For anthropomorphisized cartoon characters, 3 fingers and a thumb have always
been preferred, going back to as early (if not earlier) as the 1920's Felix
The Cat animated cartoons and of course Mickey Mouse and friends in the
1930's. I believe it's preferred for two reasons: one, it's more
aesthetically pleasing to the eyes; and two: it's easier to animate. We
really, REALLY wanted to have Sonic drawn with four fingers and a thumb in
the Archie SONIC comics, but SEGA wouldn't let us. They didn't understand
our position, as stated above.
