Top 10 The Simpsons Characters Who Deserved Better

Characters from The Simpsons who deserved so much better then what they were given.
The Top Ten
1 Frank Grimes

The original Squidward Tentacles a guy whose had no breaks in life and faced with nothing but misery whose had to struggle for everything in life only to have very little to show for it and is outraged that someone like Homer Simpson who does the bare minimal to get through life and has had way more success then him which drives him insane as he tries to prove to everyone that that's not how life is suppose to work as people are suppose to be rewarded for their hard work and people who do very little shouldn't be given so much as he tries to prove to everyone how much of an idiot Homer is only for everyone to continue overlook Homer's stupidity and praise him which drives Frank over the edge as he has a total meltdown and eventually kills him self.

2 Apu Nahasapeemapetilon

Aside from being shot at on a number of occasions in recent years Apu as a character has been seen as controversial by some following the documentary "The Problem with Apu" and as a result the shows creators took the easy way out and simply removed him from the show.

This is an example unlike Grimes, Moleman, Maude, Mona, Murphy, Lumpkin, etc. He got messed up via real life. Sad.

3 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".

Another unlucky resident of Springfield who is consonantly having bad things happen to him such as getting drilled in the head, set on fire, run off the road and had his car explode, trapped in a bubble and even taken a football to the groin.

4 Maude Flanders

Was killed off in the season 11 episode "Alone Again, Natura-Diddily" in possibly one of the most unexpected and insulting ways possible after being hit a t-shirt cannon that was aimed at Homer who was distracted by a bobby pin and after ducking Maude is hit and knocked over the edge of the bleachers to her death and this was all the result of Maude's voice actress Maggie Roswell leaving the show over a pay dispute.

5 Mona Simpson

One of the few positive things in Homer's life Mona was a lot more loving and caring then Abe she was later forced to go into hiding and leave Homer after being identified by Mr. Burns after she and some protesters destroy his germ lab and even though she later reunited with Homer her visit is short lived as she is still being hunted by Mr. Burns and is forced to leave again and later in "My Mother the Carjacker" she again reunited with Homer before being arrested and later acquitted for her crime as is finally allowed to be with Homer and the family only for Mr. Burns to once again have her arrested after he tricks her into revealing that she used fake names in the visitor books of various theme parks while she was on the run which is apparently a federal offense as as sadden Homer loses his mother yet again and even after he tries to break her out she later fakes her death and force to go back to hiding again.

6 Bleeding Gums Murphy

One of the first few people in Lisa's life who was a positive influence who in the episode "Round Springfield" Murphy dies and Lisa is the only one sadden about it and the only one along with her family who attend his funeral as no one else not even his own family seem to care which leads to Lisa to want to honor his memory by getting her hands on his one and only record so she can play it over the radio which she succeeds, in a later Simpsons special there was a quiz before the commercial that ask which popular Simpsons characters have died in the past and the answer was of course Bleeding Gum's Murphy and Dr. Marvin Monroe at which the announcer states is wrong as they were never popular.

7 Lurleen Lumpkin

First appearing in the episode "Colonel Homer" a former country singer whose career tanked shortly after Homer left as her manager due it being such a strain on his marriage to Marge , in the follow up episode "Papa Don't Leech" she is hunted down by everyone in Springfield over tax evasion as its revealed that she's hot rock bottom, never got over Homer and found herself in one bad relationship after another and that her father abandoned her which is why she gave up on all men and why she was so attached to Homer when he was her manager as he was possibly the first man in her life who ever gave her any positive attention this then leads to Marge to find Lurleen's father and reunite the two and despite the rocky start Lurleen welcomes her father back in her life only for him to later abandon her again and not only that but steals one of her songs and gives it to the Dixie Chicks as their new manager which leads to Lurleen to fall back into her depression until Marge convinces her to confront her father about stealing her song and despite of this things don't seem to get better for Lurleen as the episode ends she immediately falls for another man who looks like Homer who clearly comes off as a total leech.

8 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.

Milhouse is an easy target for just about everyone wither its Bart involving him in a lot of his schemes or being targeted by bullies.

9 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.

Right before Krusty's show was initially cancelled, Krusty literally poured liquid nitrogen down his throat and cracked his butt with a hammer. Ouch.

He needs more screen time. I feel so bad for him. Nothing ever turns out right for him. His wife even left him.

Krusty constantly abuses him both verbally and psychically.

10 Gil Gunderson

Another one of those lovable losers who just can't seem to catch a break but still tries to stay positive.
