Because it's a cartoon, and in most cartoons, the characters have big eyes. They allow for expressions to be conveyed way, way more easily than regular-sized eyes.

It’s just part of the animation. Plus as iceiwynd said, it helps with stuff like facial expressions. Plus it’s kinda cute and overall cartoony!

What you should really be asking is why people from Anime shows have such big freaking mouths.

Why are all the characters have big eyes? Because you touch yourself at night.

^ That failed, big time.

And yeah, big eyes are generally just used to express the characters' feelings/thoughts or whatever. Also, with chibi, when it's used to add a cute effect to the character.

Strange, it seemed that way when you posted that.

Yeah, but that was you. 'Why are all the characters have big eyes? Because you touch yourself at night.' That's something I'd expect from a complete jackass who is trying to impress everybody else and make them laugh. Shut the f*ck up, trying to look smart by making somebody else look dumb, you dickhead.

In a lot of cartoons, children are shown with huge eyes because it makes them look cuter and more innocent. I guess that's a part of why the SP kids might have the large eyes.

Actually, what I wrote originally was a joke. Everyone repeated just about the same f*cking answer, so instead of repeating the same garbage like everyone else, I decided to kid around. It wasn't the greatest joke on the planet, but not to belittle anyone. Sorry if your life is so unfufilling and negative that you took my post as a negative response. Next time I'll spell it out to people like so so you'll know next time if it's worth getting worked up over nothing. Like I said, I'm not here to impress strangers...but the same can be said about you.

You seem to be an adult, so I'll assume that you're at least over eightteen. I basically said all I wanted to from the paragraph above. I stand by what I wrote. This negative teenage blasting on the internet bullsh*t is beneath me. Because, like most people on here, they have other things to do than to argue on a f*cking message board about a f*cking cartoon. I've have better things to do then to post over 3000 posts on a message board that you've been on not even a year. Wow, if that doesn't win the prize for the Anthony Michael Hall Award for depressing social status, I don't know what does. You might as well knock your own lunch tray out of your own had, buddy.

This will be my final post regarding this matter. If you still want to hold a grudge and have the "last word" on "blasting me" then be my guest. Have fun, Jay C.
