International Edits

  • In the Hebrew adaption, the second and last verse of Animals in Motion are removed.
  • Also in the Israeli version of this episode (which is called "Hands on the Head" in that production), after the kids get Barney unstuck, if you look carefully behind the tree, you can see Baby Bop.


  • This episode marks:
  • This group (Min, Tina, Michael, and Luci) also appeared in The Exercise Circus! (with Derek and Tosha).
  • It is revealed in this episode that Min doesn't like to take naps.
  • A different Barney doll is used at the beginning of this episode. It would be seen again in Going Places!.
  • The Barney doll ending to this episode is shot very similarly to the one used in "My Family's Just Right for Me", with the only main difference being that the latter episode mentioned has Kathy instead of Tina.
