Donna's cynical younger brother who has a great imagination and loves to have fun.


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.


Donna’s younger brother 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.

  • Jimmy is more than likely in his early 20's.
  • Jimmy has aspired to many vocations over the series, including an actor, a paramedic, and a preacher.
  • Jimmy's name was a purposeful reference to Jimmy Stewart in the film "It's a Wonderful Life." In fact, the names of the entire Barclay family were references to that film, as revealed in an interview released on CD. Numerous other It’s a Wonderful Life References appear throughout AIO.
  • At one time as an adolescent, Jimmy received a mass of unwanted love letters and poems.
  • In one scene of The Vow, Jimmy played basketball with his shorts.
