Barney Wiki

"It's a Happy Day!" is the seventeenth episode from the seventh season of Barney & Friends. It's a semi-remake of "Oh, What A Day!".


It's an extra special day when Beth invents a new holiday called "Happy Day". The kids can make a wish for something that will make them happy - and the others try to make the wish come true. Barney and the kids discuss faces and feelings and the ways people show they're happy - by laughing or hugging. Dogs wag their tails, and cats show they're happy when they purr, which leads to singing "Three Little Kittens". When the kids pretend to be robots, they discover that sad feelings are better than no feelings at all. BJ's wish to take a fishing trip changes when Beth has an unexpected accident that makes her "Happy Day" a sad one. When BJ sings a silly song for Beth, everyone is happy. Barney reminds the kids that the best happiness of all is doing things for others.
