The following works of creative fiction are in no way meant to represent nor misrepresent the Lyons Partnership, L.P., or their property Barney® the Purple Dinosaur or any other intellectual properties of the aforementioned Partnership, implicitly or explicitly. The fictional, demonic entity referred to as "B'harnii", "B'harne" and other nomenclature, only loosely based on the Barney® property, is not meant to represent nor tarnish the reputation of the Barney® property. Any potential use of the Barney® name falls within "fair use" as provided by 17 USC 1 § 107.

Warning: This section may contain descriptions of violence. Reader discretion is advised. As always, the Jihad does not condone Real Life violence against the Barney® characters, or any other living being.


Many of the early stories in alt.barney.dinosaur.die.die.die were not written about the Jihad. Some of these are the best-known classics of the "Barney Hater" genre of literature. As a public service, we present a few of these unaltered for your viewing enjoyment. The Archivist would like to thank the Tracy J, the Finder of Lost Posts, for all the help in tracking down and grabbing stuff from the halcyon days of 1994.

(UPDATE 03/2005) The Archivist would also like to thank Dopefish Justin for his dillgent work in tracking down a complete copy of Son Of Barney.




Brian Bull, aka Necktie Junction, was one of the most prolific and one of the best Barney-related fiction writers out there. In 2000, Brian departed the 'net to lead a full life out there in the real world.
