The Barkleys were a typical idea of an all-American blue collar family since the days of radio sitcoms. Arnie, a know-it-all, short-tempered bus driver, his sweet but dim wife Agnes, and their problems dealing with their growing kids: Roger, a tall, long haired older boy, Terry, their headstrong, busy teen daughter and grade school boy Chester. Plots are usually about Arnie's harebrained schemes to get gain status or riches, or his misinterpreting his kids' activities. Written by WesternOne1

Largely forgotten charmingly mediocre animation series of the 1970s
20 February 2003 | by bamptonjSee all my reviews

In Australia, "The Barkleys" was released on CBS-Fox with another show by the same producers "The Houndcats" in 1988. They both became a child hood favorite despite the shoddy animation.

The two shows seem to have been made at roughly the same expense; the animation and script-writing are at about the same level. The Barkley's might be a tiny bit more satirical and intelligent. Most episodes revolve around the pivotal character, Arnie Barkley, the patriachal father of three children - sometimes browbeating, often unrelentingly pedantic and demanding. He maintains a superiority of his well-meaning neighbor Beagle (the Flanders), but is constantly sycophantic towards the owner of the bus company he works for (the Burns).

Not bad, this little comedy. The shoddiness of the overall production is more likely to endear than repulse.
