Fact of the Day: Dinosaurs Are Cooler

The beloved purple dinosaur Barney from the TV series Barney & Friends, was originally suppose to be a teddy-bear. When the show's creator Sheryl Leach's toddler showed a interest in dinosaurs, she decided to make Barney a T-Rex.

  10. Barney is a T-Rex? I knew he was supposed to be a dinosaur but I had no idea he was so pedigreed. I do remember getting queasy all those times my son danced and sang with him when he was on TV.
