6. Eric Cartman – South Park
Eric Cartman is the ultimate bigot. He has that worst of all combinations: Bloated arrogance without confidence.
7. Mr. Burns – The Simpsons
To best appreciate how evil Mr. Burns is it is essential to read the lyrics to "See My Vest" in the "Two Dozen and One Greyhounds" episode; a satire on Cruela DeVille in 101 Dalmatians". Here is an excerpt
Like my loafers? Former gophers –
It was that or skin my chauffeurs,
But a greyhound fur tuxedo
Would be best
8. Muttley – Wacky Races
Muttley, Dick Dastardly's dog, is my choice because, while Mr. Dastardly is a parody of every early 20th century villain, Muttley is unique. His delight in doing evil plus his weird muted snicker make him a satisfying villain.
9. Plankton – Sponge Bob Square Pants
Is Plankton a true villain? He is, yet he is so tiny and, well, so pathetic in his inability to steal the Crabby Patty recipe. Still, he sees himself as a villain and enjoys a good "Wa-ha-ha."
10. Marvin the Martian - Looney Tunes
I guess from Marvin's point of view he is a loyal Martian attempting to blow up Earth, his planet's rival. Yes, he is a villain but not to Martians. And so, we close with Marvin in our number 10 spot.
