then why not one finger and thumb? or even what would look like a mitten for hands?

Too non-human. 3 fingers (2 finger 1 thumb) is alienating, 2 is just plain unnatural. 4 isn't very noticable at all I feel. Hands are hard to animate I've heard.

Mitten hands doesn't really look like a hand. Imagine simpsons with everyone having mitten hands

3 fingers and 1 thumb is the standard for cartoon characters.
Its not harder to animate than 5, 6, 7 fingers and 1, 2, 3 thumbs.
