WHY IN THE WORLD DO SO MANY CARTOONS HAVE PUNS FOR THE EPISODE TITLES
 
the Loud House has them, my life as a teenage robot has them, pepper ann has them, and probably most cartoons have them.

to make you chuckle and question how it's relevant to make you want to watch it.

i like puns but i like it better when the creators of video games actually think of an original level or world name instead of basing it off a pun; it makes the game seem more real

(that sounded a lot more harsh than i meant it to be; i like puns a lot but original names makes the game more special to me)

probably because puns are more effective and easier to think of than original titles, and easier to say

it's probably a trope by now.

altho one of my favorite cartoons ever is ed edd and eddy and all of their episode titles include "ed" somehow.

Yeah. If the title was dead serious it would be better.
Animation WD-11; in which a mouse pilots a nautical machine.
Animation HB-55; in which the day to day life of a neolithic stonemason is documented.
Animation AT-23b; part two of a comic chronicling the lives of alien martial artists.
Animation HB-27; a rabbit protagonist thwarts death time and again, outwitting a speech-impaired hunter

I mean good question, but I think a better one would be "Why do so many cartoon characters wear gloves?"

That one actually has a given answer

Back in the 1920s the picture quality needed help from some serious contrast. It was easier to see a glove hand do things then just a weird extension of the arm goop move about. Look how uncanny some of the Felix shorts look pre-glove


Also people tend not to realize this but for the working class at the turn of the century people actually wore gloves a lot of the time, so it didn't seem unnatural. I forget the name of the trope but it's a case of the design choice becoming obsolete and sticking around anyway because we still expect and accept it in the context of a cartoon
