|“||Oh, hello. My name is Baby Bop and I'm looking for my blankie. It's lost. Have you seen it? It's this big, and it's really, really soft and it's yellow. Do you know where my blankie is?||„|
|~ Baby Bop in Barney's Greatest Adventure|
Baby Bop is the deuteragonist in the Barney & Friends television show and was a minor character in the Barney and the Backyard Gang series. She is a green triceratops, and one of Barney's best friends.
She was first introduced in "Barney in Concert" (1991) and has been on the show since then. Her name was given by the Backyard Gang Originally two years old, later she turned three in "Look at Me! I'm Three", making three her favorite number.
Creation and Development
According to the co-creator to Barney, Sheryl Leach, Baby Bop was created as a foil character to Barney. Wherever Barney is outgoing but down-to-earth, Baby Bop is very shy but can be ecstatic often at times.
Appearance and Design
Baby Bop is known for wearing a pink bow in her hair and very prettyish pink slippers on her feet. She wears them all the time and she is almost never seen with them off! She also has those big eyelashes. Baby Bop wears her ballet slippers even when she is running around and playing. Her colors are an inverse of Barney's purple and green color scheme.
Baby Bop's appearance has gone through several changes over the years. When she made her debut in "Barney in Concert", she was taller than the kids and about the very same height as Barney. She also used to speak in third-person, rather than first-person. In Season 2, Baby Bop got shorter to better suit her age of two (and later three) years old. In Season 3, Baby Bop was redesigned slightly so that her jaw could move for the very first time in her life. Her design has remained this way since then.
