I know anime means animation and so does cartoon meaning that definition as well in most countries to most people and than there's the fans and than there's the critics.

Yes Avatar is anime but what if it was an anime made in Japan?

I know they did it to the Power Puff Girls and other series and movies.

So. I'm not sure.

Would you guys be happy about it?

Avatar is already considered an anime to some people even though I completely disagree, but even then it's close enough in style that I don't think anyone would want to remake it in Japan. PPG is really different though in terms of art style so that might be why the Japanese were interested in it. I'm actually not sure how Japan was allowed to make a PPG anime in the first place, I don't think Nick would ever allow it with Avatar.

I dunno if I'd be happy or anything, I'd just find it unnecessary and pointless to do an Avatar anime. I really don't want more of Japan's influence to rub off on Avatar then it already has, especially nowadays.

I'm actually not sure it was all that popular in Japan like PPG was.

I think it'd be an interesting contrast, but... hmm.  I'm not sure.  Well, if someone made it, I'd certainly check it out.

And beg your pardon, Roy: what's PPG?

EDIT: beg your pardon again--I think I figured it out.  Power Puff Girls, right?

Yep, a japanese animation studio made Powerpuff Girls Z. it was... interesting, not exactly bad, just interesting.

But I think the major difference between PPG and Avatar:
PPG was a Slice of Life/Monster of the Week series, so it could be expanded and adapted into something more story-related.
Avatar IS an epic story, and any changing of it could turn it into something that it isn't at its core. I don't trust anyone with a re-make, because it wouldn't be the same.
