Mr. Arbuckle is Jon Arbuckle's father who tends the family farm. As proved in one strip, he has only very rarely been off the farm. Edward Arbuckle is probably his brother since his last name is Arbuckle and he's Jon's uncle. He is based on Jim Davis' father, James William Davis. Also, every Christmas he reads the Christmas story "Binky, the Clown Who Saved Christmas" to everyone.
