Main article: Barclay family

Jimmy's parents are George and Mary Barclay. He has two siblings, Donna Barclay and Stewart Reed. His Grandfather is Grandpa Barclay. In his life, they have had one cat, Ferguson (given to Donna by her friend Karen Crosby before Karen died from cancer), and a dog, named Normal. It is also mentioned that he has a deceased Great-Grandmother Benson in The Family Vacation, Part 1.


Jimmy is typically adolescent in his outlook on life. He’s had a difficult time with growing up and dealing with the new realm of teenage problems. He’s also a cynic, often directing wisecracks at his family. But he is deeply devoted to his family and a “Barclay" through and through. He loves to play "Zapazoids."

In the two-part series Living in the Gray, Connie discovers that Jimmy's really been living a double life. He tells his family and friends that he works for a big local newspaper and is making good money, when really he's almost a vagrant, relying on his employer for housing. Really he works for a small tabloid.
