“Monty” Burns (The Simpsons)
Though Moe the bartender could give him a run for his money, Charles Montgomery “Monty” Burns (voiced by Harry Shearer) wins the award for nastiest man on The Simpsons
. Stingy, self-interested and criminally negligent in maintaining the nuclear power plant that provides much of his wealth, the richest man in Springfield couldn’t care less who he steps on so long as he gets his way. Older than dirt and prone to “releasing the hounds” on unsuspecting intruders, Mr. Burns makes a great foil for hapless Homer, and he’s the guy you love to hate—especially when he’s bossing poor Smithers around.
