Favorite The Simpsons CharactersA list of the top ten most popular characters from the Simpsons television series, the longest-running American sitcom and longest-running American animated program of all time. For a complete list of Simpsons characters, check out this page .
Whenever I was checking remixes by many users, I was reacting and laughing on how many people favorited Homer as their favorite. After all, he's the one to stand out the most. He's hilarious yet stupid at the same time! The funny thing is that I actually got Homer according to my tropical sun sign, in which I'm a Taurus. He's the most favorited character out of all of them as of right now.
Honestly, Homer's my favorite character. He's such an idiot, but he's HILARIOUS. He's the most stupid character on the show, yet he's so dang loveable for being so funny. I love him. He's so relatable! Remember that episode where he gets in to College and burns his High School Diploma while singing "I am so smart! S-M-R-T! " While a fire forms around him? That was so relatable. By far my favorite character.
He is fat, stupid, selfish, drunk and doesn't understand anything. Which I guess is why people love him, because he's so easily hateable that he's hilarious. And if that doesn't make sense then your wig doesn't either. He's an absolute dolt, but if its what floats your boat (and it totally does) then I completely understand why you find him funny.
Despite Homer's character being little more than a dumb guy who likes to drink the beerz nowadays, I vote for Homer because he has managed to remain pretty likeable.
Homer used to be a kind but simple man who cared a lot for his family but was rather easy to anger, but not blinded by stupidity.
Also, I would've vote for 1989 Lisa Simpson but didn't see such an entry
In the early days of the show, Bart was the breakout star. He put the mothballs in the beef stew, and he was this century's Dennis the Menace. However, and this may be a bit of an unpopular opinion, he's always felt a little overrated. Obviously, he's a great character, and maybe, as a kid, you love the wacky antics of Bart. But as an adult, none of it works quite as well. However, over the years, he's had so many great lines, and hilarious moments, and he's been the focal point of so many episodes, that he's definitely earned a top spot on this list. And those rare occasions when they've allowed Bart to have more "dramatic" storylines certainly helps, too.
He's got the skateboard, he's got the 'tude, he's got some of the best catchphrases a '90s kid could ask for. But Bart's not just the troublemaker writing chalkboard sentences during detention every day. He's a misunderstood pre-teen with more energy and ingenuity than his distracted parents and teachers know what to do with that, plus some questionable punishments tactics from his father, lands in him a lot of trouble that lives at the show's core. Some people might think Bart is overrated, but honestly, they can eat my shorts.
-The Posse (2000-2010)
Bart Simpson (1980): Guitarist
Lisa Simpson (1982): Saxophone
Milhouse Van Houten (1980): Bassist
Nelson Muntz (1980): Drummer
The Posse were an American rock band formed in Springfield in 2000. With members Bart Simpson, Lisa Simpson, Milhouse Van Houten, and Nelson Muntz, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history, on par with The Beatles. Rooted by the influence of legendary musicians such as Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Eagles, Tears for Fears, Michael Jackson, and others, The Posse later experimented with innovative musical styles, ranging from blues, pop, folk, and rhythms to psychedelia, punk, and avant garde, incorporating classical elements and unorthodox recording method in creative ways. In 2003, their enormous popularity surged as "Possemania"; as the music expand in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Bart Simpson and Lisa Simpson, the band were essential to ...more
When The Simpsons first started, Bart was effectively the main character. Sure, Homer was the draw to the everyday adult viewer, but it was Bart's adventures that we followed more often than not.
During this time, we were treated to a number of hilarious evergreen quotes. Whether it's "eat my shorts", "ay caramba" or "don't have a cow, man", there are very few people who would hear those phrases and not associate them to the spiky headed hell-raiser.
It absolutely exasperates me that Ralph is the favorite character of so many people. He isn't funny, he's a braindead punchline machine that takes zero effort to write. I can only assume that people like him because they still think that it's ironic or that they're part of some exclusive club for doing so, or - more likely - they find him legitimately funny because their standards are so low that they consider random non sequiturs delivered by someone who in real life could accurately be described as developmentally disabled to constitute great "comedy".
"My cat's breath smells like cat food."
"Me fail English? That's unpossible."
"The doctor said I wouldn't have so many nosebleeds if I kept my finger outta there."
"I saw a leprechaun. He told me to burn things."
"I glued my head to my shoulder."
"...and when the doctor told me I didn't have worms anymore, that was the happiest day of my life."
