South Park: Every Main Character Ranked Worst To Best

12. Timmy Burch

Comedy Central

Timmy's introduction gave Trey Parker and Matt Stone a chance to open up options of discussing disability in the guise of comedy. To do so has meant that they've featured surprisingly compelling moments and opened up many narrative avenues. Thankfully they don't mistreat Timmy, as the other kids all like him, and he seems to be an incredibly happy chap, making him irresistibly fun to watch.

With that being said, he ranks lowest thanks to the fact that the setup of his character inherently means that the joke gets old. He can only say the word Timmy, and whilst it is funny for a surprisingly long time, the joke grows a little stale. From there, he becomes more of a character, with motives and usefulness, but the limited speech choices become troublesome.

He will always feel like a lesser character since they decided to limit the amount of vocal interaction that he could have with the rest of the cast.

Hey, I'm Michael, lover of all things geeky, in games I always play as sneaky, favourite lion king character is Rafiki. In all seriousness, I am a Bristol-born boy, who moved out to Surrey to get his Bachelors degree in Drama and Theatre Studies before moving on to gain a Masters from the Guildford School of Acting. I adore all things pop culture, and will talk your ear off about anything ranging from my favourite wrestler (AJ Styles) to my favourite show (Avatar the Last Airbender)
