We talked about the differences between cartoons and anime.
I think that basicaly the difference is characterized by the culture.But the idea for anime came from the first cartoons. Some persons think that cartoons are less complicated, have different drawing styles, or other things.Other difference is related to the stories of them, cartoons are meant to entertain and "make you laugh" for short period of episodes and have no actual storyline. The stories of Anime is supposed to "teach and entertain'" an audience within one storyline(and sometimes 2) for a long(or short) period of episodes.
