Because it is their style and it is easier to draw.

So they can't flip the bird

Fuck you.

Fuck you both

CalArts is inherently lazy.
They don't do anatomy
They don't do "On Model".

4< fingers is totally CalArts as what it teaches today

SU changes their finger numbers all the time
When it's close, it's 5
But 90% of the time, it's only 4

Fingers are the hardest to draw

>>94521868
Anon I know that the art quality's incredibly inconsistent but you don't have to lie, they're almost always 5 fingers unless it's a far-distance shot. In fact one of the only things the show's fucking consistent on is having 5 fingers.
>>
>>94522062
Oh shit
Sorry

I'm pretty drunk now.
I mistook SU for SvsFoE
That changed finger numbers.

Though given the laziness of typical SU animation, I wouldn't doubt them cheating that hard

Only D&M have four fingers.

>>94522105
It's cool man, at least you're not being a faggot and admit it.
>>
>>94520740
I feel that the number of fingers can easily depend on the simplicity of the character designs. Sometimes with simpler designs, four fingers kinda work better.

In the long run, though, I don't really mind. I don't see it as an issue of laziness or the like, and simply aspects of design styles.

I honestly find it fun.

Weird that no one said this yet.

Five fingers only fit on characters with certain proportions. Most cartoons are designed for four-fingered figures.

It was to save time on production in early animation. simpler/less shapes = less time to draw each frame. It might just be a finger, but the collective amount of time adds up with thousands of frames. Also, as a bonus fact, the white gloves were added so that the hands could read easier when everything was black and white, including the black bodies of the characters, like Mickey.
