The Top Ten
The dumbest person, but that's why we love him - roblist
Memorable moments of homer
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)
Of course he is the number one spot, but he more than deserves it. He may be dumb, but he is hilarious and A million times better father than Peter Griffin - Spongehouse
Homer Simpson, the idiot who could still make us laugh after years. Truly a legendary fictional character. - UberHams
I like him, because he's like me! Also I like Otto because he likes heavy metal - Trivium
-The Posse (2000-2010)
Bart Simpson (1980): Guitarist
Lisa Simpson (1982): Saxophone
Milhouse Van Houten (1980): Bassist
Nelson Muntz (1980): Drummer
The Posse were an American rock band formed in Springfield in 2000. With members Bart Simpson, Lisa Simpson, Milhouse Van Houten, and Nelson Muntz, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history, on par with The Beatles. Rooted by the influence of legendary musicians such as Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Eagles, Tears for Fears, Michael Jackson, and others, The Posse later experimented with innovative musical styles, ranging from blues, pop, folk, and rhythms to psychedelia, punk, and avant garde, incorporating classical elements and unorthodox recording method in creative ways. In 2003, their enormous popularity surged as "Possemania"; as the music expand in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Bart Simpson and Lisa Simpson, the band were essential to ...more
Bart is the coolest he's my favorite character! - foxrocks
Bart is Funny Class clown, genius and Prankster and most of all hates Seymour Skinner. Example Bart sees Principal Skinner in Public and then goes ahead and Publicly humiliates him Funniest thing ever.
"My cat's breath smells like cat food."
"Me fail English? That's unpossible."
"The doctor said I wouldn't have so many nosebleeds if I kept my finger outta there."
"I saw a leprechaun. He told me to burn things."
"I glued my head to my shoulder."
"...and when the doctor told me I didn't have worms anymore, that was the happiest day of my life."
I love ralph wiggum! He was kinda boring in the first 3 seasons but he got funnier over the years
ralph is great. he's really funny. he's stupid but that's why I love him.
Ralph wiggum is a legend come on people vote ralph
I absolutely love Maggie Simpson she is full of surprises considering she shot Mr Burns! I hope more people consider Maggie as their favourite
maggie is like the smartest one there and shes a gangsta! - giebler
I like Maggie but why is she at #4? She doesn't really do much in the series. Lisa should be #4. - PlanetDeadwing
maggie is so cute and the smartes with lisa - hermione_granger
I hope that when I'm a 104 years old, I'm just like him!
Hows is not in the top 3. How is Maggie and especially Ralph higher. Explain it to me internet.
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.
Lisa is intelligent little fighter for righteousness. She loves nature and she loves jazz, just like me. She is the one who would never sell her good name and would never do wrong for greed. Just like all humans, she can be wrong, yet she readily accepts that and she know how to apologize. I love Lisa Simpson very very much. Play your Saxophone sweetheart. Many people hate you, because your good acts make them look ugly and stupid. Don't mind them and what is right.
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 has always been my favorite character.
She plays guitar & saxophone equally well.
Intellectually she is a prodigy She cares about the environment & liberal progressive issues.
The most wholesome character on the show.
After the Simpsons entered its permanent coma due to brain damage (i.e. writer turnover), Lisa became a one-note go-getter with cookie cutter activist beliefs. Before that, she was intelligent and talented, but she was so much more. She didn't just say unfunny "genius" puns, she had funny lines that had a sharp edge. She wasn't just an activist, she had strong moral convictions that Most of all, she was a lonely and depressed child. She was still a believable eight-year-old girl. Her mix of maturity and immaturity was neatly balanced. The writers didn't write her as a teen/precocious tween and lean on her love of dolls and ponies to remind us of her age. The writers also didn't feel the need to show her schoolyard unpopularity every few episodes to remind us of the fact; instead, they showed us a smart kid who stuck in an indifferent environment with no one to connect to. In spite of that, she remained a light in her cynical world before the whole thing became a running gag ...more - Mert_McSmrt
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.
You just can't help sympathizing with Moe's problems. He seems mean and gritty on the outside, but he is actually rather sensitive. Moe's character always makes me laugh in two ways, either he seems overly sadistic, mean and or cruel, or he is struggling with the latent emotions he posseses.
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.
Ned is a very kind and down to Earth character, even when Homer acts like a huge jerk towards him.
She is incredible, sometimes is a good person but sometimes is a rough mother and her hair is simply the best thing.
Are you kidding me she is the worst cartoon character to ever exist. - Ilyas678
Not much of a fan of Marge. She's constantly positioned as some kind of prize who's way too good for Homer yet repeatedly gets away with plenty of horrible behavior of her own. She's a nag, she's a whiner, she's demanding, she's stubborn, she's vindictive, she's often selfish, she's bossy, she's borderline unfaithful, etc etc etc. I get it, she's not real, it's a silly comedy show. I'm just saying that for a character who's got plenty of flaws and done plenty of crappy things she seems to get a pass because she's somehow perceived as better than the other characters around her. - miketheratguy
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!
