"Colors All Around" is the eighth episode from the fifth season of Barney & Friends.


Mr. Boyd needs help deciding what color to paint the cafeteria wall. The children help him decide by exploring the colors with Barney's special color hat. Choosing colored items from the hat prompts them to act out nursery rhymes and sing songs. They also explore new colors that are created when mixing two colors together when they start painting pictures. Barney throws the hat into the air and a rainbow spills out onto the playground: a perfect mural for the hallway.

  • In the Korean version, there is a wooden battery powered train instead of the one in the English version.
  • "I Put a Smile On" is not sung in the Korean adaptation, although the beginning of the instrumental can be heard.
  • This is one of the few Korean episodes to have an American format of the ending in which the kids actually say goodbye to Barney and leave before he turns back into a doll. (Normally, the Korean episodes would have Barney disappear during the second verse of "I Love You", and then pan over to him as a doll when the song ends).


  • This episode marked:
  • When Barney comes to life, extra sparkles can be seen.
  • Kristen is the only female human character in the episode.
  • Chip wore the same shirt that he will later wear in "A Royal Welcome".
  • Curtis wore the same blouse that he previously wore in "Books Are Fun!".
  • It is revealed that BJ's favorite color is yellow (like Baby Bop, Kristen, and Juan).
  • The toy train that appeared in The Treehouse during the song "Down By the Station" was a model of the Western & Atlantic 3, known as "General" made by MTH Electric Trains (Also known as Mike's Train House). It also appeared in "You've Got To Have Art" as a decoration in the school library, and would also be used as a decoration in the caboose from Season 7 to onwards (Most notably A Fountain of Fun).
    • Soon after Barney & Friends ended, Carey Stinson actually kept it along with some of the other trains that appeared in Barney & Friends as well.
