Cartooncore is an aesthetic centered completely around western animation (specifically in America or Canada), as opposed to Animecore, which has more of a focus on Japanese animation.
Given the long, rich history of animation, there is a lot for Cartooncore enthusiasts to draw inspiration from:
- Black & White
- Early Technicolor
Cartooncore can either focus on a specific cartoon from the long history of animation or it can simply draw from the aesthetics of the style and create something completely new and unique to introduce into the world, due to the fact that there is a lot more variety to western animation compared to the relative uniformity of anime, there is room for multiple subgenres of Cartooncore to pop up.
