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.
