"Tea-riffic Manners" is the third episode from the seventh season of Barney & Friends.


Tea time is the perfect time to practice good manners. Gianna invites two special guests - Baby Bop and BJ! When they find the decorations they need in the caboose, the flowers make Baby Bop sneeze, and they all sing "Keep Your Sneeze To Yourself", so Baby Bop can learn the right way to sneeze. After the friends dress up like high society, it's time for the tea party. Baby Bop learns that the magic words "Please" and "Thank You" are the correct words to use when asking for more cookies. And singing "Clean Up! Do Our Share" makes cleaning up good manners and good, clean fun. Barney puts on a humorous presentation about bad manners with a story about some messy kids named "The Floodledoops". The silliness continues as they sing "Silly Sounds" Reminding his friends about good manners while having fun is definitely proper etiquette for their purple pal.
