My Party with Barney is a personalized Barney Home Video that was released on April 10, 1998. A parent/child who wished to purchase this video had to send in a photo of the child and said child's name, and as the previews said "[they would] do the rest."

- This video marked:
- The first video in which Barney is voiced by Duncan Brannan. He previously voiced him during Season 4 once Bob West left production to film Barney's Great Adventure, but soon returned to dub over his lines.
- The only video to have its runtime shorter than approximately 30 or 50 minutes unlike all the other Barney video releases which contain that same duration.
- Although Barney was voiced by Duncan Brannan for this video, his singing vocals were provided by Bob West.
- Throughout April 1998, this video was packaged with a personalized book with stickers, called Barney's Alphabet Adventure Book, a 24 page story that also starred the child in the video. It could also be purchased separately after 1998.
- Also unique to the 1998 release was the VHS tape itself being purple as opposed to the usual black or white tape.
- A short-lived DVD version of the video was released in 2007. In the 2007 version, all Kideo crew members were removed from the credits.
- After "Colors All Around", when Barney, Baby Bop, and BJ were going down the stairs, BJ accidentally steps on Barney’s tail twice.
- This video was released on Maurie and Monét Chandler's thirteenth birthday and six years after "Eat, Drink And Be Healthy!" aired.
