Top Ten Most Overrated Simpsons Characters

The Top Ten

1 Krusty The Clown Krusty The Clown Krusty the Clown is a clown from The Simpsons. He first appears in the short Krusty the Clown, but in the show he first appears in The Telltale Head. He is Jewish. Despite the fact that he is children's entertainer, he seen drinking and smoking a lot.

Everyone says that Krusty is funny. These people are just easily amused. He really isn't funny; almost everything about his character is dull. They don't put much life in, even when he's grumpy. I always associate Krusty with lack of inspiration.

I'm sorry am I on Most Overrated Simpsons Characters or Most underrated Simpsons Characters, because I would have thought over rated characters would include Bart, Nelson, Sideshow Bob, Ralph Wiggum and Maggie

You forgot Homer, he's the most overrated character on the show. - KennyRulz244444

I hate Krusty so much. He just isn't funny! - PositronWildhawk

But the older episodes he was alright, the newer ones he's boring - RickyReeves

He is annoying drug addict - OneWayStreet

2 Moe Syzlak

The main reason why Moe and Krusty appear too often is because there are a number of situations where the writers need a basic character and so they appear too much.

I don't really think moe is overrated I just don't want krusty to be 1

Moe's great! How is he overrated? He's one of my favorites! - RickyReeves

Started being overused from season 9 onwards

3 Milhouse van Houten Milhouse van Houten

Nelson is a better match for Lisa than Milhouse. Milhouse would be better off as single.

4 Lisa Simpson Lisa Simpson Lisa Marie Simpson is a fictional character in the animated television series The Simpsons. She is the middle child and most intelligent of the Simpson family.

She's hated more than she is liked, I don't think you people understand the definition of "overrated". - KennyRulz244444

Lizard Queen...

5 Ralph Wiggum Ralph Wiggum 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.

He has been dumbed down season by season. But the Simpsons is still fine people are just bored and need to change the channel and watch the Seasons they enjoyed.

They're trying to make him funny but not doing well

He was charming in the early seasons...then they beat a dead horse. and then revived it with necromancy. and then killed it again.

6 Sherri and Terri

God! I hate those monkeys!

They aren't overrated just stupid, this list is a sham.

They are background characters - RickyReeves

Massively overrated. NOT FUNNY.

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

He should be number one.

He is considered the best cartoon character of all time (yeah, even better than Bugs Bunny or Spongebob Squarepants), he apparently 'owns' the "D'oh! " quote when The Three Stooges had inked that quote a long time ago, he is considered the funniest character ever but whenever I watch him he just makes me stare.

I'd recommend Eric Cartman or Bender Bending Rodriguez as they're much funnier characters and have done more productive talents than this lazy b@stard has ever done (Cartman had gotten Scott Tenorman's parents killed and turned them into chilli and Bender managed to do loads of heroric acts).

Go ahead and downvote me, because you clearly don't understand how overrated this character has become. I used to respect Homer and The Simpsons in general, but finding it at the top spot of so many lists and seeing the show receiving a star at the Hall of Fame have led me to dislike this show and move on to better cartoons.

Homer ...more - KennyRulz244444

Definitely should be number 1

Homer is Not That Overrated

8 Patty and Selma Bouvier
9 Agnes Skinner
10 Edna Krabappel

The Contenders

11 Bart Simpson Bart Simpson Bart is the oldest child in The Simpsons. He was created by Matt Greoning. His hobbies are pranking people including Lisa Simpson and Homer Simpson.

He, Maggie, Lisa, and Marge are the only characters in this show that I can respect. - KennyRulz244444

12 Snake Jailbird

Maggie was created and designed by cartoonist Matt Groening while he was waiting in the lobby of James L. more.
19 Jasper
20 The Yes Guy
21 The Ned-liest Catch (Season 22, 2011)
22 Otto Mann Otto Mann Otto Mann is a heavy metal obsessed bus driver from The Simpsons. He first appears in the episode Homer's Odyssey. He is shown to be friends with Bart Simpson, often calling him "Bart Dude". He is voiced by Harry Shearer.
23 Ned Flanders Ned Flanders

He was fine as a foil for Homer in the early seasons, but "the act of taking a single (often minor) action or trait of a character within a work and exaggerating it more and more over time until it completely consumes the character" bears his name, and with good reason.

He was better when his wife was around- his REAL wife, not the one idiotic fans desperate to see him married again voted for.

Friendly yet annoying neighbor. Ned Flanders is still among the best characters in The Simpsons.

Maybe not overrated, but definitely overused
