The Top Ten

1 Patrick Star - Spongebob Squarepants Patrick Star - Spongebob Squarepants Patrick Star is a fictional character in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants. He is voiced by actor Bill Fagerbakke, who also voices numerous other characters on the show . Created and designed by marine biologist and cartoonist Stephen Hillenburg, the series creator, Patrick ...read more.

Sure he's dumb but that's what makes him funny!

I just finished watching an episode of spongebob where him and pat get rare cards and I actually looked up on google "the dumbest cartoon characters" and had to comment on pat. He is by far the dumbest char ever!

In the beginning of the show Patrick's stupidity is what made him charming and we got a good amount of classic lines from him, but since season five, it's really gone down hill. Patrick now is pretty one dimensional and there have been episodes where they use his stupidity to make him rude, get Gary almost killed (not kidding) and really unlikable.

Is this the Krusty Krab?
No, this is Patrick - DaWyteNight

2 Peter Griffin - Family Guy Peter Griffin - Family Guy Peter Griffin is the main protagonist and titular character of the American animated sitcom Family Guy.

Employer: So, Peter, where do you see yourself in five years?

Peter: (thinking) Don't say, "Doing your wife." Don't say, "Doing your wife." Don't say, "Doing your wife."

Peter: Doing your...(sees the employer's family picture) son?

"Well sir I may be a idiot but there is one thing I'm not sir and that sir is a idiot"-Peter griffin. - PotBellyPup

Lol I remember the in one episode Peter was on a plane he got up on the plane anD went to an emergency door and it said "Do not Open" and he opened it and everyone flew out.

Dumbest so far, my favorite...

3 Ed - Ed, Edd And Eddy Ed - Ed, Edd And Eddy Ed is one of the three protagonists in the Canadian-American animated comedy television series Ed, Edd n Eddy. He is the strongest and the least intelligent member of the Eds.

I choose Ed over Patrick simply because Ed, in my opinion, is more likable than Patrick, despite them basically holding the same idiocy. Now these days, Patrick is so dumb that it's not funny anymore, but rather more frustrating and annoying, while Ed still managed to be funny while being stupid, never once annoying me. Also, Patrick may have his touching dumb moments, but there are also many times where he is just a jerk (Valentine's episode, When he was crowned King), but Ed always cared for Edd and Eddy... in his own way Also... GO NERDS! He is a comic/video game lover! GO ED!

Dumbest, but funniest cartoon character I've ever seen

One of the best cartoon characters ever! He may be dumb, but he is a loyal friend and a good guy!

Ahahah IMBURRED TOAST

5 Billy - The Grim Adventures Of Billy And Mandy

I grew up with Bill and Mandy and Billy ALWAYS MADE ME LAUGH!... Granted Mandy was always and still is my favorite but Billy really knew how make me smile... DESTROY US ALL!

I hate that character from Billy and Mandy! He should be on the number one list because he's much more stupid than Patrick Star! Plus his nose is so huge he can snort the whole cocaine up his nose!

Honestly he is dumber than patrick

Billy deserves this guys

6 Ralph Wiggum - The Simpsons Ralph Wiggum - The Simpsons Ralph Wiggum is a side character in The Simpsons. He is the son of Chief Wiggum. Ralph is not very smart at all. He is voiced by Nancy Cartwright. Some episodes such as I Love Lisa and This Little Wiggy have him as a major character.

You know you're stupid when you one had a trope for incredibly stupid characters named after you. TVTropes.com has a trope called "The Ditz" for characters who are dumb, but for a short while, they also had a trope called "The Ralph Wiggum" for characters who take stupid to a whole new level. To qualify for that trope, you had sink bellow the average level of stupid, and only the dumbest of the dumb were put on this page (ex. Patrick Star). The fact that the trope was named after Ralph Wiggum and not Patrick Star or any of the other characters on this page is a testament to Ralph's extreme stupidity.

"I drink blue juice from under the sink"
"when I grow up, I want to be a catapillar"
"When I grow up, I want to be a triangle" - sam11855

Homer is only above because he's more popular! At least he can speak actual sentences and say things appropriate to the subject. (Usually)

I dink you're dog is stoopid - Ralph Wiggum

7 Cosmo - The Fairly Odd Parents

WHAT! He should be at the top. He doesn't even have a brain! He has jelly in his head! He is the definition of IDIOT! He gets everyone in trouble.

