Ever notice that the vast majority of cartoon shows have their characters being left-handed? Not by title of course, since the characters aren't ever described as left handed. However, whenever they throw a ball, use a baseball bat/hockey stick/golf club, punch, etc, they most often use their left hand or use a left-dominant stance. Maybe because it's easier to draw it that way? Or maybe cartoonists model these actions by watching themselves in the mirror? Either way, a disproportionate amount of cartoon characters are left handed in practice.
