In The Neighborhood episode “Welcome to the Yard Sale,” Dave (Max Greenfield) convinces his neighbor Calvin (Cedric the Entertainer) to hold a yard sale. When longtime neighborhood resident Miss Simpson makes a purchase Calvin quickly regrets selling the valuable object. Calvin gets Dave to help him get it back.
Yard sale shopper Miss Simpson on The Neighborhood is portrayed by Marla Gibbs.
