Barney the Dinosaur is the star of Peacock’s new true crime doc — yes, really

Barney the Dinosaur entertained and educated children worldwide for almost 20 years, but there was also a darker side to the beloved Barney & Friends show that aired on PBS between 1992 and 2010. And a new Peacock true crime doc aims to chronicle this less-than-friendly story. 

The two-part documentary is called I Love You, You Hate Me — a cheeky nod towards the dino’s iconic nursery rhyme — and it’s scheduled to hit Peacock on Wednesday, October 12. The subject matter might lead you to assume this is a spoof doc in the same vein as Netflix’s excellent American Vandal, but this docuseries definitely wasn’t made for laughs.
