The Conundrum That Is Barney

Does it disturb anyone else that Barney is obviously a T-Rex? Andrew borrowed a Barney DVD from the library this past week, and we watched it together last night. And it occured to me that Barney is the most terrifying dinosaur ever to walk the earth, singing "I love you, you love me..." Is that a little weird to anyone else?

When I was a kid, my brother and sister loved to watch Land of the Lost. I loved it, too, but was so scared of the beginning, where the t-rex eats the camera at the end of the opening music.

So I just don't get it. Do you?

  1. Emily,
    I have to admit that my girls grew up during their toddler years on Barney. I used to get offended when people "Barney Bashed".

    I guess I never gave it a thought as to what type of dinosaur he was. He is a bright color and very energetic. My girls did learn a lot from the shows. Actually, my 15 year old still has a few favorite episodes that she still watches once in a while.

    I also have to admit that when my oldest started out growing Barney my youngest was just starting. It was like a double dose. I was very tired of Barney when she quit watching on a regular basis.

    Isn't is amazing how two people can look at the same thing and have totally different opinions?
