  • This season was announced in December 2004, and production and filming for this season took place from July 15, 2005 to February 20, 2006.
  • This season marked:
  • At a 47 kid cast, this season has the largest cast of any season. However, the kids are significantly downplayed, so that this season could focus on Barney and the dinosaurs. The kids rarely have any lines or get to sing. In fact, Jamal and Michael are the only two kids that get to sing this season: Jamal sang "Look at Me I'm Dancing!" and Michael sang "I Can See It on Your Face" with Barney.
  • Like in Season 9, Barney comes to life during the end of the theme song, not during the episode.
  • The reason Season 10 (and 11) got episodes cut in half was so that it could appeal to international broadcasters.
  • Jackson is the only kid from Season 8 to appear in this season. However, Mario returns while the actors who portrayed Kami, Nick and Beth made guest appearances as other characters.
  • Other than the "Barney Theme Song" and "I Love You", the song "A Friend Like You" appeared in every episode in this season (this serves as the closing theme to the first half of each episode).
  • The following episodes this season have alternate endings that did have the song I Love You sung, that can either be seen in HIT Favorites episode videos, the UK iTunes, Season 14, Netflix For Extra and The Kindle:
