Here's some information about "Barney & His Friends" for those who may not be familiar with this television show/character:

"Barney is a big purple Tyrannosaurus Rex with human-like qualities and abilities whom preschoolers love and some parents tend to merely tolerate. Barney promotes learning through his completely optimistic attitude and loving nature, cavorting about singing children's songs on a U. S. children's show, Barney & Friends. Children find Barney lovable, friendly and accepting. He made his television debut on PBS in 1992 in the children's television show titled "Barney & Friends". The character is tremendously popular among preschool children, entertaining with song and lessons in kindness. Originally airing in 1987, the Barney and Friends television show was aimed directly at the pre-school audience...

Barney's best-known song is the much-spoofed sing along "I Love You, You Love Me," which epitomizes the show's simple, gentle approach."

Here's a link to a YouTube video of Barney singing "I Love You":


Here's an excerpt of the spoken introduction that Barney gave before sining that "I Love You" song:

"Big or little, you're all wonderful just the way you are."
