For many of us, cartoons have been a part of our lives for as long as we can remember. They’ve provided laughter, joy, and even a few tears!
Cartoon characters with glasses are a dime a dozen, but no two are the same. Each has their own brand of charm, made even more memorable by their signature glasses.
Here are some of our favorite cartoon characters with glasses — some of which may also be yours — and tips on how to make their look your own.

1. Spongebob from Spongebob Squarepants

Spongebob Squarepants is arguably one of the most adorable animated characters ever created. With his bubbly personality and unwavering kindness towards his friends, he’s easy to fall in love with. His square-framed glasses help him stand out and charm his way into the hearts of everyone that he meets!
If you want to embody this character’s fun, quirky energy, black frames with a full rim like these rectangular Dynamic glasses are the ones for you.

Aside from how it is very durable and is made up of high quality materials, this type of glasses will not only make you look cute and bubbly, but is also versatile enough to mix and match with your outfits easily too!
If you’re wondering which face shape these glasses work best with, it’s definitely a round one! These angular glasses can help balance out the roundness of your face while complementing your features!

2. Velma from Scooby Doo

Velma is the brains of Mystery Inc., but she’s also a little bit socially awkward. Although she’s left out of the mystery-solving action sometimes, her brilliant and analytical spirit always shines through – a trait that’s emphasized by her signature square-framed glasses. Together with her bright orange sweater and red skirt, Velma’s outfit has become synonymous with the ‘loveable brainiac’ look.
If you want to cop the look, our Navy eyeglasses are definitely the ones you’re looking for!

Like the rectangular frames above, square frames are also flattering for round faces. If that’s you, just put a pair on to get an instant boost of confidence!

3. Johnny from Johnny Bravo

Who doesn’t love Johnny Bravo? He is a self-professed Casanova who is always trying to win the ladies over with his good looks and pickup lines — even if he doesn’t always succeed. With this tight black shirt, towering blonde hair, and black sunglasses, Johnny Bravo is the picture of all-American handsomeness.
If you want to achieve Johnny’s swoon-worthy look, these Famed eyeglasses will help you do just that.

Aside from how lightweight it is, these frames are made of durable materials that can withstand any tough situation you find yourself in — just like Johnny! The frames’ classic shape makes them easy to style with everyday ensembles too. If you have an angular or square face like our animated heartbreaker here, you won’t find a more complementary design than this.

4. Mirabel from Encanto

Encanto told us not to talk about Bruno, but we can certainly talk about Mirabel all day long! Anyone that loves Encanto is certainly in love with the plucky heroine with a heart of gold too. Her character has charm and grit in equal measure, demonstrated through her catchy musical numbers and role as the glue that holds her family together.
One of the most memorable aspects of her look is a pair of green round spectacles that play up her bubbly and loving nature, endearing her to viewers. To get her look, the Winnie Glasses are a dead ringer for Mirabel’s iconic pair!

These frames are perfect for when you need something modern yet fashionable, thanks to their unique shape and bold color. If you have strong features like big eyes or a sharp nose, the rounded curves of these frames will complement them by balancing them out.

5. Carl from Up

Despite his grouchy facade, Carl Fredricksen from Up has a soft side to him that reminds us of our own grandpas. Part of his signature look is his wide, thick glasses, which he wears from childhood all the way to old age.
With our Comedy Glasses, you will not only embody Carl’s lovable grandpa energy, you’ll also add a retro flair to your everyday look.

A pair that’s as filled with personality as it is classic, these frames are for those who want to stand out but still be able to match their specs with anything they wear. Round faces suit these angular frames best, as the latter will add more structure and dimension to them.

6. Simon from Alvin and the Chipmunks

There is a lot to love about Simon from Alvin and the Chipmunks. He’s an adorable little guy who loves his family and friends, but he can also be kind of a troublemaker sometimes. Apart from being the most recognisable part of his look, Simon’s glasses are a symbol of his high I.Q., and he is undoubtedly the smartest of his three siblings.
Great intellect aside, Simon is made more adorable by the thick-rimmed, circular glasses he sports. With our Bobby glasses, you can look as studious and cute as Simon.

Mouqy’s round Bobby frames.

While such distinctively round frames may not be everyone’s cup of tea, they do work great for faces with a prominent jaw line or a sharp nose. Plus, if you want something that’s unabashedly different, these are definitely up your alley.

7. Doc from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Doc may be a little underrated compared to his fellow dwarf brothers like Grumpy and Sleepy, but he’s got his own charm all the same. As the leader, he’s like a big brother to all of them, and the others all look to him for guidance. He is known for his signature tinted round glasses, which bring out his wise and calm nature.
Members of #TeamDoc can achieve his classic look with the Occasion glasses, and as its name suggests, it will turn anything you wear into a truly special occasion.

With black rims and a gold nose bridge as well as temples, the Occasion frames are a classic design with a subtly glamorous spin. As with most round designs, they suit those with square or heart-shaped faces best.

8. Margo from Despicable Me

Similar to Doc, Margo from Despicable Me projects a natural aura of leadership, which befits her role as the eldest of three sisters. Her glasses reveal not only her take-charge personality, but also her smarts.
To attain Margo’s cool and collected vibe, try out our Rick glasses.

These glasses are one of the most versatile when it comes to the face shapes they work for, from square to heart-shaped to oval! The design is also an evergreen one that will never go out of style, no matter what your aesthetic or age is.

9. Dexter from Dexter’s Laboratory

Anyone who grew up in the 90s is more likely than not to recognise this kid genius. As the star of Dexter’s Laboratory, Dexter kept fans engrossed for years with his mad scientist antics. Along with his larger-than-life personality, the image of Dexter with his red hair, pointy glasses, white lab coat, and purple gloves has been seared into our memory.
With our Ken glasses, you will be able to unleash your geeky side and take over the world in style.

These are not your typical round frames. They are technically decagonal as they have 10 sides, and the tortoiseshell temples add more interest to an already unconventional design. If you have a larger-than-life personality like Dexter and you’re not afraid to show it, this is the pair for you.

10. Edna from The Incredibles

As the mastermind behind the superhero suits of The Incredibles, Edna Mode is the ultimate fashion designer who manages to put even the most powerful of heroes in their place with her brutal one-liners. Her style emulates that of many real-life designers, who tend to prefer an elegantly minimalist look.
Anna Wintour-esque bob aside, the other most recognisable part of Edna’s look are her round, wide-rimmed glasses which frame her usually unimpressed expressions.
If her characteristics and look resonate with you, our Potter glasses will help you channel Edna to a T.

The round, tortoiseshell frames which taper off at the sides will instantly put a high fashion spin on everything you wear. Perfect for helping you channel your inner Edna.

11. Nobita from Doraemon

When it comes to anime, one of the most popular and beloved characters is Nobita from Doraemon. The protagonist and constant companion of Doraemon may have his flaws, but his good-hearted and generous traits outshine them easily!
He has black hair and expressive black eyes which are framed by big round glasses, and they’ve all played a part in cementing Nobita’s status as one of the most recognisable animated characters of all time.
If you want spectacles that scream ‘Nobita’, our Jocose glasses are for you!

Mouqy’s round Jocose frames.

Although they may not seem like a perfect match for Nobita’s pair at first glance, they actually embody the spirit of his character in a few ways.
For one, the shape. They’re not Nobita glasses unless they are perfectly round. Secondly, the blue hues bring to mind Nobita’s friendship with Doraemon. Finally, the fun yet unexpected mix of blue and brown rims reflect the childlike wonder the show is known for.