Ralph is one of the funniest characters on the show. He has great lines and is so dumb. But I should say that I hate Marge, she is the worst character on the show. Lisa is the second worst character. Both are whiny, cranky, and annoying pieces of crap.
Ralph's best quotes:
I like men now
I wouldn't have so many nosebleeds if I kept my finger out of there!
These berries taste like... Burning
Ms. Hoover, my head is glued to my shoulder again
This is my sandbox, I'm not allowed to go in the deep end
First of all, her pacifying noises are oddly satisfying, and second, when Maggie used violence from The Itchy & Scratchy Show to try to injure Homer, it was hilarious because it's a reference to Psycho, lol! For my bonus, her first word "Daddy" is so adorable; imagine if the Simpsons actually heard her saying that!
Maggie in the golden era was wonderfully written and capable of being the center of a scene without needing dialog. Some of the best moments in the series involved her especially the end to "and Maggie makes three" as well as her first words. Maggie in the school for tiny tots was fantastic.
Our little angel, that probably won't be growing up anytime soon. Unless it's the future Simpsons episodes, where Bart and Lisa have their own families. Besides that, I love Maggie, she's cute, caring, and surprisingly very smart. Kudos to the little baby girl!
I love Maggie Simpson,she is the only character I focus on in the whole show! Her lil succ succ is to cute and I love it when she smiles. She somehow even influenced me to want a pacifier again! And the way she shot mr burns,I mean,no kid could do that! Also she is the most mature of her siblings when she is just a YEAR old!
Burns episodes tend to be my favorite, especially if they also heavily feature Homer. Burns' out of touch, antiquated perspective on everything is consistently amusing. How does a guy who is so weak, clueless, impotent and forgetful manage to remain the most wealthy, powerful and feared man in Springfield? Burns is basically a walking contradiction, a humorously confused and anachronistic figure who's nonetheless always given sharp dialogue and performed wonderfully by Harry Shearer. If there's one character I can say I've never disliked, it's Mr. Burns.
I'm delighted whenever Burns appears onscreen. He's a walking contradiction of terms - threatening and powerful yet impotent and weak, intelligent with a razor-sharp memory for all turn of the century culture yet completely helpless in a modern world that's structure seems to completely elude him. Voiced with unmistakable vigor by Harry Shearer, Mr. Burns is The Simpsons' funniest asset.
I admit Homer is the funniest but Mr Burns is just so likable for being the most devious and diverse character in the show, I have no idea how Bart and Ralph are higher than him, Bart is lame beyond belief and Ralph is just retarded and not funny.
Mr Burns is awesome! He should be number one on the list. For me, he is the only funny character on the simpsons. He so evil especially when he tents his fingertips and says in a low sinister voice, excellent...
I relate to Lisa because of her musical talents, some of the traits, her appearance, and her intelligence. I'm not a vegetarian, but she's admirable and just, interesting. She is one of my favorite characters of the Simpsons!
She is an intellectual, a true role model to all those young females out there and is no less interesting than her somewhat less "nerdy" brother, Bart Simpson. Despite being the voice of reason (albeit not always being hears) she is not always correct, her flaws making her all the more human and relatable to. She also has an understanding for animals, a gift in music and a live for literature - a few admirable and rare qualities, not common between the people of Springfield, making her unique.
She is understanding, caring and despite being short tempered at times, she is one of those people you could most likely rely on to help you with a problem. No matter how much she lacks in popularity within her school, I believe she is very popular between the fans of the Simpsons, for who she is.
As much as I think that Bart is one of the best comedic T.V. characters of all time, my favorite Simpsons character has to be Lisa. Voiced to winsome perfection by Yeardley Smith, Lisa is the ultimate smart cookie. She's 8 years old, but she already knows more about monorail engineering, the history of cowboys, and vegetarianism than most of the adults around her. But that's not to say she isn't flawed. Lisa does make mistakes, and that's what I love about her. No matter how hard she tries to be the smart one in a family that's largely ignorant about the ways of the world, she ultimately realizes she needs to appreciate the family that she has and to be true to herself. Lisa is just a wonderful character to watch and I hope more Simpsons episodes will be made that focus on her.
