Most Underrated Cartoon Characters


The Top Ten

1 Gene Belcher (Bob's Burgers) Gene Belcher (Bob's Burgers) Gene Belcher is the middle child on the show Bob's Burgers. He loves music and has a Casio keyboard that he uses to write songs and play back fart sounds.

Jesus christ everyone on this show is annoying with all the yelling and gross humour, this show is overrated and this kid is especially annoying

That's what I call my testicles - SpectralOwl

Gene is the most underrated Belcher. Everyone loves Tina and Louise, but Gene is the most adorable, in my opinion. Watch "The Unnatural" and "The Gene and Courtney Show" and then see if you can disagree with me!

How can he not even be on this list? He is funny, adorable, and so underrated.

2 Kenny (South Park)

You think he is underrated because you think the cartoon is as great since sliced bread.

Kenny is shown to be heroic, kind and noble in the show plus he's very loyal to his friends and is an amazing brother to his little sister.

I love him I wish they didn't killed him off all the time but even though he's back he still looks dead to me

Oh my gosh, you just killed Kenny! - Mariomaster63

Tom is best

Tom is the definition of a G. - EvanWellens

Tom is better than jerry. jerry is just annoying. If I were tom I would want to eat him 2! - hooyugjgf

Best show ever, Tom is very funny and always puts himself in trouble. I like him a lot! Go tommy!

4 Ralph Wiggum (The Simpsons) Ralph Wiggum (The Simpsons) Ralph Wiggum is a side character in The Simpsons. He is the son of Chief Wiggum. Ralph is not very smart at all. He is voiced by Nancy Cartwright. Some episodes such as I Love Lisa and This Little Wiggy have him as a major character.

What are all these crappy people doing above ralph?!? He ate his freakin' hand! He flushed a potato down the toilet and crashed through the simpsons living room window and said "I'm a brick". He ran for freakin' president! GO RALPH!
- Oreanta

I love Ralph Wiggum. He is way too good for Lisa. I think they should make an episode dedicated to Ralph. I mean, he's so easy-going, you can say anything to him and he won't mind and he is funny as hell.

let's face it, ralph is the best! in the first 3 series, his voice was boring but it got better.

"The leprechaun told me to burn things"; "Daddy's gun tastes like pennies", Ralph is the best, no questions asked.

5 Squidward Tentacles (SpongeBob SquarePants) Squidward Tentacles (SpongeBob SquarePants) Squidward Tentacles is a fictional character voiced by actor Rodger Bumpass in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

He's my favorite cause I relate to him the most.-.

Definitely the best character in the show. Though, all of the characters are likable.

Wait,he is underrated? - santibros2002

Gross! why did you have to use that pic? that's legitimately one of themoments I wanna throw him in a black hole, great job

6 Death (Family Guy)

Too bad a season 9 episode is th last well see him

Cool guy to be real

I love every epsode with death - DolanDuck1

7 Vinny (Family Guy)

He's actually pretty cool and kind (not going to spoil anything watch the episode Christmas guy but only the first bit)

Just because he replaced Brian, doesn't mean you have to hate him!

For me, I pay less attention to him because he was only around for maybe 4-6 episodes. But nevertheless he was funny and he could have been a change from bland, er, Brian.

Always liked him more than Brian anyway - Animeme

9 Timmy Turner (The Fairly Odd Parents) Timmy Turner (The Fairly Odd Parents) Timothy "Timmy" Tiberius Turner is a ten-year old boy who is a fictional character and the main protagonist of the American animated series The Fairly OddParents created by Butch Hartman for Nickelodeon.

Forget What I Said

OverShadowed By Spongebob and Lincoln Loud and His Sisters

The most underrated character in cartoons. He's funny and heroic. You know you are going to be entertained when you watch a show with Timmy Turner in it. He also for some reason has a certain emotional effect on your soul and affects it to feel happy and content.

He's amazing in every sense of the word. He's extremely clever and funny. Timmy has a heart of gold! He is definitely underrated by all means. He deserves to recieve more positive attention for he is such a positive character.

