In Sharon's dream world of Harry Barker, Fred and Barney Measly are the identical older twin brothers of Donald Measly. The two are inseparable pranksters who are renowned for their mischief. They perpetually speak in unison, as if the same voice were coming from two different mouths. Although it is implied that Harry was already aware of their existence beforehand, we first encounter the pair during "Harry Barker and the Prisoner of Angband". Catching Harry in the act of sneaking out of Hollerith's Castle, they present him with the Hooligan's Hash, which they stole from caretaker Fisk's office in a previous year, stating, "Fortunately, we decided that your need is greater than ours."

Fred and Barney are the analogs of Fred and George Weasley from Harry Potter. Although the name "Fred" is reused, "Barney" is taken firstly from The Flintsones, with the more direct association being the metasyntactic variables inspired by the cartoon.
