Focal length plays a big part in how things can look! I’m not saying it the end all solution, but it is worth pointing out!
I’m going to make the huge assumption that at the time of original production, the cartoon operates in a world where “cameras” are in the 70-200mm is focal lengths (using that, as that’s what most studio photographers have) This is based on the very few perspective shots in the series (everything looks quite flat)…
Knower days, both animation and are more closely linked to a sub 50mm, wide angle world (24mm being a very good compromise between a wide angle lens, without things warping to silly levels) You will see this in animation where rooms seam to converge to a point, lending a greater sense of perspective and depth to a scene.
Artistic license comes into this naturally… So how does this effect Jigglypuff? Well: those perspective lines and flats I was talking about? yeah… that’s what’s going on. To take a picture of Jigglypuff with a 70-200mm lens vs a 24mm lens, you are going to have to move WAY further back from the subject for the long focal length vs the wide angle lens! since Jiglypuffs ears/feet are seen in perspective (points coming from the top of Jigglypuff’s head) they more easily seen with the wider angle!
Hope this helped with the discussion somewhat!
Also: it’s just a show, you should really just relax!
