The 15 Best Mustaches in TV History

Paul November 14, 2012 10

It’s Movember, and you know what that means, try to grow a mustache! I say “try” because that’s really all I can do, and it makes me very sad.

Fortunately, I can live vicariously through these fine gentleman. They have been rocking the best mustaches for years now, and prove that to be an iconic TV character, you need one. No exceptions.

Check out the full list below where the countdown starts:

    some suggestions: A TV Stache must be a TV Stache, not a movie actor that comes to TV (Selleck is okay, since his TV career pretty much predates his film career and we know him more as magnum PI than Mr. Baseball . . . That said, Burt Reynolds in Evening Shade does not qualify as he was a big movie guy first).
