The Top TenXW

1Homer SimpsonHomer Jay Simpson is the protagonist of the American animated television series The Simpsons as the patriarch of the eponymous family.

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!

He is so stupid but funny! Like that one time the power plant caught on fire and he just fell asleep! And that one time he fell down that canyon When he got hurt he got picked up by a helicopter then they tied him to the helicopter then he fell off into the canyon but Lisa makes him not funny I hate Lisa So much she thinks she knows Everything.

He is fat, stupid, selfish, drunk and doesn't understand anything. Which I guess is why people love him, because he's so easily hateable that he's hilarious. And if that doesn't make sense then your wig doesn't either. He's an absolute dolt, but if its what floats your boat (and it totally does) then I completely understand why you find him funny.

2Bart SimpsonBart is the oldest child in The Simpsons. He was created by Matt Greoning. His hobbies are pranking people including Lisa Simpson and Homer 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! "

He is very funny in a different way then homer

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.

If Lisa marge and Maggie were not in the Simpsons it would be so funny

5Maggie Simpson

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

maggie is so cute and the smartes with lisa - hermione_granger

Maggie really is the best character. Its amazing how they pull it off with her speaking so few words. I like how shes all cute and a baby but really she is the most twisted character.

Maggie is just cute in general

6Lisa SimpsonLisa Marie Simpson is a fictional character in the animated television series The Simpsons. She is the middle child and most intelligent of the Simpson family.

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.

World could have everyone as Lisa, the world could be peaceful.

7Nedward 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

Ned is my hero. Seriously, He Always remains happy no matter what the weather, He is always being nice to everyone even when they do bad things on him. He is the best neighborino anyone could ever ask for. Even Homer said himself once, "If the world was full of people like Ned Flanders, there would be no need for Heaven because Heaven would be right here on Earth". He is a perfect example of how a Christian should behave & live there life. He's a great guy, and the world would be a better place if there were more Ned's around.

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.

Best side character

8Moe 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.

Funny personality.

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".

Marge is so funny because she is not meant to be. She says things that are so subtle that they are funny. Like when she says "get back hunky cat" or sings the hilarious song to bart about how to save money "put it in your cap" she should be number 1!

I guess it's because I like her hair

10Groundskeeper Willie

Best accent EVER! p. s. he'll kill you IN YOUR DREAMS! - fireinside96

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

Brothers and sisters are natural enemies,
Like Englishmen and Scots,
Or Welshmen and Scots,
Or Japanese and Scots,
Or Scots and other Scots,
Damn Scots, they ruined Scotland!

12Robert 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!

I like Sideshow Mel better, but his presence is definitely good something - jrodz

13Abraham Abe J. Simpson

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

14Krusty the Clown

I love krusty he's so funny but not how he's supposed be on a children's show. People put a lot of clips that they say is the best of krusty but I think almost every clips deserves to be on there

Haw-Haw! Laugh out loud he's hilarious! He is not smart, he ain't pretty, but he should be an comedian!

Nelson is the best secondary kid on the whole show
