An animated cartoon is a short, hand-drawn (or made with computers to look similar to something hand-drawn) film for the cinema, television or computer screen, featuring some kind of story or plot. This is distinct from the terms "animation" and "animated film," as not all follow this definition. Use to either identify the media on a [story-identification] question or disambiguate works where the tag covers the cartoon and its form in other media.