After the Simpsons entered its permanent coma due to brain damage (I.e. writer turnover), Lisa became a one-note go-getter with cookie cutter activist beliefs. Before that, she was intelligent and talented, but she was so much more. She didn't just say unfunny "genius" puns, she had funny lines that had a sharp edge. She wasn't just an activist, she had strong moral convictions that Most of all, she was a lonely and depressed child. She was still a believable eight-year-old girl. Her mix of maturity and immaturity was neatly balanced. The writers didn't write her as a teen/precocious tween and lean on her love of dolls and ponies to remind us of her age. The writers also didn't feel the need to show her schoolyard unpopularity every few episodes to remind us of the fact; instead, they showed us a smart kid who stuck in an indifferent environment with no one to connect to. In spite of that, she remained a light in her cynical world before the whole thing became a running gag that had ...more
Moe is an amazing character.
He is the greatest character of all.
Heck, he know that Bart was the one prank calling him the whole time and just plays along for the laughs.
His heart is always in the right place and he proves it every time he appears.
Also he know that it wasn't Jimbo, he know all too well that it was Bart.
Just shows how much he cares about Homer and his family.
You just can't help sympathizing with Moe's problems. He seems mean and gritty on the outside, but he is actually rather sensitive. Moe's character always makes me laugh in two ways, either he seems overly sadistic, mean and or cruel, or he is struggling with the latent emotions he posseses.
Moe's hilarious. An ugly, raspy, embittered cynic who repeatedly tries (and fails) to overcome the fact that he knows how much he sucks. Easily my favorite of Hank Azaria's characters.
The bartender is always the best!
Without him Homer wouldn't even be funny are merge wouldn't even of married homer so for the love of god vote for Moe.
Ned is my hero. Seriously, He Always remains happy no matter what the weather, He is always being nice to everyone even when they do bad things on him. He is the best neighborino anyone could ever ask for. Even Homer said himself once, "If the world was full of people like Ned Flanders, there would be no need for Heaven because Heaven would be right here on Earth". He is a perfect example of how a Christian should behave & live there life. He's a great guy, and the world would be a better place if there were more Ned's around.
Flanders is an awesome addition character to the Simpsons, I mean you have Homer, who is just a joker, then smart Lisa, Trouble Maker Bart, Baby Maggie, Great Mother Marge, and all the other characters have their own special personality. Ned stands out a lot with his perfect, and positive attitude.
Nedward "Ned" Flanders and Squidward "Six Arms" Tentacles are extremely funny. Nedward "Ned" Flanders has a moustache. Squidward "Six Arms" Tentacles doesn't. Nedward "Ned" Flanders and Squidward "Six Arms" Tentacles use the same first name.
Ned lost a lot of his character when he was watered down to little more than a God-fearing religious dweeb, but he remains one of the more entertaining characters of the show.
I relate to Marge because in the Season 3 episode "Homer Alone", she was cranky and was out of control, causing her to stop the car, so she can concentrate on what's going on. Then, she really needed to take a break and relax once in a while. Also, she had qualities similar to mine as well. To be honest, I think she does look attractive.
Marge puts up with crap after crap from Homer. Though her questionable complacency prevents her from aging well, it is safe to say she is loving, caring, and altruistic when it comes to Homer and her family. She steps back and admits when she is wrong, and she supports Homer's growth for "as long as it takes" (which is very). No, she's not hilarious, or dumb, or someone to laugh at, but she is a wonderful character that serves as a reminder of sanity.
Not much of a fan of Marge. She's constantly positioned as some kind of prize who's way too good for Homer yet repeatedly gets away with plenty of horrible behavior of her own. She's a nag, she's a whiner, she's demanding, she's stubborn, she's vindictive, she's often selfish, she's bossy, she's borderline unfaithful, etc etc etc. I get it, she's not real, it's a silly comedy show. I'm just saying that for a character who's got plenty of flaws and done plenty of crappy things she seems to get a pass because she's somehow perceived as better than the other characters around her.
Marge is so funny because she is not meant to be. She says things that are so subtle that they are funny. Like when she says "get back hunky cat" or sings the hilarious song to bart about how to save money "put it in your cap" she should be number 1!
A quote machine:
"Give me that you that you noodle armed choir boy"
"Bonjourrr ya cheese eatin surrender Monkeys"
"Willie hears ya, Willie don't care"
"Miracles are your department Reverend"
"Looks your too good for me too college girl"
"Grease me up woman"
"What flows from the nose does not go on the clothes"
Of course he will get angry, he must hardly get any money he has to take care of a memory bored to those who were lost on field trips he has to keep thr school clean clear up wendalls puke deal with skinner and he lives in a shed...
They honestly need more episodes with groundskeeper willie. THERe's SO LITTLE! There's only nightmare on evergreen terrace. I don't know if there's any more...
