The Top TenXW

1Homer Simpson

The dumbest person, but that's why we love him - roblist

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 - izka1247

He's one of the best characters ever made.

2Bart Simpson

I like him, because he's like me! Also I like Otto because he likes heavy metal - Trivium

Bart is the coolest he's my favorite character! - foxrocks

Let's be real here: nobody watches the show because of Marge, Lisa, or Maggie. The Simpsons is great because of Bart and Homer. I can still remember a time when "Don't have a Cow" was the most popular phrase in pop culture. Will he ever be as popular as he was in 1991? No, but that won't stop him from telling you to "eat my shorts! "

Sorry, but I just can't stand this brat. I don't hate on people with different opinions, please don't hate on me.

3Ralph Wiggum

I love ralph wiggum! He was kinda boring in the first 3 seasons but he got funnier over the years

ralph is great. he's really funny. he's stupid but that's why I love him.

Ralph wiggum is a legend come on people vote ralph

My first episode I ever watched featured the "Choo Choo Choose You" valentine. I am now attached to Ralph and sort of hate Lisa.

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.

He is the best

5Maggie 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 like the smartest one there and shes a gangsta! - giebler

maggie is so cute and the smartes with lisa - hermione_granger

The definition of a complete Beast!

6Lisa 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.

Lisa is the worst

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. - ilovekelly75

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

I probably relate most to Moe than to any character in the show, but all of Hank Azaria's characters are amongst the best.

8Nedward 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. - Undertaker15-0

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.

Ned Flanders is one of those "lawful good" characters who you don't see much in the Simpsons.

9Marge Simpson

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".

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!

I guess it's because I like her hair

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. - TheHotDogs

Less offensive than Willie, but still racist. Still, I LOVE Apu.

13Robert Underdunk Terwilliger aka Sideshow Bob

Every Episode with Sideshow Bob is a good one!

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

Sideshow Bob is so awesome! His outrageously smart but unsuccessful plans to try to kill Bart, his ingeniousness fights with Lisa, and his bad luck (especially with garden rakes) is humorous to everyone who likes a psychopathic ingenious killer as a side character. I wish the creators of The Simpsons added more episodes with him, maybe even in season 24 or 25. I love those episodes, and watched each one at LEAST 4 times!

A well developed, unbelievably intelligent, sophisticated, clever, and witty character. I honestly thought he'd be much higher on the list, as he is such an interesting and unique character.

love abes senile and demented quotes! "You never know what your capable of. I never thought I could shoot down a German plane. But last year, I proved myself wrong. " -Who Shot Mr. Burns Pt. 2 - sammoth

Really funny reminds me of my grandpa

I'm pretty sure a thousand is a number

16Comic Book Guy

Skinners Mother: The sun is so beutifull (something like that)

Comic Book Guy: Could it BE anymore OR-ANGE! - arabhomie68

I seriously just laugh whenever he comes on screen! He's so iconic and hilarious, how can he not be number one on here?!

I wish there was more of him! - clerkatron

He's so funny, and also a ton like me because basically all I ever do is sit on my computer.

17Milhouse Van Houten

He always makes me laugh! - SammyD

Milhouse: I can't go to Juvie! They use guys like me as currency!

Made his own silent cameo appearance in The Lego Movie. Milhouse has the same yellow skin tone as the Lego minifigures in the film (except for Michelangelo and Morgan Freeman's character). - playstationfan66

Milhouse is just such a Milhouse!
