Barrel Boy is a stick figure character in xkcd. He only appears in the The Boy and his Barrel series, an early six-comic story whose parts were randomly published during the first several dozen strips. Barrel Boy is very different from what would quickly become the xkcd stick figure style, since he has a face and a human-like body.
