The Neighbor


Benny Jean and Cletus
Played By:

That Damn Neighbor is Benny Jean's arch-nemesis. He is obsessed with stealing Benny Jean's flamingo and other valuables or staying on Benny's property, such as staying in his new pool and stealing it in the comic, though it shows that he still cares for Benny when he sent a "Get Better Soon" card in the comic. Whenever Benny sees That Damn Neighbor, he yells, "You better stay away from my (noun), my (another noun), and especially my damn pet flamingo!!"


That Damn Neighbor wears sunglasses, a turquoise jacket with lavender lines, orange shorts, and white shoes. He also seems to have magical powers on the dance floor of voodoo dolls and extreme speed or teleportation.Which, to Benny's annoyance, can make Benny miss a punch or be unable to hit him.

The Neighbor keeps stealing Benny Jean's pet flamingo. While Benny Jean was in prison, he "hung out a few times" with Cletus. He owns a Segway and also has laser security installed in his house.

In the Smosh Comic, published by Dynamite, That Damn Neighbor, instead of wearing shorts,wears underpants which visibly shows his bulge from his crotch, and rear end.