Haha he makes me laugh every time. My favourite moment was when he was skateboarding down the stairs and says to the children "what are ya looking at ya bastards! "
This guy is amazing and despite being voiced by a guest star that always comes back to voice him, Sideshow Bob is a really good villain character with a mind that almost revals Lisa Simpson herself.
I'd love to see him appear more often but he doesn't, he may just be a guest star but he truly does deserve more episodes.
Sideshow Bob is so awesome! His outrageously smart but unsuccessful plans to try to kill Bart, his ingeniousness fights with Lisa, and his bad luck (especially with garden rakes) is humorous to everyone who likes a psychopathic ingenious killer as a side character. I wish the creators of The Simpsons added more episodes with him, maybe even in season 24 or 25. I love those episodes, and watched each one at LEAST 4 times!
I think people see him as a murdering lunatic but ACTUALY he is probably the most sophisticated civilised nicest person in Springfeild! The only reason that he went completely insane was because of Bart! All he wanted was to not be tormented by Bart. He even went all the way to Italy to get away from Bart, but yet again... The Simpsons still followed him there and ruined everything for him. Then he got locked up in a mental institute, shot with a tranculilser dart, tasered, exc exc exc. How would YOU feel after all of that? I know I would want to kill Bart, so please vote for Bob!
Personally Sideshow Bob is my favorite because he is a creepy but funny, Shakespeare-loving psychopath who's brilliance and longing for revenge make him a very unique and interesting character. I as well wish he had been included in more episodes, as he is an awesome guy who makes The Simpsons that much cooler and more hilarious!
He is an idiot and a useless police officer he should get fired. He accepts bribes. I hate all of Springfield's police force although I hate him the most. Die Clancy Wiggum.
Edward G. Robinson isn't funny. A cartoon character whose defining traits can basically be summarized as "Edward G. Robinson in piglike cartoon form" isn't any more funny.
"The Policeman we all wish we had."
How I love all of clancy...
I love krusty he's so funny but not how he's supposed be on a children's show. People put a lot of clips that they say is the best of krusty but I think almost every clips deserves to be on there
Krusty has said so many funny things, but yet he has a
sometimes quite miserable life. He is selfish, hilarious and loud, and that's why he's so great!
Maude Flanders- were talking about s-e-x in front of the c-h-I-l-d-r-e-n
Krusty- Sex Cauldron I thought they closed that place down.
Best cloun ever should be in the top ten or even in my opinion in the top five!
Made his own silent cameo appearance in The Lego Movie. Milhouse has the same yellow skin tone as the Lego minifigures in the film (except for Michelangelo and Morgan Freeman's character).
Milhouse is an underrated character. Make him at least top ten. It'll be the highest he's ever been.
Milhouse is a hilarious nerd who follows bart around everywhere! classic nerd best friend
"I sold my marrow. I didn't have a lot of marrow.
Abe Simpson is the most interesting Simpson. I love the story, where his former wrestling career is revealed. There is true depth to this character.
Definitely one of the most underrated characters. Many episodes telling his great story have stayed in my memory more than other episodes.
Really? 13? This guy is so senile, stupid and useless. But that's what makes him hillarious. His stories that don't go anywhere, which reminds me of the time I went to India. I saw this man ride an Elephant, which reminds me of the time whe-zz
I really admire the way how Abe was serving the Military back then.
He should be in the top ten. He's not only a well done stereotype, but he's possibly the closest character to a real person. He feels the most genuine emotions at the right times, is a good role model, and is just downright awesome all the time. Also he's incredibly hilarious as are most of the characters in the show. (seasons 1-8, that is. I prefer not to talk about what's past that point, since most of it is horrible.)
Shouldn't be down here is my favorite & is a very good person, cool smart & pretty funny

8. Lisa Simpson
9. Homer Simpson
Think of all the wonderful Apu quotes over the years. Vote for Pedro. I mean Apu. You know, I remember back in ninteen dickety two when I first thought of Apu. We had to say dickety...
He is one of the greatest Indian cartoon characters of all time. He deserves to be praised.
I love Comic Book Guy! Best. Character. Ever. He is a classic character! From dating skinner's mom to Attempting to marry Edna krabappel, this guy is over the top funny!
I seriously just laugh whenever he comes on screen! He's so iconic and hilarious, how can he not be number one on here?!
He's so funny, and also a ton like me because basically all I ever do is sit on my computer.
I love him so much! He makes me proud to be a nerd!
