Welcome back to part two of SMK disguises. Thank you for your patience . Your reward? Lee in uniform and disguise. Grab your helmets and smelling salts as we explore Scarecrow pretending not to be Lee Stetson. And Lee Stetson pretending not to be Scarecrow. And all combinations and permutations thereof (Don’t panic, I won’t mention probability again ).
Lee’s first disguise came early on: as a pirate waiter in Moby Docks in The First Time. He is possibly the only man (fictitious or otherwise) who can actually this carry this off without looking completely ridiculous. Look at those dimples .
However, this isn’t Lee best look. Thank goodness for the many Lee in a tux moments which block this unusual, yet strangely fetching Lee moment.
Edited to add: KC has alerted me to the fact that I missed Lee’s first disguise of the series: the non-pirate waiter in The First Time:
This is for those fans who like the tousled Lee, complete with ripped clothing:
Next, in Service Above and Beyond, is Lee as the chauffeur of Victoria Greenwich (“You look fabulous”).
And then angry chauffeur Lee rescues Amanda
Actually, he looks better in this (less than flattering) disguise than when he removes those disguise layers: Learjet and both Minijets were horrified by this nonsemble hiding sneakily under the mystery hoodie and towel cravat.
As if things couldn’t get any worse, we have Lee posing as Dan, I mean Dean. For their visit to the scary pay-by-the-hour style motel, Lee disguises himself in Dean’s fishing outfit (“I hate plaid. I look like the front seat of a DeSoto”). Yup, I don’t blame you for looking nauseated, Lee. I think it’s worse than Dotty’s plaid horror in The Wrong Way Home.
One of Lee’s “charms” is his clean-cut, shaven look. I know there’re a couple of Magnum PI moustache fans in JWWM-land. I’m not naming any names, but this is for you, KC …
During my “research” I discovered this post: The 35 Manliest Mustaches of All Time and suddenly Tom Selleck’s moustache started looking really appealing in comparison.
Moving on, I’ve established that I’m not a fan of facial hair on a man. So, IMHO, the busker in Trafalgar Square with beard isn’t Lee’s best facial moment (To Catch a Mongoose). The sighting of Lee in jeans doesn’t even make up for it. The guitar’s in the way anyway . (Yes, Learjet can inhabit the gutter too).
Next up, we have the rather, um, inappropriate sight of Lee as a priest in Munich (The Times They Are A Changin’). Best looking priest I’ve ever seen….and quite the flirt.
We also see Lee as a security guard (Charity Begins at Home and Burn Out) – note “wet Lee” to brighten up this rather dull collection of photos – more of these damp moments in a future post.
Inexplicably, I’m quite fond of Cabbie Lee (Spiderweb) .
Now, as a special treat, I’m going to let you have a look at Lee-as-a-spy (also in Spiderweb).
Lee as Emily-the-rich-old-lady’s personal assistant, Lee as fellow homeless person (The Three Faces of Emily)

That’s all for the SMK disguises. Does Lee look fetching or off-putting? What do you think? Until we explore Francine’s Fashion Faux Pas, it’s goodbye from Learjet!
