A well-known technique in filmmaking and animation when designing a creature is to vary the size of the creature's eyes. If you want your creature to appear [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter cute]], give it eyes that are excessively large for its body. If you want your creature to appear [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever huge]], give it relatively tiny eyes. If you want it to be [[CuteGiant both huge and cute]], [[Film/HowToTrainYourDragon pay close attention.]]

** Double subversion: Some people consider the giant squid to be cute [[UglyCute in its own way]]. It helps that in real life it comes off as a GentleGiant.

Alternately, it could just be that big eyes are much more expressive than little eyes, which leads to GoodEyesEvilEyes when used for people in animation. PuppyDogEyes are a subtrope.
