Hebrew version

International Edits

  • In the Hebrew version, The Family In The Dell is not sung, and instead it skips to Barney and the kids going inside the classroom.

Trivia

  • This marks:
  • The quote "He's tangled up in the jump-rope again." references "Three Wishes".
  • Several elements from this episode were later reused for the Season 5 episode "The One and Only You".
  • This group (Tina, Luci, Kathy, Michael, and Derek) also appeared in "1-2-3-4-5 Senses!".
  • In the Hebrew version, where the cast member was singing "Hush Little Teddy" to her teddy bear, you can see Barney dancing in the background.
  • Tina's hairstyle from "Barney Goes to School" returns in this episode. It is later shown in "Our Earth, Our Home".
  • 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.
  • Luci wears the same shirt in Happy Birthday, Barney! and I Just Love Bugs.
  • The horn from The Backyard Show returns in this episode.
