Moved a bunch of examples that amounted to "[Character] has decent hygiene by modern standards." over here. The page was getting swamped in them.


  • "Ordeal", an issue of Hellblazer, showed Eve (as in "Adam and...") having clean-shaven legs at the dawn of time. (Then again, seeing as how she literally began her life as an adult, this could have been Hand Waved as God's doing.)



  • In medieval England, lice and other horrible parasites were common to the point of being inescapable. Despite this, the sexy, smooth-legged Maid Marian in The BBC's recent Robin Hood series looks like she's just walked out of a shampoo commercial. As do Arthur and Morgana in Merlin.
  • Little House on the Prairie was infamous for its 1970s male hairstyles in the 1870s/1880s, especially Michael Landon's perm. The real Pa had a thick beard, yet Landon is smartly clean-shaven.
