Top Ten Most Overrated Simpsons Characters

The Top Ten

1 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

Started being overused from season 9 onwards

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

3 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.

Uh... Lisa is underrated actually! Lisa isn't bad l. So is homer anyone who thinks Lisa or homer are overrated are idiots...

Egotistical brat who would make for a great dictator. Whiny, arrogant, orwellian nightmare.

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

Lizard Queen...

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

The overrated fatso!

Not A Fan of Homer Simpson or Other Simpson Characters in General

I Mean:Homer Simpson and Other Characters From Other Cartoons is Not My Favorite Character

Homer Simpson and Other Cartoon Characters is Not My Favorite Character

5 Milhouse van Houten Milhouse Mussolini Van Houten is a fictional character in the animated television series The Simpsons, voiced by Pamela Hayden, and created by Matt Groening who named the character after President Richard Nixon's middle name.

I to be honest think Lisa is underrated...

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

6 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.

Ralph Wiggum should be number 1.
Lisa is over-hated.
I like 90s Ralph Wiggum.

His last smart episodes "I love Lisa" just a kid who didn't have any friends and at the chili cook off when he told Homer that he was eating candle wax and then worried about Homer (When Homer was having the trip from the curry) and Otto said about knowing what he's doing.

The best Simpsons character ever. You take this back!...or not. Still, I'm shocked. - truckturner

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.

7 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.

8 Patty and Selma Bouvier
9 Agnes Skinner
10 Bart Simpson Bartholomew JoJo "Bart" Simpson is the oldest child, and the only son, in the 1987 show The Simpsons. He was created by Matt Groening. His hobbies are pranking people including Lisa Simpson and Homer Simpson.

Not bad but he isn't near as interesting as the other Simpsons

If he was that great, he wouldn't still be in primary/grade school for nearly 30 years. In all seriousness, I think he's a bit played out. - truckturner

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

The Contenders

11 Edna Krabappel Edna Krabappel is a fictional character from the animated television series The Simpsons, who was voiced by Marcia Wallace until her death in October 2013. She was the teacher of Bart Simpson's 4th grade class at Springfield Elementary School.
12 Sideshow Bob Dr. Robert Underdunk Terwilliger, better known as Sideshow Bob, is a recurring character in the animated television series The Simpsons.
13 Snake Jailbird
14 Miss Hoover

Arguably the worst character in the show. I don't know why anyone WOULD like her, as she has less depth to her character than even Maude Flanders or Sideshow Mel and to add to it she doesn't even have a good personality.

15 Marge Simpson Marjorie Jacqueline "Marge" Simpson is a fictional character in the American animated sitcom The Simpsons and part of the eponymous family.

Opposite of overrated. - Alkadikce

16 Ned Flanders Nedward Flanders Jr. is a recurring fictional character in the animated television series The Simpsons.

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.

Killing Maude was pointless.

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

Maybe not overrated, but definitely overused

17 Hans Moleman Hans Moleman is a recurring character on the animated television series The Simpsons. He was created by series creator Matt Groening and is voiced by Dan Castellaneta, and first appeared in the episode "Principal Charming".
18 Sideshow Mel Sideshow Mel is a character in The Simpsons. He is the sidekick of Krusty the Clown because Sideshow Bob went to jail. He first appears in the episode Itchy and Scratchy and Marge.
19 Maggie Simpson Margaret "Maggie" Simpson is a fictional character in the animated television series The Simpsons. She first appeared on television in the Tracey Ullman Show short "Good Night" on April 19, 1987. Maggie was created and designed by cartoonist Matt Groening while he was waiting in the lobby of James L. ...read more.
20 Jasper
21 The Yes Guy
22 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 Apu Nahasapeemapetilon
