I'll never forget when my best friend's dad shaved his beard for the first time. I'd known him since I was just a wee tot, so he was essentially a second father to me, and he always had a beard or some variation of facial hair.

So you can imagine my horror as a a five-year-old to see him completely beard and mustache-less for the first time in my life. I knew what was going on and I didn't let it show or anything, but it was still pretty jarring!

Fast forward 18 years, and the horror returns when stumbling upon Annie Erskine Imgur post from last year of 'Disney Dudes Without Beards.' Now, as an adult(ish) type, I'm not quite as taken aback as I was as a kid. Actually, this time around it's pretty funny, but it still doesn't make it any less weird to see! Check out the hairless fellas below:

Pretty weird, huh? Don't get me wrong, they all still look great, but I've always struggled with adjusting to change. Especially when it comes to Disney.

Which Disney man do you think looks better with a clean shaven face? Let me know in the comments section!
