Who Wore It Best? 80s Cartoon Character Edition

in The 80s, Trends

If you’ve ever stood in line at a grocery store or Target for any amount of time you’ve seen it before- the myriad glossy-covered periodicals featuring the hottest trendy stars.

One feature they run frequently in print and online is the “Who Wore It Best” piece of hard-hitting journalism. Here’s a typical example, where US Magazine wants to know who pulls off barf flowers on pants suits better, Gwyneth Paltrow or Rose Byrne.

It’s time to put the ol’ USF spin on Who Wore It Best? with an infusion of neon, nonsense and animation- it’s Who Wore It Best? 80s Cartoon Character Edition.

Vote for who wore it best in the comments!


Better body-based projectile: Destro’s wrist rockets or Aphrodite’s boob rockets?


Better unruly eyebrows: Panthro or Miles Mayhem?


Prettier red hair: Strawberry Shortcake or Mon*Star?


Sexier Native American headband, loincloth, wristbands: Apache Chief or Spirit?


More lustrous pink hair: The Pink Panther or Jem?


So who wore it best? Hit the comments and weigh in on any or all of the matchups!

Destro, Panthro, MonStar, Spirit, Jem!

More of these please!!

Destro, but Aphrodite’s reload of said rockets was a win.

Miles Mayhem.

Mon*Star. Shortcake has a hat on. Loses points.

Apache Chief. He’s got the traditional “what a white person thinks a Native American should wear” outfit.. straight out of a 50s 60s western.

Pink Panther. Jem has nice hair but it’s probably a bitch in humid weather.

Yes! More of these please!!

Destro, because post-launch Aphrodite is missing something.
Miles Mayhem. By the way, why does Panthro have so little hair? Is he the Mr. Bigglesworth of the Thundercats?
Mon*Star. Strawberry Shortcake is one of the few ginger women who doesn’t give me a chubby.
Spirit, because Apache Chief is too white to be a real native American. #JohnnyDepp
Jem, because the Pink Panther has fur, not hair.

Just so you know, I nearly did a spit-take on the red hair question this morning. Hilarious! Monstarr definitely needed to tame that fro…
