 What is cartoon 什么是动漫卡通
     The word cartoon has various meanings, based on several very different forms of visual art and illustration. The artists who draw cartoons are known as cartoonists.
     A cartoon (from the Italian "cartone" and Dutch word "karton", meaning strong, heavy paper or pasteboard) is a full-size drawing made on sturdy paper as a study or modello for a painting, stained glass or tapestry. Cartoons were typically used in the production of frescoes, to accurately link the component parts of the composition when painted on damp plaster over a series of days (giornate).
     Such cartoons often have pinpricks along the outlines of the design; a bag of soot was then patted or "pounced" over the cartoon, held against the wall to leave black dots on the plaster ("pouncing"). Cartoons by painters, such as the Raphael Cartoons in London and examples by Leonardo da Vinci, are highly prized in their own right. Tapestry cartoons, usually colored, were followed by eye by the weavers on the loom.
     In modern print media, a cartoon is a piece of art, usually humorous in intent. This usage dates from 1843 when Punch magazine applied the term to satirical drawings in its pages, particularly sketches by John Leech. The first of these parodied the preparatory cartoons for grand historical frescoes in the then-new Palace of Westminster. The original title for these drawings was Mr. Punch's face is the letter Q and the new title "cartoon" was intended to be ironic, a reference to the self-aggrandizing posturing of Westminster politicians.
     Comic strips, also known as "cartoon strips" in the United Kingdom, are found daily in newspapers worldwide, and are usually a short series of cartoon illustrations in sequence. In the United States they are not as commonly called "cartoons" themselves, but rather "comics"or "funnies". Nonetheless, the creators of comic strips-as well as comic books and graphic novels-are usually referred to as "cartoonists". Although humor is the most prevalent subject matter, adventure and drama are also represented in this medium. Noteworthy cartoonists of humor strips include Scott Adams, Steve Bell, Charles Schulz, E. C. Segar, Mort Walker and Bill Watterson.
     Because of the stylistic similarities between comic strips and early animated movies, "cartoon" came to refer to animation, and the word"cartoon" is currently used to refer to both animated cartoons and gag cartoons. While "animation" designates any style of illustrated images seen in rapid succession to give the impression of movement, the word"cartoon" is most often used in reference to TV programs and short films for children featuring anthropomorphized animals, superheroes, the adventures of child protagonists and related genres.
     At the end of the 1980s, the word "cartoon" was shortened, and the word "toon" came into usage with the live action/animated feature Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), followed two years later by the TV series Tiny Toon Adventures (1990).
     "动漫"(comic and animation)是动画和漫画的合称与缩写(abbreviation)。随着现代传媒技术(media technology)的发展,动画(animation或anime)和漫画(comics,manga;特别是故事性漫画)之间联系日趋紧密,两者常被合而为"动漫"。

     Meanwhile, the Cartoon and Animation Expo also received 430, 000 visitors during the7-day holiday.

     Carlos: Mr. Wolf? The animation TV show?
     Rebecca: Exactly! How can she trust a wolf? Isn't a real man better than a cartoon wolf?
     瑞贝卡:就是的啊。 你怎么可以相信一只狼呢?一个真人比不上一只狼?

     Carlos: I know I am way out of line sometimes. But I love you more than that stupid wolf does.
     Rebecca: He is not stupid. He is smart.
     Carlos: See? Now you are one of them, babe. Don't you want a divorce as well?
     Rebecca: Certainly not, I just think that the cartoons now reflect people's desire for their real life to a large extent.
     Carlos: Okay, I'll change my bad habit and become a realistic Mr. Wolf.
     Rebecca: That will be the best.
