Seems like an odd choice for a character to bring to a movie, especially this many years later.


That said, now I want them to give it to Platinum Dunes so they can make a realistic (albeit oddly colored) singing purple T-Rex.

That way kids of today and fans of yesterday can truly believe that he really exists... and learn that a giant predatory reptile only wants to teach you about love and friendship, and crap like that. (Twist ending, he eats them and is carted off to the next Jurassic World park.)

Not interested in this movie. Was never really a fan of Barney, though I watched bits of the show in the mid 90s, as there was nothing else on. Didn’t know it lasted so long. It was ok imo. Loved the parody Animaniacs did of Barney, though.

If he's a real dinosaur and he eats the children... how is he a cannibal?

He'd probably eat other fuzzy dinosaurs too, if he could find any.

ORRRRR maybe he already did?

WE DON'T KNOW!!!

I was going from personal memory, but there are some links below. The links don’t describe how Barney and Nickelodeon merchandise were flooding stores in late 1993 and early 1994, though.

On The Subject of Barneymania

1992: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.lat...ml%3f_amp=true

1993: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.lat...ml%3f_amp=true

On The Subject of Nickelodeon Cartoons

1993: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.lat...ml%3f_amp=true

The start of mid 90s,in general, was the time of the TalkBoy (not to be confused with Game Boy ()), Barney, Treasure Trolls, The Uncanny X-Men, Street Fighter 2 versus Mortal Kombat, Ren and Stimpy, Disney’s Aladdin, Sonic the Hedgehog, Charlotte Hornets merchandise, Batman The Animated Series, and Spawn comic books, IIRC. TMNT was starting to look like an early 90s phenomenon in late 1994 when MMPR took over completely.

Why the F*ck is "Michael" such a hard name for people to spell?

Is it the Anniversary of this show or something? Why bring up another film for this so called purple dinosaur? Once upon a time as a young kid I used to like him but as you get older, well.

What do kids of this current generation think of him? I'm curious.

At no point do any of these articles support your claim.

There are no news articles about kid trends replacing other kid trends.

Here are some pictures of the Nickelodeon toy aisle at TRU from the mid 1990s: https://m.facebook.com/1TheNostalgic...6704498034933/

Here is a video featuring the Barney aisle at JCPenney in 1992:

People underestimate Barney, is there even a show in the 90s that didn't reference Barney in some way? I don't think any other preschool show has had that kind of impact, not teletubbies, not blues clues, not dora and all of these were huger in their own right.

I have no idea how they'd make a Barney movie work, but hey if they made a Dora movie somehow then perhaps it's not impossible. CG Barney here we come.

Maybe something like Winnie the Pooh and make him a live stuffed animal. So his plushie form for the whole movie. That’d be cute.

The still for that Barney movie looks like he's hanging a noose around that kid. How bad do you have to screw up your life for Barney to abandon you? That guy put a positive spin on everything.

In my first post to the reaction of this movie being made I mentioned that problems don't get solved right away by singing happy songs I suddenly remembered that "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music tries to give that message. I still think that Richard Rogers and Oscar Hammerstein meant well when they wrote that song for the Broadway show. When the cast from the film reunited on The Oprah Winfrey Show back in 2010 I believe it was Julie Andrews who said the movie might've been on the verge of being a little too saccharine when talking about some of the reviews the film got for its initial release.. Rogers also said this:

I still think that the film holds up very well to this day and has beautiful messages. After all, it was added the National Film Registry in 2001 for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". The people who wrote the songs for Barney, however, were going the same route of Care Bears, especially with the 80s movies and it just didn't work. They were also mainly focused on consumerism as well.
