Show Summary

Since 1992 Barney, Baby Bop, and B.J. have brought smiles to our faces with their non-stop adventures, stories, games, friends and, of course, the Barney Bag. Normally focusing on younger audiences, Barney teaches respect, courtesy, manners and many other essentials in life. Most children in the age group normally consisting of 2-8 watch Barney. Many of us have grown out of Barney but there are generations still to come who will enjoy Barney. The series won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Live and Direct to Tape Sound Mixing.


Characters:

Barney: His role on the show is to show everyone a good time. He has great friends whom sometimes visit the kids and tell stories or take them on adventures. He even has a bag of goodies known as the Barney Bag.

B.J.: He visits on occasion to play with Barney and his friends. B.J.'s role on the show is simply to help out or play games although he normally visits because he's looking for something he has lost.

Baby Bop: Baby Bop, who carries her blankie wherever she goes, is kind-hearted and very polite. She normally tags along with her big brother B.J. She does, on occasion, lose her blankie but with Barney's help, she always finds it. ((Trivia buffs: Baby Bop's favorite number is three.)

Barney & Friends Theme Song (to the tune of "Yankee Doodle"):

Barney is a dinosaur From our imagination And when he's tall, he's what we call A dinosaur sensation Barney's friends are big and small They come from lots of places After school, they come to play And sing with happy faces Barney shows us lots of things Like how to play pretend ABCs and 1-2-3s And how to be a friend Barney comes to play with us Whenever we may need him Barney can be your friend, too If you just make-believe him.

The Ending Song:

I love you You love me We're a happy family With a great big hug and a kiss from me to you Wont you say you love me too. I love you you love me We're best friends like friends should be With a great big hug and a kiss from me to you Wont you say you love me too.

  • Barney and Friends sucks so hard

    1.0
    I hate Barney so much. He's very creepy and he thinks the world is a happy place where no one is a jerk. He needs to learn that we live in a world filled with fuckers and bitches. I would rather swim in toilet water than watch this idiotic show.
  • Don't come back!

    You scary piece of junk. You need to die. I DON'T LIKE YOU, WHAT I'LL SAY IS:

    Barney, you are never worth it! I'm glad it's over, LEAVE ME ALONE!

    Barney is an enemy- and he is so bad to me and you!
  • Die Barney, die!!!!

    I hate Barney with a burning passion. Thank god it was cancelled. If he was real, I would shot him with a shotgun.
  • Okay, but this show is for the tiny kids

    7.0
    For little kids, but still important for children who like it. I used to watch him. HE WAS ADORABLE!!!
  • A Show That's Not For a Majority of the Population On Earth

    4.0
    Okay. Barney. Is there any other show with a character that people just can't stand? Let's just get one thing straight, this is a BABY show. Not a kid's show, a baby show. I'm suggesting that you shouldn't let your kid watch this is he/she is at least 4, and that is the main problem with this show. It could've been more of a success for children exiting their toddler years (maybe 6 and younger) if it wasn't so damn corny, but any kid who is at that age most likely will look down on Barney and Friends, just because of how cheesy it was, and that's not really good TV material. I'll give it a 4 at best.moreless
