Top 10 Worst Simpsons Characters
The Top Ten
What used to be one of the most likeable characters has slowly evolved season by season into the most hated. Newer seasons involve Lisa taking the moral high ground on nearly every topic, and criticises everyone that doesn't share her view. In older seasons, Lisa wasn't the person to make funny remarks, but she certainly knew how to make a scene its funniest. Her insight concluded episodes in the best possible way and had a huge impact on the also lost heart-warming scenes; her performances left you in tears. Now, Lisa is a boring character with most episodes centred towards her, and even some times having whole episodes dedicated to her on boring issues. Although Lisa is a family member of the Simpsons, she isn't the centre of the family, and because of this focus she has turned into the character that nobody likes.
Lisa actually used to be a likeable character, although not too many peoples favorite. She used to be a voice of reason and pretty much the only logical one most of the time. The writers made her so awfully annoying by having her be so smug and confident of her "moral superiority", intellect, faith (or lack of) and ideas, believing that anyone else is wrong. Probably one of the worst offenses of this is in "Lisa the Vegetarian" when she first becomes one. There's nothing wrong with making her a vegetarian, the problem is she instantly became too preachy. She decides to ruin a barbecue hosted by the family just for serving meat. Another example is in "Lisa the Skeptic". Marge tells her that she believes in angels which prompts Lisa to say that she thought Marge was an intelligent person, which insinuates that by Marge believing in angels she is stupid. - FirearmsKill
Lisa is like the "Marsha Brady" of her family, the fact that she's WAY to perfect to be believable, always makes me feel sorry for Bart. Lisa comes off as annoying how she's never in trouble, never gets any bad grades, and always does everything perfect, traits like that just feel WAY to perfect for a kid like her, plus she never fits in with comedy, I can't remember her saying ONE thing that made me laugh.
She's so bland and its extremely boring when she's the main character especially in later seasonsV 120 Comments
She ruins everything fun that the rest of the family does. She destroyed the burlesque house, the fighting sport thing (forget the name), itchy&scratchy all because SHE didn't like it. She thinks that nobody should be able to enjoy anything that she doesn't enjoy. She barely does anything funny, actually, she makes the show LESS funny.
And that episode where she didn't liked Homer doing piracy and made the most stupid thing ever made in the show by reimbursing the money of the pirate movie to Hollywood, and causing Homer to go to Jail. I never hated her more than in that moment.
Ugh. I hate Marge for also that she always nags Homer about everything, but when she directly influences him, he gets into trouble.
When it was the Tax Day and Homer forgot to do the tax returns, she mentions that she put the tax forms on top of Homer's to-do pile a month ago. Like, was Homer ever going to look at this stupid pile? And Homer has a tendency to always do things the very wrong way, and if she is basically in charge of the household finances, why couldn't she do the taxes herself?
Then the one when Homer got into a fight with the garbagemen. And she wrote an apology letter and signed it in Homer's name! As Homer said, she signed away his dignity, and it set him off on a crazy rampage, which ultimately resulted in the destruction of Springfield. If she was going to do something like this, at least she could have kept her mouth shut on what she did, let Homer think he beat the city hall. But no. Darn.
As an atheist, I really hate when Marge forces her narrow-minded, annoying religious views on her family.
When Homer is sleeping, she still takes it upon herself to force Homer to get up for church EVEN when it's too cold outside "It's church, you have to go". And then, when Homer rips his pants, she groans when Homer opts to stay home, when yet it is really cold outside, and also the church's furnace isn't working.
Then, she refuses to accept Homer's arguments for giving up church - like, "what's the point of going to some building every Sunday", and praying for the God to show Homer "the error of his ways", when the God tells Homer that he has a point.
Then, when Bart asks Marge why they have to go to church when Homer gets to stay home, she just dodges the question and claims that "she has a responsibility to raise the kids right, and that unless Homer changes his ways, she'll have to tell them that he's wicked". And tells ...more
She sees herself as the most moral and forward thinking person in springfield and yet constantly shows a naive and dangerous level of misogyny, homophobia and general closed-mindedness; all coupled with a stubborn unwillingness to let herself be educated and a need to correct anyone who expresses a liberal view. Homer would deserve better if he attended anger management.V 78 Comments
Either of Marge's sisters deserve this title! They exist solely to bring misery to others, though their main target is Homer (not that he doesn't deserve it from time to time, but I can't enjoy it, they're such festering piles of hate). - MortalAnonymous
Part of liking the Simpsons is hating Patty and Selma!
Patty and Selma exist to be rude and spread hate. Why hate on Lisa when she does nice kind things even for Bart sometimes. I can't remember them doing anything nice for Homer and when I think they did in another episode they went back to being cruel again. Constantly teasing Marge about Homer if you removed them from the show what would the effect be? No effect what so ever.
She and Selma tried to make a tombstone for homerV 20 Comments
So mean and so boring. Really should of died instead of Maude Flanders.
She is actually really annoying and disruptive
Rude to Marge. A jerk. Useless character. Come on Maude was sometimes mean to Marge but most of the time she was nice! Helen Has NEVER been nice to Marge she deserves her hate!.
I'm surprised Jessica (Helen's daughter from Bart's Girlfriend) hasn't snapped and killed her yet.V 16 Comments
Rude to Homer but maybe because she's under the influence of Patty? All Selma wants to do is get married and have a normal life, for that I can't hate her.
