  • This episode was released in Barney's Colors & Shapes, a VHS two-pack that also came with a VHS copy of the season 2 episode "Red, Blue and Circles Too!"
  • Stephen White plays Rainbow Beard the Pirate in this episode.
  • The bottom of the magic bottle can be seen before Barney pulls it out of the book.
  • When Barney pulls the magic bottle out of the book, it is quite apparent that the book is filled with blank pages.
  • The bottle containing the map was actually a leather-wrapped chianti bottle that Stephen White purchased from a garage sale.
  • This is also the only episode to feature Barney on the tire swing with a rainbow appearing above him on it, (like in the ending of the theme song). Also notice the Barney dolls aren't in the exact same poses as they differ from the scene in the theme song and the ending of this episode & the scene is in a different angle.
