I don't where to draw the line. I suggest the following:

Major: Homer, Bart, Lisa, Marge, Maggie, Monty Burns, Chief Wiggum, Moe, Barney, Flanders, Lovejoy, Skinner, Milhouse, and Krusty.

Minor: Everyone else

Hans Moleman, Cletus, Willie, Sea Cap'n, and Ralph Wiggum, for the regulars.

I know it doesn't count, but I just saw the episode where Marge gets sugar outlawed in Springfield, and they had a character based on Count Chocula (from the cereal) named "Count Fudgula" that nearly made me piss myself. Damn, now I'll be chuckling the rest of the day....

Can you count Marges huge boobs last night as minor characters, lol  Laugh out loud. For those who don't know, I'm refering to last night's hilarious episode.Well if you can count them then those two were definitely my favorite. I also like Krusty, the Duffman, Gil, and the attorney, Mr. Hutz.

I'd just like to say that there is no such thing as a bad character or episode of The Simpsons. One of the best cartoons ever made IMO.

I'd be interesting in knowing how many named characters are on the show. I'll bet there are as many as 50, though I'm too lazy to count.

An extremely minor character: The robot that gets set on fire when Sprinfield riots against science in the angel episode; the townspeople destroy a science museum and set it on fire and out rolls a flaming robot waving its arms around saying in a computerized voice, "Why, why was I programmed to feel pain?"

That had me laughing for 5 minutes

Another good one:
Duffman-"Wait... Duffman having an original thought..... What would Jesus do?"

3. Mr Burns:
Burns-"Ahh another Friday is upon us. Smithers what are you planning to do? Probably something gay no doubt."
Smithers-"What?!?"
Burns-"Yes. Footloose. Fancy-free. Mothers lockup your daughters, Smithers is on the loose."
