Same as number 1 - simpsondude

And number 2

5 D'oh is the best quote ever

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

6 He's not offensive

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

7 He's more original

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

8 He pays attention to Bart

Peter doesn't care about stevie at all - simpsondude

9 Homer isn't mean to his daughter

Meg is mean - Breadwinnersislofe

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

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

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.

10 He has funnier quotes

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

The Contenders

11 He's not mean

Homer is a very nice guy

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.

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

But he chokes bart

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

At least Homer can make us laugh. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

Homer strangles Bart in impossible funny ways, like breaking the wall of the bedrooms and strangling him.

14 Homer has a big heart


15 Homer's more of a family guy than Peter

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

16 Homer is funny stupid, Peter is stupid stupid

Aww, oh God I always get these. Umm.. okay.. uhh.. all right.. fire truck.. fire truck fire truck fire truck fire truck. What color are those red fire trucks? Uhh.. Oh god I can picture them now... all red and everything.

17 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.

18 Homer is slightly smarter than Peter


19 Homer's sane

That episode with that fat mental guy who thought he was Michael Jackson.
Homer Simpson got a certificate saying "Not Insane" and he was only sent to the mental hospital because of a pink shirt and being too lazy to fill in the paper work and having Bart messing it up.

Lets face the fact, Peter is INSANE!

20 Homer tries to be a good father
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 Peter Griffin shook his baby because it wouldn't stop crying

Peter Griffin Jr.

24 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!

25 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!

26 Homer isn't racist

The only reason why the simpsons were able to go on all these years is because Homer isn't as selfish as Peter is!

27 Homer actually tries

Homer tries. He knows he messes up. He knows he makes mistakes. He feels remorseful and tries to make it right. He doesn't always succeed but dang it he tries!

Peter on the other hand, cares only about himself, goes out of his way to mess things up because he thinks its funny, regardless of who it hurts.

When homer hurts someone, its not intentionally and he wants to fix it!

28 Peter is a jerk while Homer is nice
29 Homer has better quotes

DOH,Woo HOO,WHY U LITTLE,Wanna go out for some frosty chocolate milkshakes, MHHH donuts

30 Good to his family
31 He came first
