(DePatie-Freleng/NBC-TV 9/9/72 - 9/1/73)
Inspired by the classic 70’s sitcom All in the Family (a show that questioned everything about the sitcom genre, turning “safe” television on its ear), The Barkleys featured a family of dogs led by Arnie Barkley, an opinionated sort who didn’t mind sharing his feelings with anyone and everyone.
These opinions usually clashed with those of Arnie's wife Agnes and their children Terri, Chester, and Roger. Like their prime time contemporaries, the Barkleys touched on such issues as women’s liberation, topics that had rarely been broached in prime time, let alone Saturday mornings.
Sadly, the show did not get much support from adults or children, and only aired for one season.
