Does anyone else here still watch Barney? (or listen to Barney songs?)

<p>Omg his shows and songs of eternal love and happiness and cleanliness are sooooo dazzling:D It's like becoming a baby nestling again :D</p>

<p>Oh lord. 10char</p>

<p><em>stares</em></p>

<p>10 char</p>

<p>Why so shocking? I listen to his wonderful songs every day. It makes me so MAD whenever people make songs about flushing him down the potty :(:(</p>

<p>if we all listened to him, we woudn't have any war or violence. we would all love each other and be a happy family. :)</p>

<p>why doesn't anyone listen to him? i understand that tweens want to rebel against him. but they should return to his wise teachings of eternal peace and love once they're done rebelling.</p>

<p>personally I think Barney should be made required reading for high school students. at least for the sake of moral values.</p>

<p>Omg! I know, right? I love Barney. I've had the biggest crush on him since I first saw him in pre-school.</p>

<p>...I hope this thread is meant to be sarcastic.</p>

<p>Meds not kick in yet, or dying off? :P</p>

<p>Dying off. :p But sometimes they don't really make me less distractible. they just make me more alert, but task-switching is still often a major pain.</p>

<p>**** yo' Barney. Dinosaurs are no good. Get locked with him in a room with no food for a week, and it's done, man. He'll eat your goddamned face. All that stuff about love and compassion is actually a conspiracy. A conspiracy to eat you alive.</p>

<p>Dinosaurs will be dinosaurs. They're carnivores who are indifferent to human life and will eat your ass regardless of how purple and high-on-ecstasy it is. Check out the bears animation on collegehumor.com. Although it's a bit gory (so don't watch it with younger siblings), it makes a good point.</p>

<p>But srsly, BARNEY?!?!?!?!</p>

<p>I'll admit I FLIPPIN' LOVED THE EPISODE Barney Campfire Sing-Along when I was little. I just found it on Youtube. Hell yeah thanks for reminding me</p>

<p>I wish I still had it on VHS... grr</p>

<p>[awkward silence] </p>

<p>hahahahahahahahahahaha :D </p>

<p>I was watching Barney today with my little sister; and you know what, he is awesome!</p>

<p>I'm up to 18 mg... Still nothing. I guess I'm going to end up on 60 mg though, so I have a bit of time to wait. :D</p>

<p>I never watched Barney. What a terrible show.</p>

<p>The criticism section of Barney and Friends page on Wiki kind of humors me:</p>

Although the show has been criticized for its lack of educational value,[12] Yale researchers Dorothy and Jerome Singer have concluded that episodes contain a great deal of age-appropriate educational material, calling the program a "model of what preschool television should be."[13]</p>

<p>One specific criticism is:</p>

<pre><code>[H]is shows do not assist children in learning to deal with negative feelings and emotions. As one commentator puts it, the real danger from Barney is denial: the refusal to recognize the existence of unpleasant realities. For along with his steady diet of giggles and unconditional love, Barney offers our children a one-dimensional world where everyone must be happy and everything must be resolved right away.[14]

<p>It is ranked on TV Guide's List of the 50 Worst TV Shows of All Time at #50.[15]

<p>This isn't a joke is it? I still watch it if I can catch it on, which isn't often. Teletubbies was completely retarded, but Barney is the greatest.</p>

<p>No large purple dinosaurs for me. I turn to Disney for my nostalgia ;)</p>

<p>17 years old and I love Barney and all his PBS friends. Basically most of us watched it during childhood, it made us curious, use our imagination, etc. I just love them! They contributed to my love for reading and writing. Thanks PBS for putting shows for viewers like me! ...eehhhh I need to grow up XD</p>

<p>^ Hahaha miss that</p>

<p>I watched it when I was three, I remember a video with Barney onstage and there was a witch as well. I think that witch contributed to my irrational fear of puppets and witches. But all in all, Barney the Purple Dinosaur is awesome. He's purple, a t-rex, and a friendly dude!</p>
