Harriet Oleson was one such character. Played with aplomb by seasoned Broadway actress Katherine MacGregor, Mrs. Oleson (always called Mrs. Oleson, never Harriet except by her long-suffering husband Nels, was the best-known and longest-running character on Little House on the Prairie (1974) outside of the Ingalls family.
Scottie MacGregor, as she was known most of her career, recently passed away at age 93, after living for many years at the Motion Picture Fund Long Term Nursing Care facility in Woodland Hills, CA. She was a devout Hindu and was known by the actors from Little House, particularly the children, as a caring, funny mentor.
In honor of Scottie MacGregor and the perfectly horrible Harriet Oleson, which of these know-it-all, busy-body, nosy TV neighbors would you most hate to live next to?

In a 2013 interview, Ed O'Neill revealed that Amanda Bearse
was the only regular cast member
with whom he didn't get along, and no longer kept in touch;
O'Neill felt that after that time,
she was getting "more masculine" and "snarky",
and they would often argue over trivial matters
