     "Do you know where to go,
      When you're feeling all alone?

  spacer number two

     It's a dog-gone world out there. Or a doggy one, actually, because Barney and
     friends are a happy-go-lucky gang of dogs abroad in a world chock-full of canines.

       Barney's pal Prophet

     Our Barney is a Sheepdog who has a cheeky fieldmouse called Roger living in his
     shaggy coat. Barney is regularly lured by the bright lights of fame and fortune, and
     wisetalking Roger is always quick to point out various oppurtunties or shortcomings.
     Barney's good friend is a dour Spaniel called Prophet. Just like his name, he's
     always forecasting trouble and strife where e'er they roam. Then there's his
     pals Desmond and Roger and Camelia, the pretty Chihuahua. Barney is also
     Uncle to two mischievous Dalmation pups.

     Barney and pals traverse the world on all fours, but they're able to visit the fair,
     catch criminals, star on television, go on holiday and many things us humans
     can do. And their world is exactly the same as ours, except that it's run by dogs.
     Quite how these dogs got their paws around the intricacies of our modern world is
     anyone's guess. But they did.

     This cheerful toon was produced by John Coates and directed by Bob Balser.
     Their relationship extends back to Yellow Submarine, where Bob was one of
     the animation directors (alongside Jack Stokes). Bob also directed episodes of
    "The Addams Family" for Hanna-Barbera/Halas&Batchelor, and worked on the
     Emmy-winning adaptation of "The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe" and
     the "Charlie Brown" tv series. "Barney" was animated at Bob's studio in Barcelona.
     The production features a light crayoned layout design, in the fashion of
     The Snowman, the multi award-winning classic from John Coates' TVC.
