As of early 2016 I am seeing more and more decline in quality/quantity of cartoons.
It kinda sucks to see all these shows that we used to watch are vanishing, as well as new ones are rather poor quality, or just live action shows.

Some new western shows that have stirred the market were:
Legend of Korra
Star vs the Forces of Evil
Gravity Falls(which just ended)
Steven Universe


Most cartoon channels are now moving more towards live action, and Cartoon Network is either importing shows,or just made a few good ones, and many reboots/ poor quality ones.

What's your guy's opinions on the decline of western cartoons and animation?

The quality is definitely decreasing. But then again, the western animation has never superceded the primary eastern medium, anime. The North America especially has taken a liking to anime, so do not expect too many good cartoons anymore.

It is sad to see a childhood prospect lose momentum though.

For a cartoon with 'adult humour' I suggest Rick and Morty, one of the funniest things ever aired

Twinneh, sorry to say.

Into a trash they go.

Teen Titans Go is pretty much a watered down version. The new Scooby-doo is too.

Seriously,not art style,but the cartoon plots and story scene were looked like traced on japanese cartoon,directly.

Western animation? Um.. all I can say is that Cartoon Network is now appealing to younger kids, even younger than before. It's probably why I watch Western animation, because the quality is still pretty good.

What on earth are you talking about? Adventure Time, Steven Universe, Regular Show, are all appealing to an OLDER audience, not younger.

Well, it's possible because the generation has changed. My generation and the previous generations used to spend their time watching tv for their spare time, but nowadays the kids have the internet to keep them entertained. It's no longer the tv which satisfies your boredom.

I watched Cartoons when i was a little kid. The population is starting to grow up and even little kids start to have their own smart devices to play on, basically meaning that Video games are there to replace Cartoons.
However, Animes are still very alive.

I don't really get why people get so addicted to Steven Universe, but it seems that they really enjoy it.
I must be pretty weird.

I don't really like it. :p

Backyardigans is the best. I never figured out what most of them actually were. There was a moose or something…weird show…

What's your guy's opinions on the decline of western cartoons and animation?

I don't see how there has been a decline. In fact, I feel like cartoons have gotten better over the past several years: Steven Universe, Wonder over Yonder, Rick and Morty, Gumball, We Bare Bears, Harvey Beaks, Archer, Bojack Horseman, Star vs. The Forces of Evil, Gravity Falls (which ended just recently) TMNT, (2012), Miraculous Ladybug, etc.

Also, are you stuck in the past? You say "Some cartoons that stirred the western animation market were...." Why do you say "were" and then include Steven Universe and Star vs. The Forces of Evil, when they are not finished yet? Steven Universe will have new episodes soon, and Star vs. The Forces of Evil has a season 2 on its way. Yes we have crappy shows out nowadays, but if that's all you focus on, than that is all you will get. Teen Titans Go! and Breadwinners do not present all modern cartoons, just like Mega babies did not define 90's and early 2000's cartoons. Honestly, it does sound like you're longing for your childhood past shows and using that to judge current cartoons.

The quality of Cartoon Network has gone down quite a bit these past few years.
I haven't really watched Nick though, last I checked they still made decent shows, but I grew up on Nicktoons and late 90's Cartoon Network cartoons.
Although anime is pretty good.

Gravity Falls and Avatar: The last Airbender (Nickelodeon) were just absolute bomb.

Gravity Fall was the best cartoon ever, it was so emotional and memories come back.
Season 1 of Gravity Falls, when I just started watching was cool, until I discovered secrets.
It wasn't just an old and boring cartoon, it was way more.

Especially the wait for a new season pumped me up.

Steven Universe is the best. I have a list of the current good things they're showing.

Steven Universe
We Bare Bares
Regular Show (old episodes)
Adventure Time (old episodes)
The Amazing World of Gumball (old episodes)
Spongebob (old episodes)
Gravity Falls

Here are the OK shows:
Clarence (makes me laugh from time to time)
Pokemon
That Alvin thing on nickelodean.
Most of the Disney stuff

Here are... the extreme trash (worst to lesser of the evils)
Breadwinners
Pickle and Peanut
Teen Titans Go!
Be Cool, Scooby Doo
Sanjay and Craig

Oh, they're bringing back the Powerpuff Girls. I'm giving cartoon network a chance. Let's just hope they didn't replace every original creater with chimpanzees like they did with Teen Titans.
