Should Winnie the Pooh be defined as "anime"??

As far as I know the word amime was, initially, simply the abbreviation of "animation" given by Japonais yet subsequently it became utterly the proper noun for animations from Japon, hence the word "anime" should be used on Japon works exclusively...... ??correct me if I mistake.
Yet there are always people who categorise works such as, most commonly, Winnie the Pooh as "anime"-- is that proper?

Winnie the Pooh doesn't suit in the anime category, IMo...
but Powerpuff Girls is another thing XD rofl...
well, it's true that the term 'Anime' refers to Japanese cartoon animation, just like what you defined..

I guess considering it means animation, Pooh and gang would be an 'anime' but it really isn't when u look at the standard/common referance to meaning.

*grabs head in hand*No, please no... *cringe*

Joke aside, although it is true that the term "anime" is an abbreviation of the word "animation", it is commonly used in reference to animation work from Japan, although there are some US work which are also classified within it. However, these tend to be work done either by modifying an existing Japanese animation (scribe and such), or just due to artwork similarity. Personally, to me, the "feel" I get from watching a cartoon and an anime is quite different, due to culture and preference, US cartoon's storyline and Japan anime's are also quite different in nature. I can't quite explain it really. but I just feel that its different really.

Of course not. In my opinion, anime is animation that comes from Japan and Winnie the Pooh isn't Japanese as far as I know....so why the heck would it have to be considered as anime ?

There's no character development whatsoever in Winnie the Pooh and there's no real story-line either. Those two aspects are the reason japanese animation took the world by storm, so Winnie the Pooh is not an anime. It's a cartoon aimed at a youger audience.

Technicaly, any animation is anime. Even though I don't like admiting it myself, this is how the japanese describe it.

As a fan though, it is definitely not as good as the "anime" we refer to.

So a Japonais might call it anime? It sounds reasonable that to them "anime" is still simply the abbreviation of the word "animation" instead of a proper noun for works from japon....... Or do they have another word for regular "cartoon"??

The moment I saw this thread, I knew everyone would deny winnie's right 2 b called anime, & I agree: anime, being an abbreviation of animation, created by the Japanese, spelled in 3 letters: a-ni-me; is a name reserved for japanese-styled animations, done w/ superb & unbelievable skill to please the viewer, whether by the great action, suspense, humor(which can't be duplicated in ANY other language), & sexiness(in both the literal sense & ... well, the other sense). winnie the poo is just that: poo(compared to anime that is).

When using the term "anime" in an english speaking country, most people will assume you're talking about animation made in Japan. But Japanese people do refer to American cartoons as anime too.

i think it's really just a personal preference... most art can't truly be labelled anyway.

winnie the poop, ooops i mean pooh (hehe) is absolutely NOT an anime. Anime is animation with origins in Japan (you could call it Japanimation). Some may argue that some animes are now drawn outside of Japan (i hear some are drawn in Korea) but the concept and story (the manga) is strictly from Japan. I don't like how american animation try to emulate the anime feel and put an anime tag on it, the feel, artwork, detail, culture and everything is completely off. Let Japan do the animes.
