Highlights from my teenage years:
“I hate you, you hate me, let’s get together and kill Bar-ney!”
The Barney mod for Doom.
As a dad whose pre-K son was obsessed – OBSESSED – with Barney for three solid years back in the '90s, that was a cathartic video for me. Thank you.
Even god hates Barney!
I wonder how many little kids were traumatized by watching Barney die in front of their eyes.
Couldn’t tell if those were screams of grief or joy.
Probably a bit of both.
More specifically what lifelong lesson did they learn, watching hordes of policemen knife him to death.
Anyone remember Charles Barkley destroying Barney in the old SNL bit?
“with a baseball bat and some two by four, no more purple dinosaur!”
That reminds my of July 12th 1979.
That’s how you kill off something.
You totally beat me to it; that was the first thing I thought of.
I remember the Usenet newsgroup alt.dinosaur.barney.die.die.die.
Some cagy veterans may recall that in the late 90’s there was a web ring dedicated to hating Barney. My favorite site was Into the Purple Abyss. I just checked and the site archive can be found at neocities. Check out BarneyReich. Still makes me laugh 25 years later.
