What Are the Best Cartoon Characters with Glasses?

Television series are the primary source of entertainment. As a result, we relate to certain fictional people on screen. Whether it's the way we think or act, there is a particular connection. For kids, the case is no different. Sometimes, we physically resemble animated cartoon characters with the glasses they wear. They do make us laugh so hard; But, they also teach us to embrace our imperfections. So, let's take a trip down memory lane, looking at the best cartoon characters with glasses.

1. Timeless Rectangle Eyeglasses

It's strange to realize that the world was introduced to Scooby-Doo and the gang over 50 years ago. Today, the group's legacy is still going strong! The successful Scooby-Doo franchise and its loveable characters have raised generations, so it's hard to forget the quick-witted, glasses-wearing Velma Dinkley.

Fans of the show will surely remember how the hilariously visually impaired cartoon character would permanently lose her glasses while running away from the evil villain. Jinkies! In retrospect, it sure would have been helpful if she wore a glasses chain to keep from losing her spectacles. The cute accessory would have also gone well with her iconic, quirky and geeky aesthetic.

True to the animated version, Velma, who Linda Cardellini played, rocked a pair of rectangle eyeglasses in the 2002 live-action Scooby-Doo movie. If you're like us and grew up watching Scooby-Doo, you'll be happy to hear that many versions of animated cartoon characters' glasses are available and ready to be worn by you!

The Rectangle eyeglasses look great on oval, round, heart and oblong face shapes.

2. Retro-Round Eyeglasses

One of the most memorable cartoon characters with glasses is Arthur Read. Arthur's PBS Kids animated television series was and still is a childhood classic for many. Those who loved watching the characters navigate through childhood life and dilemmas can immediately recognize Arthur's round brown glasses from a mile away.

In addition, the fact that the show revolves around a bespectacled kid makes children who wear glasses feel seen. Since its original release in 1996, the show is still running today! However, the daily adventures of Arthur Read and his friends will soon be coming to an end as the show intends to wrap up in its 25th season in 2022.

Soon enough, Arthur's glasses will be left within our memories. But, you can have your own version of the round eyeglasses if you like! So, there's plenty of time for you to pay tribute to the 90s cartoon character.

The retro-round eyeglasses look great on rectangle, square, diamond, heart and oblong face shapes.

3. Classic Rectangle Eyeglasses

Put a finger down if Carl and Ellie's love story in the first 10 minutes of the Disney Pixar movie UP! in 2009 raised your standards for marriage and everything about love, relationship, and life-long partnership… yep, us too.

First, like a curious child, then in his wedding, and later as a grumpy older man, Carl is portrayed wearing the same striking rectangle frames throughout the film as his trademark. The animated cartoon character's glasses were part of his identity and our childhood. In contrast, the late actor Ed Asner who voiced Carl, was only occasionally seen wearing glasses. At one point, he even wore similar frames to Carl's!

The bold and thick rectangle glasses are timeless, made for a classic and sophisticated look. Like the popular cartoon character, the square frames will be a staple in your eyewear collection.

The frames look great on oval, round, heart and diamond face shapes.

4. Unique Cat-Eye Eyeglasses

If you've ever had to watch over a toddler, you'd know their days could be pretty eventful. The 90s animated television series, Rugrats, delves into a group of toddlers' daily lives and adventures. If you're a fan of the show, you certainly remember the cartoon character, Miriam Pickles.

The Nickelodeon series ran for 13 years and gained many awards, including four Daytime Emmy Awards. We just can't get enough of the unique cartoon characters created. If you think about it clearly, every show designer paints an image of their fictional characters in their mind first. Then, they transform their thoughts into actual figures. Finally, they think about every little detail that sets them apart from others. For Miriam Pickles, it was her cat-eye glasses.

If you don't know this cartoon character with glasses, we're talking about a very active senior citizen. She's Grandpa Lou's only cousin who likes green very much. But, despite her age, she likes to dress up and wear a wig. The cat-eye glasses add a special touch to that cartoon character's confidence of hers. But, not in driving.

Cat-eye frames are classic and boost your confidence. They'll undoubtedly become your go-to pair. You'll have your version of Miriam Pickle's glasses because you can find them in a variety of styles and patterns.

The cat-eye frames look good on round, oval, square, rectangle, heart and oblong face shapes.

