Three Wishes

The Backyard Show is the first video in the Barney & The Backyard Gang series as well as the beginning of the Barney franchise. It was originally released on August 29th, 1988.

Plot

Amy and Michael want to surprise their dad for his birthday. With the Backyard Gang in doubt, there's no way the show can be produced quickly (or, so they think). Fortunately, Barney the Dinosaur comes to life, and encourages the kids to use their imaginations to help make the show a reality. Along the way, they sing songs and recite rhymes that are later sung in the birthday show. The show ends up to be a success with Dad doing the "Hokey Pokey".
