Overall, thanks in large part to economic woes mentioned above, animation as a whole is widely considered to have suffered in the late 2000s (around 2006-2009), though there are exceptions. ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' started a growing trend of high-budget animated action series for TV, and is one in a long list of popular shows that are pushing against the walls of the AnimationAgeGhetto. On a different but related front, the phenomenally successful ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' is creating a stir in large part because it has taken great steps to blur [[GirlShowGhetto the line between "girl shows" and "general audience shows"]]. The influence of anime on American shows is largely the reason for the rise of shows with continuous, overarching story lines such as the aforementioned ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'', which may be a TropeCodifier in this regard. Further examples of shows of this type include ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars'' (the non-canon Tartakovsky 2D cartoon), ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' (the canonical Lucas CGI installment), ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'', ''WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan'', ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'', ''WesternAnimation/SymBionicTitan'', ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011'', and ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'', a number of them becoming smash successes in their own right. One could very well say that, generally speaking, action cartoons produced in America have actually reached a higher medium standard than what was the case during the Renaissance Age (back then, while mature action cartoons did exist, the vast majority were quite juvenile and rarely had very complex storylines). A looser continuity is still the norm when it comes to comedy shows however, such as ''WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants'', which rose to the position of Nickelodeon's CashCowFranchise, and Disney's ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb''. This era also saw "adult-aimed" cartoons, which started their comeback with ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' in the 80s, reaching mainstream status with the ongoing success of shows like ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'', ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', as well as ''The Simpsons'' itself, along with many others.
