Homer Simpson
The dumbest person, but that's why we love him


Memorable moments of homer
Homer:Fugu me!
Homer: I am so smart I am so smart s-m-r-t I mean S-m-a-r-t
And the best, in my opinion
Marge: now homer, don't you eat this pie
Homer: okay, now pie I will go like this
(Makes chomping Noise)
Homer: and if you get eaten there's is nothing you can do about it
(makes chomping noise and bangs into the overhead heater)
Homer: DO'H!
Homer is the best. The funyest of all. Laugh out loud

4Charles Montgomery Monty Burns
I hope that when I'm a 104 years old, I'm just like him!
Mr. Burns is so funny! he is a great character, but he is more Adult humor character, but that's why like him!
Mr Burns has some of the funniest lines in the show's golden era. Easily the most entertaining peripheral character in the show and he often steals the show in whatever episode he's in.

5Lisa Simpson
This 8 year old cartoon character can be quite inspiring to young viewer's, thus being a Girl and of 8 years old, having an IQ of 159 having a love for reading musical arts and literature.
Lisa is a great role model even though she is a cartoon character her intelligence is bliss.
Lisa is the only voice of reason in the show and desperately tries to change the opinions of her ignorant and self minded townspeople. She loves her family despite their shortcomings, and has to suffer in a horrible public school.
An intelligent pre- teen that is one of the the hope and future of Springfield.

6Maggie Simpson
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MAGGIE! <3 shes a complete cutie and has saved homer so many times. She's so badass. I really expected her to be first. everything she does makes me smile.
maggie is so cute and the smartes with lisa


maggie is like the smartest one there and shes a gangsta!

7Moe Szyslak
One of the meanest person in Springfield with one of the biggest hearts!
He kind of reminds me of myself, in some ways.


James Jones from The Miami Heat looks like Moe, that's why I voted for him.

8Groundskeeper Willie
Best accent EVER! p. s. he'll kill you IN YOUR DREAMS!


HIlarious love the accent


I said 'make way for Willie', ya bloated gas bug!

9Nedward Ned Flanders
Flanders is an awesome addition character to the Simpsons, I mean you have Homer, who is just a joker, then smart Lisa, Trouble Maker Bart, Baby Maggie, Great Mother Marge, and all the other characters have their own special personality. Ned stands out a lot with his perfect, and positive attitude.


Flanders is brilliant. He sets up Homer for all his best lines AND he puts diddly at the end of everything. Plus he has a smokin' body.
Ned is nice to everybody and never gets any credit! He is funny too.

10Marge Simpson
I absuloutely lovee the noise marge makes when shes angry! Haha shes so funny and motherlike and sometimes a bit naughty! She is a main character and SHOULD be in the top ten!
She is incredible, sometimes is a good person but sometimes is a rough mother and her hair is simply the best thing.
In a few episodes she is so funny. In Milhouse doesn't live here anymore, she saies to Bart "Your be like an owl saying Milhouse who, Milhouse who, Milhouse who".

11Apu Nahasapeemapetilon
Everybody loves an Indian guy, THANK YOU! COME AGAIN!
Think of all the wonderful Apu quotes over the years. Vote for Pedro. I mean Apu. You know, I remember back in ninteen dickety two when I first thought of Apu. We had to say dickety...
He is one of the greatest Indian cartoon characters of all time. He deserves to be praised.

12Robert Underdunk Terwilliger aka Sideshow Bob
Every Episode with Sideshow Bob is a good one!
I think people see him as a murdering lunatic but ACTUALY he is probably the most sophisticated civilised nicest person in Springfeild! The only reason that he went completely insane was because of Bart! All he wanted was to not be tormented by Bart. He even went all the way to Italy to get away from Bart, but yet again... The Simpsons still followed him there and ruined everything for him. Then he got locked up in a mental institute, shot with a tranculilser dart, tasered, exc exc exc. How would YOU feel after all of that? I know I would want to kill Bart, so please vote for Bob!
This character is just awesome. He is so casually evil and sophisticated, which makes him all the more threatening. He looks, sounds and acts smexily, and I just love him

This guy is hilarious. He reminds me of Jerry Lewis


He's one of my favourite characters on the Simpsons, wish he'll appear more often. The annoyiest would be Lenny and Carl with Cookie Kwan. Not Lindsay Nagel.

26Lionel Hutz
You know your going to win when your lawyers in jail!

I Can't Believe it's a Law Firm!

27Seymore Skinner
Seymour is definitely the best. He always has a hilarious scene with chalmers And he always says "oh mercy! "
