Western Animation / Neighbors From Hell
Neighbors From Hell
was a Flash animated
sitcom created by South Park
veteran Pam Brady that premiered on June 7, 2010 on TBS
, but sadly was not renewed for a second season. The plot basically concerns the adventures of a family of demons that must relocate to Houston
, Texas in order to keep a powerful new drill with the ability to plow straight into Hell itself from becoming active, thereby destroying their underworld. ...Yeah.
It should not be confused with a series of PC games
by the same title.
- Driven to Suicide: Marjoe's dog wants to die than live another moment with her. But many attempts end in failure or bad timing (usually thanks to Marjoe).
- Even Evil Has Standards - Tina is constantly repulsed by the disgusting and politically incorrect demeanor of her new neighbor Marjoe. Tina's daughter Mandy breaks up with Killbride's son because he's cruel to unpopular, or disabled kids. Even Satan himself is disconcerted by how amoral and evil Killbride can be.
- Everyone Meets Everyone - Hellmans, meet weirdos from Houston, TX. Houston, Hellmans.
- Everything Is Big in Texas - Pretty much a constant parody of said trope. Also applies to most of the women on the show, as well.
- Fartillery - In episode 1 Marjoe farts (purposely) in her suicidal dog's face just for laughs.
- Friend to All Living Things: Josh loves animals and animals seem to love him back, ironic considering he's a demon.
- Guilty Pleasure: One of the triggers of the whole premise. Bal loved secretly watching earth television, which is considered one of the most horrible things in existence in Hell. This leads to Bal knowing more about humans than any of the other demons, which makes him Satan's choice for the job up on earth.
- Hard-Drinking Party Girl - Tina is almost never seen without some kind of alcoholic beverage (usually, though not always, a martini) in hand.
- Humans Are the Real Monsters: So much so, they make DEMONS look good.
- Ink-Suit Actor: The female executive that sexually harasses Balthazar is voiced by Jane Lynch, and basically looks like a caricature of her to boot.
- Noble Demon: Even for literally being a demon, Balthazar's actually a pretty nice guy all things considered.
- Once an Episode: Tina and Bal making out.
- Our Demons Are Different - They treat sinful repentance as a punch-in-and-out day job and act seemingly human, with families.
- Parental Obliviousness - In Guns For Mutts, even Ashley's own father didn't know she was a girl... somehow.
