Lay Ze-Man is very close. It's was most likely to reduce the amount of line work that needs to be done. There is a saying in the animation industry along the lines of "A line drawn is a mile done" or something like that. For one drawing a mustache is no problem, but some scenes can sometimes have more than 100 drawings. This not only means that you would have to draw that mustache 100 times, you would have to make sure that the line work for the mustache maintains the same shape as well as make sure the lines don’t “boil” or jitter.
