Title card

Rock with Barney is the eighth and final video in the Barney & The Backyard Gang series. It was released exclusively in Neiman Marcus stores in August 1, 1991. This video had a wide release on January 27, 1992.


Adam's mother takes Barney and the Backyard Gang to a TV studio where she works. While there, Barney and the Backyard Gang tour the studio on their own, while producing their own show. From a cereal commercial set and a puppet show and the six little ducks and teddy bears and the US flag and an island paradise and a make up place to a jungle, the show is filmed along with many props in the studio. With the power of imagination and some movie magic, anything is possible when Barney's around.

    • The first time Barney comes to life completely on-screen.
    • The first time Barney wears something for when he comes to life.
