Hannah Barbera is the DEFINITION of samey uninspired soulless garbage. Big reason Western Animation is shit for kids.
But I do understand this Pixar Complaint if you will. Honestly I hate CGI animation, too much of it looks the same and it already peaked. What else is there to improve in cartoony CGI animation? Let's see:
- Hair is mastered. Nothing special there anymore.
- Water? Mastered.
- Lighting? Fully mastered.
I honestly can't think of anything else besides environments and Pixar's Good Dinosuar did realistic environments and cartoony designs mixed together and it looked visually ugly to see such a thing so it's not an area that people are excited to see.
And I fear the future of 2D animation is going to be that stupid Paperman Engine by Disney meaning 3D models pretending to be 2D. And that shit is just no legitimate.
