Top 10 T-Shirts from TV Shows
Picked & Written by that man ‘Pepsi Lew’ aka Lewis Hanson @PepsiLew22 (Bearhug Team Member)
As you can probably tell, we here at Bearhug love us a good t-shirt, and we love us a good tv series to binge on too. But you know what you really love? A good quality tee inside a good quality show. But what are the best t-shirts ever featured in the world of television? Well, we’re here to answer that for you. Here (in no particular order) are the Top 10 T-Shirts from TV Shows.
I Met Li’l Sebastian – Parks and Recreation
Li’l Sebastian – he was an animal, a legend, a friend. But while he was alive, and if you were lucky enough to meet this Indiana legend, you got to own this beautiful shirt. Ben Wyatt may not agree, but we love the retro font and slight fade on the tee’s graphic; it couples well with the whole feel of Pawnee, out-dated yet charming. He may have been li’l, but his impact on us all was anything but.
Magna – It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Even though it looks like a hair metal band logo straight out of the 80s, it turns out that Magna is actually a now defunct obscure cigarette brand. But I don’t think Charlie Kelly knows that, or even cares. Regardless, we still think it looks awesome.

Castroville Artichoke Festival – Stranger Things
Just like everyone else that watched the amazing Stranger Things, we here at Bearhug instantly fell in love with Dustin, so much so that Luke couldn’t help but draw his favourite character straight away. Just like everything about the hit show, Dustin’s style is quintessentially 80s, and we absolutely love it. An artichoke festival may not sound all too exciting, but at least Dustin got a lovely shirt out of it.
A Dustin t-shirt? Well, I guess there are ‘stranger things’ out there you can buy.

NWO – WCW Monday Nitro
Back in the late 90s, wrestling tees were all over the place. While we’ve got to crack open a cold one in respect to the classic Austin 3:16 shirt from WWF/E Monday Night Raw, the awesome NWO shirt, worn by the likes of Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall, and Kevin Nash, has to earn a place on this list. It was even worn recently by Kendall Jenner at a Michael Kors fashion show, proving that the simple, worn-out design is just too sweet, and we’re sure it will stay that way 4 life.
Girls – Friends
It may be simple, but you’ve got to love that retro baseball jersey style text coupled with the subtle crossed bats logo on the sleeve.
The girls both feature on our M.A.T.E.S tee.
Green Striped Tee – The Fresh Prince of Bel Air
Will Smith was known for his crazy fashion sense on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, but it’s this now iconic simple green striped t-shirt from the first ever episode that we associate the most with the show. It is straight out of bright early 90s fashion, and every time we see it, it just makes us want us to sing out, “NOW THIS IS A STORY ALL ABOUT HOW…”

Walking Dead – Science Dog
Even in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, young Carl Grimes still had chance to look cool with this strange yet awesome Science Dog ringer t shirt.

Lenny – Bull Shirt
Wow, this t-shirt is dy-no-mite. With that lovely retro font and 70s colour scheme, teenage Lenny clearly had style, and that’s no bull.
It may not be spelt out as blatantly as Lenny’s is, but here at Bearhug we have our very own Bull Shirt.
(Also available as a hoodie).
Mouse Rat – Parks and Recreation
When he wasn’t saving America as FBI agent Burt Macklin, or shining shoes, or falling down pits, or diagnosing people with “network connectivity problems”, Andy Dwyer was in a band, and when they finally managed to settle on a name, they made a pretty sweet looking band tee.

Beer – It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Here at Bearhug HQ, we love bears (obviously). We love deer. We love beer. So when Mac from It’s Always Sunny wore a t-shirt with a bear with deer antlers on called a Beer, of course we were going to love it! Mac has plenty of fantastic pun shirts, but obviously this has to be our favourite.
