Mother Goose is an imaginary author of fairy tales and nursery rhymes. She is also friends with Barney and visits him and his friends every once and a while. Oftentimes, she already knows his friends, as she knows the name of everyone who has ever read her rhymes. She was originally portrayed by Sandy Walper in the Barney franchise in the episodes Let's Help Mother Goose!, and Honk! Honk! A Goose on the Loose!.
