The Most Annoying Neighbors In TV History

Everyone will experience an annoying neighbor at least one time in their life. They might say inappropriate things, over stay their welcome, meddle, pester, and sometimes be downright disrespectful! No matter the reason for their annoying nature, television has done an amazing job over the years bringing us neighbors who have grated our nerves and made us thankful for the real life ones we have!

1
Cosmo Kramer - Seinfeld
NBC

Perhaps the most beloved of all bad neighbors, Kramer charmed us with his snazzy entrances and the ability to pay his rent. However, he never knocked, never knew when to leave and had zero filter when he spoke...cue eye roll!

Nickelodeon

Maybe the creepiest of all neighbors was Sam, who couldn't go through the front door like a normal person. Instead he chose to climb in young Clarissa's room by ladder. Uh what if she was changing?

CBS

"GO HOME ROGER!" No matter what, Roger never got the hint that he was more of a pest than a charming friend who frequently dropped by without an invite.

The cast of That '70s Show
Fox

If I were Eric's dad I'd be FURIOUS over the freeloading hippy types constantly hanging out and smoking pot in this Korean War vet's house. Wasn't there a local burger joint they could meet up at?

5
The cast of Will and Grace
NBC

Will and Grace used to date, now they live together, Jack lives across the hall and is BFFs with Karen who works for Grace. Rosario works for Karen, they are all always in the same place at the same time and the results are HILARIOUS. So maybe they aren't truly annoying, but never having any alone time would end up grating any normal person's nerves.

Fred and Ethel -I Love Lucy
CBS
Sometimes I wonder if Lucy and Ricky really wanted the Mertz duo over at all. They are a good twenty years older than the Ricardos and they would just show up for no good reason ALL THE TIME. Plus, Fred was always speaking in a gruff, grumpy tone, which was just too aggressive.

The cast of Friends
NBC

I don't know HOW we are supposed to believe that these people could afford such huge apartments in Greenwich Village. Maybe they had a six-way split on the rent of the two apartments and in return they could just come and go as they please? Fact is, they were all super annoying to each other. There was no such thing as secrets or even getting a minute alone in the bathroom. Co-dependent much?

NBC

Okay, he wasn't a neighbor buuut he acted like one. Most of Jazz's on screen time was spent getting thrown out of the Bel-Air mansion that he so often crashed.

Kimmy Gibbler - Full House
ABC
Precocious, sassy, and lovably annoying, Kimmy Gibbler is one of the all time greats. Not only was she CONSTANTLY at the house, but always had this daft confidence when talking to the adults that kinda made you want to yell, "I love you, but shut up!" 24/7/365.

Fonzie - Happy Days
CBS

Arthur Fonzarelli is just one of the family in the Cunningham household, they love him, but it was kinda annoying how he always managed to outshine his chosen family no matter what was going on. 

11
Steve Urkel -Family Matters
ABC

"DID I DO THAT?" YES, YES YOU DID, NOW GET OUT!!

12
CBS

Raymond's parents taught people everywhere to move far, far away from your in-laws. There's only so much meddling one can take before a family feels the need to permanently divide!

Mr. Roper - Three's Company
ABC

Strange that in 1977 Mr. Roper would be forward thinking enough to be cool with Jack Tripper being gay but DEFINITELY NOT COOL with a straight guy living with two chicks. He was the epitome of a "nosy neighbor" who was probably so bored with his life, pestering his tenants was his only form of socializing and entertainment. 

14
Steve and Marcy - Married With Children
Fox

Al and Marcy HATE each other, maybe because Marcy was so perky and straight-laced and Al was such a grump. Not sure why Peggy didn't just go over to Marcy's house instead, but then again without the Marcy/Al dynamic the hilarity would be gone.
