there's not a difference, cartoons and anime are the same thing, animation, in japan it's called animation, the americans/other shortened it to anime. but most cases it's japanime, the location being the first few letters. but since we're probably dealing with outsiders, it's best to explain it like how J explained it.

YAY : D i did something right...

but going into more detail you could say the style is different, japanime style usually sports small faces and big eyes, also there is no gore content in cartoons.

i think there is a difference. you don't see people cosplaying for cartoons like ed,edd, and eddy. but you do from naruto. The difference is the details in drawing, the content, and the plots. also, cartoons don't have manga. some barley have ugh, "comics". while anime has mangas~ ^^ heres one or 2 cartoons people usually get confused as anime. (sorry if i spelled them wrong)
code leyoko
(in my opinun i don't think tht kindom hearts is an anime or a good video game. number one, it doesn't have a manga it only has comics, (real manga is read right to left so u know when its a real manga or just a comic) plus it has disney CARTOONS in it. also i played the game and i wasn't impressed. :/ acually im not sure if kindom hearts is a cartoon either.....perhaps a mix? but the "anime" characters in kindom hearts r nicely draw and a lil detailed...hmm....(thinking)
and some other stuff 2 tht kinda just left my mind but yeah. ^^;;;

But the art style of the two is quite differentand in my opinion i think that anime is better xD

THEY ARE THE SAME --- really do they have another name for Spanish cartoons? French? German? Italian? Brazilian? I watch all kinds of shows not just from Japan but from other countries too. I generally just look at anime the most because most of them are very good and enjoyable

Anime is from Japan and it is of a much wider variety than cartoons. There're anime for kids and anime for young adults, older adults (hentai), etc. Or so I believe ^^;;;

All anime are technically cartoons. The difference is (besides their origin country), some anime are willing to tackle more mature themes than cartoons (and with more intelligence and complexity), while cartoons remain kids' stuff. And I'm not talking about just hentai. And anime at its best still comes out on top of cartoons. Think Lain VS Batman: The Animated Series. As much as I liked the latter...it can't compare to the bottomless pit that is Lain's depth.

Anime / Manga is a style type which mainly started in japan. Cartoons mostly come from USA or America and sometimes from england but they differ completely and cartoon story lines are generally more for kids and younger teens where as manga is for different age groups.

Anime's usually have a plot, great art and have a lot of genre's ( EX :code geass = comedy + drama + action + mecha ..) not to mention age recommendations ( i think that's how their called) while most cartoons are episodic , fast art , usually just focus on comedy ( if not always) , can be watched at all ages XD . And anime's are pure Japanese awesomeness <333.
