Sweet as Honey
Barney receives a letter from his friend Old King Cole that says that he is coming to visit their tree house. Barney suggests that they make him feel right at home. So, Barney and the kids set out to turn the treehouse into a castle. When Old King Cole arrives, he is so impressed by everyone's preparations that he bursts into one of the greatest dance numbers ever performed by one of Barney's guests.
