"The Alphabet Zoo" is the sixteenth episode from Season 2 of Barney & Friends.


Barney and the kids decide to turn their classroom into a pretend zoo. They add animals with names starting with all the different letters of the alphabet. They make masks and pretend to be different animals as they play several animal games. The highlight is when Julie's Aunt Molly stops by for a visit and tells a wonderful story about a boy and a hopping rabbit. Also, Jason tells Barney "I Love You" in sign language.

Educational Theme: The Alphabet and Zoo Animals.
