  • I've always wondered. I would imagine because they aren't real, they don't need the 5th finger or so there is no middle finger!!!

  • Its about the space, and, honestly, a lot of artists hand trouble with the hands...so making them more cartoony is easier...but looks funny with all 5 fingers. LOL

  • i know it's weird! but i have heard once that the Disney in Hong Kong has a Mickey Mouse with 5 fingers instead of 4. this is because it scared the children. apparently bad people (criminals) would get their fingers cut off back in the old days. i dont know if this is true or not.
