Barney Wiki

"Pot Full of Sunshine" is the second part of the eighth episode from the eleventh season of Barney & Friends.


Baby Bop is playing with Barney and the kids when she discovers a lonely little flower (a gerber daisy, according to the book Eva has). She puts it in a pot and raises it on her own. Later that day, it blooms into a full flower. However, the next day is chilly and the flower is drooping and is missing all the petals. Barney explains that the flower died, due to the cold weather, which makes Baby Bop terribly sad. Barney and the kids help Baby Bop cheer up by reminding her that they'll always be there for her no matter what happens. Then, she learns that some flowers don't last that long, though others survive the harsh winters and return in the spring. This brings Baby Bop back to her cheery self, as she is excited to take care of the flowers when spring comes around.

  • The story that Baby Bop was reading to her flower, "The Little Star that Fell from the Sky", would soon be told in the season eleven episode, "Starlight, Star Bright".
  • The Roku release of this episode erroneously refers to it as "A Pot Full of Sunshine".
