Barney the Dinosaur is the titular protagonist of the franchise of the same name. He is a two hundred million years (two dinosaur years) old, six-foot tall purple Tyrannosaurus Rex with a green tummy and green spots which include three of them on his back and five more on his tail, and small yellow fingernails and toenails, who comes to life through a child's imagination. He is best known for his friendly, optimistic and wise personality and positive attitude. He gives great hugs.
Barney is a purple Tyrannosaurus rex with a green stomach, green spots on his back and tail, and yellow fingernails and toenails who comes to life through the imaginations of young children. Starting out as a plush toy, when kids use their imagination, Barney arrives with a plush custome and gives them a great big hug and helps them learn various valuable lessons about life. Barney loves getting hugs from everyone.
Some concept names for Barney were "Cosby", "Colby", and "Danny".
Barney's favorite foods are peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch (with a glass of milk), vegetables, pumpernickel bread, and pistachios (as of the Season 11 episode of the same name). Barney is an omnivore who eats meat and plants.
In the Barney & the Backyard Gang series, Barney had to be kept a secret from the parents. That running gag lasted until "Three Wishes" where Micheal and Amy's mom is informed on who Barney is. She was pleasantly surprised.
Although he celebrates his birthday in the Barney franchise, he remains over 200 million years old.
