The 10 Best TV Neighbors – Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

Ever wish you had a different neighbor? Well, what about a neighbor like one if these neighbors… the ten best in TV history

10. Larry Dallas – (Three’s Company) – Jack Tripper’s womanizing best friend. The best sleazy neighbor in history.

9. Richard “Boner” Stabone (Growing Pains) – Mike Seavor’s (Kirk Cameron) friend, neighbor and owner of the greatest nickname in family friendly sitcom history.

8. Barney Rubble (The Flintstones) – The diminutive blonde-haired caveman husband of Betty Rubble and father of Bamm-Bamm Rubble. He’s Fred Flinstone’s best friend and who doesn’t want to live next their best friend?

7. Urkel (Family Matters) – Steve was the epitome of a geek/nerd, with large, thick eyeglasses, “high-water” or “flood” pants held up by suspenders, multi-colored cardigan sweaters, and a high-pitched voice. He professed unrequited love for neighbor Laura Winslow, perpetually annoyed her father, Carl, and tried to befriend her brother, Eddie. He was annoying, but certainly his heart was always in the right place.

6. Wilson Wilson (Home Improvement) – Who cares if you can’t see his face…ever.  Tim’s neighbor and confidant. As a child, his parents did not allow him to speak to his neighbors, so he really likes talking to Tim and Jill. Wilson serves as an all-wise sage in the show, doling out advice to the Taylor family and seemingly knowing just what to say to solve a problem. He has traveled the globe and learned much from virtually every culture in existence. He has a Ph.D. in Cultural Studies, studying “extinct languages and forgotten cultures”.

5. Winnie Cooper (The Wonder Years) – Kevin Arnold’s main love interest. In an episode entitled “The Accident” and in the final episode, it is stated that every important event in Kevin’s life somehow involves Winnie. She lives on the same block as Kevin. She is the very definition of the “girl next door.”

4. Kramer (Seinfeld) – with his upright hairstyle and vintage wardrobe, the combination of which led to his categorization as a “hipster doofus”; his taste in fruit; his love of occasional smoking, Cuban cigars in particular; his energetic bursts through Jerry’s apartment door; frequent pratfalls and his penchant for nonsensical, percussive outbursts of noise to indicate skepticism, agreement, annoyance, and a variety of other inexplicable responses. Kramer is the best wacky neighbor in television history.

3. Ethel (I Love Lucy) – Ethel was Lucy’s landlady, and Ethel and Lucy were always scheming though Ethel generally provided the voice of reason as a counterpart to Lucy’s more hairbrained ideas. Still, she was the number one person she got in trouble with.

2. Ned Flanders (The Simpsons) – The long suffering neighbor to the Simpson family and Ned generally loathed by Homer Simpson. A devout Christian, he is amongst the friendliest and most compassionate Springfield citizens and is generally considered a pillar of the Springfield community. He may speak in an annoying rhyming pitter patter, but he’s the ultimate in turning the other cheek…especially when it comes to Homer Simpson.

1. Mr. Rogers (Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood) – Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood was characterized by its quiet simplicity and gentleness. Episodes did not have a plot, and consisted of Rogers speaking directly to the viewer about various issues, taking the viewer on tours of factories, demonstrating experiments, crafts, and music, and interacting with his friends. He is the ultimate neighbor and easily the best neighbor in television history.

Aaron Green: I think I just got raped.

Aldous Snow: [handing him a joint] Only one thing to do.

Aaron Green: [taking a hit] Uh, guys? What is this stuff? My heart’s going really fast.

The Hangover 2 Trailer… Same Movie?

Hmmm… I don’t know. We loved The Hangover and it was truly one of the best comedies ever. Also, we’ll be first in line for the sequel. We’re also pretty confident it will be funny. That said, watch The Hangover 2 trailer below, and I gotta be honest… it seems like the exact same movie. Its looks funny, but I’m going to have to place the Hangover 2 on notice. You can’t just replace a tiger with a monkey, and a baby with an old Thai man. I’m sure it will be great… but I’m officially worried.

Oh, and Kansas, they are a real natural disaster, am I right? They are like a tidal wave of epic destruction… on the court. Wait, so what was your question?”

President Obama later named Dick Vitale to his cabinet as the official United States Federal Secretary of Yelling.
