What can I say about Barney the purple dinosaur ? Lots of things and none of them good . Apparently Barney is a role model for young children and shows them how live , should behave and how to do the right thing . According to Barney creator Kathy Parker a young child woke her family after a fire broke out since an episode of BARNEY AND FRIENDS warned children about the danger of fire . I'm just sort of guessing that human beings have an instinctive fear of fire so the credit of a child waking her family should be down to her basic instinct - Not something she saw on a television show
As you imagine this feature length film starts with a sugary sweet sequence of young children and a baby being driven to their grandparents house and the story continues in the same vein . " Oh little children . Aren't they sweet . Isn't life wonderful etc " is the expected response from the parents watching this but any person child or adult with critical faculties will be telling asking themselves " Are we being manipulated here ? Are we supposed to enjoy it because it's so innocent ? " to which the answer is a resounding YES . We're being emotionally blackmailed and if you don't like this patronising crap then you must be an evil person , you're not allowed to criticise the pathetic and badly choreographed song and dance numbers or the fact that that for a film with the word adventure in the title there's nothing resembling adventure
I have to be honest and say that I feel very , very sorry for children whose parents make them watch this . My own childhood adventure revolved around Saturday nights when I watched DOCTOR WHO and I think I can speak for everyone in the western world when I say sadistic monsters made out of condoms by the BBC are far more interesting than a man dressed up as a purple dinosaur
