"Hop To It!" is the fourth episode from the first season of Barney & Friends.


It's exercise day. Time for Barney to show his Friends that turning young bodies into strong bodies can be great fun! How does he do it? With a grand group of games, puzzles and twists and turns. Barney's buddies put on a fantastic follow-the-leader, they play "animals in motion" and Barney himself leads the gang in a great version of "shape-up freeze." The children find out you can do big things if you stick to it. And how good it feels to keep your body movin'.

International Edits

  • In the Israeli version of this episode (which is called "Hands on the Head" in that production), after the kids get Barney unstuck, if one look carefully behind the tree, they can see Baby Bop. Also in the same scene the "Barney Theme Song" is heard.
  • In the Israeli version of this episode, when the kids were looking for Dana, the Barney doll can be seen even though Barney had already came to life after Dana sung her sad song.
  • Also in the Israeli version of this episode, the song, "Animals in Motion" was shortened.
