Found on


Barney & Friends is an American children's television series aimed at children from ages 1 to 8, created by Sheryl Leach and produced by HIT Entertainment. It premiered on PBS on April 6, 1992. The series features the title character Barney, a purple anthropomorphic tyrannosaurus rex who conveys educational more.


I have to agree with this. I used to watch this when I was younger, and I completely regret it. My dad wanted to scream his head off when he watched this with me, and I am so ashamed of myself! You know why this show is one of the worst T.V. shows of all time? First of all, it lacks educational value. He doesn't teach kids how to deal with negative feelings or emotions, and it refuses to recognize the existence of unpleasant realities. This show is WAY too happy, as it is unicorns and rainbows, sunshine and flowers. Barney lives in a perfect world where everyone must be happy and everything must be resolved right away. This is not the case in the real world! There are actually some episodes where the characters lie, steal, and cheat, and Barney doesn't punish them or scold them! He has a lack of changes in facial expressions, and always has that big, toothy smile on his face. It is time to take Barney off the air! Please don't make fun of me for watching this! This show sucks!

Barney has gained reception as being one of the worst T.V. shows ever. The main reason being that everybody is too "cool" or too "mature." "I can't watch Barney because I'm too cool! " You don't understand that it is a kid's show only. You don't remember what it is like being a kid that young. You don't even know what Barney contains!

Something I will say is that Barney overstayed his welcome. It was on the air for almost 20 years and got very repetitive and stale the last half of his run. But the older episodes are the good ones. Unlike, say, Sesame Street, Barney's age range is smaller like under the age of 7. Everybody talks in cheesy and juvenile voices. That is because it is a juvenile show! Many kid shows are like that! Barney is no different. "Why doesn't Barney teach things like counting and not dangers of drugs and everything? " Tell me, what kind of 3-year-old is hooked on drugs? Give an example of a toddler that does not need ...more

I HATE YOU, YOU HATE ME WERE A ' FAMILY, WITH A GREAT BIG PUNCH IN THE NUTS FROM YOU TO ME WHY don't YOU HATE ME THREE! That's how I can describe Barney My 4 year old sister hates it and when ever the stupid show is on, she would scream 'CHANGE THE CHANNEL'! '. There is absolutely no point to it and the whole time

they tell stupid stories.Barney is boring and whenever it is on, I feel like blowing up the DANG T.V. So, the lesson of Barney today kids is, TO BLOW HIM UP INTO ASHES.I JUST HOPE MY SISTER'S BARNEY PLUSH WONT COME TO LIFE CAUSE he's GOING TO TEACH HER TO ACT DUMB.This show also scars me Don't stare into Barneys too much because you will have nightmares. So on Halloween night if someone dresses up as barney and are a your front dour, try to not look at the barney costume,

barney looks so dumb! So uneducational. Hate! Hate! Hate! This show is something to

exaggerate about. My sister isn't learning anything when she is watching it. That's why she quit ...more

For an educational show, it has no educational value. It lives in a world where everything is right and all issues must be resolved in a minute. News flash: the world isn't like that, don't teach kids that it is like that.

I used to love this show as a kid as I'm sure a lot of kids did but now barney is just a tired act and needs to be gotten rid of. I mean all the rest of the dinosaurs died out so I think its time for this big dumb purple monstrosity to do the same thing

Honestly when I was younger I was terrified of barney.. This is like one of the worst shows ever! Now I am sorry if he was a regular part of YOUR childhood but he sure wasn't in mine. Barney doesn't really teach you anything.

You know you hurt other kids who love Barney like my brother. What is wrong with you? By the way, Selena and Lovato were there! Back to that, you know because you're just teens and 20's that hate kiddie shows... Well Dora should replace this show.

Barney the Dinosaur is just terrible! Did you know there is such thing as National Barbie and Barney Backlash Day? Mark your calendars, It's observed on December 16! It's where you can take a vacation and deny that Barney and Barbie exist. - HondaCivic

He survived extinction for THIS? - Puga

Barney Sucks
Naked purple "thing" - samuelMCL7

Barney is the worst show ever all it is about dumb dinosaur that has the same face no matter what he only has one feeling happy this show will teach to smile no matter what just like the bible said there is time for and there is a time sadness

In my opinion, we shouldn't be talking about baby shows anymore especially if you're at a old age. The show is for babies not us - JaysTop10List

I hate you, you hate me, let's chase Barney up a tree, with a baseball bat let's hit him in the head, uh-oh looks like Barney's dead!

How Is this show supposed to be educational? All its about is some 12 year old kids who's parents made them go be on T.V. so they could say there kids were on T.V.. CURSE YOU BARNEY!

How about this purple dinosaur gets TNT stuffed into his throat and he inhales matches? This show is extremely violent and inappropriate! - Goatworlds

My parents used to force me to watch this when I was little. IT WAS TORTURE MAN JUST TORTURE

Look, I am okay with shows for toddlers, there is only a few I actually dislike, and this is one of them. The reason I dislike this show is because I heard Barney was a pedophile, which is just stupid, and the songs are sucky and annoying for a kids show standard. - AnimeDrawer

This makes sanjay and craig look like the godfather!

I don't love you, don't love me, we're not even a family, with a one shot, two shot, three shot, four, No more purple dinosaur.
Joy to the world that Barney's dead. We barbecued his head. And then, we took his body and flushed it down the potty. Around around it went. Around around it went. Around-- Around it went.

How in the name of WHAT how on Earth did they all survive the dinosaur extinction? They should have been the first to go extinct. Seriously. I'm surprised they even lived long enough to see the extinction day!

If you watch it you're having a nightmare.
Reason 1. Annoying as hell
Reason 2. It's not even funny

I only watched one episode of that when I was 1 and stopped watching it. Everybody hates that show it should be #1, not #4.

There's no reason for this show to be this high on the list. People are acting so immature. - RalphBob

I hate you, you hate me, were a stupid family! - Stephen2

Barney Is The Worst Show Of All Time I Really Hate Barney Barney Should Be Of The Very Top #1 The Worst Show Of All Time
