Talk Is Jericho: I Love You, You Hate Me – The Rise & Fall Of Barney

Today’s Talk Is Jericho is with Tommy Avallone, who is talking about his new documentary “I Love You, You Hate Me,” which is streaming now on Peacock, and looks at the cultural hate and backlash surrounding Barney, the famous purple dinosaur. Tommy chronicles the creation of Barney, his rise and fall in popularity, and the hatred that sprang up around him. He explains how Barney’s cultural phenomenon status impacted Bob West, who voiced Barney, and actor David Joyner who physically played the purple dinosaur in the giant costume. Finally, Tommy talks about the “Barney Curse” plaguing creator Sheryl Leach’s family and shares some dark urban legends surrounding Barney involving drug cartels and serial killers.
