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.

I don't know. Barney kind of sucks. I think I would much rather see a bear lol.

I am sure he would have been irritating either way. I still find myself singing some of those songs!

My son loves dinosaurs
more than bears too.
The purple color didn't hurt either.

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.
