YMMV: Barney Bunch

  • Acceptable Targets: Just about anyone can become the subject of a Barney Bunch video but the more disliked a celebrity (or infamous person) is, the more likely they are to appear in one.
    • Blood On The Dance Floor, a scene-electronica band from Florida, are so hated that a video was made in which they audition for the Barney Bunch and are rejected.
  • Alternative Character Interpretation
  • Broken Base: Specifically over pre and post-2011 videos.
  • Critical Dissonance: While the Barney Bunch videos were very popular on Newgrounds, many of the site admins disliked their popularity. So much that at one point, if you searched 'Barney' into the search bar you wouldn't receive back results.
  • Critical Research Failure: Sometimes, when a person new to these videos makes one, they'll get things absurdly wrong, ranging from the scenes of a Drew Pickles Goes To video being out of order, to Yogi Bear and Pube Muppet being Drew's boyfriends.
    • The Barney Bunch Goes to IHOP, the first video featuring the Quaker Queer, showed Drew and company raping a female waitress for getting their orders wrong.
  • Deader Than Disco: Ever since MrCaptainJeff's third account got terminated, it's basically an accomplishment for a new video to get 300 views, let alone 1000.
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: Rape lets you get your way.
  • Fridge Brilliance: The Quaker Queer was added in 2009, a seemingly random character - unless you remember the episode of Rugrats that centered around Chuckie's fear of "the guy on the oatmeal box."
  • God-Mode Sue: Yogi Bear
  • It's the Same, Now It Sucks: Some people's reaction to "Drew Pickles Goes To" videos.
  • Ron the Death Eater: Barely any characters that were turned gay are known for being mean, let alone having the idea of raping anyone.
  • So Bad, It's Good: No one will admit that the videos are skillfully made, but one's opinion of them depends on one's sense of humor. The self-aware humor in some later videos definitely helps.
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks:
    • Yogi Bear, when revealed, said he was gayer than Drew. Cue Internet Backdraft.
    • Some classic video makers tend to dislike new videos.
