Barney Wiki

Let's Go to the Zoo is a Barney Home Video that was released on August 28, 2001.


BJ makes the trip to the zoo a photo safari, taking pictures of all the animals, while Baby Bop looks for a real elephant to show to her doll "Nelly the Elephant." And there's an unexpected guest - Scooter McNutty - who searches the zoo for an exhibit devoted to the noblest of animals: the squirrel! There's an abundance of animal fun and facts, songs and surprises when Barney takes YOU to the zoo.

Filming Location: Production for this video took place in July 2000 at the Fort Worth Zoo In Texas USA

Home media

  • Originally, this video was supposed to be released on DVD on August 28, 2001 just like the VHS, but the release of the DVD was delayed until April 8, 2003.
  • On September 18, 2001, this video was featured in the Blockbuster Exclusive video, Barney's Island Safari (along with Imagination Island).



Main Article: Barney's Zoo Tour

Barney's Zoo Tour was a tour to promote the home video, "Let's Go to the Zoo". It originally toured at different zoos in the United States from July 2001 until August 2001. It toured UK zoos the following year and in Germany in 2003.





  • This video marked:
  • Although "Love to Read, with Barney" was first, this video was marketed as the first Barney video to be filmed on location. 
  • The screener copy of this video used the Lyrick Studios Screener Warning including the 1998-2001 Lyrick Studios logo as the actual release has the 2001 HIT Entertainment PLC logo.
  • Despite the cover and label of the VHS having the Lyrick Studios logo, the actual tape shows the HIT Entertainment logo. This was due to the company being rebranded around the same time this video was originally released. However, the Lyrick Studios logo was used during the end credits.
  • The 1996 BJ costume is briefly used during the scene where BJ gets wet (This is done so this costume in this video would not get damaged by the splash).
  • During the credits, Tim Dever is incorrectly credited as "Tim Devers".
  • The trailer for this video was originally intended to appear on "Barney's Pajama Party", but use of that trailer on Barney releases was delayed until "Read With Me, Dance With Me". Its only appearance on Barney releases was in "Barney's Outdoor Fun!".
  • Although Harold, Polly, Judith and Makayla's names weren't shown during the end credits, they are simply referred to as child #1, #2, #3, and #4 respectively.
  • A logo showcasing the website to the Fort Worth Zoo where this video was filmed is shown after the end credits.
  • Kate Rafferty Keimig, who portrayed the role of the ticket seller, also appeared in the opening sequence of Come on Over to Barney's House as the mother of Kira Jean Birchfield, Rebecca Spicher and Brandon Shearin.
  • The book "Barney & BJ Go to the Zoo" was presumably made first before this video was made as the photographs from the book were also taken at the same location prior to the video being filmed a year later.