5. Frameless Round Eyeglasses

Who can forget the bellied Doc from Walt Disney's classic animated film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs? Doc is the leader of the seven dwarfs and is the only one in the group who wears glasses. The movie first came out in 1937. Though decades have passed, Snow White remains a classic in every child's memory. The Disney film gets passed down from generation to generation because of the cartoon characters, including Doc. So who is he?

As we mentioned earlier, the animated cartoon character, Doc, is the leader of the group of Dwarfs. He's known for his belly and his rational behaviours. He was among the first to show kindness to Snow White. He's a cartoon character like no other because of his father figure. The metal round eyeglasses add that fatherly touch to his overall way of thinking.

Back in the day, frameless round glasses were the only thing available. You may think it's too simple, yet we find ourselves asking for them as the years go by. If this is your first time buying eyeglasses, you'll be adding a unique and quirky touch to your everyday style!

The round frames look great on rectangle, square, diamond, heart and oblong face shapes.

6. Simple Aviator Eyeglasses

Our next one on the list of best cartoon characters with glasses is a fan favourite. No jokes, everyone loved the boy genius with the small height. We're talking about none other than Cartoon Network's Dexter's Laboratory (or simply Dexter's Lab). The made-up cartoon character show was about a brilliant scientist who had a secret lab hidden from his unknowing parents in his bedroom. Funny enough, his secret lab was often visited by his hyperactive sister Dee Dee, whose famous line was, "Ooh! What does this button do?"

Despite coming from an average American family, Dexter had a unique accent that the show's creator Genny Tartakovsky described as "Eastern European" because, according to him, "all scientists are foreign and have accents"! But, of course, all scientists wear glasses, too!

Dexter was famous for his simple aviator eyeglasses. However, his were a bit different. They're black, thick-framed, and they cover most of his face. But, even on cartoon characters, aviator eyeglasses continue to make their success even better. They are here to stay on-trend, making it impossible to add them to your eyewear collection.

The cartoon character's glasses look great on oval, diamond, round, rectangle, square, oblong and heart face shapes.

7. Classic Square Eyeglasses

We like exploring options before making any decisions regarding trendy eyeglasses. But, little did you know, cartoon characters can be an inspiration to us all! So if you seem interested in the square shape, you know Hank Hill made it to the list of best cartoon characters with glasses.

The Fox animated television series King of The Hill stars Hank Rutherford Hill as its main protagonist in 1997. Hank seems to be your ordinary guy living in the fictional town in Texas. But, The Economist described him as one of the wisest people on television. He is known for his square glasses, his love for drinking beer and his job as an assistant manager of a local branch of Strickland Propane.

You can find similar shapes to the 90s cartoon character's glasses. The square frames never seem to be going out of style. You can have wooden glasses in the same form to make you stand out from the crowd, just like Hank Hill. They're perfect, lightweight, and they'll sit comfortably on your face.

8. Vintage Round Eyeglasses

Circling back to the round shapes (pun intended), we're taking a break from shows and moving towards a movie that has brought magic within our hearts. Our next one in line for best cartoon characters with glasses is none other than John Darling. He is the middle child of George and Mary and the brother of Wendy and Michael. Does it ring a bell? You're correct; we're talking about John that stars in Disney's 1953 movie Peter Pan!

The classic movie brought joy to all of our hearts, and it played a significant part in our childhood. The little Darling is known for being part of Disney characters with glasses and speaking sophisticatedly, like his father. But, who can forget about John's wardrobe? His dark brown hair matched the colour of his round glasses. In addition, he wears a white nightshirt, a black hat, black shoes and carries a black umbrella.

The cartoon character's glasses are under the category of the vintage round. Fast forward today; you can find them in different places made with high-end materials; just like the square shape, the wooden glasses will do you justice. You'll be mimicking John Darling's eyewear style by adding a modern twist to your fashion. Classic, sophisticated and versatile, these fashionable glasses will be sure to enhance your everyday look!

9. Metal Round Eyeglasses

We're not going anywhere without telling you about our last pick of round frames as part of the best cartoon characters with glasses. We're staying with characters named Peter but moving to a show loved by many. But, of course, we're talking about Peter Griffin in Family Guy!

He is married to Lois Griffin and is the father of 3 kids. He is the main protagonist in the American animated sitcom on Fox Broadcasting Company. Peter, voiced by show creator Seth MacFarlan, first appeared on screen in 1998. Everyone knows Mr. Griffin as the chubby middle-class Irish American wearing metal round eyeglasses. The Rhode Island citizen changed many jobs till he landed one as an employee in the shipping department of the Pawtucket Patriot Brewery.