10 Millhouse (The Simpsons)

The Contenders

11 Hank Hill (King of the Hill) Hank Hill (King of the Hill) Hank Rutherford Hill is a fictional character and the main protagonist on the animated television series King of the Hill.

Funniest SpongeBob Characters alongside SpongeBob

30 Chum Chum (Fanboy and Chum Chum) Chum Chum (Fanboy and Chum Chum)

No f ing way

31 Buttercup (Powerpuff Girls) Buttercup (Powerpuff Girls) She is the one of the three main characters in the show The Powerpuff Girls. She was first created by Craig McCracken in 1992. She has short raven hair and green eyes with a green dress. She is known as the "toughest fighter" for her tomboyish attitude, being aggressive, and her love for fighting crime. more.

Her sister Bubbles steals all the attention from her and is more respected than her, no wonder Buttercup is mean to her. Buttercup is way better than her, the powerpuff girls would not be crimefighters and be able to defeat monsters without her, something that is superior compared to what bubbles did.

She gets more hate than her sisters and she is the least liked. I feel sorry for her. Bubbles is overrated.

What The Freak? Buttercup and Bubbles are so overrated. Do you even want to compare them with Blossom? Blossom is so underrated that they forgot to put her in this list. So sad, she’s my favourite character.

32 Jerry (Rick and Morty)

No he sucks - XtheXlmao

33 Fanboy (Fanboy and Chum Chum) Fanboy (Fanboy and Chum Chum)

Deserves the hate - ChuckECheese

34 Angelo (Angelo Rules) Angelo (Angelo Rules)
35 Riley Daring (The Replacements)
36 Dr. John Zoidberg (Futurama) Dr. John Zoidberg (Futurama)
37 Black Spy (Spy vs Spy)

Why the heck does everyone think that white spy is better than black spy?! Everyone knows black spy is the best!


38 Sparky (The Fairly OddParents) Sparky (The Fairly OddParents)

Sparky is so cute. I honestly think Chloe should be the one to hate, not Sparky.

Stop hating this puppy! - RalphBob

Don't hate him well hate him, but hate Chloe more

39 Jimmy Pesto Jr. (Bob's Burgers)

Kind of a d*c k, but I still like him. - lou4

40 Jeremy Belpois (Code Lyoko)

42 Seymour Skinner (The Simpsons)
43 Sandy (Spongebob Squarepants)
44 Lucas Bortner (The Simpsons)
45 Cedric (Sofia The First)

The only good character in the show. - Discord1

46 Ilana (Sym-Bionic Titan)
47 Professor Hubert Farnsworth (Futurama)
48 Death the Kid (Soul Eater) Death the Kid (Soul Eater)

Think about it, he's always teased for being death's son, then when he beats up the enemies they realize, boy was I wrong. He deserves to be treated better! He's way too awesome to be treated the way he is! - SoulDeathTheKidMaka414

He's actually the most popular Soul Eater character according to two official character popularity polls. Just like Levi.

49 Cosmo (The Fairly Odd Parents) Cosmo (The Fairly Odd Parents) Cosmo is Timmy fairy godfather. He's Wanda's husband and Poof's dad. Cosmo is very immature and stupid, but also very charming and a loving father, godfather and husband.

Cosmo is one of my favorite underrated characters including.

Squidward: Although he's third character in SpongeBob, since SpongeBob's so positive everyone hates Squidward for being a grouchy yet he has many talents that no one cares about.

Cedric: You know the sorcerer from Sofia the First, many don't know him because they only pay attention to the princesses,but he actually has a goal and does many things to help the kingdom.

Beast Boy: You may know him as one of the funnier titans however around Robin and Cyborg he isn't that great, Robin is the sidekick of the really popular Bat man series so he's well known, while Cyborg's in the Justice League.

Skyla: You know the Brony fandom and how popular background ponies became due to them, well this one only got 1 baby toy and a few internet pictures and that was it, she is greatly overshadowed by every pony.

Brock: One of Ash's companions who loved Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny however now nobody knows him ...more

50 Brian (Family Guy)

He is not underrated. I don't even watch the show, and I know the creator and fans all love him. Look at the big fuss when he was "killed off."

I think why people hate this character cause he didn't believe in anything
