That normally is tragic road that ends up being taken, but I don't think that's the case with the animated drama genre that we love so much. Actually I think it's the opposite.
The stuff the suits manufacture -kid friendly shows, imported anime, action-sports cartoons- is a bucket full of generic money as far as they are concerned. Animated dramas have actual thought and hard work put into them. So they could never fit in the life-less catagory above.
And if our animated dramas did go mainstream, those money driven suits, -who don't understand this genre, obviously- will try to put them in their money making loop along with Action Man and Pokemon, and they will fail. Thus sifting out the weasels, since they'll go broke!
Thank you for reading my own personal versian of animated heaven.
