Classic Barney

Season 1

QUEEN OF MAKE-BELIEVE-Barney and the group find that using your imagination can make any day, even a rainy one, more fun and exciting. With Barney's songs and games, the kids "make believe" they are all sorts of things like a queen, a robot, a goose, and more. The group learns that imagination is our most valuable tool by allowing us to change our world whenever we want.

Starring: Barney, Shawn, Michael, Min, and Tina

MY FAMILY'S JUST RIGHT FOR ME-Barney and his young friends practice all of the songs and games they're going to do at the school's "Family Night" show, but Kathy is not very excited about the event. Kathy thinks her family is too small with only a mother and a grandmother. Barney and the rest of the kids show Kathy that a family with love is always big enough.

Starring: Barney, Baby Bop, Derek, Michael, Luci, Kathy and Tina

PLAYING IT SAFE-With Barney's special bag and some imagination, the group creates some make believe cars and learns about safety. The kids become members of Barney's Safety Patrol and sing songs about keeping your seat belts buckled, paying attention to traffic lights, and crossing the street safely. The children also learn such safety tips as picking up toys after finishing with them and not talking to strangers.

Starring: Barney, Baby Bop, Derek, Luci, Kathy, and Min

HOP TO IT-When Tina and Luci are playing basketball, Tina is disappointed when she can't play as well as her older sister or the other big kids.

With new found energy and confidence, Tina ends up playing basketball as well as the others.

EAT,DRINK AND BE HEALTHY-With his delightful songs and games, Barney teaches the children all about nutrition. They learn the importance of the four food groups and how to eat healthy snacks.

Starring: Barney, Baby Bop, Shawn, Michael, Luci, and Tina

FOUR SEASONS DAY-The weather is awfully strange when Bareny declares it "Four Seasons Day," a magical holiday that squeezes all the wondrous seasons in one day. Barney and the kids use their songs and imagination to sing in the spring rain; squirt themselves with sunscreen lotion on a hot summer day; rake leaves in the crisp autumn chill; and even learn to ice skate in the dead of winter.

Starring: Barney, Shawn, Michael, Luci, and Min

THE TREASURE OF RAINBOW BEARD-After the kids and Barney enjoy reading a scary pirate book, the book's character, Rainbow Beard, appears and gives them a treasure map of their own to solve.

GOING PLACES-After Luci and Tina leave for a plane trip to their grandmother's house, the other kids wish they could travel too. Barney drops by and takes them for a trip on "Barney Airlines, Destination: Imagination City!"

Starring: Barney, Derek, Michael, Kathy, and Tina

CARING MEANS SHARING-Barney is a very large dinosaur--but there may not be enough of him to go around when Min and Kathy quarrel over whose turn it is to play with their big purple pal. Coming from a big family, Min is tired of sharing--but joins her friends in an exploration of ways to share fun and work.

And Barney has a magic gift for Min to help change her mind about sharing!

Starring: Barney, Baby Bop, Shawn, Derek, Kathy, and Min

DOWN ON BARNEY'S FARM-The kid's learn and draw pictures of farm animals, but Shawn is unhappy with his drawing when no one knows what it is.

WHAT'S THAT SHADOW?-A sudden thunderstorm chases the kids into the classroom, where they are frightened by the rain, thunder and lightning.

OUR EARTH, OUR HOME-The school's "Earth Week" has the kids all abuzz about things they can do to protect the earth.

BE A FRIEND-Barney finds Tosha, a new girl at school, lonely and without friends. He introduces her to Michael, Derek, and Kathy.

1-2-3-4-5 SENSES-Luci introduces her new friend, Patty (who is visually impaired), to Barney, Michael, Tina and Kathy.

Michael's class is studying the five senses, which leads to fun songs and activities related to each of them. Perhaps most important, Patty shows the group that a child with blindness can do many things for him/herself and play right along with the others. Patty teaches the kids a rhyme and its corresponding hand movements...and she reads a story to Kathy, using braille.

Starring: Barney, Baby Bop, Shawn, Derek, Luci, and Tina

A CAMPING WE WILL GO-Min, Kathy and Tosha are studying nature in their class and wish they could go camping in the woods. Barney takes the group to an imaginary forest and camp site (our playground dolled up a little). Once there, the kids encounter polliwogs, a bullfrog, a duckling, a baby rabbit, a thieving raccoon, a bear scare, and a chorus of sunflower seeds...all just a vehicle for a good old-fashioned campfire sing-along. Activities depicted include: nature appreciation, in general; seed identification; recognition of similarly shaped, colored, sized, and textured objects; kindness to animals; campfire stories; and lots of singing.

OH WHAT A DAY!-Tina's having a terrible day! Among other things, she thinks she's the cause of the family cat running away, and she's singing the blues.

The day has a happy ending when Tina lets the cat out of the bag!

Starring: Barney, Baby Bop, Shawn, Luci, Min, and Tina

HOME SWEET HOMES-When Kathy and Tosha invite Barney to share their classroom studies about "homes" for people and animals, Barney helps bring the subject to magical life.

EVERYONE IS SPECIAL-Every day is special when it's spent with Barney, but today, Barney's friends learn that they are special too! Min's whimsical attempt to "grow big and be special" is interrupted by the "special delivery" of a mysterious package for Barney! He saves his secret for later...but makes the time pass quickly by helping the kids explore all of the ways that they are special already. The kids try out the mechanical existence of robots, and discover that it's more fun to have differences. And since different people enjoy different things, Barney & Friends take time to dance, paint, and make music. Baby Bop learns the fun of trying something new. Luci and Tina share the special bond that sisters have. And when Barney's "special delivery" package is opened, each of the kids sees something different...and very special!
