Months later, Grossy Paradela and Pablo Alejandro Glättli wrote what would be their second Barney stage production called El Parque Musical de Barney y sus Amigos, which was a success in Latin America and the Caribbean. From there, they devoted themselves fully to Barney with more successes to come, such as the Latin American version of Barney's Big Surprise in 2005 to 2006 and many more.
