1 Barney jumped the shark originally when they shrunk down all the dinosaur suits (Barney and Baby Bop, not sure if BJ was around yet) to "normal" size and changed Barney from purple to magenta. An additional jumping point came when they added that bird and squirrel to give their color commentary on everything the kids were up to. A pointless addition. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 4:55 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Now, when I was younger, I loved this show, but now I realize it's on a train to Stupidville! The actors make a lame excuse for comedy by acting retarded! Now, don't get me wrong, I like to watch senseless shows sometimes for good laughs, but the only way I'd laugh at this is if I was laughing at how pathetic it is! First, they've got this group of children who seem to be Barney's only friends, they've got the big ol' tub of lard himself, they've got some whiney Triceratops named "Baby Bop". Now wait just a darn minute, BABY BOP!!?!?!!? What kind of a name is that!?!?!!!? Then they got Barney's little brother, BJ, who's a Triceratops too. Wait, let's think. Barney is a...T-Rex maybe? Well, whatever he is, how can Baby Bop and BJ be his little sister and brother, AND BE A WHOLE DIFFERENT SPECIES!!?!!?!?!?! Also, there's a 16 year-old on it. Why is she joining the sorry excuse of a Barney fan club that is that group of kids??? I remember watching one episode where they pretend they're walking through a cave, and they tip-toe. WHY?!?!?!?!!?!?! If the cave's unstable, why don't they just walk!?!?!?!! I'm sure if they just walked they wouldn't wake up any of the "pretend" bats lol! This show was going to jump right when the producers got the idea for the show. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 4:55 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 There are many reasons I hated the show. He tells children to befriend total strangers, play with fire and dangerous stinging insects, put plastic bags over their heads, school is fun (trust me, I know better) many more dangerous stuff. In short, he presents a sugar-coated view of the world to unsuspecting kids. He also destroy children songs by changing them into sweet perversions (I hated the tune of "This old man" since I heard his signature song). -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 4:53 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 It definitely jumped when the first cast began to grow breasts and beards. What was up with Lucy? She was like 17 and the rest of the kids were like 6. She could have been their mother. Why are all the songs so cheesy? Everything that Barney writes or talks about is loving someone. Everyone in this world doesn't love each other! Why did Baby Bop SHRINK? She was this huge retarded 2 or three year old and then suddenly, she shrank and they tried to make her into this cute little thing. Well, It didn't work. The show should definitely be canceled to save little kids whose parents forced them into acting the embarrassment and counseling that's necessary. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 4:53 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Would you want your kids to look anything like the maniacally grinning lobotomized robots on this show? A purple talking dinosaur is more believable than the scary kids. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 4:52 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Leaving your kids alone with the Great Purple Satan is like letting them do drugs. Barney presents an unrealistically sugar-coated world where everyone acts alike. -- Submitted By: (JTScomments) on August 25, 2014, 4:52 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I don't think that we, as adults (and by adults, I mean people who have long outgrown Barney), have much right to talk about how bad the show is/was. It's... Well, yes, it's extremely annoying. But little kids like it. I liked it. My parents were glad to put it on for me, and I enjoyed watching it; it was a huge staple of my TV time. It boned when they brought out two more annoying dinosaurs; one big giant possible-pedophile dino was bad enough. -- Submitted By: (Oleander29) on June 26, 2012, 11:08 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Love 'em or Hate 'em, the people who created this show "The Barney People" were geniuses and probably are a lot wealthier now than I will ever be. I know for a fact that a LOT of marketing research went into the development of the character of Barney (not to mention the show Barney & Friends) and you can't deny that it totally paid off for it's creators. My daughter and son adored this show when they were toddlers but have long since grown out of it. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on March 8, 2012, 10:12 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Travoltron, it might have been some parents who watch the show with their kids but it's not an excuse for extreme hated though. I can see kids making fun of it or some adults disliked it but when it get to the point when an adult (especially one with no kids) watch it with almost insane hate, that deeply troubling. I'm not defending this show or anything because I think it's crap too. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on June 28, 2011, 11:35 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Granted, this show was/is crap, but I never understood the intense HATRED people had for this show in the '90s. People were hanging and burning Barney toys in effigy. Was someone forcing these people to watch a baby's TV show? -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on June 27, 2011, 4:37 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
11 Thanks for clearing that up, SSM. Not to worry, I unintentionally repeated bogus claims about the Beastie Boys (and Sharon Gless's onetime stalker). I can't say I was ever a fan of any of the above but I think its important that the info given here is as factual as possible. P.S. For the record, Barney's the ONLY dinosaur I heartily disliked even for the few micro-seconds it would take to surf past this mess and am thankful he wasn't on when I was five or else I'd likely have thrown tantrums had I been forced to watch him! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 27, 2011, 8:14 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
12 My bad, I looked for more imformation and I just find out it might have been a rumor started by one of the anti-barney website, so it might have been no such episode. I remembered reading the quote back at the old JTS site. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on June 26, 2011, 8:23 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Yes, he did said that. It was also the episode title before PBS pulled it. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on June 26, 2011, 8:00 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
14 SSM, Barney said THAT?! Good grief,didn't the folks funding this want there to BE kids to grow up to help support future pledge drives? Yeesh! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 26, 2011, 6:59 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
15 "Remember kids a stranger is a friend that you haven't met yet". *facepalm* Parents tries to teach kids to be cautious around strangers and this purple idiot leading the kids to potienal danger. Whoever said Barney is a devil is right. BTW, johnnyd I do remembered that song, that's some good times. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on June 25, 2011, 7:24 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
16 i get that it was cheap to make and must have made a TON of moeny for PBS, but it was just so annoying. -- Submitted By: (VeritechRyan) on October 19, 2010, 11:33 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
17 Anyone remember parodying the song at the end? "I hate you, you hate me! Let's go out and kill Barney. With a great big hammer he is on the floor! No more purple dinosaur." Man, such fun. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on September 19, 2010, 12:06 am - (5 votes) - Login to Vote
