  • This video marked:
    • The last home video to feature Bob West voicing Barney. Duncan Brannan and Tim Dever would take over in the next video, Super Singing Circus. However, Bob West's voice can still be heard in Barney's Musical Castle.
    • The last Barney video to be filmed on the classroom set.
    • The first home video in which Scooter McNutty and Miss Etta Kette appear in.
    • The only time Robert and Jill appeared together.
    • The first time Mother Goose appears BJ and Baby Bop.
  • Unlike its Barney & Friends counterpart ("A "Little" Mother Goose"), this home video contained Scooter & Miss Etta's rhymes, Mother Goose land, appearances of Baby Bop and BJ, and a different arrangement of "I Love You" (the episode used the rendition from Seasons 5-6).
  • After not being sung in the franchise for 7 years, "Polly Put the Kettle On" returns in this video since Picture This!, as part of the Tea Party Medley, although it was performed in that episode as "Tosha Put the Kettle On".
  • After not being sung in the franchise for 8 years, "Little Jack Horner" returns in this video since Barney's Magical Musical Adventure, as part of the Tea Party Medley. After this video, it would not be performed for another 6 years until Barney Live! - The Let's Go Tour, as part of the Cookin' with Nursery Rhymes Medley.
  • After not being recited in the franchise for 8 years, "Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater", "Jack Be Nimble" and "Mary, Mary Quite Contrary" returns in this video since Let's Help Mother Goose!
  • In the 2011 re-release of this video, the "Barney Home Video" title on the opening silhouette for the Barney Theme Song was removed, and the title card was changed to "Mother Goose Stories". Also, a Bonus Music CD was included.
  • When the coloring/activity book Alphabet Fun with Mother Goose was included in the 2011 re-release, the "Celebrating 10 Years" logo, from the original release of the pad/book, was not removed for this reprint.
  • In this video, Stella's clock from It's Time For Counting makes a cameo appearance during "The Clock".
  • The preview for this video is announced by Dean Barnett.
  • This video was featured in the Blockbuster Exclusive video, Barney's Rockin' Rhyme Time (along with Rock with Barney).
  • This video was also included on the 6 Barney DVD learning pack.
