It all depends on whether we're talking about AMERICAN animation or JAPANESE animation. There's hit and misses on both sides of the pacific... but which one has a better success rate? THAT... is the question that SHOULD be asked.

@Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamoto: I agree whole heartedly.  
BUT in either case, I would still go with Anime.

Quality American cartoons are sorta rare. This is mainly due to the fact that the creators feel as though they can just slap anything together and call it a show because it is primarily marketed towards kids. (Not that we haven't made good shows, just that the success rate is much >>> in Japan.)

In my opinion, Anime is more enjoyable to watch nowadays compared to cartoons that are on. Every now and then, there comes along a cartoon that is pretty good and warrants my respect, but in the end, I would still watch Anime over Cartoons every time.

I think the person who started this whole damned thing should have phrased the question better- since "anime" and "cartoons" are one and the same, the question being posed SHOULD be- "American cartoons or Japanese cartoons", since the word 'anime' in and of itself is merely a shortened version of the word 'animēshon', which is the Romanization of the English-language word 'animation'. All I say now is this- think about what the user who started the topic is talking about before going upon a warpath. 
 
To reiterate my position on this, just read my earlier post above.

I agree with   Makoto_Mizuhara_Sakamoto, and, if I had to decide between both I´d say anime, but still its a very hard question, since I have enjoyed many anime and american cartoons, the thing is that nowdays cartoons are not as good as they used to be, while anime keeps releasing really good stuff the whole time.

As much as I'd like to agree with you, flip side applies as well. There are anime that're coming out that just aren't up to par with what they could've been (Haruhi Suzumiya season 2 being an example), whilst there are some great cartoons here that have been released in the past decade or so (one of my personal favs being Megas XLR, poking fun at video game culture, Jersey folk, mecha, aliens, and sci-fi in general).

Good cartoons: Danny Phantom, Powerpuff Girls, Xiaolin Showdown (I think it's cartoon), Justice League and Unlimited, Spider-man (theme song goes like this "radioactive spider blood"), Samurai Jack, Johnny Bravo, and many others. I will admit I like Spongebob when I was in middle school.

Although I grew up with watching cartoons on TV, I just slowly drift away from cartoons and end up watching anime 95% of the time. [I sacrificed cable for the internet. It's a family decision.]
I going with both because those cartoons are so nostalgic.
