  • This season marked:
  • Despite the second half of the season airing in 2000, all 20 episodes were filmed and produced by 1999.
  • "Itty Bitty Bugs" and "Five Kinds of Fun!" are the only Season 6 episodes to utilize the Barney costume from Season 5. This could possibly be because these were the first two episodes that were filmed for this season and the new Barney costume for this season wasn't completed yet when those two episodes were being filmed.
  • Stephen starts wearing glasses this season.
  • Hannah's ears were pierced this season.
  • The names on the cubbies in the classroom from left to right are: Chris, Zach, Amy, Jeff, Robert, Keesha, Stephen, Hannah, Dennis, Jill/Linda, Emily, and Lauren. Jill and Linda share the same cubby.
  • In this season, Scooter McNutty and Miss Etta Kette appear less frequently than they did the previous two seasons.
  • Starting in this season, Mera Baker (Keesha) does the fundings for the show. Reruns of Season 4-5 would use her recording. Season 7-8 also use her recording. Along with Mera Baker (Keesha) doing the fundings for the show, the fundings itself have changed from "Barney & Friends was made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the financial support of Viewers Like You and by (sponsors)" to "Barney & Friends was made possible by: (sponsors) and by contributions from your PBS stations from Viewers Like You! Thank You!" and This would last until the end of the series but with different backgrounds and announcers and sponsors.
