Whatever your view of the later seasons may be, it's impossible to deny that at its peak, The Simpsons was one of the greatest shows ever broadcast on TV. In a cast of literally hundreds, everyone has their own personal favorite outside of the actual Simpson family, but somehow, an evil billionaire tops the list for many. What makes Charles Montgomery Burns so special? Everyone loves a good villain and no one is as despicable as Mr Burns. Despite being a frail old man who can't even crush a paper cup with his hands, Burns has terrorized the town of Springfield with his ridiculous schemes since the very first episode of season 1. Starting out as simply Homers horrible boss, the character of Burns evolved into something so much more as the series progressed. It would have been easy to depict Burns as a one dimensional villain so it's a credit to the writers that we can actually empathize with Burns and even cheer him on as carries out his evil plots. After discovering that Harry Shearer has never won an Emmy for the role of Burns, I thought it's about time we celebrated Springfield's richest citizen by taking a look back at his 10 best moments on the show. The selections made here are drawn primarily from the first 10 seasons, so if you think I've missed out any classic scenes, let me know in the comments section below. Now release the hounds!
