Trivia

  • This live show / video marked:
    • The first major live show to not have any new Barney songs.
    • The fifth and last live show to be released on home video.
    • The only appearances of Mike played by Blake Garrett, Donny played by Alex Collins, Sarah played by Tory Green, and Gina played by Alexis Acosta. However, prior to this, Sarah (Tory Green) made her first cameo in the trailer of Come on Over to Barney's House and appeared in the Barney Says segment in It's Your Birthday, Barney.
    • The only time Stacy and Laura appeared together.
  • This video was released the same day "All About Me" premiered.
  • Rebecca Wilson (who played Kelly in Barney Live! In New York City) was credited as a dancer.
  • In the first quarter of the tour, Hayden Tweedie reprised her role of Sarah. She was replaced by Tory Green in fall 2003.
    • On that note, this Barney stage show marks the only national tour and the first stage show since Barney Live! In New York City to feature child cast members from the show reprising their roles.
    • Although Hayden isn't seen reprising her role as Sarah in this video, she is seen portraying her character in the book version of this video.
  • To promote the video release of the tour, Barney, Baby Bop, BJ and the polar bear from the show performed "It's C-C Cold BRRRR!" in 2004 for the 78th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
  • When this live show was released on video, it was edited with scenes of season nine's cast members (Stacy, Laura, and Jackson). The beginning was also edited, as the beginning of the original stage show had Barney doll spinning on the idea bench before coming to life. Instead, we see the kids imagine Barney putting on a show, which later immediately cuts to Barney coming through the curtains. In the UK and Asia video releases, three British children prepare for a pretend trip with Barney (a Barney plush toy that could be bought in stores, like in the US version) and imagine going on a trip. One of the kids spins the globe and from there, it transitions to Barney coming through the curtains (much like in the US opening).
  • In the show itself, a Barney doll sat on the idea bench before the show started. Right after the overture, the Idea Bench started to spin with a timpani roll, smoke arising from behind it. The spinning became increasingly faster as the bench went farther back. When the costumed Barney came through the curtains, the doll on the bench appeared to vanish. This was achieved with a part of the bench that was separate from the rest of the bench. The Barney doll was actually attached to this platform. This small platform for the doll flipped upside down, the front of the hollow, bottomless seat hiding the doll when the costumed Barney appeared, insuring that the two were never seen at the same time. The top of the Barney doll's head can be seen under the right bench seat in various shots of the home video. The outline of the bottom the platform can be seen on this seat of the bench as well. In addition to the live version this is the only time where we hear a male announcer saying "When we play in the park with Barney, we spin around on the idea bench and use our imaginations. If you want to play with Barney, use your imagination." rather than the "Today's appearance of Barney is made possible by your imagination" announcement.
  • The video was filmed at the Dodge Theater in Phoenix, Arizona in March 2004.
  • The North American tour was presented by "Toys "R" Us".
  • Unlike the two previous stage show videos, there is no intermission scenes or references in this one.
