Well, here it is, guys–the last guest list. *sniffle* So that’s the sad news. Here’s the great news: the hilarious Melissa from Snap Crackle Watch! is here to share that list. Have you been to Melissa’s site? She cracks me up with film reviews and TV recaps (particularly her Game of Thrones ones…pure gold). Be sure to follow her! Anywho, Melissa is here to share some of her favorite April Fools, so let’s check out her choices!
I do love a good list so here is my go at my top 5 TV fools.
1. Homer from The Simpsons
Remember that episode where… I mean really that is how you can start any conversation about Homer. That time he kept saying I am so smart, SMRT or when he got that bird toy to do his work at the factory. Homer is the epitome of a loveable fool. His sage advice transcends generations, I mean who doesn’t love Homer?!
2. Buster Bluth from Arrested Development
Tony Hale, well this man can play the hell out of the fool part for any show. As Buster he is attached to his mother and unlike his brothers and family he shies away from their nastiness and will do anything for his mom, basically he is her personal assistant. Shoulder rubs and getting tucked in at night, now that’s his type of fun. Close second is his character of Gary in Veep. Anything Selena wants or needs he has, he loves her unconditionally just like his mommy, see a trend here.
3. Balki Bartokomous from Perfect Strangers
He was the loveable foreign guy living in Chicago with his supposed American cousin. He was a total goof and got every American slang term wrong. He was literally the poster child for foolishness in the late 80s.
4. Kelly from Married with Children
She was the offspring of Al and Peggy need I say more. Kelly was a complete airhead, remember when she had to look at the name of the car she was trying to model for.. this is the new…. Allante. Glancing at her hand the whole time. She tried so hard though sometimes to be smart, poor Kelly.
5. Frank from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Danny Devito plays Frank, the father of Dee and Dennis and the proprietor of the weirdest, seediest bar in Philly. The hijinks he gets himself and the gang into are hilarious and the way the Devito plays this character is genius. He has a certain lack of narcissism and is willing to take his character to any level. I have to admit he is probably my favorite on this list.
Thanks sooooo much, Melissa! Yet MORE epically lovable idiots! And thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to every last one of you guest bloggers! In my final April Fools post, I shall be thanking you each individually, but I just wanted to make a point to say that in general right now. Today is my last full day NYC, which makes me a little blue…Also, the looming 7 AM flight sounds pretty disgusting. However, the good news is I shall be returning to catch up on all of the amazing content you lovely people have been posting! So I’ll see ya soon, WordPress! No post tomorrow, but expect one on Tuesday. 🙂

Internet is baaaack! Wiiiiiin! Lololol. I’m sure my mom appreciates the apology, you two. 😉
Excellent list! Love Buster so much. One of my favourite stupid Homer quotes is, “Every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain. Remember when I took that home wine-making course and I forgot how to drive?”
LOL right so many ones I couldn’t think of a perfect example.
Great list, Melissa! OMG – Balki! Forgot about him! Lol! Now I feel really old. Again. : ) And Homer is the BEST. Is this the first list he was on? Not sure but he deserves to be on them all. : )
I know right Balki! I was thinking I hope people know who he is!! lol Yes Homer should reign as king of the April Fools!
You are right, Melissa, who doesn’t love Homer? Good stuff. And thank you Cara for this blog series, I know I haven’t commented on them, but I am an avid follower 🙂

LOL nice list Melissa. It seems I need to watch Always Sunny In Philadelphia!
Glad to have you back Cara! (cause yes, I am catching up, so you are back)
Great series! I never saw Arrested Development, but I loved Tony Hale when he was on Chuck.
Thanks! I haven’t seen a lot of Arrested Development, but what I’ve seen is hilarious. You should check it out. Melissa would agree. 🙂
Great list, Melissa, even if I’m late in seeing it. 🙂
I don’t know your second and fifth characters, but I totally agree on the other three. Especially Homer. He’s the perfect selection for this blogathon!
