    Vote or be cast to the eternal damnation of 'Til Death and... Malcom in the Middle. Personally, I say GOB.

    I voted Tobias...but Tobias, G.O.B, and Buster are all pretty much a tie in my opinion

    I think they all work best as a "combined force", i mean think about if one of the characters got their own show and none of the family were there, it just wouldn't be right. Look what happened to Joey the spinoff from friends but then again Frasier was a spinoff from Cheers so hey what do i know? thats why I'm just a tv viewer.

    I think Tobias is the funniest, although Gob and Buster are close 2nd and Third. I find Michael the least funny.
    Actually when I think Michael, I hear "Michael" as said by Gob.

    Yeah, they all kind of combine to make the show funny, but, yeah, some tend to have more 'funny' moments than others. I had a hard to deciding between Tobias and G.O.B., but ultimately went with the latter because of his 'tricks'...err.. 'illusions'.

    Aw, poor Michael. He's ultimately the straight man so he doesn't really get any personal funny moments, at least not as many as some of the others. One of my favorite scenes overall is his whole misunderstanding when he gave a ride to who he thought was his mother's housekeeper (but wasn't) in "Charity Drive".

    I'd say George-Michael so I can't vote. I just love it when he gets all flustered about Maeby.

    I'm in the minority, but I voted for Lucielle. But, if I could vote for all of them I would. They're all just so funny.

    I think GOB was the funniest character. But I have to disagree about Michael, some of the looks he gave and some of his one liners were priceless.

    I voted for GOB.  Although I also enjoyed Buster and George Sr. a lot as well.  In fact I enjoyed them all.  Great show, it died too soon.

    I didn't vote because I don't think I could choose between Gob and Tobias. They are both just too damn funny. Everyone else is good too.

    Yeah, Michael isn't as funny as the rest but he isn't supposed to be. And I think he's one of the best TV straight men I've ever seen. His reactions are perfect.

    No one voted for George Sr. but he is also hilarious. Just doesn't get as much air time. The episode w/ Cindy Lightballoon was awesome.

    I voted for Gob because I think Will Arnett and Gob are hilarious. Tobias is a close second to me as well.
