Creepy: Barney's Hide and Seek Game

What are you doing in that Dreamcast Barney?  You don't even fit you're a Genesis cartridge
Today I bring you a video game called Barney's Hide and Seek Game.

...Do I really need to say anything?
In this foul endeavor, you play as Barney the purple Dinosaur and ready to find some  kids who have not-so cleverly hidden themselves around many colorful, obnoxious levels.  That wouldn't be so bad, if it were not for the event that happens every time you find said children:  Barney picks them up, and gives them a big, long "hug".  Now, if the image of a middle-aged man walking around in a Dinosaur suit, picking up small children and telling them he loves them didn't set off your Megan's Law alarm bells enough, perhaps this poorly photoshopped image will.


Now I realize this is meant to be a children's game, and the barney TV show was very popular in 1993(Thanks Generation X parents!) but imagine if you were a kid on Christmas, you begged your Mom for a copy of Sonic The Hedgehog, and instead she shoved this down your throat because she didn't like the look of that mischievous blue critter.  In fact, I can't think of another situation for a parent actually wanting to buy this game for their kid.
