Barclay, originally credited as Floyd, is a reoccurring character in The Dukes of Hazzard. He is a typical companion of Hughie Hogg and is usually partnered with Norris.
He goes with Hughie and Norris to Hazzard County. Upon their arrival, Boss gives a large show of their donation of a fire engine to the Hazzard Fire Department. When Bo and Luke pull up, he moves to stand by Hughie in case he is needed.
As part of Hughie’s plan, he, Boss, and Barclay head over to Zach Wheaton’s farm where Boss had him set a fire and call out all the volunteer firemen, including the Dukes.
After Hughie makes a deal with Boss to sign everything over to Hughie, he drives Hughie to the County Building, then he drives him to meet up with the conman.
After Norris captures Bo and Luke, they go back to the county jail to watch the boys be locked up by Rosco.
Hughie hires them as deputies now that he has taken over Hazzard. When Boss writes a check to bail Bo and Luke out, they go into the police station with a gun on all of them, stopping the boys from leaving. At the reminder that he sold over everything to Hughie, Boss says he isn’t going to take it laying down he says Boss can take it sitting down in a jail cell with the boys. He tells Boss to get out before he bounces him out with the rubber check. He then helps take Bo and Luke back down to the cells.
Under Hughie’s order, he, Norris, and Roy rename Hazzard to ‘Hughie Town’, nailing up a sign.
When Bo and Luke attempt to escape, they spot them. He shoves Luke down the stairs and punches him but Luke hits him back and knocks him down. As he gets up Norris recaptures the boys. They lock the boys up and he watches Norris fire Cletus.
The next day he helps toss out the owner of Joe’s Hardware, collect a higher rent from the barber shop, and sets up a one way sign to point the wrong way before writing a ticket for the car who obeyed it. When Rosco comes into the police station to confront Hughie, they come up behind him. When Rosco threatens to hit Hughie, Hughie tells them to book him and take him away. As they take Rosco downstairs to lock him up they are grabbed by Bo and Luke. Luke shoves him into the cell and Rosco locks the door. Bo tells them by as they flee.
He uses his keys to open the cell saying the boys can’t be too far ahead. They go to look at the garage. They approach Cooter who says they can check his garage but to stay away from his truck. He sees a rocking oil drum and comments ‘looks like we struck oil’. He kicks it over but it’s empty. Seeing Cletus under a car they pull him out and he addresses Cletus as ‘chubby’ asking where are the Duke boys. Cletus says they borrowed a clunker and left town. He and Norris leave to chase after them.
After being unable to find the boys, they return to the Boar’s Nest and change prices on alcohol. After Hughie leaves with Daisy, he plays cards with Roy and Norris. They hear a noise and Norris mentions something must be wrong with the air conditioner. He says there isn’t one an tells Roy to go check it out. He tries to spy on Norris hand. When Roy doesn’t return, Norris tells him to go check it out. He tosses down the cards and goes outside. Someone taps him on the shoulder and he turns to see Bo who says ‘howdy’ before punching him across the face. As he stumbles, dazed, Bo picks him up and tosses him down the hill. He collides into Roy and knocks him down along with him.
He manages to get up and the three of them run up the hill and into the same car. He calls Hughie as ‘Nephew Boss from Deputy’ and Hughie tells him to speak up over the CB. He tells Hughie the Duke boys helped Boss heist the safe. They pursue Cooter’s truck and the General Lee. They catch up to the General and he begins to ram into it. They follow the boys down to the creek bed, bumping into Hughie before following the boys along the top of the creek. Hughie tells them to take the bridge but they learn too late the bridge is out. Their car crashed into Hughie’s in the air.
Later they are taken out of town by Cooter.
While on their way to Hazzard, he plays cards with Norris in the back of the RV, having a beer and smoking a cigar. Hughie tells them he just spotted the Duke boys. They laugh after Hughie runs the boys into a pond before returning to their game. After they wait in the RV while Hughie goes to talk to Boss Hogg.
Later, while Hughie is disguised as an old man, he is walking through Hazzard square with him and Norris. After they hear tires screech, Hughie tells them they got company, pointing out Bo and Luke in a brown car. Hughie says they need to go into the act right now and the three quickly move into the movie theater. He helps change Hughie’s disguise into an old farmer. After he and Norris go their separate way from Hughie.
During the night he goes to the Garage with Hughie and Norris. They set up a container of moonshine while Hughie connects it to the gas pump. After he helps Hughie set up the tape recorder and camera to catch Jesse.
The next morning they arrive at the garage and Barclay and Norris get out pf the RV. Jesse asks what he can do for them and he hands him a fuel can saying ‘fill that up will you?’ asking for the ‘special please’. As Jesse unknowingly pumps moonshine into the tank they see him call over Daisy and give her directions before telling them he likes to keep a neat filling station. Jesse finishes filling it up, charging him $6.25 and he pays him. He gives Jesse more and Jesse offers to get him some change but he tells him to keep it as it might be his last tip. He gets in the RV to leave.
After Hughie drives them to the other side of town, he get out telling them to go to their meeting place and listen to the C.B. in case he needs them. He drives off. After parking the RV in a barn they move away from it until they see Bo and Luke sneak in. They follow the boys inside as they find out that Hughie is behind it. Bo says that when he gets his hands on Hughie, he announces Bo isn’t going to do anything as way of letting the boys know they are there. He reaches for Luke and is about to get something to tie up the boys but Bo causes Norris to shoot their CB and Luke shoves them both out the RV. He manages to grab Bo and shove him into the barn wall. Bo overpowers him and tosses him on Norris before fleeing. They get into the RV to see the CB is shot and decide to go to a phone.
