Literature: The Stupids
The Stupids were the title characters of a series of books written by Harry Allard and illustrated by James Marshall. It features an unusual family that is Exactly What It Says on the Tin in that they are stupid and get easily mixed up when performing tasks, to the point that the dog and cat are smarter than them. The books were made into The Film of the Book in 1996, starring Tom Arnold as the family's patriarch, Stanley Stupid, for which he won a Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actor. The film was critically panned and was a Box Office Bomb.
