How come the British don't import more cartoons to the US?

I recall watching Danger Mouse when it was introduced to the US when I was a kid:

I still think it's a brilliant idea.

I have seen Nick Park's Wallace and Gromit:

How come they don't import MORE British animation to the US?

by the by, the british would export to the US, the US would import, probably not enough interest, slang terms used sometimes don't translate well, i know lots of folks who have trouble understanding british tv (i myself love it), and while they can dub it that adds to the expense
