How I Met Your Mother Or Barney & Friends Quiz: Who Said It - Barney Stinson Or Barney The Dinosaur?

This quiz is harder than you might think. These two Barneys are eerily similar!

How I Met Your Mother/Barney Quiz

In the hit TV sitcom How I Met Your Mother, we come to know know Barney Stinson as a whiskey-swigging, cigar-smoking, womanising piece of sleaze. However, once you scratch the surface of his otherwise heartless demeanor, there is a man with a heart of gold who will do anything for his closest friends.

Coincidentally, there is another Barney in the TV world who also has a good heart and nothing but compassion and empathy for his friends but, unlike Stinson, he is a 7 foot tall purple dinosaur. Upon first glance, you couldn't find a pair of TV characters more different but are they more similar than you think?

Although we all know Stinson for his catchphrases about suits, girls and living life like it's one big party, there have also been times on the show where he has said some truly deep, heartfelt and compassionate things. This quiz will take those quotes and some from everyone's favourite purple dinosaur and see if you can tell the difference.

If you think you're a Barney Stinson expert (or a Barney The Dinosaur expert for that matter), then look no further than this quiz.
