Dumbest Cartoon Characters


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!

A big, pink, fat, idiot!

He has always been an idiot.

Patrick is dumb pink starfish who lives under a rock who loves ice cream and burgers I'll have uhhh

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.

He's just dum - Patrick star

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

Peter does the opposite of everything he is told, if a door says push, he will spend hours pulling it and then will give up - YOSHIA2121

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.

Ed might be dumb but he is a good character and my favorite in ed edd n eddy becuse he is strong and hunky

He has a brain, no bigger than a small apple.

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!

He's so hilarious even though he's dumb.

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

He cannot even function properly

"Ah I have 3 kids and no money. Why can't I have no kids and 3 money? " -Homer Simpson

What is mind? It doesn't matter. What is matter? Never mind - Homer Simpson

Idiotic, but successful.

5 Billy - The Grim Adventures Of Billy And Mandy

Billy deserves this guys

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

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.

He needs to be right behind patrick

Ralph: Hi one time I picked my nose so hard it was bleeding! Ha! Ha! - Cuppyboi751

Stop treating him bad, he's clearly mentally off.

7 Cosmo - The Fairly Odd Parents

He may not be the sharpest tool in the shed but he has a heart of gold though and he’s funny

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.

He sure isn’t the brightest - blackflower

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

8 Lindsay - Total Drama Island

She can barely remember anyone's name - Spongehouse

Courtney: It’s butterflies

This is not the right friend for Beth.

"I love musicals, especially the ones with singing and dancing"

9 Stimpy- The Ren and Stimpy Show Stimpy- The Ren and Stimpy Show

His invention is useless

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! "

10 Leni Loud - The Loud House Leni Loud - The Loud House Leni Loud is a fictional character from The Loud House the second oldest of the Loud Family a bit of a ditz, forgetful and absent minded despite this she's a kindhearted person, a skilled fashion designer and is always willing to help others in need, she shares a room with Lori the oldest and suffers ...read more.

She is still awesome though - Spongehouse

She is dumb but nice she is my favorite character on the loud house

She can be smart when it comes to fashion and she is creative. She not as dumb as Patrick and is always willing to help and she is the nicest character on the Loud House like Luan.

She thinks a welcome mat and a napkin is a blanket. She also tried to save cooked chicken at the super market.


The Contenders

11 Richard Watterson - The Amazing World of Gumball Richard Watterson - The Amazing World of Gumball

I'm surprised he isn't in the top ten - Spongehouse

I think Richard should be on the top of the list because he is funny! and I love watching him!

This guy is definition of dumb!
The amazing world of gumball is my favorite show. Richard makes this show funny!
Plus he is married to a good looking lady!
Laugh out loud love their relationship! - gumballgal123

12 Spongebob Squarepants Spongebob Squarepants SpongeBob SquarePants is a fictional character and the titular character and protagonist of the American animated television series of the same name.

Even though he is pretty dumb he does actually have some very smart moments - Spongehouse

Spongebob is very naive, but he is far more smarter than Patrick, it's not even close.

Patrick is the dumbest but Spongebob is also idiotic, which makes him and Patrick very funny

Yeah but SpongeBob is one of the most beloved cartoon characters ever! He is very nice happy funny and silly but he is pretty dumb. But he's also AWESOME!

13 Dora the Explorer Dora the Explorer Dora is the main protagonist in the show "Dora the Explorer". Her main occupation is exploring with her monkey friend, Boots.

I agree! She is blind and deaf! She always asks dumb questions like "where is the red ball? " and "where's the mountain? " when it's a few feet away from her. - andrewteel

Stupidest person right here folks

She can travel through the world with a monkey but she can't even see the stinking tree behind her.

She is just like a person who made a boring Power Point presentation and thought it was fun.

14 Officer Barbrady - South Park Officer Barbrady - South Park

T IS FOR TURTLE. He is so dumb whenever he appears on a screen you are expecting for him to say or do something dumb that will make you laugh.

(sees Cartman to a cross) "T is for Turtle! " - gunsnroses

Why is he barely in the show anymore, I want him back, I hate that red headed cop

Lmfao! A dumbass who can't spell is criticizing a character who can't read!

15 Chris Griffin - Family Guy Chris Griffin - Family Guy Christopher Cross "Chris" Griffin is a fictional character from the American animated television series Family Guy.

Retarded fatty like his Dad!

Chris: Yeah, but mine's smarter!

"I. Like. Cereal" LOL

17 Beavis - Beavis and Butthead Beavis - Beavis and Butthead Beavis is a fictional character. He is one of the young teenaged protagonists on the MTV animated series Beavis and Butt-head.

Should be 1 or 2

Beavis should obviously be number 1 and butt head number 2.

Rant: Beavis And Butt-Head What?! More Like Stupid And Crap-Head! Oh My God! This Show Sucks! Beavis And Butt-Head Don't Stop Laughing Like Idiots They Are So Annoying! I Want To Jump Into The T.V. Screen And Goes To Makes Him A Mega Blaster Falcon Punch In That Ugly Faces

28 Uncle Grandpa - Uncle Grandpa Uncle Grandpa - Uncle Grandpa

This shoul be number one, this person is just stupid, just looking at the show titles just makes him look more dumb and even the fact that he is the uncle And grandpa of every child in the world is so confusing.

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

Butters is more naive than dumb.

36 Bolbi - Jimmy Neutron
37 Lois Griffin - Family Guy Lois Griffin - Family Guy Lois Patrice Griffin is one of the main characters of the American animated television series Family Guy.

41 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
