Hate to burst your bubble, but foriegn animation has been going on for a LONG time. I remember a few years ago seeing the credits to a Scooby Doo cartoon, made in 1970, and noticing that the animation was done by Wang.

done in local enviroments? Do you think we'll ever come back to those days, or is the cheap foreign work to good of a deal?
There has been a tiny bit of American TV animation... Startoons, if I remember correctly, is based in the U.S., and they did some episodes of Animaniacs and Taz-Mania (even did the title sequence for that one). But, on the whole, it's cheaper for the studios to go foreign.
You read it... you can't un-read it!
