  • My 2 year old has a huge Sesame Street obsession. But up until a couple weeks ago, Barney used to come on PBS after Sesame Street, and I'd just let him go on and watch Barney, too. Now that they've changed their lineup, he sits there and cries for "Barkey" (what he calls Barney) after Sesame Street goes off and Barney doesn't come on. It's kinda funny in a sad little way.

  • I think I'd blind myself with a rusty screwdriver if either one of my kids ever fell in love with that big purple nightmare.

    For my kids, its Spongebob and Wow Wow Wubbzy.

  • My son is only 1 and all ready likes Barney. He claps his hands and bobs his head to the songs. He watches the same video every morning with his snack.

  • My daughter yells for Barney too, every morning. She has learned so much from the shows though so I am happy. I don't mind it cause I remember a lot of the shows from when I was little.
