So there’s something I have to tell you that might mess you up for a day or two. I know that when I found out I was shocked a bit, I also felt a little weird. Mourned the innocence in the world. Then I got over it like the adult I am. Because that’s what we do when we find out weird news about our favorite dinosaur — Barney.
It can be hard to realize that people on TV are real life people. Seeing anyone famous or partly famous in real life is as weird as it was to see your teacher outside of the school when you were a kid. Children stars we see on television grow up. They become real people beyond who they played on the screen. It’s hard and weird to see the character apart from the actor. Sometimes that’s easier said than done. And it’s especially true for stars we loved as children.
Like you know — Barney the Dinosaur. He was a staple in our childhood. We watched him and loved him, which was weird because it was a dinosaur. He sung and danced and gave us life lessons and made us feel all sorts of loved.
