BJ is a 7-year-old yellow male Protoceratops who has been on the show since Season 2 (1993). He is the
older brother of Baby Bop, whom he frequently calls "Sissy", though on rare occasions, he does call her by name. His theme song is none other than "BJ's Song". He wears a red baseball cap on his head and red sneakers on his feet.

He has lost his favorite hat in the Season 3 episode "Hats Off to B.J.!". Sometimes, he says stuff to hide fears. For example, in "Barney's Halloween Party", he was shocked by the paper spiders. After learning they were fake, he replied "I knew that, sort of."

Pickles are his favorite food and because of that, he actually has had them in different ways like pickles (also with pepperoni, peppers, pineapple and peanut butter) on a pizza (as seen in "Barney's Adventure Bus") or in mac-and-cheese (as mentioned in "E-I-E-I-O"). He also has a superhero persona, known as Captain Pickles.

BJ also likes to run, jump, and ride around on his red scooter. Although he loves baseball, basketball and soccer, it's safe to say that BJ has never met a sport he didn't like. He still enjoys playing with his friends and helping his sister Baby Bop.

Apperances and Trivia

  • BJ's first appearance was in the Season 2 episode "Look at Me, I'm 3!".
  • In his early appearances on the show, B.J. was slightly taller than Barney and had a much deeper voice. He was redesigned in Season 3; his height was shrunken to better suit his age of seven years old.
  • The writers added B.J. because they wanted a sibling relationship to work with (Barney and Baby Bop are just friends).[1]
  • B.J. was named after Sheryl Leach's father, B.J. Stamps.[2]
  • To avoid questions about what B.J. stands for, the name was reduced to simply BJ starting in Barney's Fun & Games.
  • Originally, BJ had a trademark whistle that would let the audience know of his arrival. Although it was not heard in Barney Safety or Barney's Fun & Games, it was officially discontinued in Barney's Musical Scrapbook.
  • He has suffered from stomach-aches at least twice in the series, the first time being in Circle of Friends and the second time being in BJ's Snack Attack.
