Is it just me or is the animation just getting worse?

god damn this really pisses me off. You're older now so you won't "understand" the kid ****. For kids, they may not notice how much of a piece of crap the show is but they still watch it. It's like that one episode on Southpark where the adults listen to the music the kids listen to and they think it's crap, while the kids listen to the adults music and think that ****.

I liked young justice, it's a damn shame that we can't have the regular justice league or teen titans back, why can't they just start airing reruns from S1E1 all the way in order?

Each and every reply is correct. I'm currently studying Animation, and you would not believe the amount of money that goes into cheaply written, cheaply animated, and cheaply produced cartoons. We've learned methods on animating from 2D to 3D (as well as drawn animation which I prefer). Although some programs cost thousands of dollars for licenses, you can easily find one that is inexpensive and make a show that has better animation than the ones on the kids network.

Because they don't have to meet a quota of a weekly episode for an entire season.
Sure, they almost certainly get a headstart/already have the episodes made, but they have to make a lot of episodes, each with different animations and backgrounds of the same characters and settings.

Ive actually been thinking the same thing until someone told me to pay attention to transitions and backgrounds. Most cartoons today are very detailed and have a lot more fluid animation then older generations. The stupid style is most likely to simplify the characters in order to make the more fluid animations easier. In short the animating is getting a lot better but the art style takes a hit in order to save time.

I'm no professional in animation, but there's been a huge jump in animation technique as a result of time and money.

The old animations, ranging from scooby-doo, to teen titans, to especially just about any japanese anime, consists of hand drawn frames and painted backgrounds. When you see objects with solid colors and lines, that would be hand drawn. Anything with detailed color and texturing is usually painted. The work that goes into making such animations, drawing and coloring each and every frame, let alone painting the backgrounds, costs A LOT of money and takes much time; the cost of a single anime episode easily tops $100,000. That means ten episodes, perhaps a season, costs over a million.

Nowadays, animations are more "Flash" animations, where vectors (shapes graphed and drawn by the computer, based on user interaction) are created and manipulated. Since. Vectors are computed by the computer, making a vector go from shape A to shape B is simple, as the computer created this movement; although this limits the amount of detail; vector animations usually don't have as much turning around in a 3D perspective, and consist of animations that don't look very detailed or realistic, despite how smooth and fluid they can be. At the very least, they don't redraw each frame; they manipulate an already existing image/vector (rotate, move, scale, etc), to create an animation. Sometimes, the level of detail is increased by using an actual texture to "color" the objects that create the animation. An example of vector animations would be My Little Pony.

Hand drawn animations are made similarly to this method: Making Naruto the Movie 1 (Inside the Animation Studio)

Since I can only post one video per post:

Here's a good example of the vector based animation (typically flash animations): e.d.Films Tutorial: From Paper To After Effects Overview

If I'm wrong, feel free to tell me. I'd like to learn even more, too.
