Barney's Big Surprise
Barney's First Adventures
Barney's Halloween Party is a Barney Special that was released on August 18, 1998. It was later released on DVD August 19, 2003, and later re-released on DVD on September 1, 2009. It also appeared on the "Children's Favorites: Halloween Treats" DVD.
It’s Halloween and Barney and the kids are decorating the gym for an exciting party at the school. From Indian corn to smiling jack-o-lanterns, the gym is aglow with the colors of fall. Meanwhile, BJ and Baby Bop are putting the final touches on their costumes as they get ready for a fun-filled night of trick-or-treating. Finally, evening arrives, the party begins, and the trick-or-treaters set out to search for goodies. Unfortunately, after a full night of trying, BJ comes up just a bit empty-handed. But when he and Baby Bop return to school, they soon find out that their friends have plenty of goodies and surprises waiting for them. Sometimes, the best treats at Halloween are good friends.
