"Oh, What A Day!" is the twenty-seventh episode from Season 1 of Barney & Friends.


Tina had a rough start to her day. First, she had soap in her eyes, spilling a bowl of cereal all over her favorite dress, wearing two different colored socks as she was in a hurry to change, accidentally grabbing her dad's lunch bag (containing sardine sandwich and cottage cheese without any desserts) instead of hers, and it seems to be getting worse and worse, with the latest incident involving a rushing peer accidentally knocking books out of her hands. But worst of all, she let her kitten Whiskers out of the house and fears she lost him. Barney and his friends try to cheer her up through songs and activities, but no matter what they do, Tina keeps having terrible luck (eg. breaking a hand-made drum, stubbing her toe while dancing, and causing the top part of the ice cream to fall on the floor). Min tells her that she should just try to make herself smile to make her troubles go away. But then Barney finds Whiskers and Tina's day suddenly becomes much brighter.
