"Barney and friends" we might of liked it when when we are below 5 but by 7 you see the light. It stinks out loud and on ice. Theres one thing most kids age 6 and above hate about barney. It's stupid edcatanal. Barney might go, "5+1=6. Repeat that kids." Along Bob the builder, Tickle U, Dora etc. It STINKS.
Joy to the world, that barney's DEAD! we barbequed his head! Don't worry about the boOOdy we flushed it down the poOOtty and around and around it goes, and around and around it goes, we found it in the seEEwer we gave it to a neEEwer he found a head of a bass, and shoved it up his ass!, joy TO the wooOOrld that barney's dead.
I hate you
i hate you, you hate me let's go out and KILL bar-ney with a shot gun to his head kick him in the nuts, oops, look at that barney dunce.
I hate this show, it makes kids think the world is nice and friendy, no it's not. And they almost raise kids, for you. That is the parents job, not some dumbass dino. I think this show was made just for lazy Moms and Dads who just plop their kids in front of the tv and say let him raise the brats. So they will leave us alone. Well I think it's time to boycot the show.
What the hell is wrong with the creators? Bring up this junk? If you like this and your under 0. Fine (But no one is). I have a 4 year old brother. Hes like my age! He hates everything that is babyish.If you went to see the actors. Through a brick at them.(Its a Joke)
Whoever Thought Of A Show Which Has No Educational Value And Is So Retarted, Should Be Shot 5 Times In The Chest, Have Himself Tied To The Back Of A City Bus And Let His Dead Body Be Dragged!
Sure I Was A Fan When I Was Like In Diapers! But That Was A Very Long Time Ago, And Personally Nobody Cares! The Actor/Voice Of Barney Is A Freakin' Mental Person, The Kids Are Given 1,000 Dollars To Star In Absolute Crap, And The Actors Who Play Barney, B.J, And The Other Dino. Are Thinking "Who The Hell Wrote This Show? I'm Getting Paid 150,000 A Year Dressing Up As A Freakin' Dinosaur That Gets Made Fun All The Time!
For God Sakes! PBS or Whatever The Hell Your Called. Cancel This Show Once And For All! Put The Show Out Of It's Suicidal Misery And Just Kill It!
the only thing this show is good for is making fun of it....i mean what kind of loser would watch this......well except for 3 year olds.......i watched it when i was three.....but i mean seriously i mean it just some purple freak in a costume saying,"i love you you love me"....
Why TH am I reviewing this? Most of you know what I'm going to say. See my review of Teletubbies. Anyway, this show is not educational in any way. Besides, when your little kids can watch Mr. Roger's Neighborhood, Sesame Street, and The Magic School Bus, there's no reason to watch this. Why doesn't it scare kids? They are a bunch of talking huge dinosaurs! The songs are irritating! If I had a choice between death and watching this, I'd choose death! The characters are weird, and the show, overall, is bad. I'm through, here!
Shit his songs are just as bad as Justin Bieber songs. At least I can take Justin's songs seriously! Yes I hate his songs too. Not only that, at least I don't hear little kids singing with justin Bieber. Barney is a cruddy dinosaur that needs to die. His songs are god awful. Barney is always happy and never be sad. Which is fucking creepy. He makes kids talk to strangers. I wish I never liked that show. People who never watched that show or liking this show are fucking lucky!
Whether we want to admit it or not, as children we all saw Barney the Dinosaur. The show was about a group of kids who are taught by a dinosaur about respect, manners, and other essentials of life to kids. For me though this dinosaur is just downright creepy, even when I was a kid. That voice and the smile he constantly has gives me the chills and I am sure it has given kids nightmares. Also the show teaches the stupidest things like strangers are friends we don't know. Last time I checked we learned to never talk to strangers or if they do talk to us just run away from them to your parent. Also why is everything that is sad usually resolved by singing happily. I hate to tell you this Barney but it doesn't work like that at all. Not everything can be resolved by singing at all. Imagine if Barney was at the sinking of the Titanic and he tried to cheer everyone up with a happy song. The survivors would just chuck him overboard into the water. The show also seems to tell everyone that everyone in the world is happy and no one is a jerk at all. Way to go Barney. Just wait until the kids get a dose of reality and see what the world is really like. I would love to see Barney explain that to the kids. There were some educational values to it like not cheating, respect for others, and so on. So at least this show has some educational effort, but most of the show lacks it most of the time. I also have to ask one thing. Where is the teacher of the school? I don't think the teacher ever makes an appearance on this show at all. Is he/she on permanent vacation? Are dinosaurs the teachers in this universe? My brain is melting over how stupid this show is. While this show does have little educational value to it, there is virtually no redeeming qualities to Barney at all. To think that this show has been on for 19 years as well. This dinosaur has long prolonged the inevitable and should have been extinct long ago. If you are a parent keep your kids away from this dinosaur, he is creepy and scares kids.
