Barney Wiki

"Hola, Mexico!" is the twenty-ninth episode of the first season of Barney & Friends.


Luci gets a letter from her grandfather stating how his birthday party was in Mexico and how he wished she could've been there too. While Luci wishes that she could've gone, Barney and the kids do the next best thing by throwing a fiesta of their own. The fun begins with Mexican instruments and Barney's friend Rebecca Garcia, a Mexican folk dancer, comes and dances Los Machetes, along with teaching everyone the dance A La Derecha. From there, the kids make tortillas and chalupas, while Barney helps himself to the chips and salsa (which he quickly realizes the hard way that the salsa is hot and spicy). From a game called San Miguel's Ring and The Itsy Bitsy Spider sung in Spanish, to Looby Loo and a piñata, the fiesta fun keeps going. And to wrap it all up, Luci sings the first verse of I Love You in Spanish and the last verse was sung by Barney and the kids in the English language.

This episode was about an Arabian hafla (a feast), rather than a Mexican fiesta.


When this episode aired on PBS Kids Sprout, the original credits were used, as opposed to the shorter ones used in most reruns.
