The Marathi family, Bhide's comprises of Aatmaram Tukaram Bhide, his wife Madhavi Bhide, and their daughter Sonu Bhide. Aatmaram is a teacher by profession and is also the secretary of the society. He has a love-hate relationship with Jethalal. He never leaves a chance to complain about the mischief's of Tapu and his child brigade. His wife is a home-based businesswoman who makes 'achaar' and 'papad' to sell and make money.
The Iyer family consist of Krishnan Iyer and his wife Babita. Krishnan Iyer is a well-known scientist and his wife Babita is from Bengal. While Krishnan Iyer's complexion is dark, Babita, however, is milky-white. Jethalal often flirts with Babita, but every time his efforts come to naught because of her husband. So, he (Krishnan Iyer) always looks for a reason to settle scores and get back at Jethalal.
