaced out though cause a lot of those people working on cartoons have to completely relearn how to animate again.

Yeah I don’t think traditional animation is gonna last long, it’s just much easier to not draw every frame individually, and it’s easier these days to gain access to workarounds.
 
And I don’t think anime caused the decline in western animation, more so the cartoon making stations just started putting live action show after live action show onto the air so they let the cartoons die out while the live action stuff flooded the market for that time. Whatever cartoons during that time period were either negatively received or drowned in the sea of live action. Sure the popularization of anime might have contributed, but only very slightly. Not enough to make a major difference.

Or in other words, thoughts on the 90’s~onwards era of “cool” shows like Rocket Power, Johnny Test, Weekenders, etc?
