History

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.

Trivia

  • 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.
  • Barney loves hugs.
