Life with Snarky Parker was a family-western puppet show that aired for
one season on network television in the 50s. Directed by award-winning
filmmaker, Yul Brenner, the show sets in Hot Rock, Arkansas, where
Deputy Sheriff Snarky Parker is responsible for keeping the peace.
Parker and his horse, Heathcliff, along with side kick, Cuda Barra,
(Voiced by Cora Baird) fight outlaws, Blackie McGoo (Voiced by Bil
Baird) and Noose Nolan (Bil Baird), each week. The Sheriff also manages
to flirt with the town's schoolteacher, Miss Butterball (Cora Baird),
who always turns down his advances.