Best accent EVER! p. s. he'll kill you IN YOUR DREAMS! - fireinside96
He is highly quotable.
"Bonjour, ya cheese eatin' surrender monkeys! "
"Also, I 'ate the mess he left on me rug! " - KalloFox34
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!
he's like the police near where i live - bcrichSOB666
The stereotype policeman, only fatter, and funnier
I love him I love him when he wees in movie
He is an idiot and a useless police officer he should get fired. He accepts bribes. I hate all of Springfield's police force although I hate him the most. Die Clancy Wiggum.
Milhouse: I can't go to Juvie! They use guys like me as currency!
He always makes me laugh! - SammyD
He is always really funny when he's with bart
Everything's coming up Milhouse
But his name is one word to describe the store-brought spring rolls from aldi - SnoopDoggedyDog
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
I hate clowns, but I love krusty
He's just funny and hilarious
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 am DISGUSTED that this man is not at LEAST in the top ten! - Aceacles
He should be in the top ten. He's not only a well done stereotype, but he's possibly the closest character to a real person. He feels the most genuine emotions at the right times, is a good role model, and is just downright awesome all the time. Also he's incredibly hilarious as are most of the characters in the show. (seasons 1-8, that is. I prefer not to talk about what's past that point, since most of it is horrible.)
Everybody loves an Indian guy, THANK YOU! COME AGAIN!
Think of all the wonderful Apu quotes over the years. Vote for Pedro. I mean Apu. You know, I remember back in ninteen dickety two when I first thought of Apu. We had to say dickety...
He is one of the greatest Indian cartoon characters of all time. He deserves to be praised. - TheHotDogs
I really admire the way how Abe was serving the Military back then.
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
Abe Simpson is the most interesting Simpson. I love the story, where his former wrestling career is revealed. There is true depth to this character.
So funny I love this guy
Remember when he went on that awkward date with Edna krappabel - SnoopDoggedyDog
does anyone remember when he went on a date with smithers mother?
Skinners Mother: The sun is so beutifull (something like that)
Comic Book Guy: Could it BE anymore OR-ANGE! - arabhomie68
I seriously just laugh whenever he comes on screen! He's so iconic and hilarious, how can he not be number one on here?!
THE FUNNIEST CHARACTER EVER!
I wish there was more of him! - clerkatron
You, with your words like knifes and swords and weapons that you against me. You, have knocked me off my feet again, got me feeling like I'm nothing. You, with your voice like nails on a chalkboard, calling me out when I'm wounded. You, picking on the weaker man. You can take me down with just 1 single blow. But you don't know, what you don't know, someday I'll be living in a big old city. And all your ever gonna be is mean. Why you gotta be so mean? You, with your switching sides and your wildfire lies and your humiliation. You have pointed out my flaws again as if I don't already see them. I walk with my head down, try to block you out 'cause I'll never impress you. I just wanna feel ok again. I bet you got pushed around. Somebody made you feel cold but the cycle ends right now. 'Cause you can't lead me down that road. And you don't know, what you don't know, someday I'll be living in a big old city. And all your ever gonna be is mean. Someday I'll be big enough so you cannot hit ...more
Haw-Haw! Laugh out loud he's hilarious! He is not smart, he ain't pretty, but he should be an comedian!
"Hey Bart, your epidermis is showing! " - Rotorhead
"Dam, I was aiming for his head! "
Santa's little helper is so cute.
I heart him. Loved him since the first season
He is so cute I LOVE dogs
I love Greyhounds now.
I like this permanent stoned bus driver :)
and he is listening to good music - AllAustrianReject
I can relate to this guy even though I don't drive a bus, he's cool and he can play the guitar cool too! - westofohio
dude otto is the man he will always be my favorite simpsons character try to find the episode "the mook, the chef, the wife, and her homer" - PlaymateBass
Love his quote... "METALLICA RULE"(with lighter in his hand).. LOL
I remember the day when I first heard about Waylon Smithers. My friend told me about him: "Waylon Smithers is HILARIOUS. He's Mr. Burns's assistant, and he has a HUGE crush on him. Also, in one of the newest episodes, he does DRAG, and he asked Marge if she was a drag queen. IT WAS SO FUNNY." (And yes, that is actually along the lines of what she actually told me) He sounded, honestly, like the worst character ever written. (I mean, who wouldn't think that when that's what description you're given.) But, I was curious nonetheless to see who he was and if he was truly that awful. I watched some scenes with him in them... and I fell in LOVE with this character. I related to his inability to tell Mr. Burns how he felt, yet the strong passion he had for him, and his unwavering loyalty to him, as well as the fact that Mr. Burns seems to be the only thing (next to Malibu Stacey dolls, of course) that Smithers focuses on and dedicates his life to. I'm the same way with my own work, ...more
He is a simple yet beautiful character. On one side, he loves his boss unconditionally, but can't tell him for ambiguous reasons and he has strong morals despite serving the most evil man in Springfield. He is kind and pleasant, yet can feel jealous of other people and can be rude at times. So, in short, he has flaws, and while he relies on Mr.Burns to exist in the show, he is a fantastic, relatable, funny, and just a charming little guy. He should be way higher on this list and is horribly underrated.
