    It was part of something that was done for PBS. It was a flix of a bunch of children's characters together, and Big Bird did not push Barney off stage. They were actually together on stage for the first and last time. In the background, they played the song "We Are Family" by Sister Sledge. The point of it was so that all characters from all shows love each other. They are not enemies.

    Actually, Barney is living proof that birds are really justevolved dinosours that are much further evolved.

    Now that's funny!

    Still, while I'm all for evolution (it seems perfectly clear that humans evolved from monkeys and some of us are still living off scum at the bottom of the swamp) I'm not ready to admit Big Bird is related to Barney, even if it a connection seperated by a few hundred million years.

    Hehe, I'm with Ms. Quilter. Bird is WAY too cool to be related to Barney. Even if Big Bird is an evolved form of a dinosaur, Barney would NOT be the base of that evolution chain. :)

    My response: (Jon Lovitz voice) ACTING! (Regular voice) In my mind, I envision Big Bird challenging Barney to a fight and stomping that Purple Pain back to the Stone Age (pun intended).
