History of the 90s

01-06-2022 • 33 mins

Sheryl Leach, a working mom in Texas was stuck in traffic when she dreamt up the idea of a plush-toy dinosaur that comes to life and entertains a backyard full of kids with songs and games.  Within a few years the big purple dinosaur was loved by millions of children around the world and hated by their parents who were forced to watch the T-rex on his hit PBS show.     On this episode of History of the 90s host Kathy Kenzora looks back at the story of how Barney changed kids tv programming and why he was so hated by adults.   If you’d like exclusive History of the 90s content become a subscriber at:    www.patreon.com/historyofthe90s  Guest:  Rob Curran, founder of the I Hate Barney Secret Society   Show Contacts:   Twitter: @1990shistory  Facebook: @1990shistory  Instagram: @that90spodcast  Email: 90s@curiouscast.ca   For exclusive bonus content subscribe to History of the 90s Patreon page.: https://patreon.com/historyofthe90s Learn more about your ad choices.
