If you think that cartoons are only meant for entertainment then you might be wrong. Many times cartoons teach children (and adults!) important life lessons which are hard for other mediums to impart. Read on to take a trip down memory lane as we talk about our favourite cartoon characters and their ‘eyeconic glasses.
1. Velma from Scooby-Doo
The geeky girl from the Scooby-Doo series, Velma is the youngest member of Mysteries Inc. And the most brainy one who always had plans to get the gang out of any trouble. Although slightly shy, Velma certainly looked nerd-cool with her squarish glasses on. She is also one of the original female cartoon characters with glasses. Did you know, she couldn’t even see her own hands in front of her face if she wasn’t wearing her glasses?
Cartman or Eric Theodore Cartman of South Park is one of the people’s least favourite cartoon characters because of his narcissistic nature. Although highly intelligent, Cartman’s anger and manipulative behaviour aren’t much loved. But he does wear cool sunglasses most of the time! Maybe all cartoon characters who wear glasses which are round in shape, have a good choice. What say?
The original Dexter! Who doesn’t know this genius cartoon character with big glasses. Dexter runs a secret laboratory in his house while trying to deal with his annoying sister. But guess what? We have a whole collection named after Dexter! And you don’t have to run a lab to get your hands on those glasses. Just get an awesome pair which you like the most.
He can be too over-the-top at times, but you would agree how his trademark pompadour, karate chops and the tight black tee made him so ultra-confident of himself. While no woman might be interested in him, I sure loved his classy black sunglasses that he wore all the time.
Simon, the serious and smart one from the three singing chipmunks making trouble for themselves, is who I want to talk about. And why not? Just like his personality, his black round glasses are indeed spectacular. Facts, grammar or choice of glasses, he’s right with most things. That’s the reason why he’s one of the most admired cartoon characters with round glasses.
Remember the old-aged Carl Fredricksen from the movie ‘Up’? Well, seems like no old man has better donned a rectangular pair than him. His thick black glasses have seen a lot. The death of his beloved wife and her dream that he goes on to fulfil. No wonder, he is an elderly cartoon character with glasses that people absolutely adore. Want such a pair of always-by-your-side glasses? Find them here!
While The Incredibles try to balance between a normal and superhero life, Edna Mode is the lady encouraging them for the latter. After all, she is a designer of superhero suits which help them enhance their powers. Her round and wide, thick-rimmed spectacles are what helps her make the designs ‘incredible’!
Known popularly as the best friend of the blue macaw who she saved, Linda is a girl with a big and kind heart. Her green eyes and the reddish outfit that she wears match beautifully well with her peppy yet modest glasses. You need to meet this girl in ‘Rio’ if you haven’t. If you wish, also try this pair of glasses we have that resembles hers.
I’ll be honest - for a long time I didn’t even realise Nobita wears glasses. But you too might be surprised to know that he’s a cartoon character with big glasses. And that’s what thin, metallic frames do, achieving a barely-there look and keeping all attention to your face.
Remember how SpongeBob used to try and catch jellyfish with his spectacles? Well, I hope you don’t treat your specs like that. If you are eccentric like SpongeBob and like doing unusual stuff, I suggest you wear quirky glasses that help you stand out!
