      Chuck Norris’ stache is so tough it couldn’t be photo-shopped off.

    Groucho looks like Bob Sagget with no stache.

      Haha. I absolutely agree. For a second I thought it was Saget.

      Great post!

      Thought the same thing. Wonder if they’re related through some distant relative or something.

    Interesting and funny list. I almost wouldn’t recognize Hitler without his mustache. If you take out his forehead and hairline as well, I think you could trick some people. Nobody in history has ruined a fashion style more than Hitler and his thin stash.

      He didn’t ruin it. He actually had a different mustache during WWI, but when his friend was killed, he changed it to the one his friend had.

    all of the iconic people on this list, and i didn’t think chuck norris would have been on this list because it just isn’t that full and with him it’s the full face of hair that made him intimidating….ron jeremy would have been a ecent choice…cuz who doesn’t know by now who ron jeremy is..but ned flanders as number one???..completely unnecessary and should have never even been in the thought process as einstein and hitler…completely ruined this list..as much of a gamer as i am…i wasn’t happy that mario was on here either…should have stuck to real people

    Ever wonder how Rudyard Kipling, Mark Twain and Friedrich Nietzsche would look without ‘staches?

    Che Guevara was not Cuban, he was from Argentina

      not to mention that he was a douche that executed families that didn’t agree with him – kids, grandparents, the works. Idolizing this guy is almost the same as idolizing Pol Pot

    You take the mustache away from Chaplin, put him in a regular suit and he looks an awful lot like Harold Lloyd – the one contemporary who was arguably his equal and perhaps the better comedian so Charlie needed the stache as a symbol of difference.

    My grandfather was a friend of My Lloyd and said it was a shame he lost interest in the film industry and had no interest in preserving his heritage while Mr Chaplain on the other hand made sure his movies were saved so the people of their children’s and grandchildren’s day know all about the Lilttle Tramp but not Harold Lloyd and what is not preserved is the fact of the disdain in which Chaplain was held by his contemporaries for his escapades with little girls – he was a fine artist but let himself go wild too often. The Communism was an affectation held by quite a few Hollywood elites who didn’t know any better so not a big deal

      I disagree, anyone with a mild interest in silent film knows who Harold Lloyd is. & personally (being a silent film fan) I believe Chaplin’s biggest rival would be Buster Keaton.
      I suppose there is a slight resemblance, but you’re forgetting that although Chaplin had the mustache, Lloyd had the glasses.
      & you sound rather angry that Chaplin preserved his films. I find the films hilarious and heartwarming and am glad that I can watch many of them. Although I do agree that it’s disappointing that Lloyd’s films are a little harder to find.

    How did you miss Stalin in a list of ‘staches? Was it simply because he never didn’t have one, even in his childhood, and thus, you couldn’t find a picture?

    I am not a huge fan of men with moustaches (a goatee is a different story) Tom Selleck looks great either way and so does Burt Reynolds. I think in both their cases, they don’t need moustaches but it gives them character. Hitler isn’t bad looking and would be an average looking joe without the moustache. One thing is for certain, even a thin moustache can change someone’s appearance.

    Ladies you are missing out MEN WITH MUSTACHES ARE HOTTTT!!!!
    Tom Selleck, Omar Sharif, Burt Reynolds, and even though they aren’t real, Mario and Luigi and Ned Flanders are all super Sexy. Mustaches are manly. Clean-shaven is not!

    Guevara didn’t have cuban roots, nor his stache. He was the worst mass murderer ever born in my country: Argentina. Have you read his books? he HATED black people with a passion, was a socialist just like Hitler, but he didn’t work behind the scenes like the nazi bastard did, he shot gagged innocent people himself. Read his diaries, please, you’ll find that he found extreme pleasure in killing, and bashing and beating his peruvian wife because of her native american descent and her ugly looks. A charming man…

    I think Hitler could have gone into his bunker, shaved his mustache, and walked right on by the Allied forces unnoticed.

    To be honest Burt Reynolds looks pretty good without his mustache, but it also looks amazing on him.

    Che was a sophist, at best, and a psycho revolutionary…period. I bet he enjoyed some fine rum, cigars and watches living off the backs of his people, like his man of the people boss and coconspirator, Fidel. That’s not to say the previous government was ok, but why did the people deserve what came next?

    Hitler’s mustache had nothing to do with anything, and many others at that time had it too, it’s that way so one could have a mustache and wear a gas mask. And Charlie Chaplin’s wasn’t even real. lol
