  • This is the seventh time where time-lapse is used. It was Derek racing in his sack.
  • Barney manages to mess up his magic by giving the kids winter clothes, instead of their normal outfits. This very situation happened in Waiting for Santa (with The Barney Shake), but in reverse (Summer clothes, instead of winter clothes).
  • This is the thirteenth time Barney and the kids sing the entire "I Love You" song together.
  • In February 1993, this episode was released on home video as "Barney's Best Manners". This particular version includes closed captions, unlike the original airing of the episode. Reruns would later have them as well.

International Edits

  • The part of the tug of war scene was edited down, the songs "I Try To Be Polite" and "Does Your Chewing Gum Lose Its Flavor?" weren't sung and the kids pretending to shave was deleted.
