That bit goes back farther in animation. There were plenty of cartoons that used to do that. Tom and Jerry did it quite a bit for one.
Partly it was "animal/kid perspective" but really it was an easy way to use the same character animation over and over. They can say whatever you want and you dont have to animate the face and mouth
Why is it that the "Mom" character resembles the character of the same name in Cow and Chicken (with the upper half of her torso invisible)? Did R&S have a big influence in the development of C&C or even have any of John's involvement in it?
Yeah it was a common corner-cutting trick, though looking at how well it worked out for Ms. Serra Bellum from the Powerpuff Girls would indicate that most cartoonists nowadays view it as sexism. Off topic, but still very lame that they ax'd her.

John wasn't involved in Cow and Chicken - but everyone else on R&S was.

But it was basically using the old cartoon cliche of showing a pet owner or adult from the waist down. Cow and Chicken, of course, parodied this when they showed that their mom and dad were just legs.

Thanks for the clarification - it makes sense they had the same crews albeit without John, as instead of a violent alcoholic villain (George Liquor, obviously based on John's father), you have a cartoon Devil who cosplays as a doctor, chicken factory operator, etc. Cow & Chicken overall had far less innuendo, probably as it didn't have John involved in it. When John took centre stage, we ended up with "Naked Beach Frenzy" (which had absolutely nothing entertaining in it at all, just badly-drawn cartoon partial nudity) and "Altruists" (which featured the log-sawing scene, and Stimpy's incredibly racist Mexican impression).

The parody of the invisible upper body is one thing I remember vividly from Cow & Chicken, both in the pilot when they zoomed back to reveal they had no upper body, and in one episode where Cow and Chicken were searching in a closet and pulled out the upper halves of Mom & Dad.

Reminded of Ub Iwerks' "Tom Thumb" doing that in the 30's.

The reveal of Cow and Chicken's parents in the pilot was the most extreme use of this cliche.

Cow and Chicken had a lot of innuendo. There was a hell of a lot of gender-bending humor. People want to say what CN has now is corrupting kids - where the hell were you back in the day?

The Cow and Chicken innuendo stuff was for gags. Modern day stuff don’t want it to be humor claims it’s harmful and want it to be taken seriously.
