Sheldon Cooper shirts are just cool, no matter how you slice it! Maybe I'm just nerdy but I love the t-shirts he wears!
No matter what's happening in my life on Thursday nights, rest assured I'm going to carve out enough time to watch The Big Bang Theory. I absolutely adore all the well-developed characters, but my favorite has to be Sheldon Cooper, played by Jim Parsons. In fact, in my opinion, it is he who makes the show.
My husband, bless him, is somewhat of a nerd, so it's fitting he's the one that got me hooked on the show. He actually gets mad when the show is a re-run. We enjoy pretty much laughing together for a solid half an hour every week. Laughter is good medicine, right?
Sheldon Cooper Shirts: As Seen on The Big Bang Theory

Not only do I love the Sheldon Cooper T-Shirts he wears in the show, but I love the official Big Bang Theory Sheldon Cooper shirts! I recently discovered you can actually purchase many of Sheldon's shirts on Amazon and I was thrilled. Thrilled because it was the perfect gift to give to my husband. And yes, he does wear the shirts I got him. And yes, he does get quite a few comments about them! He does however occasionally break Sheldon's rule of ALWAYS wearing a long sleeve t-shirt underneath...
Have you ever heard the "Soft Kitty, Warm Kitty" song Sheldon's mom used to sing to him? One of my favorite episodes is when he's sick and he teaches Penny to sing the song to him. Anyway, I'm so happy to learn there's now a shirt in honor of this fantastic little ditty!
At the top of the list is the Robot Evolution T-Shirt, sooo Sheldon, isn't it? It's available in black, blue or red. This was the shirt he wore on Season I, Episode 13, called "The Bat Jar Conjecture" as well as on Seasons 2 and 4.
In keeping with the robot theme, we have the Manbot t-shirt Sheldon has worn a total of 9 times on the show. He wore it on one of my very favorite episodes, in Season 2, "The Bad Fish Paradigm".
Ever see the episode called the "Wheaton Recurrence" where Sheldon meets his long time arch enemy Wil Wheaton? A fierce bowling competition ensues, and Sheldon names his team "The Wesley Crushers", named after the Star Trek character Wil Wheaton played. A fun little play on words, and a cool t-shirt, to boot.
Sheldon can be seen wearing his Flash Lightning Bolt shirt in season three's "The Staircase Implementation". Amazon has the shirt, but in red. The shirt is also glow-in-the-dark!

Sheldon's Friendship Algorithm
Some of the best moments on The Big Bang Theory have been captured on Sheldon Cooper shirts. Probably one of the funniest scenes is Sheldon's "light bulb moment" where he thinks he's isolated a friendship algorithm and has captured the whole thing on a flow chart. Poor Sheldon has some difficulty making friends, is just a little challenged in the social skills department.
No doubt "bazinga" is Sheldon's most infamous phrase, introduced in the "Monopolar Expedition" episode of season two. This Sheldon-created interjection has made its way into popular vernacular, particularly amongst fans, but also as a common phrase for saying "just kidding" or "gotcha!"
Sheldon: "Leonard, you may be right. It appears Penny secretly wants you in her life in a very intimate and carnal fashion."
Leonard: "You really think so?"
Sheldon: "Of course not. Even in my sleep-deprived state I've managed to pull off one of my classic pranks. Bazinga!"
So, it should be no surprise there is a variety of "Bazinga" paraphernalia on the market, particularly the baginga t-shirt.
Knock, Knock, Knockin' on Penny's Door
If you regularly watch the show, you'll know Sheldon has this very annoying habit of knocking on Penny's door... in a very obnoxious and demanding manner, to boot. See for yourself in the video on the right. Anyway, I was so happy to find the "Three Knocks Penny" Sheldon shirt on Amazon. It only comes in the blue.
Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock!
Did you know this rock, paper, scissors variation was NOT created by the producers of The Big Bang Theory, but rather a man by the name of Sam Kass. He concluded the original version has some probability flaws, one of them being the frequency of ties. It also satisfies the Law of Fives. Anyway, leave it to the geeky characters in The Big Bang Theory to popularize this improved version! This Sheldon Cooper shirt is a topseller.

Buy Sheldon's 73 Shirt HERE!
Buy Sheldon's 73 shirt HERE! It IS his favorite number after all... Why? Because:
- Sheldon: What is…… the best number? And by the way, there is only one correct answer.
- Raj: Five million, three-hundred eighteen thousand, and eight?!
- Sheldon: The best number is seventy-three! You’re Probably wondering why?
- Howard: No no
- Leonard: Not really
- Sheldon: 73 is the 21st prime number. Its mirror 37 is the 12th and its mirror 21 is the product of multiplying, hold on to your hats, 7 and 3. In binary, 73 is a palindrome, 1, 0, 0 1, 0, 0, 1 which backwards is 1, 0, 0 1, 0, 0, 1
- Raj: Just for the record, when you enter five million, three-hundred eighteen thousand, and eight in calculator, upside down it spells “BOOBIES”
Sheldon Cooper shirts continue to come out everyday. I'm keeping my eye out for new Sheldon Cooper t-shirts for you, don't worry!

Sheldon: Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and as it always has, rock crushes scissors.
Love love love the big bang theory...
