“Barney and his friends” it seems, wasn’t always a happy family behind the scenes.
According to a new docuseries, “I Love You, You Hate Me,” the beloved children’s show that launched the careers of actresses from Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez was the target of much hatred.
The trailer for the two-part series shows Bob West a Barney artist, recalling the death threats he received as the purple dinosaur.
“They were violent and explicit, they were death threats and the dismemberment of my family”, he says. “They would come and find me, and they would kill me.”
The series was created in 1992 by Sheryl Leach, Kathy Parker and Dennis DeShazer.
“Barney means inclusion, acceptance. You must love everyone, we all have Sheryl Leach to thank for that,” reads a line in the trailer, which asks “Why does the world love to hate?”
“I Love You, You Hate Me” is scheduled to premiere on October 12 on the Peacock streaming service, only available in the United States and some European countries.
