  • 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.

    • A treehouse with a porch was added. 
  • A new walking animation is used for the Barney & Friends logo.
