- Although the song "And the Green Grass Grows All Around" wasn't sung in international dubs and co-productions, it is heard as an underscore when Barney & the kids go to the tree to find the treasure. "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" was sung, but cut short. But they are still inact on the VHS release. "Old Brass Wagon" wasn't sung in the Israeli production, however the instrumental was used as background music.
- Also in the Hachaverim Shel Barney version, Barney wasn't seen or heard coming to life.
- When this episode was released on video as part of the double pack "Barney's Colors & Shapes", it ended with the shorter credits used in re-runs.
- Stephen White plays Rainbow Beard the Pirate in this episode.
- This is the first and only episode to have the rainbow form the swing in both the closing and the opening with the Barney doll to date.
- 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.
- When Barney has the map upside down, he reads the clue backwards: "tra ekam uoy erehw sepahs emos tniap og..." ( "...go paint some shapes where you make art.")
- The last picture in the end credits of this episode was also used in the Season 2 and 3 end credits.
- All of these kids appear in the next episode, Going Places! with Min making a cameo appearance.
- The bottle containg the map was actually a leather-wrapped chianti bottle that Stephen White purchased from a garage sale.
- According to the Barney Says segment, the gang used yellow, red and blue paint to paint shapes but in the actual program, more than these 3 paint colors are used.
