Weird sit-com about a weird cartoonist whose weird imagination causes weird things to happen.
5 July 2000 | by (Catania, Italy) – See all my reviews

"The People Next Door" follows the plight of a cartoonist and his daughter as they move into an apartment. The peace and quiet of the apartment complex is shattered when the new people next door move in. Weird things happen as the cartoonist's wild imagination causes wild things to happen. The moose he has mounted to the wall, for example, would converse with him as he is looking for ideas. Sometimes the moose would argue with him. All chaos breaks loose as he tries to get his weird ideas on paper. The name of his comic strip is "The People Next Door" and the comic is inspired by Gary Larson's "The Far Side".

"The People next Door" was a really stupid program. But then again, that was why the program was so funny.

Unfortunately, the series got cancelled after only a few episodes!
