An animated series or cartoon series is a television series produced by means of animation. Most, particularly those produced in the United States, are aimed at an audience of children; a few are intended primarily for older viewers, but many others include humor on multiple levels to appeal to both children and adults.

Animated series produced in Japan are usually known as anime.

A note on usage: The duration of an individual episode varies from series to series. While some series may be produced as complete half hour programs, many cartoons are produced as short subjects of 15 minutes or less. These cartoons are grouped and mixed together according to network programming demands. Thus a particular animated series may appear in a number of formats, often anonymously, e.g. The Cartoon Hour.
