The eleventh season of Barney & Friends premiered on the PBS children's block, PBS Kids from September 17, 2007 to October 12, 2007 and consisted of twenty episodes (40 segments). This season continues off of the format from the previous season. Although Barney comes to life after the theme song in this season as well, some episodes this season depict Barney coming to life in the actual episode. Rather then continuing educational themes tailored for toddlers, which is the viewing audience, this season uses a social-emotional curriculum, which is outside the original target audience of the show.

Continuing off of Season 10, this season brings back a prominent children's cast, that was absent in the previous season as they were reduced to background characters. This season also introduces a new interstitial titled Barney's Music Box, a set of music videos that place Barney in different animated environments.[1]

This was the final season to be produced by Connecticut Public Television, the PBS station that brought Barney & Friends on television.

Production

This season was originally announced to premiere on September 3, 2007[1] before moving the premiere date back to September 17, 2007.

Writing

Around this time, writers were instructed to write "conflict based" episodes, rather than continuing the curriculum format from the previous seasons.[2]

Casting

This season marked the first appearances of Myra, Mei, and Marcos, the final appearances of Laura, Amy, Olivia, Claire, and Kelly, and the final television appearance of Rachel.
