Barney Wiki

Barney's Magical Musical Adventure is a 1992 direct-to-video Barney Home Video that was released exclusively to J.C. Penney stores on August 2, 1992. It had a wide release on January 27, 1993.


Barney's friends are playing in Derek's backyard while building a sand castle. When they wish they could visit a real castle, Barney takes them to a magical forest. While using their imagination, beyond the gate lies a magical forest, filled with musical flowers.

After following the trail of castle signs, Barney and his friends take a break where they discover echos. They try echoing different silly sounds before an unknown voice responds to their echo, causing Barney and his friends to scurry off.

Later down the trail, Barney and his friends discover a bridge. Before crossing, Twynkle the Elf magically appears, informing the group that she was the voice they heard previously. Before allowing them to cross the bridge, she tells the group that they must do three things: solve a riddle about standing on one finger, perform to "Looby Loo", and be her friend. After completing the three tasks, the group crosses the bridge and approaches the castle gate. Twynkle informs the group that the castle will not open the gate until 3 o'clock. She leaves the group, returning to the bridge, while Barney and his friends wait for the castle to open.

Barney's friends pretend to have a horse race around the castle. After playing with the make-believe horses, the castle finally opens. Upon entering the castle, Barney and his friends meet the king, who has a special wish: he wants to go fishing. The group decides that the kids can watch the castle and Barney can wear the crown while the king is off fishing. The king happily leaves for his fishing trip.

Baby Bop joins the fun, and the group decides to have a royal tea party, filled with mother goose rhymes. After finding a trunk of musical instruments, the kids decide to put on a musical show for Barney and Baby Bop. Baby Bop goes home, and the king returns to the castle. The king makes the children princes and princesses, claiming that they can visit any time. Using their imagination, the kids pass through a castle door and return to Derek's backyard. Barney reminds his friends that they can feel like princes and princesses every day at home.

Behind the Scenes


  • This video marked:
  • This video was released exactly 1 year after Rock with Barney was released widely.
  • This group (Michael, Derek, Tina, Min) also appeared in "A Splash Party, Please".
  • Rick Wetzel (who plays The King) is the father of Susannah Wetzel (who plays the role of Julie).
  • Min would later make a reference to this video in Sing And Dance With Barney.
  • The 1992 JCPenney Wishbook errenously refers to the video as "Barney and the Magical Musical Flying Carpet". In fact, this video was originally intended to be about Barney and the kids traveling to different locations on a magic carpet, along with a pianist and a grand piano. However, Stephen White pointed out that the idea couldn't possibly work, as a carpet could hold Barney, the kids and a concert grand piano with a pianist would have been absolutely huge and baffling when flying through the air. In addition, he also pointed out that any kind of classical or semi-classical piano playing wouldn't be right for a preschool audience. The video was eventually reworked to “Barney's Magical Musical Adventure” which involved Barney and the kids visiting a castle.
  • In the beginning of the "Barney Theme Song", the 1992-1995 Barney Home Video Logo was shown instead of the Season 1 logo.
  • Production for this video began in July 1992.
