List Rules All minor and major characters from The Simpsons. Vote for your favorite resident of Springfield, regardless of how beloved they are by others.

The Simpsons is not only one of the longest running TV shows of all time, it also has one of the largest casts of characters. The city of Springfield has been populated by a countless number of hilarious residents. With such a great cast of characters, it's tough to say who the greatest character on The Simpsons really is without everybody weighing in on the discussion.

This list ranges from major characters like Homer Simpson and Mr. Burns to obscure and minor characters including Dr. Nick and Disco Stu. Some of these characters, like Bart, have been featured on every episode of The Simpsons. Other characters on this list, like the unforgettable Frank Grimes, only appeared once. Vote for your favorite Simpsons characters and help make this list the ultimate source for who the best characters of the show are. 

All Simpsons characters may be cartoons, but the voice actors truly bring them to life. Are you a fan of Phil Hartman’s character work as Troy McClure and Lionel Hutz? Do you love over-the-top villains like Albert Brooks’ Hank Scorpio and Kelsey Grammer’s Sideshow Bob? 

Of the many Simpsons characters, who is the fan favorite of the bunch? Vote up your favorite residents of Springfield and vote down the characters in the Simpsons you think should get erased.
