10 Cartoon Characters with Glasses we all Love

Have you ever noticed how some of the most memorable cartoon characters sport a distinctive pair of glasses? From the brainy intellects to the endearingly clumsy, these bespectacled figures have captured our hearts and entertained us for generations. Whether they’re solving mysteries, inventing gadgets, or just entertaining us with their humour, these characters show us that glasses can be a powerful symbol of personality and style. Let’s take a nostalgic trip through the world of animation to explore some of the most famous cartoon characters with glasses.

1. Velma from Scooby-Doo


The geeky cartoon character with the glasses 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. Did you know, she couldn’t even see her own hands in front of her face if she wasn’t wearing her glasses?

2. Eric Cartman from South Park

Eric Cartman from South Park

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 one thing that people love about him is his cool pair of sunglasses.

3. Dexter from Dexter’s Laboratory

Dexter from Dexter’s Laboratory

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 them.

4. Johnny from Johnny Bravo

Johnny from Johnny Bravo

Johnny from Johnny Bravo is another popular cartoon character who is loved for his sunglasses. When we talk about the characters with sunglasses, he can be too over-the-top at times, but you would agree how his trademark pompadour, karate chops and tight black tee made him so ultra-confident himself. Everyone loved his classy black pair of sunglasses that he wore all the time.

5. Simon from Alvin and the Chipmunks

Simon from Alvin and the Chipmunks

The next character is Simon, the serious and smart one from the three singing chipmunks making trouble for themselves. Just like his personality, his black round glasses are indeed spectacular and definitely among our favourite picks for cartoon characters with glasses. 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.

6. Carl Fredricksen from Up

Carl Fredricksen from Up

Remember the old-aged Carl Fredricksen from the movie ‘Up’? Well, it 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.

7. Edna Mode from The Incredibles

Edna Mode from The Incredibles

While The Incredibles try to balance between a normal and superhero life, Edna Mode is the lady encouraging them to 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’! And we can undoubtedly add her to our list of female characters with glasses.

8. Linda from Rio

Linda from Rio

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 preppy yet modest pair of 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.

9. Nobita from Doraemon

Nobita from Doraemon

For many fans, Nobita's glasses are so subtle that they're easy to overlook. But once you notice them, you can't unsee them! These thin, metallic frames epitomise the 'barely-there' look, allowing Nobita’s expressive eyes and emotions to take centre stage. Despite their understated design, Nobita's glasses play a crucial role in defining his character. They symbolise his gentle, somewhat clumsy personality and add to his everyman charm. It's a reminder that sometimes, the simplest accessories can make the most significant impact. Nobita's glasses may be understated, but they are an essential part of what makes him a popular and relatable character in the world of animation.

10. SpongeBob from SpongeBob SquarePants

SpongeBob from SpongeBob SquarePants

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! Though he might not be a glasses fan, just the special feature of catching the jellyfish with his glasses, SpongeBob has made it to the list of characters that wear glasses.
