Jose Carlos Moreno (February 24, 1968 - May 3, 2002) was a Mexican actor who was the first voice of Barney in Latin American countries. Moreno voiced the character from his initial debut on Latin American television in 1995 to 2000, when he encountered major difficulties in providing the voice of the purple dino. The role of the character was later passed over to Ruben Cerda. Shortly after his departure from the show, Moreno died after a car accident on route to Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico on May 3, 2002 at the age of 34.
His final work on the show was the home video Barney's Super Singing Circus.
