EWB's List of Favorite Simpsons Characters: Voting Thread


Recommended Posts

So, yeah. Not sure it's been done before (I know there's a list by Sousa on fav episodes), but if it has, fuck it, I wasn't around then :shifty:

Normal shit applies, and they are as below:

1. Vote for your top TEN favorite characters from the Simpsons. The TV show. So don't put Jessica Simpson in your list. I don't know why I said that. Your 1st place vote is your favorite, your 2nd place vote your second favorite, so on and so forth.

2. Even if it's a duo or something (ie. Patty and Selma), they'll be counted individually, so vote for one character per voting place.

3. 1st place votes get 10 points, 2nd place 9 points, 3rd place 8 points, so on and so forth.

4. Do lists have so many rules? I don't remember.

5. This result of this list may be rigged to allow Apu to win.

So yeah, vote away guys, and have fun discussing how everyones' voting sucks barring Sousa's. And possibly GoGo's.

Incidentally, Homer Simpson would have been in the top ten based on the strength of the early episodes, but he's just lost too much dignity over the seasons...

Homer Simpson

lost too much dignity


OK, he never had dignity in the conventional sense, but in the earlier episodes, while he was stupid, it was born more out of innocence rather than anything. For example, in the first ever episode, Homer tries to be a shopping mall Santa, and predictably it doesn't work out. Then, he blows the money he did earn from the job on greyhound racing. But he does all that because he's trying to help his family buy Christmas presents, and in his mind that was the best way to go about it.

Compare this with, say, the series 11 episode where Bart creates a comic book about Homer's anger problems. In the climax, Homer walks into a trap Bart set for him, gets hit with a ton of used nappies/diapers, and then falls into some paint. Not because of any need to help his family or something along those lines, but because he's silly, stupid, manchild Homer. Or when Homer gets a new job for the millionth time- at first, it's believable and quite sweet to see Homer getting excited about some sort of new scheme and failing at it, but eventually, you get sick of him getting new jobs again and again, and failing time after time. So that's what I'm referring to with the loss of dignity.
