"Howdy, Friends!" is the ninth episode from the fifth season of Barney & Friends.


A make-believe game of "cowboys" takes an imaginative turn when a tumbling tumbleweed leads the group to Buckaroo Barney's Dude Ranch. The children learn about real cowboys as they try on authentic western wear and have a real chuck wagon dinner of "beans and biscuits." Through the Adventure Screen, Barney shows the young cowpokes what modern cowboys do. Later the children meet the "Riders in the Sky" cowboys, who delight the group with a western song and some simple lessons about doing things "the cowboy way!"