You, with your words like knifes and swords and weapons that you against me. You, have knocked me off my feet again, got me feeling like I'm nothing. You, with your voice like nails on a chalkboard, calling me out when I'm wounded. You, picking on the weaker man. You can take me down with just 1 single blow. But you don't know, what you don't know, someday I'll be living in a big old city. And all your ever gonna be is mean. Why you gotta be so mean? You, with your switching sides and your wildfire lies and your humiliation. You have pointed out my flaws again as if I don't already see them. I walk with my head down, try to block you out 'cause I'll never impress you. I just wanna feel ok again. I bet you got pushed around. Somebody made you feel cold but the cycle ends right now. 'Cause you can't lead me down that road. And you don't know, what you don't know, someday I'll be living in a big old city. And all your ever gonna be is mean. Someday I'll be big enough so you cannot hit ...more
Haw-Haw! Laugh out loud he's hilarious! He is not smart, he ain't pretty, but he should be an comedian!
He really goes through changes throughout the series.
They should make another episode about him and Lisa...
He is a simple yet beautiful character. On one side, he loves his boss unconditionally, but can't tell him for ambiguous reasons and he has strong morals despite serving the most evil man in Springfield. He is kind and pleasant, yet can feel jealous of other people and can be rude at times. So, in short, he has flaws, and while he relies on Mr.Burns to exist in the show, he is a fantastic, relatable, funny, and just a charming little guy. He should be way higher on this list and is horribly underrated.
Waylon Joseph Smithers is easily my favorite character in The Simpsons, and my second favorite character in all of media. (Right behind Bill Cipher) He's relatable, sweet, has generally good morals, and knows when to interfere with Burns' schemes. He's just so genuinely amazing, and I can't find one thing about him that I don't like. His character is oddly realistic, and that makes him such a like able character as a whole.
Smithers is adorable. Say what you want about his love interest, he goes above and beyond to do his best at his work, even when he faces life-threatening conditions or is undermined by Burns himself.
He's a real sweetie. Something about his truly unconditional love for Mr. Burns is incredibly endearing (and a little sad).
I love how he interacts with everyone; he and Mr. Burns are so much fun to watch together!
I heart him. Loved him since the first season
Santa's little helper is so cute.
The loyalty of the Simpson family.
I love Greyhounds now.
Marge Simpson: Maybe I am insane. I mean, I am talking to myself.
Hans Moleman: You are? Oh, I thought I've made a friend.
He should be known as "Guy Who You Feel Sorry For All The Time." He is still great.
He's In barely any episodes! He needs to be in more!
Drinking has ruined my life. I'm 31 years old!
I can relate to this guy even though I don't drive a bus, he's cool and he can play the guitar cool too!
Got to be the most coolest Simpsons character he's always high, he plays the guitar as well as enjoys heavy metal and He's a school bus driver
What an Awesome role model
Bring on the stoned bus driver!
Defiantly best moments of him!
He's sweet but Homer must've ruined his life by introducing him to drink Duff beer. Then, after so long, he goes sober in one episode. I feel bad for him. Otherwise, he is hilariously awesome!
The non retarded human version of Barney the dinosaur!
I really think that barney gumble is sweet...
The only Barney that is dumber and drunker than him is Barney the Dinosaur
Laugh out loud so funny, "you can take spider pig with you! " "he's not spider pig anymore, he's harry plopper" OINK!
Spider pig spider pig who is the favorite spider thing. He also Harry Potter I don't know why. I love that movie!
Go spider pig! He was awesome in the movie, and his cameos are the best!
Spider pig! Spider pig!
You really feel for Skinner.
His boss hates him and his own mother (not really his mother) doesn't give him the time of day, just because she mistook him as her son when he came to tell her what had happened to her real son.
Probably my favourite Simpsons character because he's pretty damn amusing. Not only that but I can relate to him a lot. Especially when he tries to please his mother. Also, steamed hams is the funniest scene in the show.
Skinner seems to always be that one character people are meant to laugh at. However, I think his pain of wanting to make his mother proud and upholding his values in his workplace make him a relatable character. While I love Bart's character as well, there were times I felt bad for this imaginary principal, which goes to show just how believable these characters' lives are.
Skinner is awesome with the Motorcycle and amazing at leading the school for a very long time. Perhaps a best character of the show as well. Otto is awesome with the bus, Wiggum is good at funny police guy. Another to mention is the neighbor Flanders. Should post private except they connect with Skinner well and the whole works quite well in Springfield.