This guy is absolutely annoying and stupid in anyways that you can think off.
Plot: A dinosaur named Barney, always misleads the children in the wrong way along with his other dinosaur friends.
Characters: What is worst in this show? Barney itself. I bet that giant cloth is up to no good, his other dinosaur friends are innocent and seems good though. I don't like Barney's design. It has a look that it stares creepily, more deeper. And that smile is just evil. Barney could fit into a death metal band or post-death metal album. Plus he sucks at singing, it sounds like a fly buzzing around. I hate flies. The kids and the other dinosaurs, are okay. Barney is just..... disturbing for be in a kids show.
Educational value: Barney misleads the children to talk anyone that you don't even know. Singing can make everyone happy really fast. Or being a plain sheep, thinking the world is always happy, or no bad people around. Thanks Barney, you made the children more weak by your stupidity. You're more dangerous than Lumpy. Lumpy only kills couple of things by his stupidity, while you making danger in children's lives worldwide.
Overall: -2.1. This dinosaur, would be great for me if he joins a death metal band. I bet he will do good there.
Okay today on the episode of Barney Baby Bop said that she doesn't eat food the same color as me so now my child said he wasn't going to eat greens anymore so please make sure that you know what they are saying before you put it on tv. I am one upset mom right now
Of course, I, too, was among the many kids who grew up on watching Barney. I don't believe I ever really considered it among my favorites from my childhood. There are much better shows of the same format or genre that I preferred to it (and still do). I never really thought much of it and I never noticed just how many flaws there are within this kid show. I stopped watching and following this around the season in which the newer characters, that purple bird whose exact name I forget, Ms. something or other, and that squirrel, Scooter McNutty were introduced. Barney made me think of and remember that Animaniacs episode/segment in which the Warner siblings met the Barney parody, Baloney. I'd just wanted to mention that because I'd like to say the writer (or writers) of that nice shot you (or y'all) took at it.
No offense to any this generation's kids who do love Barney. I and others know that he's not so much for us who are out of the youth demographic now apparently, so evidently he'd no longer appeal to us (if ever, at all). But that's not the only reason. Many of us feel that this isn't among the best or greatest children shows of all time and that there have been much better for the youngsters to watch. It astounds me that this series has been running for about two decades now and hasn't gone extinct yet. I concur with others who think the same. It's high time for this to end now. I don't know if I can truly consider it overrated. Overrated by who? Other than the majority of children maybe. Surely not us older viewers. But it definitely has been overexposed for the longest. Until coming across the reviews mention the episode about strangers supposedly being your friends, I think I'd forgotten about that one. I read a review of Barney on another site that that episode has since been banned, following the controversy of a girl who was kidnapped by one. Just what was (or what were) the writer (or writers) thinking? Sending that wrong message to the young viewers. Another bad message I forgot about is not encouraging nor condoning individualism. There seems to be more flaws than the very few perfections there are with this show. And there's just so much wrong with it than not. Again, there have been other kid programs far more superior than this. If I had kids, I'd show and raise them up on those instead. And hopefully, Barney wouldn't be their favorite either. Although I now agree that Barney can be a bad influence on children, I'm not totally sure if I should nor could prevent my own from watching it. They might still want to watch it anyway regardless and I'm not sure I could ban them, even if it's for their own good. I don't recommend this as one of the first early education series toddlers should watch. Barney is brainwashing rubbish and detrimental to one's learning, and development.
This show is the suckiest show in the history of lame shows. So let me get this straight: A purple dinosaur doll comes to life and runs around with a bunch of little kids. Okay. This is how I see it: A purple, man-eating dinosaur is leading a lot of kids around. He leads the kids to a little old restaraunt. He leads them into a dark room. Then he goes back outside...without any kids following along. Then if you're close you hear Barney say ,"Yummy in my tummy."Barney is a stalker. Plus, The show is for babies, not 15 year old boys (like me).
