LOL Kimba, Barney is a bit that way too. Any attention is good attention.
My daughter is a very big simpsons fan. When she was little, I caught her "strangling" Barney like Homer does to Bart and she was saying to him "Why you little...".
It sounds terrible, but she wasn't strong enough to hurt Barney's massive neck and he thought it was great fun judging by the big grin on his face. Needless to say though she did get a telling off and she didn't do it again but I remember alking in the room and seeing it and as a memory it is a bit funny.
Like the picture earlier, I also have pictures of Chevy in bunny ears and Barney in sexy mesh shirts LOL (although sometimes that was us, not the kid LMAO)
