Reasons Why Homer Simpson Is Better Than Peter Griffin


The Top Ten

1 He's funnier

He tried to pretend to be a black guy and Lois beat him up I was so happy!

Peter just uses innapropriate jokes - simpsondude

He pooped

2 He's not offensive

Peter is offensive to lots of people in some jokes - simpsondude

3 He doesn't use inappropriate jokes

Same as number 1 - simpsondude

And number 2

4 He's more original

Ain't that the truth? Peter Griffin is a terrible ripoff and Family Guy should be cancelled.

5 He's not mean

Yeah... Peter shot Meg in the face for saying HI. Homer lets Lisa say hi to him all the time. Homer strangles Bart, Peter attempts to drown Meg.

Homer cares about his family,
Peter would rather drink beer with his friends.

Homer is the better man

Homer Simpson is a stupid but kind and funny father while Peter griffin is basically an adult version of Eric Cartman but without the funniness.

But he chokes bart

6 He pays attention to Bart

Peter doesn't care about stevie at all - simpsondude

7 Peter blames his problems on Meg
8 He doesn't hate Marge

Actually in my opinion, I think peter has a reason to hate Lois

9 D'oh is the best quote ever

How is that catchphrase funny.Can someone please explain that to me

10 He has funnier quotes

Both, I think, were funniest in the older days. - PositronWildhawk

The Contenders

11 Homer isn't mean to his daughter

Remember the episode when Homer had a crayon removed from his brain. Lisa didn't want her dad to go back to his stupidness.

Just watch "Make Room for Lisa." - Season 10.

One thing that made me stop watching family guy is the fact that all the jokes and humor were all overshadowed tremendously by me feeling insanely sorry for Meg. Her life is horrible, her entire family hates her, especially her father.. in fact Brian is right in saying that Meg is the strongest person in the family, if my life was filled with such misery I would've offed myself ages ago. I just can't stand watching how Peter treats Meg. The fact that the producers think this is funny is proof that Family Guy should just END already.

Homer on the other hand has a beautiful relationship with Lisa. I still remember the episode where Lisa needed to relieve her stress.. and she momentarily had a vision of herself as Homer.. and realized that Homer did a LOT of things he hated all for the sake of spending time with her.. Peter would never do that, even if it wasn't Meg. What Homer lacks in brains he makes up for in his insanely big heart and innocence.

12 Homer abuses Bart, in a funny way! Peter abuses his whole family, especially Meg in a way which is quite horrific!

I wouldn't call strangling someone funny but it's better than shooting someone just for saying hi... - SomePersonYouHate

13 Homer has a big heart
14 Homer is funny stupid, Peter is stupid stupid
15 Homer is a better husband
16 Homer tries to be a good father
17 Homer's more of a family guy than Peter

Homer is a family Guy, Peter is just not...

18 Homer's sane

Lets face the fact, Peter is INSANE!

19 Homer is stupid, but plausibly so

Peter does/says things sometimes that are so stupid it's painful to listen to or watch, for example, the time he cut off his thumb and gave it to Lois because he forgot to buy her a present. Nobody, anywhere would do anything so stupid... the stupid things Homer does/says, there are people in real life who do/say them.

20 Homer is slightly smarter than Peter
21 Homer would let most characters from Springfield live in his home.

I do agree with you

22 Homer's bad episodes are better
23 Homer is less judgmental

Homer may be stupid, but at least he has a heart. Homer actually treats his family better while Peter treats his own wife like crap. Peter never listens to anyone, all he does is says what he thinks is right, he never has time to listen to other people's opinions. And when he does, he belittles them! What a jerk!

24 Homer is a better listener

Homer may be stupid, but at least he has a heart! He treats his family better than Peter treats his own daughter! Besides, Peter never listens to anyone! Peter does only what he thinks is best. And even when he does listen to other people's opinions. He criticizes them! What a jerk!
