Never Nude is the syndrome from which Tobias Fünke suffers from which renders him unable to be naked instead wearing tight jean cutoffs under his clothes. It is not recognized by the DSM-IV. Annual conferences are held for those affected.

Phillip Litt also suffers from this condition, and George Michael flirts with the idea.

Season OneEdit

  • Tobias is first seen wearing jean cutoffs in the shower in "Top Banana", and again in the following episode "Bringing Up Buster".
  • Lindsay rips Tobias' towel off in "Visiting Ours", the first acknowledgement of Tobias' condition.
  • The affliction is named and described in "In God We Trust". Tobias assumes George Michael is a Never Nude based on his refusal to take off the Adam outfit from the Living Classics Pageant, and tries to get him to accept himself for his affliction.
  • In "Storming the Castle" Tobias wears leather chaps with his cutoffs visible.
  • In "Marta Complex" Tobias is seen unpacking his cutoffs. He also auditions for the role of Frightened Inmate #2 and is horrified when he finds out the role will take place in the nude.
  • In "Beef Consommé" Tobias argues with Lindsay about his Never Nudity and how he will be unable to perform as Frightened Inmate #2. She helps him overcome his fear and he overcompensates by walking around naked.
