Barney Live! In New York City (Originally titled Barney Live! At Radio City) is a Barney live show that was performed at Radio City Music Hall in New York City from March 5-13, 1994. It was later released on video on August 3, 1994, which became the first Barney video in the Classic Collection series.

Plot

Barney and his friends take the stage to delight and entertain everyone at Radio City Music Hall. They all work together to make a special surprise for the audience using items from "The Barney Bag". But before they are able to share it, a new visitor, The Winkster, sneaks away with the bag! Throughout the show, the kids are trying to catch The Winkster The chase takes everyone to "Barney's Imagination Circus" with fun-loving clowns and some dancing bears. After the circus ends, the chase continues. The Winkster later confesses that he took the bag in order to make friends. Barney and the gang forgive him for his misdeeds and remind him that he just needs to ask to be friends. Barney then unveils the surprise to the audience: a glittered stuffed heart. He asks everyone to use their imaginations to make the heart bigger. After the unveiling of the bigger heart, Barney, BJ, Baby Bop, Winkster, and the kids wrap up the show with "Everyone is Special".

Behind the Scenes

Trivia

  • This live show marked:
    • The only major live show not to tour.
    • The first time that Barney is partially-performed by Carey Stinson on home video. Stinson was Barney's Double, used for only "quick changes". Stinson had previously done birthday parties and live appearances as the purple dinosaur and would continue to do so until he replaced David Joyner in 2001 on the TV series.
    • The first appearance of Carlos who would later return as a main character in Season 3
    • The only time Derek and Carlos appear together.
    • The last time Kathy is seen with her teddy bear.
    • The only appearances of Kelly and The Winkster. Rebecca Wilson (Kelly) would later return as a dancer in Barney's Colorful World!
    • The last time Derek appears as a regular cast member. He would later return with Tina as special guests in the Season 3 episode, "On the Move". 
    • The final video appearances of the 1993-1994 Baby Bop costume and the 1994 BJ costume. They would later be used in Barney books and other live appearances.
    • The first time BJ is seen riding his scooter.
    • BJ's first live performance on home video.
  • "I Love You" wasn't sung in order to give the show its own identity, as Lyons' lawyers often stated. A lawsuit involving the song discouraged them from using it in the live show.
  • Carlos and Kelly sort of have minor roles, since they are never seen after they take Baby Bop's tricycle to the back of the clubhouse, until the number And I Am A Fine Musician.
  • All of the dialogue (including that of Barney and the other dinos) was live for every performance, unlike future Barney shows. The songs, however, were pre-recorded.
  • Some songs from this live show were featured in the Barney's Favorites Vol. 2 album. Specifically, the songs, "My Yellow Blankey", "BJ's Song", "The Barney Bag", and "My Aunt Came Back".
  • During "Please and Thank You", BJ lip-syncs to the lyrics, though he does not sing the song.
  • After the "Please and Thank You" song, a camera angle shows Kelly giving her sign to someone backstage.
  • According to a Variety review, Min was absent from the March 6 performance.
  • The circus scenes were included as a bonus feature on the Barney's Super Singing Circus DVD.
  • When this Video was aired during the PBS Pledge drives in 1995, the Barney Theme Song, The More We Get To Together, Mr. Knickerbocker, Rain Medley, If All The Raindrops, And the Green Grass Grows All Around, Me and My Teddy weren't sung. This is also the one and rarest times that the Barney Theme Song wasn't sung/edited out during the Pledge Drives.
