In another thread, I asked if I could leave a plot point ambiguous, because there were other works that didn't explain their logic. Examples I used included Toy Story (why do the toys come to life?), Calvin and Hobbes (is Hobbes real, or just in Calvin's imagination?), and Frozen (where did Elsa's powers come from?). At least two people replied with "Those are cartoons" or something along those lines, and I have something to say to that: WHAT. THE. FUCK. So, let me get something straight here: these works are allowed to leave things ambiguous just because they're of a different medium? Live-action works have to explain things, but animated ones don't? I don't get that logic. It's stupid and makes no sense. Can someone please explain to me why cartoons can leave things ambiguous, but live-action works and novels can't?
