Character Bio

The Kravitzes are an average retired suburban couple. And Gladys is the ultimate neurotic nosey neighbor. Living next door to a witch, she witnesses everything from Santa Claus and his reindeer heading off for the holidays to furniture and people popping in and out of houses. From time to time, Abner is able to convince Gladys that her problems and the things she sees are all in her mind. Even when she's zapped into the 17th century, Abner tries to convince her it is a dream. But they do love each other and are big-hearted enough to take in a foster child at Christmas, look after their nephew and be supportive of Gladys' equally neurotic brother, a shy concert violinist.
