The Cast and Crew

  • This season marked:
  • The first fifteen episodes were originally broadcasted with longer credits, similar to the first two seasons. Starting in September 1995, all episodes were re-edited to contain shorter credits. However, the UK airings of the last five episodes of this season as well as the US and Spanish releases of Riding In Barney's Car and the screener and Spanish versions of Barney's All Aboard For Sharing used the longer credits.
  • In a rare move, this is the first season to have an episode release on video before its TV premiere which was Are We There Yet? in which would be named Riding In Barney's Car.
  • The last five episodes of the season were broadcasted under the "Back to School with Barney" programming block. 
  • The Baby Bop and BJ costumes become shorter to represent their respective ages.
  • For this season, with the exception of Ship, Ahoy!Stella the Storyteller uses props to act out the stories. 
  • Kathy is no longer seen with her teddy bear.
  • The Barney Bag has been modified with a brighter look and this design of the bag would be used until Season 6.
  • Due to moving to a new studio, the entire set was reconstructed:
    • The playground is larger with a reconstructed playset. Instead of a bridge, the playset has a lookout tower. 
    • A treehouse with a porch was added. 
  • A new walking animation is used for the Barney & Friends logo.
  • Although the tire swing from the playground was removed after season 1, a promo shot featuring the Barney doll on a tire swing with a rainbow appearing above him on it is shown during the theme song for this season.
  • Filming for this season was originally scheduled for May 1994. But due to the lawsuit over the "I Love You" song, the production was pushed back to November 1994. 
  • This season was filmed at The Studios at Las Colinas in Irvin, Texas, and would continue to be produced there through Season 6. 
  • The production for this season began on November 1994 and ended on March 1995.
  • Initially, in the first draft for Barney's Great Adventure, All of the kids cast for this season, including Derek, appeared in the opening scene as cameos. Also, according to the original script, Marcella is Tosha's cousin. This scene probably got cut because, by the time they started filming, the cast was too old.
