Hard candy is my favorite kind.


Animated cartoon = It is usually short and funny. This is what kids watch on TV.
Animated feature = It compares in length to a standard movie. The new "TIN TIN" is an animated feature.

Candy/candies = Both forms of the noun are acceptable.
Some people call candy "sweets", but even cakes are called sweets.

"Hard candy" is a term used for many kinds of candy. You will also hear "drops", a term used to describe candy that is round and hard.

Donay, not really. Cartoons are also shown in cinemas. It used to be common to see them, now it is quite rare. My favorite cartoon (that I would see at a cinema) was "Roadrunner", but there were many others.

As a cartoon is not necessarily animated. In newspapers newspapers it is common to see a solitary cartoon with a joke, a political statement, etc. If there are several cartoons together (let's say four or five) that tell a very short story, they are called "comic strips" or simply "comics". "The funny papers" is the section of some Sunday newspapers that is dedicated to "comics".
The word 'feature' does not appear in Oxford Dictionary, in this sense. I believe that for desenho animado the best option would be 'animated cartoon'. In fact I'll use it in a translation, and can't use just 'cartoon' because the word cartoon (in italics) also appears in the text. So I'll keep cartoon as cartoon (removing the italics) and use animated cartoon for 'desenho animado'.
