* ''Series/ThreesCompany'' had Mr. Roeper and, later, Mr. Furley, both of Furley. The former fit the CrankyNeighbor trope much more, however, than the latter, who were created as old curmudgeons who would walk in at the wrong moment and [[NotWhatItLooksLike be scandalized]].was actually more laid back.

qualify as a more innocent version of this. They're rather pleasant elders most of the whole world is time, it's just that their little neighbor ''happens'' to be a MagicalGirl and at times they get caught in the middle of her neighbor, and only her meddling can save magical mishaps by proxy, or at others they can't help being curious about it.

* Sir John and Mrs Jennings in ''Literature/SenseAndSensibility'' are good-natured gossips who take an eager interest in the romantic prospects of any young person who enters their field of vision (Mrs Jennings, it's noted, has two married daughters and is now seeking to marry off the rest of the world). Marianne Dashwood finds this extremely annoying and would give offense if Sir John and Mrs Jennings were capable of being offended. Elinor finds it tiresome, too, but she thinks that the pair's meddling is offset by their genuine kindness and generosity.


Added DiffLines:

* One sketch ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' has a pair of pepperpots manning a surveillance room that would make MI-5 jealous as they peer into living rooms by telescope and record the length of time their neighbors are at the doctor. And ''they'' are being monitored by a hidden camera placed by a different set of neighbors.

%%* * Gladys Kravitz of ''Series/{{Bewitched}}'' is a particularly famous example.an iconic example, to the point that nosy neighbors are often referred to as "Mrs. Kravitz" types. She was forever spying through her window at the Stephens house across the street, catching glimpses which suggested something very ''strange'' was going on over there, but she could never convince her aloof husband, Abner.

** Squidward is Type II, though he would never admit it. The plots of several episodes (Bubblestand, Snowball Effect, Club Spongebob, The Camping Episode, Idiot Box, etc) begin when Squidward is so overcome with frustrated curiosity that he ''cannot'' bring himself to keep his nose out of their antics.
