Barry Appleby (August 30, 1909 – March 11, 1996) was a British cartoonist famous for creating The Gambols for the Daily Express. The strip premiered on March 16, 1950. The script was written by his wife Dobs, and was based on their own lives.

Appleby's father, E J. Appleby, was in the 1940s the editor of Autocar, a leading British motor magazine,[1] and one to which Appleby himself contributed his first illustration in 1931.[1] Later Appleby also wrote for the magazine edited by his father, using the alias "Helix".[1]
