The 10 Best Sitcom Characters of All Time May Surprise You

Awe, man, this is a tough one. Do you have an all-time favorite sitcom character? Recently someone asked, “Who is the best sitcom character of all time?” The internet responded by delivering this list of fabulous fictional characters in the sitcoms we love.

Douglas Reynholm From The IT Crowd

“Agreed, Matt Berry steals the show in everything he's in, whether in Mighty Boosh, Garth Marenghi's Dark Place, or even his performance in What We Do in the Shadows, one user stated.

Abed Nadir From Community

“I love Ron Swanson too, but Abed is not only an extremely unique character, but his perspectives are what gave us so many of the non-traditional sitcom episodes in Community, which is why it's my favorite. Abed is best,” one user admitted.

Dwight Schrute From The Office

“His arc goes from absolutely hate-able, tolerable, to a friend, to an annoying psychopath. His development was entertaining to watch, and the writing for him was superb,” admitted one Redditor.

Ron Swanson From Parks and Recreation

Many users agreed that Ron Swanson from Parks and Rec was the man. One user quoted him, “Wait! I'm worried that what you heard was, give me a lot of bacon and eggs. What I said was, give me all the bacon and eggs you have.”

Red and Kitty Forman From That 70s Show

We have a tie. Red and Kitty Forman take the number five spot together. “I'm making my husband watch That 70s Show 'cause he never saw it during its run. I freakin love Red and Kitty, Red especially,” a user stated. 

Captain Holt From Brooklyn Nine-Nine

“In my opinion, that show has a mix of the most fantastic characters ever vs. the most annoying characters ever. Captain Holt is the greatest,” one user expressed.

Lucille Bluth From Arrested Development

“Lucille Bluth. She stole every scene she was in a testament to how well they wrote her character and Jessica Walter's performance,” one commenter.