He's a real sweetie. Something about his truly unconditional love for Mr. Burns is incredibly endearing (and a little sad).
I love how he interacts with everyone; he and Mr. Burns are so much fun to watch together!
He is so Burns sexual. It's both adorable and a little sad. But apart from his sexuality he is an endearing character with perfect voice. I can't believe he is this far down .
How is one of the greatest and most complex characters in the Simpsons so low on this list?!
Rewatch the episode "Sweet Seymour Skinner's Baadass Songs", "Principal Charming" and many other moments with him in the Classic era (seasons 1-8) and you'll see why he deserves to be higher in this list.
Seymour is definitely the best. He always has a hilarious scene with chalmers And he always says "oh mercy! "
'Steamed Hams'... Need I say anything more? - FarrowtheEdgehog15
The only Barney that is dumber and drunker than him is Barney the Dinosaur
Funniest character on the show... belch... lol - RED_EYEZ
i really think that barney gumble is sweet...
He's awesome and funny
Scratchy looks so funny when he always basically gets killed by itchy
I feel bad for Scratchy because he keeps getting killed 24/7 by that stupid Itchy. I hope Scratchy makes up his mind and eats the life out of him.
I may say,"the show is as funny as the simpsons"
Whoever made this list spelt the name wrong - SnoopDoggedyDog
Laugh out loud so funny, "you can take spider pig with you! " "he's not spider pig anymore, he's harry plopper" OINK!
Spider pig, Spider Pig, does whatever a spiderpig does! - Haloinc
Why the heck are there footprints on the ceiling-lol
This one isn't a real Simpson character in my mind - SnoopDoggedyDog
this guy totally rules
"they say he carved it himself...from a bigger spoon"
CLASSIC - SoloStriker
A little late for lenny. Classic!
When I grow up, I want to be just like him.
Lenny is the best most underrated character on the simpsons
Come on people, this man dressed up like a ancient guy, but he talks with Opera accent, this is funny enough.
How the hell is he not higher. funniest character on the simpsons
Marge:Maybe I am insane I'm talking to myself
Hans: You are? Ooohhh I thought I made a friend - SnoopDoggedyDog

I love the innocent coincidence of how every I+S episode has to do with what's happening in the simpsons
Oh yeah it does
I wonder what they were ment to be. (Tom and Jerry)
Watch " The treehouse if horror VIII" and you will find a dark secret about john - SnoopDoggedyDog
This guy is hilarious. He reminds me of Jerry Lewis - aman28
22nd?!?! That's so 'Glavin' annoy-ing! This guy is brilliant and massively underrated. I can't believe it, in all honesty.
He's one of my favourite characters on the Simpsons, wish he'll appear more often. The annoyiest would be Lenny and Carl with Cookie Kwan. Not Lindsay Nagel.
Frank Grimes was so perfect, neat and hardworking, and looking at Homer sloppy work, it drove him so mad he electrocuted himself while imitating Homer, come on you gotta remember him!
Best simpsons character in the best episode
I laughed a lot when he dies
People might be voting for Frank Grimes Jr., when they really mean to vote for Frank Grimes.
Duffman never dies. Only the actors who play him do.
I think it is VERY funny when he said Duffman Is Feeling A Bit Of Softness in his Heart!
I found out about Duffman before I found out about Kool-Aid Guy.
OH YEAH, DUFFMAN IS HERE TO SAVE THE DAY! He deserves better than #25. - drifterz2
Hi, I'm Troy McClure, you might remember me from such lists as Top Ten favorite Simpsons characters and Simpsons characters lost after Phil Hartman's death.

You know your going to win when your lawyers in jail!

I Can't Believe it's a Law Firm!
! He is probably one of the funniest characters in the Simpsons because of his IRRESPONSIBILITY!
"Um. Does anybody have some chocalate."
Percentage wise, this character is the best. Sure, I have laughed more times at Homer, Ralph, Martin, Ned, etc. , but every time this dude is on I laugh. - Hajj
