She defines the word overrated - Spongehouse

2 Tina Belcher (Bob's Burgers) Tina Belcher (Bob's Burgers)

Tina is NOT overrated. She's literally the best Belcher.

While not the worst character on the show, she's definitely overrated. I mean, people are calling her a feminist icon. Really? All she does is whine about boys. I hate how she always has to be the hero lately, she acts like a whiny brat when she doesn't get what she wants from her parents, and a lot of episodes have to reach for puns to be named after her. - courtney1

Really? tina not overrated

The show would be MUCH better without her.

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

I never found him to be funny, but I respect others opinions - Spongehouse

Worse than Homer, and I mean the Homer of recent seasons

Peter's more overhated than overrated. He's my favorite character, but needs better complex storylines to rebuild his character development. - ShadowHawk18

Homer Simpson clone but is not funny and is a terrible Father!

4 Randy Marsh Randy Marsh

Is he really that overrated? - Spongehouse

5 Bill Cipher (Gravity Falls) Bill Cipher (Gravity Falls) Bill Cipher is a triangular dream demon formerly existent only in the mindscape who wished to gain access to the real world. He has been running amok in Gravity Falls, Oregon since being summoned by Stanford Pines over thirty years ago. He is known for his mysterious demeanor and sadistic humor. He more.

The most overrated villian ever in my opinion - Spongehouse


more like underrated

Lame villain

Everyone calls him the greatest villain ever.
I think he’s cool, but like c’mon. - ONEPUUUUNCH

6 Louise Belcher (Bob's Burgers) Louise Belcher (Bob's Burgers)

She should totally be on here. She is the most overrated character on the show. Everyone loves her, even though she is annoying. She gets away with everything, Bob bends over backwards for her, and her antics are never funny. This is an unpopular opinion, I know, but she just drives me crazy. - courtney1

She should be #1. Can't imagine a more overrated character.

What a brat. She is NOT funny or cute, people! She's an obnoxious little twerp. - adds432

7 Steven Universe Steven Universe

He should be AT LEAST in the top ten - Spongehouse

Yes. This whole show is overrated. - take

8 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.

He is way overrated

SpongeBob is a whiny brat who cries about the littlest things like ripping his favorite pants, breaking his spatula. GROW UP SPONGEBOB

I loved him in seasons 1-3, but with all these crap episodes now, he is WAY to overrated!

Why does he have to always be #1 on characters who beat up Santa, etc.

9 Flippy

Most overrated character in all of Happy Tree Friends with Flaky coming in close second.

What is up with the Flippy love? He's just a cartoon character for crying out loud!

Psychotic girls saying that they are a psycho beards wives

In the Happy Tree Friends fandom, apparently you are not allowed to hate/dislike Flippy or else his fangirls will go crazy. Watch any episode video on YouTube and 90% of the time, one of the most recent comments will be a fan crying "where's flippy? " or another complaining that he died.

Speaking of death, most Flippy fans complain when characters like Splendid and Cro-Marmot never die yet they like Flippy who also never dies.

10 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.

Forget What I Said About Homer Simpson

Homer Simpson Should Be Number 1

Homer Simpson Should By Number 1

Homer Simpson(And Other Cartoon Character in General) is Not My Favorite

The Newcomers

? Kuki Sanban (Codename: Kids Next Door) Kuki Sanban (Codename: Kids Next Door)

She is very obnoxious and flat-out useless. All she ever does is cry and mess things up. Her cutesy act and voice are grating. People only love her because Numbuh 4 has a crush on her and it develops him as a character. She does not shine on her own at all. - knd234

The Contenders

11 Rick Sanchez (Rick and Morty) Rick Sanchez (Rick and Morty) Rick Sanchez is a fictional character from the American animated television series Rick and Morty, aired on Adult Swim.

I love when people try to act nihilistic and claim that they are highly intelligent when worshipping this cool old dude like a god. - ONEPUUUUNCH

I love Rick, but he's way too overrated on martyr levels of worship. - ShadowHawk18

12 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.

