And Now...

The Contemporary Animated Movie Plot Generator!

Roll 2d6, consult the chart below.

2     Remake of a well-known classic (e.g., Casablanca, Ivanhoe, or High
      Noon), with wacky contemporary versions of the original characters (e.g., Will
      Smith playing a hip, rapper "Sam" from Casablanca).

3     Remake of a well-known classic (e.g., Casablanca, Ivanhoe, or High
      Noon), with the serial numbers shaved off. Also with wacky contemporary versions
      of the original characters (see above). Possibly set in space or at the zoo.

4     The world is going to be destroyed, so the heroes must get to a safe world. However,
      this is just the basic premise. Roll again to determine the actual plot.

5     An unwanted and pointless sequel to a previous generation's animated classic. Roll
      again to determine the plot.

6     A well-known celebrity or various members of the cast of a popular TV show in a
      vehicle that highlights their quirky personality. Roll again to determine the plot.
      Alternatively, an animated TV series brought to the big screen.

7     Nebbish learns to rely on his unique abilities and the help of his friends to save
      the day and/or rescue a kidnapped loved one.

8     Slick-but-lonely operator finds a real family with the collection of oddballs he
      was going to rip off.

9     Slick-but-lonely operator finds a real family with the collection of oddballs he
      wants nothing to do with.

10    There is something bad happening, but the adults don't believe it so a plucky kid
      must save the day. This combines particularly well with #7.

11    Preoccupied parent realizes they've been missing out by neglecting their family.

12    A combination of two or more plots. Roll twice to determine which two. Keep rolling
      and combining until you stop getting "roll again" results.

Now you can make your own! Go for it!

Another outcome you can use:

"A PG-13/R/NC-17-rated PARODY of a beloved comic strip/children's book/TV show for kids that is so old that everybody knows it and if anybody is left around to sue the production, they won't. Either the plot is taken straight from the source material (e.g. "A Charlie Brown Christmas" -> the pilot episode of "South Park") or the script is so loaded with dirty jokes, curse words and references to sex, drugs, tobacco, alcohol, etc. that an actual plot only gets in the way. Two versions are made: a relatively tame version (but still unsuitable for a young audience) for the multiplexes and an all-out rauncharama for the DVD release."

Anime's a little too diverse for that. You'd have to break it down by genre.

No, but I did end up seeing both Cars and Ice Age: The Meltdown over the holidays.
