Exaggeration and Caricature
In my mind, this is what animation is all about. If you dont push the boundaries and make fun of stuff, youre not using the full potential of the medium. Dont get me wrong, I like all forms of animation, well... except anything rotoscoped... oh yeah, and anime (Im sorry). Im sorry, yes, I said it! I have a problem with anime. Its too psychologically painful for me to watch.
