In 2002 while guest-starring on the TV series, "That's So Raven", word got around the set that he was Barney. Later that day he was approached by a young lady asking him to meet with a producer named Claude Brooks, who was developing a new children's character named Hip Hop Harry, a rapping teddy bear. Thinking he was only meeting him to give him some great advice as to how to get Hip Hip Harry going, he was then offered the role as Hip Hop Harry to shot 2 pilots for a direct to DVD series.

The two pilots were shot in August 2002, and thus the beginning of a new chapter in David Joyner's world of children's entertainment. Harry is a bear and the world's best youth counselor.

Outside of being a youth counselor at Hip Hop Central he works as a rapper/singer/dancer for kids and families around the world. Hip Hop Harry lives and breathes Hip Hop in an old school sort of way but he's hip to the current trends. He loves to rap and dance along with the kids and he believes that a beat and a rhyme can solve any problem. Hip Hop Harry is 100% positive in all he does.
