Cartoon look: how was this made? rotoscopy? plugin?

I am trying to give my filmed footage a believable cartoon look. So far I am not convinced with the built-in effect that AE CS6 provides.

I wonder how the following clips were made:

Rotoscopy


#1: To me, it does not look like the built-in effect. The outlines seem too perfect to be generated automatically. But I think it's not handdrawn rotoscopy either: too many different frames to draw - and nobody would draw tiny extralines to make the outline nicer! (See timeframe 0:36-0:37)
Especially the scene in the streets (0:26-0:32) fills me with wonder.

#2&3: This is actually a second question. How was this morphing effect achieved? To me it often looks as if only a few keyframes were drawn by hand, and the inbetweens were morphed digitally. The last scene is an obvious one. (Start min1:26)


Was this done in After Effects? Are there any third party plugins to so this?
