Television's 11 Most Gullible Characters Who You Can't Help But Love Anyway
While it's totally natural to want to shake anyone who's super gullible and give them a good dose of reality, the same can't be said for the most gullible characters on television. From Rose Nylund in Golden Girls to Michael Scott in The Office, the natural reaction to seeing these guys believe anything is more of a "aww, they're so adorable," than a "oh my God, why are they allowed to exist." None of us can help it! They're just so lovable, it's hard to be exasperated by anything — even the fact that they'll believe the most outlandish things for the sake of their respective TV shows' plots. Sure, sometimes it might seem unrealistic, but who cares? It's cute anyway.
As beloved as they are, though, not enough attention is really paid to their brilliance: We highlight the smartest characters on television, and the hottest, but never the most who are so gosh-darn adorable and gullible that you just want to pat them on the head and give them a hug or something. So, in an effort to spark change in that sense, consider this one measure towards amends: Without further ado, here are television's 11 most gullible characters ever.
Rose Nylund (The Golden Girls)
All hail the queen: Ain't nobody more gullible or more cute about being gullible than Rose Nylund of St. Olaf.
Michael Scott (The Office)
Michael Scott, how you led an office for as long as you did without any sort of problem-solving skills will always be a wonderful, entertaining mystery that we'll try to decipher for years to come.
Brittany S. Pierce (Glee)
Glee's Brittany was like a wide-eyed child — except a child wouldn't be as susceptible to complete bullshit.
Jessica Day (New Girl)
Jess' naiveté in New Girl is as endearing as it is mind boggling, mainly because she never learns and her trust never waivers.
(Don't ever change, girl.)
Patrick Star (SpongeBob SquarePants)
Gullibility personified... or, should I say, starsonified?
Andy Dwyer (Parks And Recreation)
He is quite literally April's fool.
Leslie Knope (Parks And Recreation)
Leslie's gullibility is the possibly the most altruistic of the bunch — which also makes it the most hilarious.
Joey Tribbiani (Friends)
Oh, Joey. What can we say about you that hasn't already been said?
Hanna Marin (Pretty Little Liars)
It's hard to believe that anyone could be so easily led in a town with a five year long continual murder mystery, but alas, Hanna is.
Carlton Banks (The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air)
There's book smarts, then there's street smarts. We all know which type the intelligent, eventual Ivy League attendee possessed.
...bless his heart.
Timmy Turner's Parents (The Fairly OddParents)
This is basically Timmy's whole relationship with his parents in this s
Timmy's Parents: Hey, Timmy. Where'd you get that car/computer/house/dinosaur/gold chain?
Timmy's Parents: *Shrugs* Sounds plausible!
