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.

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.

He's easily the best. - Fireboy

That's what I call my testicles - SpectralOwl

2 Kenny (South Park)

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

3 Tom (Tom and Jerry) Tom (Tom and Jerry) Thomas "Tom" Cat is a fictional character and one of the title characters in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's series of Tom and Jerry theatrical cartoon short films.

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!

So true, I liked Tom better than I liked jerry when I watched this show when I was younger.

Am I the only one that hates jerry for all the crap he puts tom through? - taishisohma

4 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.

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

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

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

5 Gary the Snail (SpongeBob SquarePants) Gary the Snail (SpongeBob SquarePants) Gerald "Gary" Wilson Jr. is a fictional character who is a pet snail owned by SpongeBob SquarePants in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.
6 Vinny (Family Guy)

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.

He had so much potential... two episodes later Brains back... yay

Always liked him more than Brian anyway - Animeme

7 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

8 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.

This character is completely hilarious

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.

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.

I don't watch the show, but I don't like his annoying voice. - mac2

Ill tell you hwat. It's asinine that they cancelled this show for that dang Cleveland show. Just assinine!

The Newcomers

? The Pink Panther The Pink Panther

Seems like he is not high on favorites lists these days, probably because of underexposure in later years. T.V. Guide even left him off their best cartoon characters list altogether - a noticeable omission! - giddyjoker

? BoBoiBoy (BoBoiBoy/BoBoiBoy Galaxy) BoBoiBoy (BoBoiBoy/BoBoiBoy Galaxy)

The Contenders

11 Chowder (Chowder)

Chowder Isn't Underrated, And Neither Is His Show.

I'm the only one who finds the show underrated?

12 Mr. Krabs (SpongeBob SquarePants) Mr. Krabs (SpongeBob SquarePants) Eugene H. Krabs, or simply Mr. Krabs, is a fictional character in the American animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants.

Everyone seems to hate him because of One Coarse Meal, but he was mostly good and a really funny character in seasons 1-3. Definitely my favorite

Deserves the hate - ChuckECheese

27 Bart Simpson (The Simpsons) Bart Simpson (The Simpsons) Bart is the oldest child in The Simpsons. He was created by Matt Greoning. His hobbies are pranking people including Lisa Simpson and Homer Simpson.

Are you kidding? How is Bart underrated? Every single character on that show is overrated, by fans AND the writers themselves. - mac2

28 Randy Cunningham (Randy Cunningham 9th Grade Ninja) Randy Cunningham (Randy Cunningham 9th Grade Ninja) Randall "Randy" Cunningham is a main protagonist in Disney XD show, Randy Cunningham 9th Grade Ninja .

Stop hating this puppy! - RalphBob

32 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.

33 Ilana (Sym-Bionic Titan)
34 Lucas Bortner (The Simpsons)
35 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.

36 Millhouse (The Simpsons)
37 Meg (Family Guy)

She deserves better, shut up Peter!

She should be in the top 10!
She's not even ugly, she's an average.

Meg Griffin is HOT

. Too underrated. She is awesome!

38 Link (Legend of Zelda (TV Series)) Link (Legend of Zelda (TV Series)) Link refers to several different incarnations of the same protagonist of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.

This poor Link is hated on for the stupidest reasons you can imagine. He is hated for having brown hair (Ahem, look at Twilight Princess and Zelda II Link! ), the ability to talk (Link's meant to have a fill-in-the-blank personality. Plus, Link would HAVE to talk in a movie anyways. CD-I Link is also hated for this reason. ), begging for a kiss nonstop (It's Zelda's fault for not kissing him for saving her, which probably caused this behavior in the first place. Give him the kiss already if it bothers you, Zel! ), and his catchphrase "(Well/Hey! ) Excuse me, princess! " (It's not his fault Zelda's such a jerk).

39 Georgia (Pokemon)
40 Manny Rivera (El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera)
41 Sandy (Spongebob Squarepants)
42 Arlene (Garfield) Arlene (Garfield) Arlene is Garfield's girlfriend. She is a pink, slim, beautiful stray cat with big red lips. Arlene and Garfield doesn't always get along, but she knows that he cares about her. And she cares about him as well. more.

Why is Garfield's girlfriend so underrated? I like her, a lot! - Svampbob164

43 Lazlo (Camp Lazlo!) Lazlo (Camp Lazlo!)
44 Scrappy Doo Scrappy Doo Scrappy Doo is the nephew of Scooby Doo. Unlike his uncle Scooby, Scrappy is brave enough to face the monsters.

He really should be at number 1.

Sure some could find his catchphrases "puppy power" and "let me at 'em" really really extremely annoying.
But I have always thought he was a cute little puppy.
I just ignore the evil Scrappy he would never attempt to murder his Uncle, that's out of character and was just to get rid of him.


45 Princess Bubblegum (Adventure Time) Princess Bubblegum (Adventure Time) Princess Bonnibel Bubblegum of the Candy Kingdom is a fictional character in the Adventure Time animated series on the Cartoon Network.
46 Penn Zero (Penn-Zero: Part-Time Hero)
47 Road Runner (Looney Tunes) Road Runner (Looney Tunes)

Don't really see him a lot in the Looney tunes that much

48 Akira Kogami (Lucky Star)
49 Pig Pen (Charlie Brown)

he was always really cool... he didn't care what people thought of him... he would just be dirty and happy. - jwileson

He shouldn't be underrated. He is the person who never cares about what others think. I love Pig-pen!

How is Bubbles more underrated than Buttercup? Buttercup is more underrated, Bubbles is overrated.

Are you kidding me, bubbles is the most overrated ppg.
