If a mustache makes a man more manly, what does it do for a cartoon character? I’ll tell you:

The right facial pushbroom can do wonders for an upper lip. It can make dreary faces dazzling. It can spruce up that boring space between the cheekbones. It can mystify, intimidate, tickle and amuse you. It can catch soup.

Here are the 10 best cartoon character mustaches of all time.

Hah great list


Leviathan March 25, 2013 at 7:26 am

Outstanding list! I think Jaga from the Thundercats, and Wreck-Gar of Transformers, would have been a good choice for honorable mention.

ooh great calls. I would have loved to have had a robot on this list.


James March 25, 2013 at 9:05 am

very nice. So, sitcoms, cartoons, what mustache list is next? Movies?


Howie Decker March 25, 2013 at 9:45 am

possibly, I like to stay away from movies as long as I possibly can though. Maybe action figures? A lot of those would duplicate the cartoon list though.

The first one that jumped to mind was Dick Dastardly (from Dastardly & Muttley). Love the Hanna-Barbera!

Another that came to mind was Stan’s Dad, Randy Marsh, on South Park.

Love your Top 4, though. Good calls.


Howie Decker March 25, 2013 at 9:44 am

Yes! Crazy thing is I actually had Stan’s dad and Big Gay Al in my initial 10, but kept thinking of more that I had to add. I probably should have put them in honorable mentions, but then I hate having as many mentions as there were list entries. Could have easily done a top 20, but I find more people click and share a top 10 than a 20 or 50, so I stuck with that. Thanks for the comment!

Damn shame Cody Rhodes isn’t on here.


Howie Decker March 25, 2013 at 10:52 am

He’s not a cartoon! If only Claymation Werewolf’s “John Cena’s Rock n’ Wrestling” was a real thing, THEN Cody would be #1!

The Mario Bros. mustaches were interesting. Ladies could either choose a smooth ride with Luigi or get with Mario, who sported a crumb collector that was ribbed for her pleasure.

Dr. Mindbender should’ve repped G.I. Joe staches!


Howie Decker March 29, 2013 at 5:33 pm

True. Especially since he appears on the latest podcast ep!
