Barker Bill's Cartoon Show was a cartoon anthology series airing Tuesday and Thursday afternoons on CBS. Barker Bill was seen in the title frame of the cartoons presented which were culled from the black-and-white Terrytoons library. The next season in the series, Mighty Mouse cartoons were added.

CBS would take ownership of the Terrytoons library in 1955. A year later after Barker Bill was dropped, the cartoons were syndicated under the title Farmer Al Falfa & His Terrytoons Pals while Mighty Mouse Playhouse had gone to Saturday mornings on CBS in December 1955.