This must be a joke - Spongehouse

There is one reason she is overrated:Dora is the source for ALL OF THE HATE. It is a kid's show that entertains the minds of young children, not something to critisize for attention.


The worst cartoon forever

13 GIR (Invader Zim) GIR (Invader Zim)

He is even more overrated than Zim - Spongehouse

Seriously... I love Gir but I prefer the characters with legitimate development thank you (COUGH Dib COUGH)

This little robot has been given all the credit for the entire show, and maybe the Pokémon franchise is next. Honestly, GIR is extremely annoying, but everyone, I mean everyone, say GIR is 'the best thing to happen to this world', which is very irrelevant. GIR doesn't have ANY haters execpt for me, and people say he is the main character. What on Earth, people? The show is called Invader ZIM, so you should know who the main character is. People actually WORSHIP GIR and have forgotten who died for our sins in the first place. I have actually seen steam locomotives that are more powerful and superior, such as the Tom Thumb. Overall, GIR recives TOO MUCH LOVE AND IT NEEDS TO STOP.

I think GIR is important. I love GIR. He's awesome. But I think the merchandise REALLY needed to cut back on GIR. Sure, he's a cute little robot, of course he's gonna have fans, but they were honestly forgetting the point of the show. ZIM got almost no merchandise at all and neither did Dib. GIR took the spotlight, GIR took the fame. And while he is a good character and somewhat of an icon, I think we'd also like to see the other characters, not just GIR.

14 Eric Cartman Eric Cartman Eric Theodore Cartman is one of the main characters in the animated television series South Park, created by Matt Stone and Trey Parker, and voiced by Trey Parker.

Lol ilike cartman sometimes but he's EXTREMELY overrated. his fanboys literally worship him like he's god

Like how he blames people, especially Kyle, for things without giving ANY proof whatsoever, and the fanboys go believing him anyway!

In the SP fandom, evil & mischief get the attention, but justice & sense are underrated. Why?

15 Invader Zim Invader Zim

Stay in your seat, folks; the unexpected entires are coming. Now, we all know Zim is an adorable little midget who attempts to kill us all with an iron fist. But the problem is that people in real life actually BOW DOWN to him literally, like he is an evil dictator overlord. When Zim says," BOW DOWN TO ZIIM! " don't listen because he is a cartoon character! I think is he an awesome character, and much better than GIR in a way, but, just don't worship him like total nuts.

I've never seen anyone "worship" ZIM except as a joke. I don't think anyone would actually want to bow down to him. He's not even popular! Dib and GIR are way more popular than he is.

I actually like Zim more than GIR. Zim never did anything to deserve a spot on this list!

Why is Tina so high on the list? I love Tina. Smart, Strong, Sensual.

Pikachu is overrated. He's been mascot for almost 2 decades. It's annoying - Neonco31

Do I even need to say why?

Yes. Explain why the annoying tiny little mouse is really overrated.

I like him but I don't think he is really cute anymore,he acts silly in purpose so everyone can think he is cute

I totally agree with you. I mean I do not HATE Picachu but I really dislike him. So boring,dull and has no purpose. I give him a 2/10

18 Beemo (Adventure Time)

Sucks just like the show...

Hot Topic is the one to blame for this one. Just like their Gir and Jack Skellington merchandise, the only way people will recognize AT is by BMO, and not the main characters Finn and Jake.

But in the fandom, BMO is underrated. *cough*FLAMEPRINCESS*cough*FIONNAANDCAKE*cough* - PhoebeThunderman

19 Fluttershy Fluttershy Fluttershy is a female pegasus pony from the 2010 animated TV show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. She is a kind pegasus and is very timid and shy. She takes care of the animals. She represents the element of kindness

A mary sue is a character that has no flaws.

She is Mary Sue on this show. My personal opinion about Mary Sue characters is that they are too perfect. I think characters must be a little more evil. Nobody is not perfect on this world

Shes way more over rated than pinkie pie...

I find MLP:FiM as a whole overrated, but Fluttershy takes the cake. - NoodleRidley
