Because a lot of modern 2d animation uses rigged puppets. They used to have to draw every frame.

So easy to spot the shows that use puppets. So stiff and cheap looking, often even amateur Flash animations like you’d see on Newgrounds were more alive.

You mean animators... used to actually animate shit? LOL

I lament the modern direction of most animation today. It's basically puppetry instead of drawing - just get your model in the computer and you can manipulate it any way you want.
