      >canada doesnt have an industry so america just outsources their properties to them
      >french stuff is not centralized enough to hold a world wild industry or a following and they also do outsource work from both american and even more so with japan has they straight up high key animators of very popular properties

      you all have 1 thing in common. you do not appreciate the work people make.
      >this is garbage i can tell because its ugly and buzzword and buzzword
      you are so focused on generalizing and writing things off you wont even give it a chance
      >this is top notch masterwork
      okay what other aspects did you enjoy about this other than 5 second fight scene? did you like the voice acting? the characters? the music? the sound design? how about the direction?
      i like everything once and awhile in meaningful chunks and rarely disregard things because people said x about y thing however what i really look for in a show or movie is passion and people actually enjoying what they are making.
      i highly suggest you all start looking at smaller stuff instead of being on your knees waiting for some massive company who only does things to make money, to spit out some multi season cartoon or several movie if you want something individually made to you

      what have they made

      barely an industry there but most of what they make is outsource work from other countries primarily japan.
      I do want to see the koji project take off but thats just what i know, i would like to know what that country makes for itself just like for china but its not exactly something you can look up since no one is interested to report on it in other countries.

    Lack of funding mostly. Exceptions are Britain which prefers comics to cartoons, and Germany which is too autistic to produce anything good.

              Yeah that's not stop motion.
              Else I'd include all of the puppetry shows too that youtube probably doesn't have half of the intros for because of how old they all are.

              I'm surprised that puppetry didn't win since surely that would be cheaper than CG.

          Most of his works were too Argentine-centric and only made it to Uruguay and Spain as far as I know.

              I suppose dubbing and distributing argentine cartoons didn't look profitable enough.
              His works weren't bad or excellent, the guy was painfully average.
              Direct to video/TV tier.

    Americans invented animation. Most innovations have come out of american studios and people around the world immigrate to the US to learn/work on animation. Japs use animation in place of live action because it was cheaper than setting up film sets with old fashioned cameras back in the day. This means they routinely work on genres that other countries seldom if ever cover. A ton of artsy types in the US looking to dodge the draft fled to Canada during Vietnam. Since the US doesn't place as much importance in animation as it does in live action, Canada has an easier time making competing animated shows that Americans are happy to consume. France has a large pool of artists with a portion of them naturally gravitating towards animation. It's reputation for historical masterworks also attract artists from around the world.

          It started in France in the late 1800s but to pretend that America hasn’t always been huge in Animation is a faggy move, as they probably did the most to push it out of its infancy. You can’t argue that Americans are unimportant to the history of animation when they released the first animated feature film.

      More importantly France shovels millions of euros of annual subsidies towards the animation sector via the CNC because they realise the value of soft power diplomacy they can leverage from being industry leaders just behind the US/Canada and Japan/Korea. French animation is barely barely profitable, it's entirely kept afloat by the state as a prestige project (not that that's a bad thing).
