Subject: Did crudely-drawn/live animation symbolize the early '90s?

Written By: Marty McFly on 07/18/07 at 9:58 pm

Doesn't it seem like 1989-1991 was popular for fun and roughly-drawn stuff like Who Framed Roger Rabbit or the first couple seasons of Simpsons (where Homer sounded like Walter Mathau and the focus was more on Bart's prankster side)? Also, videos for songs like "Opposites Attract" or Rod Stewart's "The Motown Song" melded real life action with cartoon characters. I think its appeal had alot to do with animation catching on in a mainstream sense and not just being viewed as a "kid" thing.
