Barney is so much better than Anime. Here is why.

Note: Admin, do not remove this list, or you will explode.

The Top Ten

1 Barney is more entertaining than anime

Barney is an anime but LazyTown and Sonic Boom are better. One of the worst animes, along with Breadwinners.

Um...Barney is my favourite anime - Dovewing303

"Note: Admin, do not remove this list, or you will explode."
Lol what? - BorisRule

I really enjoy classics like Barney & Friends. - Caillou_is_awesome

2 Anime is bad

Barney and friends is good

Yes, It Is!

Barney is worse than Dragon Ball, Saint Seiya, Yuyu Hakusho, One Piece, Hunter X Hunter, Naruto, Bleach, Kingdom Hearts and Gintama. - AldoFitrian

GENIUS! You know, you should really be an online reviewer on Youtube. I knew this list was going to be fun.

3 Real men watch Barney

It's For Toddlers.

Last time I checked, It was real men watch My Little Pony. There are bronies, but there are no bronasaurs.

Yeah, to show that they're truly manly, and not cowards, that they'll watch anything, no matter the quality. Well, if you're comparing watching Barney to climbing Mount Everest, then yeah.

Real men play the House of the Dead, Fatal Frame, Killzone, Battlefield, Halo, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, Mario and other games can play by any sexes in all games. Real men watch porn anime, gory anime, violence anime like: Dragon Ball, Saint Seiya, Naruto, One Piece, Bleach, Yuyu Hakusho, etc. Finally, real men watch Yu-Gi-Oh! Series. - AldoFitrian

So, you're saying that real men watch crap but play good games?

4 Anime is for nerds

I'm sick and tired of hearing the word "nerd" as an insult.

Same I don't see the word as a bad thing. Boring is a more insulting word than weird or nerd or dork. - Anonymousxcxc

Nope, anime isn't for nerds. It's for everyone. - AldoFitrian

Do cool kids ever talk about about barney the dinosaur? NO

Do cool kids ever talk about anime? No. - BarneyTheDinosaurRocks

5 Barney has great characters

Barney is my waifu. - RoseWeasley

No! The Characters in Gintama are better than the Characters in Barney. - AldoFitrian

Ah, barney, A child at heart and a child molester in mind, sorry for feeding troll though - styLIShT

Barney has this really cute dinosaur that entertains kids. - Powerfulgirl10

6 Anime is uncreative

Anime never brings anything new to the table. It's always going on lame adventures to defeat the villain with stupid magic like "Pokey balls" or whatever they're called. At least Barney is actually creative. A purple dinosaur singing I love you? Genius idea! I never would have thought of that myself. - BarneyTheDinosaurRocks

I wish Barney was an orange dinosaur though, just due to the purple-ness, I stopped watching mid-season - styLIShT

Barney is uncreative and unimaginative. I hope Goku, Seiya, Yusuke, Gon, Luffy, Naruto, Ichigo, Sora and Gintoki kill this evil dinosaur. - AldoFitrian

Very uncreative. - Therandom

True. At least Barney has different episode plots. Anime is just like: Training magic... going on a long journey... defeat the villain... blah, blah, blah...

7 Barney has better morals

Nope, Barney has worse morals than One Piece and Naruto even in Kingdom Hearts. - AldoFitrian

You're just trying to defend anime cause you love it. You think battling is a good moral? Barney wins this round. - TeamRocket747

Whenever someone needs something, Barney is able to give them whatever they want and make everything perfect. It's quite crazy if you think about it. - BarneyTheDinosaurRocks

And they have nothing to do with magic.

Barney makes kids have good behavior,anime makes kids believe in some kind of magic - Nateawesomeness

8 Boku no Pico is the only half-decent anime

1v1 me in thetoptens, I swear to me dad, m8 - BorisRule

Yeah, the worst anime is just Boku no Pico and Barney and Friends is worse than Dragon Ball, Saint Seiya, Yuyu Hakusho, Hunter X Hunter, One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, Kingdom Hearts, Gintama, God of War and the worst anime with the worst game. - AldoFitrian

Boku no Pico Sucks!

Seriously what the heck is this Boku no Pico anime. It sounds bad-weird to me. Worse than the stuff I hear about this anime called School Days. - Anonymousxcxc

9 Barney is more popular

YOU'RE WRONG! Barney is much less popular. It's just one of those trolls that's trying to get our attention. Oh and one more thing! BARNEY SUCKS!

Very. Well, even though I hate Barney, he's still better than anime.

Barney is very popular. Very Infamously Popular, that is.

Everyone I know likes Barney, so that should be enough proof of how popular it is. - BarneyTheDinosaurRocks

10 Unlike anime, Barney doesn't make people weeaboos

Get this to number one bruh - EpicJake

But I became a Barboo - styLIShT

The Contenders

11 Barney got better as it went on; Anime got worse

I actually agree with Barney getting better. As much as I hate Barney and friends, The original backyard gang series was a lot worse.

If you are talking about the way the Barney looked in the late 1980's, then I would agree. I like the way Barney was in the 1990's. I don't like the way the most recent or the late 1980's Barney looked. I prefer the Barney in between. - anonygirl

Anime was never good. - Therandom

I know right? You think something so bad can't get worse but it does. - Therandom

Anime started off bad and got worse over the years.

But truth be told, anime already sucks.

12 Barney has no big breasted girls

I totally agree. Big-breasted girls are very, VERY disturbing. And the fanbase makes the breasts EVEN worse!

Yup has no anime girls just little kids talking and singing with a grown man in a costume - speed

Name one anime that doesn't have a big breasted girl

But in all seriousness, My Hero Academia (yes, Momo is fan service, but her boobs are normal size) - RoseWeasley

This is the only thing I agree with. - EspioTheChameleon

13 Barney is sexy

Extremely sexy

Daddy :’) - 3DG20

14 Barney influenced the world in a good way; Anime hasn't
15 Barney is more original
16 Barney is more educational than Anime
17 Not as much anti-feminism

What does feminism have to do with this list? - BorisRule

18 Barney helps kids get ready for school

Sesame Street also does that - maddierocks

19 Anime is creepy and gross
