A survey by Entertainment Weekly has named Homer Simpson the greatest character created for television or film in the past 20 years. Everyone’s favorite beer-swilling, donut-eating dad beat out Harry Potter and Buffy the Vampire Slayer for the top spot. From the article: “‘People can relate to Homer because we’re all secretly propelled by desires we can’t admit to,’ Groening was quoted as telling Entertainment Weekly. ‘Homer is launching himself head-first into every single impulsive thought that occurs to him. His love of whatever … is a joy to witness.’”