I Know that this is a pregrade small children's show, But I Never standed this show in my Life (Neither when I Was Younger). But Please tell me, How did this show last this long, That's impossible. I Mean a show that is a quadrillion (Actually ''Gogolplex'') times Better was cancelled after a year, and this garbage keeps on airing. This show really needs to get canceled an it is high time that the dinousaors get extinct after almost 20 years of this trash on TV. But what type of shamefull Trash is this. Also something that really distracted me is that annoying yellow dinaousaur.
Dora The Explorer is now known as the worst educational show of all time. However,looking back in the 90's,there was another show that seemed like the prodessor,and it's still around. And this show is called Barney and Friends. This show is about a purple dinosaur named Barney who teaches kids life lessons. Now the first problem I have is the fact how the dinosaurs look. Barney is just downright creepy,so is BJ(that sounds wrong),Baby Bop and that Orange dinosaur. This show also has terrible lessons that teach kids the wrong things. For example,a stranger is a friend we don't know. I did my research,and I thought we had to avoid strangers as kids. Way to go,Barney. Another lesson is how there are no jerks in the world. Seriously Barney? I want to see the look on a child's face when they get bullied. But the worst part about this show are the stinkin musical numbers. I mean,they are repetitive,and most of them are stupid,especially the idiotic "I love you,you love me" song. And what's worse is the fact that despite this show sucks,it's still on the air. Why? This show has gotten negative reception,and yet PBS Kids still continues to air it. Overall,PBS Kids,please cancel this. It's nothing more than a terrible educational show that teaches kids wrong things,and it's the prodessor of Dora.
Who came up with this idea that an unintelligent, indecent, brianless dinosaur who incoherently plays with kids and uneducationally not teaching them. I wish this show is cancelled. It is probably cancelled now. Since, I don't watch this show anymore, at least people can have quite a TV time. It ruined the 90's and 00's and the nowadays, it is probably still airing. Stupid dinosaur thinks he can air his unpopular show all the time!!!!!!!!! They need to take it OFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF! I'm so sick of this show brainwashing me to death! I wish it was cancelled! Alot of teenagers and adults hate this show! Because it has a lack of educational value! STUPID SHOW!
If this show was cancled I'd jump up and down. Literally. This is not only the worst kid show but the worst show on the whole entire planet. A talking dinosaur? Not in my world. I never even wacthed it when I was a kid. I only watched Thomas the tank engine, Shining Time Station and Theodore Tugboat. Now those are kid-mature shows. Not like this one. This show is so stupid. All they do is sing dumb songs to make the little children go nuts! Sadly, two of the three shows are cancled. These shows are 100% better. Here's a bit of advice. DON'T WATCH THIS SHOW! CHANGE THE CHANNEL! Or watch it at your own risk. You are liable to be brain-dead!I can imagine now Thomas runing over Baney now with purplr ooze everywhere!
And i thought it was the most retarded show i've ever seen. I'm surprised it hasn't cancelled yet. They're so repetitious with their song, dance, and educating that I felt like i was watching the same things in different episodes. Barney's not even funny and never was and they're teaching kids things they already learned before they even went to preschool. And in some of those episodes when one of the kids was either grieving over a loss or was having a bad day, there was too much of the "just kiss the boo-boo away" attitude, which DOESN'T help children to cope with their problems at all.
The fat purple dinosaur sucks. It sucked on--April Fool's Day too, and it sucks still today. Is it even on anymore? I used to tear off one of the eyes on a plush Barney doll I had...I must have unconsciously voiced my opinion about him. The big purple-chemical colored bozo has cheerfully brainwashed our children for years about stuff they could have learned on their own. I felt 1 degree dumber than I should have, watching this piece of garbage. The songs are annoying, the morals reek of parental control, and the children look way too happy to be around a fat purple Tyrannosaurus Rex--don't they eat meat? Perhaps that's why the kids disappear every season...
...in other words: watch something else. Between the Lions, maybe?
This is one of the worst preschool shows ever. I'm not saying that because I'm not in the target audience, it's just not something for small children to take to heart.
The morals are awful. A stranger is a friend you haven't met yet? It's okay to touch dangerous stinging insects? It's okay to put a plastic bag over your head? No! In fact, I remember one episode where this girl is sad because her cat died or something. How does Barney tell her to cope? By singing happily with everyone else. Terrible. Here's another one. One kid wants to sing and dance, one kid wants to color, and the other one wants to read a story. Now, do the kids go off and do what they wanted by themselves? No. They have to all take turns. Oy vey...
