Years ago, I used to make animations and cartoons and stuff using Flash, back when it was Macromedia, before Adobe bought them out.

Shortly afterwards my career took a different path entirely and I've not looked at anything like this since... I really want to start doing some fun stuff again, more as a hobby than anything else; life is too serious these days.

So I was wondering what is the standard these days?

I understand Flash is dead/dying so something must have replaced it - what is that something?

Adobe Flash became Adobe Animate.

Whether or not that fills your needs is impossible for me to say.

There are other things out there but they all depend on what specifically you want to create. Many 3D applications are capable of animation. And there are products specifically designed to animate things like user interfaces as well.
