Season 1

In this multi-lens series, I'll be presenting you with a chronological list of each and every t-shirt worn by the character Sheldon Cooper on CBS's hit TV show, The Big Bang Theory.

Being a nerd at heart (and mind, body, and soul) I may not be the most fashionable homo sapien to ever graze the fields of this great rock called earth; but I know a snappy dresser when I see one, and Dr. Sheldon Cooper (played by Jim Parsons) is about as snappy as snap gets. And now with this list of t-shirts worn by the king of geeks, you can be snappy too!

So whether you're lounging around at home with your favorite video game or out making world changing discoveries in theoretical physics, these shirts, which elegantly blend together nostalgia, science and all-around nerdome, are sure to make you the envy of all your friends (whether they're real or imaginary).

I've kept this very simple. For each shirt I will include a photo, a brief outline of a scene in which it appears (per episode), and, if available, a link to where you can purchase these fine items. Enjoy!

      We love Sheldon since he's often much like our daughter who has autism - anxiety and ODD. I wondered where his shirts came from.

      My boyfriend said he wanted a t-shirt Sheldon was wearing, and I wanted to get it for his birthday in February. I had no idea how to find the t-shirt Sheldon was wearing because I didn't know the name of the video game that was on it and I couldn't remember what episode it was in. I have searched through too many sites that didn't help me, until this one. It's the astrosmash t-shirt. The website you listed is out of stock, but at least I can begin my search knowing what I'm looking for now. This is so awesome! Thank you so much! I "liked" this and put a post on my Facebook page as well. Keep up the great work! Thanks again!
