"Juan of the Dead" is the 10th episode of Season 1 in The Neighbors.


Juan, the Hidden Hills community’s beloved gardener, has passed away. It’s a sad fact of life -- one that the Zabvronians totally do not seem to understand. Marty and Debbie are worried because Max loved Juan and Max hasn’t ever really had to deal with death. But certainly he’ll take it better than the Zabvronians, who pretty much lose their minds over hearing the concept of death.

Larry sets out to “solve” the problem of death. Using the only dose of a medicine his father gave him before, he brings Juan back from the dead…kinda. He’s sorta zombie-fied, and he can’t talk, but he’s technically alive. That really confuses Max, who’s just learning about death. After a nice long talk, Max is fine, but Larry needs a nice chat from Marty as well. He’s not thrilled about death, but he accepts it.
