The Critic isn't particularly limited animation, is it? sjorford →•← 15:52, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Ehhh, "particularly"? I think basically all TV animated series are limited, since it would be too expensive, time-consuming and difficult to make something like 10 different 20-30 minutes episodes for a season with full animation (24 frames a second or something). A Disney animated feature was generally about 1-1 1/2 hours and took several years to produce, the company only managed to release one movie a year because they had three different studios working full-time. (Although now, even Disney seems to have gone over to computer animation.) I think it's strange that you use the word "particularly", but compare for instance "Fantasia"/"Dumbo" or "Aladdin" with "The Critic", and it should be obvious what I mean. 85.226.122.222 17:24, 4 December 2005 (UTC)

The Adventures of Prince Achmed[edit]

The article states: "The UPA studio made the first serious effort to abandon the ultra-realistic approach perfected by Disney." I believe this to be untrue, as "The Adventures of Prince Achmed" precedes Disney's "Snow White" by a decade.

I guess it's an over-simplification. Also, Fleischer's 1930's Betty Boop cartoons were deliberately surrealist. 惑乱 Wakuran (talk) 11:36, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Limited animation a style or technique?[edit]

This article seems to consider "limited animation" primarily a style, although I have largely considered it as a technique evolved to cut back on animation in the ares where it's the least notable. Other opinions? 惑乱 Wakuran (talk) 11:39, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

Ignorance Towards the Subject[edit]

limited animation has nothing to with how "realistic" an animated film is. we need a genuine cartoonist or animation historian to work on this article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.232.236.254 (talk) 06:18, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

Examples cited[edit]

I am rather confused at the collection of examples cited. Though "south park" does have very crude animation, it is animated in Maya Studios, and thus does not follow "limited" animation techniques. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.191.132.145 (talk) 16:46, 3 November 2009 (UTC)
