Barney Wiki

"Safety First!" is the third episode from the fifth season of Barney & Friends. It’s a semi-remake of "Playing It Safe" and "Stop, Look and Be Safe!".


Baby Bop is taking her self-appointed role as safety officer very seriously. She instructs the children on ways to ensure a safe environment: how to carefully walk down the stairs, wear a helmet when riding a bike, and follow safety rules when crossing streets. With the help of the Adventure Screen, the children learn about people who keep us safe. Even Scooter helps the children and Baby Bop learn about strangers.
