Thread Name: Lyr Add: Barney Song - I Love You (bawdy parodies)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Barney Song - I Love You (bawdy parodies)
All my grand kids and kids of a particular generation(born after 1987) just couldn't get enough of Mr. B when they were toddlers. Whatever they are sending out,those kids were in LUV with Barney. Later,they completely rejected Barney and the idea that they loved that show was a source of great shame and distress. My daughter (now twenty-five) said " It's all about toilet training and other early childhood stuff. Barney helps you through that time. No kid in first or second grade wants to be be reminded of what a short time has passed from toddler to to first grade."
All my 5 kids are adopted. When asked in first grade how Barney, a transgendered T-rex ,could have a sister who is a completely different species, my daughter announced to her classmates " There all adopted!"
Barney, and everything connected with Mr. B. is a regular topic of conversation at my house. I grew up with a ventriloquist on the radio, so what do I know?
