    The Simpsons character matches

    I want to try a game thats not another Hurt & Heal or even a game where we rate episodes.... this time we rate the CHARACTERS. I'm not sure if this has been done before and if there was enough interest, but I think its fun to discuss something different other then episodes. Lets see if we can debate on characters for once

    So the game is that we come up with 2 characters for each match, and you vote which character you like more or think its better. Similiar like the ''The Simpsons episode matches'' and ''Simpsons vs South Park''.

    Some ground rules:

    - A character needs to have atleast 6 votes to win. If it takes way too long to get it, you may make a new match
    - Try to come up with 2 characters that are about equally as popular, so for example you cannot make a Bart vs Mel Gibson match. Quest stars can only be put against other quest stars.
    - (OPTIONAL) It may be helpfull to post pictures of the characters for your match, since not everyone can recognise certain characters without knowing how they look.
    - You may use characters more then 1 time, but not against the same character he faced in an earlier match.

    I'll also keep all the matches being made in this first post. I'll highlight the name green when he won, and highlight the other red when he lost.

    Wow, this is hard.
    I think I'll take Ned Flanders, since he's just a perfect parody of the overly conservative Christians and is so wonderfully bizzarre and complex.

    This might be hard because some characters, such as Flanders, have changed so much that they're almost nothing like what they were before. So maybe the era should be specified?

    They're both really funny characters, but I'll give it to Ned. He's most of the time simply hilarious, while Krusty can get annoying pretty quick. Can't say I like both of them in the HD era.

    Ned Flanders: 3

    Krusty The Clown: 1

    Neither are that funny in the hd-era but speaking of the overall series, Flanders is funnier and most likely a more interesting character.

    Flanders all the way simply hilarious. krusty had a lot of potential in the 1st decade but something changed about him that i cant quite put my finger on

    Strictly speaking the classic era: Ned Flanders. His perfect neighbour routine can provide a lot of laughs and I just love the episodes which focus around his relationship with Homer.

    Ned Flanders: 6
    Krusty the Clown: 1
    Season 1: The humble beginnings -- Seasons 2-8: The classic era -- Season 9: The first season where noticeable flaws began to appear -- Season 10: The last decent season -- Season 11: The first BAD season -- Season 12: The last season with episodes worth watching -- Seasons 13-Present: Zombie Simpsons

    I like how Sideshow Mel has developed from a background gag character to saying funny, intelligent one-liners since "Who Shot Mr. Burns? (Part One)" but considering how much Moe has been developed since the beginning, there really is no competition as far I'm concerned. Although when compared to Krusty and Ned he hasn't had the number of episodes based around him, but he has played a part in a number of key episodes and great gags.

    Moe: 2
    Mel: 0

    While I'm not the biggest fan of Moe, he's still a much better character then Sideshow Mel. He has gotten a lot more screentime and episodes, he shows great characterisation as a really miserable person. Mel may be a great poet but it doesn't do much to me, but some of his lines when he's yelling at a crowd of people are really good. He's basically the punchbag for Krusty, but a pretty funny one see'ing as he has some other talent aswell.

    Moe: 3
    Mel: 0

    I demand royalties, Kaine!

    The first one is a no-brainer. Ned Flanders is one of my favorite characters, while Krusty's burnt-out manner is kind of annoying sometimes. As for this one, Mel has always been "the guy with a funny voice to say things on behalf of a mob," while Moe is a real staple of the show and one of my favorite characters.

    Moe: 4
    Mel: 0

    No competition here. Moe is one of my favorite characters while Mel is a character who has some good lines but aren´t anything too special overall.

    I'm one of the few people who actually like Mel, but compared to Moe? No way he can win that. Moe is one of my top 10 favourite characters.

    Comic Book Guy has had more development, but I almost always laugh at Frink.

    Sideshow Mel is amusing with his occasional witty one-liner, but when over-used, he's annoying. Moe's always classic though. I even like the silly suicide jokes centered around him (not including the awkward ending from "Whiskey Business")

    Moe: 7
    Sideshow Mel: 0

    Comic Book Guy: 0
    Professor Frink: 3

    There isn't one single time where Frink hasn't had me roaring with laughter.

    Very hard, since they're both such excellent characters. Overall, though, CBG wins out.

    I almost never laughed with Frink and I don't like his laugh, it's like a Dr. Hibbert 2.0, but in less funny.
    CBG is great, has a good development overall, managed to be actually good in a season-25 episode, and allows many references. He represents nerds and he does it well.
    Currently re-watching all of the show, from Season 26 backwards. So far :
    Seasons Ranking : 23 > 26 > 22 > 24 > 25

    Best and Worst from each season :
    S21 (so far) : The Devil Wears Nada / None so far..
    S22- Angry Dad: The Movie / How Munched is That Birdie in the Window?.
    S23- Holidays of Future Passed / Moe Goes From Rags To Riches.
    S24- A Test Before Trying / Love is a Many-Splintered Thing.
    S25- Brick Like Me / What to Expect When Bart's Expecting.
    S26- I Won't Be Home For Christmas / The Man Who Came to Be Dinner.

    I like Frink and his jokes, but Comic Book Guy's jokes are brilliant and add another dimension of Simpsons gags.

    Both funny characters but CBG probably produces the more laughs overall.

    The first close match... they're both really good but I'll have to go for CBG. He plays out the sterotypical nerd pretty well, and has a lot of pretty good episodes, I'm not sure how I feel of him marrying Kumiko though. Frink is more used to set up gimmicky episodes, but as a character we don't see enough of him. He's still really funny, but CBG is slightly better.

    I actually prefer Frink as a person compared to Comic Book Guy and it's not just to get the votes tied up...

    That was a close match, but CBG wins in the end. I don't expect to get many more votes now, so on to the next match:

    Match #4

    Apu Nahasapeemapetilon VS. Mr. Burns




    Apu Nahasapeemapetilon: 0
