Miss Etta Kette is a character who appears in Seasons 4-6 of Barney & Friends. She is a bird who speaks with a Southern accent and lives in the treehouse with Scooter McNutty.

She was puppeteered and voiced by the late Brice Armstrong.


Miss Etta Kette's name is a play on the word Etiquette. She usually gives very good advice, and bad things often happen to those who do not heed her advice. One of the most notable instances of this effect appears in the episode, "Circle of Friends", as Miss Etta warns BJ about not eating too much. He promptly ignores this, overeating and eventually learning that she was right all along.