When they find a phone, he calls the Police station. He tells Hughie that Bo and Luke wrecked the CB and they found the pictures of him in all his different disguises. Hughie says to come pick him up at the county building.
They arrive at the county building and he waits in the RV as they load up the evidence. Once everything is loaded, he drives toward Capital City with Boss and Rosco following.
As they head to Capital City, Norris and Barclay play cards in the back. When Hughie dumps glass in the road to try to lose Bo and Luke, Boss yells over the radio about how he almost fell for the glass and they all laugh.
As they continue to ride, he climbs up front with Hughie. When Luke jumps on the RV, he is told to get rid of Luke ‘fast’. He opens the back door to try and knock Luke off but Luke hits him, knocking him back inside the RV before tossing the beehive in. They are attacked by bees and try to flee when Hughie stops the RV but Luke tackles them. Luke pulls him up and knocks him out.
Late he is escorted to Hughie’s car by Rosco and shoved in the back with Norris. They leave with Hughie.
Hughie, Barclay, and Norris return to Hazzard, intending for Hughie to run for Sheriff against Rosco. They watch Boss Hogg make an illegal business deal and record the entire thing with Hughie. When Hughie concludes they have enough evidence to blackmail Boss, he remarks that Hughie is one of the most conniving, rotten, bloodsucking, thieving critters he ever met. He asks Norris what he thinks, and Norris agrees.
As they head to town, the spot the General Lee with Coy, Vance, and Daisy. They are amused when Hughie tries to run the Duke’s off the road. However he is alarmed when the plan backfires and the bug is the one run off.
They go to Boss Hogg’s office and watch him reunite with Hughie. He listens to Hughie change gears, threatening Boss to turn the evidence he gathered over to the police unless Boss backs Hughie in the election for Sheriff.
Under Hughie’s orders, Barclay and Norris go around town, pulling down any support for Rosco and replacing it with Hughie’s campaign.
While doing the campaign for Hughie, Barclay and Norris overhear the Dukes tell Rosco at the Hazzard Garage that they will be backing Rosco for the election.
They run into the Police Department and he tells Hughie to ‘get ready for news that’ll knock your socks off.’ Norris fills him in to Hughie’s surprise. When Hughie asks why would they do that, he theorizes that maybe the Dukes hate Hughie more than Rosco, adding ‘that’s not hard to do’. Hughie orders them to get rid of the Dukes until after the election.
Norris and Barclay wait by the road with ski masks on until Coy and Vance come around to hang a poster. They come out of the bushes with a gun, telling Coy and Vance that they aren’t helping anyone anymore. Vance tosses a hammer at him, asking if he’ll hold it for him before attacking him and knocking Barclay down to escape. He gets up, getting their gun before driving after the boys. He takes another road to attempt to cut off the boys but the road ends and he accidentally jumps the car, wrecking it.
They return to Hughie, informing him that they tried to snatch the Dukes but the boys got away.
They go over to the Garage to see the Dukes campaigning. When Rosco refuses to arrest them, Boss swears in Hughie who simply says ‘I do’ and takes the badge. He turns to Norris and Barclay saying ‘Boys’ and they respond with ‘we do’ to which Hughie says they are now sworn in. He is then ordered to arrest the Duke Family. As he goes to do so he trips on a banana peel and falls into a stack of tires. He manages to get up and chase after the Dukes. As they go around the square he hits a phone booth.
They continue to chase the Dukes in the car out of town. When they come to a three way intersection, he decided to follow the General Lee, letting Daisy and Jesse go. When the General starts slowing down, they think they have the boys. However a crane operator grabs the police car and lifts it in the air. He protests that the operator is messing with the law, but the Duke boys tell him that he should put on a seat belt before driving away.
He goes with Hughie to the Hogg Family Home to attempt to arrest the Duke Family. He moves to arrest them but is pushes aside as the Dukes flee. They return to the station and Hughie sends him to put out an APB on Coy and Vance.He finishes the task and returns to Hughie, who asks if they ‘hear that’. He says he doesn’t but does smell something. They conclude there is a skunk in the building and flee. After they find that the prisoners are gone.
Hughie, Norris, and Barclay get a call from Vance at the Police Station, playing a tape of the crimes Hughie confessed they did to Daisy. Hughie agrees to a swap but then they leave the station, intending to arrest the Dukes and get the tape before the meeting.
Hughie, Barclay, and Norris set up the three women with Hughie’s campaign on the side of the road and wait in the bushes. When Vance and Coy stop for them, they come out to confront the boys. After Coy hands over the tape, they move to arrest them but he is knocked down by Coy. The boys then flee. Hughie says to not worry about the boys.
As they drive back to town they discover the tape given to them was blank and Vance calls them on the C.B. At Vance’s demand, they head to Morgan’s Glueworks.
They hide in the glueworks building until Vance, Daisy, Boss, and Rosco show their hands. They come out and take both tapes before revealing they are also double crossing Hughie. Coy drops down from the loft and he is splattered with a barrel of black goo. Coy then attacks him, but he manages to knock Coy over with a barrel and runs. After getting in the car they drive away with the General chasing after them. Coy forces them down a closed road and they run into a pond before they are captured by Vance and Coy.
Enos leads them out of the jail later and they are forced to leave Hazzard.
