Barkleys, The - Family of
lower-middle class canines on the animated half-hour DePatie-Freleng
cartoon THE BARKLEYS/NBC/1972-73.
The Barkley family included Arnie
Barkley, an opinionated bus driver (voice of Henry Corden); his
wife, Agnes (Joan Gerber); daughter, Terri (Julie McWhirter); and
their two sons, Chester (Steve Lewis) and Roger (Gene Andrusco).
The series was inspired by the Archie Bunker character on the CBS
sitcom ALL IN THE FAMILY.
Theme Song Lyrics
Arnie Barkley, he's the head of the Barkley house.
Agnes Barkley is his devoted and loving spouse.
They've got kids, Terri, Roger and Chester, too
And all of them are Barkleys, through and through.
'Cause they're the Barkleys, and they're okay
And Arnie Barkley, With his very open mind is always
first to let you know his own opinionated ways
But even though he may grumble and get uptight
Just remember Arnie Barkley's bark is worst that his bite.
