    By 1915, film studios began producing cartoons series.

    By 1915, film studios began producing cartoons series.
    Can I rewrite the above sentence as follows:
    By 1915, film studios began to produce cartoons series.
    Is there any difference in meaning between them?
    Thanks for help.

    They mean the same. I would write "cartoon series" not "cartoons series".

    Thank you!
    I would write "cartoon series" not "cartoons series".
    Do you mean that it isn't wrong with "cartoons series"?
    At first I think that "caroon" here is as an adjective therefore it must be "cartoon" not "cartoons" but I am not sure.

    It should be "cartoon" singular.

    Yes, it is incorrect. Series is a plural, cartoons is also a plural.
    I'm not a teacher yet, but I am studying a Bachelor of Education with an English Literature major at Charles Sturt University, in NSW, Australia.
