Top Ten Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Characters


The Top Ten

1 Will Smith Will Smith

Will did comedy and drama better than any main character of a T.V. show that I've ever seen. He brings the laughs, yet he knows how to make a scene golden like when his father left again without explanation causing Will to just break down for real which is crazy! Deserves an award for that

will smith, I swill smith, what else can be said? he is amazing, he's awesome, sweet, cool, funny, great personality, I mean hey.. will smith, he is great

Will smith is number 1 because he's awesome some of the things he says is really funny

Will came from Philly all the way to Bel Air and literally changed the dynamic of Uncle Phils household. He was so silly and charming to not admire even from first glance.

2 Carlton Banks

All of the cast made the show what it was but Carlton really made the show in my opinion

He's just so funny! He's so sensitive, and he has some incredible dance moves! The carlton dance is legendary, but have you seen him now? He REALLY let himself go...

Has anyone noticed his dancing? He is AMAZING! He is so good. Adding that with his intelligence and corny lines, Alfonso Ribeiro was obviously having fun with the character.

Carlton is the real mvp! Funniest dude ever

3 Uncle Phil or Philip Banks

Come on everyone, Lets help Phil throw Jazz out of his spot.

His evil laugh is one of the best and he's the voice of reason, well a lot of the time.

The comically serious big man of the house. But a great dad nonetheless.

Philip for the win

4 Geoffery Butler

Hands down the funniest character in one of the greatest sitcoms of all time, He also has some of the best quotes in my eyes

Geoffrey's quotes are just too hilarious! Especially when making fun of Uncle Phil!

"Run Geoffery! Fetch Geoffery! Perhaps you'd like me to catch a frisbee with my teeth? " - DaWyteNight

'Why? Do I look like a moron? ' Geoffrey Butler, the Master of all One Liners!

5 Jazz

He's like a younger Dale Gribble. - Akuseru

Jazz stays getting thrown out the house! Laugh out loud

I love Jazz but why is he in front of Uncle Phil?

Jazz is totally the best with a z

6 Aunt Viv or Vivian Banks
7 Ashley Banks


8 Hilary Banks

Spoiled, stupid, and so mean to Geoffery, but still so awesome! - ilovekelly75

Very dumb, yet at the same time, complex

9 Hattie Banks
10 Vy Smith

West philly and her husband ran away

Where is she from & is she married. ?

The Contenders

11 Coach Smiley
12 Tyriq Johnson

It's just awesome how he appears to be a rival of Jazz, also he's HILARIOUS!

13 Lisa Wilkes
14 Nicky or Nicholas Banks
15 Aunt Helen
16 Trevor

"And now on a lighter note, our previous weatherman, jack, has died. "
Chuckle chuckle chuckle.

17 Lou Smith

Can this person be taken off the list, please? I mean Lou neglected his son and left him and never showed up for 14 years and he tries to make himself the good guy and use everyone as scapegoats. Will calling his dad Lou shows he doesn't love him anymore and he deserved it. He may be his biological father, but Uncle Phil is his real father. - EJ0602

OK I hate this guy he actually made me cry when he left Will AGAIN
GAAH but he's a character so I guess he needs to be on here so PLEASE DON'T VOTE because HE MADE ME CRY! - Mushroom99

No way, he is the worst character ever. When he left will again, Will just broke down, And saying you're too scared to be a father is inexcusable to walk out on your child. - Connor360

18 Kellogg Lieberbaum
19 Fred Wilkes

OK, he was only in, like, 2, but it's funny if you notice him! You know that tramp in the pool hall when will gets hustled playing pool? Well, it's not hard to notice unless you have a memory of weird things, but in the episode where will misses out on a basketball scholarship, FRED IS HIS HAIRDRESSER! It was so freaky! I also put tyriq on because he's a legend. "and 10 for his manager! "Sorry, fred quote in the pool hall. Funny. - Mushroom99

20 Janice Smith
21 Max Jakey

Please, don't make me cry. I can't spare the fluid.

22 Claudia

My brother, wake up and smell the playdoh

23 Lola
24 Bobby Lewis
25 Marge
26 Jackie Ames
27 Fred Lomax Jr.
28 Pappy
29 Judge Carl Robertson