Although he frequently likes to get drunk with his friends, fans of the show can't shake the feeling of wanting to have a part of Peter in our lives. You can now own a pair of metal round eyeglasses similar to Peter's. The fine frames are handmade with premium stainless steel with a touch of Ebony Wood temples. They also feature slim lines and an arc-shaped nose bridge for a classic, minimal and versatile look. We know they'll bring the fun and quirky side of you as they did to Peter on the show.

10. Upswept Cat-Eye Eyeglasses

Joining Miss Miriam is another famous cartoon character loved by thousands. She happens to wear every woman's favourite. We're going back to the cat-eye eyeglasses. They're just so comfortable and wanted; we just had to feature them twice on the list of best cartoon characters with glasses.

Let's remember Deputy Mayor Callie Briggs from the hit show SWAT Kats. She's the ultimate lady boss by wearing a pink suit with cat-eye glasses. These glasses are the perfect shape that adds fierceness to her character if you ask us.

Callie is highly independent and capable of taking care of herself in a crisis. This sounds like a perfect description for any woman wanting a cat-eye frame. A little bonus for yous is that you can find them in all sizes and materials.

For example, you can catch a semi-rimless pair of cat-eye eyeglasses. The former are handmade from premium stainless steel and feature authentic Ebony Wood temples. The striking frames include angular lines and a winged butterfly tip for a vintage style like Callie's but with a modern take.

11. Bold Square Eyeglasses

Finishing off the list, we're coming back to the square shape for our final pick of best cartoon characters with glasses. Again, we're examining the look and style of Sam Sparks in the computer-animated science-fiction comedy: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.

Samantha Sparks, commonly known as Sam, is one of the main protagonists in the movie. She plays a young weather intern who aspires to be an expert meteorologist. But, should we wish to dig a little deeper, she wears a great outfit, her beige shorts with two different shades of purple shirts. But, who can forget her oversized square eyeglasses?

You can find a similar shape made with different materials. But, again, you'll get the best results: Classic square glasses with slightly rounded edges and a saddle bridge that is sophisticated and distinct all from Rose Wood. These lightweight frames are made for an ensured comfortable fit all day long.

12. Round Sunglasses

So we're going back in circles towards sunglasses for one of our picks of the best cartoon characters with glasses. We gave you a hint of our next frames; did you miss it?  

We all love dogs, and our childhood memories would never be complete without the one and only: Snoopy! Charles M. Schulz creates the loyal beagle as part of his comic strip, Peanuts. Starting from the 1950s and to this day, Snoopy continues to be one of the iconic cartoon characters that ever appeared on TV. The original sketches of the beagle were inspired by the creator's own dog, Spike.

Back to the real deal, we know Snoopy has a vast imagination. He likes to be in different characters. Among them is a college student named Joe Cool. The former likes to wear round sunglasses in black to keep up with this reputation.

Just like eyeglasses, round frames will never go out of style. They have the power to elevate your wardrobe and take you to a higher level in a single try. You can find Snoopy's sunglasses in various sizes, patterns and colours. What we know for sure, that vintage-inspired shades will become your favourite accessory for a day out in the sun.

13. Classic Aviator Sunglasses

We're saving out the best choice for last. Don't think we haven't thought about the sunglasses too! There are plenty of cartoon characters known for their famous shades. But, not just any shape, we're taking you to the classics. Of course, we're dealing with aviator sunglasses and that one popular cartoon character spent all episodes wearing the same classic aviator sunglasses shape and nothing else. Did you guess who?

Cartoon Network character's very own, Johnny Bravo. The iconic Elvis Presley-esque has a series with the same name as the main character. The show follows one of the coolest animated characters: Our boy Johnny famously wore sunglasses and came off as an arrogant and self-centred womanizer.

The comedy typically followed his failed attempts to get hot dates, though women often rejected him. Nevertheless, he stole the hearts of many with his built-up muscles and black aviator sunglasses. He never takes them off, and we can't blame him. The stylish trend has been in vogue for years now. Getting a similar shape to that of the cartoon character, you're winning a pair of sunnies for a lifetime.

The aviator sunglasses look great on oval, diamond, round, rectangle, square, oblong and heart face shapes.
