Is there a particular standard for whether or not a series that is both literature and later adapted to animation goes under which namespace? I don't understand why Arthur
was put in western animation and Franklin
was put in literature, even though Franklin
is pretty much just as much adaptation displaced.
For that matter, the decision on such things seems to be pretty hodgepodge - for example, Max and Ruby
is under western animation even though it started as books and Babar
is under literature, even though a strong argument could be made in favor of animation, with at least two film and two different television series, one of them a recent CGI offering.
