  • On January 19, 1994, this episode was released on home video as Let's Pretend with Barney. However, on the front cover, it says "Introducing BJ". Although his actual debut was in "Look at Me, I'm 3!", this was his first home video appearance. The back of the cover also implies of this as David's first appearance as well, although he first appeared in "My Favorite Things".
  • During the closing shot with the Barney doll, an airplane sound effect was heard. For some reason, this is not heard in some versions of the episode.
  • On the PBS Pledge Drive version for this episode, "The Airplane Song" and some scenes were cut to make this episode shorter. To acknowledge these changes, Bob West redubbed the Barney Says segment to not include "The Airplane Song" scene.
  • This is the only time David appeared without Kathy.

International Edits
