MyToons is open to everyone interested in animation. Users upload short animated films that they’ve created, or have copyright permission to use. Videos are organized by tag, user, most watched, most highly rated, etc. You can easily embed them in other sites in three different sizes.
In addition to videos, the site has sections focused on artwork, games and the community. The site also is also trying to be family friendly, and says they’ll censor out inappropriate content.
