List Rules Only characters from TV and Movies, please.

You know them. You hate them. Honestly, I don't even know why these characters exist. Did someone think they were funny? Maybe adorable? Seriously? Like fingernails on a chalkboard, these annoying characters take teeth-gritting perseverance and expert channel-switching to avoid. Usually an attempt at comic relief, these are the characters you can't even love to hate. You just hate them.

Who is the most annoying movie or TV character of all time? We may never know. But this list will help us get a step closer (and let you know which movies and shows to avoid). Do annoying movie characters like Jar Jar Binks make Star Wars not worth watching? Maybe not. But we definitely won't be seeing any spinoff sequels starring the annoying little guy. Is Barney the most annoying TV character ever? Or do you hate Screech more? No one can blame you for finding these characters obnoxious and terrible, but to crown the worst offender, you've got to make your voice heard. Vote for the MOST annoying characters, rank them as you see fit... and be sure to add any that are missing.
