Moe Szyslak: A closer look at The Simpsons' most tragic figure

Or as the ladies like to call him, "you behind the bushes".

The Simpsons is one of the best TV shows of all time. It might be considered THE best show of all time, if it wasn't for the episodes that they've been putting out for the past 10 years. The general consensus is that The Simpsons has gone to the dogs. But that doesn't mean that it hasn't blazed a trail for all the other animated series that arrived in its wake.

The most tragically brilliant character? Our favourite bartender, Moe Szyslak. Springfield's favourite sad-sack. His blend of blind rage, absolute misery, and perfect one-liners make him without a doubt, one of the best TV characters of all time.

Here are some of his funniest moments.

Funk dancing for self-defence

Arguably his funniest moment, and perhaps THE funniest moment throughout the entirety of the show. "Just give 'em one of these".

"They're on to us..."

One of Moe's many run-ins with the law.

Moe, Moe, Moe

Who could forget his number one hit? A classic for the ages.

The best prank call ever

There was nothing Bart Simpson liked more than to prank call Moe's Tavern. It gave us some hilarious moments, but none funnier than this. The mother of all prank calls.

The lie-detector test

Another iconic scene, portraying just how hilarious Moe's life was.

"I'm better than dirt"

Moe had some serious anger problems. Hilarious anger problems.

Flaming Moe's

A great song, from a great episode. To quote Moe himself, "Homer came up with the drink, but I came up with the idea of charging $6.95 for it."

Uncle Moe's Family Feedbag

Moe cracks in this scene. Big time. Uncle Moe's Family Feedbag would be no more after this.

And who could forget his dating show appearance?

"Why do we have to stand here? It's so humiliating."
