(The Channel Awesome logo and NC title sequence play)

NC: Hello, I'm the Nostalgia Critic. I remember it so you don't have to. There's two kinds of Barneys in the world. One is an obnoxious dinosaur nobody likes to listen to, and the other is purple. OOOOHHH!!!

(Screaming "OHHH!!!", NC jumps up from his seat and runs around in a circle around his father, Barney, pointing his fingers at him repeatedly, much to Barney's irritation, all while silly music plays in the background. NC then sits back down again)

NC: This is Barney's Great Adventure.

(The title for this movie is shown, followed by clips of this movie, along with the original Barney and Friends TV show)

NC (vo): Barney is one of the most fascinating children's icons who ever existed, not because he had much lasting value for kids or adults, but because of the raw, undiluted hatred everybody had for him. Unless you were somewhere between the ages of one and five, chances are, you despised this early '90s educational phenomenon. Everywhere you looked, you either saw Barney...

(Cut to a clip of an episode of Animaniacs, showing the Warner siblings cowering at the sight of a Barney-like character (Baloney), who laughs, only to suddenly have an anvil drop on him)

NC (vo): ...or someone making fun of Barney.

(Cut to a clip of another kids' show (I don't know about the name of the show, though) involving a purple dinosaur (this one very much an actor is a costume), with a girl riding on its back)

NC (vo): There was no one who saw him as just okay.

(Cut to a clip of a Barney-like dinosaur character on a TV show in an episode of The Simpsons)

NC (vo): You either liked him as a little kid...

(Cut to a clip of the "Jurassic Park" music video by Weird Al Yankovic, in which Barney is seen dancing, but a Tyrannosaurus Rex bites his head off, causing blood to spurt from his body while he flails his arms around)

NC (vo): ...or loathed him at every other age. It was kind of amazing.

(Footage of Barney's Great Adventure resumes being shown)

NC (vo): And I'm not gonna lie, I hated this lumpy prune with mouth-guard teeth, too.

NC: (looking up in thought) But it wasn't recently I started asking myself, "Why?"

NC (vo): I mean, it's for little kids. We don't find ourselves getting this upset at Sesame Street, Dora, Super Why or... (Images of all those children's shows NC described are shown. We are shown an image of Caillou, which NC doesn't mention by name, and instead mentions the next image being shown) Word Girl, but something Barney just ignited a fire within most viewers who have little kids that were forced to watch it.
