An entourage of children greet the crowd. They wish that Barney could join the festivities and, with a "Shimbaree, Shimbarah!," the big purple guy magically shows up on his very own float. Barney reveals he has a surprise for everyone in a giant present, which is revealed to be Baby Bop. Barney and Baby Bop encourage everyone to sing along with them to a few of their favorite songs.


  1. The Welcome Song
  2. Barney Theme Song
  3. Mr. Knickerbocker
  4. Peanut Butter
  5. Everyone is Special
  6. I Love You


The success of the Street Celebration led The Lyons Group and Universal to consider a permanent home for Barney at the park. In November 1994, A Day in the Park with Barney was announced and opened in July the following year.


  • Local children from the Orlando area auditioned to be in the ensemble.
