Live Face-Off Poll: Homer Simpson vs. Peter Griffin

These are two of the most beloved animated TV fathers of long-running cartoons. Each has the responsibility of being the man of the house to rather unconventional families. So pinning these two iconic characters against one another, which buffoonish dad reigns supreme?

Maybe you should just ask for "favorite", I'm a fan of Homer Simpson anyway but from the way you asked the question, I feel like even a Family Guy fan can still answer Homer.

I don't know ElM, when I think of a cartoon fatty Peter comes to mind first. I'm not sure if asking 'favorite' vs. 'reigning supreme' will change the outcome much, considering people generally opt for their favorites. I just like the phrasing of the question becomes it introduces the face-off well in my opinion.

But I appreciate your feedback and will consider it :)

No problem, I just thought that the Simpsons' reputation and legacy, being what they are, would make even the most hardcore FG fan concede the 'undeniability' of Homer's reign over Peter's. I mean, Still, I might be wrong and... surprised by the results.

While Homer is far from my favorite Simpsons character, he is still funny, memorable, and surprisingly tragic. "Family Guy" is not a particularly funny show, and I find Petter annoying rather than funny.

Homer, although Peter is a really good character, as well. 'Good match-uo.

I love the intro for this face-off but I'm wondering if the word "fatty" might be a problem. To me, it seems like you mean it very affectionately but, to some voters who don't know you and might be sensitive with that issue, it might seem to be somewhat pejorative, even unintentionally so. What do you think about changing it to something else? I know "dad" might sound a little boring, and it certainly doesn't have to be that, but if you feel comfortable changing it to something else, it's an idea.

Kyle,

In the context of this poll "fatty" may be OK, but some may still find the term offensive.

Rather than "fatty" you might use the word "buffoon" or phrase "buffoonish dad".

Ruby, 

Thank you for the suggestion. Yeah, I totally would never say "fatty" in a pejorative manner, I thought it was something funny that linked the two cartoon icons :) But it'll be changed nonetheless, I wouldn't want to offend anyone unintentionally, that ain't the intent of any of our polls. 

Dan,

I like "buffoonish dad"; it's silly and sums them up well. That will be used in substitution of the word "fatty". 

Thank you guys both, your help is greatly appreciated!
