Barney Wiki

"BJ's Really Cool House" is the twentieth and final episode, as well as the season finale of the seventh season of Barney & Friends.


The park is a home away from home for Barney and his friends, but BJ wants to build his very own "totally awesome, completely cool" house. While BJ works on his house, Barney teaches the kids about houses and homes through songs such as "That's A Home To Me" and by using his laptop computer to show them a variety of homes from around the world. Following is an impromptu show about fanciful nursery rhyme homes. When a picture puzzle of rooms in a house triggers a series of make-believe activities, a toy kitchen yields yummy macaroni and cheese, and a bubbling bathtub is the right place for Baby Bop's bath. BJ thinks his house is finished but discovers he's forgotten something and needs to make room for someone he loves - Baby Bop! Barney reminds them that a family and loving friends make a house a home.

Jeff Ayers, who portrayed Baby Bop for the rest of the episodes during the season, wasn't able to portray Baby Bop for "BJ's Really Cool House" due to surgery. Due to Ayers being out, the crew brought in Jennifer Gibel, an actress who portrayed Baby Bop in Barney's Musical Castle. During filming, Shelley C. Aubrey, the performance director, had to tell Gibel to match the movements of Ayers.[1]
