Let’s just say these characters aren’t the smartest crayon in the box.

Moreover, our scope was broader than that. Characters in animated shows typically aren’t very savvy. Perhaps the executives believe the audience enjoys dumb characters because the target demographic consists primarily of children.

Let me be honest. Characters who get into all sorts of mischief for no other reason than being complete idiots are always some of my favourites. On the other hand, there are times when I want my characters to act naturally.

Even though that’s sometimes asking too much of animated comedies like “Family Guy,” “The Simpsons,” and “Bob’s Burgers.” I will give Bob’s Burgers some credit where credit is due; the show’s characters are among the most enlightened of any animated fare.

That’s why we’re going to rank the main characters from “least” to “most” intelligent. So, please, scroll down and have a look.

#10 Teddy Francisco.

To put it simply, Teddy is a funny idiot. Although he backs Bob 100% in everything he does. We love him despite the fact that he doesn’t know very much about anything. He will always have my back.

#9 Aunt Gayle.

The woman, all alone, craved companionship. This is Aunt Gayle, and she isn’t very cunning in her schemes to abduct her sisters.

#8 Gene Belcher.

Nothing new can be said about Gene, right? Let’s just say he’s more of a creative than a practical person. He may have good intentions when it comes to helping his sisters, but he is usually more of a hindrance than a help.

#7 Jimmy Pesto, Sr.

The boss of a restaurant that has been around longer and is more popular than Bob’s Burgers. Also, hold your horses if you think Jimmy is a successful businessman. That’s not how it works at all. I guess we can chalk it up to pure luck.

#6 Linda Belcher.

The Lindas in everyone’s lives are the secret to their partners’ “somewhat” successful lives. Bob would be nothing without Linda’s assistance, even if she isn’t the brightest member of the family. When he is feeling down, he can always count on her to be there for him.

#5 Bob Belcher.

Some of Bob’s ideas may be brilliant, but they often come in spurts. Bob is an excellent home cook and devoted husband. What about the businessman? This is not the best. Maybe he needs to learn to control his enthusiasm a little.

#4 Phillip Frond.

We must remember that he is dealing with children like Gene, so his selfishness may be understandable. Perhaps he would have had more success as a teacher in a more “typical” institution.

#3 Mort.

In general, Mort is a trustworthy individual. While he is always there for Bob, he is also actively trying to promote his services as a mortician. He’s not as over-the-top as some of the other characters, but that’s part of what makes him memorable.

#2 Louise Belcher.

He or she is the family sage. The definition of a wild child in a single word. Louise. You should avoid getting on her bad side at all costs.

#1 Tina Belcher.

Was there even a need to ask that? Even though some of you may think Louise is qualified for this position. Though it was a tough call, I ultimately decided on Tina. Perhaps her wit is not as over the top as Louise’s.

However, she does so in a way that is understated and fitting of her character.
