I loved 科學小飛俠 and 無敵鐵金剛 so much when I was little. I even can sing the theme songs. 小甜甜 was also super popular but it's for girls so I only watched it a little but it turned out to be so good. These Japanese products are not cartoons but anime if you want to be specific. The following info is from chatGPT.

Cartoons and anime are both forms of animated entertainment, but they have distinct characteristics that set them apart. Here are some key differences between the two:

1. Origin and Cultural Background:
- Cartoons: The term "cartoon" typically refers to animated works originating from Western countries, such as the United States, Canada, or European nations. They have a long history in Western animation and are often associated with humor and light-hearted storytelling.
- Anime: Anime refers to animated works originating from Japan. It has a unique visual style and storytelling approach that sets it apart from Western cartoons. Anime encompasses a wide range of genres and can include diverse themes, from action and fantasy to romance and science fiction.

2. Artistic Style:
- Cartoons: Western cartoons often feature simplified, exaggerated, and more caricature-like art styles. They tend to use bold colors and emphasize humor and slapstick elements.
- Anime: Anime has a distinctive art style characterized by vibrant colors, detailed backgrounds, expressive characters with large eyes, and a wide range of visual styles. It can vary from realistic to highly stylized, depending on the specific anime series or film.

3. Target Audience and Themes:
- Cartoons: Cartoons are typically produced for a wide range of audiences, including children, teenagers, and adults. They cover various themes and genres, ranging from educational content for kids to sitcoms and adult-oriented animations.
- Anime: While anime can target different age groups, it often caters to a diverse audience that includes both young and adult viewers. Anime explores a wide range of themes and genres, including coming-of-age stories, action, drama, romance, fantasy, and even mature or darker themes.

4. Storytelling and Narrative Structure:
- Cartoons: Western cartoons tend to have self-contained episodes or short story arcs. They often follow a more episodic format, with less emphasis on long, continuous narratives.
- Anime: Anime series can have both episodic and serialized formats. Many anime shows have longer story arcs spanning multiple episodes or even multiple seasons, allowing for more in-depth character development and complex narratives.

It's important to note that these are generalizations, and there can be overlap and exceptions. Some anime may exhibit a more cartoonish style, and some Western animations may adopt certain anime elements. Ultimately, the distinction between cartoons and anime is primarily rooted in their cultural origins, artistic styles, and storytelling traditions.
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
