The Most Stylish Cartoons of All Time

  • Najib Benouar


You may not have realized it, but your sartorial consciousness was already being formed at a much earlier age than the day you discovered your first Americana blog or received that particularly slick belt on your 12th birthday...

It all began during your footie-pajama’d Saturday morning routine, thanks to an assortment of surprisingly stylish characters (of the cartoon variety). Whether it was Curious George’s yellow-hatted caretaker, Beast’s Renaissance-chic or Smithers’s bow tie. There was a lot to learn from the fastidiously drawn fashionistos of animated film and television—most importantly, the cardinal menswear rule of “building a daily uniform.” But who were the most stylish?

We’re glad you asked, because we’ve rounded up all 24 of them, with respect to their signature looks. Pants optional.»
