I figured it was to make it easier to see the characters hands.

Hands are a pain to animate: especially if tgey are dark. So shut it.

Daffy isn’t wearing anything around his neck. It’s a stripe.. like on a mallard Duck right?

I think birds don't wear gloves cuz it would look there is something heavy on the ends of their wings, and cuz their fingers are usually portrayed as feathers that they seem to be able to hold things with

tldw: anthropomorphism and expediency
It’s not fair—I keep curbing myself whenever I feel like pronouncing it “mischevious” and she just goes ahead and does it on camera :(

Well if you think about it, it distracts from the fact that mickey is a mouse and would have claws, but they want him to have human hands. Even that cow, she shouldn't have fingers at all, so they have her wearing gloves so you don't think about it.

This video fails to really answer the question. Saves time how? Cartoons mimic vaudeville? Have some supporting arguments.

Cus the hand fetish nibbas would go hecking wild You see what happened with Sonic, they want his shoes off
Skippy Bean (15 days ago)
One reason they wear gloves is because if there body was colored black you couldn't see what their black hands were doing in front of them. So they put gloves on them to make it easier to animate. If they didn't, it'd take extra time to draw a white line around the hand so you could differ between the hand and body.

Leave it up to Vox to concoct a supposed racist connection that doesn't actually exist.

I exactly think about that scene when I read the video title. And I have had the same damn question from my childhood till now
BassistBob (16 days ago)
Those old toons also had four fingers. When pinocchio turns into a real boy at 2:59 he loses the gloves and gains a finger on each hand. He's still a cartoon though, so maybe all glove wearing characters are really puppets.

Could it also be that the ANIMATORS, themselves, often wore gloves to protect their hands from wear and tear, etc? THANKS Great Question....

you’ve got to be an idiot if you expect birds to be wearing gloves

What is the obsession with people today assuming everything that happened in the past is about racism? The simplest answer is because gloves are interchangeable between many characters. You create templates for all the hand gestures and simply trace them on the character when needed.

I think Birds don't wear gloves in cartoons because their anatomical wings are used as arms by the animators. birds don't have legs and arms, just wings and arms and it seems unnatural to put a glove on the tip of the wing since birds don't have hands at the tips of their wings.

Ive gotta admit, drawing gloves vs hand is the same difficulty. If anything you’d be saving 1 min of details with a glove
