A Royal Welcome is the twelfth episode from Season 5 of Barney & Friends.


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.

  • This is one of the times where something happens to the Barney doll before coming to life. It was when Scooter threw him out of his hole.
  • This is the 100th episode of Barney & Friends.
  • This is the Second time Scooter McNutty and Miss Etta Kette appear before Barney comes to life. The first was Pennies, Nickels, Dimes.
