I don't know. I love how desperate and utterly unstable Zoidberg's poor standing makes him at times. Particularly in Three Hundred Big Boys. I think it has plenty of life in it still in the hands of writers who are actually talented.
Bender reminds me a lot of Bart in the early years of The Simpsons (like Joel said), especially insomuch as the show shouldn't focus on him as much as it does. His shtick gets old so quickly... Bender Should Not Be Allowed on TV is borderline unwatchable for me at this point and any episode that has him constantly dancing annoys the shit out of me.
bender dancing is often hilarious in small doses, but when he danced all the way through rebirth it got old extremely fast.
I love Dr. Zoidberg, but I will say that his gags are kind of "same ol', same ol'". At one point he used to be my favourite character, but unfortunatley, not anymore. I'll still continue to love him and feel sorry for the poor guy.
I always hated Dr Zoidberg. I never, ever found funny anything he ever said. Plus his face kinda disgusts me...
I moved here from Canada, and they think I'm slow, eh?
The opinion ''Zoidberg is overrated'' is overrated.
Looking for an overrated character?
In all seriousness, though, of the few episodes of Futurama I've seen, Zoidberg made me laugh the most. So he'd have to be my favourite.
Zoidberg's a good character to have in the background but he's too one-dimensional to have an episode based on him. (although Why Must I Be and Tip of the Zoidberg were decent episodes in my book)
So I agree and disagree at the same time?

Zoidberg is hilarious. An alien doctor knowing nothing about human anatomy sounds like a premise that could get old really fast, but they manage to keep those jokes fast and always hilarious.

I like how utterly demolished by public opinion I was by the second post in this thread. I kind of knew it would happen, but the magnitude of it is kind of amusing. Pwned.
I still support the basic point of the thread, but I'll grant that Zoidberg has been actually written a little more consistently since the reboot. They've been giving him different things to do, like being the focal point of the yeti episode, having a rivalry with Clamps (which was the only good part of that episode), and trying to be a father figure to Cubert.
Most improved character.

Hey Zoidberg, get in here!
Agreed, Zoidberg is a stupid and overrated character.
Everybody's a jerk. You, me, this jerk. That's my philosophy.
He's hardly overrated he and the Prof. always give me the most laughs. If it's any character that's overrated it's Bender and Morbo..... I love Bender a LOT but I feel the humor comes naturally to Zoidberg and Farnsworth where Bender it seems like the writers try to hard sometimes and a lot of the time his jokes are cringe-worthy.
Depends on the episode.
"A shark on whiskey is mighty risky.. but a shark on beer.. is a beer engineer."
How can you not laugh at the crazy-ass noises Zoidberg makes? He's a ugly, poor, pathetic, crustacean-like alien doctor with a hint of Judaism whats not to like?
Now onto Roger from A.D!
He's the most overrated alien.
