Following the death of Yoni Chen in 1995, Barbiro replaced him in Looney Tunes feature film, Bugs Bunny's 3rd Movie: 1001 Rabbit Tales as Elmer Fudd (until the first DVD edition dub) and Sylvester (until The Sylvester & Tweety Mysteries). Both roles were passed on to Ami Mendelman.

Following Giora Kenneth's retirement from voice work in 2007, due to health problems in his throat, Barbiro replaced him as Mr. Herriman in Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends and Minimus P.U. in Atomic Betty.

He is a close friend of Yoram Yosefsberg who co-played Allot in dubbing works.
