Barney Wiki

"Play Ball!" is the tenth episode from fourth season of Barney & Friends.


Barney shows the children his new "Vend-O-Ball" machine. When a button is pushed, it dispenses a variety of balls. Barney tells the children not to push the red button it's not working properly. Barney and the children do warm-up exercises with balls. They are joined by Baby Bop, who wants to play ball games, too. The Vend-O-Ball allows the group to share a giant cage ball, try some bowling, and even do a bit of miniature golfing! But when Barney and the children are busy elsewhere, Scooter talks to Baby Bop into pushing the red button… and colorful chaos ensues!
