Hans Christian Andersen (b. April 2, 1805) is a member of the Barney Bunch. He writes stories for younger Barney Bunch members. Originally, he came from Denmark, then the king kicked him out, so now he lives in Drewland and writes stories for young Drewland children. He resurrected sometime in 1988 out of a sudden, no one knows except Barney and Ronald McDonald. It was rumored that he actually resurrected in 1997, but this was only from Ripper Roo's perspective because he came to Drewland in 1997.
