Animation is included in the Wikipedia CD Selection, see Animation at Schools Wikipedia. Please maintain high quality standards; if you are an established editor your last version in the article history may be used so please don't leave the article with unresolved issues, and make an extra effort to include free images, because non-free images cannot be used on the DVDs.
There have been a lot of people who say that animation is a medium, but Wikipedia here puts in as a genre of film, but animation is not a genre; Hollywood just treats it like that. That's why I've been taking out of film and TV genres categories or pages because it's NOT a genre. There are plenty of people I know who hate seeing animation being called a genre (Brad Bird is a good example). Animation Historian Jerry Beck said "It's an art form. But Hollywood treats it as a genre". Also, TV Tropes lists animation as a medium. You know what's a genre? Fantasy and comedy. Those ARE genres that animation, film and comics can do very well. Why? Because they're mediums; art forms, if you will. So please, can we take animation out of film genres? --Joseph1357 (talk) 20:02, 25 September 2013 (UTC)Joseph1357, September 25, 2013, 3:02 PM CT
