The Barber is a character from the series 1 episode The Barber of Civil. He moves in to town for only a short while, but during his stay, he snips out the parts of the children's tongues which makes them so naughty, leaving only well-behaved children behind. This makes him very popular with the parents of Saucy-by-Sea. Two of the children he teaches to keep a civil tongue in their heads are Tanya and Peregrine.
The Barber is described as a cheerful-looking man with a handlebar moustache, bright red cheeks, and a long, licking tongue. He owns a purple cat, and collects the children's cheeky tongues in a large jar.
