Chicken rules!

By | May 11, 2008

Some background information on how this video became embroiled in litigation.

The Lyons Partnership v. Ted Giannoula (179 F.3d 384) summary document states on paragraph 9: “Perhaps the most insightful criticism regarding Barney is that his shows do not assist children in learning to deal with negative feelings and emotions. As one commentator puts it, the real danger from Barney is “denial: the refusal to recognize the existence of unpleasant realities. For along with his steady diet of giggles and unconditional love, Barney offers our children a one-dimensional world where everyone must be happy and everything must be resolved right away.”

Moral of the story? Don’t let your kids watch too much Barney.
