    Is it a version made by the Japanese peoples? If so, than I suppose it would be an anime....

    If its the American version of the cartoon dubbed in Japanese, it is not anime. It's simply an American cartoon in Japanese.

    Anime = animation.
    Cartoons = animation.
    Anime = cartoon.
    Therefore, cartoon = anime.

    But:
    "the term is used in Japan to refer to animation in general, in English usage the term most popularly refers to material originating from Japan, a subset of animation" [wikipedia]

    Which would cause some people to call it JUST a cartoon, not anime.


    EDIT: So, it's anime, people just don't see as such.

    I think it's an anime. It does appear on channel 7 on Saturday mornings, but I can't exactly say much, because I never watch it and I don't know much about it.

    Oh, Hi-deeki, imagine... your kind not eating raw fish! ^_^

    I thought that's an american cartoon, made by americans, with japanese items, so i can't get it as a japanese cartoon called anime.

    Do we have to re-point out the definition of anime?

    Anime-literal: Japanese for Animation

    Anime-Society: Animated stuff made and from Japan.

    if the Japanese made TMNT, then it's anime
    if other people (besides Japanese) made them, then it's not anime

    that's what I think anyways...

    That is true. Americans made some things that center around some Japanese stuff, but it can't be considered anime unless it's made by the Japanese. But I still enjoy American titles like the Lionking.

    While it is true that the Japanese use the word "anime" to refer to anything animated, that is not what we non-Japanese use the word for. We use the word to refer to animated shows from Japan. This is the only definition that applies to us.

    If we use the Japanese definition of the word anime, that means that, here in America, Spongebob Squarepants is an anime, Code Lyoko is an anime (by the way, its French, not Japanese), South Park is an anime and Family Guy is an anime. In Japan, yes, these shows would be called anime, as the yuse the word to refer to animation in general, but we Westerners do not use the word this way. And most likely if you were to talk about any of these shows in any of the of the anime threads on this forum, claiming that they were anime, the resulting responses may not be so good .

    Like I said before, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is not an anime IF we are talking about the American version being in Japan (there is a Japanese version of the show, but this came out a long time ago). Despite the fact that the Japanese refer to the show as an anime, we would not call it an anime because of our Western definition of the word.
    This is my war face.

    If something is originally from the U.S, it's not an anime.

    Little Mermaid, Lion King, Tom and Jerry, all american, but... They are also dubbed in japanese, play in japan, and there are japanese remakes.

    The only thing that is anime about that, are the remakes.

    If you are using the word anime to describe all animation why use the word at all? Anime is a term for JAPANESE cartoons, It's to catagorize where it comes from. TMNT is still just a cartoon, no matter how much you wish it wasn't.

    Depends whom you talk to, Otaku's will usually bite your head off for saying something like is TMNT or Avatar etc an anime. More laid back fans take it for what it is and just say yeah it's an anime.

    Erm... from my point of view? Let's compare any other Anime with TMNT.
    *comparing*
    Honestly, I see nothing in common. TMNT is a very cool cartoon, but it's a regular cartoon. Well, as far as regular can a cartoon be =)
    *off topic*
    Bugs Bunny, Tom & Jerry, Beetlejuice... *sigh* I miss 'em

    Hot gift from Midnight Rider Teh Great! Thank you :3

    Thank you for the awesome sig, Serated!

    I think I forgot to mention, the new cartoon more based on the comics, not the old cartoon that first came out so they could sell the toys.

    If it's a dub, then...no. We call that a dub.
    If you were to see the Funimation dub of Dragonball on television, you wouldn't try to say it's an American cartoon, would you?
    On the other hand, if it was actually made in Japan (since I'm not entirely certain here) then, yes, you could call it anime.



    As for "anime" just meaning "animation"...ok? I think we know by now what the word translates to (since it's brought up in EVERY thread like this), but...would someone say "anime" to mean "western cartoon?" I would think that specifically using the word "anime" implies that they mean Japanese animation (unless you're actually in Japan, but most of us here, as far as I can tell, aren't) in particular. Otherwise, they'd just say cartoon, right?

    [EDIT] Looking back (as I should have done from the start) I see that wolfgirl90 said pretty much waht I said later. Sorry for the redundancies.
