You know, when someone turns off the lights you can still see their eyes? That doesn't happen in real life now does it? I've been wondering who came up with that weird concept and why. It's creepy.

It's not weird. Most cartoon characters are animals. Most animals' eyes are reflective and seem to glow in the dark.

It depends, usually it's for effect or other times it's because you won't have anything to look at if it's pitch black, this is why all cartoons tend to have 'darkness' as dark blue or have very contrasted light if they're in dungeons and stuff like that.

Still, reflective to light is not the same as glow in the dark. Someone very weird must have come up with that concept :s

Still, reflective to light is not the same as glow in the dark. Someone very weird must have come up with that concept :s

It doesn't take much light. The light of the moon or campfire is enough. I've spent plenty of time in the wilderness and when you look into a forested area it's quite dark and foreboding. If you happen to spot a creature (usually a raccoon), it's often only their eyes glowing in the pitch black darkness that you see and not their body.

Cartoons tend to exaggerate, too. Hence, they also make people's eyes glow the same way.

Maybe th eye liner have sparkles.

There would need to be light for it to reflect off the sparkles. Also, you don't put eyeliner into your eyes.

I first noticed it in Spongebob Squarepants. Left is Spongebob and on the right is Patrick:



Then again, these are cartoons we're talking about here. A lot of the things that happen in cartoons don't happen in real life.