What do we learn? That everyone in the world is happy and that no one is mean on this planet. *shakes head*
1 out of 10. This is a terrible example of children's television.
"Barney and Friends" is the popular PBS preschooler show about the adventures of Barney and his friends.
The tile character Barney is a purple dinosaur that seems to have undergone botox and always seem to smile all the time. Barney educates these somewhat lifeless children about the lessons of life. Throughout the show, Barney would usually dance and sing with the children as part of the lesson. The lesson is usually told with a problem being resolved by a story that Barney likes to tell. At the end, Barney hugs and kisses and says good bye to the kids and at the end becomes a toy again.
"Barney" is a show that sounds educational but, it isn't. This show's basic problem is that the kids are too perfect, because in Sesame Street the kids are not perfect. The kids in Sesame Street are more realistic like in one episode there was a deaf girl and in another episode there was a kid in a wheelchair. Another problem, Barney is a weird choice for these kids' mentor because dinosaurs seem too scary for little kids. In "Sesame Street" the Muppets were not scary and were nice mentors. Also, it's kind of creepy to see kids that age could have an imaginary friend. Another creepy thing is that Barney is hugging and kissing these kids and I felt that a dinosaur hugging a group of children was too creepy.
"Barney" is a very flawed show, I think at best this might entertain very little kids maybe one and under. "Barney" does deserve a place in my list of the worst shows I've ever seen.
I hate this show. Only watched it once. My brother taugh me a poen about barney that I used to sing everytime barney came on. Here it is... I hate you. You hate me. Let's get together and kill Barney. With a fork and a knife and two by four. No more purple dinosuar. The End
My cousins are 4 and 6 and they think barney's a babie show.
they always have. Here is another poem
I hate you, you hate me,
We're a disfunctional family.
Then a shot rang out and Barney hit the floor,
No more purple dinosaur The End Here is another one
I hate you
You hate me
We're a dysfunctional family
With a punch and a kick Barney's on the floor
No more purple dinosaur\ The End here is another one
I hate you
You hate me
Lets get togther and kill Bareny...
With a great big slap
and A shot from me to you
wont you say you help me too The End Here is another one....
I hate you You hate me Let's all plot to kill Barney When he slips on the wax and falls to the floor, No more purple dinosaur! The End
I got a question. Why is this show still on? It has been running since 1992, and almost everyone here absolutely hates Barney. I find the show boring, insufficient, and an insult to the name of t.v. Staring at a blank television screen is more entertaining than this. I used to like this show. Boy, I was a big idiot (I was also only ages 1-4). If I ever see Barney in person, I am going to smack him in the face. Hard! Super hard! With a metal baseball bat! I think Barney is a terrible show. If you hate the show too, press the green thumbs up at the bottom right hand corner. If you disagree, press the red thumbs down right next to it. I hate this show so much! I hate it when barney sings. He sings in every episode! All of the songs are annoying. Especially his "I love you, you love me". Here is a fun song for barney!!!! " I hate you, you hate me, lets all plot to kill barney. With a giant machine gun and blood on the floor, no more purple dinosaur" Like it? That is a song I like. Anyway, Avoid this show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Die barney!!!!
I don't know why I watched this when I was a kid. Honestly, what was wrong with me? Looking at this show now, it just as gotten even worse, if that is at all possible. I have to say this show isn't at all educational and the basics of the show doesn't really have any educational value to kids. It may be decent entertainment for kids with the colorful dinosaurs, but other than that, there isn't much else to be entertained with. I have to say they have come up with new songs that are worse than the older ones. Overall, I can't stand this show. Thank you.
i think this is a great show for kids starting school. it entertained me, but over the years i experienced bigger and better shows, like \"The Suite life of Zack & Cody\". i grew out of the show (Barney) and now i think it is cheesy. (very cheesy). this show is very old. i think it is time they put it to an end, even if people still enjoy watching it. there is always something more to watch the just Barney. besides barney is now lame, they don\'t need it on TV.
it\'s great for kids, but not me. now that kids know it is lame to watch barney they don\'t watch it. It\'s Time They Put It To An End!!!!!!!!! it\'s lame.
