Meet the Barkers was a reality television series which aired on MTV. The series followed the everyday life of married couple, blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and his wife Shanna Moakler, as well as Moakler and Barker's two children, Alabama Luella Barker and Landon Asher Barker. Moakler and Oscar De La Hoya's daughter, Atiana Cecelia De La Hoya, also appeared on the show. Meet the Barkers lasted two seasons, airing 16 episodes.

In 2008, MuchMusic (before becoming Much) started airing Meet the Barkers after Barker's involvement with the 2008 South Carolina Learjet 60 crash.
