    Homer Simpson is the main protagonist of the long-running American animated sitcom The Simpsons. Unfortunately, he had been flanderized and out of character from seasons 11B to 30, but redeemed himself in season 31.

    "D'oh!" Qualities

    Note: This only applies to his character as depicted in seasons 11b-30 of The Simpsons, as he was flanderized.

    1. He has been flanderized from a stupid yet lovably eccentric man-child into a moronic selfish jerk who physically abuses his son Bart (mainly by choking him) just for backtalking at him, lies to and steals from his own family, is frequently selfish and greedy with the impulse control of a sack of weasels, and effectively an alcoholic in denial, becoming intoxicated on an almost episodic basis, while all the time oblivious of why this might not be acceptable behavior.
      • In fact, his flanderization only got worse by season 16, as he lost any emotional control, running out of the room or bursting into tears or throwing an angry fit on a regular basis.
    2. His stupidity has been off his character to the point where it just comes off as annoying and sad rather than charming at times. 
    3. Most of the time, while nowhere near as horrible as modern Peter Griffin, he can be very abusive and uncaring to his family and will even go as far as to betray them in horrible ways:
      1. One of the worst examples of this is in "Co-Dependent's Day", in which he frames his own wife for drunk driving.
        • To make matters worse, he received little to no comeuppance for what he did, thus making him a karma houdini.
      2. In "Papa Don't Leech", there was a scene where Homer imagined himself suffocating his father to death; thankfully, it was only an imagination scene, but the fact that he wants his own father dead is a very horrifying thought.
      3. In the movie, he wrapped his father in a carpet after his father had a meltdown at church and locked him in the car while he was in that carpet. He dared Bart to go to the Krusty Burger and back naked which got Bart handcuffed to a pole and Nelson to laugh at Bart for hours and he also got the entire town of Springfield trapped in a dome by dumping a silo which contaminated the lake.
    4. Ironically, his relationship with Ned Flanders is zigzagged. He started off resentful and jealous towards Flanders if in a passive-aggressive sort of way. Starting in season 6, he became more and more obsessively hateful towards Flanders and was obsessed with making a fool of him. This toned down greatly after Maude's death (likely because there was little way of having him torment a mourning Flanders without crossing into out-and-out vile territory), his treatment of Ned is finally more like a playful rivalry or even just a case of innocently insensitive, and it's about time it has toned down because it almost had Homer take a step too far.
    5. While Dan Castellaneta still does a good job voicing him, he can sound very annoying at some points since it might be whiny to groaning.
    6. And when he's not being selfish, he's treated like a Butt-Monkey. Examples include "Homer vs. Dignity" and "Love Is a Many Strangled Thing".
    7. As stated in the BQ#2, his mean-spirited nature can sometimes be unfunny and just sad.
    8. He is openly shown to hate Bart, to the point he tried to abandon him on a car with a stranger once, and prefer Lisa over him, proudly claiming her as his favorite child. Sure, Bart is a troublemaker and Lisa is better behaved than him but preferring one child over the other is bad parenting. Plus, the reason why Bart is a troublemaker in the first place is because Homer gives all attention to Lisa simply because she shows more talent, while Bart gets little to no appreciation from his father.
      • Plus, when Bart refused to accept Jimbo's challenge to sabotage Lisa's project, showing he is a good brother, Homer claimed he did wrong and that a true man always accepts a challenge, regardless of who gets hurt. Not only is that a terrible advice that shows how Homer can be both a horrible father and an awful person, but it reaches the point where it almost gets Bart killed.
    9. In "The Ziff Who Came to Dinner", while this can be seen as hilarious, he takes Bart, Lisa, Rod and Todd to a horror movie, because "scaring kids is good for them".
    10. Similar to his son Bart, in many episodes that involve him being in a conflict with something, Homer's mostly portrayed like he's in the wrong of the conflict.
    11. In "MyPods and Boomsticks" he made racist comments towards a Muslim family and worst of all he tried to kill them with a toxic American flag cake because he thought they were terrorists. He even blew up the bridge that one of them were trying to do.

    "Woo-Hoo!" Qualities

    1. He was still a far more likable and funny character in the first eleven and half seasons and has massively redeemed himself since season 31.
    2. He does apologize whenever he does something wrong to Marge, in episodes like "Bonfire at the Manatees".
    3. Even though his characterization was gone from grace, he still cares about his family and his friends.
    4. There are still a handful episodes where he is likeable and has his original personality, such as "Brick Like Me", "Eternal Moonshine of the Simpson Mind", "Simpsorama", "Halloween of Horror", etc. Depending on your view, he, along with Bart, is still likable and memorable in these seasons.
    5. His "D'oh!" catchphrase is still funny.
      • On top many others are too, and he does still have a handful of funny moments in these seasons of The Simpsons.
    6. He does reconcile with Bart after his arguments with him.
    7. As stated above in BQ#6, Dan Castellaneta still does a good job voicing him.
    8. Like many of the other characters, his design is still very iconic.
