I Love You, You Hate Me, a new documentary series from Peacock, explores Barney’s past when the show was on-screen, emphasising the value of love and kindness for children.
The two-part documentary will cover “the rise and collapse of Barney the Dinosaur’s angry backlash—and what it says about the human impulse to hate,” according to the streamer’s description.
