As others have said, Goofy is stupid too. Being clumsy is being clumsy. Being clumsy and being unable to realise you're clumsy though? Being totally oblivious to your own actions? That's more.

These two characters are incapable of understanding that what they did was a mistake, or why it was a mistake. They don't learn from these mistakes. This sounds like a very clear symptom of a learning disability to me.

We love her for being a clutz, it's her main trait. But, that doesn't mean she's not a retard. But then I guess we've seen so little of her in the canon that it's really not safe to come to any cement conclusions just yet.

Well, she is pretty dumb, no getting around that. But isn't being a retarded horse the whole reason why we like her? It's why I like her.

That's the second time I've seen Derpy compared to Goofy. It's like people have forgotten that, most of the time, Goofy's been portrayed as not being terribly bright.

@Zahnrad
I don't see anyone here arguing that watchmojo.com is saying they hate Derpy. Most of the people disagreeing with the mention are pointing out that there's really not much evidence of Derpy's intelligence level, one way or another.

If you watched the full thing they mentioned on multiple characters that they enjoy the "dumb" characters for their cute or quirky parts.

Unfortunately derpibooru and equestria daily assumes "dumb" to mean "fucking retarded" mind my language.

@Minus
Derpy has been shown to be a bit more clumsy and goofy than stupid. And given it's mojo they probably just included Derpy for more views on the video. When people who enjoy cartoons probably know that there are more characters who deserve an honorable mention before even thinking of Derpy on the list.



Derpy is more comparable to Goofy,than a Ralph Wiggum.

In her defense, in Feeling Pinkie Keen it was a truck full of things floating in the air, all it would take is for that trailer to tilt back a little, and the other pegasus with her looked just as guilty and another one flew off, so it probably wasn't her fault entirely anyways.

Her scene in "Feeling Pinkie Keen" is much more easily explained as clumsiness; in fact, it would be a stretch to point to it as evidence she's viewed as stupid.

"Luna Eclipsed" has her wearing paper bags as a costume, which some people could interpret as a sign of some form of mental deficiency, though it could easily be seen as her being odd or silly (or poor or frugal). (One reason I love her blink-and-you-miss-it cameo in "Sweet and Elite" so much is that it solidifies her paper bag costume as an expression of eccentricity; after all, if she's able to just add a string of pearls to that costume and then crash a montage of high-society ponies, she's really got something going.)

"The Last Roundup" has her causing lightning bolts by bouncing on a cloud, and then proclaiming "I just don't know what went wrong." Add that to her falling down after cheering Applejack, and it's easy to see how someone who hadn't noticed Derpy before would assume she's supposed to be stupid. Knowing what had happened in the scripted scene that got cut for time, or taking note of her other appearances, makes it reasonable to see her as being depicted as clumsy and a little spacey in "The Last Roundup", but without that added context, that scene is not very flattering.

Honestly, I love Derpy, and I think on the whole she's not been portrayed as noticeably stupid in the series. And as much as I liked her scene in "The Last Roundup", it's really disheartening to see it brought up again and again as "proof" she's an idiot.

I just assumed she was clumsy, not "stupid." Plus, the "Last Round-Up" isn't the first time she did something like this, "Feeling Pinkie-Keen" comes to mind. (And to a lesser-extent "Luna Eclipsed" when she accidently drained the apple-bobbing tub.) So she can screw-up some things/jobs.

And this is another reason why I'm not terribly fond of her scene in "The Last Roundup". She's been shown capably helping out multiple times throughout the series' run, and most of her other appearances can easily be interpreted as her being eccentric and/or silly. It's a lot harder to do that with "The Last Roundup". (To be fair, the original script apparently made it more clear that Derpy was guilty more of carelessness than outright stupidity.)

Those auto-playlist things drive me up the wall. They seem to be enabled by default whenever I navigate to a video from someone's user page.

"Beavis (yet shows Butthead) is marginally more intelligent then Butthead."

Yeeaaaahhh… They didn't research these shows very well… Surprised Derpy made the list, though without any commentary.

Ugh… If anything Gravity Falls, and Phineas & Ferb are the ONLY good things on the Disney Channel now… (And the hilarious new Mickey shorts.)
