Walt Disney created racist works back then “songs of the south”. It comes straight from vaudeville and blackface performances.

Birds don’t wear gloves cause their arms are actually wings and their fingers are actually feathers, it would be hard to fly with gloves on your wings

It also makes it easier to identify what side of the hand is being shown, if it's plain, you're looking at the palm, but if it has those little stripes, you're looking at the top of the hand.

Hey, Vox, can you please explain a certain eye design on some cartoon characters, where they're just dots with no sclerae? Some cartoon characters who have those are the Peanuts kids, everybody on George Shrinks, and that groundhog in "The Lion King". How do they see without crashing into anything, and what would the skulls look like?

Animals like daddy duck or characters from looney toons don’t wear gloves because they are from a different animator and it’s a whole different story for Disney

Lazy animators and executives who just want to put out a cartoon to make money without having to care about the details. That is what I call.

We need The voice of the same guy.. Who use for vox altas, downtown etc... You are not good as he is. Please don't take over

I don't think I've heard the answer before, but quick guess is makes animation cheaper, means they can use the same cells for other characters and save an assload of time animating hands, which most people hate drawing at all.
so why does Donald Duck doesn’t wear pants when he’s out and about, but yet he’s covered in a towel when he takes a bath?