Cosmo:(after getting breast implants) I thought you said plastic surgery!
Timmy: (Laughs)
Cosmo: I'm keeping them.

Cosmo has to be the dumbest cartoon character ever existed... But that's what makes his funny.

Yes, he's dumb, but he's still funny! Well, not that much in the recent seasons. - TheFourthWorld

She is probably my favorite. She isn't really sharp but that's what makes her funny. To be honset, if I were to trust either Leni or Patrick, it's no contest. - TheCartoonManiac

She's mostly dumb about personal things (correct me if I'm wrong)

She is like 16 years old, and she’s still dumb. She’s still funny though. - Gabo147

Stimpy... A total classic example of stupidity... I really miss him and Ren especially when Ren would try to kill him for his stupidity which always ruined Ren's plans

So dumb, pretty sure his dumbness and his big nose inspired all a generation of idiot cartoon characters... His brain pop up through his hear when he bends over...

Loved this show, Stimpy was, and I quote "Such a stupid idiot! "

Stimpy below Dora? That is already dumber than Patrick. - 445956

This person is a FRAUD. Yup, that's right! How can you be someone's uncle and grandpa?! If I were president, I can immediately give him the death penalty. KISS HIS ASS GOODBYE!

Look at his name! Says it all

Uncle Grandpa is the dumbest man in the world, his voice gives me a headache

Ide say Bob would be the smartest of the family. The son should be the dumbest of the bunch.

Her voice is super irritating makes me want to strangle her. She is the only flaw in the show

33 Johnny Bravo Johnny Bravo

Lol I loved this cartoon when I was little.

He’s a pervert.

34 Peppa Pig Peppa Pig

Kids show character what did you expect

Peppa is not an cartoon character

35 Bolbi - Jimmy Neutron
36 Switchboard - Beverly Hills Teens
37 Dudley Puppy - T.U.F.F. Puppy Dudley Puppy - T.U.F.F. Puppy

That's so controversy what with him is, he is lower dumb

I hate him so much

He is not most annoyng

38 Inspector Gadget - Inspector Gadget Inspector Gadget - Inspector Gadget

Inspector Gadget never really solves any of the assignments he's sent on. It's always his niece Penny and dog Brain who save the day. Of course Gadget is oblivious to their presence. I remember one episode where Gadget was sent to stop a missile launch by Dr. Claw. He some how stumbles on the hideout but is only concerned with finding gas. Gadget also somehow stumbles on the missile but it does not register to Gadget as to what it is and he continues searching for gas. In the end it's Brain and Penny who save the day. Chief Quimby should be paying them and sending them on missions instead of Gadget

cool!

39 Lube - CatDog

I remember in the thanksgiving episode. Instead off cooking a turkey for dinner, Lube cooked a map of the country of Turkey instead. - MJfan119

This man is a dumb creature

I don't think he is dumb - jrodz

Die in hell you pervert

43 Tara Bell - Beverly Hills Teens
44 Pops - Regular Show

He has a brain but he probably never uses it.

He thinks lollipops are money

He had head injury as a young man.

Mordecai: your a terd
Rigby: no your a terd!
Pops: mordecai rigby stop! We can all be terds

45 Stumpy - Kaeloo

He's so dumb, he's even gotten himself killed and is only alive thanks to negative continuity.

In one episode, Mr. Cat tried to teach Stumpy how to scam people, so he set up an elaborate scam to con people out of money and brought Stumpy along with him to show him how it's done. Stumpy, despite knowing what Mr. Cat is doing, gives him some money.

He has the ability to make Kaeloo and Quack Quack look intelligent.

On the bright side, his idiocy doesn't just make him the dumbest character, but the funniest one too!

50 Chief Clancy Wiggum - The Simpsons

He is absolutely one of the dumbest characters on all of t.v, doing things like eating dougnots off of a gun and not even knowing what his jobs responsibilities are & yes he is MORE dumb and MORE obese than HOMER, he at least should be in the top 10 with his stupidity is on par with his son Ralph (Number 6) but at least Ralph is a child and suffered a fatal brain injury as a baby, but he has no excuses the stupidest character on all of t.v. Just imagine Springfield (Already shown to have worst crime in America) without Lou it would probably have a crime 8 times as high as the 2nd worst crime city. - jrodz

(from the Simpsons Movie)
Lenny: *on the phone*Hey Homer. You need to get down here. The health inspector just shut down, the donut place, and there giving away free doughnuts!
