Stephen White

Stephen White was the head writer of the Barney franchise from 1992-2005. He was replaced as head writer by Carter Crocker, but continued to write for the series from 2006 - 2007. He not only wrote many of the Barney & Friends episodes and home videos, but also Barney's Great Adventure, many books, live appearances and even some original songs for the franchise.


Barney & Friends

Stephen White, first heard about the purple dinosaur through the voice himself, Bob West, who at the time was doing the voice of Chuck E. Cheese as well. Since White was a freelance children's writer at the time, he decided to send in a resume saying that he would like to work with the folks at Barney. After seeing that Barney & Friends was a soon to be PBS series and he didn't hear back from them, he decided to send in another letter of congratulations (for a reminder). The creator of Barney, Sheryl Leach, got back with White quickly. White showed her some of the stuff that he had worked on before with Chuck E. Cheese and he and Mark S. Bernthal were hired.[1]

Other Projects

Like many other of the Barney team, White was credited on "BOZ the Bear" a christian direct to video series. White has also created a couple of very fun children's book apps, AlphaBELCH and Thumbpire, and plans to do more soon. [1]

Personal Life

White was born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana and later moved to Bloomington, Indiana to attend Indiana University.[1]
