  • This is the only known documentary ever created for "Barney & Friends".
  • I Love You was sung in the end of this special using clips of various children singing the lyrics of the first set of verses (for the second set, the Barney's Favorites recording was used, while showing video clips of Barney and the children watching him). This was the first time I Love You was sung in a while, as the song was part of a lawsuit earlier that year.
