Man, this page depresses me. Cartoons these days are mostly flash or anime-based.

The article is written like a publicity piece for TMS.

For one thing, Mighty Orbots and Galaxy High use the same limited animation and awful writing that's used in the 70s and 80s shows you're trying to contrast with the renaissance.

What's more, the shows The Wuzzles, Adventures Of The Gummi Bears and DuckTales, Tiny Toon Adventures, Batman The Animated Series and Animaniacs were only inbetweened by TMS. They weren't directed, written, or produced by TMS.

Little snippets around the article like "TMS produced efforts... Tiny Toon Adventures and Animaniacs" make this entire article misleading, as if it was written by a TMS fan in order to glamorize TMS.

Well, TMS did do alot of work, but anyway.

1. You options may be fine, but said shows did have impact.

2. TMS always throw out the US pre production sheets and redid it them selfs, TMS's views on the US staff tends to be "They don't know what there doing" or "They think they know everything, but we show them", there were some people that they did like of course but when shows came back from TMS the US staff members tend to say "Hey!, I did not board it like that" and/or "I did not ask for said colors" (as was the case with Kazuhide Tomonaga's Feet Of Clay:Part 2) and/or "Hey!, I did not time it like that" and ect,; but since the US staff was so amazed by it, they leave it it, also if you ever watch the credits for stuff like The Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries, TMS' sole Kids' WB! episode of Animaniacs (Cutie and the Beast), The New Batman Adventures and Superman: The Animated Series'' you will find things like storyboards artists, directors, animation directors and Key Animation, far far away from inbetweening.

3. If it was not for Tiny Toon Adventures, TMS will be out of business, as TMS lost alot of money on Little Nemo.

By the way, I'm not Mr-Famicom/Mega Taco Van86, I do know him however and he is a very nice guy; And like him, we study Japanese animation alot, so next time you say something, look it up next time, and also, don't post your own views as facts.

Doing one storyboard for Animaniacs makes it a co-production with TMS? Yeah, no. With the mods' blessing ( ) I'm going to edit this article.

TMS manly did Storyboard Revisions on The Tom Ruegger stuff, The Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries and Fox Kids Batman: The Animated Series (but they were un credited), but they were full on board artists on Kids' WB! Batman and Superman: The Animated Series.

Does Hayao Miyazaki really belong in this article? I don't really believe he was influenced by whatever happened in the American industry in the 80's.
05:15:05 PM Apr 12th 2010
Well he was making animation at the time...
10:34:10 AM Apr 13th 2010
The article seems to be saying that most of the good things that happened in animation at this time period were in spite of American industry standards in the eighties, not because of them.

But having Hayao Miyazaki in the animation renessaince article is like saying that Alfred Hitchcok's Birds is a French New Wave film because it was made around the same time or Dragon Ball is Bronze age comic. I've always understood that The Renaissance Age Of Animation refers to US animation that aspired to have the same standards that the golden age cartoons had. Should we put Akira or any other high quality Japanese animation made during The Renaissance Age Of Animation also in the article?

My intention of this article when i was making it as well as the other History of Animation pages was to refer to animation as a whole during this time period, generally western animation of course (regardless of quality and/or whether or not it was trying to live up to Golden Age Of Animation standards) with a few foriegn examples, like yes, Hayao Miyazaki films for example. Being relevant, impacting and popular over here also helps.

Bottom line: Keep the japanese animation examples here. They're fine on the other history of animation pages, theres no reason to remove them here.

I just think that Miyazaki has influenced more Millennium age western animation than The Renaissance Age. Anime has its own eras like late 70's and early 80's anime boom, post-Akira era and so on. Most big film industries also have their golden age which is usually studio driven and more director driven new wave but not necessarily at the same time.

Yes, Miyazaki belongs hear, this age was started by a Japanese studio (TMS), and Miyazaki was a major part to this era.

So. Uh. Did you miss the part above where this entire article is skewed to be a publicity piece for TMS when they actually had very little to do with anything?
