"Everyone Is Special" is the thirtieth and final episode from the first season of Barney & Friends.


A big box arrives for Barney. And it couldn't be a more special delivery. Because inside is something that Barney uses to show all his friends how much fun it is to be yourself! Barney invents games and songs that say everyone's special in his or her own way. Baby Bop proves even the very young have very good virtues. Barney even has his buddies dancing like robots to show how boring sameness can be. All in all, a rollicking way to celebrate that every child is "you-nique."

International Edits

  • In the Hebrew co-production version, all of the songs were a semitone lower, with the exception of the Barney Theme Song. The songs "I'm a Little Robot" and "The Sister Song" were not sung, but a short snippet of the intros were heard. In that same version, the reprise of Everyone is Special was shortened, cutting the second verse. Also, in said version, all the kids says goodbye to Barney twice in a row and leave.
