To celebrate the fact that Dan Harmon confirmed that the wheels for the Community movie are now in motion (even if it takes a few years to get here), we’d like to celebrate by ranking the best costumes from The Dean. Perhaps start recreating one of them now so you can wear it to the movie premiere in six years.

Serious Dean

Goatees mean serious business, at least that’s what The Dean thinks. Dean sports this look after realizing there are far too many shenanigans in the school. This look calls for clear-headed thinking, like using “experimental monkey gas” to get Annie’s boobs out of the ventilation system.

Dean’s Sister’s Uncle Sam Costume

Dean Pelton Uncle Sam


Before Dean Pelton was more confident in his costume obsession he was still saying he was just borrowing it from his sister. No matter what the truth may be, we all know Dean Pelton turned Uncle Sam into Daddy Sam.

The Deanvil

Dean Pelton Devil


The incarnation of The Dean appears in Shirley’s homemade horror story centered around all of her study group dying in the Apocalypse. This look says “I’m The Devil, but I like to have fun.” which is always how I’ve preferred to think of The Devil.

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga Dean


Lady Gaga Dean would’ve been one of the last things the study group saw before they died in a zombie mauling Halloween incident. This was an early look as to just how feminine The Dean could get for the right occasion.

Good News And Bad News Dean

Life gets a little too real for The Dean when he takes a moment to look inside himself, to find an empty man underneath a ridiculous costume. Not to mention, he had to go to the bank after this. 

Peanut Bar Dean

The Dean’s peanut bar rap is the stuff of absolute legend. Something comes over the dean when he reveals to the study group that their paychecks are delayed. This one joke was the subject of an entire episode of the Good One podcast by Vulture featuring Dan Harmon.
