However, life on a TV set wasn’t exactly as glamorous as Joyner perhaps once expected. In the same interview he revealed he often had to endure sweltering temperatures of 120 degrees while wearing the 70-pound Barney suit. “It’s a T-rex, so you’re basically up to your elbows in being able to move, and then also, Barney’s feet were huge.”

And Joyner had to endure plenty more problems with the costume. He also revealed that Barney’s head didn’t swivel or separate from the rest of the body and that his vision was always restricted. In fact, when the dinosaur closed his mouth Joyner couldn’t see a thing.
