Let's Help Mother Goose!
The kids are cleaning up the playground and Michael and Tina turn it into a bit of a game. Barney comes to life and joins them. Luci meets up with the others, with a sore eye, and Derek explains to Barney that it's Earth Week at school and Tina explains more about it. This leads to Barney and the kids to explore ways to protect the earth including making musical instruments out of recyclable items, making three-cornered hats out of newspaper, and performing skits about preserving resources and reusing things. They even act out the story of Johnny Appleseed.
Educational Theme: Ecology

- In the Korean production Baniwa Chingudeul, "My Aunt Came Back" was not sung, rather cutting to a cast member making three-cornered hats out of newspapers, probably due to time constraints.
- Part of the scene for Brushing My Teeth has been spread as a viral video, as people believe Michael's "in back" brushing looked like something rather offensive.
- Min is mentioned in this episode.
- This group (Tina, Derek, Michael, and Luci) also appeared in 1-2-3-4-5 Senses! and My Family's Just Right for Me, both in which Kathy appear as well. They also appeared in I Just Love Bugs. In 1-2-3-4-5 Senses!, Derek makes a cameo appearance in the beginning of the episode. But none of them appeared in the next episode-Let's Help Mother Goose (except for Michael).
- Despite learning about recycling in Rock with Barney, Tina asks what recycling means.
- In this episode, all four members of the Backyard Gang who made it to the TV show appear together.
- Paintings of rainbows are shown in the song, "Simple and Beautiful a Rainbow", especially some taken from The Treasure of Rainbow Beard.
- Tina wears the same shirt in Eat, Drink and Be Healthy! and Going Places!
