After WWII Japan wanted to make T.V. but they couldn't because most of their actors were trained in classic Japanese theatre as opposed to the western acting techniques. Because of this they found alternate routes for creative expression, namely manga. Inspired half by the comic heroes of the west and half by early animations like Mickey Mouse and the Looney Tunes Manga took form and from there spread to anime.
The style of people being coloured and drawn in a more western fashion persisted all throughout the evolution of anime until we get to what we see now. Anime, though it's changed a lot over the years, can still be traced back to it's roots.
This is also why there is so much slapstick humour in anime, because there was a lot of it in the cartoons the original mangaka were inspired by. However, whilst the slapstick and over-the-top movements have become more tame in America Japan have kept it as over the top and abrasive as ever it was, if not more-so.
Quick note, hair colour is another oddity in anime that arguably came from the japanese culture wanting anime to have a lot of colour to it to counterbalance the black and white manga format.
There you go. A quick deconstruction of aesthetic styles in anime with a few extra titbits thrown in on the side.
