Family Night is coming up the following week and the kids are having fun with families in different ways. All except for Kathy, who feels her family is too small. Barney comes to see the others' projects for the special night, while she is in sorrow. Bringing it up to Barney later, he tells her that her family is a wonderful size.

  • This episode marked:
  • The quote "He's tangled up in the jump-rope again." references "Three Wishes".
  • On the PBS Pledge Drive version of this episode, the songs, "The Family in the Dell" and "Where is Family?" were edited out to make the episode shorter. Also the ending to the "Barney Theme Song" is different than the original version. The Barney Says segment is also much different.
