We thought the 'Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey' slasher movie was enough to ruin our childhoods this year, but Barney has come to the party!
Barney was meant to be people's ‘favourite purple dinosaur’ who shared his adventures, songs and dances to help kids share, care, and learn.
...Apparently some adults didn't quite get that message.
The Peacock docuseries, ‘I Love You, You Hate Me’, is set to put the spotlight on just how dark the kid's show was behind the scenes.
Check out the trailer below:
The trailer centres around Sheryl Leach, who created the programme in 1992 with Kathy Parker and Dennis DeShazer after initially making Barney-themed home films for her kids.
“Barney stands for inclusion, acceptance. You should love everyone, we all have Sheryl Leach to thank for that.”
The docuseries also features the man in the suit, Bob West, who recounts the death threats that were made not only against him, but his entire family as a result of being on the show.
“They were violent and explicit, death and dismemberment of my family,” he says in the trailer. “They were gonna come and find me, and they were going to kill me.”
NBC's Al Roker and Bill Nye the Science Guy also make appearances in the show, sharing just how quick the world turned on the lovable purple dino.
The series produced by Scout Productions will debut on October 12, however, the Peacock streaming service is currently not available in New Zealand.
