Abner Kravitz is Samantha's and Darrin's neighbor on Morning Glory Circle in Westport, Connecticut. He and his wife Gladys live across the street.


Abner is an easygoing type who continually scolds his wife for her nosy ways, and can never see the strange things going on at the Stephenses' house.

However, this is largely due to the fact he is more concerned that his wife should stop peeping on the neighbors than he is about what Samantha does behind closed doors. He is apologetic towards Darrin and Samantha for the actions of Gladys and is a model neighbor.


Jim Backus was the original choice for Abner Kravitz, but he turned it down because of his commitment to "Gilligan's Island".
