Sorry I missed your response and didn't reply. 4 months late, but whatever
Seriously? What was it called?
>a huge improvement over the kind of novels marketed at teens in the eighties
True, but somewhat debateable. The quality rose with Star Wars EU and other stuff, but generally 80s paperbacks were more interesting than stuff from the 2010s.
>ost of the cartoons I remember were canadian, from the same company that made Totally Spies
Ah, that might be it. I mean Canada had some banger shows, but a lot of it was cheap trash because budget constraints. I still remember Kid vs Kat and other stuff like Totally Spies (pic related). Good times.
>Star and the Forces of Evil, Adventure Time
I'm going to be honest, those are both terrible shows, and while the latter is defended by fans to th death, Star & Marco have been lambasted for years at this point, as has LH and other cringe. The 000s had A LOT of good stuff, but because it wasn't exported well, you probably didn't see it, stuff like Ben 10, ATLA, Generator Rex, Kim Possible Danny Phantom, Rocko's Life, Recess and more. In the past 5 years I can't name a single childrens show that I would be comfortable letting kids see or bother with. It's much easier to turn on old TMNT and other shows and let them watch that instead.
>Americans got into anime very late and with bottom of the barrel tier shows.
That's true, but to be fair that was the most popular product world wide, along with a lot of other things
That was popular in the USA, but it's an adult anime TBH
