  • Since 1992 Barney, Baby Bop, and B.J. have brought smiles to our faces with their non-stop adventures, stories, games, friends and, of course, the Barney Bag. Normally focusing on younger audiences, Barney teaches respect, courtesy, manners and many other essentials in life. Most children in the age group normally consisting of 2-8 watch Barney. Many of us have grown out of Barney but there are generations still to come who will enjoy Barney. The series won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Live and Direct to Tape Sound Mixing.Characters:Barney: His role on the show is to show everyone a good time. He has great friends whom sometimes visit the kids and tell stories or take them on adventures. He even has a bag of goodies known as the Barney Bag.B.J.: He visits on occasion to play with Barney and his friends. B.J.'s role on the show is simply to help out or play games although he normally visits because he's looking for something he has lost.Baby Bop: Baby Bop, who carries her blankie wherever she goes, is kind-hearted and very polite. She normally tags along with her big brother B.J. She does, on occasion, lose her blankie but with Barney's help, she always finds it. ((Trivia buffs: Baby Bop's favorite number is three.)Barney & Friends Theme Song (to the tune of "Yankee Doodle"):Barney is a dinosaur From our imagination And when he's tall, he's what we call A dinosaur sensation Barney's friends are big and small They come from lots of places After school, they come to play And sing with happy faces Barney shows us lots of things Like how to play pretend ABCs and 1-2-3s And how to be a friend Barney comes to play with us Whenever we may need him Barney can be your friend, too If you just make-believe him.The Ending Song:I love you You love me We're a happy family With a great big hug and a kiss from me to you Wont you say you love me too. I love you you love me We're best friends like friends should be With a great big hug and a kiss from me to you Wont you say you love me too.moreless

    • Luci: That was great!
      Min: Nobody leads like Michael.
      Tina : I'll say! But we seem to have lost someone.
      Tina, Min, Michael and Luci: BARNEY!!!!
      Min: Oh, no! LOOK! (she runs to the classroom window where she sees Barney stuck in the swings) He's stuck!
      Tina : Quick! Let's rescue him! (with not a minute to lose, the kids dash right outside to save their big purple friend)
      Barney: (struggling) Help! Help! I'm stuck!
      Tina, Min, Michael and Luci: (grabbing a hold of Barney) One...Two.....THREE!!!! (faster than you can say peanut butter, they successfully yank Barney out the swings)
      Barney: Phew!! Thanks, kids. (giggles) I'm not fat, I just have big bones!

    • Barney: Simon Says, touch your neck. (Tina and Michael touch their necks) Barney: Simon Says, touch your tail. (Tina and Michael try, but their behinds have no tail!) Michael: Hey! No fair, Barney! Tina: Yeah! We don't have a tail like you do! Barney: You're right. That wasn't fair.

    • Michael: Besides, it was just a toy spider. Derek: Yeah, who's scared of some ol' toy bug? (Tina holds up a toy fly.) Michael and Derek: AAAAAAH! Tina: Yeah, who's afraid of some ol' toy bug?

    • Patty: This sure is a beautiful day to make new friends. Tina: Uh Patty, if you can't see, how do you know it's a beautiful day? Patty: I just use some of my other senses besides seeing. I can feel the warm sun on my face and the cool breeze when it hits me. And I can smell the spring flowers and I can hear the leaves rustling on the trees and birds singing just like you do. Tina: Well, I've never thought of that.

    • Luci: Hey everyone, I want you to meet a new friend of mine. She started school with me last week. This is Patty. Patty, these are my friends. On your right, here's Michael. Michael: Hi, Patty. Luci: And on your left is Kathy. Kathy: Nice to meet you. Luci: And standing beside on my right is my sister Tina. Tina: Hello, Patty. Patty: Hi everybody. Luci's told me a lot of you already. Kathy: Why are you carrying that cane, Patty? Patty: I'm blind and sometimes I use it to help me find my away around. Kathy: What does that mean you're blind? Patty: My eyes can't see things like yours do. Kathy: What can you see? Patty: I can tell when there's a light out and when it's dark. But I can't see things like trees or clouds or any of you. Tina: I'm sorry, Patty. Patty: Oh, it's okay. You don't have to feel bad for me. I'm happy to make new friends.

    • (the kids are set for the sack race) Tina: Derek, I think I saw something in your bag. Derek: Yeah? Barney: Okay. Get on your mark... Tina: And it was big. Derek: Yeah? Barney: Get set...! Tina: I think it was a big bug! Derek: A BUG?!! YO!!! Barney: GO! (Derek rapidly hops past the stairs and toward the finish line at the gate) Barney: Derek is the winner!

    • Tina: I accidentally grabbed my dad's lunch bag instead of mine.
      Shawn: What's so bad about that?
      Tina: I had to eat a sardine sandwich and cottage cheese.
      Luci, Shawn, and Min: Eww!
      Tina: With no dessert!
      Luci, Shawn, and Min: EWW!!

    • Derek's Grandfather: (after the song "I Love You") Derek, I want to thank you and your friends for this fun day at school. Nana: And I had a wonderful time too. Derek's Grandfather: And Barney... Where did he go? Derek: Granddad, he's right there.

    Trivia (7)

    • Barney and the kids stay in the schoolhouse for the rest of the episode when the thunderstorm begins.

    • Vinyl records shouldn't shatter easily when simply dropped onto the floor (when Tina accidentally drops three 45-RPM records and they break.) This usually only applies to the much older 78-RPM records, made of a more fragile shellac material instead of vinyl.

    • The song the animal orchestra played during the puppet show was "If You're Happy and You Know It".

    • At the beginning the program, the school crossing picture sign is backwards. Usually the school children are walking right to left, and not left to right as seen on the Barney set.

    • When the Vend-O-Ball machine dispensed so many balls after Baby Bop pressed the bottom button, why couldn't they have a ball pit?
