The Top Ten

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


Homer is the best!

2Bart Simpson
I like him, because he's like me! Also I like Otto because he likes heavy metal


Bart is the coolest he's my favorite character!


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! "

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
Best Moments
Ralph: I'm learnding!
Ralph: Mrs. Hoover I don't have a red crayon, I ate it
Ralph: Mrs. Hoover the floor is shaking!

I love thsi littel chubby guy!

4Lisa 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 simpson is really clever and smart and nice but is not the best so she should be 4th

5Charles 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 a power hungry rich and greedy man favorite thing about Mr. burns is when Maggie shoots him

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!


More comments about Maggie Simpson

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.
Moe's Tavern Moe speaking... hey guys do I have a B. O problem!? You sure do! Wait Ill get you Bart. laugh out loud
More comments about Moe Szyslak

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.


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.

9Robert 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
I am DISGUSTED that this man is not at LEAST in the top ten!


He is awesome, genius and crazy!

10Groundskeeper Willie

The Contenders

11Marge 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".

12Apu 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.

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.

Funniest character in the Simpsons by some distance
Bart:You're gay for moleman
Lisa: no You're gay for moleman
Bart: No You're gay for moleman

Happy birthday, Mr. Smithers.

55Drederick Tatum
I respect Homer Simpson. He's a good man. It's just that I'm gonna make orphans of his children. "and his wife? " she'll die of grief. L O L drederick always has something to say.
