Farmer Al Falfa & His Terrytoons Pals was a syndicated repackaging of Terrytoons cartoons previously screened on CBS as Barker Bill's Cartoon Show. The cartoons, originating from 1933 to 1939, featured Farmer Al Falfa (renamed Farmer Gray in the St. Johns comics drawn by Terrytoons artists), Gandy Goose, Puddy The Pup and Kiko The Kangaroo.

Although associated with the 1930s black-and-white films, the character of Farmer Al Falfa would appear in three color Terrytoons cartoons in the mid-to-late 40s, the last of which was the Heckle and Jeckle cartoon "The Uninvited Pests" (1946).
