Why do modern cartoon reboots always look like this?

What's the deal? If it's not CalArts blobs, it's this! Sure, it looks good compared to a lot of other modern cartoons, but it's still very clearly cheaper than the kind of stuff we used to see. We went from cartoons that looked like they could be shown in a theater, to cartoons that look like they belong on Newgrounds.

Yes, I'm aware I opened up a can of worms by using the Trump scene, but I swear I only picked it because it was the worst-looking shot in the trailer.
