Who Plays Barney the Purple Dinosaur

Report as

Depends on which barney you are referring to. Obviously you are referring to the American version but there are actually many more. David Joyner, who played Barney for ten years from 1992 to 2001 (prior to Stinson, West and Wednt) continued doing live performances of Barney for 4 years and then went on to train other Barneys in England, Canada, Australia, Israel, Singapore, Germany and Mexico just to name a few. It's also sad that I know all this. Excuse me while I go shoot myself now.

Believe it or not, there were actually two people in the character of Barney the purple dinosaur. Carey Stinson wore the purple costume, but didn't do any of the speaking. The voice of Barney was done by Dean Wendt. Can you believe that Barney has been on the air for 17 years!

According to one popular website, the man inside the Barney suit is named Carey Stinson and the voice is provided by Bob West and Dean Wendt! You can find more information here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barney_&_Friends
