I don't get why cartoons still exist this day and age. the whole point of western cartoons is to look as over the top and cartoony as possible. They aren't supposed to be attractive or realistic looking for the most part. How the hell can you get money from that? even if you do it as cheaply as possible its still lost cash.

not every cartoon can be a toddler goldmine like pa Patrol, so, How do they do it? just addspace?

Corporatism, not capitalism, is the biggest factor in this. And it even happens in Japan, if you look at the abysmal work in Dragon Ball Super that often crops up it's because the animators were given nightmarish deadlines to meet and it reflected that fact in their work.
America is the worst example because these networks want the cheapest and easiest to produce product to peddle to retarded American children, and that's coming from an American.

It's typically the networks at fault for the state of cartoons, for sure. Quick output and merch for the kids. Forget narrative and focus on episodic basic storytelling. If it's colourful and has low-level humour the kids will enjoy it.

Cartoons can be good when networks give their creators at least a degree of freedom. See ATLA, Samurai Jack, etc.

i may be wrong but i think the future for visual media in general is in the west; japan is stagnating while western artists that i see everywhere on the internet that grew up with both japanese/western influences will eventually become the next in charge of the animation/visual media world. in my opinion the most appealing artworks these days are from that generation of people.
as i said i may be wrong tho

Maybe the problem is that man children (and "women children" ) are still trying to watch cartoons that's marketed towards a younger demographic whose main purpose is to sell toys to?

VERY low IQ posts. While the US has 9 ugly shows and maybe 1 decent one, Japan releases a hundred anime PLUS every season there are a few "cartoony" ones just like the West.
That's right, even if you want to defend your Steven Universe garbage, Japan ALSO MAKES simple stuff for children. Just see for yourself:
https://myanimelist.net/anime/season

Shin-chan and Saze-chan, which are still ongoing classics.
Bonobono, airing since 2016. The list goes on and on, pic related.

If the West had good cartoons to make some volume, they would eclipse all this Calarts toxic waste, just like the best anime make these kiddy Japanese shows completely obscure.

Also if you're going to do a comparison using Japans seasonal chart, you shouldn't have used post COVID-19. We're at an all time low when it comes to releases right now. Way less than what we had a few years ago.

Transformers was an affect of capitalism, particularly corporatism, as a means to sell more product to the youth.

Regardless, in the west the ratio is still retarded.
9 bad shows 1 decent one is a pretty realistic way of putting it.

They shove sodomy and LGBT but it's okay because Japan does it. Big mouth has a scene where they're naked in a public bath when virtually every single anime has underage girls naked in public baths or their own bathroom touching their privates.
