Eric Cartman is the most controversial character here, Bart Simpson isn't controversial AT ALL, Dora the Explorer isn't controversial either, Do you even know the definition of controversial, Cartman has been a second Hitler in one episode, That's the most controversial I can think off...

For all a y'all who think bart is badder then cart man watch the season finale that's says family guy has dolphins make up the plot line and cartman meets bart and he's like whats the worse thing you've ever done and brats like one time I sling shotted the teacher and cart man said all this stuff, I don't remember it all but one was ending a whole race of lobsters an then at the end bart is just like dude and he runs away or something

I have to vote Eric because he is one of the most controversial characters yet on of the funniest characters

He even tried to make a second holocaust.
