The show is infamous for not exactly being very well-liked among older kids, adults and teenagers (as, being aimed at such young children, it never managed to be terribly engaging or poignant to anyone outside its target demographic in the same way that ''Sesame Street'''s most legendary moments did), to the point that [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-Barney_humor anti-Barney humor]] became a borderline fad in TheNineties. As for parents, well, 30 minutes of free babysitting buys you a LOT of tolerance. And [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment we will say]] [[FlameBait no more]] about it.

Live action television series aimed at pre-school and younger children that started airing on Creator/{{PBS}} in [[TheNineties 1992]]. Created by Texan teacher Sheryl Leach in 1987, Barney started out as a regionally successful home video series called ''Barney and the Backyard Gang'' before being picked up by the network for a regular series. The inspiration behind the show's creation was that there weren't many programs that educated very young children at the time [[note]]and by this, she meant ''very'' young, preschool or ''pre''-preschool children; ''Series/SesameStreet'' was aimed at preschool and early school-age children at the time Sheryl Leach made that criticism, and she found it too complex for younger children. [[/note]]. Starring the title character as a friendly authority figure, a surrogate for the young girls in the form of Baby Bop, two other dinosaurs named B.J. and Riff (introduced 2006), and [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters an ever-shifting cast of young kids]], its setting was once a elementary school, but now takes place in a local park. The story (such that it is) focuses largely on the importance of imagination and delivering {{A|nAesop}}esops suitable for very young children.