Why are the Flanders on this list? - attarj
Selma is not bad! She just wants to get married and have a normal life
Take Selma off! All she wants is to get married and have a normal life, unlike Patty who just exists to be rude.V 3 Comments
Martin Is a Little Stuck-Up Snob, He Only Cares About Himself and His Grades
Lisa should not be first. She's a bit boring, but is good when she's around Bart and Sideshow Bob.
He is just so lame boring and annoying
Maybe they should've done another IQ test and sent him to that intelligent kids school, that Bart blew up in a science class.V 13 Comments
He is quite annoying and he fakes being poor and sad to get advantages like when he hustled Lisa or lived with Marge and got a good house I just don't like him - thomaszhu4
I like Gil. He's a funny character.
He's alright but he's a poor man's Lionel Hutz
Gil is alright, not as bad as millhouse that's for sureV 2 Comments
not a very cute baby with that unibrow and so rude to maggie simpson!
Oh yeah that baby who is never in the show, EVER, Anyway why is Ned, Marge and Lisa on this list? They are all awesome.
The baby is so creepy and stupid. Why did they create such a pointless character?
Because he's totally in all the episodes and constantly antagonizing everyone. In case you can't tell I was being sarcastic - ralphie
Fists in the intro, Kills butterflies, And SucksV 13 Comments
This guy should be number 1. He is an annoying creepy jerk who ruins everything. He is not even a big part of the show. He should be killed off.
Artie is very filthy and arrogant. Marge made the right devision to take Homer as man.
Don't tell about my "busy fingers"
This guy always makes me angry.
But a few days ago I watched the episode where Artie spent the weekend with Marge. Homer Saw them while artie fored marge to kiss and homer worked west springfield an-that's it. All I'm gonna say is worst character ever
He has an annoying voice and he ruins everything. They need to kill him off!
The worst stereotype of a lawyer I have ever seen. Hopefully a real lawyer will sue him out of the show. Oh and if you want to hear someone who is a sue happy, I recommend weird Al's I'll sue ya
He is so rude to everyone and his voice is so annoying they he needs to be killed off.
He is so annoying! He ruins every episode he is in.V 8 Comments
He is not seen verey much so you can't really say but by the way maggie is not the worst characterV 1 Comment
Brats. Brats to the core. They only liked Lisa cause she had a pool in one episode. Typical spoilt brat cliche!
Snotty and shallow is more like it.
Sometimes they can be funny but they're jerks
The 2nd (Terri) and 10th (Sherri) worst characters in my humble opinion.V 6 Comments
She's really rude to Marge in one episode. She's a terrible mother and character who serves no point and is useless she only exists for cheap jokes by Milhouse and Dad
The worst mother and wife ever in the show.
I want to punch her. What did Kirk ever do to her
Screw her, her life, and the reason she should be in the SimpsonsV 5 Comments
Is my least favourite character ever on the Simpsons.
Sometimes I want to punch him he is so annoying!
Bart's right! Skinner is a wiener! - GoatworldsV 2 Comments
This kid is annoying and is constantly spewing nonsense at better characters. There are so many more deserving characters that fans don't seem to like, Sideshow Mel for example.
He has one of the most annoying voices in the world. I think that Bart should be friends with someone else.
I can't stand Millhouse, his voice is so irritating and annoying, it drives me crazy. He's definitely in my opinion the worst character. The other character I hate who should be on the top 10 is the Bumblebee man! He's not shown on all that much. But he's just such a stupid and pointless character he gets on my nerves!
He's a coward who exists to help Bart, love Lisa and serve as a servant to Bart if you removed him sure a couple things might not work but would anything really be effected?V 17 Comments
He doesn't have much character development other than being good which kinda makes him a tacky Gary Stu.
I don't get what is wrong with him. If any one ned Flanders. Same with rod
The only funny thing about him was when he was scared by a moth
The Flanders kids need a slap in the face each.V 5 Comments
I'm surprised nobody has made any homophobic comments. - DapperPickle
He loves mr burns but never tells him or does anything about it so he's useless
I am waiting to see him eradicate burns from existence
Hates and loves all the employesV 6 Comments
What's wrong with hans moleman all his purpose is is getting tortured, or is that literally the reason you hate him
Poor fella, he's the guy you ought to feel sorry for.V 3 Comments
Ned was funny, but now he is so Christian-extremist that I feel sorry for his kids (as stupid and annoying as they may be) and he is homophobic.
He was funny in the first 12 seasons, but he's been unnecessary to the show lately.
I'm okay with him being Christian I'm a Christian myself but Ned Flanders acts like everything else is evil. If an Atheist were to move into the neighborhood Ned Flanders would hat him/her. God wouldn't want that. - HeavyDonkeyKong
Overtime the simpsons has become lame; the plots are stale, the characters are overplayed. Eg Ned Flanders, who used to be my favourite character has morphed from a funny cheerful optimist into an irritating spiteful annoyance who shuns the opinion of anyone other than him. I'm a Christian and an optimist but even I think that he goes too far. Not having respect for others is not what god wantsV 22 Comments
She's a person who thinks that's she's tougher than anyone. It's annoying.
She is such a jerk to her own son. She will never admit that she is old
She's a jerk to EVERYONE not just SkinnerV 2 Comments
