Anything animated. Be it american, french, british, irish, chinese, or japenese. Also, japenese cartoons don't have to be called anime, since the japenese call all animation anime. Cartoons can be any genre, but they are most often comedies.
Spongebob, Pokémon: The Series, Teen Titans, and Chowder are prime examples of cartoons.
