Barney Wiki

"Down On Barney's Farm" is the tenth episode from the first season of Barney & Friends.


Painting pictures of animals is fun for the kids - but seeing and touching them is much more fun. That's just what they get to do as Barney turns the schoolyard into a barnyard! An extra guest is Farmer Henderson, who introduces the kids to a duck, a piglet, a lamb, a calf, and even a baby chick which Barney helps holds in this big, warm, purple hands! And there's songs, and games to add to this very lively half-hour.

Behind the Scenes[]


The episode is a play on the song, Down On Grandpa's Farm.

  • This episode marked:
    • The first time no new original Barney songs are featured.
    • The first time that when the kids leave the school while in different outfits and Barney turns back into his doll form, the interior still remains intact at the end of this episode.
    • The first of three episodes to use the magic words Shimbaree, Shimbarah.
  • This group (Derek, Shawn, Luci and Tina) also appeared in "Hi, Neighbor!".
  • "Bought Me a Cat" is the only song ever to be sung in the keys of B-Major, C-Major and D-Flat-Major; all future songs will have just B-Major with a key change to C-Major with the exception of "This Old Man" in "Having Tens Of Fun!" and "I Love You" in "Sing And Dance With Barney".
