"Try It, You'll Like It!" is the seventh episode from the fifth season of Barney & Friends.


Emily is a little apprehensive about playing soccer because she's never played it before. Stephen tells her that even though he's new at it he finds it fun, and soon she's kicking the ball around like a pro. Danny will be giving a presentation on the night sky in front of the whole class for the first time. He's worried about it, and Barney and the gang help him out by going to the school library, picking out books and helping him get prepared. Baby Bop has always slept with the lights on and now it's time to try sleeping with the lights off, and the kids give her the guts to try it by singing the old song I Used to Be Afraid. Back in the classroom, Stephen and Emily have tried something new by making a pizza. It's sort of a disgusting looking uncooked mess until Barney arrives to fix it up.

We learn in this episode that while it's normal to be a little scared when trying something new, preparing and practicing make it all worthwhile.
