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


When Tina and Luci are playing basketball, Tina is upset when she can't perform a basketball trick like her sister can. Barney stops by to show Tina all the great things she can do with exercise. Barney and the kids play games and sing songs about exercise and find out how fun it is to learn about their bodies. With new found energy and confidence, Tina ends up being able to do the trick.

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 you look carefully behind the tree, you 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.
