I remember this. When WHDH-TV channel 5 first came on, this was the
weekend weather report, and they just called it "Ted Miller and
Friend." Barney was a handpuppet that hung around the weather map
(probably the puppeteer was behind the map), asking questions and making
snide remarks, and Ted Miller answered Barney's questions, probably
explaining some complex weather issues by explaining them to Barney.
