Most underrated or favorite Simpsons character?
« on: July 29, 2020, 07:19:56 AM »
Who's yours? I felt this might be a fun, lighthearted thread. One that shouldn't lead to arguments or the need for immediate follow up responses.

No rules. Could be main characters, side ones, animals, mascots, or one offs. Anything goes.

Id have to say, in no order:

-Maggie
-Lou
-Poochie
-Moleman

Those are some of my favorites that I feel are all underrated in their own little way.

Who are your personal favorites, or just underrated characters in your opinion? There are so many good ones.

Kirk Van Houten might be one of the funniest characters that has the least amount of critical screen time.

Did any of you guys ever notice that if you took off the end "er" from his name, moved the "b" to after the "i" and then added an "l" to the "b" that you just moved, you'd spell "Bible"?

Every scene with Mulder and Scully in this episode was absolute gold.

The fact that David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson actually voiced them makes it all the sweeter.

What a wonderful idea for a thread!

Chief Wiggum is consistently great, although his incompetent cop shtick gets old in the later years.

Mark Hammill as himself is one of my favorite guest appearances.

I agree with the guy above, all of Phil Hartman's characters were great. Lionel Hutz always gets me. I love the episode when he is babysitting the kids, and it cuts to a shot of him burning all of his stuff in the fireplace. Lisa asks, "Mr. Hutz, why are you burning your stuff?" And he replies, "The man you know as Lionel Hutz is no more. Say hello to Miguel Sanchez!"  ;D  ;D ;D

I could go on an on so I'll stop.

That scene at Moe's also reminded me how good Moe actually is. Definitely underrated.

All of Moe's backroom shenanigans are great. I love when he's releasing the pandas: "Andalé, andalé!" @ 1:15

YESS I was just coming back to talk about Gabbo, hahah.

Probably my favorite one-off catchphrase of the entire series. Specifically at :55 when Mayor Quimby uses Gabbo's catchphrase as an alibi:

The random Charles Bronson bits in the Simpsons are underrated I feel. The 'Dis aint ova' bit always makes me giggle.

Adam West as OG Batman - I like to believe he just turned up and started doing unscripted lines, and the animators edited around him. RIP Mayor West.

So many good characters:

The Sea Captain.

Lisa's teacher is a babe.

And I thought Otto was the coolest guy on the planet when I was younger.

I love when people bring up world hunger. It makes everything meaningless.

"Who cares? there are people starving to death! besides, how does that affect you? does it lessen the joy of parking?
