Here are some intriguing pictures of a young Nick Offerman, best known for his role as Ron Swanson on the hit television show Parks and Recreation. When he was young, Offerman did not sport the signature mustache he dons today, so he may remind you of a skinless cat when you see these pictures.

He began his career in the early 1990s in Chicago after signing up to participate in community theater companies Steppenwolf, Goodman, and Wisdom Bridge. He mainly served as a set designer and used his woodworking skills to create props for the companies. During this time he became acquainted with another inspiring comedian and actress who was heavily involved within the Chicago theater arena, Amy Poehler, who would later be his co-star.

Offerman, who also has a very funny Instagram account, appeared in multiple television shows as a guest, but his major breakout role was with Parks and Recreation. His wife Megan Mullally frequently appeared on the show as well, playing the role of Ron Swanson’s ex-wife. Enjoy these photos of Nick Offerman as a young boy, and try not to have nightmares about seeing him without facial hair.
