    No Patrick Star?

  2. peter says:

    where is Candy from Two And A Half Men ?

  3. Kay says:

    This list could have been ten times longer- “the dumb one” is one of the oldest tropes in TV history. Kevin from The Office, Kimmy from Full House, Sean from Boy Meets World, Kelso from That 70’s Show, Andy from Parks & Rec….

  4. Matt P says:

    Woody and/or Coach from Cheers?

  5. Joey says:

    Wow, no Rose Nylund from The Golden Girls?

  6. BrightLight says:

    Ahh Ted Baxter, your dumbness knew no bounds.

  7. Eric from Boy Meets World started with some smarts, then turned into quite possibly the dumbest human being on earth. Mr. Squirrels!

  8. Jane says:

    Definitely missing Kelso, he was dubbed the reigning king of stupidest man ever. :p

  9. Tim Devine says:

    You missed out on Zack, Penny’s ex boyfriend and ex husband. After all, he did invent “aapeteasers”.

  10. Tim Devine says:

    3 others, all oldies: Larry, his brother Daryl and his other brother Daryl

  11. aaj says:

    You missed Dewey Crowe, Justified.

  12. ReelPwr says:

    How can you leave out Barbarino from Welcome Back Kotter? He was one of the original dumb guys.

  13. Prankhits says:

    Fair list but there are some other characters that could become great replacements in the countdown, including Patrick Star. BTW, you should allow voting for the most dumbest in the list :)
