20 to 1: TV Neighbours

I didn’t catch last night’s new episode of 20 to 1 but Nine have been good enough to send through the list of “TV Neighbours” for our perusal.

There are some great names on this list….

20: Ugly Naked Guy (Friends)
19: Barney Rubble (The Flinstones)
18: Rose (Two and a Half Men)
17: Lenny and Squiggy (Laverne and Shirley)
16: Marcy D’Arcy (Married With Children)
15: Bob and Midge (That 70’s Show)
14: Margo Leadbetter (The Good Life)
13: Kimmy Gibbler (Full House)
12: Edie Britt (Desperate Housewives)
11: Dorrie Evans (Number 96)
10: “The wicked and unhinged tenants” (Melrose Place)
9: Hyacinth Bucket (Keeping Up Appearances)
8: Fred and Ethel Mertz (I Love Lucy)
7: Frank and Marie Barone (Everybody Loves Raymond)
6: Cosmo Kramer (Seinfeld)
5: Steve Urkel (Family Matters)
4: Ned Flanders (The Simpsons)
3: Wilson (Home Improvement)
2: Vivean Gray playing Mrs Mangel (Neighbours) and Mrs Jessup (The Sullivans)
1: Gladys Kravitz (Bewitched)

Good to see Kramer, Dorrie Evans, Ned Flanders, Vivean Gray (in 2 roles no less), Ethel & Fred Mertz and Gladys Kravitz (NB: there were two actresses in this role).

Not sure I agree with Hyacinth Bucket given she was the central character in Keeping Up Apearances. It kinda rules her out given she had her own neighbour in Elizabeth. But on the whole it’s not a bad list.

So who did they leave out, guys?


  1. Where is “Mrs. Poole” from the TV series “The Hogan Family”? She was one of the funniest TV neighbours in the 80s / early 90s! (Not to mention a main character – who actually was the family’s neighbour).

    The show was actually titled “TV’s Funniest Neighbours” when it was screened however it seems to have morphed into “TV Neighbours”….hmmmmm….there could have easily been more to make it a list of “funny neighbours”.

  3. Missing from the list is Ben and Carbo (Packed to the Rafters), Penny (The Big Bang Theory), Tabitha Lenox (Passions) and Nell (Round the Twist).

    Fantastic show shame I missed it.

    Last nights show was fun. my two favourite neighbours were Marrie and Frank A(Everybody love Raymond) and Ned Flanders (Simpsons). When he broke down and just lost it that was a great episode.
