An exploration of the spectacular rise and violent response to children’s show character Barney the Dinosaur. This thought-provoking documentary traces Barney’s grassroots beginnings, from the explosion of international Barneymania to the eventual backlash the purple dinosaur received. Using exclusive interviews and archival footage, the three-part documentary offers first-hand accounts of the Barney phenomenon from the cast and crew to its most outspoken critics. This deep dive into the nature of love and hate asks where the Barney reaction – which started as a snarky 1990s joke but transformed into actual violence – may have gotten society.
The logo combines two letter styles. One of them can’t be classified as a font as it is just handwriting, but the “I LOVE YOU” part in the logo uses Cooper Black, a typeface that has been used for decades and still can be seen on certain album covers, storefronts, etc. The secondary text is set in Peacock’s custom Peacock Sans.
