We're currently living in a second dark age of cartoons, maybe even worse than the 1970s and especially with the movies that have come out this year (Smurfs, Spark, The Emoji Movie, Rock Dog, Boss Baby and the upcoming films such as The Nut Job 2 and The Star) yes I can say that we are living in a second dark age of western animation in whch none of the better shows on now (Steven Universe, Star vs The Forces of Evil) can save us from this horrible dreck we're living in (Teen Titans Go, The Powerpuff Girls (2016), Bunsen Is Beast, Ben 10 (2016), Cloudy, Marvel's Spiderman, Wacky Races 2017 and more)

Computer animation was a mistake.

Call me a faggot for saying this, but I don't think any year so far will compare to the 80's in terms of low quality animation. Say what you will of the cartoons made as of late, but at least studios in present day are trying make something of their writing and animation.
Numerous cartoons in the 80s not only had very amateurish writing and paper thin characters, but the animation was eyesore in every perspective imaginable. Also, compared to 2017, at least studios nowadays are attempting to make original properties of their own. While people in the 80s were too afraid of taking any risks, that a huge chunk of them were based off already existing properties.
TL;DR No, 2017 isn't the worst year for animation. Most of the 80s were.

Also, think about this when thinking about 2017 and the 80s. Name 7 good animated series from 2017, and then name 7 good animated from anywhere in the 80s.

I could probably think of a few years that were worse, but this year was pretty bad too. I think 2017 could be summed up with one word: forgettable. I just looked at the list and I realized I had forgotten that half of these movies even existed. That being said, LEGO Batman probably wins movie of the year IMO.

Batman and Harley Quinn
The Boss Baby
Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie
Cars 3
Coco
Despicable Me 3
The Emoji Movie
Ferdinand
Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie
The Jetsons & WWE: Robo-WrestleMania!
Justice League Dark
The LEGO Batman Movie
The LEGO Ninjago Movie
Loving Vincent
My Little Pony: The Movie
The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature
Smurfs: The Lost Village
The Star
Surf’s Up 2: WaveMania
Teen Titans: The Judas Contract
Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

To be fair, the MLP movie was at least 2D… so thats… something? Maybe? Even though it looks like Winx.

Lucas Green

You forgot Sing and Trolls… I think.
And Trolls is one of the worse on the list.

Holy shit Dreamworks is dead. Makes me sad, I liked them better than Pixar for some time, but after Zootopia and Moana vs Boss Baby and Trolls I must say… holy shit guys. You're dead.

Not that user, but I know the feel. You don't want to be that dadrocker faggot–a killjoy who refuses to listen to anything made after 1999. Unfortunately for user, almost all good animation nowadays is just amateur shorts.
That being I can't really name a decade when 2D western animation really stood out other than the 30's and 2D disney,

Grayson Clark

You don't want to be that dadrocker faggot–a killjoy who refuses to listen to anything made after 1999.
He's a faggot for thinking his time had "good" music (and ignoring even some good (by his standards) stuff that can sometimes come up post-1999), but he's not wrong in that overall, music before 1999 was better (even if it was still shit; Queens and Beatles included; compare all that to the Classics (even the later ones like Gustav Holst) and you notice a decline; if you can't you're blind; blinded by plain ignorance and/or cheap thrills). And there is nothing wrong with refusing to eat shit even at the expense of being a "killjoy". There is nothing wrong with acknowledging truth; there has been a definite decline in art.

It's kind of sad how Shrek changed Dreamworks for the worse. Because of Shrek and Shrek 2 they learned from those films that pop culture references were all you need despite what made Shrek work was that it was a satire of Disney films. The second one had too much pop culture references but was still fun. Hopefully, with stuff like HWTYD and Kung Fu Panda they're moving away from that.

This. The animation was shit on Rocky & Bullwinkle but it had decent writing and humour, and Hanna-Barbera cartoons were simple because they had no budget not because >don't need to learn anatomy, it's my artstyle to draw like a 7-y/o., your criticism is problematic. 80s toy commercial shows occasionally managed to slip in something fanservicey, not-unfunny or at least not-cringe-inducing for parents or for the lulz.

It’s basically a soft reboot without all the “real world” crap, more tolerable mostly by being more bland and forgettable

Despicable Me 1 was fine until there was that unicorn book with the hole in it. And all I was thinking of for the rest of the movie was him sticking his dick through that hole and letting the girls play with the "unicorn".

We're currently living in a second dark age of cartoons, maybe even worse than the 1970s and especially with the movies that have come out this year

Dark age!? A worser describing I give this generation of animation with so many riggid animated show I saw on TV, cinema and online in 3D and 2D that trigger a lot of those lazy animators is: Rise Of Digital Puppetry

I'm not sure if it's the worst, but it was really bad overall. Nice to know the art schools are still pushing out talentless hacks. Does anyone have the infographs on how bad modern art schools are? And that most employed artists don't even have degrees? I was trying to find them the other day with no luck.

What does Trump have to do with this? No one even brought up politicians until you mentioned him.

Dreamworks baffles me. They've shown they can put out amazing movies, but simultaneously they've also put out god awful movies. It makes me wonder if they really had talent at the company, or if they just got lucky a few times and had no clue how to continue those successes.

Ironically he's barely remembered because most of the mainstream news sites never covered him. How was he even that bad at using a gun anyway? I only shot guns a few times on a range when I was roughly half his age and yet I was still more accurate than him.

this was the closest thing to a good animated movie I've seen for a while, and that was early 2016 (and even that was a delayed release from 2015)

they're objectively awful
in some cases, they started with moderate skill and got far worse by the time they graduate
their work has dragged down the animation industry into one of its lowest points
every single person who worked the same industry, on the same channels, in the same studios as these hipster faggots, all vociferously advocate against going to college for art or even hiring art school students
CN didn't listen.
