Can't people just like Barney and his friends without being persecuted? :~(



:-b :-b :-b
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Whatev raiders; tell me, how'd you get stuck with green one?

Although many of the reviews of Barney & Friends have been positive, the show has been the target of a certain degree of controversy. This criticism generally stems from some disagreement in the messages that the show sends children through the situations that it portrays.

For instance, one particular episode made use of the phrase "A stranger is a friend you have not met yet," which some parents may view as sending a dangerous message to their children. Another episode was criticized because a situation in the episode could be interpreted as teaching children that cheating is good. In the episode, the children are involved in a contest where they have to carry a spoon with a peanut on it without dropping it. One child wins by putting peanut butter on his spoon to make the peanut stick, and then he is rewarded for "creative thinking."

Critics have attacked the show for its peer pressure and "group think", saying it encourages children to suppress outward signs of unhappiness rather than deal openly with their feelings.

The show has also been criticized for its lack of educational value. The producers of the show admit this, but only claim that it's "escapist entertainment for young children."

In addition, the show has also been criticized for being excessively sappy and optimistic. Because of this, most viewers over the preschool age find the show tedious to view. The latter gave rise to a phenomenon called Anti-Barney Humor.

The show has also been criticized because many viewers believe Barney teaches children to use magic, instead of real problem solving, to resolve the conflicts that they may be confronted with in everyday life. As a result of this, Barney can be viewed as harmful to the process of social skills development.

Also, some viewers have noted that Barney might teach dangerous activites to children, such as:

Placing boxes and other things on their heads, despite infant mortality rates from this type of thing.
Cooking on a stove without adult supervision, despite child and adult mortality rates increasing from accidents involving fire.
Capturing stinging, posionous insects such as bees without any supervision, despite annual fatalities caused by bee stings.

And the Teletubies are actually discreet Nazi propaganda.
